What are the differences between Profhilo and Botox?

At a certain age, we all start to notice our skins change and consider ways in which we can hold on to our youthful appearance. You perhaps, after research have found that the fountain of youth is not within our mortal reach and start searching for solutions to rid those incredulous frown lines, crow’s feet, and fine lines around your eyes and mouth.

The first things that might come to mind when looking at minimally invasive treatments are Botox or Profhilo treatment. Making an informed decision about your beauty treatment is essential in meeting your expectations.

This article is set out with the intent to inform you about the above-mentioned treatment options.

How does Profhilo work?

Profhilo is injected just below the skin surface. It is a skin remodelling treatment with the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid. The special formulation revives skin that lacks volume and elasticity.

Profhilo is rather a hydrate than a filler treatment. Although it is possible for a difference to be noticed within 24 hours, the treatment takes effect over 3 - 5 days. Over a few weeks, collagen and elastin production is stimulated through these skin injections creating a secondary effect of skin tightening.

How does Botox work?

Botox treatment is an injectable drug made from botulinum toxin Type A. Botox is a toxin, but it can have benefits when used correctly in small doses. It is used for various health issues such as eyelid spasms, excessive sweating, some bladder disorders, and migraines. In the general population, it is known for reducing the appearance of skin wrinkles.

The substance targets the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signalling process that stimulates muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis.

What are the aesthetic results you can expect with either?

Profhilo makes the skin glow and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It is known to create smoother, tighter skin after a single course. It does not plump or add volume like fillers, allowing natural-looking results.

Known for correcting skin laxity it a wonderful tool to enhance your facial features. Profhilo essentially treats the source of ageing rather than the symptom, which is beneficial in the long haul.

Botox injections' cosmetic results can be subtle if it is not overused. Lines and wrinkles will soften and the person staring back in the mirror will look more like your youthful self. It does also give an appearance of a "frozen" look, that might not be everybody's cup of tea. Botox is also not effective in treating ageing signs in the lower face.

Are they safe?

Using a safe product, treatment, or substance on and in your body should be highly regarded. Here are some insights when considering possible side effects:


Yes, Profhilo is safe. The absence of chemical substances and additives significantly minimizes the risk of complications and side effects. It is 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid and completely metabolized by the body. This is a highly natural way of treating signs of ageing. No allergy tests are required prior to treatment and is FDA approved.


Because Botox is a drug that targets the nervous system, there is the chance that if you administer Botox for years and years, the muscle will get weaker and flatter, the skin can also appear thinner and looser. As your muscles become weaker, they can start recruiting surrounding muscles with facial expression.

Although Botox is a toxin, when used in small doses for cosmetic procedures it is considered safe.
