Look years younger by creating younger, smoother looking skin. As our skin ages, we significantly reduce amounts of collagen and elastin. Though collagen and elastin fibers still do exist, they begin to become brittle and prone to breakage.
Since we live in the valley of the sun, we cannot avoid the UV radiation the sun gives off. The UV radiation from sun exposure causes further damage and breakdown of these collagen and elastin fibers along with our own bad habits, lifestyle, diet and heredity.
The loss of subcutaneous support are what contributes to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Profound RF microneedling provides a non-surgical alternative to addressing this aging and damaged skin, providing a long-lasting facial wrinkle reduction with just ONE treatment.
HOW DOES PROFOUND MICRONEEDLING WORK?
The area to be treated will involve cleansing and numbing the skin. Heat is then delivered deep into the dermal layer of the skin using microneedles and radio frequency energy. The heat causes trauma to the tissue causing the body to repair itself by increasing the production of collagen and elastin fibers. This increased production in collagen and elastin fibers leads to tightening and smoothing of the skin without damaging the surface of the skin.
Tighter smoother skin without the need for a surgical facelift. Profound RF Microneedling has 100% response rate for facial wrinkles. It is a one-time treatment with the effects that last years.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN?
Collagen and Elastin are the “gatekeepers” to younger looking skin in terms of structure and firmness.
- Collagen provides skin with strength and firmness. It is the most abundant protein found in the skin and as we age it disintegrates causing wrinkled skin.
- Elastin is the elasticity of the skin and gives skin its structure allowing skin to bounce back, stretch and expand. AS we age, elastin loses its firmness and tone and causes skin to sage.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Profound treatments promote the production of collagen and elastin. Most patient see an improvement within 2-3 months and continue to see additional improvements over the next 3-4 months. It takes time for collagen and elastin to develop, however lifestyle, habits and diet will also be a factor in your results and how long they will last.
After the procedure you should expect to see some bruising, swelling and/or redness. You may have pinpoint bleeding but these all can be camouflaged with makeup after 24-48 ours. You can resume normal activity within 1-2 days.
Down time is typically 3-5 days with some bruising and swelling. You may notice your skin looking bumpy for a few days, but those bumps will subside. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, get plenty of rest and eat healthy foods to help speed recovery.
Profound can be used to tighten face, neck and chest wrinkles as well as arms, legs and many other areas of the body where tighter skin may be desired.
