Exion Fractional RF Microneedling

The Ultimate Skin Solution: A Breakthrough Microneedling & Radiofrequency Treatment

What is EXION Fractional RF Microneedling?

EXION RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that combines the collagen-inducing benefits of microneedling and the tissue-tightening advantages of radiofrequency energy to improve your skin’s overall appearance, texture, and health. Also, by utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), this treatment can reach up to 8mm of depth without a full needle insertion, reducing your discomfort and maximizing results for a single-pass procedure.

What is EXION Face?

Designed for more delicate areas of the face, the EXION Face applicator boosts hyaluronic acid without using any needles. By combining monopolar RF and targeted ultrasound, this treatment can stimulate the fibroblasts within those deeper layers of the skin. This stimulation increases hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin production, enhancing skin firmness, hydration, and overall appearance.

How Does EXION Fractional RF Microneedling Work?

Exion works by combining the benefits of microneedling and radio frequency, enhancing the effectiveness of both treatments.

Microneedling Alone

Microneedling uses fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin that cause it to start a natural repair process, generating the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. These proteins help improve your skin’s strength and elasticity.

Radiofrequency (RF) Alone

Radiofrequency takes low-energy radiation and heats the deeper layers of your skin to encourage collagen structures to tighten and increase production, helping to firm and tighten your skin.

Microneedling & Radiofrequency (RF) Working Together

EXION RF Microneedling combines the treatments above to directly deliver radiofrequency energy into deeper layers of the skin for a more direct and less invasive approach. With the thermal gradient below the needle, it can reach greater depths without needing to be fully inserted. This helps maximize the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin with minimal discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

EXION RF Microneedling is minimally invasive (EXION Face is non-invasive) and generally well-tolerated by most patients. Some individuals may experience mild warmth or a prickling sensation in the administered areas during treatment. While numbing cream can be applied beforehand to minimize any discomfort, many find the procedure tolerable without it. However, individual experiences with pain or discomfort can vary, so it's advisable to discuss your comfort level and any concerns with your healthcare provider before treatment.

Depending on individual skin characteristics, the area treated, and the number of sessions received, the duration of EXION results can vary. Many patients, though, have noticed that improvements in skin texture and firmness can last for up to a year or more. To maintain and extend the longevity of results, it's recommended to undergo a series of treatments and follow a proper skincare routine as advised by your healthcare provider. Additionally, regular maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the benefits over time.

Depending on your skincare goals and condition, the number of recommended EXION treatments can vary. During a consultation, your healthcare provider will assess your unique skincare needs and recommend a tailored treatment plan. However, a typical patient might undergo a series of 4 to 6 EXION treatments spaced approximately 3 to 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. These treatments are designed to improve skin texture, firmness, and overall appearance gradually.

EXION Fractional RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses microneedle insertions into the skin to achieve results. EXION Face is a non-invasive treatment for more delicate areas of the skin, such as under the eyes, and does not require needle insertion.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Our Reviews

I highly recommend Distinctive Dermatology for any skin issues you may have!! My son and myself both have been patients there for quite a few years. We have received nothing but the best care! All the staff is really nice and makes you feel welcome to be there. I see Dr. Tobin on a regular basis (and that is who my son sees when needed) and really like her and highly recommend her but I have also seen Dr. Sutton a few times and really like her and highly recommend her too! Both are knowledgeable in their field! Dr. Tobin is concerned and cares about what the problem is, how it could be affecting you, and does her very best to take care of the problem! If something isn’t working for you she will do her best to find something that does work! She has my skin looking amazing and for that I’m grateful!! Also, the nurses are really good at returning phone calls to take care of any questions or issues you might have! Everyone in the office is respectful, efficient, and professional!
