Profound in Glenview is a facial treatment that uses radiofrequency to increase the elasticity and smoothness of the skin using collagen, hydrolauric acid, and elastin. The treatment is performed without surgery, toxin, and fillers, and it improves the look of aging skin, making you look much younger.
What Happens to Elastin and Collagen in Our Skin As We Age?
Elastin is a fiber in our connective tissues that coils and recoils like a spring. Elastin makes many tissues in your body elastic, including your skin, heart, and lungs. Collagen is a tissue that provides structure, making our skin firm and smooth. Profound in Glenview can help restore these tissues, giving you healthier, younger looking skin.
How Does Profound in Glenview Work?
Profound uses technology by Syneron which includes a handpiece consisting of radiofrequency energy needles. A member of our team places the handpiece on affected areas and the needles penetrate the skin, using heat at a precise temperature to target these areas. The energy simulates the body to produce new collagen and elastin.
What Are the Results of Profound?
The results of the treatment are firmer and smoother skin, reduced wrinkles, and an improvement in the jowls and sagging skin of the upper neck. It also fills the skin, making it appear more youthful. Profound replaces the old collagen and elastin with new collagen and elastin over time, so you may notice the effects over several months. Most patients report improvements 6-8 weeks after the treatment. It usually takes a few months for optimal results to be visible.
Am I a Good Candidate for Profound in Glenview?
You may be a good candidate for Profound if you want to treat the following signs of aging:
- Sagging jowls and loose skin
- If you want to define your jawline or get rid of your double chin
- If you have other areas of loose skin, such as folds between the nose and cheek or upper lip wrinkles
The Profound treatment is colorblind and is safe and effective for nearly all skin tones.
What Is the Treatment Like?
Profound in Glenview is a single procedure that is relatively short. There is little to no pain associated with treatment, and local anesthetic is available for your additional comfort. After the treatment, you can immediately resume normal activities.
