RF refers to radiofrequency. RF is a minimally invasive treatment using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin. Using heat energy creates a controlled injury to your skin that prompts collagen and elastin production in the skin, the two proteins responsible for skin firmness, tightness, and smoothness.
Some RF facials are simply facials that you can get done at your local medi-spa. These gentle RF facials work superficially for an instant sculpting effect but the results are short-term.
Other radiofrequency face treatments using the Morpheus system are more intense and should only be performed by licensed medical professionals because of their higher intensity. You will see a more noticeable and longer-lasting lift and tightening 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 and revitalizes the collagen.
Depending on your Fractora treatment regime you can expect to have between 1 - 6 sessions. Visible results can be seen immediately, but often after two weeks is when you see the most noticeable results. The improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
Fractora can be combined with additional energy treatments or injectables to achieve a more extensive full-face result, called a FracTotal Facial.
When RF energy is combined with Microneedling it works at improving skin tone and texture and minimizes the appearance of pores and acne scars.
