Profound is an energy-based minimally invasive treatment used to regenerate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Collagen and elastin provide the support and structure that the skin requires to be healthy, elastic, and plump. This revolutionary procedure tightens, lifts, contours, and smooths the skin—all without having to “go under the knife”. Profound delivers bipolar, non-ablative radiofrequency energy to the dermal layers of the skin through microneedles, creating tiny thermal injuries at a precise depth, temperature, and duration. These thermal injuries stimulate the production of collagen and elastin by the skin cells. While the full effects will be visible at 6 months post treatment, patients consistently report noticeable tightening and plumping of the skin 2 months after the procedure.
