About RF Microneedling
Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee utilizes an exceptional technique that produces excellent outcomes for our patients' skin using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with Profound RF technology. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for their skin tightening effects. This specific type of therapy utilizes heat to stimulate the creation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid deep within the skin to maximize outcomes. With a clinically proven 100% response rate, we frequently incorporate this innovative process at Nuveau Plastic Surgery into our Houston, TX patients' skin care treatments to create healthier, smoother, and more luminous complexions.
What is Profound® RF?
As a minimally invasive treatment option, Profound utilizes microneedling and radiofrequency technology to increase skin elasticity for a younger-looking appearance. By helping to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, Profound is ideal for diminishing the look of sagging jowls, loose skin on the neck and/or body, a double chin, cellulite, etc. With no need for surgery, injectables, or significant downtime, RF microneedling with Profound heats the skin to a controlled temperature and emits energy to permeate deep into the skin, promoting the rebuilding of elastin and collagen.

The Profound ® treatment won the prestigious MyFaceMyBody 2018 New Treatment of the Year Award.

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 2018
If you're 35 years old or older and are beginning to find discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems (which include age and sunlight exposure), Profound RF microneedling might be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent option if you want to:
- Firm your skin, creating a more refreshed look
- Enhance skin feel, pigment, and tone
- Repair skin imperfections like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Treat acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look
Microneedling utilizes an instrument (with small needles at the end) that's rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. Although this process is usually done on its own, combining this innovative method with Profound radiofrequency technology has enabled us to maximize the outcomes for our Houston, TX patients.
This method is quite straightforward. The Profound applicator works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden micro-needles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes on the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels which offer cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect
Your Profound RF treatment will be performed in the Nuveau Plastic Surgery facility with the use of a numbing solution to minimize any discomfort. During your procedure, the Profound device will glide over the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should anticipate minute pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as skin heals over a month after having a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results are often noticed after one procedure, and additional treatments are typically not needed.
