When you look in the mirror, do you see wrinkles that weren’t there as recently as a week ago? Perhaps you see lines developing on your cheeks, creases on your upper lip, or deep ridges on your chin and neck.
Does it also seem like your face is sagging, and the sculptured jawline you once had has now turned into a jowl, accompanied by a double chin?
Has it affected your confidence, to the point where you feel uncomfortable being around people and at times don’t want to go out at all?
Do you just feel that your youthful glowing appearance is now gone?
If So, Don’t Despair…
You are not alone. In fact, around the age of 30, the body begins to produce less and less of the three main components which keep the skin looking youthful and healthy – Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid.
- Collagen is the protein that is responsible for maintaining structure in the skin
- Elastin is the protein that provides elasticity to the skin, allowing it to remain firm and taught after it has been stretched or poked
- Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin retain moisture and remain hydrated, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles and lines
The aging process of the skin begins when the rate at which the body breaks down the skin called catabolic activity, exceeds the rate at which the body restores the skin called anabolic activity. This result is a loss of dermal volume which leads to loose skin called laxity, and wrinkles. This is known as the aging process of the skin, and it happens to all of us.
Without proper treatment, this aging process will continue, as the production of naturally occurring Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid will continue to decline.
Profound Microneedling: A System Which Creates Collagen And Elastin
The good news is that this aging process can be reversed by using a cutting edge procedure, called Profound Microneedling. This treatment is clinically proven to stimulate the production of new elastin and collagen – restoring the youthful, healthy, and glowing skin you once had.
One treatment is all it takes to see a dramatic improvement in skin volume, elasticity, and overall strength of the skin. In fact, clinical studies have shown a 100% response rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity.
What Exactly Is The Profound Procedure?
Profound is a minimally invasive procedure where a group of microneedle electrodes are inserted into the skin, delivering heated radiofrequency energy deep into the reticular dermis. The reticular dermis is the lower layer of the dermis below the surface of the skin which consists of densely packed collagen and elastin fibers.
The electrodes are strategically positioned in the tissue being treated, and real-time feedback from the tissue is used to precisely create the desired level of thermal damage to the tissue. As a result, highly predictable clinical results can be achieved, since each treatment is customized to the patient’s unique skin response.
At the end of each treatment cycle, the electrodes are removed, and the Profound Microneedling device is repositioned and activated on the next treatment area.
Award Winning Technology
In 2018, Profound received the prestigious MyFaceMyBody Award for best New Treatment of the Year.
The MyFaceMyBody Award acknowledges innovation, customer excellence, and is the most highly recognized award in the industry. Receipt of this award confirms the positive outcomes so many patients are enjoying from the Profound procedure.
Winners are chosen by Consumer and Industry votes, providing reassurance that Medical and Clinical Professionals, as well as patients, are satisfied with the results delivered by the Profound treatment.
More About The Treatment?
The entire Profound treatment process is completed in one session which will generally last approximately 45 minutes. The patient is given a local anesthetic and experiences very little discomfort during the procedure.
Unlike a surgical facelift where patients encounter scarring, severe swelling, and a fairly lengthy recovery period, the Profound Microneedling procedure has very little downtime. Patients may experience up to 7 days of minor swelling, bruising, and redness, however, most patients resume normal activities within 24 hours.
What Types Of Aging Skin Issues Can Be Treated?
The Profound Microneedling procedure delivers exceptional results in three primary areas, lifting, contouring, and smoothing.
- Profound Lift is a procedure that focuses on restoring sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
- Profound Contour is a procedure that is ideal for re-sculpting the jawline and eliminating the double chin
- Profound Smooth reduces or eliminates wrinkles on the face in areas such as the cheeks, upper lip, around the mouth, and chin
Profound Rejuvenates And Revitalizes Skin At A Deeper Level
Most other treatments work only on the surface of the skin and focus solely on the collagen aspect, which results in texturing and smoothing improvements only. Profound, however, is the first injectable laser that can go to much greater depths.
The profound Microneedling System not only stimulates the production of collagen but also the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid as well. As a result, the Profound procedure delivers internal lifting, tightening, and textural improvements that are sustainable for a long period of time.
How Does Profound Rebuild Collagen, Elastin, And Hyaluronic Acid?
After the treatment is administered, skin cells release proteins called cytokines which induce the healing of wounds. Cytokines in turn attract large white blood cells called macrophages which are able to locate and remove the damaged tissue caused by the microneedling process.
Macrophages again release a new group of cytokines to attract fibroblasts to the site of the injury. Fibroblasts are the restorative cells that replace damaged heated tissue and are vital to the restoration of the skin back to a more youthful state.
As the healing process continues, the number of macrophages decrease, fibroblasts increase, and the body produces new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. In effect, the aging process of the skin is reversed, as a result of the anabolic, or restorative skin activity, now exceeding the catabolic, or destructive skin activity.
When Do The Results Become Visible?
Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production begins immediately and continues for a number of months. Visible results generally appear within 3 months and continue to improve for the next 3 – 6 months.
Because the Profound procedure bypasses the top later of the skin and delivers energy into deeper layers, the results have been reported to last as long as 3 years.
