Dermal remodeling – what does it mean? It is a process by which the skin can be restored and rejuvenated, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Secret RF system promotes rapid cell regeneration without damaging underlying layers of skin. Skin conditions that were once difficult to treat can be improved in a fast treatment with no downtime.
The Secret RF system was developed by Cutera, a leader in state-of-the-art, non-invasive cosmetic treatment systems. It uses radiofrequency energy in delivered into the deeper skin layers with a customized microneedling system.
The Secret RF system offers some significant benefits to patients who live with various unsightly skin conditions. The benefits include:
Results of treatment appear quickly after the treatment is completed. The Secret RF treatment involves limited downtime, with redness and swelling for a up to three days after treatment. Your usual activities can be resumed the same day or the following day. Any remaining visible effects (a possible fine brown crusting on the skin surface) can easily be covered with makeup.
The beauty of the Secret RF system is that it “remodels” your skin, tightening existing collagen fibers while triggering the treated area to produce more of this vital skin component. Nothing is more beautiful than firm, healthy, plump skin created by nature.
This system works with the regenerative processes of the body, and over time, your skin will appear healthier, firmer, and more even in tone. As your skin grows more natural collagen, it becomes thicker and the supple quality of youthful skin is restored.
The first step in your treatment will be to numb the targeted area of your skin. A topical anesthetic cream is applied, and you will wait for it to take effect. Oral pain relief medication may also be used to make the treatment more comfortable. Once the area is numbed, the tip of the special treatment wand is moved over the area and the tiny needles penetrate the skin. The system has an adjustment feature that allows for customizing the depth of needle penetration. After waiting for the topical anesthetic to take effect, the treatment itself requires about 40 minutes to one hour to complete.
After your Secret RF treatment, you will have carefully outlined aftercare instructions. You will need to avoid washing the treated area until any redness or irritation is gone. Once this side effect has disappeared, you are free to clean your skin with cool water and dry carefully by patting the skin lightly. You should avoid the use of hot water during the healing phase, always apply sunscreen, and avoid sun exposure after treatment.
While there are a wide range of treatments available to rejuvenate the skin, many of our patients seek something more. Radiofrequency technology has been available to treat the skin for some time, but the beauty of the Secret RF system is that the energy is delivered through the microneedling process, accessing the deeper layers where skin health begins.
We are committed to identifying the most effective developments in cosmetic technology and offer this groundbreaking treatment to our patients at our luxurious, discreet, comfortable med spa in Sarasota Springs, where every treatment is performed under the guidance of our accomplished double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ridha.
