One & Done: The Profound® Treatment

Topics: Skin Health


As an alternative to plastic surgery, the Profound® system is an FDA-approved treatment used to reduce wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite on the face and body. With a patented technology that induces the body’s natural healing process to regenerate skin fundamentals, the Profound® system creates younger and smoother looking skin after just one treatment.

The Science

The three most important skin fundamentals for the healing process are elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid.

Elastin is a highly elastic protein that helps the skin return back to normal after stretching from pokes, pinches, scratches, etc.

Collagen, similar to elastin, helps support the structure of your skin by assisting strength and durability, which can reduce wrinkles and improve your complexion.

Hyaluronic acid is a protein in your skin that binds to water, helping to keep your skin moist, durable and youthful.

In one powerful treatment, the Profound® system ignites cell turnover in all three proteins to reduce wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite.

Clinically proven

In a recent study, the Profound® system was analyzed for the treatment of mild to severe facial wrinkles in one hundred patients. At six months post-treatment, evaluations received a 100 percent response rate for the reduction of facial wrinkles.[1]

In a separate study, patients were analyzed for the treatment of cellulite in the thigh region. At three months post-treatment, evaluations received a 94 percent response rate for reduced cellulite severity in the treated thigh region.[2]

What should I expect from my Profound® treatment?

During your consultation, your physician will determine your goals and establish the target area for treatment. On the day of your treatment, your physician will administer treatment with the Profound® system, which will deliver pulses of energy to the targeted areas. A local anesthetic may be applied to help manage your comfort.

Post-treatment, your physician will discuss an individual care plan. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours after treatment.

The Profound® system is clinically proven to show results following one non-surgical treatment. One Profound® treatment is all it takes to help you delay the signs of aging.
