Microneedling is a process called collagen induction therapy (CIT). CIT is the skin’s own ability to repair itself. By using SkinPen, we are able to create controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by making deliberate micro injuries to the skin. This then creates and triggers the release of growth factors for the production of new collagen and elastin, which is what we lose as we age. As the very first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen is trusted by leading dermatologists
What is RF? Secret RF is a new microneedling treatment that improves signs of aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars with little to no downtime. 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. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results on all skin types.
RF microneedling is a type of minimally invasive procedure that can effectively rejuvenate the skin appearance by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. The technique combines the element of radiofrequency energy with traditional microneedling procedure.
RF pulse is carried deep within the dermis through fractional technique that helps in reducing acne scars and enhances skin tightening.
Patients with mild to moderate acne scars should see a good noticeable improvement after 3 treatments, spaced about a month apart. Patients with more severe acne scars may need 3-5 treatments to get the most optimal outcomes. Overall though, the results with the Secret RF will be consistently better for all our acne scar patients.
Since stretch marks disrupt the natural production of collagen, microneedling and radiofrequency will not only help to restart that production, but the overproduction of elastin and collagen will help heal the damaged connective tissue in the dermis that creates the stretch mark.
Microneedling procedures and the Platelet Rich Plasma may be used in conjunction instead of merely injecting the PRP into the client’s skin. The PRP is topically applied to the skin immediately following a microneedling procedure. The micro-channels created by microneedling provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of skin for optimal wound healing. Microneedling with PRP application is an ideal treatment for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars or even increasing plumpness and overall r
