Fractional Microneedling (MFR) works through gold insulate needles that produce Heat and result controlled coagulation point in the epidermis.; The model of energy delivery is through radio-frequency waves, to heat the skin from deep inside. The mechanical and thermal treatment zones go through a controlled healing process that results in skin tightening and scars correction.

Fractional Laser Fraxel has the advantage of the ability to treat both Pigmentation and wrinkles at the same time by changing the wavelength between the passes between 1550 and 1927 accordingly.

We customize the depth of the needles and the level of the heating according to the client skin type, the treated issues and the area of concern. This will able us to get the best results for every client. Multiple passes might be needed on the same treatment day with a different setting to cover different concern for the same client. The handpiece can be equipped with 29, 49 or 89 cold insulated needles. The results of MRF on acne scars are amazing especially if combined with PRP masks. Average of three sessions 1-3 months apart is usually required.
Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency
The other function that can be used is the SFR (Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency). This treatment has no needles involvement, therefore less mechanical ablation for the epidermis. The handpiece will deliver 49 beams of thermal energy through the epidermis and as deep as 1 mm. Due to the superficial delivery of the radio frequency, the setting has to be set lower to avoid any thermal injuries such as burns and PIH. This function has amazing results on skin tightening and rejuvenation, but less effective on acne scars.
