About Body Contouring
Stubborn fat and cellulite can be hard to eliminate through diet and exercise, and some patients may think that surgery is their only option. However, thanks to technological advances in the dermatology industry, we are able to provide nonsurgical body contouring at TruDerm. The Profound RF SubQ device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the dermis, which results in improved skin texture, fewer fat cells, and a more toned appearance. With little downtime and discomfort, you don't have to commit to an invasive procedure to achieve the slimmer contour that you desire. We invite you to contact our dermatology office today to learn more about the technology used during a Profound treatment.
You will be a good candidate for nonsurgical body contouring if you:
- Have stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks
- Have cellulite that you wish to reduce
- Have a desire for a nonsurgical solution
- Are at a healthy body weight and are not looking for a weight loss procedure
"I’ve been coming here since June for laser treatments and the entire team is great! Reneé does my appointments every time and she’s the best! She’s receptive and personable which makes it less awkward and more comfy. She’s super knowledgeable about dealing with deeper skin tones which was a major key for me. I’ve had barely any hair growth since I’ve started but I do get the occasional strays. Stephanie always calls me the day before my appointment to make sure I’m prepped which is great cause I forget. Belinda is on top of scheduling my next appointments ASAP. Overall very solid!"- F.C. / Google / Oct 19, 2018

During your nonsurgical body contouring procedure, the Profound handpiece that uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling electrodes will be emitted into the treatment areas. This procedure is usually administered to the abdominal area or lower body (thighs and buttocks). The process will increase collagen production, help target fat cells, and promote elastin and hyaluronic acid. A local anesthetic or numbing cream can be used to minimize any discomfort, but this should not produce pain as it does not require any incisions. Once complete, you will be cleared to return home.
What to Expect
There should be little downtime needed after a Profound RF SubQ procedure, though you may need to rest for a few hours to help alleviate any soreness or swelling that may occur. In general, patients can resume all normal activities, including going to work and exercising, after 24 hours. One session may be enough to produce you with the tighter, more toned skin that you desire, though we can administer more sessions if needed. You will need to give your body time to respond to the treatment and for new collagen production to begin processing. This can take anywhere between 3 – 6 months to complete, though some results may be visible sooner.
