Profound Skin Treatment in Pittsburgh

Acqua Blu Medical Spa presents Profound treatment, a process that will tighten skin to give you a more youthful appearance.

What is Profound?

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. This is all without surgery, fillers, or toxins. Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.

What is the effect of a lack of elastin and collagen as we age?

Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in the body – like your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs, and many other tissues elastic so that they can get snap back into shape after stretching or contracting. This material provides elasticity and collagen (another protein in your skin), which in turn provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm.


How does Profound create younger skin?

Starting in our mid-20s, elastin starts to break down, becoming less elastic and losing its spring: think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil. Profound is a clinically proven treatment that builds elastin and collagen. By using a process called MicroNeedling, we carefully heat the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time. This leads to the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin. We offer three treatments:

  • Profound Lift: To treat sagging face and loose skin under the neck.
  • Profound Contour: To define the jawline.
  • Profound Smooth: To treat other areas of loose skin on the body, including cellulite.
