What is Secret RF?

Secret RF lets patients enjoy next-level customized microneedling with the addition of targeted energy delivery to stimulate collagen and elastin growth, renewing the skin from the inside out.

Thanks to its minimally invasive approach and excellent results, microneedling has become a go-to treatment for skin rejuvenation. By creating micro-injuries in the skin, microneedling stimulates the body’s natural healing response, boosting new skin cell renewal, as well as collagen and elastin growth.

Secret RF takes microneedling to the next level as it combines the microneedling treatment with fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy to boost the rejuvenation process. Secret RF is a breakthrough advancement in microneedling technology that dramatically enhances microneedling results with no additional downtime. It uses 25 or 64 perfectly spaced, gold tip needles that precisely deliver energy at varying depths below the skin. The direct thermal heating of the dermis results in new collagen production and subsequent dermal thickening, allowing for optimal results without damaging the skin’s outer layers. It is a great treatment option for addressing aging skin, photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars, acne scars, skin quality, and stretch marks.

 

What are the Benefits of secret rf?

  • Improves skin firmness, tightness, and tone
  • A quick treatment that can be performed in as little as 15 minutes
  • Provides precise energy delivery to where it’s needed the most while minimizing damage to the skin’s surface
  • Safe for all body areas
  • Safe on all skin types (very low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
  • Minimal downtime
  • A well-tolerated non-surgical procedure
  • Stimulates natural collagen which improves results in the months following the procedure

What Can I Expect During my secret rf Treatment?

Secret RF is an easy and safe procedure that Dr. Armstrong can perform in as little as 15 minutes, depending on your skin condition and the size of the treatment area. Topical anesthetics, like lidocaine, will be applied at least 30 minutes before the procedure to help ensure patient comfort. Dr. Armstrong will use a pen-like device with adjustable needles to create micro-injuries in a uniform pattern in the skin while delivering targeted fractional RF energy beneath it. You will feel a mild heating sensation and a slight pressure in the treatment area.

What Can I Expect After my secret rf Treatment?

Even though Secret RF is a more advanced treatment, it has less downtime compared to microneedling because the heat seals any bleeding from the micro-injuries. You will feel warm and look like you have a mild sunburn. This can last for a few minutes to a few hours. Any minor redness or swelling will subside within 12-24 hours. You may resume your normal activities after your treatment. You must refrain from wearing make-up for several hours and applying acid or retinol products for a few days. Always wear sun protection.

Am I a Good Candidate for secret rf?

If you’re looking for a minimally invasive approach to correct fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, uneven skin tone, large pores, stretch marks, and other common skin concerns, Secret RF may be right for you. Ideal candidates for Secret RF are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you’re unsure whether Secret RF is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Armstrong. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
