Profound is a minimally invasive treatment designed to help people who have sagging skin and loss of volume around the mouth, cheeks, and neck. A handheld device with tiny needles is placed on your skin, using radio-frequency technology, heat is released at a precise temperature and depth.
Many people notice signs of aging when skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag around the face, jawline and neck. Intrinsic aging, also known as the natural aging process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Lifestyle, diet, personal habits and sun exposure often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Most premature aging is caused by sun exposure (photo-aging). Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.

How Does Profound Work?
Profound works by helping the skin to build collagen and elastin.

No surgery, no injectables; just your body’s own collagen and elastin to help you turn back the clock on aging.
