Fractora and Intracel – Fractional Radiofrequency for Firm Skin

Fractional radiofrequency is the new combination of two methods for skin rejuvenation: the microneedling method which uses the Dermaroller® and radiofrequency, the effects of which have already been shown to advantage in the  Thermage® and BodyTite™  methods.

What does Fractional radiofrequency do?

Fractional radiofrequency

  • stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin
  • firms and reviews wrinkled skin (elastosis), creases and upper lip wrinkles
  • refines large-pored skin
  • alleviates photodamage, enlarged capillaries, age spots
  • improves the skin structure of scars and stretch marks

Even just a few days after treatment, the skin feels significantly firmer. The final result develops over a period of three to four months.

How is it performed?

During fractional radiofrequency treatment, the needles of a hand piece act as electrodes. Depending on the desired depth of treatment, they are only placed lightly on the skin or inserted more deeply into the skin. Using bipolar radiofrequency, a local electric field up to two centimeters deep develops between the needles.

Fractional radiofrequency stimulates regeneration of the skin in two ways:

  • Due to being heated up in the electrical field between the needles, the collagen fibers contract and stimulate the production of new collagen.
  • The microinjuries stimulate the skin's biological self-healing powers.

For treatment with fractional radiofrequency at Rosenpark Clinic, we electively use the systems from Fractora® and Intracel – with the same effect.

Is any form of anesthesia required?

The treatment is performed under local anesthesia. We kindly ask you to be at the clinic one hour before your date, so that we can appyl the cream.

Additional options for your pleasant, painless treatment and further information can be found under anesthesia.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Depending on the size of the surface, the treatment lasts 30 minutes to 2 hours. Then you can resume normal activities without any limitations, you don´t even have to avoid sunlight. Final results of the treatmet can be seen after two to three months.
