Radio Frequency (RF) Fractional Micro-needling technology is a customizable photo-aging treatment. Using superficial microneedles to penetrate dermis tissue at differing depths (1.75mm - 3.5mm) depending on treatment focus to obtain results unique to your skin type/condition. Micro-needle fractional RF provides higher volumetric heating and deeper heat diffusion for optimal collagen stimulation, as a result, overall a higher efficacy.
