Aging deals a blow to skin laxity, no doubt about it. The fault lies with waning collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Fortunately, leading global aesthetic manufacturer Syneron Candela has developed Profound, the latest device for skin tightening technology. The Profound radiofrequency microneedling system has been clinically proven to recreate skin’s building blocks. A single treatment can have a profound impact on your rejuvenation campaign – ideal for cheeks, jawline and neck contouring as well as being an effective weapon against cellulite and crepey skin.

“I’m really excited by the results our patients are seeing with Profound,” said Dr. Timothy Jochen, Board Certified Dermatologist of Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. “Profound works. It’s a powerful tool that combines two effective technologies for even greater performance for noticeable improvement in wrinkle reduction and skin laxity.”

What sets Profound apart from other radiofrequency devices is its ability to control the exact temperature of the skin as the RF energy is applied. Other RF devices only control skin temperature within a range. Maintaining an optimum temperature creates optimum conditions which lead to neogenesis and collagenesis. Meanwhile, microneedling is a process whereby many tiny needles puncture the skin to create controlled injuries, which in turn trigger the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Profound RF microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that results in minimal downtime. Most patients resume normal activities within 24 to 48 hours. Clinical studies reveal a 100 percent response rate for wrinkles and a 95 percent response rate for skin laxity. Remarkably, only one 45- to 90-minute treatment is needed. Comparable to a mini facelift, Profound can deliver dramatic results.
