What is ProfoundⓇ?

This minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment uses fractionated radiofrequency energy to increase dermal volume by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The non-ablative radiofrequency energy used in ProfoundⓇ skin tightening treatments heats the deepest layers of the skin, causing the existing collagen structures to tighten and triggering the production of new skin support structures. As these new support structures begin to develop, they will help tighten, tone, and smooth the skin for a refreshed, younger-looking appearance.

Our ProfoundⓇ skin tightening can be used to improve the appearance of many visible signs of age, including:

  • Sagging skin
  • Jowls
  • Wrinkles
  • Loss of facial volume

When will I see results?

The results of our ProfoundⓇ skin tightening treatments develop gradually as the newly formed collagen and elastin develop and improve the overall quality of the skin at a cellular level. As the collagen and elastin develop, your skin will begin to looker tighter, firmer, and more youthful. Most of our patients begin to experience a noticeable improvement in the treated area within six to eight weeks of their treatment session. The results of this treatment may take longer to develop for some patients depending on their age, general health, lifestyle, and post-treatment skin care. Some patients may require several treatment sessions in order to achieve their aesthetic goals. Individual results may vary.

Who is a candidate?

ProfoundⓇ is a potential treatment for men and women who are interested in tightening and toning loose or sagging skin, restoring facial volume, and improving the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles. Prior to beginning treatment, Dr. Varkarakis will review your general health and medical history and discuss your treatment goals with you to determine if this is the right skin tightening treatment for you.

What are the potential side effects?

Common side effects can include minor swelling, bruising, tenderness, and/or redness in the treated area following your treatment session. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own within one week of your ProfoundⓇ skin tightening treatment.
