HOW DOES RF FRACTORA MICRONEEDLING WORK?
When radio frequency and Microneedling are combined in this single innovative treatment the result is a fast and very effective treatment to provide skin tightening and resurfacing. This is truly a game changer. Radio frequency treatments send controlled energy wavelengths through the skin to safely and gently heat the deeper layers of skin. This combination stimulates the collagen and elastin production even more than the individual treatments and works well for darker skin as well.
Skin aging happens simply with the passage of time but is influenced also by stress, smoking, diet and sun exposure. The integrity of skin is maintained by elastin and collagen and the decrease or gradual loss of both of these can take a toll on your appearance and be very frustrating.
At Claremore and Pryor microneedling Fractora treatments combine controlled radio frequency energy that heats the deep layers of skin which stimulates collagen and triggers the revitalizing process on a deep molecular level. Skin naturally produces both collagen and elastin to repair the skin every day. This extra stimulus for repair helps to fill in wrinkles and scars producing more plump, toned and smoother skin.
