Procedure Details

The Profound Nonsurgical Facelift is a new non-invasive device and treatment procedure that involves the use of precise, thermally regulated, controlled bipolar radio frequency needles that are inserted into the lax skin of the face, neck, brow and body areas to induce tightening and lifting.

The Profound nonsurgical facelift is performed as an outpatient, simply, under local anesthesia and without skin excision.

Profound is used in conjunction with other services, as part of our Nonsurgical Face lift program. The program is comprehensive, looking at skin laxity, texture and tone. The program looks at the face as a whole and corrects all concerns, to create a refreshed, youthful and vibrant appearance.


Before & After


Nonsurgical Facelift patients that undergo the Profound Nonsurgical skin tightening procedure are recommended to undergo a very basic maintenance program to “protect their investment”. The maintenance is usually quite simple. A nonsurgical, non-invasive bulk heating radio frequency thermal stimulation of the skin is performed once every 2-3 months to maintain the Profound lift effect. Maintenance using the non ablative bulking RF such as the FORMA, or Venus Freeze performed 4 times a year can help prolong and protect your Profound nonsurgical Facelift.  

Side Effects

Just as the name suggests, skin tightening procedure offers profound results with very little chance of side-effects or complications.  Swelling and bruising may last several days, and most choose to return to work after a few days of recovery time.


Patients who undergo the Profound Nonsurgical Facelift technique can expect a significant, or moderate, but noticeable tightening and elevation following the Profound Facelift technique. Because this is performed with extreme thermal and pulse duration control, virtually every patient will notice some tightening. The amount of lifting and tightening will be dependent upon the amount of laxity and loss of collagen elastin that had accumulated prior to the procedure, but there is a very high patient satisfaction index with this technique, with properly selected patients. In general, tightening and elevation of 30%, 40% or even 50% can be achieved.


This results of this procedure are longer lasting compared to other treatments.  The Profound facelift device is manufactured by one of the leading laser manufacturers, Syneron Candela and it represents the cutting edge (non-excisional cutting edge) of the non-surgical facelift techniques and procedures. Dr. Mulholland has worked together with Syneron for many years, developing many of their nonsurgical devices and teaches the Profound non-surgical facelift to physicians across the Unites States and Canada.

Additional Procedures

The results can be extended by adding additional techniques such as colour correction IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photofacials, topical energy-based treatments for wrinkles, using fractional devices, such as the eMatrix, Fractora or the “Fraxel like” fractional resurfacing devices, which can be performed at the same time. Even Botox Injectable, Kybella Injectable and soft tissue fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma can all be performed synchronously in the first few days or same time as the Profound Nonsurgical Facelift to extend and enhance results.
