Secret™ RF combines CO2 laser and Micro-Needling RF technology for the optimal result for scar removal and photo-aging treatments. CO2 fractional laser enables intense superficial heating stimulation while Micro-Needling FR provides high volumetric heating that can reach deep dermal layers. This dual function allows safe and effective treatment on all skin types with maximum versatility. The best of both worlds providing an evening of tone & deep level tightening.
The Secret™ RF Laser radiates micro laser beam scanner on the skin and induces resurfacing on the epidermis and regenerating on the dermis as optimum thermal effect.
If you suffer from skin imperfections or progressive signs of aging, the Secret™ RF CO2 Laser treatment is a viable alternative to invasive surgical procedures that typically cost a lot more and entail longer downtimes. Patients who undergo this procedure can expect skin that becomes increasingly smoother, clearer, and more rejuvenated after the treatment.
Secret™ RF is designed to treat and reduce the appearance of the following:
- Severe signs of sun damage/age spots
- Deeper fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Large pores
- Uneven skin tone
Your Trillium Creek provider will first apply a topical anesthetic on your entire face or specific target areas and wait until it is sufficiently numb. Alternatively, a sedative may also be used, depending on your anesthetic needs and the extent of the treatment.
The provider will then begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with both the fractional laser and micro-needle hand pieces. Heat and tingling sensations can be expected as the laser moves across the skin.
Depending on the size of the target areas, the procedure may take anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. For a full face treatment, the treatment can last up to two hours.
This outpatient procedure typically entails several days of downtime. Immediately after the operation, treated areas will be red and warm to the touch. Ice packs or a cold compress may be applied for 5 to 10 minutes per hour during the first 5 to 6 hours post-treatment in order to ease discomfort. A thick topical gel may be prescribed to protect and speed up the healing process, and you may be advised to avoid showering for the first few days.
The skin will take about 3 to 14 days to shed dead skin and heal completely. However, for around 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, the treated areas will remain pinkish and slightly blotchy. While your skin will already start to show noticeable improvements after the initial recovery, the final results will only be revealed in about 3 to 6 months.
The benefits of combining a CO2 laser with micro-needle RF fractional permit the treatment of all skin types and provide multi-treatment opportunities with deep and superficial stimulation to treat a larger range of applications increasing the effectiveness of the treatment and reducing side effects.
