Profound® RF Microneedling
As we age, collagen levels begin to decrease, elastin production stops, and hyaluronic acid begins to diminish. We need all 3 of these building blocks for a youthful appearance we can feel confident about. Profound RF microneedling at our Austin, TX, practice is clinically proven to rebuild the skin matrix by increasing collagen levels up to 2x and elastin levels up to 5x, all while increasing hyaluronic acid.
This FDA-cleared device offers unprecedented treatment options for those who want to treat wrinkles, skin laxity, or cellulite without surgery or prolonged social downtime. Unlike other RF microneedling treatments, Profound RF only requires a single session to see great results.
What is Profound RF Microneedling?
Profound RF microneedling is an advanced, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. It combines the collagen induction therapy of traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to provide long-lasting facial wrinkle reduction and skin tightening on the face, neck, and body.
Profound Cellulite Treatment
RF energy also smooths irregular contours caused by cellulite and skin laxity. Profound is the first and only microneedling device with FDA clearance for the face and body that reduces the appearance of cellulite in unwanted areas with as little as a single treatment.
What Does Profound Treat?
Profound treats a number of different concerns on the face and body, including:
- Sagging jowls
- Skin laxity under the neck
- Double chin
- Loose or sagging skin on the body
Other options for treating a double chin include KYBELLA®, which dissolves fat under the chin. If you are looking for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction, you may also want to consider a laser skin resurfacing treatment. At your cosmetic consultation, our experienced aesthetic providers will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for you.
What to Expect During Your Profound Treatment
Your provider will start by applying a local anesthetic to make sure you are comfortable throughout your session. He or she will then pass the device over your skin, creating tiny punctures and delivering RF energy into the deeper levels of your dermis. Depending on the number and size of the areas you are treating, your procedure may take between 1 and 3 hours. The face and neck typically take 90 minutes to treat, whereas cellulite treatments typically take 2.5 to 3 hours.
What Is Profound RF Recovery Like?
You can expect about 7 to 10 days of social downtime after a Profound treatment. Redness, swelling, and mild bruising are common but typically subside on their own within about a week. You may be able to camouflage any remaining redness with makeup and return to office work in just a few days.
How Long Do Profound Results Last?
You will likely notice gradual improvements in your skin over the course of a few weeks as collagen remodeling takes place. Most people find their results last between 1 and 5 years.
