Cutera's Secret RF microneedling technology can lighten pigmentation by stimulating your body to produce new collagen, creating a more consistent color. Secret RF combines the benefits of both microneedling and radio frequency (RF) treatments by delivering radio frequency treatment from the tips of microneedles.
Cutera’s Secret RF is an FDA cleared RF microneedling device that utilizes 25 or 64 gold tip needles to create controlled micro-injuries and precisely deliver radiofrequency. This device was designed to be totally customizable meaning: Your dermatologist determines the depth of needle penetration and the intensity of RF delivered based on your skin type, the treatment area, and the severity of scarring. Since it is so customizable, it is safe in all skin types.
At Jeunesse Spa and Skin Care, patients numb for at least 40 minutes with a strong anesthetic called BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) to ensure maximal comfort. The treatment itself takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the area to be treated. Afterwards, skin is rinsed with saline and a healing moisturizer is applied. Most patients report a warm, sunburn like feeling afterwards that dissipates within 4-5 hours. By the next day, minimal redness, swelling, minute scabs and gridlines can be seen. At this point, make up can adequately cover the healing process, which takes 1-2 weeks in most cases. A series of treatments is recommended bases on the degree of scarring.
If you suffered with acne and are left with scars, Secret RF is the breakthrough you have been waiting for. By combining the power of two modalities, microneedling and radiofrequency, this device delivers unprecedented results without compromising safety.
