Profilo® Skin Booster

Neil Bulstrode has a wide experience using Botulinum toxins, such as Botox®, Azzalure® and Dysport®, Fillers such as Juvederm® and Profhilo® Skin Booster. Known as ‘The Injectable Moisturiser’, Profhilo enhances facial contours with the highest concentration of hero ingredient, hyaluronic acid. This pore-plumping treatment is designed to give you glowing skin that’s tighter, smoother and more youthful-looking, helping to fill fine lines and soften wrinkles instantly.

While the dose of hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, a cocktail of slow-release ingredients encourages the production of collagen and elastin. Neil Bulstrode will expertly administer your perfect Profhilo dose to elevate luminosity, treat skin laxity and improve the quality of skin tissue for a rejuvenated look.

For your first Profhilo procedure, it’s recommended you have two treatments administered around four to six weeks apart to deliver optimal skin-boosting results. To prolong the effects, try maintenance treatments every four months thereafter. Dull, dehydrated, lacklustre skin will be a thing of the past.
