About Candela Profound

At birth, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that make your skin soft, smooth, healthy, and resilient. Eventually, this stock of nutrients runs low and the skin on your face and body decreases, which can lead to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tightness and overall appearance of your skin without surgery, you may be interested in Candela Profound RF microneedling nonsurgical skin tightening and fat reduction at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA. Utilizing advanced technology and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Profound encourages the production of elastin and collagen in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the assessment and consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals before scheduling your treatment. For patients who want to firm the skin on their face and body without the recovery time and expense of a surgical lift, schedule a consultation with one of our facial plastic surgeons in Boston, MA.

Ideal Candidates

Surgical skin tightening or "lifts," like facelifts, are still the most effective option to improve sagging, loose skin. Profound RF nonsurgical skin tightening and fat reduction can help if you don't wish to have plastic surgery or if you want to enhance the results of your facelift or mini facelift procedure. Profound can be performed on most areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, arms, and thighs. The ideal patients for this procedure:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
  • Have light to medium skin looseness on the body or face
  • Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
  • Want to improve the health and appearance of their skin

Procedure Technique

Before your Profound procedure begins, we will clean the treatment areas to eliminate any oil and lotions. Options for anesthesia can be discussed, and our AAAASF certified facility allows the flexibility to offer the treatment with either local anesthetic or IV sedation.  Most patients feel that any pain during the treatment is temporary and manageable.  After your skin is cleaned, the Profound RF handpiece will be passed over the treatment area slowly and precisely for the most efficient session. The RF microneedling energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin and destroys fat cells. The procedure can take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas being treated. Once the procedure is complete, you'll be able to leave and get back to your daily routine.

What to Expect

Following your Profound session, the treated areas can be slightly inflamed, numb, or red. This is normal, and you should heal naturally within several days to a week. During your initial consultation, we will discuss methods to care for your skin after your procedure, such as keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun and environmental damage. Many patients cannot see visible results right after the treatment. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can have the final results of your treatment about 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, your results should be long-lasting and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin.  Since aging continues to occur even after the treatment, you may choose to repeat treatment at least a year after your initial Profound radiofrequency microneedling treatment. During your consultation, we can help you determine your unique plan based on your concerns and goals.
