MNRF Treatment at FMS Skin & Hair Clinics
MNRF is a innovative and latest cosmetic procedure which is simple, safe and minimally invasive. It causes minimum damage to superficial layers of the skin, while treating the deeper layers of the skin. It has a relatively lesser downtime. It is one of the best treatments for darker skin type.
It uses tiny needles to make multiple micro injuries on the skin and it uses these micro channels to deliver radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin. By this process, it helps in stimulating body’s natural response to stimulate collagen production which further tightens the skin resulting in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
MNRF is a multiple purpose procedure used in treating acne scars, surgical scars, wrinkles and fine lines, skin hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, stretch marks, skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, open pores etc.
MNRF Treatment Procedure:
- In your 1st appointment, thorough consultation is done by the dermatologist. Depending on your medical history, degree of scarring and type of skin, either single procedure or combination of procedures are advised.
- After examination, the face is cleansed with water and topical anesthesia is applied for 45mins
- After 45mins, the cream is wiped off. The parameters are set by the doctor
- The microneedle cartridge is placed on the surface of the skin and then shot is delivered where the microneedles are penetrated into the skin. During the shot, RF energy is released through the tip of the needles into the deeper layers of the skin which induces dermal coagulation
- There might be mild oozing or bleeding which is controlled.
- Post procedure – antibiotic cream, followed by moisturiser and sunscreen are applied.
There may be mild redness and swelling, which subsides with in few hours. There will be formation of tiny scabs, which fall off in 3-5days. Further results will be due to stimulation of collagen and elastin which are required for the skin to look healthier and firmer. MNRF can be repeated once in 4 weeks and usually, 4 to 6 sessions might be required.
The equipment used is FRAXIS DUO – which is a combination of MNRF and CO2 laser. It is completely safe and FDA approved.
Acne scarring is a very distressing problem. To overcome this condition, various treatment modalities such as chemical peels, subcision, and fractional lasers are available, but with suboptimal results.
Recently, newer techniques such as MNRF have shown to be clinically efficient and effective for moderate to severe acne scars with substantial improvement in softening of scar contours as well as the reduction in scar depth.
While pain tolerance is individual-oriented, most people respond to MNRF well and have little pain. Numbing cream is also applied to reduce discomfort to the patient.
There is no risk of side effects such as pigmentation as this technique does not directly damage the epidermis.
Do not use topical agents that may increase the sensitivity of skin such as retinoids, exfoliants, scrubs at least 5-7 days prior to treatment. Avoid unprotected sun exposure for 2 weeks before the procedure. Avoid blood-thinning agents such as aspirin for 1 week prior to the procedure.
MNRF can improve the skin tone and texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, shrinks large open pores, age spots, sagging of skin, fights stretch marks etc.
MNRF can cost around 10,000 to 25,000 per session. The overall costs depend upon the severity of the condition, size of the area being treated.
Like all cosmetic procedures, MNRF is not without risk. The most common side effect is bleeding, bruising, erythema, crusting, pain, infections, needle track marks within first few days after the procedure.
Avoid sun exposure or sunburns 2 weeks before the procedure. No waxing, No Shaving, or depilatory creams to the area being treated for 5 to 7 days before the procedure to avoid skin irritation.
Apply sunscreen and moisturizers after your treatment. Avoid excessive workouts or activities for 48 hours after the procedure Do not rub or prick the skin. Apply icepacks to reduce discomfort and use gentle cleansers, avoid wearing makeup until the next day.
MNRF treatment effects are comparable to lasers, but with less downtime. One can resume daily activities within 24 to 72 hours after MNRF, but with laser resurfacing, your recovery time may take up to 10 days and the chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is more with lasers.
Sessions may vary from 3 to 5 depending on the severity and the type of condition.
Treatment can be done once in 4 to 8 weeks intervals since the time for collagen remodelling lasts for around 4 to 6 weeks.
