We here at Maine Laser Skin Care and Medispa are proud to be the first in the state of Maine to offer Secret RF Micro Needling. This innovative technology combines the power of radio frequency with the known tightening features of micro needling to significantly improve the appearance of aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars.
Secret RF is safe and effective and suitable for all skin types. This system uses multiple very small needles to deliver fractional radio frequency energy into multiple levels deep under the skin where it can be most effective for skin tightening.
Secret RF can be performed in a 20-minute session for each body area that it treats. The whole face and the neck are each considered separate areas, for example.
Everyone is pretreated with a topical numbing cream before the treatment begins. During the session, you will feel some heat and pressure, but most people find it to be easily tolerable.
After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to your skin to promote healing and collagen stimulation. Another great aspect of this system is that it can be combined with the power of platelet rich plasma (PRP) if you choose to turbocharge your treatment.
Also following the procedure, you are likely to experience minor redness and swelling for up to 24 hours after the treatment. It will look very similar to mild wind burn like the kind you get after skiing, but nothing as intense as traditional micro needling.
You may resume all normal activities after the session. However, we do not recommend applying any makeup until the very next day.
The best results are seen after at least three treatments that are done about one month apart. Still, most people treated notice gradual improvements starting even after the first treatment.
Finally, younger and tighter looking skin can be achieved with a safe, minimally invasive in-office procedure with little or no downtime! We are particularly excited about results we are seeing that are already effectively treating loose skin in the neck.
Feel free to call us in Augusta at (207) 873-2158 or in Scarborough at (207) 303-0125to schedule your free consultation to see how this groundbreaking technology can help you. We can customize the treatment regimen to fit your individual skin needs and concerns. As always, we remain committed to our mission of “beautifying Maine one face (and body) at a time.”
