Profound RF Skin Tightening Houston
Profound is a radiofrequency treatment that tightens the skin but also creates more volume and elastic tissue especially in the area around the jowls and the wrinkles around the mouth. Profound stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, new collagen and elastin.
Good candidates for the Profound procedures are people who have sagging skin especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, as well as wrinkles along the upper lip. Profound is good for all skin types as the radiofrequency energy is color blind, allowing this to be a safe treatment for persons with Asian, Hispanic, African American and Indian skin.
Profound is usually one single treatment and is done under local anesthetic in the office setting.
Profound is a machine manufactured by Syneron utilizing a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed by the doctor on the areas of the skin to be treated. The needles penetrate in to the skin and release heat for a specific amount for time at a precise temperature and depth. This stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastin in that tissue.
Maximum treatment results are seen over a 6-9 month period, results are usually visible in as little as 2 weeks.
After the Profound treatment, you can expect 3-7 days of swelling and redness as well as bruising. In addition there is an appearance of tiny dotted marks on the treated areas and up to a week of some minor shedding of skin.
