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.

"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
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
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.
