To learn how microneedling with radiofrequency can transform your complexion, please schedule your consultation today at (212) 688-5882. We help patients from Manhattan, Woodside, and all over the world achieve their cosmetic goals.
A Quick Overview of Fractora and Morpheus 8
Fractora and Morpheus8 are different microneedling tips that can be attached to the same treatment handpiece. These interchangable needles deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin while creating the beneficial micro-punctures that make microneedling treatments so effective.
Both of these non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments deliver a uniform pattern of fractionated radiofrequency energy. The energy travels beneath the surface of your skin where it creates a gentle and beneficial warming effect. The warmth then stimulates the production of skin-tightening proteins like collagen and elastin.
The benefits that patients can experience from a Fractora or Morpheus8 treatment include:
- Increased collagen production
- Improved acne scars
- Reduced wrinkles
- Faded stretch marks
- Tightened pores
What is the Difference Between These Microneedling Tips?
The Morhpeus8 needles can penetrate the skin deeper than any other microneedling device. Morpheus8 can penetrate up to 4mm whereas Fractora can only penetrate up to 3mm. These longer needles allow our dermatologists to deliver radiofrequency energy to the exact depth that would benefit your skin the most.
The needles on the Morpheus8 tip are also sharper than those on Fractora, allowing them to smoothly pass in and out of the skin while creating tiny punctures. These micro-punctures send a signal to your body, telling it to heal and rejuvenate the area. When your body responds, cosmetic concerns in the treatment area improve.
Fractora is the ideal treatment tip for patients with acne and acne scarring. If you are looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment, Morpheus8 may be more appropriate for you. Our experienced dermatologists will determine which microneedling tip to use during your RF microneedling session.
Candidates for Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Many people can benefit from a Fractora or Morpheus8 treatment. The treatments are safe to use on a wide variety of skin types. There is little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can sometimes accompany other resurfacing methods. There is also minimal to no downtime.
These treatments might be ideal for you if you struggle with common issues such as:
- Acne Scarring
- Sun damage
- Pigmentation issues
- Textural concerns
- Lines and wrinkles
- Active acne
- Large pores
Every treatment is completely customized to treat your specific concerns. Our dermatologists will develop your individualized plan during your consultation.
Your RF Microneedling Treatment and Results
Your treatment should not be painful, as our dermatologists will administer a topical anesthetic before your session. If you wish to be more comfortable or you feel any treatment anxiety, please take advantage of our PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System. The flow of nitrous oxide is patient-controlled, and the calming effect fades quickly after your session.
During your Fractora or Morpheus8 treatment, our knowledgeable dermatologists will pass the device over your skin, creating precise punctures while delivering radiofrequency energy.
The treatment time will vary depending on your unique skin concerns and the areas that you wish to address. After the session is finished, you will be given instructions to follow to care for your skin as you wait for your results to appear. Results can often be seen after one treatment, though multiple sessions may offer more dramatic improvements.
