Profound RF Microneedling
Conveniently located to serve Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Arvada, Northglenn, Louisville and Erie.
At Original Skin Medspa in Broomfield, CO, we are pleased to offer one of the largest breakthroughs in facial aesthetics. It’s a non-surgical facelift using Profound RF Microneedling technology. This innovative treatment is the first of its kind with the unique ability to create all the building blocks for youthful skin. By delivering temperature-controlled energy through microneedles, the device stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These foundational components are unfortunately lost as we age. Profound Microneedling can effectively reverse the signs of facial aging skin by adding volume and improving the overall texture and quality of skin, clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and restore skin laxity. Studies have shown that the Profound treatment produces 37% of the effect of a surgical facelift.

What is the Profoundprocedure like?
Profound is a quick, single treatment performed in a physician’s office, usually in 45 minutes or less. Your doctor will provide a local anesthetic to manage comfort. The system delivers energy to the deeper skin layers exactly where treatment is most beneficial.
Profound has an excellent safety record. As with any procedure, you should make sure your physician is experienced in performing Profound treatments.
How long will theresults last?
The Profound treatment promotes the natural production of new elastin and collagen and other components of healthy skin over time. Most patients report seeing improvement in 6-8 weeks post-treatment. Because new elastin and collagen require time to fully develop, optimal results will not be observed for at least 3-6 months after treatment. However, there are a number of factors that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age, and how you care for your skin after the treatment.
What can I expect after my procedure?
After a Profound treatment, you can expect 3-7 days of swelling and redness as well as bruising. The desired result is a more lifted appearance, firmer and smoother skin, wrinkle reduction, and improvement in the jowls and sagging skin on the neck. There is also thickening of the very thin skin that makes the face appear more youthful. As the body replaces old collagen and elastic tissue with new collagen and elastin, you will see an improvement over several months. Maximum treatments effects are seen over a 6-9 month period, but beginning results are usually visible in as little as 2 weeks.
Profound, which was developed by global leader Syneron-Candela, boasts a 100% response rate. This treatment can also be used to address other unwanted skin concerns, including improvement in skin texture and acne scarring.
Is a Profound treatmentright for me?
