Profound RF Is a Non-Surgical Facelift, Neck Lift, Skin Rejuvenation, and Skin Tightening Solution
When you look back at pictures of yourself from years gone by, you yearn to recapture your youth. But if a facelift or other surgical approaches turn you off, you may want to tune into Profound, a radiofrequency microneedling procedure. As we age our body has a difficult time producing collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid causing many unwanted side effects. Some of these side effects include sagging skin, increased wrinkles, uneven texture, and dull skin.
By harnessing the power of radiofrequency technology with microneedling, Dr. Azar and staff can help you achieve tighter skin and improved texture. Some patients have even compared their results to a non-surgical facelift with its facial rejuvenation and smoothing effect.
Profound RF is minimally invasive, but it delivers maximum results. Jowls and wrinkles may disrupt the elegant lines of your face and neck. They can distract from your appearance and cause viewers to dwell on your age, even if you are young and/or young at heart. Profound is the perfect remedy for mild jowling and ptosis (sagging) of the mid-face and neck. After one Profound treatment, jowls will appear less pronounced as the jawline tightens itself.
To benefit from Dr. Azar’s dedication and expertise, please contact us.

How Does Profound RF Work?
Profound is a minimally invasive treatment with little downtime in order to deliver Profound results. Dr. Azar and his highly trained staff use a handpiece containing microneedles along with radiofrequency technology, which penetrates into the reticular dermis to deliver skin tightening benefits that no lotion or superficial treatments can do. This allows the tissue below the surface to regenerate elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid.
The regeneration of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid will rejuvenate the skin and help give a tightening effect.
Due to the stimulating power of Profound RF, the results from a treatment last far beyond the parameters of your initial session. When collagen and elastin respond to the transformative presence of RF microneedles, the underlying scaffolding of the skin benefits, giving you a more youthful appearance for months or even years to come.
Benefits of Radiofrequency Treatment
Due to the decrease in elastin and collagen over time, your skin is left with poor elasticity, an increase in wrinkles, and an overall sagging effect. However, with the help of Profound, you will enjoy a boost in self-confidence due to a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Profound RF:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Firming around the jawline
- Addresses the presence and persistence of jowls
- Improves the texture and tone of skin
- Overall facial rejuvenation
Men and women who reside in or who are visiting beautiful Southern California may be ideal candidates for Profound RF treatment. Candidates for Profound should be in good health and present with mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles.
By booking a consultation with Dr. Azar and his staff, they will be able to verify that you are a good candidate for this procedure. If not, Dr. Azar is a Plastic Surgeon who offers many alternative treatments from which you may benefit.

Profound RF Procedure
From the moment you arrive for your Profound RF session, we want to ensure your comfort. Prior to administering the microneedling with RF under your skin, our clinicians will provide you with the appropriate local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort to the treatment area.
Once you are properly anesthetized, the microneedles and RF waves will maneuver their way to your underlying tissue. A typical session lasts approximately 2 hours, but cases vary depending on which areas are being treated.
Recovery and Results
Profound RF is an outpatient procedure. Immediately following your session, a clinician will monitor your progress until you are ready to return home. Please assign a caregiver to drive you home, as you should not operate a motor vehicle after receiving an anesthetic (even a local one).
Do not engage in strenuous activity for 24 to 48 hours after a Profound RF session.
The astonishing results of your microneedling radiofrequency treatment will emerge after 1-3 months, reaching a peak of perfection at around the six-month mark. You may enjoy the benefits of Profound RF for two years or more, depending on your skincare regimen and overall wellness.

Complementary and Alternative Procedures
Profound RF is the ultimate happy medium. It is minimally invasive, yet thoroughly transformative. But if you fall on either side of the aesthetic needs spectrum, you may want to explore other rejuvenation options with Dr. Azar as your guide.
For patients experiencing more pronounced skin laxity, a facelift provides true relief. Dr. Azar can skillfully remove excess skin and contour the soft tissue below to reflect a more youthful you.
In order to maximize your Profound results many of her patients will also benefit from injectables as well. Some injectables we recommend include the Juvéderm family of fillers as well as Botox Cosmetic.
Dr. Azar wants to help lift your neck and/or face without making your jaw drop. Medical bills can be expensive, which is why Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa prides itself on transparent pricing.
