By Dr. Gary Wingate & Dr. Paul Kim

The aging process starts earlier than you may believe. In our mid-twenties, elastin begins to break down. Then, around the age of 30, collagen production steadily slows. The building blocks of your skin lose their youth. Thankfully, advancements in medical technology have given doctors the tools to slow the aging process. Paul S. Kim, MD and Gary F. Wingate, MD now proudly offer Profound by Syneron, an office-based treatment to help patients regain their youth.

Profound by Syneron

Profound is an energy-based facial treatment that stimulates and rebuilds collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in a single treatment to keep your skin smooth and elastic. Performed without surgery or fillers, profound can dramatically improve skin on the face or body that has changed with age. Profound has been approved by the FDA for treatment on the face and neck. It has been found to be clinically effective on other parts of the body.

  • Profound Smooth treats other areas of loose skin.

What is the best method to build elastin and collagen?

The treatment carefully heats the skin to an exact temperature for an exact period of time. Profound helps the body create new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin.

What is the Profound procedure like?

This revolutionary technology is a quick, single treatment performed in the office. It usually takes about 45 minutes. A local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort. The system delivers precise temperatures to the deeper skin layers, exactly where the energy being delivered is most beneficial. The safety controls of the system allow the doctor to monitor how much energy is delivered while achieving and maintaining a therapeutic temperature level.
