The Profound Skin Tightening is the only device on the market to create elastin in the skin for true skin tightening.
What does Profound Skin Tightening do?
As we get older, our skin elasticity and health starts to deteriorate. Some may notice gravity take effect with skin sagging and more pronounced aged lines throughout the face and the entire body. There are several factors as to why the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite increase: collagen levels decrease every year, elastin production stops, and hyaluronic acid diminishes. At DCCM, we have a treatment that will help rebuild skin elasticity and collagen production. It is called Profound Skin Tightening. Profound is the first and only radio frequency micro-needling device with FDA clearance for skin tightening of the face, legs, and stomach. Profound has also proven to increase volume in the skin as well. The ultimate effect of the Profound treatment isn’t just a “minor cosmetic change,” but it is essential to restoring the production of whole, new healthy tissues. The desired result is a more lifted appearance, firmer and smoother skin, wrinkle reduction, an improvement of the jowls and improvement of sagging skin. Profound also adds volume to thin skin that makes the face appear more youthful.
What should I expect on treatment day?
At DCCM, all patients are required to fill out paperwork and consents prior to getting any treatment done. Once paperwork is all filled out, one of our staff members will take pictures of the area being treated. This is for medical reasons only, unless stated otherwise. Once everything is complete, you will be brought back to the treatment room. Tara Delle Chiaie, NP, Master Injector, and owner of DCCM, will begin the procedure. First, Tara will numb the area being treated using lidocaine injections, so that the you will have maximum comfort throughout the procedure. Profound uses a small disposable cartridge made up of 5 or 7 pairs of insulated needles where the radio frequency energy is delivered through. The needles penetrate into the skin and release heat for a specific amount of time at a precise temperature and depth. This high energy then stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastic tissue. Tara will use the small applicator throughout the entire area, which could last anywhere between 1-2 hours.
What should I expect after treatment?
With the Profound Skin Tightening treatment, downtime is to be expected. Downtime can last anywhere from 5-7 days. It is normal to experience: redness, bruising, swelling along the injected site, small red dots are normal as well with some shedding skin. Over the next few weeks after treatment, you will start to notice your skin will tighten and tone. Patients see results after one treatment. If you are not ready for a facelift but are concerned with laxity of the skin and a blurred jawline than you are ready for a Profound treatment
