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 an anti-aging treatment 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.
How Does Profound RF Work?
Regular microneedling improves skin texture and firmness by creating microinjuries in the surface that increase collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. Profound RF boosts this effect by releasing RF energy through the tips of the needles deep into the underlying layers of the skin. Heat from the RF energy causes constriction and tightening of the skin and stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production deeper than microneedling alone.

Is RF Microneedling Better Than Microneedling?
RF energy makes the effects of microneedling penetrate deeper into the skin. The results from Profound treatments develop faster and are more dramatic than microneedling alone; however, Profound requires at least a week of social downtime, while microneedling alone does not.
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 Many Profound Treatments Will I Need?
Patients typically attain the results they want with just a single treatment.
How Soon Will You See Results?
Results may become noticeable as early as 2 weeks after a Profound RF treatment as new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid gradually develop. It typically takes 3 to 6 months to reach final results.
How Long Do Profound Results Last?
Most people find their skin remains firm, smooth, and younger-looking for about 1 to 5 years. Using a high-quality sunscreen, avoiding direct exposure to the sun, and following a healthy lifestyle all help extend the life of treatment results.
