Skin wrinkles jump from 33% to a whopping 87% as an occurrence between young and middle-aged women. As we age, our skin changes. Fine lines and wrinkles appear, and the skin’s appearance becomes less smooth.
There are many products and treatments that improve the appearance of aging skin. One such treatment is Profound RF Microneedling. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles, and also improves the appearance of scars, and even tightens skin. It is a non-invasive procedure with little or no downtime.
In this article, we’ll discuss what Profound RF Microneedling is. What to expect during and after treatment, and how it benefits aging skin.
What Is Profound Rf Microneedling?
Microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy are two skin rejuvenation procedures available at Gentle Aesthetics Med Spa in Braintree, MA. Both treatments stimulate collagen production. This stimulation of collagen improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Combining microneedling and RF energy produces more collagen remodeling than you’d get with either procedure alone. Our clients show a significant increase in collagen production after one session, which leads to long-lasting results.
Six months after treatment our clients still observe significant improvement in their skin. The combination of microneedling and RF energy is safe, effective, and achieves dramatic results. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require anesthesia.
A small hand-held device delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin. The micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
What to Expect During Treatment
When you go for treatment, your Gentle Aesthetics Med Spa registered nurse will cleanse your skin and inject a numbing agent. This minimizes any discomfort during the procedure. They will then will use the microneedling device to create micro-injuries in the skin.
Radiofrequency energy is delivered through the needles, which heats up the skin’s collagen. The heat helps to stimulate the production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The entire procedure takes about an hour. Most people report feeling warmth during the treatment, but there is minimal discomfort.
After the procedure, your skin will be red and swollen. This is normal and should resolve within a few hours. For some patients, the redness and swelling can last more than a few hours. Most people experience bruising for a few days or longer. It is important to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen after to protect your skin.
What Are the Benefits of Profound RF Microneedling?
Profound RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that produces significant results with our clients. It improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. It also improves skin texture and tightens loose skin. The procedure is safe and effective, with minimal side effects.
One of the major benefits of this procedure is that it can be done in a single session. There is no downtime, and you can expect to see results within a few weeks. The results are long-lasting, and you may only need one or two treatments to achieve your desired results.
Profound RF Risks
There are some risks involved, though they are rare and our team does everything possible to minimize them, that you should be aware of before trying the microneedling treatment. The process can damage the skin’s barrier, leading to dryness, redness, and burns. It could cause hyperpigmentation, where the skin produces too much melanin and becomes darker.
Profound RF Recovery
Anyone who has ever undergone a cosmetic procedure knows that the recovery process is just as important as the procedure itself. Depending on the treatment, our clients are instructed to take it easy for a few days or even weeks.
It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions given to you by your aesthetician. Avoid sun exposure, wear sunscreen, use a gentle cleanser, avoid strenuous activity so as to minimize sweating, and moisturize your skin.
Profound RF Microneedling Cost
When it comes to cosmetic procedures, the cost is always a major consideration. RF microneedling is an affordable option when compared to other treatments such as laser resurfacing.
The average cost of RF microneedling depends on the size of the treatment area and your individual needs. To receive a custom treatment plan, please contact us for your free Profound RF Microneedling consultation.
What Conditions Does Profound RF Microneedling Help?
Profound RF microneedling is used to treat a number of different conditions. These include, but are not limited to, the following.
Profound RF Microneedling for Cellulite
Cellulite is a common problem that affects millions of women around the world. Although there is no cure for cellulite, there are many treatments that help improve the appearance of dimpled skin. RF microneedling is often used in conjunction with other cellulite treatments, such as massage and topical creams.
Profound RF Double Chin
A double chin makes even the thinnest person look overweight. RF microneedling is used in conjunction with other treatments, such as fat-reducing injections. The combination helps to break down fat cells and tighten the skin.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which leads to loose, sagging skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles discussed earlier. Microneedling tightens loose skin and improves its appearance.
Acne scars are a common problem for people who suffer from frequent breakouts. Profound RF helps with this. It helps with the scars and other hyperpigmentation issues you may face.
Enlarged pores are caused by a number of different factors, including genetics, age, and sun damage. RF microneedling reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, giving you a smoother, more even complexion.
Dull and Sagging Skin
Dull skin is caused by sun damage, aging, and poor diet among other factors. Sagging skin is common with age, weight loss, and pregnancy. RF microneedling helps brighten dull skin and tighten sagging skin, improving its appearance.
