Profound RF

Profound RF

Are you looking to go beyond skin injections but aren’t ready for facelift surgery? Dr. Sajjadian is proud to offer a revolutionary new solution to his patients – Profound RF. It combines the benefits of microneedling and radio-frequency skin treatments to provide a step up from injectable and surface treatments without major surgery.

With the power of two procedures, Profound RF can restore youthful fullness to the face and tighten the skin around the cheeks, mouth, and neck. It also can be used to fade stretch marks and scars and reduce the appearance of cellulite. For immediate information, contact Dr. Sajjadian’s Newport Beach office today at (949) 515-0550.

Profound's Benefits

Several benefits that make transformative treatment using Profound RF worth consideration:

Overall, patients in clinical trials for Profound saw a 100% improvement in their collagen production. Think of collagen as the framework inside the skin.  The more your skin has, the less it can wrinkle and sag. Your skin becomes better able to support itself, which is part of the secret to a youthful appearance.

In addition to collagen depletion, sagging and wrinkles are partially due to the loss of elastin, a protein in the skin that allows it to stretch.  Profound RF treatments stimulate your skin to produce up to 5 times more elastin, making it appear more smooth and supple. 

The “RF” in Profound RF stands for Radiofrequency technology, which has been used for years in various cosmetic treatments. It stimulates the skin to tighten and produce important structural and healing compounds using directed waves of energy.

Your body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. The microneedling in the Profound system uses tiny pricks to stimulate skin rejuvenation.  These micro-injuries to the surface of the skin promote healing and skin turnover, revealing a beautiful, youthful look.

With dermal fillers alone, patients can get beautiful results but must return for follow up visits to maintain their look.  In contrast, Profound RF treatments reverse wrinkling, giving you more lasting changes to your skin.

The microneedling method used by Profound RF carries little to no risk of hyperpigmentation. This makes it a great option for people with all skin tones and types. Especially for people with dark skin tones, this treatment reduces the risk of darkening patches of skin compared to other popular options that are more suitable for lighter skin tones.

Traditional procedures like facelifts and neck lifts require general anesthesia and involve multiple incisions. Not all patients are ready or willing to take this step. Fortunately, Profound RF can give you transformative results that will erase years from your face.

Profound RF typically costs a fraction of the price of traditional face or neck lift.  Dr. Sajjadian will be happy to review the details in a free consultation.


“I have worked out all my life, and after 2 children, I couldn’t work off the fat despite consistent exercise. I had never had a surgery like this before. When I came to Dr. Sajjadian, he instantly made me feel comfortable. Almost 4 months later I feel happier and I see the results, with minimal scarring. My stomach looks like it did before I was pregnant.”

“Dr. Sajjadian takes the time to make sure you understand what he’s doing and why. He’s a conservative doctor who doesn’t like to rush thing, because he wants the best results for you as possible. He’s kind, caring, and thorough. I would recommend Dr. Sajjadian to anyone who is interested in considering getting a tummy tuck.”

“I trusted Dr. Sajjadian as I was able to see some of his cases beforehand, and the results were amazing. The Dr. made me very comfortable with what I wanted done. When it came to the surgery, I had very little bruising and swelling, and within 3/4 days I felt great. I have been back to the office since and would use Dr. Sajjadian again if I need any more work done.”

How Profound RF works

To start the procedure, Dr. Sajjadian injects the treatment area with a local anesthetic. Then, he applies a hand-held device to your skin, which delivers radio-frequency heat through several tiny needles.

The resulting skin punctures are just deep enough to create what are called micro-injuries, or tiny holes that stimulate the skin to repair itself.  In total, the treatment lasts about 45 minutes in Dr. Sajjadian’s comfortable Newport Beach office.


The recovery for Profound RF varies by both the location and the intensity of treatment. It’s perfectly normal to have some bruising, redness, and swelling for the first week after the procedure.

Soreness and numbness in the area last usually one to two weeks, and occasionally longer. Patients need to wait three to six months to see the final results.

As soon as six months after a Profound RF procedure, some patients opt to have a follow up treatment.  The results themselves are long-lasting and will fade only along with the skin’s normal aging process. While no treatment can freeze your skin in time, Profound can certainly turn back the clock.

Good candidates for Profound

Good candidates for Profound are patients looking to tighten and rejuvenate their skin. Dermal fillers are effective at adding volume to the face. Profound goes a step further, helping patients who need to tighten and rebuild their skin. Therefore, many patients opt for both therapies.

Overall, patients who choose Profound are looking to take a different approach to skin rejuvenation. Many patients who choose Profound RF have gotten Botox® or Juvéderm® injections for some time and would like to see additional improvement.

Profound RF can be used in areas of the body other than the face. As it is particularly effective for reducing the appearance of scars, stretchmarks, or cellulite, it is often applied to the breasts, upper arms, abdomen, and thighs.

Profound RF Frequently Asked Questions:

Patients receiving Profound RF treatment can expect an improvement equivalent to about 40% of what traditional facelift delivers.

Recovery from Profound involves the regeneration of your skin’s structure and underlying nerves. Recovery from facelift consists of the healing of multiple incisions and the tissue underneath the skin. Many Profound patients can return to work within 1-2 weeks, whereas facelift patients should expect to stay home for 2 to 4 weeks.

The device used in Profound treatment not only delivers the micro-injury effect of microneedling, it also administers heat energy in the form of radio waves.

Microdermabrasion is a skin care treatment usually delivered by an aesthetician at a spa that scrapes away older layers of skin. Profound RF is a procedure delivered by a plastic surgeon that rejuvenates the skin from within.

Both forms of treatment have their place. Fillers (ie. Juvéderm® or Restylane®), as their name implies, fill skin lines from within. Profound stimulates both the renewal and tightening of the skin.

Although Profound treatment is known to stimulate the skin’s production of hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in dermal fillers, whether or not it replaces the need for fillers is individual to each patient.  Dr. Sajjadian can help you determine the best course of treatments.

The needles of the Profound penetrate to a depth of 2mm.  That’s approximately the thickness of an American nickel.
