Fractional RF is a microneedling treatment that delivers fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into the deeper layers of the skin. Through fractional RF, you can improve your skin appearance, tighten skin, and treat common complaints like active acne, acne scars, and stretch marks.
How Does It Work?
Radiofrequency (RF) is a type of energy derived from radio waves. Radiofrequency can be used both for skin resurfacing and for skin tightening. In Fractional RF, the radiofrequency energy dispenses heat in the deep dermal layers of your skin to initiate the body’s natural healing processes, including the revitalization of collagen production to regenerate the skin. During the treatment, micro-fine needles are charged with radiofrequency energy to deliver laser treatment deep into the tissues. This is considered a combination treatment that harnesses the power of traditional microneedling with laser resurfacing.
What Can You Expect?
Immediately after the treatment, you may notice some redness or light swelling. This is a normal result of initiating healing within the skin layers. We will explain how best to care for your skin in these first few days. Depending on your skin goals, you may require a few treatment sessions before noticing improvement.
