Profound™ Skin Tightening

Over the years, fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and skin laxity have long been treated with laser therapies and other devices with varying results. Jowling, facial sagging, and skin laxity of the neck frequently are treated with plastic surgery. Many believe that these issues can only be treated with a surgical facelift or necklift which can produce a very nice result, but what about patients who don't require surgery or would prefer a less invasive approach? Profound™ a radiofrequency microneedling device from Syneron Candela® offers an exciting new option for skin tightening and nonsurgical facelift for our Spokane and Coeur d'Alene patients. Profound™ treatment can create impressive, custom-tailored results that lift and volumize faces, smooth jawlines, and contour leg cellulite and wrinkles.

The Basics of Profound

The Profound™ device couples radiofrequency energy with a microneedling delivery system to the deep layer of the skin that stimulates the development of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid — the indispensable building blocks of skin! Although these ingredients occur naturally in our bodies, their production slows as we age and elastin starts to break down…thus becoming less elastic and losing its spring. This leads to laxity, wrinkles, loss of volume, and a general reduction in skin's quality. Profound™ reinvigorates your skin's production of these ingredients, and reduces small fat deposits, for overall improvement. Profound™ is especially good at treating the following:

  • Laxity and loss of volume along the lower face, jawline, and neck
  • Sagging skin on the abdomen, arms and legs
  • Lines, wrinkles, and other textural irregularities throughout the lower face

While Profound can create impressive results, some patients may be better suited for different procedures, such as a liquid facelift, microneedling, or Smartlipo. Profound can also be used in combination with these procedures and PRP (platelet rich plasma) to achieve superior results.

Profound Before and After

Your Experience

Your Profound treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure in our office. We apply a light local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. When administered to either the deep dermis or subcutaneous layer, the procedure delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper supportive structures of the skin through pairs of fine insulated microneedles. These microneedles are inserted into the anesthetized skin. You may feel a sensation of warmth or tingling as the treatment is performed but it should not hurt. You may experience some mild to moderate bruising and swelling for 5 days after the procedure. There is not much maintenance for the patient to perform during recovery. In a clinical study and also in our experience in our practice 100% of patients responded to the treatment, reporting rejuvenated tighter skin as early as 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure and continued improvement for the next year. The Profound treatment in our opinion is the best skin tightening device on the market right now.
