Profound Lift: Newest Technology to Combat Turkey Neck

A Profound Lift stimulates the three key building blocks for healthy, youthful skin - natural elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to firm and lift loose skin.

The newest FDA cleared non-surgical treatment to help patients defy the effects of aging is Profound from Syneron Candela. Profound targets areas of skin at the neck and jawline which are most affected by aging. In a single session, the treatment delivers radiofrequency energy via hairlike "micro needles" below the surface layers of the skin. A Profound Lift stimulates the three key building blocks for healthy, youthful skin - natural elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. A physician performs the minimally invasive procedure - and its effect is intended to last up to five years. Studies show that the treatment yields a 100% response, creating younger looking skin, profoundly.

You may be addicted to texting and Instagram, but you probably aren't a fan of the consequences: turkey neck. The constant habit of looking down at your smartphone degrades skin firmness, one reason your neck may have a little waddle-waddle.

So if you want to tell that turkey to flap off, forget surgery, fillers, or toxins. It's time to erase the loose, sagging skin under the neck and jowls with PROFOUND, an energy-based facial treatment that creates new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to firm and tone aging skin.

How it works: PROFOUND carefully heats the skin's elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time. The result: the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin. In clinical studies, treatment had 100% response rate for wrinkles and 95% response rate for skin laxity.

The results: Most patients see improvement in 6-8 weeks, and results get even better for 3 to 6 months as collagen and elastin continue to develop.

The details: You only need one treatment in a physician's office, and it takes just 45 minutes or less. There may be minor redness, swelling, or bruising, but you can cover it with makeup and return to normal activities the next day.
