We are excited to bring you Profound, a simple treatment with “profound” results. Profound is a non-surgical clinically-proven “facelift” that can erase deep lines and wrinkles and can dramatically lift and tighten skin in your face and in your neck. It is also great for cellulite and can be used on other areas of the body. Here at Trilogy, we have never seen a machine that can produce these kinds of results with just ONE treatment. Yes, you heard that right. Profound can dramatically reverse time and signs of aging in just one treatment. Scroll down to find out how.
Profound Lift – Treats sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck.
Profound Contour – Treats the jawline (double chin).
Profound Smooth – Treats the folds between the nose and cheek.
Profound Body – Treats cellulite.
With the Profound SubQ handpiece we treat cellulite typically on the thighs and buttocks (banana roll). At Trilogy we offer several options for fat and cellulite reduction through our diverse Trilogy Body Shop services such as Coolsculpting, Emsculpt and Cellutone Treatments. During your initial consultation we may recommend a combination of services for best results and to more effectively meet your goals.
A Profound treatment takes a little over an hour. Some pain is involved but we will try to minimize it as much as possible with local anesthetics. We typically do an area the size of an 8 x 11 sheet of paper in a visit. But don’t worry! We will get you good and numb before we begin the procedure. Some larger treatment areas such as the thighs might require more than one visit to complete.
After the treatment, you should expect some swelling and tenderness and possibly some bruising. Plan to take it easy the rest of the day. Within 24 hours, you should be able to resume normal activities. Expect to experience swelling and bruising for about 3-5 days and your skin and underlying tissue is healing. You may also experience a little bumpiness for a few days. This is a natural reaction to the microneedle insertion points and will subside over the following few days. You may need to cover some redness with makeup for a few days. Over time, your body will heal itself producing more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. We recommend taking extra care of yourself with plenty of rest, extra water intake and eating healthy foods to speed up recovery time. You will continue to see improvements and positive results for many months after the procedure.
Most people see initial results within 6-8 weeks. As your body produces more collagen and elastin, you will continue to see more results within 4-6 months. Some patients report continued improvement after a year or more. There are a number of factors that can determine how long results will take to be noticeable such as health, age, genetics and how you care for your skin.
Profound is very different from receiving injections of filler or Botox. With just one treatment the results last for years. The Profound treatment promotes the natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy youthful skin over time. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results will take at least 3-6 months post treatment. Results are dependent on the amount of collagen and elastin already present in your skin. The Profound treatment takes existing collagen and elastin in the skin and enhances it up to 5 times. Results can vary depending on your health, age, genetics and how well you care for your skin before and after the procedure.
We recommend you discontinue the following medications 7 days prior to treatment to reduce bruising: aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Aleve), St. John’s Wort, Omega 3 fatty acids (Fish Oil), Vitamin E, Ginger, Ginkgo Biloba – Ginseng. We will discuss concerns with other over-the-counter medications and prescriptions during your initial consultation.
Because filler is an injection of primarily hyarulonic acid we recommend waiting for the filler to wear off before getting the Profound treatment. Our master injectors will be able to address your specific timeframe during your initial consultation.
Elastin is a protein that lends elasticity and resilience to tissues throughout the body. It is particularly important for our skin, heart, lungs and other tissues to have elastin so they can expand and contract as we move, breath and stretch. Elastin in the skin works together with collagen to provide structure and elasticity which keeps our skin smooth and firm. Over time and as we age our body’s naturally produce less and less elastin.
Since the Profound treatment is significantly less invasive than a facelift, so is the cost. And since every patient is different in the areas that need to be treated costs can vary from patient to patient. We invite you to schedule a free no-pressure consultation to see if a Profound treatment fits your goals and your budget. We offer several options for in-house financing.
Yes! The Profound is FDA cleared to treat loose skin and cellulite.
The Profound skin-tightening treatment is an energy-based treatment that produces a 100% response rate to facial wrinkles and a 94% improvement in cellulite reduction with just one treatment. The results are younger, smoother-looking skin that lasts for years not months.
If you’re considering a surgical facelift you will want to look into the Profound skin-tightening treatment first. Profound is a one-time treatment that can have the same dramatic results as a facelift with only days of recovery instead of weeks or months.
The treatment awakens your skin’s own natural healing process while stimulating the natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid creating firm, smooth and younger-looking skin. Results continue to improve for months and one treatment can last for years.
I have been coming to Trilogy Medical Center for a long time. Shauna is by far the best injector Trilogy has had! She is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of her job.
Trilogy Medical Spa is hands-down the best med-spa in Utah. I had a membership to another med-spa when I found Trilogy and was extremely loyal to my dermatologist for all of my injecting needs (lips, Botox, etc). There’s just something different about Trilogy…. I’ve had facials, PRP, and injections all done at Trilogy and they’re now my one-stop shop for all of my med-spa needs.
Dr. Kat and the rest of the staff were super friendly, helpful, and professional. The consultation was great and I never felt like anyone was pressuring me to do things I wasn’t comfortable with.
I was thoroughly impressed by the staff the range of services they offer and the passion that Dr. Kat has for women’s health. What a fabulous place to feel better from head to toe!
For most of us our skin begins to lose its elasticity and gradually become more lose and wrinkled beginning in our 20s. Over time our body’s produce less and less of the components that keep us looking young: elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. The Profound treatment was designed to treat smaller and more bony parts of the face and neck. Once treated problem areas of the face and neck, such as loose jowls and marionette lines around the mouth, can be dramatically improved.
Not only does the Profound treatment improve lose and aging skin on the face but it also effectively treats dimpling of the skin – or cellulite. A slightly different handpiece is used to treat cellulite. The SubQ Profound handpiece is used and is inserted at a different angle effectively delivering fractional RF energy to the subcutaneous layer of tissue. Again this is a one-time treatment which studies have shown provides a 94% improvement in cellulite severity. Cellulite is reduced while the skin is also tightened. No other non-surgical procedure can do both as effectively as the Profound.
The Profound treatment effectively combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to renew your skin from within. Profound’s microneedles are the perfect length to penetrate to deep skin levels. They are also heated to the perfect temperature. When applied to the skin, the combination of the depth of penetration and the heat “damage” the tissue in deeper layers of skin in order to elicit a natural healing response. Your body will produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to repair your skin. All three of these substances fill and tighten skin. Interestingly, hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in many fillers. Profound gets your body to make its own “filler” naturally. And even more amazing is the fact that the tightness and volume created by Profound is long lasting.
Watch as the Profound Treatment is explained. With the power of heat applied at the right depth for the right amount of time, the Profound treatment stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These building blocks of youth are recreated naturally to reverse the signs of aging. Studies have shown a 100% response rate. What this means is that every single test subject showed improvement with one treatment. While results will vary from person to person, patients are reporting continued improvement over time.
The Profound Treatment is a safe and effective way to improve, or in many cases erase signs of aging. However, Profound may not be for everyone. The only way to know if Profound is right for you is to consult with one of our master injectors and discuss your concerns and goals.
