If achieving younger-looking skin topped your list of 2019 New Year’s resolutions, we have exciting news to share with you. At M Spa Face and Body, we are now offering the highest-tech option in minimally invasive skin rejuvenation – the revolutionary Secret RF microneedling device.

Read on to learn more about the advantages of this technique and what makes it so effective at smoothing wrinkles and reducing facial flaws.

How Microneedling Works

The concept of medical microneedling – also called collagen induction therapy – is not new; in fact, the first recorded use of microneedling dates all the way back to 1905! By using fine needles to create minuscule injuries, the microneedling technique stimulates your body’s natural healing process, leading to the production of collagen – a protein that is essential to maintaining healthy, resilient skin.

The result of microneedling is the promotion of new cell growth, which will cause your skin to become plumper, firmer, smoother and younger-looking. In short, the technique improves both the quality and the texture of skin.

RF Microneedling: What’s All the Buzz About?

As with many other aspects of our lives, new technological advances have revolutionized the original microneedling method, leading to vast improvements in both the results and the process itself. We now know combining microneedling with radio frequency (RF) leads to even more outstanding results. That’s because the heat from the RF penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, called the dermis, which causes the skin to contract.

RF microneedling is suitable for most skin tones and types and can help treat a wide variety of skin complaints. RF microneedling reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles and is also an excellent choice for patients who are concerned with sun-damaged skin or uneven skin tone and texture.

Because of its tightening effect, RF microneedling is also an ideal treatment for patients who are dissatisfied with skin laxity, especially in their necks and the lower portion of their faces. People with facial scarring, especially acne or chicken pox scars, can benefit from this treatment as well.

What Makes Secret RF Microneedling Different?

Secret RF, one of the newest breakthroughs from cosmetic and laser equipment manufacturer Cutera, is a revolutionary approach to RF microneedling. By delivering fractionated RF energy directly into the dermis, where it can do the most good, this device results in even more significant improvements in collagen production, and provides more consistently satisfying patient outcomes. This unique method of delivering RF energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types.

What to Expect From Your Secret RF Procedure

Secret RF is an easy, safe, and effective in-office procedure that offers significantly less discomfort and downtime than older methods. During your Secret RF session, you can expect to feel some heat and pressure on the treatment area, but we will make every effort to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible by providing pain-reduction options.

Each treatment session usually takes less than an hour, and the most common side effect is redness – similar to a sunburn for the first day with some swelling.  By the second day, the sunburn appearance starts to diminish as well as the swelling.  Patients can typically return to work or other regularly scheduled activities the following day.

Depending on the severity of the skin issues you are hoping to address and how well you respond to Secret RF microneedling, it’s likely you’ll see your best results with two or more treatment sessions, spaced approximately four weeks apart. We can determine the best course of action for you by evaluating your skin in a face-to-face consultation.
