8 Weeks Post Treatment
Profound™ is the world’s first and only aesthetic procedure to deliver controlled energy directly into the deep dermis to stimulate the natural production of not only new collagen, but elastin and hyaluronic acid as well! For the first time, these three elements that add structure to the skin are effectively produced with one procedure.
Unlike traditional energy-based alternatives whose results are centered primarily on ‘tightening,’ Profound breaks new ground as the only aesthetic procedure to achieve a 3-dimensional improvement to the tone, quality, elasticity, and volume of your skin. Not only will your skin look younger, but it will behave younger as well.
Profound Delivers Safe, Effective Skin Rejuvenation
The first part of the procedure requires that your face and neck be anesthetized using a numbing agent which is injected from both inside the mouth and through the skin. Although patients say that this is the most uncomfortable part, they also say that it is quite tolerable — like getting numbed at the dentist!
Once the treatment area is numb, your skin will be cleansed with a special antiseptic solution and will then start the procedure with the Sublative™ system. Although you may hear the machine and will, of course, feel the doctor or nurse’s hands, the Profound procedure itself is (thanks to the numbing agent) pain-free!
Once the procedure is complete, your skin is coated with a little antibiotic ointment and you rest in the chair with a special ice facemask. When you go home you will be a bit swollen and red for a few days, and there may be some bruising. You should be able to wear makeup over the bruising the next day, but the lower face often looks like you have had a dental procedure for about 5-7 days. All of this resolves in about a week.
Only One Treatment Needed for Dramatic Improvement
The results of the Profound procedure begin to show as the swelling recedes and the maximum results are evident at about 6 months. Many clients have asked how many treatments will be needed. Remarkably, it is estimated that only a single treatment gives clients approximately 30% improvement when compared to a surgical facelift. Therefore it is possible to repeat the procedure in 6 months for even more improvement. If clients are wanting even more texture improvement on the skin skin surface we will combine the Profound procedure with a series of three Sublative™ treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
Cost: $3000 for Profound or $4800 for Profound + Sublative™ Series
