As we all are eager to put 2020 behind us and get back to some sense of normalcy, we have a newfound appreciation for our health and wellness. And for some, well-being means looking as good as they feel.

“Our patients are going to emerge from quarantine looking better than they ever have,” says Dr. Michael Yerukhim. “For those who want to refresh their appearance, now is the perfect time to invest in facial rejuvenation procedures that you otherwise wouldn’t or couldn’t have done.”

“It is more convenient to schedule these procedures now that we don’t have social engagements and are staying home with more downtime,” he adds. “Plus, we are wearing masks so nobody will notice that you had a recent procedure while any redness, bruising or swelling subsides.”

If you want to rejuvenate your face but think plastic surgery is too extreme and fillers are not enough, Profound RF is the ideal anti-aging treatment.

This innovative skin-tightening procedure combines radio frequency energy with microneedling to reach deeper layers of the skin and stimulate the body to create more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid—the building blocks that keep skin looking smooth and youthful.

It is minimally invasive, performed in the comfort of an office, and there is no physical downtime. Plus, it is a one-time treatment.

“In surgery we can lift, tighten and move things around, but with Profound RF we can actually improve the quality of the skin itself, making it healthier, tighter and more youthful,” explains Dr. Yerukhim.

“The Profound RF treatment is used to reduce sagging, loose skin of the upper and lower face,” he says. “It can also be complemented with other treatments—like micro liposuction—creating truly impressive results.”

And it costs about the same as a few syringes of filler, though those results last only about six months while Profound results last for years. It also costs a fraction of the price compared to a surgical facelift.

One of Dr. Michael Yerukhim’s patients is shown here six months post-procedure.

“It takes about six months to see full effects from the procedure because you are stimulating your own cells to rejuvenate the skin,” explains Dr. Yerukhim. “So, if you have the procedure now, you will see full results this summer, when, hopefully, we will be out and about more and socializing again.”

Since the results are gradual and build over time, Profound RF creates a more natural look.

“An ideal candidate is someone who is usually in their 30s to 60s; both men and women can benefit,” says Dr. Yerukhim. “Profound RF procedure is an excellent option for people who are not quite to the point of needing a facelift, but still want to improve their look and skin quality, in a natural but profound way.”
