For people who look in the mirror and think they could really use a facelift, the term “radiofrequency microneedling” probably doesn’t also come to mind as a treatment that can make a big difference for sagging facial skin. And that’s too bad, because Profound RF microneedling is one of the leading treatments we offer, and can be an excellent non-surgical facelift solution.
Profound wins out over surgical facelifts because it’s much less invasive, has a much shorter recovery time, and still delivers noticeable skin tightening for a more youthful look. Let’s take a closer look into all it has to offer:
Less Invasive than a Facelift
Profound is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a combination of microneedles and radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tightness. It involves extremely small, controlled punctures to the skin, which typically heal quickly. In comparison, a facelift requires a doctor to make incisions, reposition underlying facial tissues, and remove excess skin. It is a more invasive procedure compared to Profound RF microneedling and requires anesthesia.
Quicker Recovery Time
Recovery after Profound treatments takes only a few days, with most people experiencing temporary redness and mild swelling. Makeup can often be applied within a few days, and our patients can typically resume regular activities relatively quickly.
Radiofrequency microneedling can provide noticeable improvements in skin texture, tightness, and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, though the results are not quite as dramatic or long-lasting as those that can be achieved with a surgical facelift. Multiple sessions are often required for optimal results.
Recovery after a surgical facelift is longer and more involved. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort can persist for several weeks, and it may take several months for the full results to be apparent.
The Best Candidates
Radiofrequency Microneedling is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate signs of aging who want to improve skin texture and firmness without undergoing surgery. It works particularly well along the jawline to improve skin tightness and reduce jowling. We can evaluate all of your skin concerns and help you determine which options are best suited to your individual needs and expectations.
