The probe head used in the MNRF treatment has multiple small needles along with the ability to release radiofrequency waves. The idea of combining these two to help the body by first breaking down the ill-formed connective tissue (scar) and then stimulating new connective tissue (collagen and elastin) in its' place.

The therapist will first clean the target areas with an alcohol swab and then apply numbing cream. The numbing cream is usually allowed to stay for 30-45 minutes. This ensures that you will not feel any pain.
Your dermatologist will apply the machine over the target areas. It is ensured that the machine settings are adjusted to your specific requirements. The needles cause micro-injuries and along with the radiofrequency, this stimulates new connective tissue.
Immediately after the treatment, a soothing agent will be applied to make sure that you are comfortable afterwards. You will also need to follow the other instructions which will guide you on what you need to do once you leave the clinic.
