Profound Radio Frequency Skin Rejuvenation
Are you looking for younger, fuller skin? Maybe you have wrinkles you’d love to see disappear? Maybe you’re self-conscious about an area of cellulite? A revolutionary new energy-based treatment, known as Profound, can produce lifted, smoothed, contoured skin without a surgical procedure.
How does the Profound Procedure work?
The Profound procedure utilizes a radio frequency device to help rejuvenate and revitalize the skin at deeper levels, awakening the body’s natural healing process. The Profound device targets the production of three naturally-occurring skin components– collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These three elements create volume and firmness to the skin. Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down and the skin begins to sag and wrinkle.
Profound stimulates natural reproduction of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to revitalize the skin and build new, healthy tissue. This procedure tightens the skin of the jowls and neck and adds volume to the cheeks for a more youthful look. When combating the appearance of cellulite, the same components are reproduced naturally and create a smoother skin surface without the dimples we see when cellulite is present.
Profound (formally known as ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure) is a radiofrequency treatment using the Profound device to tighten the skin but also create more volume and elastic tissue especially in the area around the jowls and the wrinkles around the mouth.
Profound stimulates the reproduction of hyaluronic acid, new collagen and elastin. Studies have shown that the Profound procedure produces one-third the effect of a surgical face-lift.

The Fundamentals That Drive Skin Breakdown
Many currently available radiofrequency devices offer real-time control of energy, but the Profound® system by Candela is the only FDA-cleared, long-pulse radiofrequency device that also offers real-time temperature control.
Why Does This Matter? In devices that control the duration of energy delivered without simultaneously controlling the local tissue temperature, there is a risk of creating excess heat beneath the skin, thereby causing excessive damage and possibly ulcer formation. The ability of the Profound® system to control temperature in real-time means that the wound healing process is more controlled. That leads to
less likelihood of tissue damage and optimal production of our three core tenets of skin health – elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROFOUND PROCEDURE?
Profound is a quick, single treatment performed at Skin Envy Austin, usually in 45 minutes or less. We will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers precise temperature treatments to deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy is being most beneficial.
Is Profound Better Than A Facelift?
It is important to know that Profound is not meant to replace a surgical facelift. We are targeting the lines and wrinkles in a different way than we do with surgery. It is best to think of this as a way to provide skin tightening and not a change to the facial anatomy.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE PROFOUND PROCEDURE?
The ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging, improved skin laxity, and combat cellulite.
IS THERE DOWNTIME WITH THE PROFOUND PROCEDURE?
Because the body is working to stimulate a natural healing process, the procedure may cause slight swelling or redness at the treatment site. There may also be slight bruising. These side effects should last no longer than a week.
Will I Be Able To Drive Myself Home After The Treatment?
We apply topical numbing cream and injection numbing, so yes you can drive yourself to and from your treatment. However, some patients may require an additional prescription to make them more comfortable. These patients will need to arrange transportation with a friend, family member, or someone they are comfortable with for after.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?*
The Profound procedure is usually done in one single treatment. Profound treatment had a 100% response rate with wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity in clinical trials. Results typically begin to show two weeks after the procedure, but most people see maximum results between three and nine months after the procedure.
WHAT IS THE COST OF PROFOUND?
Each patient will receive a quote at the end of their consultation which outlines the cost for their specific treatment. The treatment starts at $3000.

What makes Profound RF the right nonsurgical solution?
Many currently available radiofrequency devices offer real-time control of energy, but the Profound® system by Candela is the only FDA-cleared, long-pulse radiofrequency device that also offers real-time temperature control.3
The ability of the Profound® system to control temperature in real-time means that the wound healing process is more controlled. That leads to less likelihood of tissue damage4 and optimal production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid.5, 6
Up to 5x the elastin, up to 2x the collagen and increased hyaluronic acid is a reality with the Profound® treatment. Isn’t it time that you bring the snap back to aging skin?
So what matters most when considering this type of nonsurgical wrinkle reduction?
Consider a treatment that can create all three skin elements – elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid.
