How much is Profound RF? And How Does the Treatment Compare to Morpheus8?

Smoothness, youthful radiance, firm, plump and taut skin – all skin goals that many of us hope to maintain as we age. But sometimes, in order to achieve them, we need to go a little further than just skincare. Enter RF microneedling – a technology that can provide truly dramatic lifting and tightening to the lower face and neck when received via the right device. And two of the most commonly sought-after devices are the Profound RF and Morpheus8.

Needle and knife-free, these treatments don’t add anything to the skin. Instead, they work more naturally to kick-start collagen and elastin production deep within the skin, making it smoother, brighter, tighter, and more radiant. They can help to tighten jowls, smooth lines and wrinkles and even minimise pigmentation.

So how much should you expect to invest in one of these treatments and what can you expect to see in terms of results?

What is the Profound RF?

The Profound RF is an advanced technology used to treat sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles and excess fat on the face, neck and body. It combines microneedling and radiofrequency technologies for an advanced skin tightening and rejuvenating effect. The only available proven technology capable of generating all three components of healthy skin – collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – Profound RF heats the deeper skin tissues to stimulate skin repair optimally.

Typically, RF devices heat the lower layers of the skin (the dermis) to 42 degrees C, but the Profound RF delivers more powerful energy heating the tissues to 67 degrees C, therefore stimulating a much stronger response.

What results will you see?

In clinical trials, Profound RF was found to deliver 1/3 of the result of a surgical facelift in just a single treatment and had a 100% response rate for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

You will notice an immediate skin-tightening effect following treatment, but since we’re stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis, the true results are progressive. Most patients can expect to see significant improvement three months post-treatment. However, optimal results can continue to develop for up to one year following treatment.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the Profound RF at Illuminate Skin Clinic is £2,800 for a typical treatment. This includes treatment of the lower face and neck areas. Since most patients require just one treatment, the Profound RF can provide an effective alternative to the surgical facelift and with significantly less downtime.

The Profound RF isn’t your usual skin tightening treatment – it’s doctor-led and requires approximately one week of downtime as the skin heals. However, as a one-off treatment that produces results lasting several years, this is to be expected.

How does it compare to Morpheus8?

In terms of price point, Morpheus8 sits in a similar ballpark to the Profound RF since it can cost up to £650 for a single face and neck treatment, and 3-4 treatment sessions are recommended for optimum results, compared to just one with the Profound RF.

In terms of ability, the Profound RF is four times more powerful than the Morpheus8. It delivers energy deeper into the tissues and for a longer amount of time, allowing us to achieve optimum protein denaturation within one single treatment. This means that the Profound RF increases the production of elastin by about five-fold, we double collagen levels in the skin and dramatically increase hyaluronic acid levels.

This translates into tighter skin that’s regained its youthful bounce, a significant reduction in lines, wrinkles and sagging jowls, and the Profound RF can even reduce the fat pad under the chin to lift and define the jawline.
