“…my skin looks so noticeably different, it’s kind of amazing. A really big difference.”

How does RF Microneedling work?

The Secret RF is a microneedling machine that uses small needles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers (dermis). This controlled injury stimulates collagen production and cell regeneration. Because collagen is protein in the skin that provides support the result is more supple skin.

What conditions is the treatment good for?

Microneedling RF, also known as microneedling radiofrequency, can be used all over the body producing a variety of benefits and addressing a number of issues including:

  1. stretch marks
  2. skin tightening
  3. facial skin tightening
  4. acne scar treatment
  5. skin tightening of the stomach (abdomen)
  6. traumatic scars
  7. mommy makeover
  8. crepey skin
1 month after 3rd Acne scar treatment

How many Microneedling treatments do I need?

The number of treatments will depend on the problem being treated and your individual goals. Some patients have been pleased after only one treatment, however, expect to do 3-4 treatments spaces 1 month. There is some immediate improvement after treatment but optimal results appear 3 months after the last treatment.

How long does each treatment take?

After about a 40 minute period of sitting with numbing cream on the skin, the radiofrequency microneedling treatment itself is typically a quick 20 minutes. This, of course, depends on the size of the area being treated.

What can I expect right after treatment?

Your face will be cleaned with a saline wash. Avoid make up for a few hours. Redness and prick marks should resolve in 12-24 hours. You can return to normal activities immediately.

Early improvement only 3 weeks after 1 treatment

How long do the results last?

This varying from individual. The results of scar treatment should be long-term. We continue to age around any treatments we do. Maintenance treatments every 12-18 months are recommended. Other ways to slow the effects of aging wear sunscreen daily, avoid sunbathing, don’t smoke, moisturize, and consume a healthy diet.

Microneedling RF Side Effects

Microneedling RF is a relatively safe procedure with minimal downtime. There are risks, however, with any procedure. These include discomfort, redness, infection, and temporary prick marks.

RF micro needling reviews:

“My experience here at Aglow was great! Dr.Strachan has saved me from needing to get a tummy tuck due to loose skin and stretch marks around my belly button and stomach area! After two treatments, the stretch marks began to fade and the loose skin is almost gone!
