Around the age of 30, the body begins to produce less and less of the three main components which keep the skin looking youthful and healthy – Collagen which maintains the structure of the skin, Elastin which keeps the skin firm and taught, and Hyaluronic Acid which helps retain moisture.

The good news is that this aging process can be reversed by using a leading-edge procedure, called Profound RF. This minimally invasive treatment is clinically proven to stimulate the production of new elastin and collagen – restoring a youthful, healthy glow.

Before & After

What Conditions Does Profound Treat?

  • Sagging jowls and loose skin under the neck
  • Undefined jawline and double chins
  • Wrinkles on the face in areas such as the cheeks, upper lip, around the mouth, and chin
What is Profound Non-Surgical Facelift?

Profound RF is a minimally invasive procedure where a group of microneedles is inserted into the skin. In turn, they deliver heated radiofrequency energy deep into a deep layer of the dermis which consists of densely packed collagen and elastin fibers.

The microneedles are strategically positioned in the tissue being treated, and real-time feedback from the tissue is used to precisely create the desired level of thermal damage to the tissue. As a result, highly predictable clinical results are achieved, as each treatment is customized to the patient’s unique skin response.

At the end of each treatment cycle, the electrodes are removed, and the Profound RF device is repositioned and activated on the next treatment area.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The entire Profound RF procedure is completed in one session which generally lasts approximately 45 minutes. Most patients experience very little discomfort during the procedure.

Is There Any Downtime?

Unlike a surgical facelift where patients encounter scarring, severe swelling, and a fairly lengthy recovery period, the Profound RF procedure has very little downtime. Patients may experience up to 7 days of minor swelling, bruising, and redness, however, most resume normal activities within 24 hours.

What Results Can I Expect?

Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production begins immediately and continues for a number of months. Visible results generally appear within 3 months and continue to improve for the next 3 – 6 months.

Because the Profound procedure bypasses the top later of skin and delivers energy into deeper layers, the results have been reported to last as long as 3 years.

“The best decision I ever made. Thanks to Ildiko and her team I now have my confidence back. I can’t tell you how stressful it was going into a social situation with the fear of breaking out into a heavy sweat. I recommend miraDry treatment to anyone who wants to eliminate sweat and odor in the underarm area.
