How Does It Work?

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in the surface of the skin, Secret RF delivers energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types.

The Secret RF Microneedling Procedure

Secret RF is an easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 20-minute treatment session. During the treatment, you will feel some heat and pressure on the treatment area. The treatment is tolerable for most patients, 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 treatment area for increased comfort during the treatment.

Is Secret RF Microneedling Painful?

Microneedling works by creating tiny puncture wounds in the skin. With the inclusion of radiofrequency, the treatment takes on a new sensation of warmth or tingling. To promote your optimal comfort, we will treat your skin with a topical numbing medication. After about half an hour, the medication should effectively reduce the sensations you feel. Do not expect complete numbing. You may still feel a scraping or prickly sensation during your treatment. Some areas may feel hot, or you may feel the buildup of heat within your skin. This may be uncomfortable but it should not hurt.

Can Secret RF Microneedling Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Procedures?

Studies have indicated that RF microneedling can safely be combined with other cosmetic procedures. The question that we will answer is which procedures can be done and when. For example, you can have RF microneedling and Botox but your appointments will need to be two weeks apart. When you visit us for skin rejuvenation treatment, you can expect to receive a customized treatment plan to be developed to achieve optimal results based on your needs, skin type, and other factors.

Should I Avoid Direct Sunlight After My Secret RF Microneedling?

Yes. Your skin may be slightly more sensitive to sunlight, heat, and other environmental factors for a short time after your treatment sessions. For one to two weeks after each session, it is recommended that you wear sunscreen every day and also wear a hat or other protective clothing to prevent direct exposure to ultraviolet rays. Practicing sun protection is an excellent habit to implement after microneedling because it can slow the degradation of the new collagen and elastin that are produced.

Are There Any Risks Involved With The Procedure?

Radiofrequency microneedling treatments have been thoroughly tested to receive FDA clearance. The process is associated primarily with very mild side effects like temporary redness and swelling. There is a risk of infection because the skin is broken by tiny needles. However, the level of risk is comparable to having blood drawn. Your provider may give you specific aftercare instructions to follow to prevent unnecessary inflammation and exaggerated side effects. Adhering to your care instructions can help you avoid unforeseen problems and also maximize your treatment outcome.

Can Anyone Receive Secret RF Microneedling?

The Secret RF microneedling treatment is suitable for many people but may not be right for everyone. Your provider will conduct a thorough consultation and assessment of your skin to ensure that you can undergo this treatment without much risk. Because the radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, it may not be suitable for people with very dark skin tones. There are also limitations to the results that RF microneedling can achieve. For severe tissue laxity, surgery may be a more appropriate approach.

Patient Testimonial

Very good experience, the staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. I recommend this place to everyone. Also, Dr. Rhee and Olga go above and beyond to help you feel and look your best.

How Many Secret RF treatments Will I Need?

Patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment but optimal results appear 3 months after the last treatment.

How Long Secret RF Microneedling Takes

Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 to 18 months.

What Can I Expect After My Procedure?

After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to your skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make-up for several hours. Any minor redness, or swelling from the treatments will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
