The pursuit of eternal youth has been a constant desire among people, especially as they age. While there is no such thing as a fountain of youth, advancements in technology and medicine have made it possible to reverse some signs of aging through various skin treatments.
One popular treatment that has gained attention in recent years is Profound Skin Treatment. This minimally invasive procedure promises to improve the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. In this page, we will dive deeper into what Profound Skin Treatment is all about and how our anti-aging treatments can help you look younger.
What is Profound Skin Treatment?
Profound offers an exceptional, highly personalized treatment that effectively addresses the key signs of aging and cellulite on both women and men. With our state-of-the-art Profound system, you can achieve remarkable results, including increased volume, reduced wrinkles, and restored elasticity, all while experiencing minimal downtime.

How Does Profound Work?
During Profound treatments, the deep dermis is precisely targeted using patented Real Time Temperature and Impedance Control. The system employs micro-needle electrodes to accurately locate areas with the highest collagen concentration, without impacting the skin thermally. Profound triggers a wound healing response, stimulating the natural formation of new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. This ultimately leads to a noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance. Furthermore, during cellulite treatments, Profound helps increase dermal thickness and reduce the storage of fat cells, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Benefits of Profound Skin Treatment
Profound skin treatment offers numerous benefits, making it a popular choice among those seeking anti-aging treatments. Some of the key advantages include:
- Non-surgical: Unlike traditional facelifts, Profound is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any incisions or general anesthesia.
- Minimal downtime: The recovery period for Profound is typically much shorter compared to other surgical options, with most patients returning to their normal activities within a few days.
- Natural-looking results: The process of stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin production ensures that the results appear gradual and natural, unlike other treatments that can create an overly “frozen” or “pulled” appearance.
- Customizable: The intensity and depth of treatment can be adjusted based on the specific needs and goals of each patient, providing a truly personalized experience.
Profound Pre and Post Treatment Instructions
- hydrate sufficiently (64 fluid ounces daily for one week prior to treatment),
- eat a substantial meal pre-treatment,
- avoid alcohol for 7 days prior to the procedure to decrease the risk of bruising
- avoid any NSAIDS for 14 days prior to treatment.
- If you have a history of cold sores, please inform your Provider as you may need to be pretreated with an antiviral medication.
- Discontinue topical retinoids or other skin irritants for a minimum of 3-5 days prior to treatment.
- Avoid prolonged sun exposure and use SPF 30+.
- Immediately following treatment, area will be cleansed with sterile NS, then we will apply the SkinMedica Post Procedure Repair Complex and then the Restorative Ointment.
- Ice for 45 minutes directly following treatment. Then every 2 hours, for 20-minutes on/off intervals, on day of treatment. This will help to decrease likelihood of indurations, extended bruising, and increase comfort.
- 1-week post treatment and while healing, wash treated area 3-5 times daily with tepid water and Elta Foaming face wash. Avoid wash cloths, harsh irritants, and scrubs. Pat dry and do not rub.
- Keep the area treated as hydrated as possible for one-week post treatment. The area should be covered with clothing or SPF 30 or higher sunblock containing the zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide at all times, we recommend Elta UV Facial Broad-Spectrum SPF 30. Apply the Post Procedure Repair Complex before the UV Facial sunscreen. Wait approximately 10 minutes after application of the sunscreen and then apply a layer of the Restorative Ointment. The area treated should have a consistent glazed like appearance at all times for one-week post treatment.
- It is recommended to sleep with head elevated post treatment. Change your pillowcase daily or lay a clean towel each night. Avoid sleeping with pets.
- For the first 24 hours post treatment it is recommended to avoid rigorous exercise, any activities that would stimulate heat, vasodilation, do not take a hot bath or sit in a sauna, etc.
- For 4 to 6 weeks post treatment, please avoid sun exposure. If going outside (even getting into a car, going for a walk) please make sure to cover the area with clothing and apply the Elta UV Facial Broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside.
- Do not pick at the treated area. It is imperative to let the area heal on its own. If the area is picked at and further interruption of the epidermal layer occurs, this can increase the risk of infection, PIH, and other post procedure complications.
