What is Profound Radiofrequency?
Beverly Hills, 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 Hakimi Plastic Surgery, we often incorporate this process to our Beverly Hills, CA patients' skin solutions to produce healthier skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion.
"Breast, face and hand fat transfer - they look how they did when I was younger - I went to Dr. Hakimi for awake fat transfer to the face, breasts and hands (with lipo to the arms and inner thighs). I actually have a second session booked to do 360 lipo and bra roll with a second breast fat transfer (which I’ll decide as we get closer if I actually still need). I am beyond thrilled with the results. I know several people who have booked consults with him after seeing my results. For the face, I had the fat put in my temples, cheeks, under eyes, lips and chin. I’m almost 35 and my face looks like it did when I was in my early 20’s and it looks so much more natural than anytime I’ve ever gotten filler. For my hands, they were bony and now they look refreshed and supple (for lack of a better, less cringy word). As for my breasts, I will say when I was younger I was a full D slash sometimes DD depending on the brand, so I had the basic shape to begin with but they had lost fullness as I slimmed down over the years. I’m about 2 months post opp and I have to say, my breasts look like bazoongas (that’s the medical term, right?). They look how they did when I was younger which is exactly what I was hoping for. I will say, the procedure itself is unpleasant. The numbing part isn’t bad, stings a little but from what I remember Dr. Hakimi has a wiggle-the-skin technique to help distract from the sting. The fat transfer to the breasts you definitely feel and was the most painful part of the day and recovery. I did have a lot of work on a lot of different areas done in one day, so my recovery was probably longer than people who do less. Also, for the face, they will warn you and they are not kidding, the face swelling looks bad for about a week to 10 days. At about 2 weeks my face looked like perfection.Dr. Hakimi was very attentive following the procedure and always answered my text messages very promptly. I’m very type A and have anxiety, so he deserves extra points for being so patient with me."- M. / RealSelf / Feb 15, 2022

How is Profound Radiofrequency Performed?
Before your Profound radiofrequency treatment at Hakimi Plastic Surgery, 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.
