Have you found yourself wishing for a longer neckline, a sculpted jawline, or more youthful and defined facial contours? If so, you’ll want to learn more about the many benefits of Profound.
How our skin agesOur bodies stop producing Elastin sometime in our early to mid-20s. Elastin, along with collagen, is one of the building blocks that keeps the skin smooth and firm. As we get older, the elastin fibers break down, losing their spring and ability to keep the structure of the skin intact. The result is loose, sagging skin.
In order to stimulate elastin production in the body, there needs to be disruption or damage to the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process and promote new elastin.
The Profound SolutionProfound is a quick, single-treatment procedure that carefully heats the skin’s elastin and collagen to stimulate new growth and repair aging skin.
During the procedure, a bi-polar radiofrequency device will deliver energy to the precisely targeted deep layers of skin. Local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort, while the physician is able to control temperatures for predictable results.
Profound treatments can be used to address the signs of aging on the mid to lower face and around the neck. It is effective in improving mid-face volume, eliminating double chins, recontouring the jawline and tightening loose skin on the neck.
Most patients notice marked improvement in the appearance of the skin anywhere from 6-8 weeks after treatment. Gradual improvements will continue for 3-6 months as the body continues to build new collagen and elastin.
