Profound Body Lift
Profound Body is one of the most powerful minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure to target the bodily woes that most women (and some men) face – cellulite, stretch marks and saggy skin.
The lumpy and dimply skin appearance of cellulite is the result of fatty deposit, combined with weakening of the supportive septae where the fat resides in. Profound Body targets these causes with radiofrequency (RF) energy, delivered by its unique SubQ Cartridge. Fine microneedles effectively tighten the septae and coagulate the fat with RF waves. After a single session, smoothening of cellulite dimples is evident. The response rate reported is close to 100%. Areas that will benefit from Profound Body Lift are the thighs, buttocks, tummy and arms.
Apart from the deep SubQ Cartridge, Profound Contour Lift is powered by the superficial Dermal Cartridge and is ideal for sagging cheeks, jowls and neck. Using the Dermal Cartridge, RF energy is delivered into the skin, boosting the regeneration of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
A local anaesthetic (numbing) cream is applied to the treatment area. After the cream has taken effect, local anaesthetic solution is finely injected to ensure the entire treatment area, deep and superficial, is numb. The Profound device is then applied to the treatment area, using microneedles to deliver bipolar RF energy. Heat sensation is felt during the treatment
The treatment area will be swollen after the treatment due to the injected anaesthetic fluid and the heat from the RF energy. This swelling peaks at around 3 days before coming down again in the following 2-3 days. Antibiotic ointment for the skin and anti-swelling medications is prescribed.
You will find that cellulite and stretch marks are smoothed within a week, but this is mostly due to swelling. In the next few months, as collagen renews, the lasting improvement will be apparent within 3 to 6 months.
