What is the Scarlet RF?
Scarlet SRF is a microneedling treatment that uses radio frequency to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging. This treatment stimulates new collagen production which also helps with improving skin texture, firmness, and tone. This treatment is a staff and patient favorite!
What are the different benefits of Scarlet RF?
The Scarlet RF truly is a great overall skin rejuvenation treatment because it’s versatile and has so many different benefits. This treatment is great to treat acne scars, shrink pores, tighten skin, improve skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Unlike the microneedinling pen which can be a little too harsh on the delicate skin around the eyes, the Scarlet RF is gentle enough to use around the eye to tighten and lift the skin.
Not only is it a great facial treatment, but you can use it to treat different areas of the body as well, including the arms, knees, stomach, and more! The Scarlet RF can be used to tighten sagging skin and to treat any scars on the body.
What to expect during your Scarlet RF appointment:
During your Scarlet RF appointment, your provider will apply numbing cream on the area about 45 minutes before your scheduled treatment time. This allows the numbing cream to completely sink in and take effect.
Once you are done numbing, the provider will have you wash off all of the numbing cream, and they will begin the treatment! The treatment takes about 30 minutes for the face and 15 minutes for the neck area.
What to expect after your Scarlet RF appointment:
One of the best parts of this treatment is that there is little to no downtime with the Scarlet RF. You may experience a little redness or swelling after treatment, but nothing significant. This should go away within 24-72 hours. You are able to return to your normal daily activities right after your Scarlet RF treatment!
You will notice some visible tightening immediately after your first session, but we do recommend a series of at least 3 treatments for the best results. The results last from 6 months to a year.
How does the Scarlet SRF treatment work?
The Scarlet SRF uses micro-needle electrodes bipolar radio frequency (RF) technology to coagulate dermal collagen and elastin fiber in skin. Electrocoagulation helps to rejuvenate existing dermal fibers and produce new collagen and elastin fibers, which improves skin tightening and texture of skin.
What does it treat?
Scarlet SRF microneedling is commonly performed to tighten and lift skin on the face, neck and body; improving skin texture, pores, photo-aging, scars and stretch marks.
How many treatments are required?
Scarlet SRF treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients with little to no downtime. The treatment is very comfortable and attractive to patients. More treatments give more results. We recommend 3 treatments during a year to
maximize skin rejuvenation.
How long does a treatment take?
Scarlet SRF treatment takes about 20 minutes for the face and 10 minutes for the neck. The time needed for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. The Scarlet SRF treatment is both time-efficient and revolutionarily effective.
Does it hurt?
The procedure itself feels warm. For a few hours after your treatment, redness and some swelling can be expected. Your skin may feel like you have had a mild sunburn.
Recovery time & side effects?
There is some social downtime, although patients can return to their regular daily activities immediately following treatment. Unlike other microneedling treatments, there is little to no bleeding or sensitivity. Though you may be red with a windburned-like appearance, this will resolve in a day.
Who is a good candidate?
Unlike many microneedling and laser treatments, Scarlet SRF, RF microneedling, is safe for ALL skin types along the Fitzpatrick scale: I, II, III, IV, V, and VI. Scarlet SRF evenly delivers treatment to each layer of the skin without the risk of epidermal pigmentation changes. Scarlet SRF technology is based on electric signals, which doesn’t affect skin color.
What is the procedure time?
Scarlet SRF treatments can take anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes. The time needed for a treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. Scarlet SRF is both time-efficient and revolutionarily effective.
When can I expect results?
In some cases, you’ll see almost immediate tightening, but the results of dermal remodeling appear gradually over two to three months with the generation of new collagen and elastin fibers. Exosomes will help hasten healing time and improve your results. Ask your provider to add them to your treatment.
