Collagen. Elastin. Hyaluronic Acid. These super proteins are the main heroes in the continual quest to counteract the effects of aging. Collagen provides the structure matrix for the skin. Elastin works like a spring allowing tissue to stretch and contract. Hyaluronic acid bonds with water creating a cushion to keep tissues supple. Combining their forces, this trio performs a powerful action within the dermis to support to the skin with a force impossible to imagine or see with the naked eye. They are mighty and determined, shielding the skin with a virtual cape of vitality.
As we age, the body’s production of the super proteins decreases, diminishing the skin’s natural ability to retain fullness and firmness. That’s when we start to notice deep folds, loose skin, and sagging jowls. Our heroes need a boost. While injectables pack a punch in the battle to reverse aging, the latest skin-tightening technology in Profound RF? brings in the heavy reinforcements for 100% patient response after treatment. [*cue the cheers and trumpets*]
Profound RF, by Syneron Candela, functions as a non-surgical facelift alternative by using micro-needle electrodes to deliver radiofrequency energy into the deep reticular dermis. This thermal activity triggers a natural healing mechanism which produces new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. The Profound device can be used to refine nasolabial folds, fullness under the chin, jowls, and neck sagging, all with remarkable efficacy and improvement from one treatment. Ideal candidates for Profound are those who are not yet in need of a full surgical facelift but do seek the reduction of aging symptoms in the lower face and neck area.
Profound, an FDA-approved minimally invasive treatment, takes place in the office, under local anesthesia and without any surgical methods necessary. The treatment is safe and effective for both women and men of all skin types and ethnicity. While there is temporary redness, swelling, and bruising, this is mostly in the 48 hours after treatment and activities can be resumed in 3-5 days. In the weeks and months afterward, the new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid will develop and the optimal results will surface; bringing back the superpowers of a youthful glow.
