Learn More About Profound RF Skin Tightening for the Face, Neck, and Chest
As we start aging, our skin loses the elasticity and tightness it once had. Before you know it, your skin looks loose and saggy. Many people would love to regain the youthful appearance of their skin. However, going under the knife is a prospect that not many people particularly enjoy, especially since it comes with downtime and discomfort.
Profound is a radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment used to non-surgically tighten the skin and remove wrinkles – no scalpels or downtime required. According to recent studies, the effect of a single treatment of Profound is equal to a third of the effect of a surgical facelift.
The Profound RF procedure can be performed on the face, neck, and chest to tighten loose skin. The treatment is completed in about an hour. Sometimes, the process may be conducted under sedation if the patient is having the procedure done on a large area.
The Profound RF Treatment Procedure
During treatment with Profound RF, micro-needles are used to create microscopic injuries in the skin layers, which trigger a healing response from the body. This stimulates increased creation of elastin and collagen to mitigate the decreased elasticity of the skin.
Radiofrequency energy is transferred to the dermal layer of the skin with the help of the micro-needles. This heats up the skin and triggers more collagen creation. The more collagen and elastin the skin has, the healthier and tighter it gets.
What to Expect After the Treatment Session
Your skin will typically return to normal in 10 to 14 days. Slight bruising, swelling, and redness around the treatment area are to be expected and usually dissipate within a day. Since the treated area will be tender, you are advised not to wear any clothes or jewelry that could irritate the region.
The Benefits of Profound RF Treatment
This procedure increases the natural elastin and collagen in your skin tissues, which are major building blocks for new cells and volume enhancement. Because the volume enhancement that occurs in your skin is completely natural, you do not have to worry about the procedure’s results looking fake or unnatural.
Profound RF treatment also treats unwanted cellulite on your body to give the skin a smoother and more even look. This treatment is entirely natural, and no foreign substances are involved, meaning there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Profound RF is a cosmetic device with controlled temperature. Usually, these types of cosmetic procedures take place with heated instruments, which can cause an increase in the healing time. Since Profound RF does not require you to heal from the damage caused by unnecessary heat, you can heal faster with fewer post-treatment marks and bruising.
