Fractional RF is our latest technology offering a variety of flexible treatment protocols to achieve superior results.
Fractional RF applies direct energy into the layers of the skin. This micro- needle treatment will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
The Fractional RF treatment is versatile and can be tailored to effectively treat many skin concerns on the face and body.
Fractional RF is used to tighten and firm facial contours which become lax and sag as you age. Skin becomes firmer around the jawline, chin and cheeks while lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead are reduced. The result is a more youthful appearance with greater skin elasticity and lift to the face.
Acne Scarring and Stretch Marks
The advanced combination of Radio Frequency and Micro-Needle technology effectively treats acne scarring and stretch marks. As new collagen is stimulated, the skin becomes healthier, firmer and refined, resulting in a more even skin texture and visible reduction of scars.
Rosacea & Flushing
Radio Frequency is used to strengthen the fine capillaries just under the surface of the skin. This dramatically reduces the appearance of general redness and rosacea.
Fractional RF creates micro-channels in the skin. This controlled thermal damage causes the skin to produce collagen to heal and repair. In turn, renewed collagen plumps and strengthens the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles as skin texture and tone are improved.
The application of RF energy causes sebaceous glands to shrink and therefore produce less oil. Although some lasers can be used in the same way, we find that Fractional RF is less painful and readily tolerated. When the Radio Frequency energy is applied in combination with micro-needles we are also able to reduce the appearance of scarring and reduce the red inflammation. This makes a noticeable difference to the acne sufferer.
Fractional RF visibly treats open pores, by stimulating the skin’s own collagen production. Over 2-5 treatments pore size is significantly improved.
What areas can be treated?
Fractional RF is suitable for use on the face, neck décolletage and any body area.
Does it hurt?
Topical numbing cream is applied to make the treatment very tolerable.
How long is recovery after treatment?
Fractional RF has little to no downtime. Slight redness and warmth to the skin may be experienced after your treatment but normal activities can be resumed immediately.
How many treatments are required?
Depending on the condition we are treating and your individual skin health, 3-6 treatments are recommended.
How often is the treatment?
Depending on the condition we are treating and your individual skin health we would treat at 4 week intervals
The best results are obtained by two weeks careful skin preparation using a Glycolic Cleanser, Skinstitut Even Blend Serum, Vitamin C, SPF50+ Sunblock and Retinol (must cease Retinol application three days prior to treatment).
We cannot treat you if you have:
- Skin irritation, sun exposure or sunbed use within 2 weeks of your treatment
- A history of abnormal skin healing or scarring
- Had laser resurfacing in the last three months
- Used skincare containing Retinol (topical Vitamin A) in the last three days
- Have metal pins, plates or stints in the localised treatment area, or pacemaker
- Had a peel in the last four weeks
You must advise your technician if you have ever used Isotretinoin products (such as Roaccutaine or Gold Therapy).
Post Treatment Care
Avoid excess sun exposure, tanning, solariums and exercise for 48 hours.
Avoid using any active products containing AHA, Glycolics or Retinol for 72 hours post treatment.
A gentle skincare routine including sunscreen can be applied to the treatment area the following day. Sunscreen application should be continued for the following seven days.
