Micro-needling is an approved electronic fractional device that is used to rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin surface by reducing fine lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. The concept of Micro Needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical injury such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. As the Micro Needling device moves across the skin, it makes pinpoint punctures to create very minor micro-“injuries.” In response to the perceived “injury,” a cascade of growth factors is released, which in turn triggers new collagen synthesis.
This process has two major benefits – it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed through the surface of the skin. By persistently triggering this healing process with a series of Micro Needling treatments, the body keeps repairing the skin incrementally and cumulatively to offer a result similar to fractional laser treatments or chemical peels, but without the side effects and extended downtime.
The Deluxe Skin Micro-Needle Fractional RF System is the ideal technology for skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation by utilising minimally invasive micro-needles to deliver controlled RF energy directly into various depths of the skin ensuring the RF heat is penetrated much deeper, leaving the top skin layer cool. The combination of microneedles and radiofrequency leads to a more substantial improvement in skin quality and texture. This combination also allows the procedure to treat a variety of concerns such as:
The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Once the desired result has been achieved, it is important to maintain collagen stimulation by returning for quarterly maintenance treatments. While most commonly used on the face, Micro Needling can also be used to restore and regenerate the skin on the neck, chest, and hands.
Micro Needling is safe for all colours of skin and all types of skin. When doing this treatment for acne scars, pore size and anti-aging we recommend 4-6 sessions, each about 4 weeks apart. In the case of surgical scars and stretch marks on the body, usually 6-8 sessions each 5-6 weeks apart are recommended.

How does it work?
How long does a pedicure take?
A treatment can take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area involved. This typically incudes a 20 min numbing period before the treatment can be performed.
What are the benefits?
There are numerous benefits in both the design and the treatment of micro needling fractional RF Technology.
How long does recovery take?
This is very much dependant on the individual natural recovery and metabolic rate. We have seen that the face typically has a quicker recovery time compared to arms and stomach. However, this treatment has long term results so expect up to 1 week of recovery time.
Do I need to prepare anything in advance?
Prior to coming to the clinic, ensure your skin is clan and has no make up. Clients are asked to have a apply numbing cream to the treatment are at least 20 mins before. This is usually dependant on individual pain threshold. As microneedles are penetrated directly into the dermis, this can be a painful experience for some. However, with application of numbing cream the pain is dramatically decreased and the treatment becomes a fairly easy to administer and endure.
What to expect as post treatment?
Mild redness and swelling may occur a few hours and up to 24 hours after treatment. Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Moisturisers and broad spectrum sunscreens are highly recommended during this recovery phase.
RF energy once delivered into the deep layers of the dermis induces regenerative processes in the skin to begin. In 4 days needle marks will fade away completely and the swelling will subside in most patients while patients will begin to feel a noticeable difference in skin tone, smoothness and elasticity. So far fractional RF microneedle therapy is a great anti-ageing technique.
Who is an ideal candidate?
People who are suffering from acne scars, facial lines, wrinkles or tired and loose skin on their face due to age, genetics or lifestyle factors can get fractional RF MicroNeedle treatment to stimulate the natural body processes that make us look younger.
