Skin boosters and Profhilo

Skin boosters

Skin boosters are injectable hyaluronic acid treatments that are injected directly into the dermis of the skin. There are many hyaluronic acid-based skin boosters available with different properties to address different concerns. For example, Profhilo, Teosyal and Juvederm Volite.

They reduce the signs of ageing including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and dehydrated saggy skin. They can be used to give overall skin rejuvenation or more targeted treatment of perioral lines, smile lines or neck lines and wrinkles.

Skin booster treatments will vary in frequency depending on your concern and on the physical properties of that skin booster. This will all be discussed during your consultation with Dr Bye prior to any treatments being performed.


Profhilo is a revolutionary skin booster injectable treatment of hyaluronic acid which reduces the signs of ageing including loss of skin elasticity, dehydration and fine lines and wrinkles.  It is revolutionary in its physical properties which allow it to be used on the body as well as the face and is a very popular sort after treatment due to the results it achieves.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally synthesised in the dermal layer of the skin.    When injected directly into the dermis it can be used to reduce the appearance of sagging or loosening of the skin, folds, lines, wrinkles and to reshape areas of the face that have lost volume due to ageing.  It has the added benefit of being very hydrating as it attracts water molecules. This allows for a plumping and firming affect and gives a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 

Just like your own bodies hyaluronic acid; hyaluronic acid degrades slowly over time and is naturally broken down by enzymes in the dermis layer of your skin. 

Profhilo is administered by injection directly into the dermis. Depending on the area treated you may need to have topical local anaesthetic cream applied prior to treatment to minimise discomfort.  

Two treatments four weeks apart is considered optimal.

Results are visible after the first treatment but the best results are visible at around four weeks after the second treatment.  Your skin will appear more hydrated, healthy and youthful.

Profhilo and other skin boosters can be used to treat:

  • Dehydrated, dull skin
  • Loss of skin elasticity due to ageing
  • Facial lines and wrinkles for example smile lines from the mouth to the cheeks
  • Neck lines and wrinkles
  • Ageing in the decolletage area
  • ‘Mummy tummy’ or sagging skin due to weight loss
  • Sagging skin on the legs and knees as we age or lose weight
  • Sagging skin in the upper arms as we age or lose weight
  • Ageing hands with thin wrinkly skin

    Before & After

    ‘I have recently had my first Profhilo treatment and even though it is still early days, I can already feel and see that my skin is much more hydrated and firmer, it looks so healthy and younger.

    It was a quick treatment and although a little uncomfortable at times it was not painful. Dr Louise Bye was amazing. She was gentle and professional and I felt fully at ease.  Would definitely recommend having this treatment as I have already received compliments on how radiant I look.’
