Profound Skin Tightening
Profound™ is a new facial treatment that increases elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, all important components of youthful skin. This treatment delivers radiofrequency energy into the deeper levels of the skin with multiple tiny needles (microneedles), resulting in the improved appearance of nasolabial folds, sagging jowls, marionette lines, lines around the upper and lower lips, and loose skin under the neck. By tightening the skin of the lower face, the cheeks will also look fuller and more youthful.
How long will the procedure take?
Profound is a procedure that is done by Dr. Aboutanos in the office with use of a topical numbing cream and injection of local anesthesia. The procedure can take 60-90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Where will the incisions be?
There are no incisions! Profound is a cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that can provide facelift-type results without the scars, anesthesia or down-time.
What will recovery be like?
Swelling and bruising will be present for about 1 week. It is important to keep the skin moisturized and to avoid sun exposure during the healing period. Improved skin appearance can be seen as early as 1 month but final results may not be visible until 10-12 months after the procedure. These results last for years as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
