Radiofrequency Microneedling: Morpheus and Fractora
Resurface your skin and remodel collagen.
What is Radiofrequency microneedling?
Morpheus8 and Fractora are Health Canada approved fractional skin treatments that stimulate the production and growth of collagen fibers in the deeper dermal layers of the skin. By targeting the dermis, these devices are able to remodel skin tissue in order to achieve a smoother, more radiant, youthful appearance
At Captivating Aesthetics we only offer the most recent and advanced treatments that are Health Canada approved. After carefully discussing your treatment goals during a face to face consultation, we create a clean and safe treatment environment for those patients that are new or known to medical microneedling.
The benefit of Inmode’s Morpheus8 and Fractora is that the technology is “color blind”, and therefore safe to use on all areas of the body in all skin-types*. The unique properties of these devices allow us to treat even darker skin tones. Any area that can benefit from skin resurfacing, scar remodelling and subdermal ( the deep part of the skin) renewal can be safely treated. Another unique benefit of Morpheus* is its ability to reach the subcutaneous fat allowing us to use it for fat destruction and remodelling and contouring.
How does radiofrequency microneedling help?
RF Microneedling is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is a minimally invasive treatment that applies microtrauma along with a radio-frequency current to the dermal layer of the skin. The combination of controlled micro-trauma with radio-frequency results in optimum collagen and elastin stimulation rendering superior results.

Process & Treatment
Typically 3 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are indicated for optimal results. * Certain skin types may need to follow a pre-treatment skincare regimen in order to minimize risk of hyperpigmentation, and to ensure optimal results. This will be discussed during your formal consultation.
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically most noticeable results are seen 6 weeks after the treatment as new collagen networks start to form. Actual skin improvement continues up to three months and longer after the final treatment.
The actual process of getting Morpheus Microneedling is simple and time efficient.
At Captivating Aesthetics, the first step is to book a consultation with Dr Wilhene Zwanepoel. During this consultation a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history will be taken. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears and concerns in regards to the actual treatment itself. Your full treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be discussed.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
Same day treatment is often possible and is usually discussed at the time of booking the consultation.
After booking our friendly team will send you a link to our patient portal, which allows you to complete the necessary forms in the comfort and safety of your own home. Once you arrive for your appointment, our front office team will get a set of baseline photos, and your treatment provider will meet with you to ensure you understand the procedure before commencing.
To ensure your comfort, a strong topical anaesthetic will be applied for an hour before your treatment.,
The treatment area will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Specific treatment zones may be mapped out. Sometimes a nerve block (better known as freezing) is used in certain areas to anaesthetize the area, making the procedure virtually pain free. The actual treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete, where-after a skin-soothing mask will be applied to complete your spa-like experience and optimize healing time.
Photographs may be done immediately after the procedure You will also receive specific after-care directions. Captivating offers package pricing, and a post care kit will be included with every package purchased. This will all be discussed during your pre-treatment consultation.
This will be discussed during your consultation, as it may depend on your specific treatment combination. Typically the actual social downtime is minimal, and mineral makeup can be applied as soon as 1-2 days after the actual procedure. Micro lesions (needle entry) along with some redness may be seen for a few days to about 2 weeks after the treatment.
As each individual has very specific goals and needs, every treatment plan differs. This will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation. Prices range from $1200 and up. Package pricing is available. Post skincare treatment kits will be provided with your package purchase. Our pricing includes a topical serum to create a nutrient rich environment, as well as a soothing post treatment mask to minimize social down time and any possible discomfort.
