ProFound, a new nonsurgical face procedure for creating the building blocks that keep skin smooth and elastic, is now available at Acqua Blu Medical Spa located in Pittsburgh, PA. It's the first device of its kind to tighten and smooth facial skin without swelling due to its use of micro-needle-based radio frequency energy.

The technique can be used on nearly all patients seeking a smoother, softer facial appearance without physically cutting into the skin. Participants in a recent clinical trial were shown to achieve a 100 percent response rate, meaning the technique produced significant skin improvement in all study members. The ProFound laser allows pinpoint beam delivery to precise skin areas governed by real-time temperature control. This treatment was shown to foster the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, three of the skin's most common and necessary components to softness.

"This is a huge advance in treating many facial conditions related to aging because time-consuming and often painful surgery is no longer required," said Renee DiMatteo, marketing director at the practice. "ProFound can be used to effectively remedy unsightly sagging jowls, hanging loose skin derisively called turkey neck or severe facial lines and wrinkles. This treatment has huge implications for the cosmetic relief of lax skin and other aging signs," she said.

Acqua Blu Medical Spa and Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology was founded in 2001 by Dr. Brian Heil and is today one of the largest such practices in western Pennsylvania. He received his medical degree (cum laude) locally from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. His physician partner, Ana Busquets, M.D., is an honors graduate of Harvard University with a medical degree from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago. She has particular research interests in laser technology and topical therapy to treat aging skin, which makes her invaluable in implementing the ProFound procedure.

The practice has two locations at 1614 Washington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15241 and 14000 Perry Highway, Wexford, Pa 15090. They can be reached at 724.933.1800, or visit their website at http://www.premierplasticsurgerypa.com or AcquaBluSpa.com.

Included are breast, body, and face treatments for women and men in specialties like face and neck lift, rhinoplasty, nonsurgical fat reduction, removal of cysts, scars, or warts along with skin rejuvenation and wrinkle smoothing.
