What is Profound?
Profound is a radiofrequency microneedling device that uses heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Those naturally occurring compounds help keep your skin firm, smooth, and wrinkle-free. Your body starts to make less of them once you hit your 20s, and there's no natural way to make more.
During your Profound treatment, the microneedle penetration depth and radiofrequency heat are calculated to most efficiently promote the growth of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
What Can Profound Treat?
Profound is effective against facial skin conditions such as:
- Sagging jowls
- Loose skin
- Double chins
- Lost skin volume
Your Profound Nonsurgical Facelift Procedure
Dr. Miller will apply a topical anesthetic to your face to maximize your comfort. Then he'll treat your target areas using the Profound device. The microneedles will penetrate between two and four millimeters into your skin, then deliver the heat energy in bursts about four seconds long.
The procedure will take about 45 minutes. You should only need one treatment to eliminate wrinkles and see marked improvements in skin volume and elasticity. Profound patients report a 100% response rate for facial wrinkles.
Profound also involves no downtime. You can drive yourself home after your treatment. You will experience some redness and swelling that should last no longer than a week. One to two days after your procedure, you can cover any red or swollen areas with makeup.
Does Profound Facelift Treatment Hurt?
There’s no need to worry about experiencing pain during your Profound non-surgical facelift. You’ll receive a topical anesthetic or an injection of a local anesthetic before your treatment begins. Dr. Miller will also check in with you throughout the process to make sure you’re comfortable.
Some patients report feeling a gentle warming sensation during their appointment. Others say that they noticed light pressure as the device was pressed into their skin. Regardless, the Profound non-surgical facelift is generally very tolerable.
Can I Combine My Profound Facelift With Other Procedures?
Profound can be combined with other treatments to achieve the most comprehensive results. It’s often used in conjunction with chemical peels, injectables, and other minimally invasive services.
The right combination can dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin. Talk to Dr. Miller about building your perfect facial rejuvenation treatment plan today.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Profound?
Profound is a great fit for virtually anyone looking to reduce signs of aging without surgery. You may be a good candidate if you’re experiencing fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, or volume loss. It is safe for all skin types and tones — something that can’t be said about other types of RF microneedling.
If you have active acne, psoriasis, or eczema, or if you’re currently pregnant, this treatment might not be right for you. It can also trigger cold sores if you have a history of them. Schedule a consultation to learn more about the factors that can affect your candidacy.
Are There Any Side Effects of the Profound Facelift?
Profound is a safe and effective treatment with a low risk of side effects. The most common side effects are temporary bruising, swelling, and redness. You can reduce these outcomes by choosing a qualified provider and following the post-treatment guidelines.
Other potential side effects include changes in your skin’s pigmentation and fat loss. Our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you weigh the specific risks and benefits of this treatment. Most patients get through the healing process without any problems and enjoy excellent results.
"I’m the happiest I’ve been in a very long time. I feel so beautiful, safe and cared for. You did such an incredible job!"
When Will I See the Results of Profound?
You should start to notice an improvement about two to four weeks after treatment. Optimal results can take up to six months to manifest, depending on your age, health, skincare routine, and other factors.
The effects of Profound appear gradually because of the time it takes for new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to develop. However, with the compassionate care of Dr. Miller and the exceptional results Profound can deliver, it will be worth your wait.
How Long Does a Profound Facelift Last?
Profound is a one-of-a-kind service that offers long-lasting results. You should be able to enjoy younger, smoother-looking skin for one to three years after your treatment.
The reason Profound is so effective is that it increases the natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. These are the three fundamentals for healthy and firm skin.
You can improve the longevity of your Profound non-surgical facelift results with the following aftercare:
- Wear sunscreen daily
- Use medical-grade skin care
- Eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated
- Do not smoke or use nicotine products
How is Profound Different From Other Facial Anti-Aging Treatments?
Profound is a middle ground between injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and a full surgical facelift. Injectables deliver results that appear within days of treatment and last three to four months in the case of BOTOX® Cosmetic and up to 18 months for some dermal fillers. On the other end of the spectrum, facelifts offer more dramatic and permanent outcomes.
Profound delivers results more vivid and longer-lasting than injectables while being less invasive than a facelift. During your consultation, Dr. Miller will weigh your aesthetic goals with factors like your health and age to help determine the anti-aging procedure best suited to you.
