As we age, our skin stops producing Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic acid. Diet, smoking, the aging process, illness, weight fluctuations, sun damage, and hormonal changes can all decrease these three fundamental elements. Profound can essentially undo all that damage!
Profound is the only skin tightening treatment on the market with a 100% response rate after only 1 treatment! This treatment will improve your skin's appearance with a lift of your lower face and neck or even address your cellulite without having to undergo painful, invasive treatments. Profound uses heat and radio frequency (RF) to cause micro-channels in the deep layers of your skin which prompts your body to produce new Collagen, Elastin AND Hyaluronic Acid! We are excited to bring our patients a non-surgical treatment that has proven and dramatic jaw-dropping results!
Profound is a unique device used for improving skin laxity and increasing dermal volume on the lower half of the face, jawline, submental area, upper neck and even your thighs and abdomen! This minimally invasive treatment utilizes concentrated RF waves to deliver energy through five pairs of micro-channel electrodes, introduced deep within the dermis, tiny, fractional thermal injuries are created within the skin. This prompts the body's natural healing process. The dermis' vigorous wound healing response means that levels of Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic acid increase exponentially. As skin heals, the dermal healing process will plump tissue, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and lift skin. In as few as 10 weeks, patients will see a significant improvement in sagging and wrinkled skin. A single Profound treatment has been proven to improve skin laxity in 100% of patients in only a few months with results lasting up to 4 years.
Profound is a mildly invasive, RF microchanneling treatment. Using five pairs of tiny needles, each fitted with a small electrode, concentrated radiofrequency energy is directed deep into the dermis, without causing any damage to the top layer of skin. Healing is therefore rapid and the skin appearance returns to normal in a few days.
Prior to treatment, a personalized Profound consultation will be scheduled to determine if the treatment is right for your individual needs, and to establish the target area. Next, your Nurse Practitioner will administer Lidocaine to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. The provider will then glide the Profound hand piece across the predetermined area, gently delivering custom-tailored pulses of energy, each lasting approximately 3 seconds.
Profound's cutting-edge technology means that one treatment can offer dramatic results. There is little downtime needed after a Profound session. Most patients are back to their normal routine, including work, school, and exercise, within 24 hours, but some swelling and bruising may last up to a week.
