What is Profound? Profound is a revolutionary energy-based facial treatment designed to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature and for an exact amount of time, Profound treatments effectively and dramatically create dermal volume as well as tighten and tone lax skin. Profound dramatically improves aging skin so you can look years younger without surgery.
What is the Profound procedure like? Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in our office. We will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The Profound system delivers precise temperatures to the deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy being delivered is most beneficial.
Is a 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.
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound? The most common areas treated with Profound are mid face, lower face and neck. Treatments will address sagging jowls, deepening nasolabial folds (the folds between the nose and cheeks), undefined jawline, double chin and loose skin on the neck.
How many Profound treatments will I need? Typically only 1 Profound treatment is needed to rejuvenate the skin and 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 improvements 6-8 weeks post treatment. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results may not be observed for at least 3-6 months after treatment. 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. We will educate you on how to maintain prolonged results.
