Lines and wrinkles are the most concerning signs of aging, and you may be considering plastic surgery in Atlanta to turn back the hands of time. The procedures do produce dramatic results, but this may not be the best way to look younger. Today’s plastic surgeons understand that the procedure should meet the needs of the patient, and this philosophy has led to the development of non-surgical solutions, such as facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction with Profound.
You develop wrinkles for many reasons, but most wrinkles are linked to the levels of collagen and fat in your skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin. Collagen is a dynamic protein that is simultaneously developed and lost in the body. In younger skin, the amount of collagen that is lost is nearly equivalent to what is created, so the skin maintains a smooth appearance. Somewhere around the time we reach our 30s, the body produces less collagen than what is lost. Another protein that is important to your skin is elastin. It gives the skin an elastic property to help it maintain shape. As with collagen, as you get older, your body cannot replenish the elastin at the same rate as it is lost. This leads to sagging skin.
Research into skin aging has revealed that thermal energy that gently heats the deeper layers of skin stimulates collagen and elastin production. This balances levels and restores the skin’s ability to resist wrinkles and sagging. The radio frequency technology behind ProFound treatments is quite effective in this process. With just a single 45-minute treatment, you can increase the collagen and elastin in your skin to soften wrinkles and add volume to the skin.
Natural collagen and elastin development does take some time, so you see a gradual improvement in your skin. After three to six months, you can see the full results of your ProFound treatments. Several factors affect how long the results will last, and this does vary by person.
