RF Microneedling

Our tailored skin tightening treatment utilizes the advanced microneedling technology of the Cutera Secret Pro to achieve remarkable firming and smoothing outcomes that elevate skin rejuvenation. Gently stimulating collagen production deep within the skin, RF microneedling can diminish fine lines and wrinkles, enhance skin tone, and restore elasticity, contributing to a fresher, radiant look.

At FCP Dermatology, we’re experts in this transformative technique, employing advanced tools like the Secret Pro and tailoring each treatment to suit your skincare goals.

Introduction to RF Microneedling

RF microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the added advantage of radiofrequency energy. Microneedling involves using fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, prompting collagen and elastin production, which is essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. As a result, microneedling can improve the skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines. Simultaneously, RF energy penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, heating the tissue and further stimulating collagen and elastin production. This not only enhances the effects of microneedling but also tightens and reduces the appearance of excess skin and stretch marks, improving overall skin firmness. RF microneedling is a versatile treatment that can address various skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, arms, and abdomen, such as wrinkles, scars, sagging, and stretch marks.

Increases collagen production to result in firmer, glowing skin.

Reduce appearance of loose, sagging skin with improved laxity.

Effective non-invasive option compared to surgical procedures for skin tightening.

Improves uneven skin texture with skin regeneration and exfoliation.

Secret Pro RF Microneedling

The Secret Pro RF Microneedling treatment’s most significant advantage is that it can perform fractional CO2 laser resurfacing within the same session. Laser treatment and RF microneedling work together to further stimulate collagen and elastin production to optimize skin vitality and regeneration. Fractional laser resurfacing has the additional benefit of targeting melanin deposits in the skin, minimizing sun spots and hyperpigmentation and resulting in a brighter and more even skin tone with minimal downtime.

What To Expect During a RF Microneedling Treatment

Secret Pro RF microneedling is ideal for individuals seeking to tighten loose skin, reduce wrinkles, scars, acne marks, or stretch marks. Suitable for all skin types, this treatment stimulates collagen for skin rejuvenation. However, those with active infections, pregnancy, certain medical conditions, or using specific medications may not be eligible. Consult with our dermatologist to determine if this treatment is right for you.

At FCP Dermatology Clinic, our process begins with a comprehensive initial consultation to assess your skin concerns and goals. Our experienced dermatologist will evaluate your skin type, discuss your medical history, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Once we establish a treatment plan, the treatment will start with topical numbing of the treatment areas to minimize discomfort. After taking effect, the skin tightening process using Cutera Secret Pro begins. Our skilled dermatologists carefully adjust the treatment parameters to ensure patient comfort and safety throughout the procedure. The treatment can take anywhere from thirty minutes to one hour to complete.

Following the treatment, clients can expect some redness and mild swelling to occur initially, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. We guide post-treatment care that may include using gentle skin care products, avoiding direct sun exposure, and staying hydrated.

To achieve optimal results, clients may undergo a series of 3 to 4 sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. Initial improvements can be seen within a few days to a few weeks, but the full extent will continue to develop gradually over several weeks to months.

Morpheous8 vs Cutera Secret Pro

Morpheus 8 treatment is an RF microneedling treatment that penetrates its needles very deep in the skin with RF energy, targeting underlying tissue. Morpheus 8 targets so deep that it can melt fat below the skin surface, resulting in more saggy skin. Morpheus 8 treatment does not have the option to reduce its therapy to superficial skin depths like the Secret Pro can. The Morpheus 8 treatment is limited to more specific patients and concerns, as not everyone is a candidate for a reduction of facial volume. The Secret Pro’s inclusivity allows it to effectively address skin concerns across various skin types, depths, and sensitivities. It can provide a comprehensive skin tightening and resurfacing treatment, targeting all layers of the skin without altering the shape of your face or creating more saggy skin. RF microneedling with Secret Pro gives a more youthful, lifted, and rejuvenated appearance with more safety,  less discomfort and minimal downtime.
