What is Profound?Profound is a minimally invasive, non-surgical facelift. The treatment uses radiofrequency to tighten skin while creating more volume and elastic tissue. Profound, formally known as the ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure, stimulates the reproduction of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The Profound technology is a machine manufactured by Syneron, which utilizes a handpiece with a throwaway cartridge. The cartridge is made up of an arrangement of radiofrequency energy needles. When the needles penetrate the skin, heat is released for a set amount of time at the precise depth and temperature to stimulate the body and make new collagen and elastic tissue.

Who is a Candidate for Profound?The ideal candidate for the Profound procedure is someone with sagging skin, wrinkles, or loss of volume around the mouth, jowls, or cheeks. The radiofrequency energy is safe for all skin types. However, if you are pregnant, have a history of skin healing issues, or a pacemaker the Profound procedure isn’t recommended.
What Is the Profound Procedure?The Profound procedure is usually performed with one treatment in our office. You will receive local anesthesia in the problem areas you want to be treated. You won’t experience any pain during or after the treatment. Once the treatment area is numb, Dr. Killingsworth will apply the handpiece and deploy the microneedles. Once the needles are in place, the electrodes are activated. Dr. Killingsworth will repeat this process over the entire area until everything has been treated. The procedure takes between 45 and 90 minutes, and you can drive home or continue your usual daily activities afterward. Results are visible within a few weeks and will continue to improve for another 10 to 12 months.
