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.
2018 New Treatment Of The Year Winner
The Profound ® treatment won the prestigious MyFaceMyBody 2018 New Treatment of the Year Award.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Profound RF Ideal Candidates
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
Profound RF Procedure Technique
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 with Profound RF
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.
