How Secret RF Works

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin tissue, including deeper layers such as the dermis and hypodermis. It is in these layers where treatment is most beneficial and effective for skin rejuvenation. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy into the epidermis (top layer of skin), Secret RF delivers RF energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate youthful and elastic skin tissue. This unique penetration of energy achieves optimal results with little to no downtime for all skin types.

This procedure can be performed in a quick, 20-minute session with no issues returning to normal activities immediately after treatment. During the cosmetic procedure, you may feel a slight heating sensation and some pressure on the treatment area. For most patients, the treatment is tolerable, but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Prior to the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the targeted area to ease any discomfort during the treatment.

Secret RF For Fine Lines and Wrinkles

SecretRF Microneedling is an all in one two-factor of collagen and elastin production through two different responses it elicits in the skin. The Radio Frequency (RF) is a heat component that tightens and stimulates collagen through a heat-wound response while microneedling is the penetration of needles reaching down into the dermis that creates a micro-injury, thus creating even more collagen and elastin. Because of these combined controlled injuries of the heat and needles, this triggers a double response and double production of collagen to the skin to heal and repair the skin more quickly.

Downtime is minimal- with Secret RF Microneedling, you will experience redness and tightness for the first 24-48 hours being able to wear makeup 24 hours later to neutralize any of the redness that may still be visible, and we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments of either SecretRF Microneedling for best results.

After Secret RF Treatment

After the procedure, an ointment will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing any makeup or applying any face products for 24 hours post treatment. Patients should avoid sun exposure while the skin is healing. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from the treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. Patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimum results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment, however, results are most optimal 3 months after the final treatment. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months. Due to the convenience and safety associated with Secret RF treatment, men and women are seeking out this procedure to address lingering facial concerns. True skin rejuvenation has become an obtainable goal with the right care and guidance from medical professionals.


What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes small needles and radiofrequency waves to help restore a patient’s skin. People get radiofrequency microneedling for many reasons, such as treating acne, reducing fine lines, and treating hyperhidrosis. 

Below is a list of other reasons why people get radiofrequency microneedling:

  • Hyperpigmentation.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Acne scars. 
  • Cellulite.

If you have one or more of these issues, you can schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon, cosmetic surgeon, or a licensed esthetician. They will assess the current condition of your skin to determine how many sessions you may need before you start seeing results. If you have any open wounds, a skin infection or active acne, you will not be eligible for radiofrequency microneedling. 

Is Radiofrequency Microneedling Painful?

Although it may seem like microneedling would be painful, you will be pleased to know that this is not the case. A highly-trained, licensed esthetician will first apply topical numbing creams to the target areas before the procedure begins. This is done to ensure patients feel next to nothing during the procedure. However, it is important to know that you may feel some slight discomfort, such as a warm, prickling sensation. 

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

On average, most patients will need around three to six sessions of radiofrequency microneedling to see ideal results. Bear in mind, however, that the amount of sessions you need will depend on the type of conditions you are hoping to treat. For example, some patients might need four to six sessions over the course of six weeks to treat fine lines. 

How Long Will the Result of Radiofrequency Microneedling Last?

With the appropriate amount of sessions, patients can enjoy results that can last up to a year. In some cases, your results can last as long as two years, but this will depend on the condition treated, the type of skin you have, and your age. Taking care of yourself is the key to ensure the results last as long as possible. This means eating a well-balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and protecting your skin by using sunscreen when out in public.
