Secret™ RF FAQ

WHAT IS SECRET RF?

Secret RF is a radio frequency (RF) fractional microneedling system that improves signs of aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Treatments are suitable for patients seeking skin revitalization and are customized to address individual skin concerns and needs. Secret RF Microneedling is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types.

HOW does secret rf WORK?

 

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver radio frequency energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in upper layer of the skin, Secret RF de- livers RF 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.

What skin conditions can I treat?

The Secret RF treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars, acnes scars, skin quality and striae. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and patients seeking skin revitalization.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SECRET RF?

Fine lines and creases are caused by a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin over time. Sun damage, dietary factors, and poor skin care also contribute to growing wrinkles and skin texture issues. Secret RF is a great way to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles, deep acne scars, and discoloration without resorting to facelift surgery or other invasive procedures. Renew Wellness Center can erase years of natural aging and skin damage, helping patients maintain a youthful appearance long-term.
