Alice Hart-Davis is one of the aesthetic industries most famous journalists and with over 2 decades in the business, she knows a thing or two about cosmetic treatments and what’s new out there to battle ageing and give your skin a rejuvenating boost.
On Tweak Of The Week, she joined Dr Pamela Bonito to discuss and watch a treatment with Profhilo®, a new and non-invasive injectable skincare, which can increase skin hydration, encourage cell turnover and boost collagen and elastin production.

Now here’s a question. Why is Profhilo so popular? It’s a tweakment that seems to have grabbed people’s attention like few others. And what exactly does it do? Here goes. As we get older, the skin's levels of hyaluronic acid start to go down. Hyaluronic acid is one of the things that keep skin looking plumped up and hydrated, so it's no wonder that injectable moisturisers—which are made up of hyaluronic acid—are only getting more popular. There are a number of brands of injectable moisturiser out there, but Profhilo is the one that has caught people's imagination. It is an injectable treatment made from hyaluronic acid but it’s not a filler, it doesn't add volume to the face, but it improves the skin health and strength. One of its big selling points is that it requires far fewer injections than some other products, which is always attractive if you're not keen on needles. Profhilo works from the inside, spreading out through the deeper layers of the skin and encouraging bioremodelling of your collagen and elastin fibres. Along with lower levels of hyaluronic acid, older skin is also characterised by depletion of and abnormalities in collagen and elastin. In this way, Profhilo is designed to improve the levels and quality of the three biological factors that keep your skin looking fresh, plump and youthful. To find out more about Profhilo and to watch a procedure being performed, I went along to the CosmeSurge clinic @cosmesurgeuk where I talked with Dr Pam Benito @drpam.aesthetics about injectable moisturisers and joined her for the first of two rounds of treatment on her patient, Jenny. Watch the video and you’ll see how it went. 🔸 Video sponsored by Cosmesurge Ltd 🔸 Video filmed and edited by @cameron_hall96 #tweakoftheweek #profhilo #tweakments #injectablemoisturiser #bioremodelling
As we age, the skin loses vital moisture and over time, combined with the loss of substances like collagen and elastin, this can cause fine lines and deeper wrinkles can appear. Uneven skin tone can be a problem and this is due to prolonged sun exposure as well as other environmental and lifestyle factors. Bone and tissue loss in the facial areas leads to sagging cheeks, jowls and hollows in areas such as the temples and around the eye sockets.
This is when an injectable skin moisturiser such as Profhilo® can help.
What is Profhilo?
Profhilo® is an advanced hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable skin hydrating treatment which is administered only by a medically-trained professional such as Dr Pamela Bonito, here at CosmeSurge, London.
The treatment is given in 2 sessions and is injected into 5 key areas of the face. As the product disperses, it produces an overall improvement of the skin in the entire facial area, stimulating 4 different types of collagen and elastin and uses 2 types of HA.
Profhilo® is commonly referred to as ‘liquid skincare’ due to the intense hydration that it offers the skin. It’s not a dermal filler and does not increase volume in areas that require re-structuring, but offers the skin a chance to replenish and heal itself on a cellular level. However, Profhilo® can be used in conjunction with traditional dermal fillers and wrinkle-relaxing injections such as Botox.
Profhilo® can be used in areas of the face and body such as the full face, neck, hands, and décolletage.

Your Profhilo treatment at Cosmesurge
Before any treatment can commence here at CosmeSurge, Dr Pamela will invite you to a no-obligation, preliminary consultation, to discuss your skin concerns, desires for results and the options that might be open to you. If it is skin bio-remodelling you are looking for and to achieve brighter, smoother, softer and plumper complexion, then Profhilo® could be the perfect solution.
Once Dr Pamela is satisfied that you are a good candidate for Profhilo® and that you have no medical issues that may be a contraindication to the treatment, she can then commence the treatment programme.
The treatment itself will take around 30 minutes and should not be painful. A topical anaesthetic will be applied before Dr Pamela begins the series of injections required for the best results possible.
Results can start to be seen around 28 days following the first treatment. It will be at this stage that you will have another treatment, to offer that serious skin improvement that you’re seeking. Expect results to last up to 12 months. For more advanced ageing concerns, a follow-up treatment around 6 months after the initial session may be advised.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects and guards us, regulates heat and weathers many storms in our lifetime. It’s no wonder therefore that as we age, we may need to give it a helping hand to stay youthful-looking and glowing. Profhilo® can dramatically restore the skin and turn back the clock, where creams, lotions and serums simply won’t cut it and Dr Pamela is a huge advocate of this treatment, simply because it works!
