Fractional vs Traditional Radiofrequency- Everything You Need to Know.

Fractional vs Traditional Radiofrequency- Everything You Need to Know.

As we age, our bodies show signs of aging in the form of loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles, spots, and pigmentation. To combat these skin issues, we recommend choosing from two revolutionary treatments- RadioFrequency or Fractional Radiofrequency. Let’s take a deep dive into the difference and benefits of both treatments.

Traditional Radiofrequency therapy, also commonly referred to as Radiofrequency skin-tightening, which is a non-surgical method that aids in the tightening of skin. This procedure mainly uses energy waves to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin. This heat boosts the production of collagen and elastin which have a tightening and brightening effect on the skin.


Benefits of Traditional Radiofrequency include-

RF is a versatile treatment:

One of the most amazing benefits of Radiofrequency is that it is a versatile treatment, meaning it can be used both on the face and body. It is very beneficial for tightening of loose skin on the face, arms, neck, abdomen, or thighs. Additionally, RF is an ideal procedure for any skin type, colour, or texture.

Quick and easy:

A typical RF session is fast and causes minimal discomfort. It lasts a minimum of one hour and requires minimal to no downtime.

Safe and reliable:

RF is a safe procedure. It is a non-surgical treatment that requires minimal to no recovery time. It is safe for all skin types and produces instant results. Some clients are known to have experienced temporary side effects like mild pain, swelling, or redness in the treated area. Using a cold compress on the area after the treatment is recommended.

Fractional Radiofrequency is one of the most effective anti-aging technologies that uses ultrafine needles to gently puncture the skin to deliver RF energy. This results in the production of collagen and elastin which plump the skin and return it to its youthful state.

Benefits of Fractional Radiofrequency include-

Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles:

Fractional Radiofrequency treatment accelerates the production of collagen in the skin. The heat produced by the energy penetrates deeper into the skin and helps smoothen out the most severe fine lines and wrinkles.

Penetrates deep into the skin:

Fractional Radiofrequency delivers heat deep into the layers of skin without causing any damage to the epidermis or top layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen which aids in the smoothening of fine lines and tightening of the skin.

Combats acne scars:

Texture-wise, acne scars are thick patches of damaged skin. Opposed to micro-needling, Fractional Radiofrequency is able to break down scar tissue better. The therapist is also able to focus higher levels of RF energy on the damaged skin to produce better results.

Other benefits of RF and FRF include improved skin texture, even skin tone, reduction in the appearance of large pores, tight and firm skin, reduction in appearance of pigmentation and sun damage, and bright complexion.

Both Radiofrequency and Fractional Radiofrequency treatments are the ones to go far if you are looking for long-lasting, consistent results.
