Didn’t think you could get a facelift without going under the knife? Think again!

For many, surgery to reduce the signs of aging is not a viable option. Whether it is the risks involved or the long recovery times, people avoid surgery. You may be one of those people. If so, fret not!

Cosmetic procedures have come a long way in recent years, making it possible to rejuvenate your look without the use of a scalpel. Today, the most effective non-surgical facelift option is called Profound. Profound can not only make you look younger, but it’s also safe and convenient. 

Read on to learn more about Profound, how it works, and if it is a good option for you. 

Common Causes of a Sagging Neck

“Turkey neck” refers to wrinkled, drooping skin on the neck – a common side effect of aging. It occurs when the muscles in your neck start to weaken, and your skin loses its elasticity or tone. 

This can also happen because excessive sun exposure (photodamage) breaks down collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for maintaining skin tightness and elasticity. In addition, it can be a result of rapid weight loss. Losing weight too quickly can deplete all fat deposits in the neck before the surrounding skin can adapt. The result is sagging skin. 

No matter the reason, a drooping neckline is one prominent feature that can make both men and women feel insecure. Fortunately, Profound offers a safe and effective solution.

How Profound Works and How it Differs From Surgical Options

Profound is a non-invasive treatment for reducing wrinkles and removing cellulite. It uses radiofrequency (RF) technology in conjunction with ultrafine needles (microneedles) to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. This is why it has become a favourite of healthcare professionals and patients alike. 

Clinically proven, Profound enhances the body’s wound-healing ability without the use of chemicals or surgery. It encourages the body to manufacture collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid on its own, which revitalizes the skin and promotes the growth of new, healthy tissue.

People prefer non-surgical aesthetic solutions over surgical ones for various reasons. Here are just some ways Profound differs from surgery: 

  • Traditional facelift surgery often includes painful incisions on the face and body. However, Profound is non-invasive so it causes very little pain.
  • Scarring is one of the most significant drawbacks of conventional surgery. There is no scarring with Profound, making it perfect for individuals with sensitive skin or skin that scars readily.
  • There is no downtime with Profound. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities within days following treatment and there is little to no aftercare.
  • Profound can be tailored to your specific needs rather than a surgeon’s vision.
  • Traditional facelift surgery can occasionally yield outcomes that appear “plastic” or unnatural. This is something you don’t have to worry about with our state-of-the-art Profound treatment. 

Who is a Good Candidate?

In general, almost anyone can benefit from Profound. Ideal candidates are those seeking to minimize the signs of ageing and revitalize their skin. Clinical studies show treatments with Profound have a 100% success rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity. 

In addition, Profound not only serves as an alternative to surgery but can also supplement it. It can help you maintain the results of your facelift operation so that you don’t have to go under the knife repeatedly.
