Non-Surgical Lower Eyelid Treatments Edmonton

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a common procedure used for correcting and/or tightening of the eyelids. It typically involves the use of scalpels, forceps, and scissors to remove excess saggy skin around the eyes. In the past, non-surgical methods of tightening the delicate skin under the eyes simply did not exist – until now. At Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery, we are dedicated to mastering the most cutting-edge technologies from around the world, and the Profound® RF non-surgical technology is a perfect example of that. 

The Profound® RF non-surgical technology is able to achieve results similar to that of lower eyelid surgery with far less down time and cost. What’s more, similar to surgical eyelid surgery, Profound® RF is a one-time procedure – no need to return for additional treatments. Profound® RF causes you to grow your own collagen, elastin, and healthy skin cells – no fillers or creams required!

The Profound® RF Advantage

Profound® RF non-surgical technology achieves similar results to plastic surgery, without the complications, downtime, or cost. It’s an aesthetic technology that leverages the most cutting edge breakthroughs in skin science, allowing us to achieve twice the results of other treatments in a fraction of the time. Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery is at the forefront of many of these discoveries, learning from specialists all over the world. We will only invest in the most reliable and game-changing technologies; Profound® RF non-surgical Facelift technology is one of them.

The science behind the technology is simple: it puts back into our skin what life takes out of it. Skin specialists have documented that there are three reasons for the age-effect. Each day as we age, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. This is a natural part of ageing. With each year that passes, we produce less of these chemicals, causing our skin to lose elasticity and sag. Wrinkles and cellulite become more prominent, especially in the under eye area.

Radiofrequency Technology is a non-invasive process that injects radio waves into the skin, reawakening your body’s ability to produce these chemicals. You can expect an average increase in five times your collagen, twice as much elastin, and a considerable increase in hyaluronic acid. The result is a natural-looking improvement to the under-eye and lower eyelid area.

What is the Downtime for Profound® Skin Tightening?

Like any effective treatment, there is a degree of social downtime. For most patients, this is 2-5 days. The maximum is 3-8 days. During this time, the inflammation in treated areas reduces day by day. One week later, all redness and all visibility of the treatment are almost entirely gone.

Is the Profound® RF Procedure Painful?

No, the procedure is almost completely free pain. The only thing you may experience during the procedure is pressure and heat. Nurses apply a topical numbing cream on your skin. This cream numbs the nerve-endings, quieting them throughout the procedure. Once you are thoroughly numb, we inject a local block to further eliminate discomfort. There may, however, be a delicate pinching around the more sensitive areas of the face, such as the lips. Outside of these effects, the RF Procedure has been designed to be the least intrusive and invasive treatment currently available to skin science.

Is the Procedure FDA Approved?

Yes, it is. It’s the only micro-needling procedure of its kind that the FDA approves for face and body treatment. The Department of Health Canada has also given the RF Procedure its stamp of approval.

How many treatments of the RF Procedure should you have?

One treatment is enough to achieve sustainable and lasting results. Realistically, this doesn’t mean that you will never age again. While the RF Procedure can turn back the hands of time, eliminating several years from your appearance, it cannot stop time altogether. Ageing is a natural part of the life cycle that shouldn’t be stopped, only temporarily interrupted.

Is Profound® RF as Effective as Plastic Surgery?

The RF Procedure produces up to 40% the results in skin tightening and overall rejuvenation that plastic surgery provides. This makes it almost half as effective as plastic surgery, without the pain, cost, or downtime that comes with plastic surgery. Studies have shown that after a single treatment of the RF Procedure, 9 out of 10 patients are completely satisfied with the results from the RF Procedure.

How Long do the Effects Last?

The RF Procedure’s results are long-lasting. They remove the current wrinkles and cellulite from your skin. However, ageing is unavoidable: new lines will eventually form from smiling, laughing, speaking, and the general use of our faces.

Does the RF Procedure get rid of Wrinkles?

Profound® RF boasts a 100% response rate in wrinkles by the 3-month mark. The procedure has proven to be very useful with wrinkles in all clinical studies. In clinical tests, wrinkles have been almost completely removed, making your skin look rejuvenated.

What Areas of the Face Can Profound® RF Treat?

Profound® RF can be utilized to treat virtually any area of skin or soft tissue on the face and body. At Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery, our Profound® RF face applications include:

Non-Surgical Brow Lifts and Temporal Lifts ("Mini" Brow Lifts)

Brow lifts, also referred to as forehead lifts or forehead rejuvenation, is a procedure that improves the overall look and appearance of the brow, forehead, and eye-area by raising the forehead and brow. With Profound® RF non-surgical technology, Dr. Sharma is able to:

  • Improving the tone and texture of the skin on the forehead.
  • Reducing wrinkles in the forehead, brow, and eye area.
  • Improving the look of “saggy” cheeks

Tightening of Nasolabial Folds

Profound® RF is a minimally-invasive micro-needling technology that stimulates your body to naturally produce collagen and hyaluronic acid, which in turn results in improved skin hydration and elasticity. These beneficial properties of Profound® RF enable it to dramatically improve the appearance of nasolabial folds (AKA, “smile lines”) by softening wrinkles and tightening the skin. What makes Profound® RF even more incredible is the lack of downtime associated with the treatment. After your first nasolabial fold Profound® RF treatment, you’ll be able to return to your daily routine faster and at a significantly lower cost than a traditional surgical nasolabial fold reduction procedure. 

Improvement of Perioral Lines

Profound® RF has proven in clinical studies to be effective at significantly improving the appearance of perioral lines, which are lines that occur around the mouth and lips. These lines can be deep or fine, varying from patient to patient. The typical causes of these lines, similar to most other wrinkles, are sun exposure, genetics, and smoking. Profound® RF, combined with our CO2RE® Laser Resurfacing technology, are a fantastic approach to combating those pesky perioral lines, allowing you to enjoy a more youthful appearance.

Facial Rejuvenation by Improving Skin Texture & Elasticity

Dr. Sharma is a master in facial rejuvenation and design, and achieves elegant results for his patients that look natural while restoring youthfulness. He is able to achieve these beautiful results by applying Profound® RF in critical areas responsible for wrinkles, sagging, and poor texture. The Profound® RF microneedling technology stimulates your body’s collagen production, resulting in rejuvenated skin that is tighter and has an improved texture.
