I had read about the Profound (R) micropuncture radiofrequency procedure to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin of the face and neck. The photos looked fantastic, so I contacted Dr. Julia Kerolus, a facial plastics surgeon, to meet with me and explain the procedure and the science behind it and the expected timeline for results. After that i underwent the procedure at her outpatient office in Glenview. The entire process, from entering the room, to the initiation of local anesthesia, to the radiofrequency itself, was exactly an hour. I drove myself home. Afterwards there is facial swelling which recedes in about three days. And now, just six weeks after, i already look younger, refreshed, and smoother. It\’s pretty remarkable how successful this procedure was – definitely worth the effort!!
