What is Secret RF Laser
The RF laser uses insulated and semi-insulated micro needles to deliver RF energy to varying skin layers and reach the deeper layers of your skin (the dermis) where collagen and elastin is produced and tissue regenerated.
Most of the other devices only deliver energy to the top layers of skin whereas Secret RF transports energy through micro needles to the target areas below the surface where the epidermis is preserved. With Secret RF, the intensity of energy, its depth and its pulse duration can be adjusted. Unlike most other devices, the RF laser can be controlled for more precision and better outcomes.
At your initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and express your concerns about a procedure. Make sure to have all of your questions answered before your procedure. It may be suggested that taking arnica montana tablets the day before your treatment and for one week after may help your recovery.
We will discuss your health history and make a recommendation for a procedure based on your needs. It will be best to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun or tanning booths a couple of weeks before your procedure. Also, avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen for at least ten days prior to your surgery.

The Secret RF laser treatment can take up to two hours. For face and neck treatments, it may take an hour depending on what is being done. For other areas like hands and neck, even less time.
Numbing cream will be applied to the treated area for comfort. The procedure is pretty tolerable for most patients with minimal complaints of slight heating and pressure on the treatment area. How it works is that Secret RF uses an ultrafine needle to gently puncture your skin and deliver the laser energy. When your skin heals from the wounds, it produces more collagen for a firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
The Secret RF device uses 10 to 25 disposable microscopic needle tips that attach to the end of the instrument. The tips gently puncture the skin’s surface at predetermined depths and delivers precise energy deep into the skin. The laser restructures areas that have been damaged by age, acne scarring or stretch marks. It rebuilds the skin’s support system giving the top layers of your skin a smooth appearance.
You can expect minor redness and some swelling for at least 12 hours and up to three days. It is also normal to have a sandpaper feel to your skin for a few days after your procedure. Make sure you keep the treated skin clean but not washed for the first day.
There is very little discomfort after surgery and most patients return to normal activities the next day. After a couple of days, you can feel confident in social activities without anyone realizing you had a procedure done.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are You a Good Candidate for Secret RF Laser?
Anyone in good overall health can have this procedure.
What Are the Risks of Secret RF Laser?
The Secret RF laser treatment is considered very safe. Potential side effects such as blistering and hyperpigmentation are minimal.
How Many Treatments Are Recommended?
It depends on how you respond to the first treatment. The recommendation is a series of three treatments three to four weeks apart for maximum results.
How Soon Will I See Results?
It usually takes four to eight weeks after your procedure to see visible improvement. It takes a while for your skin to produce new collagen and elastin and rebuild old and damaged cells. It also depends on how fast your body heals. You will notice more changes in your skin after the second treatment. Overall, it will take between three to six months for you to see the complete results after you complete all of the treatments.
What Are the Benefits of the Secret RF Laser?
There are many advantages to getting an RF laser treatment, including:
The procedure is customized for you and your specific needs.
Depending on your condition, the percentage of your skin that is treated gets adjusted accordingly.
There is minimal pain and side effects.
Secret RF uses a fractional RF technology to minimize downtime.
It enables your skin to recover quicker.
Risks and complications are kept at a minimum.
Through several treatments, RF laser treats each cell at least once.
Why Choose Secret RF Over Other Skin Resurfacing Treatments?
Secret RF laser offers similar results to ablative laser procedures but with less discomfort and downtime. There is also less risk for hyperpigmentation, especially for people with darker skin. RF laser sidesteps the epidermis, the most superficial layer, which is more prone to side effects and longer downtime.
Unlike laser skin resurfacing or deep chemical peels, Secret RF delivers the energy in the lower dermis which minimizes damage to the skin’s surface. Secret RF is a better alternative because it improves the skin texture, skin tightening and skin that is prone to scarring or hyperpigmentation.
