Because you have shown interest in this article, we will let you in on a secret—in here you will find the different benefits your skin can enjoy when you undergo a Secret RF procedure in Singapore. Want to know more? Read on.
It is a bummer that we do not get to keep the skin that we used to have as a baby—the one with the clear and even surface, plus a perfect bounce. Each year that adds to our age causes our body to wear and tear. By the time we reach puberty, most of us have probably faced a significant (and maybe traumatic) challenge concerning our body and skin. It is during this time that our body begins to change; our hormones have gone berserk, creating imbalances on the inside that then gets projected outside. Acne is one of the most common conditions that arise during our puberty stage.
Dealing with acne can be stressful. Those painful cystic bumps often drive us to pick on them, despite the warnings of doctors not to do so. If you were a part of the many acne sufferers who took matters into their own hands and attacked those pesky red bumps and squeezed them thinking they would disappear the next day, then probably by now your face still displays the memory of your impulsive and harsh skin treatment. Acne scars are the sad reminders of the existence of acne on our skin, especially those that we have pricked.
As if acne scars are not ugly enough to desecrate our once impeccable face, aging also brings other flaws that can make our skin look old and dull. Wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin surface cause our face to appear tired and older than out actual age.
Is there a way to treat all of these annoying blemishes and obtain a skin that looks revitalized and flawless?
Introducing: Secret RF
Secret RF is not even a secret, literally speaking, as it is one of the most popular radiofrequency microneedling treatments available in Singapore. Your skin can benefit from this treatment as it can smoothen, revitalize, and refresh skin that has fine lines, wrinkles, and scars from acne.
This non-surgical procedure is administered using fractional radio frequency and microneedling. It is best used for the following types of acne scars:
- Boxcar scars
- Ice pick scars
- Rolling scars
Aside from dealing with acne scars, Secret RF can also improve the appearance of the skin by tightening and lifting it, as well as banishing fine lines and wrinkles.
Am I a suitable candidate for Secret RF?
The best candidates for a Secret RF treatment are individuals who have one or more of the following skin conditions:
- Acne scars (e.g. boxcar scars, rolling scars, ice pick scars)
- Fine lines
- Pores that are large and visible
- Uneven skin texture
- Uneven skin tone
While Secret RF is safe for all types of skin, it still has some limitations. Individuals should not undergo Secret RF if they:
- Are currently having a cold sore
- Are battling with a skin infection
- Are dealing with skin diseases that are moderate to severe in condition (e.g. psoriasis)
- Are using medications like anticoagulants and Accutane
- Are pregnant
- Are prone to developing keloid or hypertrophic scars
How is Secret RF performed?
Secret RF uses a powerful machine with a handheld device that comes with microneedles that are gold-plated and ultra-fine. The machine releases Bipolar RF energy through the microneedles once they are in contact with the skin. As the microneedles enter and go deep into the skin, the RF energy triggers the production of new collagen, which then works to regenerate healthy and new skin cells.
Won’t the needles cause even more damage as they prick through the skin?
We get the concern about needles pricking through the skin and causing more damage, but there is no need to be anxious about getting further skin imperfections with Secret RF. The needles used in this equipment are so fine that they leave the skin unharmed once they touch it. The device can be suitable for all types of skin, even for dark skin tones.
What is the recovery process like following treatment of Secret RF?
Following a Secret RF procedure, patients will be advised not to use makeup or any topical skincare product, aside from any medication prescribed by the doctor. There may be minor inflammation or redness in the treatment area, but this is only temporary and should disappear within the next twelve to twenty-four hours. Patients should stay out of being exposed to direct sunlight for a few weeks in the course of the healing period as the skin is extremely sensitive during this time. Gentle facial wash and sunscreen are usually recommended by doctors for post-treatment care.
Are there side effects or complications after a Secret RF procedure?
Side effects and complications can happen following any type of procedure, such as Secret RF, depending on how the skin reacts to the treatment. For radiofrequency micro needling procedures, side effects like redness, dryness, itching, swelling, mild acne and/or cold sore breakout can happen. You should immediately contact your medical service provider if these side effects do not clear out after a few days or if you develop any complications, such as skin bruising and infections, prolonged swelling or bleeding, headache and fatigue.
How fast can results be achieved?
Improvements in the skin from a Secret RF treatment are usually noticeable after the second treatment. Overall optimum results will appear approximately three months after the last Secret RF session.
How often do I need a Secret RF treatment?
The number of treatments that a patient needs to achieve the best results with Secret RF treatment will vary depending on condition and needs of the skin. Generally, patients will need at least four to five sessions at intervals of every three weeks. To enjoy long lasting results, it is highly recommended that patients undergo maintenance Secret RF treatments at least once every twelve to eighteen months.
