This is not your typical "micro-needling" with the little pen. This is a TRANSFORMATIVE treatment!
The difference between this and traditional micro-needling is the difference between a pan-handler playing a guitar on the street and the New York Philharmonic!
Micro-needling and skin tightening that improves fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out.
As we age, the appearance of wrinkles and skin discolorations like age spots become more prevalent and the pressure to do something about grows. More than 70% of men and women over 30 are bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes and skin texture and/or discoloration, and over 60% are bothered by wrinkles near the cheeks and mouth, lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, forehead and neck/chest.
Now there is a new solution for correcting these issues, without the downtime of a laser, without the pain, in half the time of other micro-needling devices, and with significantly more result than traditional micro-needling. The Secret is Secret RF.
Secret RF is a micro-needling system that uses radio frequency to rejuvenate the skin. Secret RF’s micro-needles smoothly penetrate the skin, delivering energy at various depths in the epidermis and dermis to induce collagen regeneration while sparing the skin’s surface.
Treatments are performed in-office and can address a variety of skin issues, including wrinkles, age spots and scars.
How does the Secret RF Needling work?
Secret RF uses minimally invasive gold plated micro-needles to deliver precisely controlled RF energy directly into the deeper layers of the dermis avoiding damage to the skin surface. This produces a fractionated denaturing of dermal tissue (similar to fractionated laser) inducing new collagen and elastin production. Unlike a fractionated laser, however, there is minimal damage to the skin surface resulting in a safer treatment with minimal downtime. This simply is not possible with typical “skin-pens.”
What are the benefits of the Secret-RF Micro-Needling?
Tightens skin, minimizes pores, reduces scarring and acne scarring, lightens pigmentation, dramatically reduces wrinkles and stretch marks.
These channels allow far better delivery of Platelet Rich Plasma, or Growth Factors, deep into the tissue, something the “skin pen” cannot do.
Does Secret-Rf work on darker skin types?
The treatment is safe on all skin types and ethnicities (unlike many lasers that can’t be used on certain types of skin)
What are the risks and side effects of Secret-RF?
This is a very safe cosmetic procedure with few side effects and little down time. Side effects can include:
- Redness lasting 1-2 days
- Minor swelling lasting up to 1-2 days
- Minor bruising (rare)
- Skin color changes (rare and most common in dark skin patients)
- Patterning of treated skin (temporary) 1-2 days at most, and can be covered with makeup after 4 hrs.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Your skin will be red, warm and tingling immediately after the treatment and subside within a few hours. Some redness and minor swelling can last up to 24-48 hours. Patients will return to work the next day without any obvious effects. Occasionally a fine crust or scab may develop that looks like dots from the treatment. This is normal so do not pick or scrub this off and follow all post-treatment recommendations.
How long will it take to see results?
Collagen production and remodeling are seen after 2-3 weeks. Most patients will see significant improvement after 2-3 treatments. The more treatments you have and the greater the intensity of the treatment, the more improvement you will see.
