Richmond Skin Tightening Treatments

Reduce jowls & rejuvenate your appearance with Profound

Starting to notice a little sagging under your chin, folds around your nose and mouth, or what looks an awful lot like the beginnings of jowls around your jawline? Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing the smooth, firm skin you once took for granted—with Profound, it’s possible!

Profound is a clinically proven, non-surgical skin tightening treatment that applies radiofrequency (RF) energy directly to the skin’s deeper layers to increase collagen production, accelerate natural skin cell turnover, and help your lower face and neck get a natural lift without surgery or downtime.

Why consider Profound skin tightening?

There are plenty of skin tightening treatments on the market, but not all of them work for every patient. Profound is different. Unlike treatments that send energy through the skin’s surface—where it may or may not reach the intended tissues optimally—Profound delivers RF energy subcutaneously, using ultra-fine needles, so we can be sure we are targeting just the right zones to safely and effectively.

Profound can treat:

  • Reduce mild to moderate jowling
  • Smooth and tighten skin beneath the chin
  • Reduce wrinkles on the cheeks and lower face
  • Visibly improve skin tone and texture

Not only that, but Profound’s technology is shown to work faster and achieve more dramatic effects than other skin tightening treatments. It is the only treatment that heats skin to precisely the right temperature, for precisely the right amount of time, to partially denature (a.k.a. break down) skin collagen, but not fully break it down. Why does this matter? Partially denatured collagen heals faster and achieves a more pronounced improvement in skin tone and texture once healed.

Additional benefits of Profound include:

  • Non-surgical, in-office treatment using local anesthesia only
  • Achieves up to 37% of what a facelift can for tightening neck skin and reducing jowls
  • It works for nearly every patient. Profound was effective for reducing wrinkles in 100% of patients and tightening skin in 95% of patients in clinical studies)
  • Little to no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities within 1 day
  • Smoothes skin surface in addition to tightening deeper tissues
  • A superb safety profile. Mild post-treatment swelling is the only common side effect
  • Most patients achieve satisfying results after just one treatment.

What to expect with Richmond Profound treatments

We perform Profound skin tightening as an in-office treatment at our Richmond plastic surgery practice. After reviewing your treatment goals and medical history, we will apply local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. The Profound handheld device is then placed on the skin, where RF energy is delivered in brief intervals through very small needles.

Following treatment, you may notice some swelling and tenderness, but there are usually no activity restrictions. Some patients prefer to lay low for a couple of days until any visible swelling subsides, but you can go right back normal as soon as you feel comfortable doing so.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

Results appear gradually after Profound. Most patients notice improvements within 2 to 4 weeks of treatment, with final results in about 6 months. While Profound can help turn back the skin aging clock by a few years and even postpone the need for a facelift, but the natural aging process will eventually catch up. Patients are typically satisfied with the effects for 1 to 2 years. At this point, they may choose to have another treatment or pursue other options, such as facelift surgery.
