Secret RF microneedling is an innovative new aesthetic treatment that stimulates and remodels collagen to improve the signs of aging skin including fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage and scars. Every person's skin will undergo microscopic damage that leads to the loss of skin collagen. This loss of collagen in the skin occurs with age, but is accelerated by toxins, stress and sun damage. Moreover, acne can leave scars and life events can sometimes leave unwanted stretch marks. The Secret RF treatment revitalizes skin at a deeper than other energy-based treatments delivering consistent results with minimal downtime.
The Secret RF treatment uses microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results on all skin types unlike many lasers. Secret RF is an easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 20 minute treatment session. To achieve the optimal effect, 3-4 Secret RF treatments are recommended. You'll start to notice results after your second treatment, but optimal results appear 3 months after the last treatment. We customize a treatment to meet your specific needs. And because it causes minimal damage to your skin's surface, healing times are brief - so you can get back to your routine almost right away!
Improve your skin quality and achieve a reduction in the appearance of:

The first signs of aging often appear as wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, cheeks and lips. While wrinkles are normal defining features, they sometimes confer a constantly tired or more aged appearance. There are two major categories of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are present in the skin even when the face is completely relaxed, ie during rest or sleep. Dynamic wrinkles occur during facial expression.
Botox has become very popular to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Botox, a neuromodulator, paralyzes these muscles so that they cannot contract and cause wrinkles. Recent studies also suggest that long-term use of botox reduces the chance of developing static winkles.
Botox, a muscle relaxant, does not work well on wrinkles that are present in the face at rest or static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are often the result of damage to the skin and its underlying support structure -- the collagen attachments. Since sun and age cause a loss of collagen, collagen fillers are designed to restore the lost volume. Therefore, collagen fillers can be used to sculpt the facial contours to obtain a more youthful appearance.
Incisional surgery may sometimes be used alone or in conjunction with the above facial rejuvenation methods to achieve the a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.
Fat Pocket Sculpting
Lower eyelid bags or festoons can be addressed surgically better by repositioning the fat pads rather than reducing them. In certain individuals, removing tissue sometimes gives a gaunt, skeletonized appearance. The decision to reposition or remove the fat pads is best discussed with your ophthalmologist during your consultation.
