Learn How Secret RF Can Take Years Off Your Face

Are you looking for a way to rejuvenate your skin without injectables or invasive procedures? 

Secret™ RF is a treatment that combines the use of small needles and radio frequency (RF) to boost collagen production in the skin. 

Here’s how it works: The Secret RF device creates micro-wounds and heats the tissues it comes into contact with. The body rushes collagen and growth factors to the treated area. Due to the increase in collagen and elastin production, the skin becomes more elastic and softer to the touch. 

Unlike lasers, which have the potential to damage the upper layer of skin, these needles carry the radio frequency underneath the skin, where it’s needed, without leaving the surface of the skin inflamed.

Our expert at Soulage Wellness and Aesthetic Center, Dr. Pompeyo Chavez, uses Secret RF to rejuvenate the skin of his patients at his office in Bastrop, Texas. Learn all about the treatment below.

What skin imperfections Secret RF treats 

With minimal side effects, Secret RF can be successfully used for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars, and stretch marks. 

Depending on your skin type and cosmetic goals, Dr. Chavez can customize the device to deliver various levels of radio frequency and puncture the skin at various depths. You can get Secret RF treatment on your face, but you can also get it on the rest of your body to address crepey skin.

What you can expect during a session of Secret RF

Microneedling hurts, and adding heat can heighten the pain. However, with the use of topical numbing creams and gels, the pain is manageable. To reduce your discomfort, Dr. Chavez may give you topical Lidocaine 20 minutes before your treatment.

You may need up to three treatments to achieve optimal results. 

Secret RF recovery 

Most people can undergo a session of Secret RF during their lunch break without changing their daily routine. Some may need an extra day until the redness and irritation diminish. On average, most people can expect a complete recovery within 72 hours. 

Dr. Chavez may recommend you to avoid irritants, sun exposure, and creams containing retinol during recovery. 

You may notice results a few weeks after the treatment. However, because collagen is still upregulated up to three months after the final treatment, it typically takes about three months to see the final results. 

Why opt for Secret RF?

Microneedling has been used for years to treat skin imperfections. However, when heat is used alongside the needles, collagen production is increased, which leads to superior results.
