What is SecretRF® microneedling?
SecretRF® microneedling is a minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. SecretRF® microneedling can be performed on all skin types and is a safe and effective alternative to more invasive procedures like laser resurfacing or chemical peels.
How does SecretRF® microneedling work?
SecretRF® microneedling works by delivering RF energy into the deep layers of the skin via a series of tiny needles. This stimulates collagen production, which in turn leads to smoother, younger-looking skin. SecretRF® microneedling can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. It is a relatively fast procedure that is performed in-office with minimal downtime.
What can I expect during my SecretRF® microneedling procedure?
Before your SecretRF® microneedling procedure, your skin is cleansed, and a numbing cream is applied to help minimize any discomfort. Your plastic surgeon will then use a device with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. You may feel a brief prickling sensation as the needles enter the skin. Once the needles are in place, the RF energy is delivered to the deep layers of the skin. The procedure typically takes less than an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
