Scarlet SRF

Scarlet RF Micro-needling

The quality of your skin gradually declines due to various factors. The sun has a damaging effect, leading to hyperpigmentation. Your body’s natural collagen production, which plays a significant role in your skin’s firmness, declines. Acne scars leave behind scars that seem never to go away. When these cosmetic issues become apparent on your face, they can damage your self-confidence and how others perceive you. While it may feel as though you need to settle with them, letting them continue to define your appearance, this is not the case. Scarlet radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can rid these cosmetic concerns of your image. 

Scarlet RF microneedling, offered at De La Belle Wellness & Spa, is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses a wide range of cosmetic concerns.

What Is Scarlet RF Microneedling?

Scarlet RF microneedling is a treatment that’s designed to trigger your skin’s natural healing properties to create a more youthful image. The treatment involves using a microneedling device, a device with many short needles, to puncture the top layer of your skin, which creates micro-channels. In response to these tiny wounds, your body stimulates its production of collagen and cellular renewal, causing the injuries to not only repair but your skin to tighten and cosmetic imperfections to fade. 

The radiofrequency energy that Scarlet utilizes helps take your microneedling treatment a step further. Each needle of the microneedle device acts as electrodes that emit pulses of RF energy. RF energy is commonly used in cosmetics because its heating properties promote skin tightening and contouring. Through the micro-channels produced by the microneedling device, RF energy reaches the lower layers of your skin to trigger greater collagen production. It causes your deeper tissues to tighten and contract, resulting in a youthful glow. 

Scarlet RF microneedling is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment. 

What Does It Treat?

Scarlet RF microneedling is particularly unique because it treats a wide range of cosmetic issues. Concerns that Scarlet RF microneedling can treat includes:

  • Active acne and acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

After one Scarlet RF microneedling treatment, you will notice a significant improvement in your skin’s quality. However, to attain optimal results, multiple Scarlet RF microneedling treatment is recommended. Three to four treatments spaced one month apart are typically recommended to achieve the best results. If you have more serious cosmetic concerns, such as deep wrinkles or acne scars, a series of five to seven treatments may be best. Our Scarlet RF microneedling provider will review your skin’s quality during an initial consultation and recommend a number of treatments based on your desired results. 

Your results can be maintained by having Scarlet RF microneedling performed once every four to six months after your initial series of treatments. 

How Does It Feel?

Your Scarlet RF microneedling treatment will involve using a topical numbing cream. Because of this, the treatment is generally tolerable. At most, you will experience a light pressure against your treatment area and a mild heading sensation. Also, the intensity of the handheld device can be adjusted to your comfort levels. 

Am I a Candidate for Scarlet RF Microneedling?

Scarlet RF microneedling is a treatment that can be performed on men and women of any skin tone and type. The treatment is best performed on patients with some degree of skin laxity, acne scarring and sun damage. The treatment is an excellent alternative if you’re wary of more aggressive skin resurfacing treatments, which remove the outer layers of skin because it focuses specifically on your deeper layers of skin without causing significant damage to surface layers. Essentially, suppose you have mild to moderate skin laxity and desire improvement but don’t want to undergo an extensive treatment or surgical procedure to address your concerns. In that case, Scarlet RF microneedling is right for you. 

Your skin’s quality will be reviewed during an initial consultation to ensure candidacy.

How Is Scarlet RF Microneedling Performed?

Before applying the Scarlet RF microneedling device to your skin, your provider will cleanse and sterilize your skin. The topical numbing agent will then be applied to help mitigate any discomfort. Once the agent takes effect, your provider will begin gently stamping the Scarlet RF microneedling device against your skin. Your provider will pass the device across your entire facial structure to ensure consistency. With each puncture, the RF energy will emit from the handheld device and heat your lower layers of skin. You may feel a heating sensation, but it won’t be painful because of the numbing agent. After making enough passes with the device, a cooling cream may be applied to your skin. A Scarlet RF microneedling treatment typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes. 

What Results Can I Expect After My Scarlet RF Microneedling Treatment?

Scarlet RF microneedling was designed to have mild side effects so that no downtime will be required after your treatment. You can return to normal activities immediately afterward. Your skin may have a red color after treatment, but this will fade away after several hours. Sun exposure should be avoided until your skin has fully recovered, so your results are not disrupted.

Immediately after your treatment, you may notice your skin feel tauter. Over time, your collagen production will continue to increase, causing particular cosmetic flaws, including sun damage and fine lines, to gradually fade. After two to three months, you will notice significant improvement. 

Scarlet RF microneedling results last approximately six months to one year and can be maintained with subsequent treatments every four to six months.
