What is Profound?
Profound is a minimally invasive, radio-frequency procedure designed to create new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. Without surgery, Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.
By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature and for an exact amount of time, Profound treatments effectively and dramatically create dermal volume as well as tighten and tone lax and “crepey” skin on the face, neck and arms. Profound also successfully treats cellulite on the legs.
Ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging. If you are interested in Profound, please contact our offices for a consultation.
The Asarch Center is proud to be the only Luminary Center of Excellence for Profound in Colorado.
What can patients expect from Profound treatment?
Ideally, skin rejuvenation treatment should result in good aesthetic outcome with minimal risk of complications. Neoelastogenesis and neocollagenesis should be clinically correlated with less skin laxity, greater elasticity and increased dermal volume. Profound was developed to improve the efficacy and predictability of nonsurgical treatments.
Patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours after treatment. Minimal to moderate erythema is to be expected with resolution within 2-12 hours. Generalized edema may occur following treatment, which resolves within 1 to 5 days. Profound treatment is associated with minimal downtime compared to surgical facelift in which patients experience scarring at surgical margins, erythema, edema, and ecchymosis, and a return to normal activities on suture removal at 7 to 10 days.
Benefits of Profound
Profound can improve the following signs of aging:
- Sagging jowls and loose skin on your face and neck
- Redefine the jawline and eliminate double chins
- Treat other areas of loose or crepey skin
What percentage of patients respond to treatment?
Studies have shown that a single Profound treatment has a 100% response rate for rhytides and 95% for laxity at 6 months after treatment*.
