The Microneedling Craze: Pearland Plastic Surgeon Reveals Why Suddenly Everyone Wants It

By Christopher Hankins, MD

Have you heard about the new microneedling craze? Is your skin showing signs of age and damage from the sun? Everyone is on board with Secret™ RF. Premier Plastic Surgery offers Secret™ RF in their Pearland, Texas, office.

What is Secret™ RF?

Pearland Premier Plastic SurgerSecret™ RF is a revolutionary rejuvenation treatment for your skin. Microneedling has seen an 85% increase in interest in 2017. This state-of-the-art procedure combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling for the most desirable results. Secret™ RF uses a combination of techniques to send radiofrequency energy deep into your skin. Other techniques are not able to reach this far into your skin. The procedure provides the benefits of microneedling with added benefits like collagen and skin tightening.

How is Secret™ RF Performed?

The Secret™ RF procedure is performed by applying topical anesthesia to the skin so that the patient should not feel any pain during or after the procedure. Secret™ RF is also performed using the handpiece and will make small punctures in the face to deliver the energy transfer. Patients can expect to feel a warm sensation in the face, but Secret™ RF is fairly comfortable otherwise.

Secret™ RF is different from other facial treatments because there is no downtime required. Patients receiving Secret™ RF can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, but should not apply makeup until the following day. There may also be some redness or minor swelling in the face, but these common side effects should diminish within a day.

Am I a Candidate for Secret™ RF?

Do you suffer from unwanted fine lines and wrinkles? What about acne scars and age spots? Do you have stretch marks you want to get rid of? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Secret™ RF may be the solution for you. This procedure is also safe for all skin types and is suitable for most patients.

What Results Does Secret™ RF Produce?

Patients typically notice results about one month after their Secret™ RF procedure. Results begin to appear after the skin heals and collagen begins to strengthen beneath the skin. Most doctors recommend a series of Secret™ RF treatments for best results. Most patients typically need three or four treatments that can occur one month apart for optimal results. After the initial optimal result is reached, patients should continue with annual treatments.
