Profound RF

The Profound RF (radio frequency) is a minimally invasive safe and effective new treatment for dramatically tightening sagging skin of the face, neck and jowls . After administering both topical and local anaesthetic, the treatment involves deploying 5 pairs of micro-needles and delivering a precise dose of radio frequency energy directly into the dermal layers without disturbing the epidermis. Precisely controlled thermal injury only to the treated areas promotes wound healing, dermal remodelling and collagen/elastin formation with minimal downtime to the patient.

With countless RF treatment options being offered in cosmetic clinics, spas and doctors’ offices why choose Profound RF? The simple answer is results. Profound RF technology uses a science-based approach that delivers an impressive 100% response rate for wrinkles and 95% for skin laxity. Accroding to the manufacturer Syneron Candela:

The Profound system incorporates temperature sensors embedded within the micro-needles and realtime temperature feedback algorithm to reach and maintain an optical dermal temperature of 67 degree celcius for 3-4 seconds.

The biggest selling point of the Profound RF is that patients can achieve upwards of 35-50% the results of a facelift without surgery. It’s an excellent option for those who are not interested in or not quite ready for surgery but would like to look more youthful. With Profound RF patients can expect noticeable and consistent results without the risks or recovery time of surgery.

Profound RF Plus Non-Surgical Facelift

A brainchild of Dr. Kuzmar, who has been working with RF microneedling technology in combination treatments since 2010 (one of the first cosmetic physicians in Canada to do so), Profound RF Plus combines the skin tightening properties of radio frequency microneedling with dermal fillers. The “Plus” in this instance is Juvederm’s Vycross line of fillers that are used as part of the treatment to restore volume to areas of deflation such as cheeks, nasolabial lines, jawline and lips. Dr. Kuzmar developed the Profound RF Plus Non-Surgical Facelift to offer his patients one comprehensive treatment to dramatically reverse the signs of aging (wrinkles and sagging) without going under the knife.

The standard protocol of Profound RF Plus calls for one treatment of radio frequency micro-needling to be performed, followed 12-16 weeks later by Juvederm vycross injections. The advantage of performing Profound RF first is to strengthen the demal matrix or ‘scaffolding’ of the skin thereby creating a much stronger support framework for the fillers. With newly created thicker tighter tissue, the dermal filler lifts more effectively, so patients looking to add volume to their mid and lower face can expect a more pleasing and enhanced result.
