The body produces less elastin and collagen as we age, causing our tissue to naturally lose shape and volume. As the skin begins to sag, cheeks hollow, jowls appear on the jawline, and unwelcome wrinkles and fine lines make us look older. With offices in Eaglewood Cliffs, Old Bridge, and Jersey City, New Jersey, Cosmetic Skin, led by board-certified dermatologist Jeffrey A. Rapaport, MD, PA, is proud to offer Profound®, a revolutionary new radiofrequency wrinkle treatment, to help reverse these frustrating changes, without surgery.
What is Profound® Wrinkle Treatment?
A new break-through technology, Profound® is a noninvasive procedure that uses gentle, energy-based heat to lift, add volume and tighten facial skin tissues. The heat creates a controlled injury to the skin’s deepest layers, which incites a healing response and energizes the body to produce more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid; the key components of youthful skin.
Am I a Candidate for Profound® Wrinkle Treatment?
If you’re feeling uncomfortable about the effects of aging and would like to restore your face to its younger version without surgery, then you are a candidate for Profound® Wrinkle Treatment. Profound® works as a perfect non-surgical facelift.

What Happens Before Profound® Wrinkle Treatment?
For maximum patient comfort, a local anesthetic will be applied by Dr. Rapaport.
The Profound® Wrinkle Treatment
Dr. Rapaport will begin the treatment by lightly guiding the Profound® handpiece across the desired target area. The Profound® handpiece contains small radiofrequency energy needles that penetrate the skin, heat the deep layers of tissue, and stimulate the body to naturally produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Depending on the size of the area that needs treatment, Profound® Wrinkle Treatment can take less than one hour.
Profound® Wrinkle Treatment Recovery
You can expect the treated area to appear red and swollen after undergoing your Profound® Wrinkle Treatment. It will take a few days for the redness and swelling to subside, so you should plan to take a few days off from work, or plan your treatment before the weekend. Makeup can be used as a concealer after the first few days of recovery. All signs of treatment will completely disappear in a few weeks.

Because radiofrequency energy is used, Profound® Wrinkle Treatment is safe for all skin types, including those with Asian, Hispanic, African-American or Indian skin.
How Many Profound® Wrinkle Treatments are Needed?
The best thing about Profound® is that you don’t need a series of treatments. Profound® is a single, one-off treatment.
How Long Does Profound® Wrinkle Treatment Last?
Initial improvements in patients can begin to be seen in as little as two weeks. Over the next six to nine months, the full benefits of Profound® will materialize and results can last up to four years.
Is Profound® Wrinkle Treatment Safe?
Although Profound® Wrinkle Treatment is a relatively new technology, no serious complications have been reported and it is generally considered to be a safe treatment. People with sensitive skin who bruise easily may experience swelling for a longer period of time during recovery.
Is the Profound® Wrinkle Treatment Painful?
The microneedling or heated radiofrequency of the Profound® handheld device may cause some mild discomfort during the procedure, even though Dr. Rapaport uses a local anesthetic. Those who worry about pain should ask Dr. Rapaport about taking an over-the-counter pain reliever before their treatment.
