Profound dramatically rejuvenates the skin for a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Profound uses radiofrequency to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production, delivered into the dermis through a microarray of needles. The result is skin that is tighter with fewer wrinkles and more volume in the cheeks. Results of a Profound treatment are dramatic, particularly when combined with CO2RE laser resurfacing.
What Is Profound?
Profound is a device which uses fractional radiofrequency to improve skin laxity. The energy will be delivered directly to the dermis by an array of small needles inserted into the skin. This delivers the energy to the most effective area of the skin to repair loose skin. Radiofrequency at the correct level and energy in the skin can help your skin produce elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. All of these components are what keep your skin full and young-looking. Essentially, Profound is a minimally invasive lift for your face or neck. During clinical trials, all patients noticed a difference in their skin after one treatment of Profound.
What to Expect
Your treatment will begin with an injection of anesthetic to the treatment area. You may be given an oral medication to help you relax during the treatment. If medication is given, you should arrange to have a ride home from the treatment. During your treatment, needles will deliver energy deep into your skin. After your treatment, a thick moisturizer will be applied to the treatment area. You will experience some swelling and redness, which should subside after a few days. We recommend allowing for a full week of downtime.
