Profound RF vs. Thermage – which is right for you?

RF Microneedling, West Malling, Maidstone, Kent

Serums can only go so far, and as more of us explore ‘tweakments’, A reliable route to looking fresh at all ages lies with non-surgical skin tightening – the process of stimulating collagen production through an energy-based device to successfully balance, enhance and celebrate your individual facial architecture. One such device is Profound RF which takes a no-nonsense approach to tightening the skin on the face and body. But how does it compare to Thermage, another skin tightening device that also harnesses the power of radiofrequency, and which is right for you?

What is Profound RF?

Redefining our approach to skin tightening treatments, Profound RF is an advanced technology that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. It utilises micro-needles to administer tiny pinpricks into the dermis to effectively resurface and remodel with minimal trauma to the skin’s surface. When it gets there, the energy is converted into an intense heat (67 degrees C) that triggers the desired wound healing response, spurring growth of those all-important building blocks, collagen, and elastin. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face are remodelled to reveal a tighter, more youthful, and beautifully balanced appearance.

There is certainly nothing more transformative than tightening and resurfacing skin that has lost its fight with ageing and gravity, especially without pain, surgery, and downtime.

Where can it treat?

Profound RF is a powerhouse treatment that can effectively improve anything from a slack jawline and turkey neck to cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. It has been FDA approved to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, and texture, and tighten areas of skin laxity on the face, neck and body. Profound RF can even reduce the fat pad under the chin to reduce a double chin and lift and define the jawline.

How quickly will you see results?

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. Only one treatment is required and results last for 2 to 3 years.

What is Thermage, and how does it compare to Profound RF?

Thermage is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that is used to tighten skin on the face and body. It works by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin’s dermis (under the surface layer) and stimulate new collagen production. Unlike Profound RF, Thermage does not include microneedling technology, so it doesn’t work as deeply and it heats up the skin more superficially. Profound RF can be used to give a more significant lift to the jawline and has precise treatment targeting, whereas Thermage is less targeted and more widespread. Thermage requires multiple sessions for optimal results.

Which is right for you?

Is your skin feeling ravaged by the sun, worn out from life or simply in need of a refresh? Is your jawline softer than before, or is a double chin creeping in? If so, Profound RF may be the MOT your face has been looking for. It can safely benefit all skin types and tones, addressing various skin concerns. As well as its skin tightening benefits, Profound RF can resurface the skin, so if sun damage and dark spots are an issue, you should expect a clearer, brighter, more evenly toned complexion post-treatment.
