What does the Profound system involve?
The Profound system uses RF Microneedling to deliver RF energy at regulated temperatures to precise points under the skin, promoting the production of collagen and tightening up the face and neck after just 1 treatment. The aging process, both genetic and environmental (such as that from the sun) decrease the thickness of your collagen, decreases the amount of hyaluronic acid and weakens the tightening power of your elastin.
Clinical research has proven that causing controlled damage to the under layers of the skin promotes the growth of collagen. It can be done with heat, and possibly sub-zero cold. Profound uses heat. When the under layers of the skin are heated to 65°C, neocollagenesis begins (new collagen is produced).
How can Profound be used?
Common treatment areas for the Profound non-surgical face lifting are the jaw, jowl, cheeks and neck. The Profound can also be used on the body as well as the face. In particular, Profound can be used to dramatically reduce cellulite, in just one treatment.

What is a non-surgical face lift and how does it compare to a traditional surgical face lift?
The term “non-surgical face lift” has become very popular phrase in the aesthetics and cosmetic area. A traditional facelift is composed of surgical techniques to trim off excess skin and reposition tissues and muscles of the face. In some cases it is combined with fat transfers or implants to replace facial volume lost during the aging process. Non-surgical face lifts have become popular because many people do not want to experience the downtime and potential complications of a surgical procedure.
Does Profound treatment hurt?
There is very little discomfort with the Profound treatment. The numbing process typically reduces any sensation to slight tugging or pulling of the skin.
