New @ New York Laser & Skin Care
Profound Skin Tightening for Face, Neck and Body
We are excited to announce that Dr. Arielle Kauvar is now offering treatment with Profound, the newest minimally invasive skin tightening procedure. Profound
tightens skin around the mouth, cheeks, and neck. It is also FDA approved to treat under chin (submental) fat and cellulite. Improvement was seen in all subjects in clinical trials.
Profound uses radiofrequency energy delivered through a handheld device with ultrafine needles that are inserted in the skin to create pinpoint areas of heating in the deeper tissue layers. Heat is released at a precise temperature and depth and the skin’s natural healing response regenerates all of the tissue’s building blocks - hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin to rejuvenate skin by plumping, smoothing and tightening. Treatments take thirty to sixty minutes and there may be redness, swelling and bruising lasting three to seven days. Profound requires one single treatment and maximal results are typically seen three months later.

August 16, 2011
Dr. Kauvar is pleased to be one of the first dermatologists in the New York area to offer an exceptional new procedure named Pellevé (pronounced pel-lu-vey).
Pellevé is a technology that safely and effectively delivers skin tightening, smoothing and firming via a series of non-invasive, painless procedures with no downtime and immediate and long-term results. The best results are achieved in mildly to moderately wrinkled, dull and/or lax skin, yielding firmer, tighter and more glowing skin using radiofrequency energy. This technology heats the deeps layers of the skin just enough to stimulate collagen changes without damaging the top layer of epidermis. Pellevé firms the skin around the eyes (crows feet, under eye wrinkles and lax skin), cheeks, jowls, neck, lines on the forehead, nasolabial folds, sagging skin under the chin, wrinkles around the mouth, and excess skin on the upper eyelid.
Pellevé results can last up to six months and it can be used on all skin types including tanned skin.
