While most anti-aging products and treatments are made for facial skin, the skin in other areas of the body is also susceptible to aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin also show up on the arms, abdomen, and legs. Profhilo® Body can help address these concerns by boosting essential skin proteins and hydrating aging skin.
Very successfully used already used on the face, neck, and decolletage, Profhilo can also be used on other parts of the body. Profhilo® Body is a new addition to the brand’s range of treatments for restoring the tone and elasticity of the skin and improving its overall integrity.
Profhilo is a bio-remodeling injectable used for treating skin laxity and hydrating the skin. It is made with pure hyaluronic acid or HA, consisting of two different molecular weights of HA (low and high). It helps replace the loss of collagen and elastin and stimulate their natural production, improving the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
How does Profhilo Body work?
Profhilo Body remodels the tissue and improves skin laxity by stimulating the production of collagen (4 types) and elastin. It has low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (L-HA) that hydrates and regenerates the skin, and high molecular weight (H-HA), which helps reduce sagging by providing a lifting effect.
This bio-remodeling product is injected beneath the skin’s surface, slowly releasing hyaluronic acid. It then attracts and holds water from the body, which improves skin hydration and tone. It uses the BAP (bio-aesthetic points) technique for the body areas, which consists of only 10 points of injection.
Profhilo is a stabilized product, which is why after the treatment, it lasts in the skin around 28 days, delivering lasting moisture and improvement in skin laxity. It continues to produce collagen and elastin, which is beneficial in tightening loose skin. Profhilo can help reverse the signs of aging by improving overall tissue skin quality.
PROFHILO® BODY KIT – THE PROFHILO BODY TREATMENT PROTOCOL
The Profhilo® Body Kit provides a complete treatment for body skin laxity. This includes the:
- Profhilo injectable – administered at the medical aesthetic clinic.
- Profhilo Figura Body Patch – placed after the treatment to hydrate the skin and reduce redness.
- Profhilo Figura Body Cream – applied at home to maintain the results and restore tone and elasticity while also deeply moisturizing the skin.
Before the procedure, topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. Then, using very fine needles, the aesthetic doctor injects the Profhilo Body just below the skin. The exact points on which the Profhilo will be injected have already been marked and predetermined. This is through the BAP technique, which consists of 10 points for each area.
Once it is injected, Profhilo Body spreads out evenly beneath the skin because of the high concentration of HA. After the treatment, the Figura Body Patch is placed on the skin to moisturize the area and minimize redness. The last part of the treatment is the Figura Body Cream, applied at home to tone, hydrate, and moisturize the skin.
The treatment is quick. It can be done in 30 minutes, but it still depends on the size of the treatment area and the amount of injectable used.

- Reinvigorates crepey skin
- Moisturizes the skin deeply
- Minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles

What are the treatable areas?
Profhilo Body is specifically designed for treating mild body skin laxity or skin that has lost firmness and structure. It is particularly recommended for the brachial areas, abdomen, and other areas affected by laxity. The injectable is suitable for areas, such as the:
- Upper arms
- Inner thighs (above the knees)
Is Profhilo Body safe?
Yes, Profhilo is safe and FDA-approved. It consists of stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally found in the body. This injectable, furthermore, does not have any chemical cross-linking agents like BBDE, which allows for a safer treatment with little to no side effects.
Does the procedure hurt?
Most patients do not feel any major discomfort, as the procedure is quick and the needle used to administer the injectable is very fine. Topical numbing cream can be used before the procedure to improve patient comfort.
Are there any side effects?
As with any other injectables, you may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the treatment site. This is temporary and normally resolves on its own between 2 and 3 days after the procedure.
Is there downtime?
There is minimal to no downtime after the procedure, so you can resume your daily activities. Make sure not to touch or massage the treatment area for about six hours and avoid strenuous exercise following the treatment, as well as saunas and steam rooms for 24 to 48 hours.
How many Profhilo Body treatments are necessary?
The initial treatment protocol is 2 sessions that are spaced one month apart. This, however, may be modified depending on the needs of the patient.
How long will I have to wait before I see the results?
This varies from patient to patient, as everyone has different skin quality and concerns. Some may notice improvements immediately after the first session, while others may have to wait for weeks to see results.
In general, significant results appear 2 to 3 months after the second Profhilo treatment. Most notice improvements in laxity, elasticity, and the skin’s overall appearance.
How long do the results last?
You can expect the results to last for 6 months, as the HA in Profhilo is naturally broken down after this period. But then again, every patient is unique, which is why the longevity of results can vary depending on the area, the amount of injectable used in the treatment, and the amount or level of HA in the patient’s body.
What results can I expect?
Profhilo delivers gradual and natural-looking results, so many people don’t usually notice that you had this injectable. While it improves the skin’s firmness and elasticity, the results are subtle and not overdone or exaggerated. It treats the skin from the inside out, triggering the body’s natural regeneration cycle and rejuvenating the skin cells.
Can you combine Profhilo Body with other treatments?
Profhilo Body works as a standalone treatment, but it can also be used in combination with other aesthetic treatments. These include injectables, microneedling, and other in-office laser and light-based procedures.
