Non-Surgical Profound RF
Profound is a minimally invasive treatment designed to help people who have sagging skin and loss of volume around the mouth, cheeks, and neck. A handheld device with tiny needles is placed on your skin, using radio-frequency technology, heat is released at a precise temperature and depth.
Many people notice signs of aging when skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag around the face, jawline and neck. Intrinsic aging, also known as the natural aging process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Lifestyle, diet, personal habits and sun exposure often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Most premature aging is caused by sun exposure (photo-aging). Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.

HOW DOES PROFOUND WORK?
Profound works by helping the skin to build collagen and elastin. Profound heats the skin to an exact temperature and depth for an exact amount of time, delivering precise energy to the deeper skin layers, where it is most beneficial. No surgery, no injectables; just your body’s own collagen and elastin to help you turn back the clock on aging.
What is the Profound procedure like?
Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in a physician’s office, usually in 60 minutes or less. Local anesthetic injected into the area that will be treated for total comfort during your treatment. The system delivers precise temperatures to the deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy being delivered is most beneficial.
Is the Profound procedure safe?
Profound has an excellent safety record. As with any procedure, you should make sure your physician is experienced in performing Profound treatments.
How many Profound treatments will I need?
You will only need 1 treatment to rejuvenate your skin with Profound. There is no need to schedule multiple office visits in order to achieve optimum results.
How long will the results last?
The Profound treatment promotes natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy skin over time. Most patients report seeing improvement 6-8 weeks post treatment. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results will not be observed for at leastn 3-6 months after treatment. However, there are a number of factors that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age, and how you care for your skin after the treatment.
What can I expect after my procedure?
After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities the next day. Any minor redness, swelling or bruising resulting from treatment can typically be covered with makeup within 24-48 hours.
Is the Profound treatment right for me?
Ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging. In clinical studies, Profound treatments had a 100% response rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity.
