Profound Contour Lift is the ideal non-surgical treatment for sagging cheeks, jowls and neck wrinkles, targeting elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA), the basic building blocks of our skin. Although abundant in our youth, collagen and HA levels plummet with age, and our bodies cease to produce elastin as early as in our 20’s!

Profound Contour Lift uses fine micro-needles to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin, boosting the regeneration of collagen, elastin and HA. Profound RF is the first and only device clinically proven to CREATE elastin, collagen and HA. . Ideal for sagging cheeks, jowls and neck wrinkles, results from this minimally-invasive treatment is superior and longer-lasting compared to non-invasive techniques. Profound RF is a famed alternative to a face lift, with research documented 100% response rate and 2.6 years younger skin.

Apart from the superficial Dermal cartridge, the Profound SubQ cartridge delivers more aggressive tightening and fat melting at a deeper level, ideal for erasing double chin and smoothening cellulite.

The procedure:

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, using microneedles to deliver bipolar RF energy into the tissues. Heat sensation is felt during the treatment.


The downtime for Profound RF is around 5-7 days. 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 skin is lifted, with improvement in skin quality and wrinkles within a week, but this is mostly due to swelling. In the next few months, as collagen, elastin and HA renews, the lasting improvement in your skin will be apparent within 3 to 6 months. Profound treatment is recommend every 18 months for continued skin rejuvenation.
