We have nearly exhausted surface applied technologies, so Profound takes us to the next level...we deliver the RF energy directly to the reticular dermis, which is the target. It was the first device to achieve real-time feedback of target tissue temperature and delivered energy, so we can control how much energy we deliver to achieve and maintain a precise therapeutic temperature level at the location where the energy is supposed to go. This device is by far the most consistently effective for minimally invasive skin laxity reduction in a single treatment.

Profound is our preferred and most effective treatment for skin tightening and lifting of the face and neck. An additional benefit of the Profound treatment is the overall improvement in skin quality, accomplishing the removal of deeper lines seen in patients with advanced dermatoheliosis and a noticeable greater elasticity of the skin. Approximately, 50 to 60 treatments are performed per year. I have never had a single patient unhappy or with concerns regarding the results of treatment.

Profound causes very precise dermal injuries that arouse an anabolic wound healing response which stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin in a way that we’ve not seen before.
We are consistently able to create younger, more elastic skin, in addition to improving volume. Even patients in their thirties could periodically turn back the clock on early laxity and loss of volume.

We all know that the key to maximizing results is the ability to maximize the delivery of adequate treatment energy to achieve the desired effect.
It’s easy for us to tell how much energy we’re using, but how do we know if it is being delivered to the target, and if it is enough to help us achieve the desired result? Profound is able to answer these questions, so users can rely on more than reasonable expectations.

The procedure was very good as compared to some of the other procedures that I have had and it was relatively painless. Following the procedure, I now see no jowls whatsoever. I see a softening of what I call “tiger stripes” and a lessening of the folds around my mouth. It’s one of the best procedures I have ever done.
My skin is definitely tighter. I had a real laxity problem and I had been through all kinds of treatments. I was so concerned about it, that I had considered having a facelift, but this procedure completely obviated that need.
