How does Profound Work?
Profound uses a combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation on the face, jawline, chin, and other areas. The innovative Profound system includes an apparatus with a series of micro-needles that penetrate below the epidermis and into the dermis. At this point, RF energy is emitted, causing the skin to react by producing more fundamental proteins like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The depth and temperature of the treatment can be controlled to ensure the best possible results based on your unique characteristics. Over time, the skin in the treated area should appear smoother, more pliable, and younger-looking.
What are the benefits of Profound?
Some short-term benefits can include improved texture, less noticeable fine lines, and greater radiance. Profound can also be used on some patient to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. As more collagen and elastin are generated, the skin should lift, become more contoured, and show fewer wrinkles and uneven texture. Most patients experience these effects within the first few months and they will continue to notice improvement for several months.
Does it hurt?
As the micro-needles are very small, most patients experience little to no pain, and this procedure is minimally invasive with no traditional “injections” as you would expect from dermal fillers or neuromodulators. To further enhance your treatment, we will apply a numbing cream prior to the procedure and can use additional anesthetic as needed. Your care and comfort are our highest priorities, and we will work with you to provide an exceptional experience.
What is recovery like?
Profound therapy is appropriate for virtually all skin types and only one treatment session is typically necessary to begin to see results. Redness, swelling, and bruising after the procedure is to be expected, and these effects should fade within one to two weeks. Makeup can be applied to cover these symptoms, if desired.
