Wrinkles, lines and loose skin are not like other cosmetic skin concerns. They cannot be easily concealed, and they can be incredibly tough to get rid of without the use of surgery. Fortunately, at Atlanta Aesthetics, we offer a minimally invasive skin tightening solution called Profound. With this treatment, patients can eliminate wrinkles to achieve a smoother, younger appearance. Here’s what you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.
What is Profound Skin Tightening?
Profound is a non-surgical skin tightening solution that can be used to address wrinkles and sagging skin around the mouth, jowls, and cheeks. This facelift alternative combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. During treatment, small needles are inserted into the skin, where they release radiofrequency energy to cause the skin to contract and produce collagen. The procedure takes between 45 and 90 minutes, after which patients are able to drive themselves home and return to their daily activities.
What Can I Expect After Profound Skin Tightening?
The Profound treatment is becoming a popular alternative to traditional facelift procedures because it involves no surgery, meaning no lengthy recovery period. Patients can expect some mild redness and bruising, but these effects typically fade within a week of treatment. Patients will begin to notice results as collagen and elastin increase in the body and start enhancing the skin. Most patients start to notice results about two weeks after treatments, enjoying continued improvements in skin laxity for up to a year. After this point, patients can expect their skin to maintain these improvements for a few years. However, the skin will continue to undergo gradual changes due to the natural aging process, and can also be impacted by your diet and other lifestyle habits.
Am I A Good Candidate for Profound Skin Tightening?
If you have developed wrinkles or loose skin in the lower or mid face, you may be a good candidate for Profound. Many patients are choosing Profound to rejuvenate the face because it involves significantly less downtime than a facelift, and is also more affordable. If you schedule a consultation at Atlanta Aesthetics, we can review your cosmetic goals to develop a customized Profound treatment plan. We offer Profound skin tightening to residents of Forsyth County, Atlanta and the surrounding areas of Georgia. Contact us today to get started.
