How does Profound skin tightening work?

Our cellulite reduction treatment in NYC tightens body skin in just one 60-to-90-minute session. Profound works by delivering bi-polar radiofrequency energy directly into the deeper dermal tissue using specialized, insulated microneedles. The treatment triggers a cascade of natural regeneration and healing that promotes new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, and is the only device on the market that does it all.

The Profound microneedles are coated at the tip to ensure the RF energy penetrates to the subcutaneous layers of the skin and does not damage the skin surface. Now patients can achieve smoother skin and reduce the lumpy appearance of cellulite without undergoing surgery or long downtime.

How Profound is different: Advanced technology for skin tightening

Many devices are on the market, but most produce RF bulk heating or microneedles that don’t penetrate at the depth necessary for collagen stimulation, often with unpredictable and non-quantifiable results. Profound’s unique cutting-edge technology elevates skin-tightening to the next level by delivering RF energy at a precise depth, temperature, and duration. Profound RF is the only aesthetic procedure that has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite, increase volume, and smooth skin texture – with an impressive 100% response rate. Profound RF stimulates the following three fundamental pillars of healthy skin:


Profound RF promotes a process called neocollagenesis – the formation of new collagen. It can be used on the thighs, arms, stomach, and banana roll to firm, lift, and contour sagging skin, and smooth lines and wrinkles.


Youthful skin has good skin elasticity, which declines with age. Profound revitalizes elastin fibers in the dermis, helping the skin spring back, like healthy, youthful skin.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural sugar molecule that provides the skin with plumpness and hydration. Profound RF is the only device that boosts natural levels of HA in the skin.

Can a Profound treatment be combined with other treatments?

Cellulite reduction in NYC can be combined with other treatments such as liposuction and J Plasma skin tightening. Profound treatment is unique in that it is the only FDA-approved device for the treatment of cellulite. Liposuction does not treat cellulite or tighten loose skin.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes approximately one to two hours, depending on the size of the areas being treated.

What is the recovery like?

It is normal to experience some mild bruising, redness, and swelling in the treatment area. These are temporary and should completely resolve after five to seven days.

How soon will I see results?

You will see results in about three weeks following your Profound skin tightening treatment, with improvements in skin quality continuing for six to nine months.

What is the difference between Profound and other RF microneedling devices?

Profound is different from other traditional RF microneedling devices in that it is FDA-approved for the treatment of cellulite. Another advantage is that only one treatment is needed.
