The Profound RF microneedles deliver the exact desired temperature to an exact depth for the required time period, all while protecting the upper layers of skin from unwanted heat. The superficial layers of the skin also benefit due to the physical act of the microneedling.
We know from clinical research that when the dermis is heated to 67 degrees Celsius, collagen is “partially denatured.” This leads to neocollagenesis-a scientific term for new collagen synthesis by the skin’s fibroblasts. However, both temperature and time are important for stimulating collagen- with the “sweet spot” for skin tightening being 67 degrees Celsius for 4 seconds. With these specific parameters in mind, Profound RF’s technology creates the most optimal conditions for skin tightening.
Injectable lidocaine is used to make the Profound RF procedure very comfortable. The lidocaine injection uses very tiny needles, but there is only a brief stinging sensation.
For TruSculpt 3D there is usually no anesthetic required.
The following is expected after a Profound RF treatment:
Makeup can be worn after 24 hours to cover bruising or any marks from injections/needling.
Exercise can resume after 48 hours or as directed by your provider.
