Aging is just a natural part of life, but most of us don’t exactly enjoy it. And sometimes, those little fine lines and wrinkles can detract from your overall appearance, lending you a sad or angry expression. Secret RF Microneedling can offer a good solution to those who want to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. And it works on scars, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections, too!
How Secret RF Microneedling works. While many of us shy away from the word “needles”, microneedles are so small that we barely feel them prick our skin. Tiny needle pricks stimulate the skin’s natural healing response via collagen production. This helps to transform wrinkled or scarred skin into a smoother, more vibrant complexion.
How long until I see results? Noticeable changes occur after each session, as your skin’s healing response is activated. You should see some changes after about two weeks, but improvements often continue for six months after treatment. However, you won’t receive optimal results until you finish a series of procedures. The number of treatments you need will depend upon the issues being treated. For fine lines and wrinkles, we often recommend a series of three treatments. For deeper scars and stretch marks, six to eight treatments are usually required.
What is the recovery like? Most people go right back to their usual activities after a Secret RF Microneedling treatment. You might experience some redness, which looks like a sunburn, for a few minutes to a few hours after the procedure. Keep makeup off your face for a few hours, to avoid irritation, and don’t apply acid products or retinols for a few days. Make sure to use your regular sun protection, and you’re okay to go right back to your normal life!
