RF + Micro-needling
Multi-Award-Winning Skin Treatment
Secret RFMN is a fantastic skin rejuvenation treatment that combines Microneedling and Radio Frequency energy (RFMN) to improve skin tone and texture, with minimal downtime.
During a treatment, microneedles penetrate the dermis and deliver fractional radiofrequency energy into the lower layers of subdermal tissue (Face and Body). Secret allows controlled depths to optimize the treatment.
The Secret triggers a natural wound-healing response, which stimulates new collagen production and accelerates cell regeneration.
Following the Secret treatment, an advanced stem-cell technology serum (Exosomes) is applied which delivers potent growth factors, and collagen-building deep into the dermis. Exosomes also improve the recovery time.
The results are from the combination of modalities and improves fine lines, mild wrinkles, stretch marks (striae), acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, and body.
- Procedure time: 30-60 minutes
- Downtime: up to 24 hours. Many patients can go out that same evening
- Most dramatic results require 2-3 treatments, each one a month apart
- RF Microneedling reduces wrinkles by stimulating new collagen and elastin production and formation of new scaffolding which supports your skin
- Results are enhanced by consistent use of medical-grade skin care products
This is a very safe cosmetic procedure with few side effects and little downtime. Side effects can include:
- Redness lasting 1-2 days
- Minor swelling lasting up to 3 days
- Minor bruising (rare)
- Patterning of treated skin (temporary)
- Infection (rare)
Your skin will be red, warm and tingling immediately after the treatment and subside within a few hours. Some redness and minor swelling can last up to 24-48 hours.
Most patients will return to work the next day without any obvious effects. Occasionally a fine crust or scab may develop that looks like dots from the treatment. This is normal so do not pick or scrub this off and follow all post-treatment recommendations.
Difference between Secret RFMN and Morpheus8
What is the difference?
Secret RFMN microneedling tips are gold-plated stainless steel and highly adjustable, making the treatment suitable for a wide range of skin types and needs. The needles can be adjusted between 0.5-3.5 mm depths to address different conditions or skin types.
The device uses a combination of non-insulated or semi-insulated needles, which can be selected according to the patient need. The device also includes two sizes of treatment tips – a 25 pin tip or 64 pin tip. The 64-pin handpiece covers the largest surface area of any RF microneedling device available on the market. The 25-pin tip is useful for smaller treatment areas and precise targeting of areas of the face.
Secret RFMN vs Morpheus8
In comparison, Morpheus8 is intended to treat the skin more deeply using microneedles which reach 8 mm below the skin’s surface. However, most people do not need microneedling to go that deep (unless they have VERY deep scarring) and the deeper the needles go, the more likely you are to hit the fat pads, causing a slight loss of volume. Patients say its very intense with pain management.
Who are the right candidates for Secret RFMN vs. Morpheus8?
Secret RFMN and Morpheus8 are both suitable for a wide range of patients, as radiofrequency microneedling is known to be safe and effective for many skin types, tones and concerns. However, there are some factors to consider when choosing between the two. Patients who wish to treat a larger area of the body are better suited for the Secret RF.
One of the best things about Secret RFMN is that it’s safe for any skin type and color, unlike other laser skin treatments which can cause complications on darker skin tones. This means a wide variety of people and skin types are good candidates for facial rejuvenation with Secret RF, if they have generally healthy skin.
Secret RFMN may also be a better option for those with more sensitive skin types, as the treatment is customizable and adjustable. In either case, you should be generally healthy overall and disclose any health concerns or medications with your practitioner before undergoing RF microneedling treatment.
