What if we told you could achieve facial rejuvenation, without any surgery or excessive downtime? With Syneron Candela’s advanced Profound device Dr. Brace now offers patients an advanced micro-needling treatment—without the need for surgery.

What is Profound?

Profound is a genuinely unique handheld device that is clinically proven to recreate the essential building blocks of the skin: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The natural production of these elements decreases as we get older, giving way to signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Each of these signs can be effectively improved with Profound’s two treatment heads (SubQ and Dermal)

Improvements include:

Lift: Drooping areas of the face are lifted, such as the brow, cheek, eyes, jowls and neck.

Contour: Sagging or loose skin along the chin and jawline is tightened to create a more contoured appearance.

Smooth: Plumps the skin from the inside out to correct an uneven skin tone. Regenerates skin’s natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in just one treatment. Wrinkles and fine lines are significantly reduced.


How does Profound work?

Profound works through the use of two types of energy: temperature controlled radio-frequency (RF) and fractional RF. Each accomplishes the same task—stimulating neocollagenesis (collagen), neo-elastogenesis (elastin) and hyaluronic acid—but in different dermal layers. With temperature controlled RF, five pairs of electrode fitted micro-needles deliver the energy into the skin’s dermal layer. This creates a controlled fractional injury that stimulates new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, without disrupting the epidermis (surface layer).

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

All in-office treatments, procedures, and appointments have resumed. At Guelph Facial Plastics we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVID-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.
  • You must call from your vehicle upon arrival before entering the clinic. We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. For your safety, all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to continue to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments.
  • Cosmetic surgery has not resumed at Guelph General Hospital, however, we are pleased to offer our patients the option of undergoing surgery at a Clinic 360 - a fully-equipped private surgical center.

We look forward to continuing to help our patients look and feel their best! We encourage you to reach out to our office now to schedule your appointment.
