This radio-frequency device is manufactured and used worldwide by California-based Cutera, a pioneering developer for more than two decades of devices and other solutions for the medical aesthetic industry.
Secret RF is a novel approach to stimulate and remodel collagen to aid skin tightening and rejuvenation, scar revision and the diminishing of stretch marks.

We especially like this multi-layered treatment because it also can be so easily tailored to address a client’s unique skin concern during each customized treatment.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about Secret RF Microneedling. We invite you to contact us for more information.
WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS DOES SECRET RF MICRONEEDLING TREAT?
The Secret RF treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars, acnes scars, skin quality and striae. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and patients seeking skin revitalization.
WHAT IS THE SECRET RF PROCEDURE LIKE?
Secret RF is a easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 15-minute treatment session. During the treatment, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area. For most patients, the treatment is tolerable, but your provider will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Before the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to increase comfort during the treatment.
HOW MANY SECRET RF TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment. However, results are optimized three months after the last treatment.
HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT LAST?
Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PROCEDURE?
After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
