Radiofrequency Microneedling and Fractora

Updated: Jan 14, 2023

Improve your skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Radiofrequency applies heat to your skin to help it produce new collagen fibres.

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is a nonsurgical skin treatment that consists of two parts. First is the mechanical effect of needles. These tiny needles promote the microscopic healing of wounds and can increase collagen production, resulting in better skin.

The second part is the RF energy injected through these needles underneath the skin using a microneedle RF device. The repair process of your skin is accelerated through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in better product outcomes.

The general quality of your skin can improve with this procedure, and it helps with fine lines and wrinkles and face and neck tightening to give you more youthful-looking skin. It also safely treats facial acne scarring,

Fractora Skin Treatment by Inmode

Fractora Skin Treatment works to minimize wrinkles and slow the effects of aging.

It is minimally invasive, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime. The gentle heat promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance of the skin.
The methodical scattering of micro-lesions allows the skin to heal faster than if the entire area was ablated. RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin to revitalize the collagen.

Fractora can be used in areas that can benefit from skin renewal.

The most commonly treated areas include –
· lower eyelid, upper eyelid,
· smile lines, forehead,
· cheeks, mouth,
· neck.

The Treatment

A topical anesthetic will be applied 1 hour before the treatment to minimize discomfort. The treatment takes approximately 20 minutes.

Depending on your Fractora treatment regime, you can expect to have between 1 - 6 sessions. Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically the most noticeable results appear after two weeks and continue up to three months after treatment.
Microneedling sessions are short and require little downtime. The treatment will take about 30 minutes. Most patients report feeling only a slight vibration during the procedure. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn.
