Profound® Skin Tightening
Smooth, tight skin is the key to maintaining a youthful appearance. Profound nonsurgical skin tightening treatments at CaloSpa® Rejuvenation Center in Louisville and Lexington, KY, create the new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid that are the building blocks of youthful skin. Profound radiofrequency treatments can erase years from your appearance without incisions or needles.
Smooth and Contour Without Surgery
Most nonsurgical skin tightening procedures work by using heat or light energy to create controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body's natural healing process. That process produces tighter and smoother skin that looks more youthful. Profound combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to trigger the production of collagen and elastin for the skin tightening results that patients want. We can also use growth factors of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to promote the healing process.
In addition to skin tightening, a Profound treatment can improve wrinkles and fine lines, rosacea, and acne. Ideal candidates for Profound skin tightening treatments—sometimes called a nonsurgical facelift—are concerned about lax skin and wrinkles. We can also use Profound to address concerns about lax skin and cellulite on the thighs, in the abdominal area, and the upper arms.
Our highly trained providers perform Profound treatments after creating a treatment plan designed to address the specific areas you're concerned about. We first apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Once the treatment area is numb, your provider holds the device and tiny microneedles deliver the radiofrequency energy below the surface of the skin into the dermis. The heat triggers the body's healing process, which produces new collagen and elastin. The procedure also stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, the ingredient used in most dermal fillers that restores volume to the skin.
Profound differs from other laser skin rejuvenation platforms because it delivers the heat energy directly to tissue below the skin. In contrast, a laser treatment requires the laser to penetrate the skin's outer layers, which minimizes the effectiveness of those treatments.
A Profound treatment typically takes about an hour and is performed at our practice. A single treatment should produce the desired results.
What does the treatment feel like?
We use a local anesthetic so that our patients feel little discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, some swelling and redness is normal for 3 to 7 days, and you may notice your skin shedding external layers.
Who's a good candidate for Profound?
The ideal candidate for Profound skin tightening treatments is someone who shows early signs of aging, such as loose skin along the jawline (jowls) and neck, along with moderate wrinkling. A nonsurgical skin tightening treatment such as Profound can produce significant results, but more severe skin laxity may need facial plastic surgery to produce the desired results.
What does Profound cost?
As with all cosmetic treatments, the cost of the procedure depends on a patient's specific needs. After we perform a thorough examination at your consultation, we can provide a detailed treatment price quote.
