Radiofrequency Microneedling Q & A

What is Secret radiofrequency microneedling?

Secret radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an advanced skin treatment that promotes your body’s natural healing response, the regeneration of cells, and the production of elastin and collagen. Both substances are naturally occurring skin-tightening proteins that significantly enhance your skin’s elasticity and texture.

Because this skin-tightening treatment is ultra-effective, it’s often called a non-surgical facelift. If you opt for microneedling at the Vitality Institute, you receive a complimentary spider vein removal treatment. Dr. Sarti also takes plenty of before and after pictures to track your progress and help you to visualize your likely results.

The Secret RF microneedling device is suitable for use on many body parts:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Hands
  • Legs and knees

What does Secret RF microneedling treat?

Dr. Sarti offers Secret RF microneedling to treat various skin concerns:

  • Scarring
  • Age spots
  • Skin texture
  • Stretch marks
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Oversized pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

How does Secret RF microneedling work?

Dr. Sarti applies a topical gel to your skin to allow the Secret RF microneedling device to glide over your skin easily and ensure your comfort.

Once your skin is numb, Dr. Sarti uses the device to deliver precise, controlled RF energy directly into various depths of your skin with a cluster of minimally invasive fine micro-needles. The tiny needles create micro-wounds without harming the surrounding skin, and the RF energy targets deep into the dermal layers, where the emitted heat stimulates tissue tightening.

Each session takes around one hour, including 30 minutes for the application and activation of the topical numbing cream. We also offer PRONOX, for anxiety and pain control.  You schedule your treatments four weeks apart, and multiple sessions might be necessary for the best results. For most skin concerns, two to four treatments are advisable.

Following your treatment, you might notice mild redness or swelling, but this should subside within a day or so. You can resume your daily activities immediately following your treatment.

Who is a good candidate for Secret RF microneedling?

All women and men of any skin tone or ethnicity are suitable candidates for Secret RF microneedling. Dr. Sarti helps you set reasonable goals for this treatment and learn what to expect during each session.

Some skin conditions and health complications make you unsuitable for RF microneedling. Dr. Sarti helps you decide the appropriate skin treatments for you by using a holistic approach to aesthetic medicine. Start with a consultation and call or click to schedule online.
