If you’ve been looking for a skin tightening treatment for a while, you may have noticed that there is no shortage of treatment options on the market for skin tightening; however, as to be expected, some work and some do not. That’s why when we were looking to add a skin tightening treatment to the service offering at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge we were very selective when looking at treatment systems. We decided on a new and innovative treatment that not only tightens the skin but also provide a lift of your lower face and neck without having to undergo surgery. At the Aesthetic Lounge, we are excited to now be offering patients one of the most cutting-edge facial rejuvenation treatment, Profound. Profound uses a unique combination of radiofrequency and micro-needling to provide patients with dramatic skin tightening without the use of injectables or surgery. Profound naturally boosts the body’s production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, for tighter, more lifted skin from the inside, out.
- Increases the body’s supply of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid
- Improve volume by naturally plumping tissues
- Treat fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity
- Lifts the lower face, jowls, and neck
This minimally invasive treatment utilizes concentrated RF waves to deliver energy through five pairs of micro-needle electrodes, introduced deep within the dermis, tiny injuries are created within the skin. These “micro-injuries” kick-start the body’s natural healing process. The skin’s healing response results in higher levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As the the skin heals, the restoration process will plump tissues, smooth wrinkles and fine lines for more lifted skin. One of the most unique characteristics of this treatment is that just one Profound treatment has been proven to improve skin laxity within a few months with results lasting up to 4 years.
Profound is a minimally invasive, radiofrequency microneedling treatment. Using five pairs of tiny needles, each fitted with a small electrode, concentrated radiofrequency energy is directed deep into the dermis, without causing any damage to the top layer of skin. Healing is rather quick, with the skin returning to normal in a few days.
First, a personalized Profound consultation will be arranged to determine if the treatment is right for you. Next, your treatment provider will apply a topical and local anesthetic for optimal comfort. The provider will then glide the hand piece across the treatment area, gently delivering custom-tailored pulses of energy. Each Profound session will last about 45 minutes, depending on the target area and desired level of correction.
Profound’s cutting-edge technology means that just one treatment can offer dramatic results. A major benefit to this treatment is that there is little downtime required after a Profound session. Most patients are back to their daily routine, including work or exercise, within 24 hours, but some swelling and bruising may last between 3-7 days.
