profound rf microneedling

Profound is a minimally-invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen and elastin production. By rebuilding these vital proteins in your skin, this treatment can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and cellulite. It can also improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, giving you a smoother and more radiant complexion.

What Is Profound RF Microneedling?

Collagen and elastin play critical roles in maintaining the structure and elasticity of our skin. Our bodies gradually produce less of these proteins as we grow older, leading to some of the most recognisable signs of ageing, including creases and skin laxity. The Profound system uses RF energy and ultrafine needles to renew skin from within. It may offer a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift or neck lift for patients in the earlier stages of ageing.

Profound can also be used on the body. As a body treatment, it is primarily used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How Does Profound RF Microneedling Work?

The Profound system includes a handpiece with a series of microneedles that create tiny channels in the skin. These channels trigger your body’s natural healing response, which builds new collagen and elastin. Simultaneously, RF energy travels through the microneedles into the deeper skin layers. Delivering RF energy into the dermal (second) and subcutaneous (third) layers helps tighten and lift the skin and remodel cellulite.

Who Are Sydney Profound RF Microneedling Treatments For?

In general, radiofrequency microneedling is an option for all genders, ages and skin types. Some of the reasons patients choose Profound over other procedures include:

  • Less painful and invasive than surgery
  • More manageable downtime than surgery
  • Can improve signs of ageing in patients who are not ready for surgery
  • Can help preserve the results of a surgical procedure

Because the Profound system is versatile, we can use it to delay signs of ageing for patients in their 30s and 40s, and also to treat signs of ageing for patients in their 50s and beyond.

Profound may not be suitable if you:

  • Have certain skin conditions
  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have certain underlying medical conditions
  • Have more advanced concerns than a nonsurgical treatment can address

Our experienced aesthetic providers will help you understand what to expect from this treatment and what a typical result looks like. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to raise them during your consultation. We are here to help you make informed decisions for your skin.

How Are Profound RF Microneedling Treatments Performed?

The typical Profound treatment takes about an hour to complete and follows these steps:

    • The provider cleanses the skin and administers an anaesthetic to reduce discomfort
    • The provider adjusts the depth of the needles and intensity of the RF energy to target specific areas and concerns
    • The provider moves the handpiece in a stamping motion across the treatment area until the area is fully and evenly covered


What Is the Expected Recovery After Profound RF Microneedling?

Expect redness, swelling and bruising after your Profound RF microneedling session. Although downtime is not required, some patients take a few days of social downtime to let their skin settle into a more normal appearance. Side effects typically resolve within a week to 10 days.

It is important to follow the aftercare instructions from your provider to minimise the risk of complications. These instructions may include using gentle skincare products, keeping the area hydrated and avoiding sun exposure. Specific instructions will be discussed during your consultation.

When Will I See Results From My Profound RF Microneedling Treatment?

The results of Profound radiofrequency microneedling are not visible immediately. Because the procedure works by enhancing your body’s natural repair and revitalisation processes, those processes need time to work. Initial results may become noticeable approximately two weeks post-treatment, with more significant results emerging at three months and full results reached at six months.

How Many Profound RF Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?

The recommended number of Profound treatments varies depending on the individual’s needs and goals. Most patients can expect to see results after a single treatment. Some patients may choose to have additional treatments to enhance their results further.

Profound RF Microneedling FAQ

Does Profound RF microneedling hurt?

The level of discomfort varies depending on the individual’s pain tolerance and the areas being treated. Though we cannot anticipate what your unique experience will be, we can assure you our team will do everything possible to maintain your comfort. This includes utilising topical or local anaesthesia and adjusting the treatment intensity as needed.

How long does Profound RF microneedling last?

The skin tightening effect of a Profound treatment can last for up to two years, and textural improvements may last longer. You can prolong your results by maintaining a consistent skincare routine with high-quality products and wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more daily.

How does Profound compare to Secret?

Secret is another RF microneedling treatment. We offer both options because they have different advantages. Secret is typically a more comfortable treatment with less downtime that works best as a series. Profound can involve more discomfort and downtime because it is a deeper treatment, but the tradeoff is that it can achieve results in one session. Your provider will help you decide which option to choose.
