In Atlanta



Here at Arslanian Plastic Surgery, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to world-class, cutting-edge techniques. This is why we offer the amazing procedure of ProfoundRF. This treatment is a Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device that rejuvenates and smooths the skin. 

ProfoundRFwas the first device of its kind to receive FDA clearance for use on both the face and body. This system reduces wrinkles and improves cellulite without the need for surgery, or more invasive procedures. The RF energy is delivered to the deep layers of your tissue and creates a carefully controlled thermal effect. This results in immediate and long-term skin tightening. The same RF energy coagulates adipose tissue and remodels cellulite in deeper skin layers, which results in visible cellulite improvement.

In Brookhaven, Georgia, Dr. Brian Arslanian, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, has been using the ProfoundRF device in his practice for years. 

“I’ve seen great results in both men and women of all skin types,” he says. “It’s a versatile device that can be used to improve the face, neck, chest, arms, and legs.”

RF Microneedling Device

What is ProfoundRF?

The Profound radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that uses RF energy to stimulate collagen production. It is FDA-cleared for the treatment of wrinkles, skin laxity, cellulite, and more.

With ProfoundRF, patients who are unhappy with sagging skin or lack of volume around the mouth, cheeks, and neck can even rejuvenate their appearance quickly and easily. The Profound handheld device uses tiny needles to deliver radio-frequency technology precisely where it is needed. The heat released at a precise temperature and depth helps improve your appearance without surgery or extended recovery times.

Sagging skin around the face, jawline, and neck is generally one of the first signs that people notice when aging. Lifestyle choices such as diet and personal habits often act together with intrinsic aging to make our skin age faster than it should. Premature aging can also include photo-aging, which is mostly caused by sun exposure. Explore how ProfoundRF can improve your skin, from your face to your cellulite, by reading below. 

Facelift with ProfoundRF: 

As we age, our body naturally decreases the production of critical proteins that help our skin feel youthful, firm, and smooth. Gravity will slowly pull it downward, and external pollutants will damage the surface. Fortunately, advances in skin care provide people with tons of options to improve their facial skin. With the Profound RF Device’s versatility and powerful, advanced technology, you can treat facial aging and rejuvenate your face!

The Profound RF Device by Syneron-Candela is an FDA-approved technology that uses radiofrequency waves to treat both dermal and adipose tissue. The device sends radiofrequency waves deep down into the dermis to restructure the skin layers, resulting in a reduction of wrinkles and irregular surfaces. One of the main benefits of a Profound RF treatment is its ability to tighten the skin. Often referred to as a non-surgical facelift, the treatment will work to stimulate the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. These are three critical elements in having healthy skin. Profound RF is one of the first devices to improve all three elements in the skin. 

Cellulite Treatment with ProfoundRF:

Utilizing advanced radiofrequency technology, ProfoundRF targets cellulite at its source, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin to smooth out dimples and improve texture. This minimally invasive procedure delivers controlled heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, precisely targeting cellulite while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Patients can expect visible improvements in cellulite reduction and skin tightening, with long-lasting results. With ProfoundRF, you can achieve smoother, firmer skin and regain confidence in your appearance. 

What are the benefits of ProfoundRF?

Microneedling with ProfoundRF in Atlanta has several benefits. A 2013 study found that the procedure reduced wrinkles around the eyes and that the effects lasted longer than those of Botox injections. ProfoundRF can also help reduce loose, saggy skin on the face and improve the skin’s texture and size of your pores. 

ProfoundRF For Hyperhidrosis: 

A 2019 study found that this procedure can effectively stop hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating by reducing the number and size of sweat glands. Excessive sweating is a common problem that can be embarrassing and difficult to control. Hyperhidrosis is often treated with Botox injections, but these injections only last for a few months, with Profound the results can be amplified to your needs. 

ProfoundRF can benefit Acne Scars: 

A 2014 study found that radiofrequency microneedling moderately improved acne scars in 58% of participants. Furthermore, similar results were found in a study of patients with darker skin tones. Acne scarring can make patients feel self-conscious and can be difficult to treat. If you are struggling with acne scars, ProfoundRF may be a treatment option for you.

Overall, ProfoundRF offers a non-surgical solution for improving the appearance of cellulite and tightening the skin around the face or where needed, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

First Steps

What’s the first step?

The first step to ProfoundRF in Atlanta is to schedule a consultation. During this consultation, you will discuss your goals for the procedure with Dr. Arslanian. He will examine your skin to determine if Profound is the best treatment for you. If it is, our team will develop a customized treatment plan for you, creating a path to the best results based on your needs.

What to expect on the day of ProfoundRF treatment

The ProfoundRF treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia or sedation. When you arrive, we may be just as excited as you are as your results are our own. 

During your procedure, a small handpiece will be used to deliver energy below the skin’s surface. The energy will heat the tissue and stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin. The handpiece will be passed over the treatment area multiple times to deliver the energy evenly.

After the procedure, you’ll then receive instructions on how to care for your skin post-treatment, including any restrictions on activities or skincare products. The length of the procedure varies depending on what you’re treating, but it’s usually around 10-20 minutes. The session will finish with a soothing solution to minimize any discomfort and once complete,  you’ll be out the door and on with your day.

ProfoundRF recovery

The recovery period for your ProfoudnRF treatment is straightforward, putting you on the path to successful results. We may have you apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort. We ask that you remember to wear SPF for several weeks after your treatment as directed, as your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun during this time. 

If prescribed, use antibiotic creams, emollients, or gentle cleansers after your treatment. For the next day, avoid wearing makeup but afterward this time, you can return to your regular makeup application and skincare routine.

Although radiofrequency microneedling is typically well tolerated, it may occasionally result in some side effects, including:

  • Dry or red skin
  • Itching or Scaling
  • Swelling
  • Possible mild acne flare-up
  • If you’re prone to cold sores, we may prescribe an antiviral medication to prevent a breakout

These side effects will likely go away after a day or two. If you experience any of the following, or your side effects do not clear up after a day or two, it may be indicative of a bigger problem that requires medical attention. In such case, please reach out to Dr. Arslanian if you feel you have:

  • Lingering swelling, redness, bruising, fatigue, headache
  • Signs of Infection: fever, chills, body aches
  • Persisting Swelling or Redness: increase in size or duration of symptoms
  • Prolonged Bleeding: bleeding that lasts longer than expected
  • Bruising: discoloration of the skin
