Profound Skin Tightening
Do you have aging skin or wrinkles you would love to see disappear? Or, maybe you’re feeling uncomfortable about an area of cellulite? A dramatic new energy-based treatment, known as Profound, can induce lifted, smoothed, contoured skin without having surgery. Profound considerably improves aging skin so you can look years younger.

How Profound Works
The Profound procedure uses a radio frequency device to help rejuvenate the skin at deeper levels. This awakens the body’s natural healing process. The Profound device targets the production of three naturally-occurring skin components; collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These three elements create volume and firmness to the skin. Starting around our mid-20’s, elastin starts to break down and the skin begins to sag and wrinkle.
As we age, skin loses its elasticity. 3 key reasons facial wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite increases:
Collagen Decreases Yearly
Elastin production stops
Hyaluronic Acid Diminishes
Profound encourages natural reproduction of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin rejuvenate the skin and build healthy, new tissue. This procedure adds volume to the cheeks, and tightens the skin of the neck and jowls. A more youthful look is immediately apparent. When tackling cellulite, the same components are reproduced naturally and produces a smoother skin surface. The dimples we see when cellulite is present will be noticeably improved.

Profound Q & A
There is minimal downtime associated with the Profound Procedure; patients can typically return to their normal routines immediately after their procedure. Some swelling and bruising may occur after the treatment. Some patients may experience slight tenderness at the injection site.
Total treatment time is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the treatment area.
Patients can expect to see final results about six months after their initial Profound procedure. However, skin laxity consistently improves throughout these months, meaning patients will see steady and consistent results.
The Profound Procedure is surprisingly tolerable. The first 15 minutes of the treatment are spent injecting the skin to be treated with lidocaine—numbing medicine. Once the facial and neck skin are numb, the treatment is more easily tolerated. The numbing can last for a few hours after the procedure. If patients are feeling any discomfort then, they are encouraged to use Tylenol or Advil products.
Most patients will only need one Profound treatment; however, your medical provider can work with you to determine how many Profound procedures you’ll need to see ideal results.
The Profound procedure is right for patients who may have issues with skin laxity, including sagging skin around the jawline. The Profound procedure can also address wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
