PROFOUND RF ACNE SCAR TREATMENT LONDON
Profound RF is a break-through radio-frequency (RF) technology that has been developed as a non-surgical alternative to facelift and as well for skin remodelling in the case of acne scarring. Book a consultation with Dr Dianni Dai for Profound RF for Acne Scar Removal treatment.
Profound RF treatment for Acne Scars
Acne scar is the results of damage from the inflammatory process associated with acne which depletes the skin of its normal anatomical integrity. Therefore the skin becomes indented and forms box scars, rolling scars and ice-pick scars.
Profound RF is the only FDA-cleared, long-pulsed (3-4 seconds), temperature-controlled & measured (up to 67 degrees), RF micro-needling device. This means it is both highly effective and safe for acne scar removal, including the most stubborn ones. It works to create new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin, thereby remodelling scarred skin and generating healthier new skin.
This treatment will be delivered by our in house doctor, Dr Dianni Dai.

Profound RF FAQ's
Will Acne Scars be removed entirely forever?
Acne scar removal is considered permanent.
What happens during the treatment?
The procedure takes, on average, 2 hours and is conducted by our highly experienced doctor. A thick layer of numbing cream is first applied to the face and left on for about 30 minutes, and next will follow injections of local anaesthetic and adrenaline. During the treatment, five pairs of needles are inserted each time, followed by controlled radio-frequency energy release lasting 3-4 seconds. Most people do not find the procedure painful thanks to the anaesthetic cream and injections.
What is the aftercare?
Immediate swelling, redness and occasional bruising can be expected. They can persist up to 1 week following the procedure. During this downtime, it is essential to protect the skin from the sun and therefore, daily SPF is advised. Certain strenuous activities are to be avoided. Detailed aftercare will be emailed to all clients following the procedure via email reminders.
Does it work for all types of Acne Scars?
Profound RF produces a substantial improvement in the appearance of all types of acne scars, which include the softening of scar contours as well as the reduction in scar depth.
Is it painful?
The treatment will feel uncomfortable as the needles are inserted into the skin and held. A pain relief can be used before treatment and discussed at your consultation.
Do I need to prepare anything for the treatment?
For darker skin types, sometimes it is necessary to prepare the skin for the procedure in order to minimise risks of pigmentation. Our doctor conducts a thorough consultation before the procedure and if needed, prescribed topical creams to prepare the skin.
How soon can results be seen?
Results can become noticeable as early as 6 weeks, and positive changes continue to take place up to 6 months.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions will depend on the extent of the scar being treated. Most people notice significant results after one session, and some undergo a second session in order to enhance the results further.
