Profound RF Treatment

What is Profound?

Profound is a minimally invasive bipolar RF system with patented Real Time Temperature Control that utilizes 5 pairs of micro-needle electrodes, deployed into the dermis, to precisely deliver fractionated thermal injuries in the deep reticular dermis, where the concentration of collagen is the highest. Fractionated thermal zones are created within the dermis, without thermal impact to the epidermis. Thermal injury to treated areas stimulates would healing, dermal remodeling and new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid formation, resulting in visible skin improvement.

 

 

How long does Profound Rf treatment take?

Profound usually requires one and occasionally two treatments. It is performed with local anesthesia. Oral sedation may or may not be needed depending on the patient. The treatment takes one hour.

 

 

What is the recovery period after Profound Rf treatment?

There is downtime with Profound. You may have mild redness for 24 hours. You may also have some bruising. Post-procedure discomfort is minimal for most patients. The most common post-procedure symptom is swelling. Depending on the individual, this swelling can last 7-10 days.

 

 

How long will results last?

Though results maybe seen in as little as two weeks, the results are gradual, and the full effect may take up to six months. The lifting and tightening may last for at least 2 years, though the smoothing and volumization may last longer.

 

 

What problems can Profound RF help with?

The most common patients—women and men—are in their 40’s and 50’s. However, for those older patients not desiring a surgical facelift, this treatment is appropriate. It is also indicated in younger patients who have acne scars.

 

Profound is effective for the following conditions:

 

  • Wrinkles
  • Jowls
  • Sagging Neck
  • Loss of lower face volume
  • Acne Scars
  • Crows feet
