What is Secret RF
Secret RF is a novel fractional Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling system for tissue coagulation and hemostasis designed to stimulate and remodel the collagen and address the common signs of aging. It is ideally suited for use on patients who wish to revitalize and refresh the appearance of their skin on all skin types.
How Does It Work?
Secret RF Microneedling uses specialized needles energized with Radio Frequency (RF) to gently puncture your skin surface, creates controlled injury in order to promote the natural healing process of the skin while delivering RF energy. As your skin heals from these scares, your body's collagen production becomes active resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
How Is Secret RF Different From The Traditional Microneedling?
Traditional Microneedling treatment without radiofrequency technology uses a specialized device that stimulates the skin by creating micro-injuries in order to endorse the natural healing power of the skin which results in the production of skin-firming proteins like elastin and collagen. Secret RF adds Radio Frequency (RF) energy to this traditional microneedling technique to further stimulate the creation of growth factors by using specialized needles to create micro-punctures where the radiofrequency energy will penetrate through. This allows the result to be more powerful than traditional microneedling treatment.
What to Expect During Procedure
Depending on the area of your face or body being treated and the type of device used, the procedure is well-tolerated and in some cases virtually painless, feeling only a mild prickling sensation. However, in the case of medical-grade rollers, your practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin prior to treatment to reduce any pain and discomfort.
Downtime After Secret RF
Your skin will be pink or red in appearance for a couple of hours following medical skin needling treatment, much like a sunburn, with some minor bleeding and bruising possible, depending on the aggressiveness of the procedure, i.e. the length of the needle used for the particular indication being treated and the number of times it is rolled across the treatment area. Your skin may also feel warm, tight, and itchy for a short while. This should subside in 12-48 hours.
How long will it last?
Although results vary depending on the individual condition, on average, the result usually last 12-18 month before it will require another booster session!
Any side effect?
Side effects or risks are minimal with this type of treatment and typically include minor flaking or dryness of the skin, with scab formation in rare cases.
Is it painful?
Many of our patients expressed that they felt very comfortable during the treatment. But if you are sensitive to the pain, we offer pain management options as well!
How long does it take to see results from Secret RF microneedling?
Many patients notice an improvement in the first few weeks after the initial treatment session. Improvement usually lasts over six months after the procedure.
