Microneedle RF for cellulite PROFOUND

PROFOUND for Cellulite

In a study of 28 female patients with cellulite, the Profound (Syneron Candela) microneedle-based fractional radiofrequency device resulted in a 100% response rate at various degrees for rebuilding collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
The study’s author Leyda Elizabeth Bowes, M.D., medical director, Bowes Aesthetics & Body Contouring, in Miami, Fla., presented the findings in April at ASLMS 2016, the 36th Annual Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Boston, Mass.
Dr. Bowes treated patients with the device bilaterally, and graded cellulite severity at one, three and six months. 
“The treatments were done using a modified 6-mm length 5-pair micro-needle tip at a 75-degree angle,” Dr. Bowes tells Cosmetic Surgery Times. “At the six-month follow up, we found an improvement in the degree of cellulite, typically by one to two points on the grading scale, which translates to a 30% to 40% improvement. That’s only with one minimally invasive, 30-minute treatment. This is quite significant.”
