Microneedling Non-Surgical Solution
How does the Scarlet SRF treatment work?
Scarlet SRF uses micro-needle radio frequency (RF) technology to “remodel” collagen production and elastin in both the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. The heat from the Scarlet RF produces new collagen and elastin fibers, improving the texture and tightening the skin. It also produces small micro-channels in the skin to allow a pathway to apply “growth factors” or other skincare products.
What does Scarlet SRF treat?
Scarlet SRF treats skin laxity and crepey skin, on the face & body. When tightening the skin, it improves fine lines/wrinkles as well as the “tone & texture” of your skin. It can also reduce the pore size and greatly improve Acne scarring. It can soften post-surgical scars, in addition, to stretch marks as well.
What does it feel like?
Your face will be numbed using a topical numbing cream applied 30 minutes prior to your treatment. After numbing, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face and a small amount of heat sensation. Most patients report experiencing minimal to moderate discomfort, but no acute pain. The micro-needles are extremely thin and work with gentle pressure for maximum comfort. Our nurse will also adjust the intensity of the Scarlet based on your discomfort level to make it tolerable, as everyone is different.
How many treatments are required?
Scarlet treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients, but most noticeable results are seen after 3 treatments, spaced 30 days apart. More treatments give more results. We recommend 3 treatments to maximize your skin rejuvenation effect, as a result of collagen remodeling, and up to 5-7 treatments for more severe acne scarring.
How is Scarlet SRF treatment for different skin types?
Scarlet is safe and works on all skin types. Because it uses RF technology, which is much friendlier to darker skin types, it is easier to treat darker skin vs. other technologies.
How long does a treatment take?
Scarlet takes about 30 minutes for the face and approximately 15 minutes for the neck or décolletage. The time needed for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated.
Is there any downtime...
What do I look like after treatment?
Minimal to No downtime. You may be slightly red or flush, (like a sunburn) immediately after, but it fades away within several hours. Scarlet treatment doesn’t need any special preparation or follow-up regimen. Basic skin care and sunscreen is enough for aftercare. Most patients return to their regular activities 3-4 hours following treatment.
When do the results appear? How long do they last?
Visible tightening results come immediately, and the results of dermal remodeling appear over time in the course of new collagen, elastin, and vascular rejuvenation. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in 2-3 months. The results can last 6 months to a year following a single treatment, depending on your skin condition and aging process. Maintenance treatments can be done once every 4-12 mos. following your initial treatments.
