Profound™ Skin Tightening
Over the years, fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and skin laxity have long been treated with laser therapies and other devices with varying results. Lax skin on the face, neck, and body is frequently treated with plastic surgery. Many believe that issues like jowling and skin laxity of the neck can only be treated with a surgical facelift or necklift, which can produce a very nice result, but what about patients who don’t require surgery or would prefer a less invasive approach? Profound™, a radiofrequency microneedling device from Syneron Candela®, offers an exciting new option for skin tightening and nonsurgical facelift for our Spokane and Coeur d’Alene patients. Profound™ treatments can create impressive, custom-tailored results that lift and volumize faces; smooth jawlines; contour the abdomen, arms, and legs; and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The Basics of Profound
The Profound device couples radiofrequency energy with a microneedling delivery system to the deep layer of the skin that stimulates the development of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid—the indispensable building blocks of skin! Although these ingredients occur naturally in our bodies, their production slows as we age and elastin starts to break down…thus becoming less elastic and losing its spring. This leads to laxity, wrinkles, loss of volume, and a general reduction in skin’s quality. Profound reinvigorates your skin’s production of these ingredients, and reduces small fat deposits, for overall improvement.
For the Face
While Profound cannot replace a surgical facelift or neck lift, it can be an excellent choice for people who do not need surgery or are looking for an alternative. It provides noticeable facial rejuvenation by addressing:
- Laxity and loss of volume along the lower face, jawline, and neck
- Lines, wrinkles, and other textural irregularities throughout the lower face
- Pockets of fat that form a double chin
For the Body
Profound makes an excellent alternative to plastic surgery for people who want to avoid scarring and lengthy downtime. It can address a variety of concerns on the body including:
- Sagging skin on the abdomen, arms, and legs
- Fine lines and redness on the décolletage
- Cellulite on the thighs, knee area, and buttocks
- Stretch marks
- Subcutaneous fat
While Profound can create impressive results, some patients may be better suited for different procedures, such as a liquid facelift, microneedling, or Smartlipo. Profound can also be used in combination with these procedures and PRP (platelet rich plasma) to achieve superior results.
Dr. Kevin Johnson
Welcome to Advanced Aesthetics. Throughout my years serving the body contouring and facial rejuvenation needs of people in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, I’ve learned a lot—including how to meet my patients where they are. If you’re like most of our guests, you’re busy, you want to address a specific concern, but you might not know where to begin. We’re ready to help.Meet Dr. Kevin Johnson
Your Profound treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure in our office. We apply a light local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. When administered to either the deep dermis or subcutaneous layer, the procedure delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper supportive structures of the skin through pairs of fine insulated microneedles. These microneedles are inserted into the anesthetized skin. You may feel a sensation of warmth or tingling as the treatment is performed but it should not hurt. You may experience some mild to moderate bruising and swelling for 5 days after the procedure. There is not much maintenance for the patient to perform during recovery. In a clinical study and also in our experience in our practice 100% of patients responded to the treatment, reporting rejuvenated tighter skin as early as 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure and continued improvement for the next year. The Profound treatment in our opinion is the best skin tightening device on the market right now.
Dr. Johnson and the team at Advanced Aesthetics look forward to working with you. Please request your consultation online or call us at (208) 518-0675 to schedule your appointment.
