How Does Secret RF Help My Appearance?
It’s been well-known for many years that a leading cause of aging in the skin is our body’s decreased production of certain proteins, like collagen and elastin. And although there are many treatments designed to boost collagen production either temporarily or in the long run, Secret RF is unique because it combines two collagen-boosting treatments in a single device.
As a microneedling procedure, Secret RF stimulates the body’s natural healing response of producing collagen by selectively penetrating the skin to varying depths and delivering radiofrequency energy. The radiofrequency energy delivered via Secret RF’s microneedles is a unique, patented technology that produces a greater collagen-building effect than other microneedling procedures.
What Conditions Does Secret RF Treat?
Secret RF radiofrequency microneedling is a highly versatile treatment. Its varying options for needle penetration depth and tunable energy delivery allows for treatments to be customized for various concerns and skin types. Common concerns that can be resolved with Secret RF include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne or surgical scars
- Photoaging concerns
- Uneven skin texture
Secret RF comes with two different-sized handpieces for treating large and very small areas, respectively. This allows our aesthetic professionals to give precise results in as little time as possible. In addition to being safe for use on the face, Secret RF can be used anywhere on the body, addressing additional concerns like stretch marks, surgical scars, and sun damage.
Who is a Good Candidate for Secret RF?
One of the best things about Secret RF is that it’s safe for any skin type and color, unlike other laser skin treatments which can cause complications on darker skin tones. This means a wide variety of people and skin types are good candidates for facial rejuvenation with Secret RF, as long as they have generally healthy skin.
