Frustrated by the visible signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin? Unfortunately, noticeable skin changes can start as soon as your early 30s, thanks to the natural decline in skin proteins.
The good news is that non-surgical treatments, like the revolutionary Profound® RF, can turn back the hands of time — without the downtime required after surgery or the pain associated with more invasive therapies.
Our aesthetic specialists at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa in Spring, Texas, and serving clients across The Woodlands, have compiled this guide with everything you need to know about this innovative skin treatment.
When you’re younger, your skin stays firm and tight. This is due to the long, sturdy bands of collagen fibers that make up most of the connective tissues in your body.
Collagen is produced in the middle layer of your skin, where it combines with other cells, like elastin. The more collagen your body makes, the more new skin growth you experience. It also plays a role in healing injuries.
As you age, there’s a natural decline in your body’s production of collagen. Reduced collagen production shows up in your skin in different ways, including:
The good news is that non-surgical treatments, like Profound RF, can tighten your skin. They boost your body’s collagen production, which naturally tightens your skin and takes years off your face.
Profound is the first FDA-approved radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment that addresses sagging skin and other skin imperfections. This amazing treatment tightens lax skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other noticeable signs of aging.
Profound RF stimulates your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen — three building blocks that form the foundation of tighter, younger skin.
Microneedling creates tiny wounds so small they don’t bleed. But these microtears signal your body to start the healing process, calling on your body’s collagen production to repair the surface cells.
Then, Profound RF sends concentrated amounts of RF energy to the deepest parts of your skin. Since this innovative technology allows the energy to reach the layers of your skin responsible for key protein production, it stimulates more collagen so your skin remodels itself from the inside out.
Clinical studies show Profound RF tightens skin and adds much-needed volume to areas affected by aging in 100% of patients. Plus, Profound RF is safe to use on different areas of the body.
For example, we can use Profound to lift the delicate tissues around your mouth and jowls, add volume to your lips and cheeks, tighten the fragile skin on your neck, and make your skin smooth and tight in many other areas.
As your skin remodels in the weeks after your treatment, it smooths and tightens, taking years off its appearance. And results from Profound RF are long-lasting.
Profound RF treatments are generally well tolerated. Expect the first 15 minutes of your appointment to be dedicated to keeping you comfortable with a numbing medicine.
The treatment usually takes less than an hour, and most patients don’t require pain medicine as their skin heals. However, it often depends on the treatment location. Our team offers personalized aftercare instructions.
Most people return to their normal routines and activities immediately after their Profound RF session. You might notice some light bruising or swelling as your skin heals, and some people note their skin is slightly tender.
The best way to learn if you’re a candidate for Profound RF is by consulting with a skin expert at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa. We know everyone is different, and we customize anti-aging treatment recommendations to your unique situation.
