Why Consider the Profound System?

Patients seek treatments that:

  • Are less painful and invasive than surgery
  • Offer an alternative to the use of toxins and fillers 
  • Require more manageable downtime 

The Profound® system provides a non-surgical alternative to address aging skin:

Using radiofrequency (RF) injectable energy, it provides long-lasting facial wrinkle reduction and improves the appearance of cellulite.4,5

Key Benefits of Profound RF Microneedling

The Profound system can help your practice: 

Fill the treatment gap that exists between dermal injectables and invasive surgery 

  • Adopt new patients in advance of surgery 
  • Retain existing patients who are not ready for surgical procedures 
  • Increase revenue with complementary treatments and future procedures 

Bottom line: 

The Profound system enhances aesthetics practices by providing a clinically proven, non-surgical, single-treatment procedure1,4,5 that requires less practice expense and patient downtime.

  • "Profound takes us to the next level…we deliver the RF energy directly to the reticular dermis, which is the target. We also have real-time feedback of target tissue temperature and delivered energy, so we can control how much energy we deliver, as well as achieve and maintain a therapeutic temperature level exactly where the energy is supposed to go. In my experience, this device is by far the most effective for minimally invasive dermal volumizing in a single treatment."
    Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, Ph.D
    New Haven, CT, USA
  • "In my practice, Profound is our preferred and most effective treatment for skin volumizing and lifting of the face and neck. An additional benefit of the Profound treatment is the overall improvement in skin quality, and a noticeably greater elasticity of the skin."
    Leyda Bowes, MD
    Dermatologist Miami, Florida, USA
  • "Profound causes very precise dermal injuries that arouse an anabolic wound healing response which stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin in a way that we’ve not seen before. We are consistently able to create younger, more elastic skin, in addition to improving volume. Even patients in their thirties could periodically turn back the clock on early laxity and loss of volume."
    Andrea Willey, MD
    Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California Sacramento, CA
  • "We all know that the key to maximizing results is the ability to maximize the delivery of adequate treatment energy to achieve the desired effect. It’s easy for us to tell how much energy we’re using, but how do we know if it is being delivered to the target, and if it is enough to help us achieve the desired result? Profound is able to answer these questions, so users can rely on more than reasonable expectations."
    James Newman, MD
    Facial Plastic Surgeon, Medical Director, Premier Plastic Surgery Palo Alto and San Mateo CA
  • “In my practice, I have used the SubQ handpiece for the Profound device on study patients for reduction of submental fat. I feel confident that this handpiece is reaching sufficient depth to destroy submental fat. This will allow me to offer a new treatment in the office with minimal downtime to patients desiring reduction in submental fat.”
    Mark M. Beaty, M.D.
  • “Given the cost of the Profound device, the predictable results, what you can get per treatment, the ROI is probably the best of any machine that I have ever had.”
    Nima Naghshineh, M.D., M.Sc.
