How Does ProfoundRF Tighten Skin?

Profound RF Skin Tightening works by using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. The procedure begins with the application of a numbing cream to ensure patient comfort. Once the skin is numbed, a handheld device equipped with tiny microneedles is applied to the treatment area. These microneedles penetrate the skin at a precise depth, delivering controlled RF energy directly into the deeper layers.

The RF energy heats the targeted tissue, causing a controlled thermal injury that triggers the body’s natural healing response. This process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which are essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. Over time, the newly formed collagen and elastin fibers help to tighten and lift the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging and wrinkles. The procedure is highly customizable, allowing Dr. Sato to adjust the depth and intensity of the treatment based on the patient’s specific skin concerns and desired outcomes.

The Benefits of ProfoundRF Tighten Skin?

Profound RF Skin Tightening offers numerous benefits, making it an ideal choice for individuals seeking non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, Profound RF is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no incisions, reducing the risk of scarring and complications.
  • Natural-Looking Results: By stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, Profound RF provides gradual, natural-looking improvements in skin tightness and texture.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: Patients can enjoy the results of Profound RF for up to three years, making it a cost-effective alternative to frequent, less effective treatments.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients experience minimal downtime, with some redness and swelling that typically subsides within a few days. This allows you to quickly return to your normal activities.
  • Versatility: Profound RF can be used to treat various areas of the body, including the face, neck, and jawline, as well as areas prone to sagging such as the thighs and abdomen.
  • Enhanced Skin Quality: In addition to tightening the skin, Profound RF improves overall skin quality by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture.

AM I A GOODCandidate?

Good candidates for the Profound procedures are people who have sagging skin especially in the cheeks or jowls, wrinkles along the cheeks and loss of volume around the mouth and cheeks, as well as wrinkles along the upper lip. Profound is good for all skin types as the radiofrequency energy is color blind, allowing this to be a safe treatment for persons with Asian, Hispanic, African American and Indian skin.

Profound is usually one single treatment and is done under local anesthetic in the office setting.

PROFOUND RF SKIN TIGHTENINGTreatment

Profound is a machine manufactured by Syneron utilizing a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed by the doctor on the areas of the skin to be treated. The needles penetrate into the skin and release heat for a specific amount for time at a precise temperature and depth. This stimulates the body to make new collagen and elastin in that tissue.

PROFOUND RF SKIN TIGHTENINGResults & Recovery

Maximum treatment results are seen over a 6–9-month period, results are usually visible in as little as 2 weeks.

After the Profound treatment, you can expect 3-7 days of swelling and redness as well as bruising. In addition, there is an appearance of tiny dotted marks on the treated areas and up to a week of some minor shedding of skin.
