WHAT IS PROFOUND?
Known as the non-surgical face-lift, Profound is a revolutionary energy-based, skin-needling treatment. It’s designed to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. It’s a great treatment for improving aging skin and can also help to reduce dreaded cellulite.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Profound uniquely combines micro-needling and radiofrequency technologies for an advanced skin tightening and rejuvenating effect. It works by penetrating the skin at a precise depth with tiny needles, before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy (heat). This stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a tighter, smoother, more lifted appearance.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Profound is clinically proven to create younger looking skin. Studies by Syneron Candela (the manufacturers of Profound) show a 100% response rate for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a 95% response rate for improving skin sagging.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are typically visible six to eight weeks post-treatment once your skins moved through its natural healing process. Optimum results appear at three to six months.
DOES IT HURT?
The treatment involves our doctor injecting a local anesthetic into the treatment area before using the Profound device. As the skin is numbed, most clients hardly experience any pain during or immediately after the treatment. You will likely experience some discomfort in the days following as your skin starts its healing process, however we will work with you to manage this and make sure you remain as comfortable as possible.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Yes, you can expect about five to seven days of downtime as your skin undergoes the healing process. This is significantly reduced when compared to a surgical facelift which has a long and painful recovery period of up to one month.
WHO CAN HAVE THE TREATMENT?
Profound is suitable for anyone who’s noticing significant signs of aging such as sagging and drooping skin, jowls and pronounced wrinkles. It can also be used to treat cellulite.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Profound produces dramatic results in a single treatment. For optimum results, it is recommended that you receive a second Profound treatment at six months with annual maintenance treatments thereafter.
