Loose skin has no place in your life – and you don’t need to turn to surgery to tighten up. Profound is a radiofrequency treatment that both tightens the skin and also improves skin volume and elasticity. It is particularly effective on the area around the mouth, improving jowls and wrinkles.
Profound stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. Studies have shown that the Profound procedure produces one-third the effect of a surgical face-lift. Profound delivers lifted, firmer and smoother skin, with an improvement to wrinkles and jowls, as well as tighter skin on the upper neck.
The Profound Treatment Experience
Profound’s technology utilizes a handpiece with a disposable cartridge containing an array of radiofrequency energy needles. Your provider places the handpiece on predetermined treatment areas. The needles penetrate the skin and release heat for a specific amount of time at a precise temperature and depth. This energy then stimulates the body to produce new collagen and elastin.
Profound is usually a single treatment. When you arrive at the office, you will receive local anesthetic in the treatment areas. You should not experience any pain during the treatment or post-treatment. Patient recovery typically includes 3-7 days of swelling and redness as well as bruising, as well as up to a week of minor shedding of the skin.
After treatment, you will see an improvement over several months. Results are usually visible in as little as 2 weeks, and maximum treatment effects are seen over a 6-9 month period.
Am I a Candidate for Profound?
Good candidates for the Profound procedure have sagging skin, especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, or upper lip wrinkles. Profound is appropriate for all skin types as radio frequency energy treats all skin tones in the same way.
