The process of facial rejuvenation has a large and growing interest for many patients, particularly with the advancements in non-surgical techniques. Facial aging involves three basic areas: the surface and health of the skin, the volume of the underlying tissues, and the position of those tissues. Various options of nonsurgical rejuvenation address these features.
Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Options
Here at Youthful Solutions MediSpa in Cedar Park, TX, we offer (3) THREE great advanced non-surgical facial regeneration treatment options for facial regeneration to fit your needs and budget. If you are looking for a non-surgical facelift, please review our Profound Treatment.
1. Micro-needling – SkinPen II
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, the procedure stimulates the production of collagen underneath the skin’s surface to reverse signs of aging and create a healthy, supple appearance. The procedure is performed using topical anesthetic and most patients have little or no downtime after the procedure.
SkinPen® can be used on nearly any area of the body, although the most common treatment areas are the face, neck and chest.
2. eTwo – Sublative & Sublime
eTwo (E2) combines Sublative & Sublime technologies for skin resurfacing, toning, acne scars, stretch marks removal, texture, wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.
Sublative is used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities and to help restore your skins natural beauty. By directing a matrix of RF energy into the skin, Sublative encourages your skin to heal and correct itself. New collagen and healthy skin cells are triggered to grow and those wrinkles and imperfections in your skins tone and texture fade away as your body heals itself.
During your sublative treatment, you may feel a warm, prickly feeling – but there should be no pain. Afterwards, you may look and feel a bit sunburned. Topical cooling ointments are available to those who need them.
Some patients begin to see results after their first treatment, but typically a series of at least three treatments is needed to truly see how amazing your skin can be. The treatments are spaced between four and six weeks apart, but our staff will help you determine what the best treatment protocol for your individual needs will be.

What is elastin?
Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue in the body – like your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs and many other tissues elastic so that they can get snap back into shape after stretching or contracting.
Why is elastin important?
Elastin works together in your skin with collagen. Elastin provides elasticity and collagen (another protein in your skin) provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm.
What is the effect of a lack of elastin as we age?
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down and become less elastic and lose its spring… think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil.
How do you build new elastin?
Elastin is normally no longer made after puberty and aging begins. In order to build new elastin, you need to cause a certain amount of damage to the skin by heating for example, so that the elastin starts to break down. Then a healing process can begin to build new elastin.
What is the best method to build elastin and collagen?
Profound is clinically proved* to build elastin. By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time, Profound leads to the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin.
What signs of aging can be treated with Profound?
Profound Lift – to treat sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
Profound Contour – to define the jawline (double chins)
Profound Smooth – to treat the folds between the nose and cheek
What is the Profound Lift procedure like?
Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in our office, usually in 1 hr and 1/2 including numbing time. We will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers energy to the deeper skin layers exactly where treatment is most beneficial.
Is Profound Lift safe?
Profound has an excellent safety record. As with any procedure, you should make sure your physician is experienced in performing Profound treatments.
How many Profound Lift treatments will I need?
You will only need 1 treatment to rejuvenate your skin with Profound. There is no need to schedule multiple office visits in order to achieve optimum results.
“The procedure was very good as compared to some of the other procedures that I have had and it was relatively painless. Following the procedure, I now see no jowls whatsoever. I see a softening of what I call “tiger stripes” and a lessening of the folds around my mouth. It’s one of the best procedures I have ever done.” I.S.
“My skin is definitely tighter. I had a real laxity problem and I had been through all kinds of treatments. I was so concerned about it, that I had considered having a facelift, but this procedure completely obviated that need.”A.B.
Is There Downtime?
Yes. It’s not excessive, but there is some skin recovery expected. Expect swelling and bruising for about 3-5 days as Profound causes your skin to make new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic, giving the skin youthful contour. Your skin may look a little bumpy for a few days. This is a natural reaction to the micro needle insertion points. The bumps will subside. Bruising and swelling will go away too. Take care of yourself, drink plenty of water, rest, and eat healthy foods to speed up your recovery. Most patients are fine with a little recovery, especially with only having to come in for 1 treatment.
I want my neck tighter. Can Profound Lift help?
Yes. We use this technology to tighten neck, treat chest wrinkles, arms, thighs, and many body areas patients want skin tighter.
Profound SubQ is a different handpiece FDA cleared for cellulite. We frequently uses this handpiece for banana rolls and cellulite on thighs. Many patients desire skin tightening lifting only, and others want long term cellulite reduction.
