Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a candidate for the Profound treatment?
Profound is a completely customizable and minimally invasive treatment suitable for women and men who wish to target the key signs of aging and cellulite on the body. The ideal patient is someone who suffers from loss of vital skin elements due to genetics, aging, and other environmental factors resulting in overall volume loss, wrinkles, and decreased skin elasticity. This is a procedure for patients who are looking to increase volume in the treatment area without surgery.
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound?
The Profound procedure can help treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck as well as address the “double chin” to help define the jawline. The Profound treatment can also help treat nasolabial folds also known as smile lines. These lines are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Profound can also be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What is the Profound treatment like?
The profound treatment takes 45 minutes to an hour. We begin treatment by applying a local anesthetic to help make the procedure more comfortable for you. The Profound system then delivers energy to the deeper layers of your skin (this is where the concentration of collagen is the highest) to precisely deliver fractionated injuries without thermal impact. These thermal injuries stimulate a wound healing response which naturally creates new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation. This dermal remodeling results in visible skin improvement over the next few months following your treatment.
What is elastin and why is important?
Elastin is a protein that shrinks and expands like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin and other tissues elastic so that they can snap back into shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin works together with collagen, another protein in your skin. Elastin provides elasticity while collagen provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm. Elastin begins to break down in our mid 20’s causing our skin to begin losing its elasticity.
When will I see results?
The Profound treatment promotes natural production of new elastin and collagen as well as other components of healthy skin over time. Most patients report seeing improvement 6-8 weeks after their treatment. However, it may take at least 3-6 months to see optimal results since elastin and collagen require time to fully develop. There are a number of factors that influence how soon you see results as well as how long the results last. These factors include: your health, age, and how you take care of your skin after the treatment.
