Advanced Microneedling ( micro needling) Service in Edmonton

Microneedling (micro-needling) Fractional RF or MFR (Microneedling Fractional Radiofrequency)  works through gold insulate needles and results in accurate and 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.

 

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.  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

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.
