WHAT IS PROFOUND® SKIN TIGHTENING?
Profound® skin tightening is a non-surgical facelift that utilizes radiofrequency energy to firm loose skin while creating more volume and elastic tissue. Profound® stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Profound® technology uses a hand piece with a throwaway cartridge. This cartridge contains radiofrequency energy needles. When the needles penetrate the skin, they release heat at a precise depth and temperature to encourage the formation of new collagen and elastic tissue.*
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROFOUND® SKIN TIGHTENING?*
The Profound® procedure offers many benefits compared to a surgical facelift, such as:
- Non-surgical procedure
- Can achieve smoother-looking skin
- Reduces wrinkles and sagging skin
- Lasts between forty-five and ninety minutes
- Uses local anesthesia, which allows patients to drive themselves to and from our office
- Recovery is easy and quick
- No suture removal or wound care
- Results can be seen as soon as two weeks and should improve over ten to twelve months
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR SKIN TIGHTENING?
Ideal candidates for the Profound® procedure include patients with sagging skin, wrinkles, or loss of volume around the mouth, jowls, or cheeks. The radiofrequency energy is safe for all skin types. However, if you are pregnant, have a history of skin healing issues, or have a pacemaker, the Profound® procedure is not recommended.*
HOW IS PROFOUND® SKIN TIGHTENING PERFORMED?
Profound® skin tightening is usually performed with one treatment in our office. Local anesthesia is administered to the problem areas you want to be treated. Once the treatment area is numb, Dr. Killingsworth will apply the hand piece and deploy the microneedles. Once the needles are in place, the electrodes are activated. Dr. Killingsworth will repeat this process over the entire area until everything has been treated. The procedure takes between forty-five and ninety minutes, and you can drive home or continue your daily activities afterward. Results are typically visible within a few weeks and should continue to improve for another ten to twelve months.*
