Profound is a revolutionary, non-surgical method of skin tightening that combines radiofrequency energy (RF) with microneedling to produce remarkable – one could even say profound – results. Hailed as a non-surgical facelift, Profound is designed to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the visibility of cellulite throughout the face, neck, and décolletage.
Minimally invasive, Profound requires very little downtime without compromising results. In fact, research has shown that a majority of patients achieve both a reduction in skin wrinkling and sagging after just one treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Profound?
The best way to learn if Profound is the right treatment for your needs is through a one-on-one consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brenda Schiesel at our comfortable Tulsa office. During this visit, Dr. Schiesel will carefully listen to your concerns, assess the areas you would like to address, and provide you with honest information about all of your treatment options.
Please call South Tulsa Plastic Surgery at 918-518-5144 to schedule a consultation with our female plastic surgeon today. We welcome patients from Jenks, Broken Arrow, Owasso, and all surrounding areas of Oklahoma.
Radiofrequency Energy and Microneedling: A Perfect Combination
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment in which a handheld roller is used to create tiny wounds on the surface of the skin. As a response to these small injuries, the body produces collagen-rich tissue. This, in turn, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help improve:
- Surgical and Acne Scars
- Sun Damage
- Pigmentation Irregularities
- Stretch Marks
- Large Pores
Radiofrequency energy uses gentle heat to penetrate deep into the dermis. There, it can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, helping to tone and tighten skin, and addressing issues such as:
- Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles
- Skin Laxity
RF can also treat sun damage in some cases.
Profound Combines These Services
During Profound treatment, tiny needles are used to penetrate the skin before a burst of RF is released. Combining these techniques allows for more thorough coverage, deeper penetration, and more noticeable results.
Profound addresses signs of aging and other imperfections throughout the face, neck, and décolletage. Use the contact form on this page to schedule your initial consultation and learn more.
Both microneedling and RF rely on your body’s natural healing response to address aged, pocked, or otherwise imperfect skin. This means that it may take six to eight weeks before you start to notice results. During this time, the care you take of your skin will impact its final appearance. You will need to protect your skin from UV exposure and other environmental factors during and after recovery to help ensure a continually healthy glow.
During recovery from Profound, mild discomfort and a bit of bleeding at the site of the puncture wounds may be present for a few days. These things should improve with time. You can help by carefully following all of Dr. Schiesel’s pre and postoperative advice.
It may take up to six months for results from Profound treatment to be fully realized. Taking care of your skin will help to ensure that, once finalized, your Profound results will continue to last for several months.
Many people choose to have a second treatment at six months and to continue maintenance treatments at regular intervals. If this is interesting to you or if it will be necessary for optimal results, we can discuss this option during your initial consultation.
Skin laxity and creasing often respond well to non-surgical treatments, but microneedling, RF, and other non-surgical options are not right for everyone. Facial plastic surgery options include:
- Facelift to address laxity in the midface, eliminate jowls, and reduce double chin
- Blepharoplasty to address dark, puffy skin underneath the eyes and gently lift the eyelids into a more alert position
- Forehead lift to smooth deep creases along the forehead and raise sagging eyebrows
It should be noted that surgical options:
- Do not address pigmentation issues, sun damage, or acne scars
- May not correct wrinkles
- Require several weeks of downtime and recovery
During your initial consultation, Dr. Schiesel will take all of the time necessary to truly understand your needs and recommend the products and services that will produce the most reliable and impressive results. Sometimes these are surgical. Sometimes, they can be accomplished through minimally invasive alternatives. Dr. Schiesel will help you determine which is the case for you during your time in our care.
