Want a surefire way to treat skin laxity but are not too sure where to start looking?
One may think dermal fillers are the only go-to for treating fine lines and wrinkles, but there are many viable options out there…
Take, for instance, Profhilo — an effective skin booster that is neither a dermal filler nor a biorevitaliser but a unique injectable that remodels skin tissues to promote elasticity and firmness. At Canova Medical in Wilmslow, Cheshire, we offer Profhilo as a viable alternative to dermal fillers to restore years to your appearance. A one-on-one consultation with our medical specialists can help determine whether this treatment is just right for you.
- Enjoy VIP discretion: You’ll never see another patient at Canova Medical, so your Profhilo treatments will be performed in utter confidence.
- Highly experienced team: Not only is the quality of the products important but so is the experience of the Surgeon who will be performing your procedure. The Canova Medical team is skilled, qualified, and experienced – you can meet the team here.
- Results that you’ll love: Whether you want dramatic results or subtle results… the choice is yours. You can see what our patients say about us, and also view some of the Before and After Photos taken at our clinic.
- Pre-treatment Consultation: In order for our Surgeon to give you the results you need, he will take the time to know you and your preferences. This takes place during your half-hour non-surgical treatment consultation with the Surgeon who will be administering your treatment.
Here’s some information to help you decide if Profhilo injectables are right for you, though this will be covered in far more detail at your Consultation. If you have any other questions, please do contact us. Our friendly team is here to help guide you! Don’t let the years on your skin show. Profhilo injectables in Cheshire can make you look and feel young once again in just two treatment sessions.
Profhilo is an injectable anti-ageing and skin-remodelling treatment that works to effectively hydrate and tighten skin tissues. Being a skin booster that contains one of the highest hyaluronic acid (HA) concentrations on the market, Profhilo injectables give immediate results, visibly improving skin elasticity and firmness. When injected into the skin, the first of the two-phase Profhilo treatment is initiated, which involves hydration as water is drawn deep into the dermal layers. The second phase involves stimulating the production of elastin and collagen — these are proteins essential for keeping your skin healthy-looking and firm. These stages set off the tissue remodelling process which is what ultimately enables you to see visible improvements in your skin as a result of effective tightening and lifting. Profhilo is very versatile, with treatment areas ranging from the face to the neck down to the arms and to the rest of the body.
The ingredients that make up Profhilo injectables are bonded using heat as opposed to dermal fillers which are chemically bonded. As a result, even though both products are gel-like injectables, Profhilo has a much runnier consistency, meaning it swiftly spreads out and is easily absorbed when injected into the skin. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo does not require any massaging and also does not leave behind any unwanted bumps or lumps.
So long as you have realistic expectations of the results you will achieve from the treatment, you can be considered a good candidate for Profhilo regardless of age, gender, or skin type. It is particularly well-suited for those patients that have just started to notice the very first signs of ageing so that skin laxity can be addressed as soon as possible. Patients who may not be good candidates are pregnant or breastfeeding women as well as those who have known allergic reactions to certain substances in the injectables. Whether this treatment is right for you will be determined by your Surgeon during the initial consultation where your medical history will be fully assessed.

You will be fully informed about what you need to do before the treatment; however, minimal preparation is usually needed prior to getting Profhilo injectables done. In general, you may be asked to temporarily stop taking certain food supplements and medications such as NSAIDs, and avoid the consumption of alcohol and fish oils before your treatment session.
Relax in the elegant surroundings of our Cheshire cosmetic surgery clinic.
Because you will have had a 30-minute Consultation with your Surgeon prior to your treatment, he will know exactly what to do. He’ll make sure that you’re happy and comfortable… the treatment itself is very quick. No local anaesthetic is required. You’ll be invited to stay for a while in the Reception area after your treatment, as we want you to be sure that you’re feeling 100% before you leave. You’ll have the area to yourself for at least half an hour (so there’s no chance of you being seen by anyone).
Although Profhilo treatments are known to be quite safe, you may experience side effects that are usually expected to last for about 24 hours or up to a few days post-treatment. Some of these are:
- Discomfort at the injection site
- Mild bruising
- Slight swelling
- Some redness or discolouration
While you will be given all the aftercare instructions you need after the treatment session is complete, you will typically be asked to adhere to the following:
- Do not apply makeup for at least the next 24 hours in order to avoid irritation
- Do not undergo any additional cosmetic treatments for the next two days as this may affect your results
- Do not engage in strenuous or high-impact physical activity for the next 24 hours
- Avoid swimming for at least two days post-treatment
- Avoid saunas or prolonged exposure to the sun for the first few days after your treatment session
- Consult your Surgeon should any side effects persist for longer than expected
In order to see visible improvements in your skin, it is generally recommended to schedule two Profhilo treatments spaced four weeks apart. While results can typically be expected to last between four to six months with noticeable skin elasticity and firmness, longevity will depend on several factors such as age, lifestyle, and severity of skin laxity. Since the results are not permanent, follow-up sessions will need to be scheduled every four to six months in order to maintain the results.
