What are Skin boosters?

Discover the secret of long-lasting skin hydration
Too much sun, stress, unhealthy nutrition, environmental pollution; all these factors affect your skin. Your skin is then less able to retain the moisture so necessary for smooth, supple and radiant skin. If you suffer from dry skin, dull skin, or unhealthy skin, then you’ve come to the right place!
Skincare from the outside can help, but only moisturizes temporarily and does not penetrate in depth. Skin boosters with hyaluronic acid moisturize your skin from the inside for a long lasting effect. This treatment is suitable for the skin of your face, décolletage and hands.

Skin boosters such as Profhilo are the perfect treatment suitable for patients suffering from poor skin texture, dehydration and uneven skin tone. This potent blend combines highly effective ingredients such as amino acids, anti oxidants and hyaluronic acids to plump, and restore the youthfulness to the skin – giving you a radiant appearance. Skin boosters like Profhilo do not ‘fill’ like a traditional filler, that adds volume or changes facial shape and contours.

Areas that can be treated with skin boosters like Profhilo include the face and also part of the body like the neck, hands and decollete.

Profhilo is the skin booster brand we use, being an anti-aging treatment with a large amount of pure hyaluronic acid without chemical additives. The effect of Profhilo is due to the fact that the production of collagen (firmness) and elastin (elasticity) is stimulated. The skin becomes firm and healthy again in the different skin layers.

A key benefit is that with Profhilo you can rejuvenate the skin without adding volume to your face. The skin is actually restored, skin sagging is addressed and this with a 100% natural treatment of hyaluronic acid.

Who is the treatment suitable for?

Profhilo is suitable for anyone who wants to give their skin an extra boost of hydration. Do you suffer from dry, anemic-looking, or unhealthy skin? Then Profhilo is the solution! The result is very natural, firming the skin and giving it a beautiful glow.

Skincare from outside can help, but it hydrates temporarily and does not penetrate deeply. A skin booster treatment with hyaluronic acid, such as Profhilo, hydrates the skin from within for a long-lasting effect. This treatment with Profhilo is suitable for the skin on your face, neck, décolleté and hands.

Hydration without pain - How does the treatment work?

Our experienced expert uses micro-injections with Profhilo to moisturize your skin in a painless way. The micro reserves with stabilized hyaluronic acid are built up in the middle and lower layer of the skin, providing intensive hydration from within, long-lasting improvement in skin quality and a fresh appearance.

This treatment uses the BAP technique, which means injections in 10 anatomically sophisticated areas that ensure optimal results. Profhilo spreads very well, so only a few injections are needed to optimally treat an entire face (or neck, décolleté, other areas). The treatment is quick, and the risk of side effects is small due to the natural material.

What happens during a Profhilo treatment?

The micro injections are made by an experienced physician who is trained for this purpose. You can choose from Skin boosters with a light anesthetic in the product. You can also ask the physician to locally anaesthetize the area to be treated to make the treatment even more comfortable. Essential Aesthetics works with the invisible needle to minimize injection pain. Our patients are delighted with this.
There are different injection techniques, which means your treatment can be tailored exactly to your wishes. Each treatment session with Profhilo takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

About hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and has a high water-binding capacity. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules, which ensures that the skin remains hydrated.

Profhilo is one of the most new and innovative skin improvement methods. It consists of 100% pure hyaluronic acid and is therefore the purest and most natural injectable of the moment. It ensures that the skin regains elastin and hydration, reduces wrinkles and reduces pores.

Stabilized hyaluronic acid is a soft, gel-like substance that absorbs water and deeply hydrates the skin of the treated area, making it firmer, more elastic and smoother. This becomes visible on the outside as the skin gains a beautiful, healthy glow.

Skin boosters for face, neck, cleavage and hands

Skin boosters like Profhilo are not only there for your face, but also for the neck, the cleavage and the hands. You can extend the treatment with Skin boosters with other beauty treatments, such as a peeling or a treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers. Profhilo is also suitable for coarse acne scars and can help the skin to become smoother than ever.

After the treatment

After the treatment, most patients suffer from slight redness, swelling or some bruising in the treated area for a few days. In many cases, the swelling disappears within a few days. Good cooling can help prevent or reduce swelling in the treated area. Makeup should only be used again after about 24 hours. To see the results, you can ask our medical consultant to show you examples of a Profhilo treatment before and after, or see the before and after pictures below.

When can I expect results?

2 to 3 treatments are needed at one-month intervals, depending on the degree of skin aging. Because this treatment puts the skin itself to work, you will not see immediate results. However, you can often already see that the skin is better hydrated. From 6-8 weeks after the first treatment, the positive effect is increasingly clear, this is because the production of collagen and elastin takes time.

Effectiveness & Safety

How long does the effect of the treatment last?

How long these improvements remain visible depends on the condition of the skin. It is recommended to undergo a separate treatment once or twice a year to maintain the results. After all: The aging process continues.


Hyaluronic acid has been used for cosmetic and medical purposes for many years and its effectiveness and safety have been proven in extensive clinical trials.

  • Hyaluronic acid is a natural product that also occurs in normal skin and it is completely biodegradable. The risk of allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid is very small because it does not contain animal proteins. There is always a small risk of more than average swelling and bruising, but these often disappear within one to two weeks.
  • Usually, the treated skin is slightly swollen and red for a few hours after the treatment. These reactions are always mild and disappear spontaneously. To keep swelling to a minimum, the treated area can be cooled with cold compresses. To further reduce swelling, we recommend that you do not bend over too much during the first 2 days after the injections and keep your head upright as much as possible. During the night, you may simply rest your head on a pillow.
  • A bruise (bruising) can sometimes appear in thin skin for a few days, which you can camouflage with make-up.
  • If this does not help enough or if the pain increases, it is best to contact the clinic.
  • Profhilo has been on the market since 2015, and has since been widely used worldwide, with no side effects other than those mentioned above reported so far. This is due to the fact that it is a very pure form of hyaluronic acid!


For whom is this treatment suitable?

For anyone starting from around 30 years of age who wants to combat sagging skin. It is also for men and women who want a natural skin-rejuvenating effect and are not (yet) comfortable with the step to get an actual filler.  However, the treatment can also be combined well with a filler or botuline toxine treatment, or as an addition to another treatment.

Can Skin boosters be combined with other aesthetic skin treatments?

Skin boosters like Profhilo can be used separately or in combination with other anti-ageing treatments. We also recommend these treatments after procedures such as face lifts.

How many treatment sessions are needed?

In most cases, multiple treatments are needed to hydrate the skin over a long period of time. The Skin booster treatment plan consists of three treatments that are carried out two to four weeks in a row, after which there is a maintenance treatment. Ask your cosmetic doctor about the best treatment plan for you.

What makes Skin boosters different from other treatments?

Traditional skincare products applied to the skin are easy to wash off, whereas Skin boosters like Profhilo go deep within the skin and retain moisture for long-lasting hydration, making the skin more elastic, firmer and smoother again.

Fillers help restore volume to specific areas of the face (e.g. filling in wrinkles and lines or enlarging the lips). Skin boosters, on the other hand, improve hydration levels and skin quality, making the skin of the face, hands, neck, cleavage or lips more elastic, firmer and smoother, giving the skin a fresher appearance.

Mesotherapeutic products are injected into a more superficial layer of the skin, the results depend on the solution used. Skin boosters like Profhilo contain a unique form of stabilized hyaluronic acid, a molecule that has been proven to provide long-lasting hydration and radiance to the skin.
