Eliminate Unsightly Cellulite With Profound

What is Cellulite? How can I get rid of it?

Well, look no further than Profound RF, a completely natural treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite affects 80-90% of women at some point in their life, causing the appearance of uneven textured, dimpling, and bumpy skin. Cellulite is mostly predominant on the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, and hips. Genetics can also predispose even the most well-toned athlete to having cellulite.

If you are like many people who want to improve the appearance of cellulite, you have probably tried a variety of remedies such as topical creams, diets, massage, only to find out that nothing works in the long term. That is nothing until now. VIVAA offers an effective non-surgical & minimally invasive procedure called Profound RF that treats cellulite at its source by strengthening the fibers that support the skin.

There are many factors that can account for the appearance of cellulite: from genetics and hormones, to diet and exercise. No matter what the cause, here’s what’s happening in your body:

• FAT CELLS accumulate under the skin. This is called subcutaneous fat, and it is resistant to diet and exercise.

• FIBROUS CORDS are elastin that attach the skin to the muscle underneath. When the fat cells enlarge, the fibrous cords are weakened

• DIMPLING occurs when the fibrous cords are stretched and weakened. This allows the fat cells to gather closer to the skin and lead to bumpy effect we associate with cellulite.

As we age, the appearance of cellulite increases as skin becomes thinner, weaker, and less elastic. Degradation of collagen and elastin reduces skin firmness and cause cellulite to become more visible. In fact, almost 90% of women have cellulite and there is no escaping it.

Grades of Cellulite

Cellulite has three grades based on severity:

• Grade 1, mild: Dimpling when pressure is applied

• Grade 2, moderate: Dimpling is visible when standing, but not when lying down

• Grade 3, severe: Dimpling while both when standing and lying down

How Does Profound Treat Cellulite?

Ultherapy VS Profound

VIVAA is discontinuing its Ultherapy treatments as we have found the Profound is more successful and rewarding. While Ultherapy shows an approximate 75% success rate for skin tightening, Profound has a 100% success rate. In addition, the profound results are longer lasting.

The Profound treatment offers you a nonsurgical alternative for improving the appearance of cellulite. Profound is an FDA-approved device that combines radiofrequency and microneedling that have been clinically proven to deliver energy directly to the subcutaneous layers. This thermal activity stimulates dissolution of adipose fat tissue while revitalizing the septae, the fibrous bands that cause cellulite’s lumpy appearance. RF energy triggers the body’s natural healing process to produce new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, which further help skin to look smoother. In the cellulite study design, 94% of patients showed an improvement in cellulite appearance at 3 months post-treatment.

Preparing for the Profound RF Treatment

Before your comprehensive treatment, we will ask you to stop smoking and refrain from using antihistamines and NSAIDS to promote a healthy recovery and reduce procedure symptoms. We recommend you wear loose clothing in the areas where you get your Profound treatment. Follow all pretreatment instructions to ensure a positive experience.pre-trtmt and 1 year post-trtmt.What to Expect During Treatment

Before treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes and then the provider will inject numbing medication. Once the numbing  injections take effect, your VIVAA provider will use the Profound RF device to diligently and effectively treat the defined area for cellulite, which can take up to two hours.

Recovery and Results

You can return to regular activity immediately following this minimally invasive procedure. You can expect mild bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treatment area, which can last up to 10 to 14 days. The Profound procedure works within several months and results in complete cellulite improvement approximately six to nine months after your cellulite treatment. A healthy diet and lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight are also effective in making cellulite less noticeable. Generally, one treatment is required to notice significant improvement, but a second treatment may be recommended by your provider depending on the severity of the cellulite.

Am I a Good Candidate for Profound Treatments?

You should be in good health with realistic expectations about your results. Anyone who wants to improve the tone and texture of their skin is a good candidate. Your board-certified VIVAA professional will review your area of concern at the consultation and ensure that you are an excellent candidate to proceed with this treatment. Depending on your needs, your personalized treatment plan may include other products and procedures such as CoolSculpting & CoolTone to improve the look and care of your body and skin.


Will Profound make my inner and outer thighs slimmer?

No. Profound does not contour your body. Those who want slim thighs should consider body contouring using CoolSculpting and/or CoolTone.

Will Profound help with loose and saggy skin?

Yes! Profound treatment is the only radiofrequency microneedling treatment that stimulates and triggers the creation of the skin's elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid – the three fundamentals for smooth, youthful-looking skin.

What is elastin, and how do you build it?

Elastin works together with collagen to keep your skin smooth and firm. Starting in our mid-20s, elastin breaks down, making skin less elastic. The body no longer makes elastin after puberty, resulting in aging skin. Profound cellulite treatment is the best method to build elastin and collagen.
