At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we are pleased to offer one of the largest breakthroughs in facial aesthetics. Dr. Heil performs a non-surgical mini-facelift using Profound RF technology. This innovative system is the first of its kind, with the unique ability to create all three building blocks for youthful skin. By delivering temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy through microneedling, this device stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, these foundational components are lost as we age. Therefore, Profound can effectively reverse the signs of facial aging by adding volume and improving the overall texture and quality of the skin. Profound is safe for all skin types and clinically proven to reduce facial wrinkles and restore skin laxity.

What Are The Advantages of Profound?

Profound offers remarkable advantages. Patients can enjoy the dramatic results of a mini facelift in the most natural yet least invasive way possible. It is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that allows for minimal downtime, with most patients returning to normal activities within 24 to 48 hours. Profound laser is ideal for patients who want a natural approach to facial rejuvenation, as it does not rely on fillers or injectables. Instead, dermal volume and elasticity are formed by triggering the body’s own natural healing process within the deep dermis layer of the skin. To further support patient convenience, only one treatment of Profound is needed to achieve results.

How Long Will The Results Last?

The Profound treatment promotes the natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy skin over time. Most patients report seeing improvements 6-8 weeks post treatment. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results may not be observed for at least 3-6 months after treatment. There are a number of factors that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age, and how you care for your skin after the treatment. We will educate you on how to maintain prolonged results.

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 elastic and losing its spring: think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil. Profound is a clinically-proven nonsurgical facelift that builds elastin and collagen. By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time, Profound leads to the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin.
