Advantages of Fractional vs. Traditional Microneedling

What Is Microneedling?

Sun-damaged and aging skin thins the epidermis and dermis, along with decreasing collagen levels, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles as well as tone and texture changes and sagging skin. Microneedling involves damaging the skin to encourage an increase in collagen was well as new dermal tissue. This results in a fuller-looking appearance. Traditionally, lasers are used to resurface the skin.

Secret RF before and after treatmentFractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling has now emerged as a good option. Rather than affecting the entire surface, RF causes thermal damage to the dermis in much smaller areas. The impact surrounding tissue accelerates the healing process, reducing recovery time and resulting in minimal adverse effects.

Fractional RF microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that involves the use of very fine sterilized needles to create microscopic wounds at various depths in the dermis — without affecting the epidermis. Direct thermal heating of the dermis results in new collagen production and fuller, healthier skin. Microneedling is also used to treat scars, acne, wrinkles and other signs of aging.
