Profound RF is a revolutionary skin rejuvenating procedure which harnesses the power of radio frequency (RF) energy to tighten and firm your skin without surgical intervention. The treatment produces an instant lifting effect, and a continued increase in skin quality as natural collagen production is triggered in the deeper skin layers.
What is Profound RF?
Smooth, glowing skin is a universal sign of youth and vitality. When the signs of aging begin to set in, you can develop deep lines and creases, skin appearing loose and lax, jowls, sagging cheeks, and a loss of the plump, firm look associated with healthy skin.
Profound RF is a groundbreaking new treatment to tighten facial contours, stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, and leave you with revitalized facial contours that can leave you looking years younger. If you are interested in the lifting and contouring associated with a facelift but are wary of invasive surgery and the necessary downtime, Profound RF can provide the lifting benefits without undergoing a surgical procedure.
How does Profound RF work?
Profound RF is used to stimulate your body to tighten skin, while simultaneously creating natural volume and restoring fullness. Through use of a specially-designed hand-held device, Profound RF’s applicator has a series of radio frequency energy needles which deliver powerful RF energy deep into the layers of the skin.
The RF energy heats the layers of the skin to a specific temperature to trigger skin regeneration from within. Your body’s own natural processes are activated to produce greater amounts of hyaluronic acid and collagen, giving the area treated a more supple, youthful appearance. At the same time, the elastin and collagen fibers in your skin is tightened, reinforcing its overall structure and contours.
What are the benefits of Profound RF?
As you begin to age, your body loses the ability to produce important skin-firming products, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in the same volume as in the past. These elements give your skin the ability to attract and retain moisture and maintain the fresh facial look you had in your youth. Profound RF uses radio frequency technology to deeply stimulate your body’s natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin restoring volume, tightening the facial skin, and giving your self-confidence a boost in the process.
What can I expect during Profound RF?
Your Profound RF treatment at TrueCare Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa™ begins with the application of a local anesthetic so you rest comfortably during your procedure. Then, the Profound RF’s hand-held device will be passed over the surface of the aging area of your skin, while energy needles penetrate the skin, heating it to a temperature of 149 degrees. This temperature begins a process known as neocollagenesis to build collagen and elastin to a level more consistent with younger skin. The process generally takes 45 minutes to complete.

What can I expect following treatment with Profound RF?
Since our Inland Empire Profound RF is minimally invasive, there is only minimal downtime required following your procedure. You may experience redness, tenderness, and swelling for up to one week following treatment with Profound RF. As the swelling subsides, you may notice tiny pin-sized marks on the surface of the skin where the energy needles penetrated the skin. This is temporary and will dissipate over the coming days. Light peeling as your skin is expected as your skin begins to renew and revitalize which lasts only a few days.
Am I a candidate for Profound RF?
The ideal candidate for Profound RF is experiencing skin laxity especially in the cheeks or jowls, deep wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks, and loss of volume in the mid or lower face. Profound RF is suitable for all skin tones and types and does not create irregular pigmentation in darker skin tones. Women who are pregnant are not suitable candidates for Profound RF. Additionally, men and women who have a history of problems with skin healing or those with pacemakers or defibrillators should not have treatment with Profound RF.
Which areas can be treated with Profound RF?
The lifting benefits of Profound RF are beneficial for treating many areas of the face and body which are experiencing severe skin laxity. While Profound RF is most typically used to treat areas of the face, particularly the mid and lower face where sagging skin is most noticeable, it is also very effective in treating other areas, including:
- Above the knees
- Under the chin
When will I see results from Profound RF?
Men and women who have received our Irvine Profound RF in report seeing results as soon as a few weeks following their procedure. As the weeks pass, you will begin to see lifted, firmer skin, a reduction in wrinkles, a smoothing of jowls, and a more youthful glow. Over the coming months, your skin will continue to produce increased amounts of collagen and elastin giving your skin fullness and a supple quality that is associated with younger skin. Your full results will be visible approximately six to nine months following treatment.
Will my results be long-lasting?
Yes. Treatment with Profound RF produces long-lasting results in just a single treatment. The way you care for your skin and body including avoiding excessive alcohol, smoking, and sunscreen to protect against sun damage all factor into how long your skin tightening results will be evident in the future.
