Who is a good candidate? Who is NOT a candidate?
An ideal candidate for Profound RF is someone that is interested in tightening and toning loose or sagging skin, restoring facial volume, and improving appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Typically, we recommend avoiding this treatment if you currently have a skin condition that's active, like a breakout of acne.
How is the treatment done?
During the procedure, a handheld device is used to deliver RF energy deep into the skin, where it stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The device also includes tiny needles that are used to deliver the RF energy, which creates micro-injuries in the skin that further stimulate collagen production. Profound RF is a relatively quick procedure that typically takes about one hour to complete. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure, although a local anesthetic may be used to numb the treatment area. After the treatment, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness, but these side effects typically subside within a few days.
How long does it take to notice results and how long do the results last?
Profound RF is a safe and effective treatment that produces noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and firmness. Most patients see results within a few weeks of the procedure, and the results can last for several years. However, as with any medical procedure, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine if Profound RF is right for you.
Why do the procedure/benefits?
Starting in our mid 20’s, elastin starts to break down, becoming less elastin and losing its spring. think of a lumpy mattress as the springs become old and lose their ability to recoil. Profound is a clinically - proven* treatment that builds elastin and collagen. By carefully heating the skin’s elastin and collagen to an exact temperature for an exact amount of time, Profound leads to the creation of new elastin and collagen to repair aging skin. This results in skin that is younger, firmer, and altogether healthier. Also, take note that the Profound RF treatment is safe for pretty much all skin types and is fully approved by the FDA.
How long is recovery? What does it look like? (Bruising, swelling, etc.)
One of the advantages of Profound RF is that it doesn’t require you to have a lengthy downtime, as you would with any kind of plastic surgery. However, you may still experience mild redness, swelling or bruising for the first several days following your appointment.
How often do you have to follow up/maintenance?
While some non-surgical skin tightening procedures require multiple sessions, most patients can achieve their desired results with just one Profound RF treatment.
