What is Profound treatment?
Profound is a minimally invasive bipolar RF system with patented Real Time Temperature Control that utilizes 5 pairs of micro-needle electrodes, deployed into the dermis, to precisely deliver fractionated thermal injuries in the deep reticular dermis, where the concentration of collagen is the highest. Fractionated thermal zones are created within the dermis, without thermal impact to the epidermis. Thermal injury to treated areas stimulates would healing, dermal remodeling and new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation, resulting in visible skin improvement.
The Profound system incorporates temperature sensors embedded within the micro-needles and a realtime temperature feedback algorithm to reach and maintain an optical dermal temperature of 67°C for 3-4 seconds, regardless of skin impedance or thermal conditions. Only Profound’s temperature-based feedback algorithm can predictably meet the desired thermal endpoint. With this unique approach, a vigorous wound healing response is initiated with a profound increase in elastin and collagen observed at 10 weeks after treatment; thereby, resulting in greater clinical efficacy for rhytid and skin laxity treatment.
Profound leads to the creation of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks to keep your skin smooth. Be You. Be Profound.

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. Studies have shown that a single Profound treatment has a 100% response rate for rhytides and 95% for laxity at 6 months after treatment*. 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 reatment, which resolves within 1 to 5 days. Profound treatment is associated with minimal downtime compared to surgical face lift 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.
