Profound is a revolutionary new energy-based facial treatment designed to create new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. All without surgery, fillers or toxins, Profound dramatically improves aging skin, so you can look years younger.
The Profound procedure
Each Profound session is performed in one of the private treatment rooms at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation. A local anesthetic will be applied prior to treatment, for maximum patient comfort. The procedure will take less than an hour, depending on the area being treated and the extent of correction desired.
To begin, the provider will gently maneuver the Profound handpiece across the target area. Profound uses a small applicator, filled with a disposable cartridge made up of radiofrequency energy needles. As the small needles meticulously penetrate the target skin, heat from the energy will address deep layers of tissue. The warmth from the radiofrequency energy will then stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Only one Profound session is required for exceptional results. There is some downtime necessary after a Profound treatment. Patients can expect mild redness and swelling along the treatment area, although this normally resolves in three to five days. Bruising, and small red ‘dots’ are normal, as well.
The results from a Profound treatment are not immediately seen. Over the following weeks, as the body’s production of collagen and elastin are increased, the skin will become smoother, fuller, and firmer. Patients can begin to see initial improvements in as little as two weeks. The full benefits of Profound can continue to improve over the following six to nine months. The results of the treatment can last up to fours years.
Dr. Dreveskracht did a great job listening to what I wanted done, and her staff have been nothing but gold. Going into surgery, the team exuded competence, caring and a warm sense of humor. Check-ins have been regular, and Dr. Dreveskracht made sure I was able to contact her in case of emergency. My healing has been fast and uncomplicated, and results are everything I could have asked for.
I have consistently had excellent experiences when I come to this office. I have been a patient for 4 years and I count not recommend anybody more.
Working with this doctor and staff has been the most amazing experience I have had in my health experience. They are thoughtful, caring, concerned, supportive , attentive and always make time for my needs. I was just commenting to someone that I wish this office could serve as my PCP and that I definitely got more than my money’s worth from the preop to the procedure to the aftercare. They are phenomenal and I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone! So super pleased!
