Profound® Skin Therapy
When you are young, your body produces high levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, the production of these elements decreases as you age, and when this occurs, your skin and tissues become thinner and more fragile. The Profound® skin therapy system is clinically proven to stimulate the production of these three substances by combining radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling. This treatment results in a noticeable reduction of wrinkles, cellulite, and sagging skin on the face and body.

What is Profound® radiofrequency skin therapy?
Profound® skin therapy combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling. Radiofrequency energy is used to tighten skin and tissues. Microneedling creates superficial wounds that trigger the body’s healing response, stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Before the Profound® system, radiofrequency treatments were administered to the surface of the skin and were not always effective because the energy was not readily absorbed. By delivering the radiofrequency energy deep into the tissues through microneedling, Profound® skin therapy can guarantee noticeable skin tightening and the increased production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
How does Profound® work?
Profound® skin therapy precisely delivers radiofrequency energy to deeper layers of the skin for increased benefits. This treatment is performed in the safety and comfort of Wake Plastic Surgery’s designated treatment room. Once the area is numbed, the technician will use the Profound® handpiece to deliver brief pulses of radiofrequency energy deep into the skin or fatty tissue through fine needles. The RF energy administered through these micro-injuries will help boost the healing response to create a toned and slim appearance. This treatment takes between 30 and 45 minutes, and patients should have someone present to drive them home.
Is this procedure painful?
The Profound® treatment is performed under local anesthesia and uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency to reduce discomfort and ensure safety. Most patients find that this treatment is easily handled.
Why should you choose Profound®?
Men and women who are interested in an alternative to facelift surgery, fillers, or chemical treatments may find that the Profound® system is the answer they have been searching for. This non-invasive treatment is safe for all skin types and is clinically proven to provide smoother and more youthful-looking skin. It is the first RF microneedling device that has been cleared by the FDA for use on both the face and body. Profound® is beneficial for healthy men and women looking to postpone the need for more invasive procedures or for those looking to complement prior cosmetic surgery.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Profound® patients can return to work and their normal activities within 24 hours. Any redness or swelling is typically mild and can be covered with makeup. Patients should keep the treatment area clean and moisturized during the healing process.
Are there any side effects?
Profound® skin therapy is safe and does not cause any lasting or permanent side effects. Patients may experience temporary swelling, bruising, redness, or soreness in the treatment area that should resolve within 10 days.
How many treatments will I need?
The Profound® system only requires one treatment to see a significant reduction in wrinkles and cellulite as well as tightening of the skin. Most results begin to appear after two weeks and continue to improve over the next five to six months. While the quality of your results is dependent upon your age and skin quality, you can expect lasting rejuvenation and smoothness as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are produced. This procedure will not stop the natural aging process, however, and patients can prolong their results by practicing proper sun protection (including daily use of SPF 30 or higher), keeping their skin moisturized, and living a healthy lifestyle.Schedule A Consultation
