In 2016, Syneron, the makers of Profound® approached me to investigate their device for body indications. Why me? My work with Ultherapy® is well known in medical circles, and the developer of Profound®, a research dermatologist and good friend, intimately knows my work. Profound® specifically heats the dermis to a precise target temperature where one’s genes for collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin are activated. Developed over nine years, and well-studied, it appears to be a game changing technology, a paradigm shift in skin rejuvenation. We are currently examining where Profound® works best on the body. The 2016 patients’ results have been nothing less than impressive, visually as well as to touch. FDA approved for skin rejuvenation and cellulite, true non-surgical body rejuvenation is upon us.
Profound is a revolutionary new energy-based facial treatment designed to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. All without surgery, fillers or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.
What is the effect of a lack of elastin and collagen as we age?
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down, becoming less elastin and losing its spring. think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil.
