Advancing the Frontiers of Cosmetic Procedures: Profound®, CoolTone™, and MorePosted On: October 16, 2019
As technology continues to improve, the cosmetic options available to women and men seem to grow by leaps and bounds each year! It’s now possible to address an unprecedented number of signs of aging, skin irregularities, unwanted fat deposits, and other common problems—all with greater convenience than ever before. The Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery team invites patients to try some of the latest advances in the industry, including Profound®, at our Grand Rapids-based practice.
With advanced age comes experience and wisdom (hopefully!), but our physical appearance often changes in unwelcome ways as the skin thins and loosens and fat migrates downward. Wrinkles and sagging are an unfortunate consequence of getting older, as well as having our skin repeatedly battered by UV radiation and pulled down by gravity.
Profound® is a groundbreaking radiofrequency-based form of microneedling, which works as a nonsurgical alternative to facelift surgery and dermal fillers. It’s also effective on cellulite. The treatment creates tiny channels in the skin while simultaneously delivering RF energy into deeper layers to stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. This results in added natural volume and improves skin elasticity without incisions or sutures. Patients often only need one Profound® session to get a long-lasting look of smoother, tighter, and lifted skin. Expect to see positive changes within just a few weeks.
In addition to Profound®, men and women searching for a solution for cellulite may want to try Cellfina™. During this nonsurgical treatment, the microblading device directly targets the cause of dimples by releasing tension in connective cords beneath the surface.
In late June, global pharmaceutical pioneer Allergan’s latest body contouring treatment was cleared by the FDA for use on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Unlike other body contouring treatments that freeze, melt, or mechanically break up fat, CoolTone™ is designed to firm and tighten underlying muscles with intense magnetic muscle stimulation. A series of rapid, involuntary muscle contractions enhances muscle tone and encourages fat metabolization in the area. CoolTone™ makes an excellent accompaniment to CoolSculpting®!
Recent innovations have also created more options for women considering breast implants. Rapid recovery breast augmentation, as employed in The Bengtson Center’s Fast-Trak Recovery Program, reduces downtime after the surgery to just 24 to 48 hours. Dr. Brad Bengtson and Dr. David Alfonso both use this sophisticated surgical techniques with careful preparation and proven aftercare strategies that greatly minimize trauma.
