Profound® is a radio-frequency micro-needling treatment that has been promoted as a possible alternative to facelifts. Known to reduce signs of aging and offer long-lasting results, many clients choose it since it requires a single treatment, delivers no toxins and requires no surgery.

While all of that sounds great, it doesn’t mean that you should rush out to get Profound treatments. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions, ensuring you understand what you need to know about Profound treatments.

1. What Is Profound?

Profound is a type of skin-needling treatment. The goal of the treatment is to encourage the natural development of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These create the support structures for your skin, filling in areas where wrinkles and other signs of aging have emerged. In some cases, it can also minimize the appearance of cellulite.

2. How Does Profound Work?

It functions through a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency. The needling helps the radiofrequency energy reach a specific depth within the skin layers, using precise penetration before releasing a burst of heat. As a result, the body begins additional production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which, over time, can give the skin a tighter, lifted appearance.

3. What Results Does Profound Deliver?

Although results vary between individuals, Profound is known for its excellent results.

With any treatment, the big thing you need to know is what to expect from the treatment. While every client is different, most will enjoy younger-looking skin. According to Profound manufacturers, nearly all clients will see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and most will also see less skin sagging. The only way to know exactly what your results will be, however, is to get the treatment.

4. How Soon Are Profound Results Visible?

Because Profound does not use any injectables, results take time. While the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid could be triggered instantly, this takes time to build up in the skin. Most clients begin to notice a difference about 6-8 weeks post-treatment. Full results are present in 3-6 months.

5. Does Profound Hurt?

Every client experiences sensations in different ways. Since the procedure involves microneedling, a local anesthetic is used. Once the skin is numbed, most clients will not feel much, if any, pain. However, after the treatment, expect to experience some degree of discomfort. Speak with your treatment provider if you find this discomfort is more than you want to manage on your own.

6. Does Profound Require Any Downtime?

Your skin will look different directly after the procedure, with the healing process typically taking 1 week for redness and swelling to dissipate. However, you are not required to take time off work to heal, so long as you stay out of the sun. It is a matter of what you are comfortable with.

7. How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Most people can achieve their desired results with a single treatment. While the natural aging process will continue to change your face and body over time, Profound should provide long-lasting results.
