Microneedle Radiofrequency & Fractional Radiofrequency Treatment
Microneedle (MRF) and Fractional Radiofrequency (FRF) treatments are the latest innovations in the field of cosmetology. It is considered safer than fractional laser treatment as it suits all skin types without any significant adverse effects.
- Skin Tightening
- Periorbital Wrinkles
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Active Inflammatory Acne
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne Scar
- Excessive Sebum Secretion
- Stretch Mark
The machine we use has two handpieces; Microneedle RF & Fractional RF.
The needle tip contains tiny gold needles acting as an internal conductor. The microneedles are driven directly into the skin at a certain depth, and radiofrequency energy is then released inside the skin. It gives a more uniform deep tissue warming that will stimulate collagen and new collagen fibres.
The system differs from laser therapy. Each needle in the array is insulated at the tip, with only 0.3mm exposed at the apex where the RF emits. The electrical energy is transposed into thermal energy. The RF energy exits the end of the needle it transfers from its point circle to the adjoining areas causing denaturalisation and coagulation. As the needles are insulated apart from their tips, the micro-holes created are not exposed to thermal damage during the RF emission, which minimises the side effects of pigmentation and spares any damage to the epidermis.
This handpiece creates microthermal zones and leaves the healthy skin around for rapid healing. The system not only delivers RF energy deeper, but it offers a quick recovery -F-RF provides:
- Fractional ablation.
- Removes damaged skin cells and resurfacing superficial skin layers to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and other textural irregularities.
- Red and brown spots.
Simultaneously, volumetric deep dermal heating is applied to the collagen fibres causing an immediate and long term skin tightening. This combined treatment effectively treats all skin layers for an optimal result. After repeat treatments, there is a noticeable firming of the skin in the face and neck area and skin texture improvements.
- Minimally invasive
- Shorter procedure time and downtime
- Lower risks such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and scarring
What is the difference between Fractional RF/MRF and Fractional laser?
Fractional RF/MRF is better than Fractional laser since Fractional laser is a single wavelength; it is not colour blind. The absorbed energy is different with different skin colours. But the result of Fractional RF is not affected by the pigment and is suitable for all kinds of skin. The result can be seen after each treatment.
How about the safety of Fractional RF/MRF?
Fractional RF treatment has passed the FDA and CE certification; the safety has been proved according to clinical reports.
What are the indications for Fractional RF/MRF treatment?
Fractional RF could treat wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scar, large pores.
Is it suitable for sensitive skin?
The sensitive skin is suitable for the Fractional RF/MRF treatment.
Is it suitable for dark colour skin?
It is suitable for dark colour skin since there is no light power, only RF energy.
Does the skin become thin after the treatment?
The Fractional RF treatment will not make the skin thinner. Oppositely, it could renew the collagen in the skin to make the skin healthier.
What will happen to the skin after the treatment?
At the treatment, redness and slight swelling will happen. After 24 hours, the treatment area will show some needle shape escharotics. The customer could use makeup to cover the treatment area and not affect everyday life and work.
Is it necessary to undergo multiple treatments? How long time to do another treatment?
Even after one treatment, the result will happen; however, we suggest repeating another treatment after six weeks for 3-5 sessions.
How long will the results last?
The effect of a single treatment is evident after 2-6 months. The results are permanent once you finish the treatment.
How long can we use the cooling head?
After the treatment, we can use the cooling head for reducing the temperature of the skin. Usually, 5-10 minutes of cooling is necessary after treatment.
