Profound Skin Tightening for Face, Neck and Body

We are excited to announce that Dr. Arielle Kauvar is now offering treatment with Profound, the newest minimally invasive skin tightening procedure. Profound tightens skin around the mouth, cheeks, and neck. It is also FDA approved to treat under chin (submental) fat and cellulite. Improvement was seen in all subjects in clinical trials.

Profound uses radiofrequency energy delivered through a handheld device with ultrafine needles that are inserted in the skin to create pinpoint areas of heating in the deeper tissue layers. Heat is released at a precise temperature and depth and the skin’s natural healing response regenerates all of the tissue’s building blocks - hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin to rejuvenate skin by plumping, smoothing and tightening. Treatments take thirty to sixty minutes and there may be redness, swelling and bruising lasting three to seven days. Profound requires one single treatment and maximal results are typically seen three months later.
