If you’re looking for firmer, smoother skin, wrinkle reduction, or simply a more lifted appearance, Profound® Skin Tightening may be the solution you need. Profound is a radio frequency treatment that tightens the skin, while restoring volume and elasticity for a younger looking appearance. My Houston Surgeons are some of the only skin rejuvenation specialists in the Houston area to offer this highly advanced skin tightening technology.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Profound® skin tightening utilizes radiofrequency (RF) injectable energy to improve skin’s tone and texture. This non-surgical treatment can also eliminate unwanted sagging or drooping skin, because it boosts collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to the targeted areas. Profound is effective and safe for all skin types and ethnicities and is the only device of its kind with FDA clearance for face and body.1
Areas that can be treated include:
- Any area with loose or sagging skin or cellulite

Candidates for Profound RF
Profound RF may be right for you if you are seeking a non-surgical solution for mild skin laxity, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Profound is ideal for people who are beginning to be bothered by visible aging, but are not yet candidates for a surgical facelift. Contact us to schedule a consultation appointment to learn if you are a candidate for Profound RF.
How Does Profound Work?
Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, which are the building blocks of healthy skin. However, the production of these elements slows as we age. Profound RF uses well-established microneedling methods along with revolutionary radiofrequency therapy to achieve dermal remodeling and increase production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in order to revitalize the skin. The result is smoother, firmer skin with improved tone and texture.
Preparing for Your Profound Procedure
The first step is a consultation appointment with one of our highly experienced plastic surgeons. We will assess your skin and discuss your goals in order to determine if you are a candidate for Profound RF. If this procedure is right for you, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan and give you detailed pre-procedure instructions.
Your Profound Procedure
Profound RF does not require general anesthesia or any incisions. The treatment area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Your doctor will apply the specialized Profound device, which utilizes very fine microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy.
Profound RF Recovery
After a Profound treatment, patients typically experience four to six days of downtime. This is due to swelling, but after the swelling recedes patients are free to resume normal activity right away.
Profound RF Results
While some non-surgical skin tightening procedures require multiple sessions, most patients can achieve their desired results with just one Profound RF treatment. Results are progressive as your body gradually begins to produce more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Patients often notice initial results after several weeks and optimal results approximately six to nine months after treatment.
