Profound Skin Tightening
What if you could tighten and lift the skin on your neck and face without surgery? Profound skin tightening is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that offers dramatic results for lifting and tightening the skin, while simultaneously plumping and smoothing the skin and improving the skin quality, with only one non-surgical treatment. Dr. Benjamin Stong and our team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, now offer Profound skin treatments for our patients that want a non-surgical option for a more youthful appearance.
As you get older, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Less elastin and collagen are produced, resulting in poor skin quality. The skin becomes thinner, with less volume, and loose. It no longer forms to the face, but droops through the cheeks, jowls, chin and neck. Surgically, facelifts address this issue, removing excess or stretched skin, and lifting the skin and muscle to a more youthful position. However, facelifts do not improve skin quality and thickness that is lost. Profound skin tightening can have a similar effect by tightening the skin, but with the added benefit of improving skin quality for softer, thicker skin that looks more youthful.
At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we embrace new technology and techniques that can benefit our patients. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong, is excited to offer Profound skin tightening to improve the structure of the skin for aging patients. This treatment can be used as a prelude or substitute to a surgical facelift, giving natural results without the use of fillers, neurotoxins or surgery. It helps stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which repairs aging skin. It can also help erase acne scars, rejuvenating the surface of the skin.
What is RF Microneedling Skin Tightening?
Profound skin tightening uses a combination of microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy to stimulate rejuvenation of the skin. The process is performed using a handheld device that emits RF through tiny needles. The needles penetrate the skin to deliver RF heat energy at the right depth and for a specific amount of time. With the needle penetration and treatment with RF energy, the skin begins to produce more collagen and elastin in response. As this process progresses in the skin, it becomes tighter, reducing loose skin and defining facial features. Lines and wrinkles smooth, sagging is less pronounced, and the volume of the skin looks more youthful.
The time needed for this procedure depends on the size of the area that is treated. In most cases, a facial treatment will take about one to two hours. We numb the skin before the treatment to reduce any discomfort. After the treatment, recovery is about five to seven days, with some swelling, bruising, redness and flaking of the skin as it heals. Results can begin to be noticeable in about two weeks, with maximum results achieved between six and nine months.
