For those dealing with wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, there are quite a plethora of options to reduce their appearance, from simple-but-not-as-effective methods like anti-aging serums to methods that give the most dramatic results yet are intensive, such as facelift surgery. Two popular options are the use of radiofrequency and micro-needling. Both of these are non-invasive options yet offer good results. Profound RF uses a combination of these two methods in order to tone and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles as well as helping to tighten up sagging skin.
How does it work?
Profound RF makes use of two effective anti-wrinkle methods in order to deliver stronger results. Microneedling involves the usage of numerous tiny needles to make many tiny “injuries” to the skin. In order to heal, your skin naturally begins producing collagen. In this way, the skin is essentially being pushed into repairing itself to be stronger than before. Radiofrequency uses heat to tighten skin. This further triggers the skin’s wound-healing abilities. In Profound RF, this heat is delivered through the microneedles, therefore getting deeper within the skin for stronger results. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are all stimulated into production.
Who can get Profound RF? How can it help?
You must be over the age of 18 to get treated with profound RF. It can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It can also help with cellulite. It’s ideal for use on the face, under the chin, and to remedy loose skin or cellulite on the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Profound RF works on all skin tones and skin types.
What is recovery like?
Side effects are usually mild. They may include some swelling, redness, and/or mild bruising as your skin recovers. These symptoms usually last a few days to a week. There is very little downtime required after this procedure. Most activities can be resumed after a day of rest.
When will I see results with Profound RF?
Mild results will usually be visible once any side effects clear up. However, skin will continue to tighten during the next 3-6 months after treatment. This is because the skin continues to heal itself from micro-needling and radiofrequency by producing collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. This means results show up gradually but will be all the more natural-looking because the healing is coming from within. Just one procedure is often needed for effective results, although patients may opt for a second round a few years down the line.
