Profound is a revolutionary new energy-based facial treatment designed to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. Without surgery, fillers or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin.
Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in the body - like your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs and many other tissues elastic so that they can snap back into shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin works together in your skin with collagen. Elastin provides elasticity and collagen (another protein in your skin) provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm.
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down and become less elastic and lose its spring… think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil. Elastin is normally no longer made after puberty and aging begins. In order to build new elastin, you need to cause a certain amount of damage to the skin by heating for example, so that the elastin starts to break down. Then a healing process can begin to build new elastin.
Profound is clinically proved* to build elastin. By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time, Profound leads to the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin.
Profound can be used to treat the following:
Both Dermal & Adipose Tissues
Profound Lift - to treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
Profound Contour - to define the jawline (double chins)
Profound Smooth - to treat the folds between the nose and cheek
Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in a physician’s office, usually in 45 minutes or less. Your doctor will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers energy to the deeper skin layers exactly where treatment is most beneficial.
Profound has an excellent safety record. You will only need 1 treatment to rejuvenate your skin with Profound. There is no need to schedule multiple office visits in order to achieve optimum results.
The Profound treatment promotes natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy skin over time. Most patients report seeing improvement 6-8 weeks post treatment. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results will not be observed for at least 3-6 months after treatment. However, there are a number of factors that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age, and how you care for your skin after the treatment.
After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities the next day. Any minor redness, swelling or bruising resulting from treatment can typically be covered with makeup within 24-48 hours.
Ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging. In clinical studies, Profound treatments had a 100% response rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity.
Uniquely, Profound® is clinically proven to create 3 vital skin elements: elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. These major skin building blocks work to create dermal volume.
