The Non-Surgical, Mini Face-Lift

At La Chele Medical Aesthetics we are excited to offer one the biggest breakthroughs in skin rejuvenation. Profound is an innovative non-surgical, single treatment that replaces lost volume while lifting, smoothing and contouring aging skin. Profound is considered 38% of a surgical face-lift and is clinically proven to recreate the 3 building blocks of youthful, toned skin – collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Profound is the first and only device with temperature controlled bipolar radio frequency and microneedles to create elastin and collagen while boosting the body’s own hyaluronic acid resulting in a boost of dermal volume. What makes this treatment unique is that these microneedles heat to a controlled temperature that holds for 3-4 seconds triggering a healing response for optimal dermal remodeling. Profound can effectively reverse the signs of facial aging by increasing volume and improving the overall skin texture and quality. Not only is Profound safe for all skin types, it is clinically proven to reduce facial wrinkles and restore skin laxity.



What Are the Benefits of Profound?

Profound has remarkable benefits and offers patients dramatic results that can help them look years younger. One of the greatest advantages is that it can be an alternative to going under the knife. We consider Profound to be that of a mini face-lift which is performed in the least invasive way possible. Not only is the downtime limited, patients can return to their everyday activities in as little as 24-48 hours post-treatment. This natural approach to skin rejuvenation does not involve the use of dermal fillers. Instead, the bodies natural healing process within the dermis layer of the skin is triggered to improve volume and elasticity in the skin.

What does the Profound Treatment Entail?

Profound is a quick treatment that usually requires 60 minutes from start to finish. Before starting the procedure, our Nurse Practitioner will inject a local anesthetic for to ensure your comfort during your Profound treatment. The Profound device will deliver temperature controlled healing deep into the skin layers to stimulate the production of the three key building blocks of youthful skin – elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Unlike the surgical face-lift that involves general anesthesia, long recovery time and deep incisions into the skin, patients who choose Profound usually only experience downtime lasting between 4-7 days.
