Why waste time on combining anti-ageing treatments when you have Secret RF?

The quest for younger-looking skin often involves a series of treatments - fillers, botox and other injectables to treat the trajectory of ageing. Then there’s also the effects of saggy skin and cellulite on our body, which would require a slew of other anti-ageing treatments. 

We’ve talked about what Secret RF can do for acne and acne scars, but most are unaware that it can also treat other natural effects of ageing like melasma, wrinkles, fine lines and other skin conditions. Yes, Secret RF can be used on the body for body contouring purposes - how does it work, and what benefits can we expect? 

Let us dive into the mechanics of exactly how Secret RF helps you to combat ageing and melasma.

Improved extracellular matrix

Secret RF uses radiofrequency (RF) currents from needle tips that induce direct changes in the dermo-epidermal junction and dermis with minimal ablation (destruction of tissue) to the epidermis. Secret RF can effectively treat melasma because it improves the impaired extracellular matrix (ECM) of the skin, commonly found in melasma lesions.

Combination therapy

A combination of micro-needling RF and laser toning has been shown to work well in loosening melanocytes from epidermal cells. The microneedles are able to create pores that allow the melanosomes (where melanin is stored) to drop off into the dermis. 

Elimination of melanin

Through the micro-needling method, it is also easier to eliminate melanin, the pigment cells causing the dark spots. Using microscopes, scientists have found that melanocytes, the cells producing melanin pigment, shrank and reduced in volume after using combination therapy of micro-needling RF and laser toning. This indicates that the melanocytes have been damaged, which in turn results in reduced melanin production. 

Reduced inflammation 

It is known that exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can trigger inflammation and hence the release of histamine from mast cells in the skin. This then stimulates the proliferation of melanocytes that migrate to the area. It has been shown that the micro-needling RF technique is able to reduce inflammation and mast cell numbers, hence improving melasma. 

Thickening of the skin

Dermatologists have postulated that melasma is associated with thinning skin as shown in skin biopsies. This thinning skin may be due to the normal effects of ageing, which can be counteracted through Secret RF. Secret RF has added benefits of thickening the dermal layers of the skin and stimulating collagen production for more supple skin. Therefore, by thickening the skin, Secret RF is able to treat melasma, fine lines and wrinkles, tightening the skin and producing distinct rejuvenation effects. 

Other applications (Secret RF body)

We often associate collagen production with its positive effects on our face, but triggering collagen production can have effects in many aspects, including our body and conditions like sweaty armpits. 

As a whole, Secret RF has been shown to improve: 

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Scars from surgery 
  • Axillary hyperhidrosis or sweaty armpits (RF micro-needling destroys sweat glands by using heat or thermal energy)
  • Stretch marks 
  • Cellulite
  • Hair loss (RF energy is released into the collagen fibres of the scalp, which triggers new collagen and elastin fibres as well as growth factors. As a result, hair loss slows down and the structure and thickness of hair is restored) 

So, Secret RF can treat not only acne and acne scars, but also help you to combat the effects of ageing and treat hyperpigmentation woes like melasma.
