About RF Microneedling
Hinsdale, IL board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. George Kouris utilizes a unique technique that produces fantastic outcomes for our patients using a treatment called Fractora radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF laser remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for its skin tightening effects. Fractora laser therapy utilizes heat to promote the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This treatment could be combined with other nonsurgical techniques to maximize the outcomes. At Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we frequently incorporate this new process into our Hinsdale, IL patients' skin treatments to produce healthier skin, a much smoother feel, and a luminous complexion.

If you're 40 years old or older and are beginning to find smile lines, age spots, discoloration, and other skin irregularities (which include age and sunlight exposure), Fractora RF microneedling may be the right treatment for you. Fractora may be a great option if you want to:
- Firm your skin, creating a more refreshed look
- Improve skin feel, pigment, and tone
- Fix skin imperfections, like discoloration and blood vessels
- Minimize the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Improve acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, more luminous look
Fractora utilizes an instrument (with tiny needles at the end) that's rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin forms as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. Combining this innovative method with InMode's radiofrequency laser technologies have enabled us to maximize the outcomes for our Hinsdale, IL patients.
This procedure is quite simple. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden micro-needles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels, which offer cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect
Your treatment sessions will be performed in the Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery facility with the help of a numbing solution to reduce any discomfort. During your procedure, the Fractora handpiece will glide over the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. You can anticipate tiny pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours after the session, which will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over a month following a microneedling with RF treatment. Optimal results generally take 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost of your RF microneedling treatment will vary on your condition and the number of RF microneedling sessions needed to achieve the best results. During your first visit, our team can go over all your questions and estimate the cost of your treatment.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Each patient is unique and some individuals may need more treatments than others. Our team will take the time to perform a thorough assessment of your skin and listen to your goals to help determine the appropriate number of sessions for you. On average, most patients receive 3 – 4 treatments spaced one month apart.
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
RF microneedling is safe and effective for most skin types and can be used on almost any area of the face and body. RF microneedling treatments offer stunning results and minimal downtime for patients who aren't ready for a facelift or body lift surgery. RF microneedling is also a great option if you want to refresh the overall appearance of your skin a few years after a surgical lift.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is applied to the target area, most patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment. Throughout your treatment, our team will check in to make sure you are feeling comfortable. Once the numbing cream wears off, you may feel mild discomfort for a short time as your skin is healing itself.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
While RF microneedling can deliver amazing results on its own, you may consider combining it with another treatment for even more impressive improvements. During your consultation, our team will listen to all your concerns and goals about your face and body before recommending RF microneedling and/or other treatments.
