Profound RF is a treatment that takes advantage of two powerful tools for anti-aging. These are radiofrequency and microneedling. By combining these two, skin can experience profound benefits in only one treatment. But who can benefit most from Profound RF? And who shouldn’t use it?
Who should get Profound RF?
Wondering if it’s right for you? This treatment works for most people in good health between the ages of 18 and 65 who are looking for help with the following issues.
Those with damaged skin due to aging: It tightens the skin and triggers the skin to produce more collagen. When the many tiny microneedles pass through the skin, they make tiny “injuries.” Collagen is then signaled to be produced to come to the rescue of this injured skin, causing tightened skin and less visible wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but it also increases hyaluronic acid and elastin in the skin.
Those with cellulite: In addition to the face, Profound RF can be used on parts of the body that have cellulite, such as the buttocks and thighs. It is the only RF microneedling device with FDA clearance to be used on both the face and body. 94% of people who used it to combat cellulite saw a reduction in the appearance of their cellulite after only one treatment.
Those with damaged skin: If your skin is looking worn due to things other than age, Profound RF can still help. Common causes of premature aging include sun damage and smoking. These can cause a person to have what appear to be signs of aging despite being relatively young or can cause the extent of a mature person’s skin damage to appear worse. Even though this damage is not due to aging, Profound RF can still help by the same mechanisms through which it combats aging.
Who should not get Profound RF?
There are a few categories of people who should not get this treatment. As stated above, the age range is 18-65, so those above or below this range should ask for alternatives. It is also not advised for use by pregnant women. Lastly, it should not be used on those with keloid scarring (a type of raised scar) or a history of keloid scars.
