Sagging skin happens as the skin loses elastin and collagen, making it looser. There are several available remedies for this; each one uses different methods to help. One possible treatment to get your skin tight is Profound RF. Here’s how it works.
Profound RF makes use of two different modalities of anti-aging skin treatments: radiofrequency and microneedling. Both contribute to getting your skin tight in different ways.
Microneedling: Many tiny needles pierce the skin, causing micro-injuries. This triggers the skin to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to repair these micro-injuries. Together, collagen and elastin tighten skin, while hyaluronic acid hydrates it. Altogether, they help to reduce sagging and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Radiofrequency: This heats up the skin, tightening and stiffening it. This is delivered through microneedles, meaning the tightening goes deep down. In addition, just like with microneedling, heating of the skin further triggers collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
Where can profound RF be used?
Profound RF can be used to reduce sagging and wrinkles in the face and neck. It can also be used on parts of the body that have cellulite. These can include the thighs, buttocks, and belly.
Are there any side effects of Profound RF?
Profound RF is one of the best available treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, but it does have some side effects. Due to the microneedles, it’s common to experience some redness as well as swelling and bleeding on the face. This should go away within about five days, but the skin will be sensitive in the meantime.
