Are you looking for a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that can lift the skin and reduce wrinkles? Profound by Syneron Candela may be the treatment for you. It can give you the results of a facelift without needles or anesthesia, but how does the Profound procedure work to improve sagging facial skin.
What Is Profound?
Profound skin rejuvenation treatment uses radiofrequency along with microneedling, to tighten the skin and boost volume and elasticity. It works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, and increasing the levels of hyaluronic acid. The procedure takes about 45 minutes.
How Does Profound Improve Sagging Facial Skin
Sagging facial skin is typically caused by the decline in the natural supply of collagen and elastin, as a consequence of aging. Profound is able to improve aging skin, because it increases these key components that contribute to skin strength and elasticity.
Profound is an injectable laser, as it is equipped with 6 pairs of tiny needles that emit pulses of radiofrequency energy directly into the skin. The insertions are made about 3 mm apart. The heating energy penetrates the dermis and remodels collagen and elastin.
What To Expect
Downtime is minimal after Profound, and most patients are able to resume normal activities immediately. Improvements will continue to be seen for up to 6 months. Profound creates a significant tightening of the jawline, and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
