What Can You Expect after a Profound RF® Treatment?

Simply Smooth - Woman Applying Moisturizer

Profound RF® treatment is a great way to tighten skin on the face and neck without the need for surgery. In a single treatment, patients can see significant results that last for years. 

Of course, results aren’t the only concern. You need to know what Profound RF recovery is like as well. Here is what you can expect

The Profound RF Recovery Timeline

Day One

On the day of your Profound treatment, you can expect that the numbing solution will wear off within a few hours. At this point, you will notice a sensation of tightness in the skin and possibly some irritation or discomfort. 

You may develop some bruising and see small pink and purple dots on your skin. Do not pick at these. They will go away as your skin heals. 

Week One

Bruising and discoloration might worsen during this first week. You may also notice swelling in the treated area. Both are normal and nothing to worry about. You should elevate your head even at night for the first three days to keep swelling to a minimum and change your pillowcase daily.

During this week, you will need to wash your face twice a day, using a mild cleanser. Use soft cloths, nothing harsh. Keep the skin dry and out of the sun. Apply ice packs as directed.

Expect to spend this week at home recovering, though working remotely is fine. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to work in person after the first few days. Avoid alcohol and smoking. 

After 7 days, you should be able to mostly get back to life as usual, though there may be some restrictions on certain activities. To learn more about Profound and its recovery period, call us at 813-877-8067 or use our contact form to schedule a consultation.
