Profound RF

Even though the development of wrinkles and fine lines is an expected part of the aging process, some things can be done to slow the progress and reduce the appearance of these skin issues. Radiofrequency technology has come a long way over the years, and it offers an effective solution for boosting collagen production and optimizing the appearance of the skin. One of the more popular treatments in the cosmetic industry is known as Profound RF, which is an advanced procedure that uses radiofrequency for skin rejuvenation. This system works with the natural processes in the body, helping to optimize the tone and quality of the skin.

What is Profound RF?

Profound RF is a cosmetic treatment that uses modern medical technology to improve the quality and appearance of the skin. This aesthetic treatment specifically targets facial wrinkles to minimize the appearance of lines that often form due to aging. “RF” stands for “radiofrequency” and offers a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and other invasive cosmetic treatments. Radiofrequency technology stimulates the natural healing responses within the body, promoting more collagen and elastin production. As a result, patients notice significant improvements in their skin's texture, laxity, and appearance. While one treatment can offer noticeable results, most people choose to have a series of treatments in order to achieve optimal results from this modern technology. It is an effective solution for anti-aging because the radiofrequency energy reaches into the deeper skin layers to support components that impact skin elasticity and firmness. One of the undeniable benefits of Profound RF is that the treatment is non-invasive, which means you can improve your appearance without an intensive recovery period after the treatment. In order to achieve the desired results and protect your safety at the same time, it’s essential to ensure that you are working with a qualified professional trained and certified in this treatment.

Traditional radiofrequency treatments are only powerful enough for the radiofrequency energy to reach the top layer of the skin. These superficial treatments can provide some results, but the possibilities are limited, and multiple treatments are needed to see a difference. But Profound RF provides even better results because the controlled radiofrequency can move deeper into the skin. As the RF energy penetrates the deeper layers, it reaches subcutaneous fat and stimulates collagen production most effectively. You can relax on the table while the Profound RF handheld device is moved across the target area during the treatment. Microneedles cause small punctures in the skin and send RF energy into the skin. This combined treatment triggers the healing responses, a natural way to smooth the skin and create a firmer, toned appearance. It is a versatile treatment that can be used to address many cosmetic concerns, including loose skin, sagging jowls, wrinkles, and even cellulite. Each patient receives a customized treatment plan to target their specific concerns and issues. So, it is an excellent cosmetic procedure to consider that can help with many cosmetic problems – creating a revitalized appearance without surgery or invasive procedures.

Section 3: Types of Profound RF

  • Which Profound RF is Right for You?

    If you want to invest in a radiofrequency treatment for anti-aging, then Profound RF is an excellent choice. The technology outperforms other types of RF procedures. The good news is that different types of Profound RF treatments address various concerns. So, the best solution is to schedule a consultation with a provider so you can learn more about your treatment options. A skilled cosmetic expert will assess your skin and offer personalized recommendations to help you achieve the best results possible. Share information about all the skin concerns you would like to address, including problem areas with wrinkles, skin laxity issues, and cellulite. Profound RF is an effective solution for mild to moderate skin sagging, and it is often used to treat areas such as the neck, jowls, and around the eyes. You might choose spot treatments in these areas if you have fine lines and a little bit of sagging. But, if the signs of aging are becoming more significant and you have obvious skin laxity, then a full-face Profound RF might be the right solution. This comprehensive approach can offer full-face rejuvenation. Some patients also pair Profound RF with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers and/or Botox.

  • Profound RF Tightening for Sagging Skin

    The most common use of the Profound RF system is to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of sagging and wrinkles. This minimally-invasive method is a non-surgical solution to create a more youthful appearance. A specialized device is used in the targeted area that leverages two methods of treatment: tiny needles pierce the skin (using the microneedling treatment approach), and radiofrequency energy moves down the needles and into the skin to optimize overall results. This two-fold treatment approach is an effective way to tighten the skin and firm the areas of concern because it stimulates new collagen and elastin within the skin.

  • Profound RF Wrinkle Treatments

    When wrinkles start to form on the skin, it is a sign of declining collagen production and a loss of skin elasticity. It’s normal and expected that collagen will decrease with age, resulting in a situation where the skin no longer has a youthful, firm appearance. If you notice the development of fine lines around the eyes and mouth or lines forming on the forehead, consider Profound RF for treating the wrinkles. This treatment might not erase the wrinkles completely, but multiple treatments can improve the skin overall and minimize the appearance of lines on the face.

  • Profound RF Cellulite Treatment

    No matter a person’s size, it’s possible for the skin to have a dimpled, uneven texture because of the way the skin and underlying fat are connected. The appearance of cellulite can be an embarrassment for many women, which is why cellulite treatments are so popular. Profound RF is an effective solution that reduces the appearance of cellulite. This method sends fractional radiofrequency energy into the subcutaneous layers of the skin, which can smooth out the skin so cellulite is less noticeable. Many patients notice improvements after just one treatment and often choose to pursue multiple treatments to achieve the best results.

  • Profound RF for Skin Rejuvenation

    Do you have multiple concerns about the appearance of your skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and sagging? The benefit of Profound RF is that you can treat one of these issues, and the rest improve at the same time! Since radiofrequency energy stimulates the natural healing responses in the body, overall rejuvenation can be achieved. Instead of choosing one specific target area for treatment, many patients opt for a full-face treatment in order to create a more youthful appearance. Talk to your provider to determine how many treatments will be needed in order to achieve the results that you desire.

Why Profound RF Microneedling?

One of the undeniable benefits of Profound RF is that you receive two treatments during one procedure. Many patients want the benefits of both microneedling and radiofrequency, so they schedule appointments for both of these treatments. Now that Profound RF is available, it means that you can achieve the results of both treatments in a single appointment. The combined approach helps to speed up the results and deliver the best possible skin. As the microneedles pierce the skin, they cause minor injuries that stimulate the natural healing responses. At the same time, the RF energy moves through the needles and deep into the skin, intensifying the healing processes and stimulating an increase in elastin and collagen. This whole process helps to restore the skin and create a younger-looking appearance. The skin tightening benefits are undeniable, and many people agree that they notice an overall improvement in their complexion – including a more even skin tone and appearance. Because it is a minimally-invasive treatment, there is minimal downtime after the appointment. Most people can return to their normal activities within 1 – 3 days. The Profound RF treatment is versatile and delivers long-lasting results since it works with the natural healing processes within the skin.

  • Overall Skin Rejuvenation for a More Youthful Appearance
  • Tightening the Skin to Reduce Sagging and Wrinkles
  • Creating an Even Skin Tone and Texture
  • Minimizing the Appearance of Acne Scars
  • More Confidence and Self-Esteem

What are Concerns for Profound RF?

Since the skin is being injured by the needles and there is radiofrequency moving into the skin, there is a potential risk of side effects. In fact, it is expected that your skin will feel a bit of discomfort after a Profound RF treatment. It’s necessary to create minor damage to the skin in order to jumpstart the natural healing processes that produce a more youthful appearance. Side effects might include redness, swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort. But these side effects usually go away on their own within a few days. In rare cases, it’s possible that the RF energy could cause burns on the skin. But these burns only occur if the treatment is not performed properly – which is why choosing a skilled and experienced provider for your treatments is essential. In rare cases, there is also a possibility of skin hyperpigmentation, which means that the treatment areas could appear blotchy or uneven because of the changing color of the skin. Another potential concern is that the treatment doesn’t deliver the desired results. So, it’s important that patients have realistic expectations about how their skin might change and improve from Profound RF. Talk to your provider about these potential concerns so you know what to expect if you choose this skincare treatment.

  • Side Effects and Skin Sensitivity

    It’s normal and expected that your skin will be a bit sensitive and tender after the treatment. Plan to have a short recovery time so your skin can heal and recover from the treatment. The good news is that this recovery time is much shorter compared to the recovery required after a facelift or other types of cosmetic surgery. In the first few days after a Profound RF treatment, you’ll experience a bit of redness, swelling, and discomfort in the treatment area. Follow post-treatment recommendations to help these side effects go away as quickly as possible. These issues will usually resolve on their own.
  • More Serious Complications: Burns and Hyperpigmentation

    One of the risks of Profound RF is if this technology is misused. When the practitioner doesn’t manage the settings and treatments correctly, based on your skin type and individual concerns, then it’s possible that more serious damage can occur to the skin. These issues might include a change in the pigmentation of the skin, known as hyperpigmentation. Sometimes, these skin discolorations are temporary. But it’s possible to cause more permanent damage. Additionally, there is a risk of skin burns if the radiofrequency levels are turned too high. The best way to avoid these issues is by choosing a skilled practitioner who uses the equipment correctly.
  • Outcome Variations

    While Profound RF can deliver excellent results for many people, the outcomes vary from one patient to the next. It’s essential to have realistic expectations about the possible results of your treatment plan. Mild and moderate skin conditions respond well to Profound RF. It’s possible to reduce the appearance by tightening the skin for more severe skin laxity and sagging issues. But this treatment can’t erase some of these issues completely. So, talk to your provider about your skin type and what you can expect from a series of treatments. Most patients need to have multiple appointments, spread out with a few weeks between, in order to achieve the desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both Profound RF and Morpheus8 are modern and advanced technologies for skin rejuvenation. These procedures both deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin and use microneedling as the delivery method. But there are a few differences between the treatments. With Profound RF, a precise form of RF energy is used so the deeper layers of skin can be penetrated. Specific depths can be reached with customized settings for the microneedles. On the other hand, Morpheus8 uses RF energy with fractional microneedling. So, there is a difference in the way the treatment affects the skin and the precision with which the RF energy is driven into the deeper layers of the skin.
Since Profound RF triggers the natural healing responses in the body, the results from this treatment can last for years. It is considered a long-lasting skin rejuvenation treatment. Many people experience an improvement in the tightness and firmness of the skin and find that the wrinkle reduction benefits can last for several years (or even longer). If you want to extend the results of Profound RF, then consider scheduling maintenance sessions to keep the collagen and elastin boosted in the coming months and years. Also, ask your practitioner about other complementary treatments that might help to boost your immediate and long-term results.
No, Profound RF is not designed to be a fat-reduction treatment. The microneedling and RF energy focuses on stimulating elastin and collagen within the skin, with the goal being to reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin at the same time. But it’s possible that this treatment could affect fat volume due to the heating effects of the radiofrequency energy. If the fat layers are heated, the fat reduction response can be stimulated. But this small change is a secondary effect, not the primary purpose of the treatment.
During the Profound RF treatment, the skin is pierced by fine needles, which can cause pain and discomfort. But the treatment is usually well-tolerated by most patients. It’s common for practitioners to apply numbing cream or gel on the skin before the treatment to ensure the patient’s comfort during the treatment. You might experience a heating sensation from the radiofrequency energy. Other sensations might include tiny pricks or pressure on the surface of the skin. After the treatment, it will feel like you have a mild sunburn. For example, you might have skin sensitivity, a bit of discomfort, and mild swelling. But these side effects will usually go away within a few days. Overall, the pain from Profound RF is quite mild and very well tolerated by most patients.
