Profound® skin tightening is a non-surgical facelift that utilizes radiofrequency energy to firm loose skin while creating more volume and elastic tissue.
Profound® stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Profound® technology uses a handpiece with a throwaway cartridge. This cartridge contains radiofrequency energy needles. When the needles penetrate the skin, they release heat at a precise depth and temperature to encourage new collagen and elastic tissue formation.
The Profound® procedure offers many benefits compared to a surgical facelift, such as:
Ideal candidates for the Profound® procedure include patients with sagging skin, wrinkles, or loss of volume around the mouth, jowls, or cheeks. Radiofrequency energy is safe for all skin types. However, if you are pregnant, have a history of skin healing issues, or have a pacemaker, the Profound® procedure is not recommended.
Profound® skin tightening is usually performed with one treatment in our office. Local anesthesia is administered to the problem areas you want to be treated. Once the treatment area is numb, the Profound® handpiece will be applied to the skin, and the microneedles will be deployed.
Once the needles are in place, the electrodes are activated. This process will be repeated over the entire area until everything has been treated. The procedure takes between 45 to 90 minutes, and you can drive home or continue your daily activities afterward. Results are typically visible within a few weeks and should continue to improve for another 10 to 12 months.
You can expect three to seven days of swelling, redness, possible bruising after your Profound treatment. You may see tiny dots on your skin from the application device and experience some skin shedding. However, many patients return to their daily activities within 24 hours. Lauren will customize your treatment plan during your consultation.
Profound is designed to awaken your body’s natural healing process by stimulating collagen production and awakening the hyaluronic acid and elastin elements to create long-lasting volume, increased firmness, and younger, more rejuvenated skin. Clinical studies show Profound is 100% effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and 94% effective in improving the appearance of cellulite.
