Profound Procedure: The Results of Surgery, Without the Surgery!

Are you looking for younger, fuller skin? Maybe you have wrinkles you’d love to see disappear? Maybe you’re self-conscious about an area of cellulite? A revolutionary new energy-based treatment, known as Profound, can produce lifted, smoothed, contoured skin without a surgical procedure. Learn more about this wonderful technology from Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery in metro Atlanta.

How Does the Profound Procedure Work?

ProfoundThe Profound procedure utilizes a radio frequency device to help rejuvenate and revitalize the skin at deeper levels, awakening the body’s natural healing process. The Profound device targets the production of three naturally-occurring skin components– collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These three elements create volume and firmness to the skin. Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down and the skin begins to sag and wrinkle.

Profound stimulates natural reproduction of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue. This procedure tightens the skin of the jowls and neck and adds volume to the cheeks for a more youthful look. When combating the appearance of cellulite, the same components are reproduced naturally and create a smoother skin surface without the dimples we see when cellulite is present.

What Happens During the Profound Procedure?

Profound is a quick, single treatment performed at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery, usually in 45 minutes or less. Dr. Beaty will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers precise temperature treatments to deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy is being most beneficial.

Is Profound Better than a Facelift?

It is important to know that Profound is not meant to replace a surgical facelift.  We are targeting the lines and wrinkles in a different way than we do with surgery.  It is best to think of this as a way to provide skin tightening and not a change to the facial anatomy.

Who is a Good Candidate for the Profound Procedure?

The ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging, improved skin laxity, and combat cellulite. Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery offers consultations at convenient times to accommodate our patients’ busy lifestyles.

Is There Downtime with the Profound Procedure?

Because the body is working to stimulate a natural healing process, the procedure may cause slight swelling or redness at the treatment site. There may also be slight bruising. These side effects should last no longer than a week.

Will I be Able to Drive Myself Home after the Treatment?

We apply topical numbing cream and injection numbing, so yes you can drive yourself to and from your treatment.  However, some patients may require an additional prescription to make them more comfortable.  These patients will need to arrange transportation with a friend, family member, or someone they are comfortable with for after.

How Long Will the Results Last?

The Profound procedure is usually done in one single treatment. Profound treatment had a 100% response rate with wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity in clinical trials. Results typically begin to show two weeks after the procedure, but most people see maximum results between three and nine months after the procedure.

What is the Cost of Profound?

Each patient will receive a quote at the end of their consultation which outlines the cost for their specific treatment.  The treatment starts at $3000.
