How the New Profound™ Laser Is Revolutionizing Nonsurgical Face and Neck Treatments
What if, in a 30-minute office visit, you could significantly improve the firmness, tightness, and smoothness of your skin like never before, without requiring surgery? That’s precisely what the new Profound™ laser by Syneron Candela, a revolutionary approach to nonsurgical face and neck treatments, boasts. For the first time ever, experts now know exactly how much energy is needed to be applied to the skin in order to yield the most dramatic results possible without experienced adverse side effects.
This new technology could revolutionize the way that these types of treatments are performed, and here’s how.
How Does It Work?
Profound™ is the first device of its kind to utilize temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy to maximize its skin tightening and smoothing benefits, while minimizing swelling or redness. In clinical trials, it was shown to have a 100 percent response rate, meaning that all study participants noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin following Profound™ treatment (Dermatologic Surgery).
Micro-needle-based radiofrequency energy allows for precise delivery directly to the desired areas, complete with real-time temperature control. This energy delivery system has been shown to aid in the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid–three of the most important components of the skin’s structure.
As we age, the amount of these three components in our skin begins to decrease, which leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, especially in the face and neck areas. The appearance of sagging skin is a common cosmetic concern for many women and men, making Profound™ a promising new treatment option to help the hundreds of thousands of people who wish to achieve a smoother, more youthful facial contour without having to undergo surgery.
How Does It Compare to Surgical Treatment?
Before Profound™, the only way to achieve the dramatic results that many women and men are looking for was through a surgical facelift or necklift. And while these procedures can produce very effective and long-lasting results, many people have reservations about undergoing a surgical procedure for a variety of reasons.
Current research shows, however, that under optimal conditions, the Profound™ laser could yield up to 89 percent of the skin laxity improvement results of a surgical facelift (PR Newswire). Moreover, this is a minimally-invasive procedure that typically takes only 30 minutes to perform and comes with little to no side effects. Most people can expect to return to their normal daily activities within 24 to 48 hours of treatment, and any redness or swelling that should occur typically diminishes on its own over the next few hours or days.
Who Can Benefit from the Profound™Laser?
Anyone looking to improve the appearance of aging skin may be an excellent candidate for this revolutionary technology. Some of the most common concerns that Profound™ has been shown to effectively and nonsurgically treat include:
- Sagging jowls
- Sagging skin in the neck area, sometimes referred to as “turkey neck”
- Lines and wrinkles in the face and neck areas
If you’re considering Profound™ treatment or other nonsurgical alternatives to cosmetic surgery, be sure to consult a board-certified dermatologist to accurately assess your needs and design a custom-tailored treatment plan to meet your goals.
The groundbreaking temperature-controlled radiofrequency technology behind the new Profound™ laser could have huge implications for the future of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments that address skin laxity and other signs of aging.
