Common Questions

Frequently asked questions about RF Microneedling.

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. Microneedling is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that boosts collagen, reducing wrinkles, slowing the effects of ageing, and restoring your skin to a more youthful appearance.

Fractora RF is safe for everyone, and though it’s most commonly used on the face and neck, Fractora RF can treat any area of the body. It is also safe for all skin tones because it targets the deeper layers of the skin—unlike lasers, which target the superficial (topmost) layers of your skin. At SkinFX Canada, we can customize the needle size and amount of radio frequency energy delivered, to best target your skin concerns. Book a consultation with us today so we can help you attain your skin goals, effectively, and with only a few treatments. 

We do recommend, for a week before your treatment, stay out of the sun, discontinue use of topical retinoids, and keep your skin well-hydrated by moisturizing in the morning and evening. You should also avoid anticoagulants, like alcohol, aspirin, and ibuprofen, for at least a week beforehand to reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising. Fractora RF treatment is easy and safe, but you can follow these procedures above to ensure the best possible treatment.

Fractora RF can treat any area of the body. The most commonly treated areas include the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discolouration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
You’ll be able to notice some difference in skin firmness after the swelling has gone down, but real results will become apparent a week or two later, once your body has had time to produce new collagen. Your results will improve over the next four to six months, and you’ll need annual follow-up treatments to maintain them.

The results from RF Microneedling are typically permanent, however, as you grow older collagen levels deplete naturally so this has a counter effect on your rejuvenated skin. To maintain your RF Microneedling results you’ll need annual follow-up treatments.

Depending on your specific situation you can expect to have between 1-6 treatment sessions. Micro-needling with Fractora RF works for all skin tones (including darker skin tones). The number of treatments required varies on each individual’s skin condition. We recommend you schedule a free consultation with us and we can tell you exactly how many treatments you’ll require.

After your treatment, your provider will send you home with detailed aftercare instructions. You shouldn’t experience too much discomfort, but you will have some mild reddening of the skin and some possible slight swelling could occur. This will disappear in a couple of days. You might also have some light track marks, scabbing, peeling, or even oozing for up to 48 hours. Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Your fresh new skin will be more sensitive, and making a regular habit of wearing sunscreen will help protect against future skin damage.

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 48 hours after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters and skin conditions.

Fractora RF is generally an extremely safe device, however, a few minor downsides include:

  • It is typically a bit painful—Numbing cream is required
  • Redness and swelling of the treated area for up to 48 hours after treatment.
