Profound skin tightening treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses microneedling and radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin, improve fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Suitable for all skin types, it requires little downtime, and is ideal for those with mild to moderate skin laxity and loss of skin volume.
As our bodies begin to run low on the vital nutrients responsible for firm and supple skin, we begin to notice the standard effects of aging. These effects can include an increase in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as loose skin on the face and jowls, among other areas. Many patients resort to surgical facelifts, unaware that there are other promising solutions. Profound nonsurgical skin tightening technology is used to perform what we call the Profound facelift, a nonsurgical radiofrequency energy-based procedure that firms the skin from beneath the surface. The technology stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to firm and smooth your skin, producing a rejuvenated appearance.
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the affected areas may feel mildly numb, red, or swollen. These symptoms are normal and should resolve on their own within 7-14 days. During your initial consultation, we will go over instructions on caring for your skin at home after your treatment, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a slow process, you can see the full results of your procedure around 2-6 months after the session. However, these results should last a long time and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may require several sessions to attain your cosmetic goals. During your complimentary consultation, our medical team will help you create a custom treatment plan that addresses your concerns and goals.
To begin the process, the medical provider thoroughly cleans the treatment areas to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. If requested, we can apply a topical anesthetic for numbing, but many patients find that any mild discomfort from the treatment is short-lived and easily tolerated. The energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce elastin and collagen, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take anywhere from 90-120 minutes based on the size and number of areas being treated. After the session is complete, you can leave and resume your daily activities.
Surgery for skin tightening or “lift” procedures, like a face or body lift, are still the most effective option to improve loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening is a good option if you do not wish to have plastic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be done on most areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, arms, and thighs. The ideal patients for this treatment:
- Are in good health
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have light to medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have lines or wrinkles on the body or face
- Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin
