The Secret RF is finally out. This device combines micro needling with radio frequency, offering skin one of the best chances for change in texture and in quality. Secret RF is ideal for improving aging skin, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Treatments are safe and effective for all skin types. Treatments can be performed on face, neck and body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Secret RF uses insulated and semi-insulated micro needles to deliver radio frequency (RF) energy to varying skin layers. RF energy can even reach the deeper layers of skin where is is most beneficial. It is in these deeper layers (the dermis), collagen and elastin production occurs and tissue is regenerated.
While most other devices deposit energy only in the top layers of skin, Secret RF delivers energy via the micro needles to target areas below the surface (epidermis). Using insulated micro needles to deliver RF energy, the epidermis is preserved, and risks of hyper-pigmentation and downtime are significantly reduced.
Intensity of energy, energy depth and pulse duration are adjustable with Secret RF. With this kind of control, precision treatments and superior outcomes are possible in comparison to most other devices.
WHAT IS THE SECRET RF PROCEDURE LIKE?
Patients typically are in the office for approximately 2 hours.
During the first hour, we take photos of the areas to be treated. We then apply numbing cream to this area for patient comfort.
While much literature on Secret RF states the treatment is a quick 15-20 minute session, it realistically takes about an hour for face and neck treatments. For areas such as hands and neck only, treatment time is greatly reduced.
The Secret RF treatment is tolerable for most patients. During the treatment, most patients say they feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area.
It is recommended that patients refrain from wearing makeup for 24 hours. Minor redness and swelling can last from 12-72 hours. A sandpaper feel to skin is possible for up to a week post-treatment.
Patients can return to normal activities the following day.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS + HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Generally, 1-2 treatments are recommended for most patients with good skin quality. Additional treatments may be required for patients with scars, stretchmarks and moderate to more severe skin aging and sun damage issues.
Results vary depending on the individual.
Maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months.
