How Profound® Works to Improve the Appearance of Your Skin

If you’re looking for a profound change in the health of your skin, you may be a great candidate for the minimally invasive Profound® procedure available here at Bopp Dermatology. Dr. Felix Bopp uses this revolutionary device to reduce the severity of wrinkles and improve skin laxity, while also addressing fat that hides below the skin’s surface.

Profound® technology offers long-term results with younger-looking, healthier skin. Dr. Bopp designs a custom treatment plan to target areas of your skin that leave you dissatisfied with your appearance.

Understanding the science of Profound®

Profound® is a minimally invasive treatment option that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat deep layers of tissue beneath the skin.

Dr. Bopp offers two different types of treatments using the Profound® technology — the Dermal and SubQ procedures. By changing the Profound® handpiece, he can address either the wrinkled, sagging areas of skin or the stubborn fat under the chin.

Profound® Dermal

Using the handpiece with 5 pairs of microneedles that Dr. Bopp delivers RF energy into the dermal tissue, creating a thermal injury. Your body reacts to the injury by producing new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, three natural substances necessary for more toned, supple skin.

In the weeks after treatment, you’ll notice a significant improvement in the texture and tone of your skin. The treatment area feels tighter and more like it did when you were younger.

Profound® SubQ

When excess fat affects how you feel about your appearance, Dr. Bopp can use the SubQ handpiece which contains seven pairs of microneedles to deliver RF energy into the deep, subcutaneous layers of your tissue.

Rather than targeting wrinkles and creases, the SubQ handpiece targets the submental fat that gives you a double-chin appearance. The RF energy heats the fat, destroying the structure of the fat cells.

After treatment, fat continues to break down and your body eliminates it naturally as waste without additional treatment. Over time, you can see a significant difference in the contours of your neck and face as your double chin shrinks.

The many benefits of Profound® technology

Not only is Profound® powerful enough to produce amazing results, it’s gentle enough to use safely on the delicate skin of your neck and face. You can finally address wrinkles without concerns of infection or risks of anesthesia that are common with traditional facelift surgery.

One of the biggest reasons Profound® is so popular is the long-lasting results you can enjoy without any downtime. Many people go right back to their usual schedule after their appointment and nobody is the wiser.

Treatments are tailored to your individual needs, so you’ll get exactly the treatment that’s best for you. Since Profound® stimulates your body’s own natural healing ability, and the results take some time to develop, you don’t have to worry about looking overdone or fake after your Profound® treatment. It can take a few months before you see optimal results of Profound® treatments, but it’ll be worth the wait.
