What Is Profound-Microneedling RF?

Known as the non-surgical facelift, our Microneedling RF is a revolutionary energy-based, skin-needling treatment. It’s designed to create new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks that keep your skin smooth and elastic. It’s a great treatment for improving aging skin and can also help to reduce dreaded cellulite.

How Does it Work?

Profound-Microneedling RF uniquely combines microneedling and radiofrequency technologies for advanced skin tightening and rejuvenating effect. It works by penetrating the skin at a precise depth with tiny needles, before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy (heat). This stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a tighter, smoother, more lifted appearance.

Who Can Have the Treatment?

Profound-Microneedling RF is suitable for anyone who’s noticing significant signs of aging such as sagging and drooping skin, jowls and pronounced wrinkles. It can also be used to treat cellulite.

What Results Can I Expect?

Profound-Microneedling RF is clinically proven to create younger-looking skin. Studies by Syneron Candela (the manufacturers of Profound-Microneedling RF) show a 100% response rate for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and a 95% response rate for improving skin sagging.

When Will I See Results?

Results start showing in as little as two weeks. Optimum results appear at three to six months post-treatment, once your skin’s moved through its natural healing process. Results may last up to four to five years.

Does it Hurt?

The treatment involves our doctor injecting a local anesthetic into the treatment area before using the Profound-Microneedling RF device. As the skin is numbed, most clients hardly experience any pain during or immediately after the treatment. You will likely experience some discomfort in the days following as your skin starts its healing process, however, we will work with you to manage this and make sure you remain as comfortable as possible.

Is There Any Downtime?

Yes, you can expect about five to seven days of downtime as your skin undergoes the healing process. This is significantly reduced when compared to a surgical facelift which has a long and painful recovery period of up to one month. Our Charlotte, Gastonia, Shelby, Hickory, Lake Norman, and surrounding cities offer Profound-Microneedling RF as a solution for patients who may have developed mild to significant bruising throughout the treatment area.

Bruising is typically most noticeable 24 to 48 hours after treatment and typically resolves in 5-10 days. Tenderness or soreness at the treatment site is typically mild and will disappear within a week.
