Can Profound Replace a Surgical Facelift?

When looking in the mirror, do you ever find yourself pulling back your facial skin and wishing it would bounce back to where it was decades ago? When you look as youthful and vibrant as you feel, it can send your self-confidence to new heights.

Cosmetic surgery has been helping people reverse the signs of facial aging for many years. Many people believe a facelift is the only way to produce dramatic, long-lasting, and beautiful results. However, facelifts are also invasive surgical procedures that comes with risks, complications, and time spent in recovery. Many people aren’t willing to commit to all the ups and downs that come with the process.

Fortunately, there have been substantial advancements in non-surgical cosmetic procedures in recent years. At The Maryland Institute of Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeons now offer Profound® radiofrequency microneedling, a non-surgical alternative to the facelift, delivering rejuvenating results without incisions or sutures.

Keep reading to find out more about this breakthrough technology, and we’ll show you what it is, how it works, what its benefits are, and whether it’s a good option for you.

What Is Profound in Maryland?

Profound RF microneedling is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift facial skin without surgery. When administered to the face and neck areas as an in-office procedure, Profound dramatically improves the skin and helps you look years younger without surgery or downtime.

How Does Profound Work?

A single Profound treatment by the plastic surgeons at The Maryland Institute of Plastic Surgery stimulates the natural reproduction of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These are the building blocks that have kept your skin smooth and elastic over the years, and Profound revitalizes them all, helping build new, healthy tissue.

When applied to the face and neck areas, the Profound radiofrequency treatments tighten the skin and improve volume and skin elasticity, especially around the jawline and the creases and wrinkles around the mouth. In other parts of the body, Profound can also reduce the dimples we see with cellulite, another unwelcome sign of the aging process.

Are There Any Side Effects of Profound?

With treatments administered using a small, handheld device, patients can go home shortly afterward. You can expect some minor side effects, including bruising and swelling, for three to five days. Fortunately, you can conceal this with makeup.

What Are the Benefits of Treatment With Profound?

Profound can give you many of the positive advantages of facelift surgery, but without the need to go under the knife. When considering the benefits, it’s not hard to understand why it has become one of our most popular anti-aging treatments.

  • Stimulates the creation of the skin fundamentals: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid
