Fractional RF Microneedling in Dubai

Fractional RF Microneedling treatment makes use of a grid of insulated microneedles that penetrate the top layer of skin (the epidermis) to a depth of 3.5 mm into the dermal layer for delivering radiofrequency heat pulses into the tissue. This smart technique stimulates the body to produce collagen and elastin fibers in the treatment area without causing any scars. Ultimately, the skin becomes tighter and smoother.

There are a few brands that market and develop RF microneedle devices. All of these devices are equally effective, with only slight variations in purpose and material. The concept is to deliver radiofrequency heat into the sub-dermal layer after penetrating the skin right where it is most needed.

The adjustable penetration depth of the microneedles ranges between 0.5 – 3.5 mm depending on the targeted tissue and type of condition being treated along with its extent.

Chemical peels, dermabrasion, and derma needling also work in the same manner where slight damage is inflicted onto the epidermis to induce collagen formation below the skin. However, the only difference in RF microneedling is that the epidermis is not damaged or affected by radio-frequency.

  • The procedure begins off by applying topical anesthesia that numbs the face.
  • The doctor then passes the handheld microneedling device over the skin manually. The device is set up with specific parameters for depth and frequency based on the intensity of the condition being treated. Usually, the doctor will pinch the targeted skin area with each pulse for better penetration and improved efficiency.
  • Radio-frequency is directly emitted onto the targeted deep tissue without burning up the epidermis. It is done to avoid hyper-pigmentation, which is common in such dermal techniques.
  • 20 to 30 minutes is the total time required to perform the procedure based on the patient’s treatment area and pain threshold. Right after the procedure, the natural body reaction to this treatment causes the face to become slightly swollen, warm and red.
  • The intended effect of the body to send in fibroblasts and regenerative compounds for the growth of collagen and elastin fibers begins immediately.
