What is Profound

The Profound system is the first and only radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device with FDA clearance for face and body.4 A non-surgical alternative to address aging skin, the Profound system uses RF energy to provide long-lasting facial wrinkle reduction and improve the appearance of cellulite.4,5

How it works

Dermal module for facial wrinkles

Bipolar RF energy delivered to deep reticular dermis provides thermal damage to dermis without thermal impact on epidermis.

Subcutaneous module for cellulite

Bipolar RF energy targets deeper skin layers to coagulate adipose tissue and remodel cellulite.
