First Device to Create All 3 Skin Fundamentals. Profoundly.
Elastin. Collagen. Hyaluronic Acid.
Uniquely, Profound is clinically proven to create 3 vital skin elements: elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. These major skin building blocks work to create dermal volume.
Profound is the ﬁrst device with temperature controlled radiofrequency clinically and scientiﬁcally proven to deliver energy directly to the deep dermis to stimulate neo-elastogenesis, neocollagenesis and hyaluronic acid deposition.
- Creates elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, profoundly.
- Creates dermal volume, naturally, to answer a big concern: how to replace lost volume in aging skin.
- Yields 100% response for total patient satisfaction.
- Treats jawline, jowls, wrinkles and other textural considerations.
- Real time temperature control for unprecedented treatment control.
- Yields predictable results with complete control over depth, temperature and time of treatment.
Profound Naturally Solves the Biggest Problem of Aging Skin – Loss of Volume & Elasticity
For most physicians who provide aesthetic treatments, replacing lost volume in the dermis is one of the most challenging aspects of treating aging skin. Profound replaces this lost volume and elasticity by fostering neoelastinogenesis, neocollagenesis and the generation of new hyaluronic acid.
Profound uniquely generates new dermal volume. This is the result of the natural healing process following a carefully controlled thermal impact in the dermis. For patients who prefer a natural approach, dermal volume and elasticity is created by fostering the body’s own healing process, without ﬁllers or toxins.
The Science That Creates Skin, Profoundly
Profound uses a handpiece and cartridge containing 5 pairs of microneedles with electrodes to deliver bipolar radiofrequency energy directly into the deep reticular dermis, without thermal impact on the epidermis. A controlled high volume fractional injury to the dermis creates new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Profound’s approach creates true fractional zones of thermal injury where it will have the most impact and results in a solid foundation of new dermal volume. The epidermal and papillary dermal injury caused by the microneedle insertion may partly contribute to the global skin quality results.
Profound Laser Frequently Asked Questions
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 real-time 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.
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 treatment, which resolves within 1 to 5 days. Profound treatment is associated with minimal downtime and a return to normal activities on suture removal at 7 to 10 days.
Profound can be used to treat nasolabial and melolabial folds, jowls, submental, submandibular redundancy and neck strands by repairing the dynamic properties of the skin, elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, and restoring dermal volume loss.
