Dermal Remodeling from the Inside Out
Demand for non-surgical aesthetic procedures with little to no downtime is on the rise. More than 70% of patients are bothered by signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles as well as skin texture and discoloration.1
Secret RF is a novel fractional radio frequency (RF) microneedling system for tissue coagulation and hemostasis designed to stimulate and remodel 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. By adjusting the micro-needles, Secret RF can deliver energy at various depths, so that treatments can be tailored to address each patient’s individual concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, photoaging and striae at the depth required.
Secret RF Technology
Secret RF’s unique technology and customized delivery of energy enables providers to tailor treatments for a variety of skin concerns on all skin types.
Secret RF induces dermal remodeling by applying precisely controlled RF energy directly into various depths of skin – from 0.5-3.5 mm – with minimally invasive micro-needles to spare the epidermis and reduce patient downtime.
Adjustable Needle Depth
Secret RF micro-needling features adjustable needle penetration ranging from 0.5-3.5 mm offering customized dermal remodeling based on the area and the depth of the condition being treated.
Selectable Needle Type
The Secret RF micro-needling device provides a unique combination of non-insulated or semi-insulated needles that let you treat a wide range of applications for all skin types, including challenging skin.
Secret RF Handpieces
Secret RF features dual handpieces and two sizes of treatment tips – 25 and 64 pin – for fast treatments on the face and body. This allows you to treat patients quickly and efficiently in under 20 minutes.
Secret RF’s 64-pin handpiece covers the largest treatment area on the market for faster, more efficient treatments. Ideal for treatments on the face, neck, chest, and body, the 64-pin handpiece features semi-insulated needles for precise placement of energy.
Secret RF’s 25-pin handpiece is ideal for treatments on the face or smaller, more delicate areas and can be used with non-insulated and semi-insulated needle tips for full treatment customization.
What is Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling is an innovative new treatment that improves signs of aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Treatments are suitable for patients seeking skin revitalization and are customized to address individual skin concerns and needs. Secret RF microneedling is suitable for all skin types.
How does it work?
RF microneedling uses micro needles to deliver fractionated RadioFrequency energy into varying levels of the skin, including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in the surface of the skin, Secret RF delivers energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types.
How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?
A consultation is required for this treatment. Usually treatment time lasts 1.5 hours, which includes numbing with a topical numbing agent for up to an hour. The number of treatments needed depends on what skin condition you are wishing to treat, however patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment but optimal results appear 3 months after the last treatment.
Is Radio Frequency Microneedling Painful?
Prior to the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area for increased comfort. During the treatment, you will feel some heat and pressure on the treatment area. The treatment is tolerable for most patients, but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level.
What can I expect before treatment?
A complimentary consultation with a trained professional.
What can I expect after treatment?
Any notable redness or swelling from the treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. There are often minor skin changes (scattered redness, “bumpy” skin, mild swelling) that slowly fade over 2-3 weeks. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities within a day or so.
