INJECTABLE RF OR MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY (MFR) TREATMENT OVERVIEW:
The injectable RF or the Microneedle Fractional Radio frequency (MFR) treatment, delivers radio frequency energy via microneedles below the skin surface in multiple miniscule beams leading to “fractional” heat zones, leaving normal tissue in between the heated zones for shorter recovery time. This treatment helps generate collagen in two ways; The microneedles cause mico-injuries in the deeper dermis which your body heals with collagen production. The fractional radiofrequency heats up the deeper dermis in 360 degrees around each microneedle tip for further collagen tightening and synthesis. Our injectable RF system uses gold plated and insulated needles for minimum injury to skin surface for little or no downtime.
There is some discomfort associated with the procedure which is minimized with use of topical numbing creme prior to the treatment. There may be mild to moderate redness which in most cases is resolved in 1 to 3 days. The area treated is sensitive and may be tender to touch for 3 to 5 days after the treatment. Occasionally there may be bruising form the treatment which can take 10-14 days to completely resolve. There is a small risk of skin infection in spite of adequate precautions. We urge you to contact us immediately for any signs of infection (excessive redness, tenderness, swelling). There is risk of activation of Herpes Simplex (cold sores). Let us know if you have history of cold sores so we can provide you a prescription for cold sore prophylaxis.
Although very rare, there may be dimpled scarring and hyperpigmentation following this treatment.
Keloid scarring, eczema, active infections, actinic keratosis, History of Herpes simplex, chronic skin conditions, use of aspiring or other NSAIDS.
Absolute contraindications: Cardiac abnormalities, use of certain blood thinning medications, immune suppression, scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, recent scars (less than 6 months old), pregnancy, lactation.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY (MFR) TREATMENTS IN MEMPHIS
Radio frequency RF energy has been used in medicine in various applications for many decades.
Non-ablative RF was FDA approved for treatment of wrinkles and skin tightening in 2002.
Radio frequency essentially heats up the skin causing a controlled “burn” which triggers the skin’s healing response, eventually minimizing wrinkles, scars and tightening the skin in two distinct ways:
- Immediate collagen contraction visible at the time of the treatment.
- New collagen production and remodeling with further skin thickening and tightening which continues for months after treatment.
The results of RF treatment vary with the type of RF used (monopolar, bipolar, tripolar or multipolar and fractional) and the method of RF delivery which determines the depth of RF penetration. The major drawbacks of using of non-ablative RF ( for example Thermage) is epidermal injury and pain associated with over heating of the skin surface without increasing the depth of RF penetration and failure to heat deeper dermis for a significant improvement.
THE NEWER MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY OVERCOMES THIS BARRIER WITH BETTER DELIVERY OF FRACTIONAL RADIO FREQUENCY WITH ITS REVOLUTIONARY GOLD PLATED AND INSULATED MICRONEEDLE TIPS
Fractional radio frequency is a newer, safer technology which delivers radio frequency in multiple miniscule beams leading to “fractional” heat zones, leaving normal tissue in between the heated zones for shorter recovery time. Our Microneedle Fractional RF system offers Fractional RF, Monopolar and Bipolar RF settings with two treatment options; invasive Microneedle Fractional Radio frequency MFR and noninvasive Superficial Fractional Radio frequency SFR
MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY- MFR
Our Microneedle Fractional Radio frequency (MFR) uses specialized tips with ultra-fine gold-coated needles which penetrate the epidermis to deliver fractional radio frequency to the deeper dermis without burning the skin surface. The MFR treatments deliver RF energy in a three dimensional field which vastly magnifies the collagen, elastic regeneration response leading to significant improvement in wrinkles, scars and overall tightening on the skin
SUPERFICIAL FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY- SFR
Our Microneedle Fractional RF system is a dual system capable of non-invasive RF treatments as well, suitable for stimulating collagen production in the skin surface, epidermis for thinner skin areas and mild skin aging. Superficial fractional radio frequency (SFR) employs a non invasive delivery of radio frequency to the epidermis and dermis for resurfacing the skin and stimulating the production of collagen for a more toned and refined skin.
MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY CAN BE USED TO IMPROVE:
- Mild to moderate laxity of skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Rough leathery skin texture
- Acne and other scars
- Enlarged pores
- Excess sebum production
- Stretch marks
ADVANTAGES OF OUR MICRONEEDLE FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY – MFR SYSTEM:
- Superb design with even radiofrequency delivery adjustable to various skin depths
- Precise and accurate microneedle adjustment from 0.5mm to 3 mm
- Gold plated microneedles for efficient energy delivery to deeper dermis without damaging epidermis
- Insulated microneedles for safe delivery to the tip of the microneedle for maximum effect in the deep dermis while sparing the surface of the skin. This minimizes skin burns and other side effects such as hyperpigmentation, scars etc.
- Ultra-fine needles are designed for your comfort and less tissue damage for quick recovery
- Built in cooling tip for post procedure skin cooling
- Bipolar and monopolar treatment options
- Invasive (MFR) and noninvasive (SFR) treatment tips for treatment of multiple areas
- Disposable treatment tips for control of infection and quality of RF conduction
- Quick recovery, little downtime
- Far less discomfort than ablative lasers, the procedure is practically painless according to majority of our patients
MULTIPLE TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR BEST RESULTS
Like all treatments that depend on your body’s ability to generate its own collagen, Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency treatments need to be repeated for adequate collagen generation. Tha results of each MFR treatment can be enhanced with the addition of your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Your PRP can be aplied topically right after your treatment for peneteration of your PRP though the mico chanels created withe the MFR treatment and via subdermal injections for extra volume in key areas such as around the eyes, middle face, around the mouth, under chin for naturally youthful face withut the “plumped” or “injected” look. For best results for skin tightening with your Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency treatment, we recommend:
FACE AND NECK: Three to four treatments, 3-4 weeks apart for face and neck anti aging and skin tightening and for treatment of acne scars
BODY: Four to Six treatments, three to four weeks apart for body skin tightening and stretch mark reduction.
