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. All without surgery, fillers or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.
What is the effect of a lack of elastin and collagen as we age?
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down, becoming less elastin and losing its spring. think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil.
What is the best method to build elastin and collagen?
Profound is a clinically-proven* treatment that builds elastin and collagen. 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.
What is the Profound procedure like?
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 precise temperatures to the deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy being delivered is most beneficial.
Is a Profound treatment right for me?
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.
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound?
- Profound Lift to treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
- Profound Contour to define the jawline (double chins)
- Profound Smooth to treat other areas of loose skin.
How Does Profound RF Work?
As we get older, our skin begins to lose some of its vitality, becoming more lose, wrinkled, and less full than it once was. This is because the skin has begun to break down faster than it can naturally rejuvenate. Profound Lift uses micro-needle technology to transmit radio frequency energy, at exactly the right depth and temperature to stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
Collagen is a protein that naturally occurs in the body. In fact, nearly a third of all the protein in your body is collagen. It is responsible for maintaining the healthy structure of your bones, connective tissue, and skin. It is a very strong protein, unfortunately it is vulnerable to several things, such as aging, smoking, and the sun’s harsh UV rays.
Collagen sets up a framework for new cells to attach and grow. Without this framework, the skin becomes weak, and unable to hold its once healthy form. By stimulating the growth of your body’s own collagen, Profound is able to bring back that essential framework your skin needs to be healthy.
Elastin is also a protein found naturally in you body. However, it is a little different from collagen. Whereas collagen provides the strong, rigid framework for healthy cells to grow, elastin is a flexible protein, which, as the name suggests, is very elastic. The properties of elastin, allow it to flex, and quickly return to its normal state. consider it like a chain of proteins that form a rubber band for the tissues in your body. Both collagen, and elastin combine to make your body’s tissues strong, yet flexible.
As we age, time takes its toll on elastin, the sun breaks it down, and life’s stresses wear it down even further. This results in sagging, and wrinkles. Thankfully, the same RF process that stimulates collagen, also stimulates elastin. When Profound is used to boost elastin production, the skin is able to regain its lost plasticity. This results in lifting, and tightening of the skin, which reduces wrinkles, and sagging.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is usually found naturally, and abundantly within the skin. HA helps keep the skin looking bright and healthy. It keeps collagen present in the skin, and aids elastin in its job of keeping the skin flexible.
The special thing about HA, is its ability to retain water, and thus provide the skin cells, collagen, and elastin with the vital moisture they need, to remain healthy. By stimulating HA production, Profound gives the skin a lasting boost in health. The skin becomes healthier, more elastic, brighter, and enables the skin to retain the moisture it needs to remain healthy.
