PROFHILO & TOSKANI TKN HA3 SKIN BOOSTER INJECTIONS
What is Profhilo & TOSKANI TKN HA3?
Profhilo and TKN are injectable treatments for anti ageing. It works really well on skin that is loosing firmness, and elasticity. It can be used on a number of different areas, not just the face: Arms, neck, hands, knees, décolleté. Infact on any part of the body that is requiring noticeable improvement in tone, texture firmness and hydration.
Profhilo is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), HA is best known for its properties in lip and dermal fillers, where it is used to give volume, contour or hydration. Profhilo works in a different way to normal fillers, and due to its structure it allows it to travel within the skin, to boost hydration, smooth and remodel the skin giving a more youthful appearance. It is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue. Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatment’s currently on offer.
TOSKANI TKN HA3 is the latest addition to our portfolio of products with hyaluronic acid. This biorevitaliser is an injectable syringe gel composed of 9mg/ml of non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid. It has the highest molecular weight in the market (3.000 kDa), that is, the most similar to the skin physiological one. Having a larger molecule, its degradation is slower and its effects last longer providing a filler effect. TKN HA 3 can be used on the face, neck and décolletage to prevent and correct signs of ageing.
How does it work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced in our body, found in skin, joints and other connective tissue. Its role is to retain moisture in the body and aid collagen production. It can hold 1000 times its weight in water which makes it ideal for binding moisture in the skin. With age hyaluronic acid production slows and the skin looks duller and dehydrated, with fine lines and wrinkles forming.
As a stabilised product Profhilo last in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA. It contains one of the highest concentrations of stabilised hyaluronic acid on the market.
Because it is thermally bonded and not chemically bonded it acts as a hydrator not a filler. It is injected just underneath the surface of the skin where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration.
Over the next four weeks phase two kicks in as it goes to work boosting elastin and collagen production. This effectively remodels the skin and giving it a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.
Due to its gel like consistency Profhilo distributes smoothly and evenly without the formation of any lumps – a potential risk with traditional fillers. This means it can be used on areas which are difficult to treat with traditional fillers, such as the neck and forehead.

Will I have lumps where Profilo is injected?
And how long will they last? Right after the session you might have a “lump” of Hyaluron at each of the injection sites. These usually disappear within 4-6 hours, but can in some cases last up to 24 hours (unusual). Not everyone has these, and you can always get in touch if you are concerned.
How much downtime is there after treatments?
The downtime is really is minimal. When injected using the five-point technique on each side of the face, each insertion is immediately noticeable. These do start to disappear right away. You should avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, and steam/sauna - extremes of temperature for a few days.
How quickly will I notice results?
Patients can expect increased firmness, elasticity and an overall improved quality of the skin within a couple of weeks of the treatment, this will improve with the second session.
Will people be able to tell I’ve had something done? Will it look fake?
Most of the time people won’t be able to tell - unless you tell them. They may notice that your skin is looking great though!
Will there be any side effects?
Usually no, hyaluronic acid is made by the body - and is usually tolerated very well. You may have some bruising and/or mild swelling at the injection sites, but these are rare.
Is the treatment safe?
Profhilo, Julapro and hyaluronic acid treatments have a great safety record. That’s because it is made from ultrapure, natural Hyaluronic Acid and is stabilised without the addition of chemical cross-linking agents. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions. The product has also won numerous awards.
How will I know if the side effects are normal, or something serious has happened?
After your treatment, the common effects are mild redness, slight swelling and possible bruising.
The treatment area may feel tender to touch and all of these effects are normal, will subside in a few days, but may last up to a week. Each day everything should improve slightly and the area should look more normal and feel better.
It is very uncommon to have any serious side effects, however if you do experience any of the following, please call the clinic immediately, or if after hours, seek help from a GP or A&E:
swelling that is getting worse as time passes
increase in pain and getting more severe with time
skin feeling hot, redness increasing and becoming worse in time
