A Profound treatment takes a little over an hour. Some pain is involved but we will try to minimize it as much as possible with local anesthetics. We typically do an area the size of an 8 x 11 sheet of paper in a visit. Some larger treatment areas such as the thighs might require more than one visit to complete.
The Revolutionary One-Time Profound Treatment stimulates the deep layers of skin to replenish these 3 ingredients naturally resulting in a profoundly younger looking appearance that lasts for years.
The Profound treatment effectively combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to renew your skin from within. Profound’s microneedles are the perfect length to penetrate to deep skin levels. They are also heated to the perfect temperature. When applied to the skin, the combination of the depth of penetration and the heat “damage” the tissue in deeper layers of skin in order to elicit a natural healing response. Your body will produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to repair your skin. All three of these substances fill and tighten skin. Interestingly, hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in many fillers. Profound gets your body to make its own “filler” naturally. And even more amazing is the fact that the tightness and volume created by Profound is long lasting.
After the treatment, you should expect some swelling and tenderness and, possibly, some bruising. Plan to take it easy the rest of the day. Within 24 hours, you should be able to resume normal activities. Expect to experience swelling and bruising for about 3-5 days while your skin and underlying tissue is healing. You may also experience a little bumpiness for a few days. This is a natural reaction to the microneedle insertion points and will subside over the following few days. You may need to cover some redness with makeup for a few days. Over time, your body will heal itself producing more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. We recommend taking extra care of yourself with plenty of rest, extra water intake and eating healthy foods to speed up recovery time. You will continue to see improvements and positive results for many months after the procedure.
Most people see initial results within 6-8 weeks. As your body begins producing more collagen and elastin, you will continue to see more results within 4-6 months. Some patients report continued improvement after a year or more. There are a number of factors that can determine how long results will take to be noticeable such as health, age, genetics and how you care for your skin.
Profound is very different from injections of filler or Botox. With just one Profound treatment, the results can last for years. Profound promotes the natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy youthful skin over time. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results will take at least 3-6 months post treatment. Results are dependent on the amount of collagen and elastin already present in your skin. The Profound treatment takes existing collagen and elastin in the skin and enhances it up to 5 times. Results can vary depending on your health, age, genetics and how well you care for your skin before and after the procedure.
We recommend you discontinue the following medications 7 days prior to treatment to reduce bruising: aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Aleve), St. John’s Wort, Omega 3 fatty acids (Fish Oil), Vitamin E, Ginger, Ginkgo Biloba – Ginseng. We will discuss concerns with other over-the-counter medications and prescriptions during your initial consultation.
Because filler is an injection of primarily hyaluronic acid we recommend waiting for the filler to wear off before getting the Profound treatment. Our doctor will be able to address your specific timeframe during your initial consultation.
Elastin is a protein that lends elasticity and resilience to tissues throughout the body. It is particularly important for our skin, heart, lungs and other tissues to have elastin so they can expand and contract as we move, breathe and stretch. Elastin in the skin works together with collagen to provide structure and elasticity which keeps our skin smooth and firm. Over time and as we age our body naturally produces less and less elastin.
Since the Profound treatment is significantly less invasive than a facelift, so is the cost. And since every patient is different in the areas that need to be treated costs can vary from patient to patient. We invite you to schedule a free no-pressure consultation to see if a Profound treatment is right for you.
Yes! The Profound is FDA cleared to treat loose skin and cellulite.
Following the procedure, I now see no jowls whatsoever. I see a softening of what I call "tiger stripes" and a lessening of the folds around my mouth. It's one of the best procedures I have ever done.Clinical Trial Patient

We are excited to bring you Profound, a simple treatment with “profound” results. Profound is a non-surgical clinically-proven “facelift” that can erase deep lines and wrinkles and can dramatically lift and tighten skin in your face and in your neck. It is also great for cellulite and can be used on other areas of the body. Here at TimeLess Medical Spa, we have never seen a machine that can produce these kinds of results with just ONE treatment. Yes, you heard that right. Profound can dramatically reverse time and signs of aging in just one treatment. Scroll down to find out how.
For most of us our skin begins to lose its elasticity and gradually become more lose and wrinkled beginning in our 20s. Over time our body’s produce less and less of the components that keep us looking young: elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. The Profound treatment was designed to treat smaller and more bony parts of the face and neck. Once treated problem areas of the face and neck, such as loose jowls and marionette lines around the mouth, can be dramatically improved.
Not only does the Profound treatment improve lose and aging skin on the face but it also effectively treats dimpling of the skin – or cellulite. A slightly different handpiece is used to treat cellulite. The SubQ Profound handpiece is used and is inserted at a different angle effectively delivering fractional RF energy to the subcutaneous layer of tissue. Again this is a one-time treatment which studies have shown provides a 94% improvement in cellulite severity. Cellulite is reduced while the skin is also tightened. No other non-surgical procedure can do both as effectively as the Profound.
