Profound Treatment– At the Aesthetic Centers, our aim is to offer our patients the latest scientifically proven modalities that can help enhance rejuvenation and achieve beautification. To that end, we are introducing Profound.
Profound is a new energy-based face and neck treatment that creates new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid that keep the skin smooth and elastic. Using radiofrequency microneedling, Profound dramatically improves aging skin with minimal downtime.
Is a Profound treatment right for me?
Ideal candidates for Profound are people who are seeking to reduce the signs of aging. In clinical studies, Profound treatments had a 100% response rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity.**
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound?
Profound Lift to treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck. Profound Contour to define the jawline (double chins). Profound Smooth to treat other areas of loose skin.
Let’s face it, we want to look our best at any age – not over filled and over-stretched, just natural. We want to age gracefully, beautifully and elegantly. Inevitably, fine lines and wrinkles set in. The Vivace experience provides the most dramatic results that will address those concerns with virtually no pain and no downtime. It’s the newest generation of microneedling with radio frequency, and The Vivace is FDA cleared for your safety. This non-surgical treatment for contouring and tightening the face, neck, hands and body stimulates the natural production of collagen. This results in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the results can be seen immediately.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE VIVACE EXPERIENCE™
Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with the newest breakthroughs in numbing cream, treatment serums and recovery care to create an optimal patient experience that might just keep you from investigating other more invasive procedures down the road. The Vivace Experience™ provides the most dramatic results with virtually no pain and no social downtime. The results are both immediate and improve over time with multiple treatments. With results you can see, you’ll look and feel your best at any age.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.
DOES IT HURT?
Our Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free. The Vivace was designed with patient comfort in mind.
HOW DO I DETERMINE THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?
It’s important to work with a trusted doctor who uses FDA-cleared devices to give you confidence in its safety and reliability. Seek a patient experience that has been designed to be the most comfortable experience with the greatest results. Be clear that the device used is only part of the process, the right serums and recovery system will enhance your results.
WHAT IS RF?
Radio frequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Many physicians find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on experience desired.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
WHEN CAN I WEAR MAKEUP?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the Vivace treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Enhance Weekly Mask and Soothe Recovery System. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and you may even wait until the next morning.
HOW DO I GET THE MAXIMUM RESULT FROM MY TREATMENT?
Start with the right device, with the right treatment serums with the right recovery system. Follow the recommended recovery protocols once you get home, which include Enhance Weekly Mask, and the Soothe Recovery System that includes a soothing spray, cleanser and balm. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and three to five days off from working out, and you are well on your way to maximizing The Vivace Experience™ for yourself. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
WHAT KIND OF SKIN DOES IT WORK ON?
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULT LAST?
Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
WHAT IS MY RECOVERY TIME?
The clear, microchannels created by The Vivace remain open for a limited time—unique to The Vivace. Physicians may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After that time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day. There are a number of facial injectable products available, includingBotoxinjections, Juvederm and Radiesse.
