Our board-certified plastic surgeons perform more than 1,000 surgeries each year and have more than 50 years of combined surgical experience.

Although we love plastic surgery, we acknowledge that it isn’t always the right time for surgery. If you’re not ready for surgery or are looking for non-surgical options, come see us. In addition to our surgical procedures, we perform more than 3,000 non-surgical treatments each year. Surgery or not, we can help you look your best.

But if your shelves are stocked with hyaluronic acid serums, collagen creams, and elastin treatments, and you still aren’t seeing the results you want, Profound could be the loss of skin elasticity treatment for you. It doesn’t just infuse the skin with the essential building blocks for beautiful, rejuvenated skin, it also helps your skin to create them. This treatment will help you to produce your own collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for profoundly stunning skin. Who needs a hyaluronic acid serum when you can make your own? Call today and ask about Profound.

What Is Profound and How Does it Work?

Profound is a new way to treat aging skin and an effective loss of skin elasticity treatment. It is a minimally invasive radiofrequency energy system that utilizes microneedle electrodes to deliver energy deep into the dermis. It is clinically proven to create hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. It can build a new, solid foundation of dermal volume, improving the appearance of your skin from the inside out.

Treat Loss of Dermal Volume Without Fillers

One of the biggest age related changes to your face is a loss of dermal volume. This causes the skin to appear sagging and loose. In the past, our primary loss of skin elasticity treatment options were surgery or using dermal fillers. Profound gives us another minimally invasive alternative. This treatment increases dermal volume, tightens skin, and boosts skin elasticity without fillers or Botox. This treatment is an excellent option for patients who want a more natural solution to aging.

What to Expect from a Profound Loss of Skin in Elasticty Treatment

H/K/B is excited to offer Profound treatments to our patients in Charlotte and Huntersville, NC. This treatment is non-surgical and minimally invasive. The specialized device allows us to deliver powerful radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, through special microneedling probes. This jumpstarts the body’s healing processes and encourages remodeling of the skin matrix.

Treatment begins with a topical anesthetic. This increases comfort during the procedure. We’ll use the Profound device to deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin, through special microneedling needles. The treatment can be performed on the entire face, for a full facelift, or can target specific trouble spots like around the eyes, jawline, or mouth. Treatment takes about an hour, depending on the areas treated. Patients return home same-day to recover.

Some downtime is needed to recover from a Profound treatment. Plan on missing a few days of work. Swelling and redness are common and typically resolve in a few days.

Results appear in the weeks after treatment, as the body’s levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid increase. Initial improvements are seen after a few weeks and the skin’s appearance will continue to improve for up to 6 months after treatment. Only one session is needed for long-lasting, dramatic results.

Is Profound the Right Loss of Skin Elasticity Treatment for Me?

We are excited to offer this revolutionary, new treatment to our patients! Profound is an excellent choice for many and may be recommended to patients with:

  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Jowls
  • Double Chin
  • Facial Wrinkles
  • Loss of Dermal Volume
  • Loose Skin on the Face and Neck
  • And Much More!

Some patients may find out that their facial aging is more advanced and that the Profound might not be right for them to reach their goals.  That’s okay!  At H/K/B, we specialize in some of the most complex facial surgeries available today. 

Facelift surgery is one of the top cosmetic surgical procedures for patients over 55.  The goal of a facelift is to rejuvenate the mid and lower face. We accomplish this by tightening and strengthening supportive facial tissues, removing excess skin, and redraping facial tissues. Each procedure is highly customized, ensuring a natural looking, individualized result. We find that patients typically look 10-15 years younger after the procedure while maintaining their unique facial appearance.

In addition to a traditional facelift, H/K/B offers a MACS lift, or mini facelift. Our surgeons also provide revision facelift surgery for patients that are unsatisfied with their facelift results from other providers.

Downtime after a facelift typically takes 1-2 weeks, depending on the type of facelift selected and the extent of the procedure. Bruising, swelling, and tenderness are common symptoms during the recovery period.

If you’re considering facelift surgery, come in for a consultation and explore your options with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. We can help you decide if you’re ready for surgery and guide you through the entire process.
