Profound Skin Tightening
One of the first signs of aging is a change in the tightness and elasticity of the skin. As you get older, the structure of the skin changes. It loses its elasticity and volume, resulting in looser, thinner skin that is prone to lines, wrinkles and sagging. What if you could turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate your skin to a more youthful appearance? At The K Spa, we offer Profound skin treatments that can improve the youthfulness of your skin in just one outpatient procedure.
Aging of the face and neck begin in the skin. As you age, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, the components that help it stay toned and tightened. The skin becomes thinner and stretches; it may begin to slightly sag on your cheeks, jowls and neck. Surgical facelifts are designed to lift sagging skin and tissue, but there are non-surgical options for those in the early stages of loosening skin. Profound skin tightening is one of the more effective procedures to combat skin aging, offering a non-invasive option for improving the health and beauty of the skin.
What Is Profound Skin Treatment?
To improve the youthfulness of skin that has begun to lose its elasticity, you need to spur collagen production. Profound uses two methods combined together that are both effective in enhancing collagen and repairing the skin. This treatment uses microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) to spur production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin in the skin.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. This treatment instigates a healing effect which causes the skin to produce collagen. RF treatment uses energy to also stimulate the skin to produce healing factors like collagen and elastin. When used together in the Profound skin treatment system, RF and microneedling can work synergistically for improved results. The skin begins to heal itself, responding by becoming thicker, tighter and healthier, smoothing away wrinkles and lines while reducing sagging.
Areas Treated by Profound
At The K Spa, Dr. Ben Stong and our team utilize the latest innovations in skin treatments to help our clients look their best. Dr. Stong is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in anti-aging treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. He and our team have had substantial success using the Profound treatment system to help our patients look younger, including in the following areas:
The Profound skin tightening treatment usually takes about an hour or two to perform, depending on the area treated. We ensure our patients are comfortable during the procedure, using a skin numbing agent to eliminate any discomfort. Recovery after the treatment is 5 to 7 days, with results becoming apparent as quickly as two weeks. The skin begins to rejuvenate over the weeks and months that follow, with final results visible at about 6 to 9 months.
Good candidates for Profound skin treatments are those who have noticed looser or sagging skin on their face or neck. Many of our patients decide to try Profound in lieu of a facelift or other more invasive procedures, or even as a precursor to surgical intervention. Since the procedure improves the elasticity and health of the skin, it can be beneficial when used with many other cosmetic treatments.
