Strive to keep your skin looking younger, longer.
Learn more about these three critical skin elements.
Every time we smile, frown, or sit in the sunshine, tiny grooves form under the surface of the skin. In our younger years, the skin springs back almost instantaneously. But as we age, the skin loses some of its elasticity, and these small creases build up over time, resulting in wrinkly skin.
There are three critical skin elements that contribute to skin aging - elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid.1Learn More
What are Elastin, Collagen, and Hyaluronic Acid?
Elastin - the 'rubber band' of the human body - helps tissue 'snap back' into shape when it is stretched.
Collagen - the most abundant protein in the human body - provides strength to the skin. The smallest collagen building blocks are 5-10 times stronger than steel!2
Hyaluronic acid - a naturally occuring substance in the skin - helps to keep skin hydrated.
The 'rubber band' of the human body - helps tissue 'snap back' into shape when it is stretched.
How can I make my
skin look younger?
You may have heard of all the usual 'skin saving' suspects; topical retinoids, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, noninvasive and invasive energy-based devices, and surgical reconstruction. But some of these approaches - such as fillers and injections - do not address issues beneath the skin, therefore only offering a temporary fix. That's why interest is growing in longer-term solutions.
One such option for lasting, nonsurgical wrinkle reduction, is the use of radiofrequency devices.
So what matters most when considering this type of nonsurgical wrinkle reduction?
Consider a treatment that can create all three skin elements - elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Where can I find a lasting, nonsurgical solution?
Many currently available radiofrequency devices offer real-time control of energy, but the Profound® system by Candela is the only FDA-cleared, long-pulse radiofrequency device that also offers real-time temperature control.3
The ability of the Profound® system to control temperature in real-time means that the wound healing process is more controlled. That leads to less likelihood of tissue damage4 and optimal production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid.5, 6
Up to 5x the elastin, up to 2x the collagen and increased hyaluronic acid is a reality with the Profound® treatment. Isn't it time that you bring the snap back to aging skin?
