What is Profound Radiofrequency?
Newport Beach, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi uses an exceptional approach to produce beautiful outcomes for our patients with a treatment called Profound microneedling using state-of-the-art Profound by Candela™. Radiofrequency treatments have existed for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for their skin tightening effects. However, this state-of-the-art therapy uses heat to promote collagen production deep within the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. At Liftique, we often incorporate this process to our Newport Beach, CA patients' skin solutions to produce healthier skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion.

Can I Get Profound Radiofrequency?

How is Profound Radiofrequency Performed?
Before your Profound radiofrequency treatment at Liftique, we will give you local anesthesia. The procedure will then be performed using the Profound device to carefully emit short pulses of injectable radiofrequency energy against the skin to make micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and stimulate the production of collagen. New skin grows as the skin heals, leaving the top layer feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and more rejuvenated. The first FDA-approved microneedling device, Profound microneedling helps you begin seeing results in as little as one treatment. You may experience some swelling, bruising, redness, or soreness at the treated areas; however, this typically doesn't last more than a day. You should be ready to return to work and/or your normal activities within 24 hours of your procedure. Results become visible as the skin heals over the next 3 months.
