Our Most Popular Skin Resurfacing Treatment
We specialize in Cutera Secret RF Microneedling treatments, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy.
By using microneedles to improve the appearance of wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, scars, sun damage and aging, after just one treatment, you will notice the often stunning, effective results of just a single Cutera Secret RF Microneedling procedure.
We often recommend three treatments to see the full benefit.
Many patients wonder just how does RF Microneedling work?
By using a series of micro needle punctures to the skin in order to create trauma to the area. This stimulates increased collagen production, leading to firmer and younger looking appearance of the skin. RF Microneedling treatments also allow serums to be absorbed by your skin, helping to create healthier skin growth and improved texture.

What Is the Difference between Cutera Secret RF and Other Types of Microneedling??
Traditional radiofrequency devices have a handheld piece that delivers RF energy to the surface of the skin that has to penetrate into the deeper layers to produce collagen stimulating effects. Although other microneedling devices can be effective, their anti-aging effects may not be as long-lasting.

What does it feel like?
Before your treatment, numbing cream is applied to make the RF Microneedling procedure more comfortable. Most patients see some redness immediately after the treatment.
The good news is the redness lasts for a short period of time. You may also experience some minor swelling in the area that was treated. You will see results after one session, but the recommended treatment plan is three treatments, 30 days apart. After three treatments, you should come back in six months to maintain your amazing results.
Combining RF MicroNeedling With PRP
When PRP is applied to the treated skin area following Cutera’s Secret Microneedling, the micro-channels help fully absorb the PRP and supercharges the microneedling benefits for best age disruption. This combination also helps with eye puffiness and dark circles. Generally, there is little to no recovery time needed.
Combining RF Microneedling with Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment means we will draw blood (like a standard blood draw at the doctor’s office) to create a blood sample.
Your blood is then placed into a centrifuge, separating the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Your blood plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors that will be then applied topically on your skin as well as injected in different treated areas to help stimulate the best collagen and elastin production as this boost dramatically helps the return your health, youthful-looking skin.
When PRP is applied to the treated skin area following RF MicroNeedling , the little holes created by the micro needles help to ensure that the PRP is fully absorbed.
PRP supercharges the RF MicroNeedling benefits for best age disruption. This combination also helps under eye puffiness and dark circles. Generally, there is little to no recovery time needed.
RF Microneedling Helps Treat Scars
Secret RF Microneedling has more successful results than traditional microneedling when it comes to wrinkles, treating scars, reducing acne scars. Acne scars and other forms of scarring can create rough, thick patches of damaged skin that are resistant to traditional microneedling. The Radiofrequency energy breaks up tough patches of damaged skin and allows better healing benefits.

SECRET'S RF MicroNeedling and PRP Combined Treatment Explained:
What a fantastic combination to create beautiful, younger looking skin! How does this help your skin concerns?
In one treatment, combining RF Microneedling, and PRP starts with the penetration of micro needles into your skin to deliver radiofrequency pulses into the targeted area. Micro needles create minor injury to the tissue. These injured cells release growth and wound healing signals and are stimulated to produce new collagen. The new collagen fills in the treated areas and thickens your skin. The heat generated by Radiofrequency impulses produce a faster healing response causing more collagen production and remodeling, speeding up the revitalization process.
Lastly, when the PRP or Platelet-rich plasma (your own blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets) is added, these platelets release several different growth factors to promote healing and deeper skin tissue responses attracting your stem cells to repair the treated area.
When used in treated tissue, PRP can induce a faster remodeling of your skin to introduce a healthier and younger state.
