Profound

Master
Content

The Profound is a bipolar fractional radiofrequency device that produces a natural, nonsurgical alternative to a facelift.  This exciting technology was recently featured on KHOU news. Baylor Medicine is a leading national expert on the use of this technology and has multiple additional publications and studies specific to the Profound in progress. The device uses tiny needles to generate precisely the correct amount of heat in skin to stimulate your body to produce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.  Unlike other devices on the market that require multiple treatments to achieve results, the Profound offers impressive tightening with a single treatment.  This is a slow process and takes 2 to 3 months to start seeing results which will continue to improve for up to a year.  It can be used for deep wrinkles, jowl improvement, neck tightening, crepey skin and cellulite.  Most people are bruised/swollen for 5 to 7 days but are able to resume normal activity the day after the procedure.
