Is FRF a suitable option for you?
Our dermatology specialists in Dubai have years of experience at the highest levels of the industry. For the Fractional Radio Frequency treatment, age is not an accountable factor, it is a procedure suitable for people who feel that their skin has suffered due to issues like acne, scars, or even just feeling like their skin is not as supple as before or your skin has become dull. This is where a few sessions of RF micro-needling can help.
This process is one of the most effective ways to revitalise your skin and regain your youthful and supple appearance. However, our celebrity plastic surgeon says that people who use acne medicines should consult a doctor before they opt for an FRF process.
How does Fractional Radio Frequency work?
Research has shown that heating of the dermis causes collagen denaturation and immediately causes the collagen to contract in addition to longer-term collagen remodeling. Using FRF, our specialists can deliver this heat to your dermis to encourage the creation of new collagen thereby inducing skin tightening.
We combine our FRF with micro-needling, which allows the exact number of micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate the body's own natural healing response and boost fibroblast cell growth. Micro-needling is a very simple and safe procedure that is minimally invasive and growing increasingly popular, particularly for the treatment of a wide range of issues ranging from acne scarring, acne, post-trauma burns/scarring, alopecia and stretch marks. Since 1995, micro needling has been the subject of a growing number of research studies.
When should you consider a Fractional Radio Frequency treatment?
You should consider an FRF treatment when you need to:
- Achieve smoother skin and want to reduce wrinkles
- Fight acne scars
- Minimise large pores
- Tighten, lift and firm the skin
- Reduce scarring and stretch marks
- Improve skin pigmentation and sun damage
- Reduce spider veins
- Brighten complexion
What is the procedure for FRF treatment?
The FRF treatment uses tiny pins that safely deliver energy through the surface of the skin, which creates tiny wounds that initiate a natural healing process leading to the formation of new healthy tissues. The result is improved skin tone and texture, and reduced fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. There’s less downtime, fortunately, since the wounds are tiny and more comfortable compared to traditional ablative laser resurfacing treatments.
What is the downtime after an FRF procedure?
Following the treatment, your skin will be flaming red for the first 24 hours there’s a chance of mild swelling and discomfort. Depending on the intensity of the treatments, there could also be skin flaking for up to 5 days. You can resume your regular skincare and make-up routine a day after your treatment.
What happens during the FRF treatment consultation?
Every patient has a specific skin type when going in for such a procedure, that’s why our experts first take the time to understand and study your skin condition before proceeding with the treatment. Since this isn’t a laser treatment, it can cover all skin textures including dark/light complexion or patients with sensitive skin. At a glance, the consultation would consider if you are medically healthy and have no side effects, and if you have a history of any skin disease or are suffering from acne scars.
How should you prepare for fractional radio frequency treatment?
Our experts recommend that you:
- Avoid over exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays or airbrush tans at least two weeks before treatment. Applying sunscreen is always a good recommendation.
- Avoid taking blood thinners for at least 10 days prior to the treatment.
- Eating oil-rich foods a day before treatment.
- Let your doctor know about any allergies or medicines you may be having which could affect your treatment.
