What is RF Fractional
RF Fractional is a treatment that uses radio frequency to help rejuvenate the skin. It is also used to help tighten the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and color, as well as minimize the appearance of the skin.
Radio frequency stretch marks are used as electrical energy as part of this treatment. It is used to gently warm the skin to help start producing new collagen and to form elastin to help improve skin tightening.
How Does the RF Fractional Treatment Work?
The treatment is done in which the device uses triangular needles that puncture into the skin and deliver RF energy, in which the skin becomes firmer and more rejuvenated, giving a youthful complexion.
The needles are done row by row in order to cover more surface area in a short amount of time as well as make more comfortable for the client.
The treatment works by first starting off by cleansing the skin thoroughly. If requested, numbing cream may be applied to the area to help make the process more comfortable for the client.
After waiting a few minutes for the numbing cream to set in, the specialist will then proceed with the treatment. There may be some minimal bleeding during the procedure, as this is normal, and can be controlled by the specialist.
Once the procedure is finished, the specialist will then discuss the post-care instructions on what to do and what to expect after the treatment.
What Should I Expect After the Procedure?
After the procedure, the skin may look a bit irritated, resulting in some redness, some slight tenderness, and may feel rough textured for the first couple of days.
These minimal side affects are normal to experience after the treatment, will improve overtime.
There is little to no downtime after the treatment, and can typically return to your daily activities as soon as possible.
It is recommended to avoid wearing anything on the treated area such as makeup or skin care products unless the specialist recommends for at least 24 hours.
After a couple of days, you may begin to continue your regular skin care routine.
If you have any concerns, regarding the post care or side affects you may be experiencing, it is best to contact the specialist in which they will better assist you.
How Many RF Fractional Treatments Are Needed in Order to See Results?
The number of treatments needed to see great results varies from person to person. Because each person has different skin concerns and may need more treatment depending on their skin than others.
On average, it is recommended to undergo at least 3-4 treatments spaced out between 3 weeks in order to see an improvement in your skin.
The number of treatments will be determined based on how well the patient responds to the treatment in which they may only need 3-4 sessions.
For someone who may have more skin concerns they’d like to improve on, it may take more sessions.
When Will I Start to See Results?
One of the main factors in which this procedure helps with is increasing the production of collagen and elasticity in the skin. This process usually takes on average 6-8 weeks for the collagen and elasticity to be fully in affect.
Results can be seen post treatment after just one session. But overtime, you will notice a significant result after undergoing a few treatments.
How Should I Prepare for the RF Fractional Treatment?
Before the treatment, it is best to avoid any blood thinner medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen for at least 2 weeks prior to the appointment.
