Profound is a cutting edge facial treatment designed to keeping you looking younger by improving your skin’s elasticity and smoothness. Patients that are living with the following signs of aging are great candidates for Profound:
- Double chins or loose skin under the neck
- Marionette lines
- Facial wrinkles
- Mild to moderate skin laxity to the jawline
How Does Profound Work?
The innovation in Profound’s technology relies on stimulating the building blocks of healthy skin: elastin and collagen.
In our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down, reducing the ability for our skin to return back to its original shape after being stretched or contracted. Collagen also tends to start breaking down around the same time. As this process happens, our skin also loses its rigidity.
Profound works to stimulate new collagen and elastin by carefully heating the skin to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time. This clinically-proven process leads to the creation of new collagen and elastin to repair aging skin.
What Should I Expect From The Procedure?
Profound is a single treatment that can take as little as 45 minutes. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will use the Profound technology to release heat by way of radiofrequency into the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastic tissue. Before the procedure, your surgeon will provide a local anesthetic to manage your comfort levels.
Results can be visible in about two weeks, but maximum effects are more commonly seen over a six to nine month period.
After the procedure, you should expect at least five to seven days of swelling and redness and bruising. In addition, there may be the appearance of tiny, dotted marks on the treated area. You may also experience minor shedding of the skin for up to a week.
