Microneedling is one of the most effective ways to firm up and tighten loose skin. Collagen and elastin are two of the proteins that help skin stay firm and plump, but as we age, the production of these two proteins diminishes. Microneedling treatments, such as the Profound skin treatment, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. When the production of these two proteins is stimulated, they can gradually improve the skin’s texture and firmness.
What is Profound RF?
Profound RF is a skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency, or RF, with microneedling. Profound skin treatment can be used on any part of the body, but Profound RF is most often used on the mouth, cheeks, and neck.
Each treatment begins with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area, and a medical professional will press a handheld device onto the skin. There are tiny needles in the device which penetrate into the skin while the device generates heat. This device is moved over the skin until the entire treatment area has been covered. The tiny holes that the needles insert and go in emit the radiofrequency to tighten up the layers of the skin. The procedure takes about an hour,and usually requires only one treatment
