PROFOUND RF

WellMedica in Reston, Virginia renew your appearance with Profound RF. Learn more about the treatment below!

WHAT IS PROFOUND?

The Profound treatment is your alternative to surgery for improving the appearance of cellulite, reducing wrinkles, and eliminating sagging skin. As we age our collagen levels decrease, elastin production stops, and hyaluronic acid diminishes. These three skin fundamentals are important in keeping our skin strong, elastic, and flexible. When their levels drop, facial wrinkles may appear.  So it’s no surprise that you are starting to see signs of wrinkles and feeling less confident. But you can do something about it. The Profound treatment delivers a precise time and temperature combination to skin and uses your body’s natural healing process to create new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It stimulates your body to naturally revitalize and smooth the skin’s appearance.

WHAT TECHNOLOGY IS USED FOR PROFOUND?

pro1

Profound is a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and ultrafine needles (microneedles) used to renew your skin from within. It is a minimally invasive bipolar RF system with patented Real Time Temperature and Impedance Control that utilizes micro-needle electrodes, deployed into the reticular dermis or subcutaneous tissue, to precisely deliver fractionated injuries without thermal impact to the epidermis.The use of radiofrequency devices is increasing in popularity as a safe, nonsurgical option to lasting wrinkle reduction. Clinical papers demonstrate that many radiofrequency devices have been proven to be safe and effective in improving tone, texture and tightness of the skin.

There are a wide range of options available to address one or more of these fundamental age-related breakdowns, including topical retinoids, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, energy-based devices and plastic surgery. What all of these approaches have in common is the promise is to “make your skin look younger.” However, some of these approaches do not address issues beneath the skin (i.e., the production of new elastin), therefore only offering a short-term, temporary solution. Longer lasting changes require technologies that work under the skin’s surface, helping to rebuild dermal fibers and modify the overall architecture.

While there are unique nuances among the varying technologies, all radiofrequency devices work by heating and administering energy beneath the surface of the skin to help induce creation of any, or all, of the three fundamentals of skin health – elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Some devices administer energy through a handheld device while others require a small incision and insertion of a tiny needle to target deeper layers of the skin.

Many currently available radiofrequency devices offer real-time control of energy, but the Profound® system by Candela is the only FDA-cleared, long-pulse radiofrequency device that also offers real-time temperature control.

WHAT TO EXPECT BEFORE AND AFTER TREATMENT?

Patients that are undergoing a treatment with the Profound system should be sure to:

  • Hydrate sufficiently (64 fluid ounces daily for one week prior to treatment).
  • Eat a substantial meal pre-treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol for 7 days prior to the procedure to decrease the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid NSAIDS for 14 days prior to treatment.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, please inform your Dr Dima as you may need to be pretreated with an antiviral medication.
  • Discontinue topical retinoids or other skin irritants for a minimum of 3-5 days prior to treatment.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure and use SPF 30+.

Immediately post-treatment the treated area will appear swollen and sunburned red. Pin-point ecchymosis from microneedle insertions will be observed and bruising may be noticed from the local anesthesia injection points.  Immediately following treatment, ice compress with a barrier should be used for the first 30-45 minutes. For next 24 hours, patients can opt to continue with cold compress at 20 minutes on – 20 minutes off intervals every 2 hours for comfort. It is recommended to sleep with head elevated for the first 2-3 nights post Profound treatment. Redness typically resolves within 1-2 days of treatment. Edema and bruising will typically resolve within 5-7 days post treatment.
