What is microneedle radiofrequency Secret 2.0?
Secret RF® 2.0 is a device equipped with a 24 microneedle head, which after insertion on a selected depth ranging from 0.5 to 3.5 mm emits radio waves, evenly heated along their entire length, needles allows to deliver the energy to all three layers of the skin. The device is FDA-certified. The treatment stimulates neo-collagenesis in the skin. This leads to an increased synthesis of new collagen fibres by fibroblasts. This process is responsible for improving skin elasticity and firmness as well as its overall appearance and quality. Effects of Scarlet RF treatment can be divided into those that are visible immediately and those that reveal themselves over time. There is a strong shrinkage of collagen fibers immediately after the treatment, which significantly tightens the skin. The final effect, however, shows after a few weeks, or even after up to 3 months after surgery. That is the time when the stimulation of new collagen formation happens, the twisting and thickening of the fibers as well as building new bonds in between them. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and more elastic.
Thanks to the collagen rebuilding, small wrinkles on the face, neck and cleavage become shallower. It is also an excellent method for removing wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, as well as lifting drooping skin and improving its elasticity. In addition, the treatment helps remove atrophic scars and eliminate stretch marks effectively and permanently.
Secret RF® 2.0 is the perfect treatment for people who would like to rejuvenate their skin in a minimally invasive way, improve its tension and structure. Smooth fine wrinkles, as well as decrease the visibility of scars and stretch marks.
What does the treatment look like?
The treatment takes about 30-45 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia with an anesthetic cream. Then the head is applied and a given fragment of the skin is worked on. The treatment is not painful. The skin is reddened immediately after the procedure, but this state passes after a few hours. In rare cases, erythema may persist a little longer, even up to 3 days. After the treatment you should use soothing dermocosmetics and SPF filters, as well as avoid sauna and excessive skin rubbing. Good results can be achieved after just one treatment, however, this depends on the initial condition of the skin. It is recommended to perform 3-5 procedures every 3-4 weeks.
