RF Needling or Fractionated Radiofrequency Needling
Fractional RF microneedling is a gentle and non-surgical technology that uses a bunch of really tiny, clean needles to create very small wounds in the inner layer of the skin, without damaging the outer layer. This process stimulates the skin to produce new collagen, which makes the skin thicker and healthier.
Because the outer layer of the skin is not harmed, the healing process is quick and safe, with minimal downtime and risks. This treatment has been shown to be effective in improving scars, large pores, stretch marks, and overall skin rejuvenation.
What is done to reduce discomfort?
The patient is asked to apply topical numbing cream about 40-60 minutes before the RF Needling procedure starts.
How many RF Needling Sessions are required in general?
On average, 6-8 sessions spaced out 2-4 weeks apart is an ideal treatment protocol.
When does the patient see results?
The patient starts seeing results just after one RF treatment session.
How does the skin look like immediately after the RF treatment?
It looks red. There might be some swelling.
When does the skin get back to normal after RF needling treatment?
After few hours to a day, the skin gets back to normal.
