Profound does not require multiple treatments. As an early adopter and advocate of radio frequency (RF) devices, I now have extensive experience with the Profound RF device and have been very impressed with the technology. Using micro-needles, Pround precisely controls the temperature end point in the skin to effectively generate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. You see improvement in skin texture and elasticity. In many cases, you see significant tightening along the jawline and neck. It seems to work in all ages including those over 65 years in age. In my opinion, it is less painful to perform and more effective than Ultherapy . They are also coming out with a different needle configuration that will treat cellulite. It is a real step in the right direction for the promise of non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

Profound Non-Surgical Facelift One treatment only
The Profound treatment does not require more than one treatment to see effective tightening on the face, and body. The treatment involves microneedles that deliver RF energy directly to the dermis with parts of the needles insulated for safety. We are seeing remarkable improvement in skin texture, facial contour, less jowls and improved mid face. It can be combined with fillers, skin care, laser resurfacing. Compared to Ultherapy, there is no pain and it works much better in the final analysis of photos.
No, one treatment indicated for PROFOUND RF
Needles in the INFINI system only goto 3.5 mm, but is a vertical insulated, compared to 45 degrees for Profound. Downtime following Profound is also longer than Infini.
This is my option, having experience with many RF needling systems, the results are also dependent on the Specialist performing the procedure and patient selection.
