The Profound Lift is a non-surgical face lift that dramatically improves aging skin so that you can look years younger. It is a minimally invasive treatment designed to help people who have sagging skin and loss of volume around the mouth, cheeks, and neck.
What is Profound Lift?
Profound Lift is an energy-based facial treatment that creates new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid (the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic). There is no surgery, filler or toxins. For the Profound Lift I use a handheld device with tiny radio frequency energy needles that release heat into the skin at a precise temperature and depth. This heat stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. New collagen means firmer, smoother skin with increased volume. More elastin means your skin will resist sagging and wrinkling. And hyaluronic acid will plump your skin cells for a smoother skin texture.
What are the benefits of Profound Lift?

How does it work?
To perform a Profound Lift we use a technology created by Syneron Candela. There is a machine that controls a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed on the areas that have been pre-determined to provide maximal effect. The needles penetrate into the skin and release heat for a specific amount of time at a precise temperature and depth. This high energy stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastic tissue. That’s it!
Is it safe for all skin types?
Yes! The Profound Lift is safe for all skin types, complexions and ethnicities.
Is it painful?
A local anesthetic is applied prior to treatment for maximum patient comfort. You will be completely awake during the procedure and will only feel some pressure but no pain during the process.
How long does it take?
The procedure will take about an hour, depending on the area being treated and the extent of correction desired.
What is the downtime after the Profound Lift?
You can expect swelling and bruising along with minor redness along the treatment area for approximately five to seven days after the procedure. You may or may not also develop small red dots or bumps on your skin due to a natural reaction to the insertion points of the micro needle used in the procedure. All of these will go away within three to five days. You can expect to return to normal activities 5 days later or more. Any minor redness, swelling or bruising from the treatment can typically be covered with makeup after 48 hours.
When will you see results?
Patients begin to see results in as little as two weeks and the full benefits of the Profound Lift can continue to improve over the following six to nine months after the procedure. The results can last up to four years.
How many treatments will you need?
One treatment is all it takes. Profound treatments have a 100% response rate for wrinkles and a 95% response rate for skin laxity. The results can last up to four years.
