Fractional RF

Radiofrequency has been used for a long time in the fields of medicine as well as skin and cosmetology. With the development of technology over time, new features have been added to the method, making it a very effective procedure.

The first of these new features is the fractionalization of the application. The difference of this technique is that the applied force penetrates the skin through many small points side by side, not as a whole. Fractional radiofrequency devices, which are second generation radiofrequency devices, provide safe and positive results.

What is fractional radio frequency?

Radiofrequency, a treatment technique that has been safely used in medicine for many years, has begun to be used frequently in aesthetic applications in recent years. With the introduction of fractional applications, its risks have decreased, and its positive results have increased.

Various techniques used as fractional RF

Golden Needle Therapy (FRM) (Fractional RF Microneedle)

The golden needle is a special cap designed to deliver radiofrequency energy from the tip of the needle-shaped electrodes. In this way, the skin surface and other areas are protected while energizing the skin at the desired depth, and while improvement in the targeted area is achieved, any negative effects that may occur in other areas are prevented.

Superficial Skin Rejuvenation (SRR) (Sublative RF)

The SRR technique uses electrode tips that do not penetrate into the skin and cause damage by spreading. Thermal damage is created in the skin down to a depth of 0.3mm. The skin begins to peel off a few days after the procedure and appears smoother and fresher.

Grid Fractional RF (GFR)

It serves to generate thermal damage under the skin in the form of a lattice or wire mesh with fractionated radiofrequency energy. It improves loose or sagging skin surface.

How is fractional RF applied?

First, an anesthetic cream is applied to the application area. Once the appropriate doses have been adjusted, the procedure is started. During the application, the application is performed 2-3 times on each area. Co-administration of fractional RF therapy with PRP or CGF increases and accelerates its effect. It improves oval facial shape, tightness, brightness and structure of the skin.

Although it varies according to the density and condition of the problem area, the application is usually performed in the range of 1-4 sessions.
