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 Profound Work?
The 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.
Reduce Wrinkles with Profound
What Happens During the non-surgical facelift?
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. Profound can be described as a non-surgical facelift alternative for those who do not need or are not ready for a full facelift.
non-surgical facelift Candidates
The ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging, improve 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 Non-Invasive FaceLift?
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.
PROFOUND TREATMENT Results*
Profound procedure is usually done in one single treatment. This 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.
how much does this Facelift alternative cost?
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.
Can Profound be used on other areas of the body?
Profound can be used for skin tightening on multiple areas of the body, as well as for the treatment of cellulite and hyperhidrosis.
Profound for skin tightening of the body
- Abdomen: Treatment of mild to moderate laxity of abdominal skin, often after fat reduction. Dr. Beaty and his team use Profound in combination with CoolSculpting to both contour and tighten the abdomen. Stretch marks of the abdomen may also be improved.
- Decollete: many women develop fine lines or stria in the decollete. Profound improves the appearance of this area by tightening and thickening the skin, making the lines less apparent.
- Above the knees: Dr. Beaty uses Profound to tighten loose skin above the knees which may cause unsightly skin folds
cellulite Treatment With Profound
Profound is the most promising treatment for cellulite we have seen in our practice. Cellulite is a notoriously difficult problem to control, resulting in uneven, lumpy appearance in the thighs and bottom. Cellulite involves both excessive fatty tissue under the skin and fibrous bands tethering the skin to underlying tissues. This results in the characteristic lumpy appearance. To treat cellulite we must both eliminate the fatty tufts and allow the skin to adhere evenly to the underlying tissues. Profound uses radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat and create adherence, preventing recurrence of the fat tufts and providing long-lasting results from a single session.
Profound for treatment of hyperhidrosis
Profound uses radiofrequency energy to reduce the number of sweat glands in targeted areas, most frequently under the arms. The advantage over other treatments is the permanence of results. Sweat reduction is apparent from the first treatment through multiple treatments are usually needed for best results.
