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. All without surgery, fillers or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.
The Profound procedure
Each Profound session is performed in one of the private treatment rooms at the La Belle Vie MedSpa. A local anesthetic will be applied prior to treatment, for maximum patient comfort. The procedure will take less than an hour, depending on the area being treated and the extent of correction desired.
To begin, the provider will gently maneuver the Profound handpiece across the target area. Profound uses a small applicator, filled with a disposable cartridge made up of radiofrequency energy needles. As the small needles meticulously penetrate the target skin, heat from the energy will address deep layers of tissue. The warmth from the radiofrequency energy will then stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Only one Profound session is required for exceptional results. There is some downtime necessary after a Profound treatment. Patients can expect mild redness and swelling along the treatment area, although this normally resolves in three to five days. Bruising, and small red ‘dots’ are normal, as well.
The results from a Profound treatment are not immediately seen. Over the following weeks, as the body’s production of collagen and elastin are increased, the skin will become smoother, fuller, and firmer. Patients can begin to see initial improvements in as little as two weeks. The full benefits of Profound can continue to improve over the following six to nine months. The results of the treatment can last up to fours years.
I recently had a breast augmentation and lift done 3 months ago with Dr. Megan Dreveskracht at La belle Vie. From my consultation to my 3 month post op check both Dr and staff have been great! Front office super friendly, compassionate and personable. Clinical staff was friendly and thorough i felt safe and in good hands. I was extremely nervous since I had never had surgery before so I did not know what to expect but everyone made me feel super comfortable once I was in the operating room. Dr. Dreveskracht was amazing she answered all of my questions, checked in on me the same night as my surgery and was prompt in her responses to all of my texts and emails while I was in recovery. I am very happy with the outcome and cannot wait to see the end result when everything is done healing. Thank you La Belle Vie team!!!
Dr. Dreveskracht was amazing start to finish. She was so informative, warm, friendly and made me feel very comfortable going forward with the procedure. So much that I cancelled my other consultations because I knew she was the one I had to have. She even personally called to check up on me later that evening to make sure I was well. Highly recommend her to any of my friends.
I deeply value Dr. Dreveskracht’s expertise and down-to-earth personality.
