RF Microneedling – For skin tightening and contouring

Has your skin lost the tone, texture, or tightness it once had? Do you have loose skin somewhere on your face or body you just can’t shift? Perhaps you have enlarged pores that have always bothered you? Maybe you are just looking for an anti-ageing treatment that stimulates your own collagen to tone and tighten.

Fortunately, technology in the area of skin rejuvenation is progressing at a rapid pace. The latest advancement, Non insulated microneedling radiofrequency by Secret, delivers radio-frequency energy to each layer of the skin.

Unlike other technologies, treating each layer of the skin provides not only a deep tightening but a surface rejuvenation with unparalleled results.

What is Secret radiofrequency skin needling?

Secret NIMRF combines fractionated radio-frequency and micro-needling into one of the most advanced skin tightening and resurfacing devices. Selectively delivering radio-frequency energy via 24 insulated micro-needles, the device is able to achieve a deep remodeling of the skin.

NIMRF is used to tighten skin and contour the face. It works by heating the deeper layers of the skin stimulating collagen formation which tightens the skin. It is a relatively non-invasive treatment delivering heat to target tissues while the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) remains relatively intact. It stimulates collagen resulting in improvement in textural irregularities such as fine lines and mild to moderate scarring. This is the treatment of choice for mild to moderate skin laxity and preventing skin laxity or ‘sagging’.

This treatment is also recommended as an ongoing preventative treatment for skin wrinkling and sagging during the early stages of aging. This is the treatment of choice for early acne scarring (<3 months). Active acne can also be treated with impressive results. A course of 3-4 or more treatments is recommended for best results.

How does the radio-frequency skin needling work?

The machine delivers radio-frequency energy to the skin’s deeper layers via 24 insulated micro-needles. Using multiple depth settings, the Secret treats each layer of the skin, allowing a tightening of the deeper layers, while resurfacing upper skin layers.

This translates to amazing skin rejuvenation and tightening on any area of the face or body.

Which areas can be treated with Secret radio-frequency skin-needling?

The Secret can be used to treat skin on almost any part of the body. Common areas include:

  • Face, where it is the gold standard in lifting jowls, correcting fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothing acne scarring.
  • Neck, to tighten sagging, tired neck skin.
  • Decolletage.
  • Abdomen, this is especially the case after pregnancy and weight loss.
  • Upper arms.
  • Above knees.
Which skin concerns are best addressed by Secret radio-frequency skin-needling?

This is the an excellent technology for those wanting to minimise the appearance of:

  • Sagging facial or neck skin.
  • Loose body skin post pregnancy, weight loss, or general ageing.
  • Deep lines and creases.
  • Sun damage and poor skin texture.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Stretch marks.
  • Acne or acne scars.
How is the procedure performed?

Upon arrival to your Secret radio-frequency skin-needling treatment you will have a topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area.

Your doctor will prepare the treatment area and answer any questions you have prior to the treatment commencing.

Once the skin is prepared, your doctor will commence the micro-needling process with the radiofrequency handpiece. The treatment takes about 15-30 minutes depending on the area treated.

Post-treatment our team will treat you to cooling skin products to reduce redness.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients find the procedure easy to tolerate. Topical numbing cream applied pre-treatment significantly decreases any associated discomfort of the procedure.

When can I wear makeup after the procedure?

For regular makeup, we recommend waiting 2 days post-procedure.

When will I see results?

Full results with RF micro-needling are usually seen 3-6 months post-treatment. Skin tightening will continue for up to 12 months.

Like most collagen stimulating treatments, it takes 3 months for the collagen-stimulating process to occur.

How many treatments are needed to see results?

You will see impressive results in as little as one treatment. For best results, we recommend a treatment course of 3 sessions spaced 1 month apart.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Side effects include redness, swelling and occasional bruising.

You may notice tiny points at the needle entry sites which crust and flake off in 1-2 days.

Mild tenderness and soreness may be expected for 1-3 days post-treatment.

Our expert team will discuss any possible side effects you may experience during your consultation.
