Fractional radiofrequency microneedling – an innovation for improving skin quality

Fractional radiofrequency microneedling improves skin quality in the long term. The latest fractional radiofrequency microneedling devices are hardly invasive and offer greater selectivity in treatment. The skin is rejuvenated quickly, gently and in the long term.

Treatment Overview

What is fractional radiofrequency microneedling?

Fractional radiofrequency microneedling is the latest development in aesthetic technology and is based on the effect of penetrating radiofrequency (RF) to a depth of 4.5 mm.

With the help of fractional RF and heat, which is generated not on the surface but in the depth of the skin, an amplification of existing collagen is achieved. At the same time, the therapy activates fibroblasts, which produce new collagen from within through the natural process of collagenogenesis.

RF microneedling treatment adds the element of radiofrequency energy to traditional microneedling. The RF energy is delivered through small needles. In addition to the micro-injury benefits of microneedling, RF Microneedling delivers RF deep into the dermis and impressively improves blemished skin and acne scars. RF energy heats the underlying layers, causing the skin to tighten and stiffen, as well as stimulating collagen and elastin production.

Does the treatment have side effects?

It is a completely non-invasive method without incisions and without leaving scars. It does not interfere with internal organs, does not cause any injuries, it is painless and absolutely safe.

Fractional radiofrequency treatment does not cause photosensitivity and can be performed all year round. Its effect is not affected by sun exposure, as RF targets the depth rather than the surface of the skin. It also requires no anesthesia or recovery time.

Who is a candidate for fractional radiofrequency microneedling?

Fractional radiofrequency microneedling is very suitable for patients between 20-60 years of age with clear signs of blemished skin and acne scars at the same time. It is applied to any part of the face and body where blemished skin is a problem for patients.

If you want to achieve significant skin rejuvenation, this is an excellent treatment for you. Together with filler treatments, you will experience a significant improvement in skin quality and dramatically reduced wrinkles.

Is the treatment also suitable for active acne?

The safety and efficacy of fractional radiofrequency microneedling in the radiofrequency treatment of acne have been tested in recent years with clinical studies. According to these studies, patients with moderate acne were treated with fractional radiofrequency microneedling three times, one month apart. The results showed that the number of inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne lesions decreased significantly. It was also observed that the inflammatory acne lesions showed better improvement than the non-inflammatory lesions.

When do I see the results of fractional radiofrequency microneedling treatment?

Immediately after the radiofrequency treatment, slight irritation and mild redness or swelling may occur, which gradually recede over the next few hours.

The full effect of the treatment is seen after about 2-3 weeks. To achieve a lasting improvement in skin quality, the treatment should be performed regularly.

How many fractionated radio­frequency micro­needling treatments are needed?

All patients experience a significant, dramatic improvement in skin quality after just one treatment. Depending on the condition of the skin prior to treatment, more than one treatment may be necessary to realize the full potential. A combination with mesotherapy or laser skin rejuvenation further supports the treatment.

Treatments can be performed approximately 3-4 weeks apart.
