Profound Microneedling RF

Tighten and Rejuvenate Aging, Loose Skin 

What is Profound Microneedling RF? 

Profound is a microneedling and radiofrequency device from Syneron Candela. It uses surgical-grade needs to penetrate the skin at different depths and precisely apply radiofrequency to layers of the dermis. Combining these two processes can simulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid through neocollagenesis. What is neocollagenesis? Thermal damage to existing collagen creates a wound-healing effect and creation of new collagen. When the deeper layers of the dermis are heated to 65 degrees Celsius (149 degrees Fahrenheit), it causes collagen to wholly denature and signals the body to regenerate the skin’s building blocks. However, researchers have found that rather than fully destroying collagen, it could be partially denatured and still create the same amount of new collagen.

Benefits of Profound Microneedling RF 

Other radiofrequency devices have used the science of neocollagenesis, but were not able to control the exact temperature and depth to partially denature collagen. These devices heated the dermis within a temperature range to prevent thermal injury to the outer layers of the skin. 

Profound has been developed to consistently penetrate the skin between 2-4mm at the exact temperature (67 degrees Celsius) necessary to partially damage collagen. This consistent precision allows Profound to provide superior skin tightening and results that rival a facelift. 

The Profound Microneedling RF Procedure 

Profound does not involve general anesthesia, incisions, or sutures. Patients can resume all normal activities within 24-48 hours.
