Profound® Radiofrequency Skin Therapy
Skin Rejuvenation Treatment in Austin, TX
Smooth, youthful skin relies on three ingredients: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, your body produces less and less of these elements as you age. The breakdown of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid makes the skin appear thinner, duller, and more fragile. When this occurs, many men and women turn toward cosmetic surgery or non-invasive treatments like fillers, chemical peels, or ablative lasers. While these can be effective, surgery is invasive, and fillers only provide temporary results.
Profound® radiofrequency skin therapy bridges the gap between surgery and fillers. By combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling, the Profound® system successfully promotes the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to naturally create younger, smoother skin. This system not only improves facial aging but can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

This non-invasive procedure works on both the early and more advanced signs of aging, such as deep lines and wrinkles. Candidates for this treatment are healthy individuals with realistic expectations of their results that are hoping to delay the signs of aging. While the Profound® system provides non-surgical facial rejuvenation for those not wanting surgery, it can also be used to complement prior cosmetic surgery results.
Profound® Radiofrequency Skin Therapy Treatment
Profound® radiofrequency skin therapy improves facial wrinkles and reduces the appearance of cellulite through a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling.
While this is a non-surgical treatment, a local anesthetic is required to ensure patient comfort and safety. During your Profound® radiofrequency treatment, your technician will use a handpiece to deliver pulses of RF energy through microneedles to the deeper layers of the skin or the fatty layers of tissue below the skin. By penetrating and creating superficial wounds deep in the skin, the Profound® system triggers the body’s natural healing response, which in turn stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The controlled injuries to the fatty layer below the skin result in a reduction of fatty tissue, creating a slimmer and more toned appearance in the treated area.
The Profound® system can be applied to the face or areas suffering from the appearance of cellulite.
You can return to work and your normal activities within 24 hours of your Profound® radiofrequency skin therapy. Mild side effects may include swelling, bruising, redness, or soreness in the treatment area. These typically resolve on their own within 10 days.
The results of your Profound® treatment will vary depending on your age, skin quality, and previous medical conditions; however, you can expect a noticeable improvement in facial wrinkles or reduction in cellulite over the next five to six months. This revolutionary procedure provides lasting results because it naturally stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to restore and maintain volume and firmness.
