RF Fractional Micro Needling

RF Fractional Micro needling directly targets the collagen layer of the skin and is useful for collagen remodeling and tightening. This procedure is most often applied in a series of 5 treatments, with each treatment producing a noticeable improvement in the quality of the skin. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic.

RF Micro needling treatments boost the body’s natural collagen production, providing continued improvement in the area treated over the coming weeks resulting in smoother, clearer and more lifted skin on your face and body.

The day of your treatment and possibly the following day, your skin will be red and possibly have minor swelling. By the third day makeup can be used to cover any lingering redness.

Many see improvement after one or two treatments, with optimal results seen three months post third treatment. Each treatment is spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on what concern you want to improve and the severity.

* For treatment of acne scars and skin rejuvenation usually 5-8 treatments are recommended, 3 treatments for acne scars 4-5 weeks apart.

* For management of stretch marks and surgical or keloid scars usually up to 8-10 treatments are required, spaced apart every 5-6 weeks. More time in between treatments is suggested due to the aggressive trauma to the skin, allowing proper recovery time to avoid over-stimulation. If scars/stretch marks are 6 months old or younger, less time in between treatments is okay.
