WHAT HAPPENS DURING MICRONEEDLING?
When you come in for your RF microneedling treatment, your face will first be cleansed before we apply a numbing cream for your comfort. During normal treatments, a device with tiny needles is applied to the treatment area to create tiny holes in your skin, almost like aerating your skin.
By painlessly causing controlled damage to your skin, microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing process. As a result, your skin’s collagen production increases.
How Does Collagen Increase?
RF microneedling adds radiofrequency energy to your skin while creating these tiny wounds. The heat from the RF energy stimulates collagen production and hyaluronic acid production faster than basic microneedling.
After the procedure, your skin will look a little red or flushed. Your doctor will give you specific instructions to take care of your skin while it heals. But in a few weeks, your skin will be fresher, tighter, younger, and brighter.
Does RF Microneedling Hurt?
Typically, there is some mild discomfort associated with microneedling, patients usually don’t have any problems when a topical anesthetic cream is applied before the procedure. During the procedure, you will feel a heating sensation and some light pressure. Because mircroneedling is only skin deep, there shouldn’t be any other discomfort.
On top of our normal Fractora treatment, this procedure also stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid or HA. HA is important for your skin because it attracts many times its own weight in water, which significantly improves skin volume. In fact, HA is often coupled with dermal fillers to improve skin laxity and volume loss.
In order to fill the punctures created by microneedling, your body will produce more HA to hydrate and volumize your skin. We also apply soothing products after your treatment, formulated with HA to keep your skin hydrated.
FRACTORA AS AN ACNE TREATMENT
If you deal with an aggressive type of acne and your normal skin care routine needs a boost, Fractora might be the right option for you.
The acne-causing bacteria don’t respond well to oxygen or heat. They thrive in the grit that gets stuck in your skin. So by aerating your skin and warming it with RF energy, Fractora helps reduce acne.
Finally, Fractora can reduce and improve acne scarring. By stimulating collagen production and jump starting your skin’s healing process, we can start filling in ice pick scars, rolling scars, boxcar scars, and atrophic scars.
HOW INVASIVE IS FRACTORA MICRONEEDLING?
RF microneedling is minimally invasive and has little downtime. If any. Most patients return to work after their treatment. Your face will be a little sensitive after your treatment, and you’ll notice some redness in your skin. But, these symptoms should fade within a few hours.
After your procedure, you should take special care to hydrate your skin. Preferably with products that include hyaluronic acid. Over the next few days, we recommend a zinc-based sunblock to protect your skin.
We recommend only using mineral-based makeup for the next few days after your treatment. But once your skin has had a chance to heal, you can return to your normal routine.
