Profound (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.
Good candidates for the Profound procedure are people who have sagging skin, especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, as well as upper lip wrinkles. Profound is good for all skin types as the radio frequency energy is color-blind, allowing this to be a safe treatment for persons with Asian, Hispanic, African-American or Indian skin.
