Does your skin feel like the weather has battered it? Scars, wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin are signs of skin damage due to exposure to the environment. These can cause you to look older much earlier in life.
While there is no magical Fountain of Youth you can drink from to remain eternally youthful, modern science provides tools to reverse this damage. Whether you want to restore your skin to its glowing state or want to give it a bit of rejuvenation, there are plenty of therapies available at your disposal.
It is no secret that great skin requires care, but there are secrets to caring for it. You want a treatment that goes beyond the superficial layers of your skin and nourishes it deeply. This is exactly what Secret RF Microneedling does for you.
Available in our Melbourne clinic only
Microneedling itself is a well known aesthetic procedure that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars and stretch marks.
The way it works is by using tiny needles to create very fine punctures in the topmost layers of the skin (the epidermis and dermis). These punctures, called micro thermal zones (MTZ) stimulate the formation of collagen, helping your skin rebuild itself from the inside.
Secret RF Microneedling combines microneedling with radio frequency.
The device will deliver controlled amounts of heat to pre-selected areas of your skin at different depths which further stimulates the skin to stimulate collagen production.
Where most micro-needling procedures stimulate collagen with a single mechanism of creating punctures, Secret RF Microneedling goes a step beyond. It delivers a localized frequency that heats the deeper layers of your skin and hastens the healing process.
Through this, it can promote rapid regeneration of cells without causing any additional damage. Thus, Secret RF Microneedling ensures that the outer layers of your skin are left intact and the healing process is short.
Within a period of two to three sessions spaced about 4-6 weeks apart, you can see positive changes in your appearance. There is nil to minimal social downtime after the treatment and you can resume regular activities almost instantly. It is a safe, effective treatment that is quickly administered.
Secret RF Microneedling treats a wide range of aesthetic problems with the skin and is appropriate for all skin types. Both men and women are suitable for the treatment, regardless of their skin texture, color and thickness.
It is applicable in the following conditions and many more:
We recommend you book in for a complimentary consultation so the clinician can evaluate your concerns and skin type in order to determine the most appropriate treatment for your skin condition. From here a treatment and skin care plan will be determined and tailored for your skin type and conditions.
A topical anaesthetic to numb the skin will be applied for an hour.
The treatment then takes approximately 20 – 30 minutes to perform depending on the size of the area.
As mentioned earlier, there is no social downtime with Secret RF Microneedling. You can resume your regular activities almost instantly. However, you will have to carefully follow some aftercare instructions and avoid washing your face and applying makeup for approximately 24 hours.
The provider will apply either a skin booster, a soothing mask or both on your face to help you heal. Your skin might swell slightly and appear reddish for a while, but this should soon clear.
Although you will not see immediate results, you will experience radiant skin soon. You will see results within 3 to 5 sessions (depending on the clinicians assessment of your underlying condition or clinical indications), which will optimize from three months post treatment.
Although the results of Secret RF Microneedling are long-lasting, it changes based on individual skin types. Ideally, to maintain the results, you will be advised the frequency of when to opt for a booster treatment. This is not because the treatment is ineffective, but because it cannot stop your natural process of ageing – it merely slows it down.
Ideal candidates can be men or women who are generally healthy but desire to improve the appearance of their skin. It can be used to treat any desired areas on the face and body.
Generally, the number of sessions, their duration and spacing are decided based on consultations with the clinician. However, many people see improvements within the first 3 to 5 treatments, improving the most after the third treatment. These are spaced four to six weeks apart.
Booster or top-up treatments can be every 3 – 6 months after the clinical endpoint desired is achieved.
Although the treatment creates tiny holes in your skin, all you will experience is heat and pressure. Most people tolerate the treatment. However, we will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to prevent any discomfort. After the treatment, we will also apply a soothing mask on your face to help with the redness, swelling and mild discomfort.
During the recovery process, you might experience mild stinging sensations, redness and swelling. You will be asked to avoid washing your face and applying makeup and other cosmetics for the next 24 hours, following which you can resume your regular non active skin care activities.
The cost and frequency of your sessions will be determined based on the area to target, the condition and the intensity of the treatment required.
