Struggling with sagging skin around the face? A Profound RF treatment from Dr. Kenneth Jesser at the Vein Specialists Institute can help reduce these signs of aging. Contact us today to learn more about Profound RF and the various skin rejuvenation treatments we offer.
Profound is a new device that uses radiofrequency needles and is the next step in non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It regenerates your collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. It is used mostly in the face and neck rejuvenation, but can also be used elsewhere on the body. By regenerating these three elements of your skin, Profound uniquely creates a combination of lifting, tightening, smoothing and volumizing.
In essence, Profound combines the best elements of laser resurfacing and non-invasive lifting. It can smooth wrinkles as well as acne scars. It can reduce jowls and turkey necks. By generating hyaluronic acid — used for fillers — it can specifically volumize parts of your face and possibly create a more youthful look. The treatment is appropriate for both women and men. Because it is radiofrequency and goes deeper into the skin, it is appropriate for some individuals with darker skin. Profound’s precision is computer controlled which increases its effectiveness.
Profound usually requires one and occasionally two treatments. It is performed with local anesthesia. The treatment takes one hour.
There is downtime with Profound. You may have mild redness for 24 hours. You may also have some bruising. Post-procedure discomfort is minimal for most patients. The most common post-procedure symptom is swelling. Depending on the individual, this swelling can last 7-10 days.
Though results maybe seen in as little as two weeks, the results are gradual, and the full effect may take up to six months. The lifting and tightening may last for at least 2 years, though the smoothing and volumization may last longer.
