Fractional Radiofrequency

Sun or light damaged and aging skin is characterized by thinning of the epidermis and dermis and is associated with a decrease in collagen levels resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, less tone, and texture changes. Treatment of this sun damaged, thin skin is based on causing controlled injury to the dermis, resulting in stimulation of the body’s natural healing system or “neocollagenesis”. Damage to the dermis results in the stimulation of various enzymes, such as elastin, collagenase, and stem cells. These all work together and are responsible for the removal of old tissue and the creation of new dermal tissue. Traditionally, laser-based technologies are used to resurface the skin, but fractional RF works to rebuild the subsurface or foundation of the skin.

Fractional RF for Face and Body

Fractional RF microneedling is a minimally invasive technology which involves the use of very fine sterilized needles to create channels at various predetermined depths into the dermis, without affecting the epidermis or surface layer of the skin. The delivery of energy leads to the stimulation of your body’s stem cells to heal the tissue, the production of new collagen, and improved elasticity between the intact tissue and the multiple channels caused by the needles. The direct thermal heating of the dermis results in new collagen production and subsequent dermal thickening. The presence of the intact epidermis and the surrounding dermal tissue results in rapid re-epithelialization and thus minimal downtime and risks. Studies also show that fractional radio-frequency micro-needling is effective in the treatment of scars, large pores, stretch marks, and skin revitalization.

Fractional RF Results and Recovery

The pain associated with fractional radio-frequency micro-needling may be more than traditional micro- needling but is very manageable using standard pain management techniques. A topical anesthetic like lidocaine, applied at least 30 minutes before treatment is generally adequate to minimize discomfort during treatment. Cutera’s Secret RF is a fractional radio-frequency micro-needling device optimized for hemostasis and coagulation that triggers the bodies healing process resulting in skin revitalization and addresses photodamage, scars, stretch marks, and other signs of aging.

Secret RF is notably safe for all skin pigments or is said to be “color blind” and is suitable for treating all skin types with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.

Secret RF is a reliable and well-tolerated technique for skin revitalization through hemostasis and coagulation with little to no downtime. The treatment generally takes only 20 minutes after numbing cream and requires as few as three treatments for best results.
