Although the signs of aging appear very gradually and slowly, you may find yourself looking in the mirror and suddenly noticing fine lines and wrinkles and loose skin that weren’t there before.  Profound skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that can help rejuvenate your skin and restore a more youthful appearance.

How Does Profound Skin Tightening Work?

Profound is an advanced cosmetic treatment that combines micro-needling and radiofrequency energy.  It can help with sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.  A handheld device is used to create tiny punctures in the skin while delivering RF energy  This treatment stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which improve tightness and texture over time.

The treatment can be customized to your specific skin concerns by adjusting the depth of the needles and the intensity of the RF energy.  

Profound skin tightening can treat:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms  

A topical anesthetic may be used during your treatment to help with any mild discomfort you experience.  After your procedure, your skin may be tender and red, similar to having a sunburn.  But downtime is minimal and you’ll be back to regular activities within a few days.  

Profound Results

Because Profound skin tightening is non-surgical, results will be gradual and natural looking.  You’ll see significant improvement in skin texture and tightening without the “pulled back” look that can result from surgery.  You will continue to see improvement for about a year following your treatment and the results are long-lasting.
