What is a Profound treatment like?
ProfoundRF treatments are minimally invasive with an expected downtime was 5-7 days. Your face and neck are numbed with a topical cream before administering injections, a mixture of tumescent and lidocaine with epinephrine (to help with bruising).
The Profound RF treatment is performed using a handheld device with 10 tiny needles that deliver the magic skin rejuvenating radiofrequency to the face and neck. The whole treatment takes a mere 45 minutes with only mild discomfort. The face and neck will be covered with tiny red dots where the needles were inserted. You will leave the office wearing a ‘face bra’, which helps with the bruising and swelling.
Profound PF effects appear gradually with some improvement seen in just two weeks and the maximum result in a 4-6 month range.
How long before I see results with Ultrashape?
Results may be seen in as little as two weeks after the first UltraShape treatment. For optimal results, it’s recommended that you receive three treatments, spaced two weeks apart. Your UltraShape provider will help you decide how many treatments are necessary for your individual needs.
Is there any downtime with fillers?
While you do experience some swelling, especially if it’s your first time – there is typically little to no downtime with dermal fillers. It takes a couple of days for the product to settle in the face before true results are recognized, however that should not inhibit any regular activities.
