What does Profound do?

The effect of a lack of elastin and collagen as we age:

Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down, becoming less elastin and losing its spring. think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil.

What is the best method to build elastin and collagen?

Profound is a clinically-proven* treatment that builds elastin and collagen. 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 aging skin.

What is the Profound procedure like?

Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in a physician’s office, usually in 45 minutes or less. Your doctor will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers precise temperatures to the deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy being delivered is most beneficial.

Patient Testimonial:
“Recently I visited Dr. Paul Kim to discuss what procedures I could consider for my face and neck. I was not interested in a traditional facelift due to the downtime. He suggested a new treatment called Profound. As he shared his enthusiasm and details about Profound I opted to have it done. It was a very positive experience including the amount of discomfort involved. I was able to put makeup on after two days, go back to work, and resume my normal activities. I can’t believe the difference in the texture of my skin after just 3 weeks. Dr. Kim said I would start to notice a tightening of my skin starting at 5 weeks along with collagen production. I have had so many people comment on my skin and I am only on week 4. I had some swelling for a couple of days and bruising that was easily covered with makeup. I highly recommend Profound and look forward to the next few weeks as I am already amazed with the difference in my face. Thank you Dr Kim for including the latest state of the art treatments in your highly recommended practice.”
