Am I A GoodCandidate?
Good candidates for the Profound procedures are people who have sagging skin especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, as well as wrinkles along the upper lip. Profound is good for all skin types as the radiofrequency energy is color blind, allowing this to be a safe treatment for persons with Asian, Hispanic, African American and Indian skin.
Profound is usually one single treatment and is done under local anesthetic in the office setting.
Profound RF Skin TighteningTreatment
Profound is a machine manufactured by Syneron utilizing a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed by the doctor on the areas of the skin to be treated. The needles penetrate into the skin and release heat for a specific amount for time at a precise temperature and depth. This stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastin in that tissue.
