Not Ready For Plastic Surgery? Profound RF Is For You
WellMedica Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Medicine now offers a solution for patients looking for more dramatic and lasting results than available with no downtime, multiple treatment radiofrequency, but who are not ready for the invasiveness of plastic surgery. The Profound treatment provides optimal patient outcomes without the downtime associated with a traditional facelift.
What is Profound RF?
The Profound system is a radiofrequency (RF) energy-based device that is FDA-cleared for both face and body and is clinically proven to create close to five times the elastin and twice the collagen in a single nonsurgical treatment. Used as an alternative to plastic surgery, the Profound treatment provides facial wrinkle reduction and improves the appearance of cellulite. Profound uses patented technology to deliver a clinically proven, energy-based process that induces the body’s natural healing response to regenerate not only collagen and hyaluronic acid, but elastin. Elastin is what allows skin to snap back to its original state after being pulled on.
What makes the Profound system unique?
The Profound system is the first and only RF microneedling device that is FDA-cleared for the face and body. It is also the only RF microneedling device equipped with real-time temperature control, which allows highly predictable results. This advanced technology allows for:
- 1 nonsurgical treatment with a 100% response rate for facial wrinkles.
- 1 nonsurgical treatment with a 94% response rate for cellulite.
- Creates up to 5x the elastin to bring the snap back to aging skin.
- Naturally reproduces collagen to revitalize your skin.
Are there any side effects?
Patients will typically experience swelling for approximately one week after a Profound treatment. There may also be bruising. Minimal to moderate redness is to be expected with resolution within a day.
When will I start seeing results?
Optimal results are typically observed beginning at 3 months after treatment and continue for a full year. Results are very long lasting – some patients that have had a past facelift report that it lasted longer that their facelift. For most patients, only one treatment is needed but if another treatment is desired, it is recommended to wait a full year after the first Profound treatment.
Is there any pain?
A local anesthetic is given to the areas prior to treatment so there is no pain during treatment.
Is there any downtime?
A Profound treatment is associated with less downtime as compared to a surgical facelift. Patients will typically experience swelling for approximately one week after treatment and there may also be minimal bruising.
