Profound Skin Tightening

What if you could tighten and lift the skin on your neck and face without surgery? Profound skin tightening is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that offers dramatic results for lifting and tightening the skin, while simultaneously plumping and smoothing the skin and improving the skin quality, with only one non-surgical treatment. Dr. Benjamin Stong and our team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, now offer Profound skin treatments for our patients that want a non-surgical option for a more youthful appearance.

As you get older, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Less elastin and collagen are produced, resulting in poor skin quality. The skin becomes thinner, with less volume, and loose. It no longer forms to the face, but droops through the cheeks, jowls, chin and neck. Surgically, facelifts address this issue, removing excess or stretched skin, and lifting the skin and muscle to a more youthful position. However, facelifts do not improve skin quality and thickness that is lost. Profound skin tightening can have a similar effect by tightening the skin, but with the added benefit of improving skin quality for softer, thicker skin that looks more youthful.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we embrace new technology and techniques that can benefit our patients. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong, is excited to offer Profound skin tightening to improve the structure of the skin for aging patients. This treatment can be used as a prelude or substitute to a surgical facelift, giving natural results without the use of fillers, neurotoxins or surgery. It helps stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which repairs aging skin. It can also help erase acne scars, rejuvenating the surface of the skin.

What is RF Microneedling Skin Tightening?

Profound skin tightening uses a combination of microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy to stimulate rejuvenation of the skin. The process is performed using a handheld device that emits RF through tiny needles. The needles penetrate the skin to deliver RF heat energy at the right depth and for a specific amount of time. With the needle penetration and treatment with RF energy, the skin begins to produce more collagen and elastin in response. As this process progresses in the skin, it becomes tighter, reducing loose skin and defining facial features. Lines and wrinkles smooth, sagging is less pronounced, and the volume of the skin looks more youthful.

The time needed for this procedure depends on the size of the area that is treated. In most cases, a facial treatment will take about one to two hours. We numb the skin before the treatment to reduce any discomfort. After the treatment, recovery is about five to seven days, with some swelling, bruising, redness and flaking of the skin as it heals. Results can begin to be noticeable in about two weeks, with maximum results achieved between six and nine months.

Our clinic uses Profound RF microneedling skin treatments for a variety of skin conditions. You can learn more about the options for treating these conditions on the following pages, including how Profound can be advantageous for improving the skin's appearance:

If you are looking for a treatment that can give your skin a youthful boost, repairing and tightening it for smoother, tighter, younger skin, Profound treatments using RF energy may be the right choice for you.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
