4 Cosmetic Skin Concerns Secret RF Microneedling Can Address

Whether you’re hoping to reverse the signs of aging or treat blemishes like acne scars, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling could be just what you need.

This innovative therapy stimulates your natural collagen and elastin production, helping to rebuild your skin from the inside out to give you firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin — all without harsh chemicals or incisions. 

At MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers in Irvine, California, our providers use SecretTM RF Microneedling by Cutera to treat many cosmetic skin concerns. This treatment uses targeted energy combined with tiny needles to restore your skin safely and effectively.

The Secret RF technology offers two sizes of treatment tips to allow us to customize your therapy and deliver precise, controlled amounts of energy into the right skin depth to trigger your natural healing response and boost collagen and elastin production.

Collagen and elastin work together to help maintain your skin and create new skin cells. Secret RF stimulates the production of these key proteins, which diminish dramatically as you age. With this advanced system, you can create tighter, firmer skin and repair noticeable skin defects.

Each session takes around 20 minutes to complete, and most patients benefit from 3-4 sessions. You’ll notice results immediately, but since Secret RF triggers your natural collagen and elastin production, it will take about three months to see your final results. 

Here’s a closer look at how Secret RF treats four of the most frustrating cosmetic skin concerns. 

1. Acne scars

Your acne may be decades in the past, but the scars from pimples and zits can persist for the rest of your life. If you’d like to minimize the appearance of acne scars, the combined radiofrequency energy and microneedling of Secret RF can help. 

When the tiny pinpricks are made in the areas of acne scars, this triggers your body’s natural healing process. The RF energy further boosts your healing and stimulates more collagen and elastin production at deeper levels, smoothing your skin. 

2. Stretch marks

Stretch marks interrupt the natural collagen production of your cells. They also damage the connective tissues in deeper layers of your skin, causing it to appear different from the rest of your skin. 

Secret RF treatments can restart collagen production under the stretch marks, which can help heal the damaged tissues and smooth your skin. The treatment penetrates well below the surface to provide better results than topical creams and ointments that can only reach the topmost layer. 

3. Sagging skin

Secret RF is a fantastic way to restore sagging skin. During the microneedling process, your provider creates a microscopic channel in your skin at a controlled depth. This, in turn, ramps up your skin’s production of collagen and elastin.

The RF energy then works to tighten the structures of your skin tissue while improving collagen and elastin production even further. Over time, your skin lifts and smooths and the new skin fibers are tighter and denser, visibly tightening sagging skin. 

4. Fine lines and wrinkles

Because Secret RF stimulates collagen and elastin production while preserving the tissues of your upper skin, it’s a great way to reduce the visible fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging. We can use Secret RF on all skin types, and little downtime is required.

Your skin may look pink or flushed immediately following your session, but this usually resolves in less than a day or so. Furthermore, you shouldn’t wash your face for 24 hours, and your skin may feel rough for 2-3 days.
