Protege ELITE Skin Tightening
Protege Elite Skin Tightening Treatment
If you do not like your neck or jowls and are tired of hiding behind turtlenecks and scarves, the Protege Elite (RF) device may be for you.
The Protege Elite is a safe and effective facial contouring and skin tightening device that uses the latest advances in radio frequency aesthetic treatment. High frequency radio waves help stimulate and strengthen collagen to reduce wrinkles and reduce laxity. See your jowls shrink to reveal your true jawline; those crow's feet, worry lines and smile lines fade away, turning the hands of time back in your favor. The Protege Elite treatment is safe for patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging or want to improve problem areas on their face, neck or decollete without resorting to invasive procedures. While not a replacement for neck lift or face lift, Protege Elite can provide a very nice alternative for those not seeking a surgical solution, or as a supplemental treatment following facial surgery or Kybella treatment.
What Should I Expect?
Most treatments last between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the number of areas being treated. You can expect a deep heat to the treated tissue only. You should arrive without makeup and wearing loose comfortable clothing. It is important that you are very well hydrated, during and after your Protege Elite treatment to achieve maximum results. There is no downtime with this treatment, and you can resume your normal activities as soon as the treatment is completed. There may be temporary redness and swelling in the skin for about 20-30 minutes following the treatment. Patients have reported visible improvements after the second treatment session but it is common to see improvements up to 6 months.
How many treatments will I need?
The recommended number of treatments is between 2 to 4 sessions. Treatments are usually scheduled 2 to 4 weeks apart and patients have reported visible improvements after the second treatment session. The number of treatments will depend on your existing aesthetic concerns and the goals you want to achieve.
How long do results last?
Studies indicate that the beneficial changes to skin collagen can last over 2 years in some cases. As with virtually all skin restorative techniques, the original aging symptoms may slowly return and maintenance sessions are often recommended.
