Profound (formally known as ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure) is a radiofrequency treatment using the Profound device to tighten the skin but also create more volume and elastic tissue especially in the area around the jowls and the wrinkles around the mouth. Profound stimulates the reproduction of hyaluronic acid, new collagen and elastin. Studies have shown that the Profound procedure produces one-third the effect of a surgical face-lift.
Good candidates for the Profound procedure are people who have sagging skin, especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, as well as upper lip wrinkles. Profound is good for all skin types as the radio frequency energy is color-blind, allowing this to be a safe treatment for persons with Asian, Hispanic, African-American or Indian skin.
Profound is usually one single treatment. This technology is a machine manufactured by Syneron utilizing a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed by the doctor on the areas that have been pre-determined to provide maximal effect. Then needles penetrate into the skin and release heat for a specific amount of time at a precise temperature and depth. This high energy then stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastic tissue.
The Parker Skin & Aesthetic Clinic is one of the very few providers in the Midwest to offer this truly groundbreaking new procedure.
The desired result is a more lifted appearance, firmer and smoother skin, wrinkle reduction, an improvement of the jowls and improvement of the sagging skin on the upper neck. There is also filling of the very thin skin that makes the face appear more youthful. As the body replaces old collagen and elastic tissue with new collagen and elastic tissue, you will see an improvement over several months. Maximum treatment effects are seen over a 6-9 month period, results are usually visible in as little as 2 weeks.
Profound is unique as a procedure because it can lift,volumize and tighten with one procedure. If you are looking to have a rejuvenated and younger appearance, a Profound treatment can be combined with fillers, BOTOX®, lasers but not on the same day.
