I have tried to be as accepting of my aging as possible, but when I turned 49 I realized I was that much closer to 50 and it started to mess with my head a little bit. Only one more year in my 40’s and then It is all downhill from here, but the 40’s have already been super hard on me! I went through menopause and am now on the other side of it and it has left me feeling and looking a bit older than others my same age are looking. As much as I love not having periods anymore, I do miss having all those youthful hormones running through my body helping me stay younger looking. Combine that with being a sun worshipper my whole life, I am most definitely starting to look OLD!
I can remember when I was a teenager my mom would tell me that I shouldn’t lay out in the sun because I would get wrinkles when I was older. I was like well I will be like 50 so who cares! LOL I didn’t realize back then Just how young 50 really is and feels. I feel like I am still in my 20’s… well that is until I look into the mirror.
My main concerns are with the lower portion of my face. I have noticed that my face looks like it is drooping around my mouth and jawline…and don’t even get me started on my neck, It definitely ages me. I have spent the last decade or two making sure I always put sunscreen on my face when I am out in the sun, but I think I may have neglected my neck… big mistake!
So when I first heard there was a procedure that may help with these areas without surgery I was super pumped because I don’t think I could ever do any plastic surgery on my face… That just scares me, I mean if the surgeon botches something you can’t just put a pair of pants on and hide it… we are talking about your face the one thing you really can’t hide!! But if there is a way improve my own natural collagen without surgery? Heck Ya…Sign me up!
My Niece Is a Nurse who works at Aesthetica Med Spa, and when I found out she is now doing this procedure in their clinic I was all too eager to find out more. Here is what the Profound treatment does according to their website;
Profound is a revolutionary new energy-based face and body treatment designed to promote the creation of new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin looking smooth and youthful. Profound dramatically improves aging skin without surgery.
Benefits of the Profound treatment for face may include:
- Promotes the creation of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid
- 100% response rate for facial wrinkles
Who is a candidate for the Profound treatment?
Profound is a completely customizable and minimally invasive treatment suitable for women and men who wish to target the key signs of aging and cellulite on the body. The ideal patient is someone who suffers from loss of vital skin elements due to genetics, aging, and other environmental factors resulting in overall volume loss, wrinkles, and decreased skin elasticity. This is a procedure for patients who are looking to increase volume in the treatment area without surgery.
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound?
The Profound procedure can help treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck as well as address the “double chin” to help define the jawline. The Profound treatment can also help treat nasolabial folds also known as smile lines. These lines are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Profound can also be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Well this sounds like the perfect fit!!
So with much consideration I have decided to give Profound a try! Yikes it’s exciting and scary all at the same time. I have decided to document my journey with this profound procedure. I feel like people are doing things left and right to try to look better but rarely are they talking about it with other people.
So for the next couple of days/weeks I will be taking you on my profound journey with me.
