Profound RF Microneedling
Profound is a cutting-edge treatment designed to reduce skin sagging in undesirable areas. The treatment is used to target many locations around the body, but is most administered to the face, jawline, and neck. As an advanced laser and skin rejuvenation treatment, Profound takes advantage of an energy-based technology to accomplish a minimally invasive procedure that drastically reduces wrinkles and improves skin laxity in these areas. A handheld microneedling with radiofrequency device releases precise and accurate energy at the proper depth and temperature. The procedure is clinically proven to recreate up to 5 x elastin, 2 x collagen, and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks of healthy, younger looking skin.
Elastin is the rubber band of the human body, helping tissue “snap back” into shape when it is stretched. It allows skin to return to its original position when it is poked or pinched. Elastin productions stops as we age, contributing to sagging skin. Collagen, another main component of skin tightness, is the glue that holds us all together. As we age, fewer collagen cells are replaced causing degradation to the surface of the skin. Since it is the main structural protein in the skin, you will really notice the effect of collagen’s slowed growth with visible wrinkles and folds.
You need elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to create smooth, younger-looking skin. The Profound treatment creates all three: new elastin to bring the snap back to aging skin, new collagen to revitalize your skin, and increased hyaluronic acid.
A picture is worth a thousand words. See for yourself how a single, nonsurgical Profound treatment works to create smooth, younger-looking skin for these patients.
