Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished there was a simple way to tighten your skin, smooth fine lines, and reduce the appearance of discoloration and scarring? If so, you’re in good company. Many people around the world have this experience and have turned to micro-needling to improve those areas and get the results they want.
Micro-needling secretRF is a skin treatment system that uses fractional radio frequency to stimulate collagen production and address the common signs of aging. This micro-needle technology uses adjustable needles to deliver radio frequency energy beneath the skin at varying strengths and depths.
Results may vary from person to person.
During a micro-needling treatment, tiny punctures are created on the surface of a patient’s skin. These microscopic abrasions trigger your body’s natural healing mechanisms including the production of collagen which leaves your skin looking plump and fresh. In a secretRF micro-needling treatment, those natural healing mechanisms are paired with precisely controlled amounts of radio frequency energy.
The variability of this treatment allows your technician to treat your skin based upon your specific needs. In addition to adjustable needle depth, the micro-needling device provides both non-insulated or semi-insulated needles that treat a wide range of different skin types and conditions.
The intensity of this micro-needling treatment can vary greatly depending upon the degree of damage your skin has sustained over time and the type of results you’re looking for. Directly after your treatment, most patients leave our office with some redness in their face. You may feel like you have a sunburn and that your skin is tight and itchy. This is normal and is a good sign that your body is doing its job and healing is taking place.
This initial reaction generally lasts up to 48 hours and then begins to fade. While some results are visible very quickly, it can take up to eight weeks to see significant results.
