Nettle™ Fractional RF Technology
The fractional RF technology applies high-frequency and minimally-intrusive radio waves to specific skin layers to produce heat, which stimulates fibroblasts and produces collagen and elastin. Ultimately, this process significantly contributes to skin rejuvenation. Fractional RF applies radio waves to the skin with fractional needles and can produce different effects in the skin’s lower layers without exposing the skin surface to heat; thus, significantly reducing treatment side effects.
Functional Mechanism of Nettle™
The functional mechanism of Nettle™ is fractional or multipolar application to skin layers.
- In the fractional method, a set of very fine needles are injected to specific depths at different areas of the skin through the RF device’s fully-automated mechanism.
- A very fine radio wave current with specific intensity and duration flows between the needles. This exchange of waves produces heat and positively affects the skin dermis.
- In the multipolar approach, the RF current is established between pairs of four electrodes with anodes and cathodes, and affects a wide and deep area of the skin.
- In both methods, RF waves produce heat in the skin and stimulate growth factors to initiate regeneration.
- The secretion of growth factors activates fibroblasts, and the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid helps improve skin tissue.
Nettle™ Handpieces Design
Nettle™’s unique design includes two light and ergonomic vibration-free handpieces that provide pleasant use for doctors for a long time.
Fractional Needle Design
Nettle™’s 5×5 and 7×7 needles are designed to produce the best results with the shortest convalescence period.
Multipolar Electrode Design
The multipolar handpiece tip has four electrodes with anodes and cathodes at specific intervals. The electrodes are fully bio compatible with the skin and provide a painless and comfortable treatment for the patient.
