Frequently Asked Questions

Profhilo helps the skin by stimulating the collagen that is naturally lost over time. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and hydration in our skin. By reintroducing the natural substance of hyaluronic acid to the skin through key injection points, we can promote healthier and fresher skin. It creates support and structure to give the skin bounce, providing a healthier complexion and improved texture. 

The overall result is smooth and wrinkle free skin that helps to prevent signs of ageing.



Due to the treatment being non-surgical in nature, there is little to no pain involved in Profhilo injections. Of course, everyone has a different pain threshold, but when performed by our expert practitioners the procedure is described as a slight pinch to the skin. The needles used for this treatment are extremely thin to allow for minimal discomfort and improved accuracy for our practitioners.

Different areas of the face will have more nerve endings, meaning these areas can be more sensitive than others. We recommend the use of a topical anaesthetic to soothe the area and remove any discomfort. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority.



Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Side effects from Profhilo injections commonly keep to the site of the injection and often only take a few days to settle. The most common side effects include: 

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity

Any potential side effects will be discussed further at the pre-treatment consultation with a member of the VIVA team.  Your practitioner will discuss relevant medical history to provide an informed recommendation for your course of treatment. 

Our medical team is led by Dr Rupert, who is considered one of the most experienced injectors in the UK. Having treated over one million patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.



Initial results may be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however the product does take some time to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.  The results will be most visible in 4 weeks, with the final result of youthful, hydrated, and glowing skin around 8 weeks. 

 

The Profhilo injectables that we use at our clinics usually last around 6 months following the second treatment, with longevity varying naturally from patient to patient. We recommend a follow-up appointment around 6 to 9 months after your second treatment to assess results. Follow-up appointments will allow us to top up the Profhilo, to maintain hydration and glow for as long as possible.

The exact length might change based on how well the patient follows aftercare guidance and looks after their skin following the treatment. Our aestheticians will be happy to discuss specifics at your initial consultation.



Profhilo results will usually last around 9 months, but you can increase the longevity of your results and maintain healthier skin in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your Profhilo treatment, we recommend a combination of the following.

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Regular follow-up treatments.

We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous for your unique circumstance.

At VIVA, we only hire doctors and nurses with a strong background in the NHS, with a minimum of three years in aesthetics. Our MD, Dr Rupert Critchley, is involved in the training of other medical practitioners for Allergan, the company behind Juvéderm and Botox. 

You can be sure that you will be in the best hands; safety is our primary concern, and we work to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, before, during and after your treatment.



This treatment is suitable for anyone noticing signs of ageing skin and looking to tackle it at the root. It is especially useful to treat noticeable skin laxity, dryness, and deeper lines.

This treatment is extremely versatile and personalised to deliver rejuvenation and hydration to your skin for an all-around refreshed look. The stimulated collagen production ensures a tightening effect that will help to mitigate future ageing signs like wrinkles.
