Fractional microneedle radiofrequency (microneedle thermolifting) is a new concept of fractional treatments, based on obtaining a strong thermal effect in the dermis, omitting the epidermis.
At Ambasada Urody we perform microneedle thermolifting with medical device DeAgeEX. The treatment uses micro-puncturing of the skin and radio frequency (RF) field to heat the skin volumetric under its surface. Thanks to multiple actions in its subsequent layers, we obtain a 3D lifting effect - spatial skin firming. The procedure has the advantages of an invasive procedure, while being minimally invasive, because despite the use of high power, the skin does not burn.
Fractional microneedle radiofrequency consists in simultaneous puncturing of the skin with microneedles and heating with electromagnetic radiation at radio frequency RF. The RF electric pulse is delivered directly to the dermis, bypassing the epidermis.
The treatment is performed using a head equipped with 49 microneedles capable of emitting electromagnetic radiation. Micro-needles are inserted to the desired depth of the skin (from 0.5 to 3.5 mm). After the puncture, a high energy density RF current is automatically applied through the tips of the microneedles, and the multi-stage power regulation (100 levels) allows for precise adjustment of the width of the thermal microdamage to the type of treatment. The radiation energy penetrates deep into the skin, heating the tissues. The skin structure is partially damaged, which stimulates the regeneration process and the formation of new, young tissue with a proper structure.
Thanks to the use of insulated microneedles, the RF current has a thermal effect only at a given depth of the dermis and does not thermally damage its top layers. The ultramodern system of introducing microneedles under the skin guarantees correct puncture even with a large surface curvature. Thanks to optimized parameters, small diameter of microneedles and high RF power, pain sensations and healing period are minimal. The patient may return to normal activity within 1-2 days.
