Named by Yahoo! Beauty as one of the “Seven Biggest Beauty Breakthroughs of 2015,” the Profound system is the first device to stimulate the growth of all three essential skin components: elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It’s a minimally-invasive radio frequency system with patented Real Time Temperature Control that utilizes 5 pairs of micro-needle electrodes, and you only need one treatment.
It may sound complicated at first, but it’s not. As we age, our skin loses elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, which are all responsible for skin elasticity and volume. Profound triggers the production of these compounds naturally by creating tiny thermal injuries deep in the skin where collagen concentration is highest. Micro injuries stimulate would healing, and therefore new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation.
Why is this a breakthrough system?
Profound is the only system the incorporates temperature sensors embedded within the micro-needles and a realtime temperature feedback algorithm. Studies have shown that optimal results happen at 67°C. Only Profound’s temperature-based feedback algorithm can reach this temperature sweet spot.
What are the results?
- Smoothes facial wrinkles
- Restores facial volume
- Encourages growth of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, the building blocks of healthy skin
- Tightens and contours jowls and jawlines
This makes it a viable alternative for Las Vegas patients hesitant to undergo facial plastic surgery. This is a single-treatment procedure with a 100% response rate (based on results of a clinical study in 20 patients, measuring improvement in Fitzpatrick Wrinkle Scale at 3 months compared to baseline based on independent review of photographs).
What does recovery look like?
The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. You’ll have a local anesthetic to number the area being treated. You should begin to see results within one to six months. Patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours after treatment. You may see minor swelling post procedure which usually clears within one to five days.
