While you do experience some swelling, especially if it’s your first time – there is typically little to no downtime with dermal fillers. It takes a couple of days for the product to settle in the face before true results are recognized, however that should not inhibit any regular activities.
ProfoundRF treatments are minimally invasive with an expected downtime was 5-7 days. Your face and neck are numbed with a topical cream before administering injections, a mixture of tumescent and lidocaine with epinephrine (to help with bruising).
The Profound RF treatment is performed using a handheld device with 10 tiny needles that deliver the magic skin rejuvenating radiofrequency to the face and neck. The whole treatment takes a mere 45 minutes with only mild discomfort. The face and neck will be covered with tiny red dots where the needles were inserted. You will leave the office wearing a ‘face bra’, which helps with the bruising and swelling.
Profound PF effects appear gradually with some improvement seen in just two weeks and the maximum result in a 4-6 month range.
Additional Details: Getting the middle man of insurance out of the equation allows Dr. Hoffman to provide the optimal patient care without the restraints that insurance places on the physician-patient relationship. As such, we do not bill any insurers for our services. Dr. Hoffman does not fill out paperwork for insurance companies, nor does he complete worker’s compensation paperwork or disability paperwork. For the latter, please see your primary care physician. Upon request we can provide diagnostic codes that allow you to submit claims for reimbursement. Diagnostic testing may be submitted to your insurance, or you may opt for reasonable cash pay options through our partners.

Patient-focused medicine, also known as concierge or membership medicine, is an alternative practice model. It is based on a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. Doctors limit their patient panel in order to ensure direct availability and adequate time for each patient. These extended, unrushed visits enable physicians to spend meaningful time with patients, build relationships, and provide more comprehensive, proactive care than in traditional practices.
