Collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin are abundant in healthy, youthful-looking skin. However, time robs us of these three molecules, important for skin that is strong, well hydrated, and resilient. The gradual loss leads to laxity, contributing to everything from fine lines and wrinkles to changing facial contours. Profound® RF Microneedling at NYC's Alizadeh Cosmoplastic Surgery is a non-surgical skin-tightening solution, using radiofrequency energy and carefully made channels in the skin to start renewed production of vital collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin.
Boosting these important molecules in the skin improves firmness and reduces laxity, tightening away fine lines for a smoother look. The treatment can also reduce the appearance of cellulite, which is visible in areas where connective fibers pull the skin into noticeable puckers. Each Profound® RF microneedling session involves the application of a device that uses numerous needles to make tiny holes in the surface, as well as deliver RF energy to deeper layers, for a doubled-up approach to collagen induction.
