What is the radiofrequency method?
Radiofrequency method; It is one of the effective treatment methods that has been used safely in the field of aesthetic dermatology for a long time. It is the Fractional radiofrequency method which has been developed by adding new technological features to the classical radiofrequency method.
The first of these features; It is the fractionalization of the radiofrequency method.
In this way, radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin from many small points next to each other. Thanks to the solid tissues in between, skin damage is minimized and the healing process is shortened. All layers of the skin are affected by this technique and existing skin problems are treated in a short time.
Another innovation is; In the fractional radiofrequency method, the current is sent directly into the skin with the help of microneedles.
microneedleswith the help of the upper layer of the skin epidermiscurrent flowing directly dermis It reaches the middle layer of the skin. The lengths of the needles used vary between 0.5 and 3 mm.
Depending on the skin feature, it is possible to apply results-oriented treatments with much less damage by giving the current through the entire needle or only from the needle tip. Depending on the purpose, the physician can decide on the type, depth and energy of the needles.
How does the fractional radiofrequency method work?
In the fractional radiofrequency method, as a result of the transfer of radiofrequency energy directly to the dermis, which is the middle layer of the skin, with needles, a rapid breakdown is provided in the collagen fibers with the coagulation that occurs here.
As a result of this, the reorganized fibers become to provide contraction and recovery in a short time. With the stimulation of fibroblast cells responsible for skin regeneration, new collagen production is initiated. Increased elastin and collagen provide the elimination of existing skin problems and rejuvenation of the skin.
What are the usage areas of the fractional radiofrequency method?
It can be used in the treatment of many problems such as the treatment of skin wrinkles, skin regeneration, sagging of the face, neck, décolleté, scar treatment, treatment of acne and acne scars, treatment of skin blemishes, treatment of skin cracks due to pregnancy and weight loss, and tightening of pores.
How is fractional radiofrequency application done? How is the recovery process?
Thanks to new technologies, the application is more comfortable than before. However, the pain sensation that may occur with anesthetic creams before the application can be minimized. The fact that fractional radiofrequency application can be made in all seasons provides an advantage compared to laser applications.
The application takes about 30 minutes for the face area. Generally, 2-3 sessions with 3-week intervals are sufficient to improve wrinkles and skin quality, while more applications may be required for the treatment of scars and acne scars. After the application, there may be a redness that usually regresses within 1 day, and then a thin crust.
The patient can return to his daily life with suitable concealers the next day. While the effect is observed within a few weeks after each application, the maximum effect occurs 3-4 weeks after the last application. Regular use of moisturizing cream and sunscreen should not be neglected after the application.
Is it an application suitable for combination treatments?
We can combine various treatment methods to solve the current problem to get more effective and faster results. Fractional radiofrequency application can also be combined with other methods. According to the problem; It can be applied together with focused ultrasound (HIFU), IPL spot treatment methods, prp and mesotherapies, filling and toxin applications. Of course, sequencing is important in combined applications, for this the physician will make the most accurate treatment planning.
What is post-treatment care like?
Regular moisturizer should be used after the application and intense sun contact should be avoided. A broad-spectrum sunscreen should be used, and skin-irritating applications such as scrubs, fibers, and peeling should be avoided.
For a healthy skin, consult your specialist.
