Bioremodelling at The London Face and Skin Clinic
Dr Richard Etok is proud to introduce PROFHILO®, the new ground-breaking ally fighting ageing. to the clinic.
PROFHILO® nourishes the dermal cells and restores firmness of the skin, with a prolonged duration, an effective and natural looking non surgical facelift treatment.
PROFHILO® is not a filler, it’s the first injectable hyaluronic acid for skin bioremodelling. PROFHILO® cures wrinkles rather than filling wrinkles.
The hybrid complexes generate a dual action:
- Hydrating and stimulating action, related to low molecular weight (L-HA) HYDRO
- Dermal scaffold action (support), related to high molecular weight (H-HA) LIFT
What is PROFHILO®?
The key to PROFHILO® popularity is a unique structure and balance of scientific properties, including a high cohesivity, that allow the product to flow freely through subcutaneous tissue and the dermis, in a way that traditional hyaluronic acid fillers cannot.
This makes PROFHILO® ideal for anatomically challenging areas that have been difficult to volumize previously, such as the forehead, neck, hands and submalar regions.
PROFHILO® won’t produce lumps and bumps in these or other areas. Even if it’s injected as a bolus or lump, it flows spontaneously within the fat compartments and dermis to fill them evenly within 24 to 48 hours.
PROFHILO is complementary rather than competitive to other hyaluronic acid fillers.
It’s a state-of-the-art tool for skin restoration that we can combine with the fillers we already use to finesse our results.
Hydrolift® Action is an innovative approach aimed at counteracting the physiological reduction of hyaluronic acid in the skin, restoring hydration, elasticity and skin tone.
PROFHILO® has a high total hyaluronic acid concentration of 32 mg/mL, but a remarkably low extrusion force that makes it easy to inject.
Hybrid complexing allows Profhilo to provide greater benefits than each type of hyaluronic acid it contains, without the disadvantages.
The Profhilo comes as 2ml syringe.
So why PROFHILO®?
Biocompatible because it’s composed of a highly pure grade hyaluronic acid produced by biofermentation.
Secure due to its high purity and absence of additives, PROFHILO® offers greater safety and therefore reduced side effects.
Effective the patented technology of PROFHILO® offers a prolonged duration.
The composition: It’s unique with 64 mg of HA, the result of patented technology;
The injection technique: Only 5 points of injection are needed to offer a maximum comfort treatment.
The treatment protocol: Visible results after only 2 sessions (1 month).

- Long-lasting results which improve over time
- Fewer treatment sessions required
- No swelling following treatment
- Less chance of bruising

How many treatment sessions will I require?
The procedure takes around typically 30-45 minutes. In most situations two sessions approximately 1 month apart will be sufficient.
However, as we are all unique individuals we assess on a case by case process to ensure you finish with the best and most natural result.
Am I a suitable client for injections?
PROFHILO® can be used on a wide variety of clients especially as it does not require prior allergy testing. Those that are pregnant or breast feeding we strongly advise against having treatment.
We carry out a detailed medical history prior to any treatment commencing.
PROFHILO® is suitable for practically anyone, men and women, from 30 years’ old and with no upper age limit.
If you have found that you have lost firmness and plumpness of your skin it is a fantastic option; some of our clients have experienced this after having children, losing weight, or following illness, and have sought our expertise to remedy this.
Which regions can be enhanced?
The BAP technique (bio aesthetic points)
This technique, created for the lower third of the face due to its predisposition to dermal atrophy caused by the aging phenomena:
- reduces the number of injection sites.
- reduces the number of visits.
The BAP technique:
- Identify the 5 BAP injection sites for each side of the face.
- Inject 0.2 ml per bolus at the deep dermal layer.
These 5 points identify the 5 anatomically receptive areas of the face where there is an absence of large vessels and nerve branches, therefore, minimizing the risks while maximizing the diffusion of the product in the malar and submalar areas.
We treat our faces like a work of art, slathering on the best creams, sunscreens, and anti-agers in order to preserve its youthfulness.
But what about your hands?
Other than the occasional manicure, the delicate skin and nails are often overworked and unprotected. Without a targeted regimen to slow down the onset of dark spots and textural changes, the hands can age a person faster than the face. Sun spots, crepey skin, prominent veins and dry patches are signs of aging hands.
The skin on your neck and décolletage is delicate.
If you’ve exposed it to sun, smoked, if you haven’t cleansed, exfoliated and moisturised it the way you have your face, the chances are it’s crepey and wrinkled.
Will affect males and females.
How long will the enhancement last for?
Typically, procedures may last for up to 12 months.
Will my family and friends notice I've had any procedures done?
We believe in being discrete and creating natural subtly changes.
In the vast majority of cases, family and friends do not notice one has had cosmetic treatment done.
People will recognise something has changed, commenting on how refreshed you look and how good your skin is looking, than for them to be precise on exact what kind of treatment one has had.
