What is Profound?
Profound is a non-surgical radio-frequency energy combined with microneedling to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promote skin tightening. It stimulates and promotes new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in order to create a smoother, tighter look to the face and neck. It can also be used in other areas of the body for cellulite reduction.
How does Profound work?
It works by stimulating and creating new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It uses radiofrequency along with microneedling techniques to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin resulting in skin tightening, firming, and cellulite reduction. Profound uses natural healing processes of the skin to promote revitalization and overall improvement of skin texture and appearance.
Benefits of Profound RF Microneedling
This treatment is a one time treatment! It is non-surgical and can be easily performed in the office under local anesthesia alone. This sets it apart from its competition, and its results are superior.
Profound Treatment Procedure
This treatment is a safe and effective treatment that is performed in an office based setting under local anesthesia. The treatment itself is more comfortable after the local anesthesia is injected and is relatively quick.
Candidates for Profound
Patients who have excessive skin laxity, increased wrinkling, aging skin, or cellulite are all great candidates for this procedure.
What areas can be treated with Profound?
This treatment is great for the face and neck. It can also be used on the buttocks and thigh area for cellulite reduction.
What results can I expect after Profound?
The results are outstanding with this one time treatment. If surgery is not an option, this is a great alternative option for those looking to improve the appearance of the skin.
Recovery After Profound RF Microneedling Treatment
Recovery is variable and unique to each individual. Most often, there is some redness immediately after the procedure that can persist for a few days. The treatment, like any, is associated with bruising and swelling that continue to resolve over the first 1-2 weeks. There is an immediate response, but full effects are not appreciated for about six months after treatment.
What are the Alternatives to Profound treatment?
Surgical alternatives are always an option. We also have more minor non-surgical options including microneedling alone or laser treatments that can resurface and improve texture. However, this treatment is more powerful for tightening.
