It’s no secret that, as we age, our skin becomes prone to fatigue, discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles. As the body takes longer to recover from damage caused by exposure to the sun and pollution, for example, many people can become increasingly aware of the visible effects of ageing. One of the biggest signs of ageing is a reduced level of collagen present in the body, which most notably affects the face and neck areas. This can make it tough to find the right products to match the needs of your individual skin type and requirements.
However, at PHI Clinic, we work with you to provide as much – or as little – therapy as you need to feel your best. The Secret RF is just one treatment that can be used to help mimic the production of collagen, by using radio frequency alongside a micro-needling system. Able to provide consistent results, while requiring very little downtime, Secret RF is quickly becoming a popular choice with those who want to combat the typical signs of ageing.Book consultation
The Secret RF uses radio frequencies and micro-needles to coagulate the blood and create haemostasis. In other words, the blood becomes a little thicker and replicates the same action as collagen within the body. When the coagulated blood remains in the treated area, you’ll find that fine lines and wrinkles become less apparent, while scars are much less noticeable.
This therapy is unique in that it can create a range of different frequencies to better suit the area of treatment, as well as the skin type of the individual receiving the session. It can also reach different depths within the layers of the skin, allowing for a much more effective response, even within challenging skin.
Two different handpieces can be chosen, which are each designed to fit within the size of the area requiring treatment. This allows for patients to be treated in as little as twenty minutes – and, with minimal downtime, you can be back to your normal leisure experience within a few hours.
Frequently Asked Questions
Results can be seen in as little as one session, but the optimal number of sessions required will be discussed with you during your consultation. For most people, this is usually three to four treatments, although you will likely see the results after the second treatment and anywhere up to three months after the first session.
As long as you are in generally good health, then you are able to take part in treatment with Secret RF. Any area of the face and body can be considered, and both men and women can benefit from using this innovative treatment.
Due to the wide range of frequencies available, along with two different handpieces and the adjustable depth of the instruments, this treatment is suitable for all skin types and concerns. The Secret RF is most popular with people who want to minimise the look of fine lines and wrinkles, or for those with scarring caused by acne.
Your treatment will be performed by a qualified and fully trained professional. One of our highly trained aestheticians will be happy to talk you through the treatment and meet with you beforehand, to answer any questions you may have.
Any area on the body and face can be treated, although you should be aware that larger areas may need more sessions than smaller areas. Similarly, challenging skin may take more sessions than non-challenging skin. Your fully-trained and qualified aesthetician will discuss this with you, during your consultation.
Thanks to the unique delivery of Secret RF, there is little to no downtime required after sessions. On the day of your treatment, you may find that your skin has a little redness and may be a little sore to touch or have minor swelling. However, by the third day, you can usually return to wearing makeup and using skin creams.
