PROFOUND RF TREATMENT LONDON
Masterfully rebuild the skin matrix.
Up to 5x more elastin, up to 2x more collagen, and increased hyaluronic acid.
It happens to everyone. As we age our collagen levels decrease, elastin production stops, and hyaluronic acid diminishes. These three skin fundamentals are important in keeping our skin strong, elastic, and flexible. When their levels drop, facial wrinkles may appear.
So it’s no surprise that you are starting to see signs of wrinkles and feeling less confident. But you can do something about it.
The Profound treatment is a single, nonsurgical solution that reduces facial wrinkles and rejuvenates your skin
Profound Lift – to treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
Profound Contour – to define the jawline (double chins)
Profound Smooth – to treat the folds between the nose and cheek
Collagen builds the structure of the skin and is important to hold tissue together. Fine lines and wrinkles are created due to the breakdown of collagen.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural volumiser to keep skin plump and hydrated which stabilises the skin structure.
Elastin is your skin’s best kept secret, the under appreciated molecule. It is responsible for the dynamic properties of the skin and ability to retract back into place after a deformation. The Elastic in your skin can stretch up to 8 times without breaking.
This treatment will be delivered by our in house doctor, Dr Dianni Dai.

Profound RF FAQ's
What is Profound?
Profound is a revolutionary new energy-based facial treatment designed to create new elastin, collagen
and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. Without surgery, fillers
or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin.
Before your Profound treatment?
Hydrate – we recommend that for seven days pre-treatment you moisturize skin in the morning and evening, and drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to completely hydrate your skin and optimize treatment results.
You may be provided an antiviral prophylaxis 1 day prior to the Profound treatment and to continue after the treatment
Topical retinoid therapy should be discontinued 3-4 days prior to treatment.
Avoid any prolonged exposure to the sun, if you must be in the sun use a zinc oxide sunscreen of at least SPF 30+.
Remove all substances from the intended treatment area, including topical anaesthetics, hairspray, gel, makeup, lotions, deodorants, self-tanning products and ointments. Do not use flammable products in the vicinity of the Profound device.
Is there any downtime?
After the treatment, you can resume normal activities but there may be some redness, swelling and bruising which may last up to 7 days.
How many treatments will you need?
Profound RF is a one-off treatment and results can be seen from 1 treatment.
Is it painful?
The treatment will feel uncomfortable as the needles are inserted into the skin and held. A pain relief can be used before treatment and discussed at your consultation.
Who is the ideal client for Profound?
Profound is a completely customisable and minimally invasive treatment suitable for women and men who wish to target the key signs of aging and cellulite on the body. The ideal patient is someone who suffers from loss of vital skin elements due to genetics, maturation, and other environmental factors resulting in overall volume reduction, wrinkles, and decreased elasticity. This is a procedure for patients who are looking to increase volume in the treatment area with minimal downtime.
What is Elastin?
Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in the
body - like your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs and many other tissues elastic so
that they can get snap back into shape after stretching or contracting.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately post treatment the treated area will appear swollen and red. Pin-point bleeding from microneedle insertions will be observed and bruising may be noticed. Immediately following treatment, ice compress should be used for the first 45 minutes. For next 24 hours, continue with cold compress at 20 minutes on - 20 minutes off intervals.
How do you build new elastin?
Elastin is normally no longer made after puberty and ageing begins. In order to build new elastin, you
need to cause a certain amount of damage to the skin by heating for example, so that the elastin starts
to break down. Then a healing process can begin to build new elastin.
What is the best method to build elastin and collagen?
Profound is clinically proved* to build elastin. 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 ageing skin.
