What is Profound Facial Treatment?

Profound facial treatment is a nonsurgical alternative to a face lift for treating facial wrinkles. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to renew your skin from within. As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and becomes more fragile. This is a result of our body’s collagen levels decreasing, elastin production stopping and hyaluronic acid diminishing.

How does Profound work?
A single Profound treatment stimulates your face to naturally reproduce the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue. The Profound face treatment is clinically proven to stimulate your body’s own wound-healing response to reduce the signs of aging without the use of chemicals or surgery and create lasting volume and firmness for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Your consultation?
During your evaluation your medical provider will review your medical history and medications as well as evaluate your skin and discuss your expectations. Certain medical conditions and medications can increase procedure risks and recovery time. We may also recommend prophylactic anti-viral medication to prevent any cold sore outbreaks after your procedure.

Your medical provider will define the problem areas and the treatment pattern to be used and take baseline pre-procedure photographs. Typically, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and having a family member or friend with you to drive you home after the procedure. Before treatment you will receive an entire briefing of what to expect, potential risks and side effects, and how to care for yourself after the procedure.

The procedure
A combination of topical and injected local anesthetic will be used to maximize your comfort before the procedure. We use many specialized techniques to minimize discomfort during the numbing process. If you are anxious, you may be offered a medication to help decrease anxiety, but you will be awake during your treatment. Once numb and comfortable, your medical advisor will use a combination of treatment settings specifically tailored to your skin type and degree of rejuvenation desired. A radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) is used to naturally reproduce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue. Following treatment, an emollient is applied and post-care instructions are re-reviewed. The whole procedure from photos to post-treatment typically takes 1-1.5 hours.

Post-treatment and recovery
You will receive detailed instructions for postoperative care. Following these instructions is essential for maximizing your comfort, for achieving best results, and to avoid complications.

After your Profound laser face treatment, you will look like you have had a “vampire facial” and your skin will be warm. Initially, swelling is usually most significant around the eyes and mouth. It is normal for the skin to be moist and even contain some crusting. Over the course of 3-5 days, the old damaged skin will begin to come off and light flaking will continue for up to 10 days.

Although your skin can remain pink for a few weeks, most patients are able to apply make-up in 7-10 days post-treatment. We will watch your healing closely to make sure you are progressing well and that you are healing as expected. Our staff is available for any questions you may have during your recovery period.

Although your skin will be visibly tighter and smoother in 1 week after the procedure, final results are typically seen at 3-6 months later as it takes time for new collagen to synthesize.

At Transcend Total Body Rejuvenation we have the skills, experience and expertise to deliver superior, individualized results.
