Acne scars, droopy eyelids, wrinkles, sagging jowls… We all have our own skin woes, and we’d all love to get rid of them for good. That might seem like a pipe dream, but with the right treatment, it’s not such a far-fetched idea.
At DiStefano Medical Spa in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Dr. Deborah DiStefano offers one of the most unique and effective laser skin resurfacing treatments currently available in the dermatology world. Meet Profound RF: Your skin’s new best friend.
How does Profound RF work?
Profound (more formally known as ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure) is the only radiofrequency microneedling treatment that’s FDA-cleared for treating both face and body. This minimally invasive procedure combines radiofrequency energy with the popular process of microneedling to beautifully and flawlessly resurface your skin.
Together, radiofrequency and microneedling stimulate your body’s production of natural collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin — three incredibly important components in maintaining the smoothness and tautness of your skin.
Most patients opt to receive Profound on their face, namely around the eyes, chin, and neck, but you can also utilize Profound to reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and cellulite on the rest of your body.
During a Profound RF appointment, Dr. DiStefano begins by numbing your treatment area with local anesthesia. She then moves the handheld Profound device across the treatment area, where it gently creates “micro-traumas,” or tiny injuries, on your skin.
Simultaneously, the radiofrequency energy penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin to disrupt the damaged cells. Your body responds to these micro-traumas by generating new cell production; pushing old, dull, damaged skin away; and replacing the damaged cells with fresh new skin.
According to clinical trials, Profound RF can stimulate up to five times more elastin and two times more collagen production than other laser resurfacing treatments.
