Let’s get real. There are a lot of perks that come with getting older—wisdom, maturity, more time to do what you love—but sometimes there are certain aspects of aging that maybe you are not yet ready for. As we age our skin loses elasticity due to decreased collagen and elastin production and we begin to see facial folds, baggy under-eyes and, well, an overall aged appearance.
Just because you are over fifty doesn’t mean you have to live with the physical effects of aging if you aren’t ready, and it certainly doesn’t mean that a facelift is your only option. There are plenty of less invasive procedures out there, and one such procedure commonly known as the “nonsurgical facelift” is changing the way people seek treatment for skin laxity. Profound® RF Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates your body’s natural ability to tighten and tone skin without the need for surgery.
How Profound® RF Skin Tightening works
Profound® RF Skin Tightening is a handheld device with multiple microneedles that uses radiofrequency waves and controlled heat to penetrate deep into the skin to activate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which all play an important role in keeping our skin looking and feeling supple and youthful. Topical numbing cream followed by a numbing injection is administered to your face beforehand to keep discomfort to a minimum. The end result of this minimally invasive procedure is a natural lift and volumizing of the skin around the face, chin and neck area.
Profound RF Skin Tightening can help:
- Restore skin volume
- Minimize Jowls and double chin
- Rejuvenate sagging skin
- Deep creasing
Profound also works well in conjunction with other treatments such as:
Recovery & Results
Since Profound is a minimally invasive you are free to resume normal activities within 24 hours following treatment. Immediately following Profound, your skin may appear pink, puffy or have slight bruising, but these side effects are temporary and should fade in 1 week of treatment. Over the course of the next several weeks to months, your skin should experience a rejuvenation; becoming firmer, tighter and toned, reducing the appearance of sagging and creasing. Many people experience these results with just 1 Profound treatment, but Dr. Harrington will work with you to decide to the best course of action to suit your needs. Both men and women who are experiencing sagging skin and loss of volume have benefited greatly from Profound RF Skin Tightening in as little as one treatment. If you are struggling with the loss of skin elasticity, Profound may be right for you.
