What is Profound non-surgical skin tightening?
Profound treatments represent non-laser energy applied into and through the skin for the purpose of skin tightening. The energy delivered with these devices tightens skin tissue at varied levels as well as associated improvement in age-induced volume loss.
How does Profound work?
Profound stimulates the renewal of new collagen and elastin through the use of radiofrequency technology. This technology heats the collagen and elastin layers of the skin to help tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin. This process results in the following benefits:
- Reduces sagging
- Improves the smoothness of the skin
- Smoothens skin texture
- Improves facial volume loss
The result is subtle, natural-looking results that can last years. Unlike traditional energy-based alternatives in which results are directed toward skin tightening, the Profound approach breaks new ground as the only aesthetic procedure to achieve three-dimensional improvement in the quality, topography, and volume of the skin.
What is the Profound skin tightening technique?
Based on the pioneering research performed by Dr. David Goldberg and several other internationally recognized laser centers, it has become clear that the Profound technique not only produces the new collagen seen with many non-invasive approaches, but also uniquely creates new elastin.
The Profound procedure works by delivering bi-polar radiofrequency energy directly into the dermal skin tissue using insulated microneedles. The needles are insulated up to the tip to ensure that the energy is only delivered where it needs to be, bypassing thermal energy to skin’s surface. Those who wish to forestall a surgical facelift while improving age-associated volume loss can accomplish this with a minimal downtime procedure.
Treatment is undertaken, and a patient returns to normal daily activities after 3-5 days. These pioneering new technologies are not meant to replace a more aggressive surgical procedure. They are the ideal alternative for the middle-aged person who is seeing some jowls, hanging skin on their neck and facial volume loss. Periodic touch-up procedures are required
