Profound Builds Elastin & Collagen for Smoother, Tighter Skin –
Within our skin, two proteins work together to provide us with smooth, elastic skin: collagen and elastin. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s structure; keeping it smooth and firm. Elastin, on the other hand, is responsible for elasticity. But as we grow older, our bodies’ levels of collagen and elastin decrease, leaving us with wrinkles, lines, and sagging, loose skin.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to obtain tighter skin, regardless of a person’s age? At AMAE Med Spa in Troy, MI area, such a solution is now a reality!
In 2020 we have added the newly released Profound radiofrequency microneedling treatment. This remarkable procedure has been clinically proven to both stimulate the production of collagen and build elastin. With Profound RF microneedling, patients can expect tighter skin than they’ve had in many years.
In this article, board certified Troy, MI area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali discusses why Profound RF microneedling is ideal for anyone wishing for youthful, smoother, tighter skin.
How Does Elastin Build Tighter Skin?
By coiling in a spring-like fashion within the connective tissues of the body, elastin is responsible for providing the body’s tissue with elasticity. Without elastin, organs such as the heart, lungs, skin, and many others would be incapable of maintaining their shape after being stretched or contracted.
By the time we reach our mid 20’s, our body’s elastin begins to break down and lose its ability to recoil. This is why we have tighter skin earlier in life than we do as we age. Generally, the body stops producing elastin by the time we finish puberty.
In order for the body to build new elastin required for tighter skin, the skin must first be subjected to just the right amount of damage. By breaking down old, worn out elastin, the skin’s healing processes trigger more elastin to be produced.
Heating the skin is an excellent way to produce the kind of “damage” needed to kickstart the healing process, which is precisely why Profound microneedling is performed with radiofrequency energy.
How Does Collagen Build Tighter Skin?
Of the many proteins contained within the body, collagen is the most plentiful. Responsible for holding together every single part of the body, collagen sometimes referred to as the glue of the human body.
But despite its critical roll in our anatomy, the body’s production of collagen begins to slow down significantly. Statistically speaking, by the time we reach 25, our bodies begin to break down more collagen than we produce. With collagen and elastin both significantly diminished by this point in our lives, it is no wonder Profound microneedling has become so popular among our Troy, MI area patients.
Certain steps may be taken, however, to avoid putting unnecessary strain on these crucial proteins. If you’re in your mid 20s and your aim is to have tighter skin than your peers for years to come, start by cutting two things out of your routine: smoking and sun exposure. Both tobacco smoke and ultraviolet like are highly degrative to both collagen and elastin, and can cause skin to wrinkle and sag from an early age.
But for anyone in the Troy, MI area area who is interested in restoring their skin’s collagen and elastin levels, we offer a groundbreaking solution in Profound RF microneedling. With Profound, patients are afforded tighter skin with the smooth, youthful complexion that only radiofrequency energy can achieve.
How Profound Builds Collagen & Elastin for Tighter Skin
By carefully applying RF-generated heat energy to the elastin and collagen of the skin, Profound stimulates the creation of the proteins required for tighter skin.
Board certified Troy, MI area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali performs the Profound treatment by inserting microneedle electrodes into the fat’s subcutaneous layer, distributing RF energy and triggering the natural healing process required to produce elastin and collagen.
Additionally, Profound microneedling also stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, another substance produced by the body to yield smoother, tighter skin.
