We wear hats, apply sunscreen, and stay in the shade as much as possible to protect our skin, but eventually, the results of aging can be seen on our face regardless of the precautions we take. For some, the fine lines and wrinkles that slowly set in on their most noticeable features can be significantly improved by the famous Atlanta facelift procedure. Many others, however, seek improvement to their skin but are terrified of undergoing an invasive procedure requiring an extensive recovery. Luckily, the Atlanta Profound® skin tightening treatments are a revolutionary new method of improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face without any of the negative concerns associated with a facelift.


Profound® is a unique skin tightening treatment that provides similar results to a surgical facelift procedure but differs in that it is minimally invasive. You may be asking how it is possible to rid yourself of years’ worth of wrinkles without going under the knife. Profound®’s technology allows the skin to produce new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, elements naturally found in high amounts in youthful looking skin, resulting in a tighter appearance of the skin of the face without having to surgically stretch and remove extra skin.


There is some downtime associated with this procedure, however, side effects are fairly minimal and you can even drive yourself home after your session. It is normal to experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising for a few days, but most symptoms subside within five to seven days.


The results of a Profound® skin tightening treatment gradually appear over the course of the following ten to twelve months. As time elapses, the body will continue to produce a larger amount of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid and the skin will become firmer, fuller, and smoother as a result. Initial improvements can appear in as little as two weeks. These results can be expected to last for up to four years.  Astra Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon in Atlanta, Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, is the leading provider for cosmetic facial procedures in North Georgia.
