How does the Scarlet RF treatment work?
Scarlet RF was developed to overcome the limitations of conventional radio frequency (RF) treatments. The Scarlet RF treatment works by precisely delivering RF energy into the lower layers of the dermis using microneedles.
During the procedure, the revolutionary Scarlet microneedle tip which consists of a high-tech microchip monitored by the device’s computer, is placed on the skin’s surface while the microneedles penetrate the skin at each pulse. The needle penetration depth is customized and ranges from 0.5mm to 3.5mm, depending on the area and the individual being treated. During the penetration, RF energy is transmitted into the skin tissue to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin.
Scarlet RF treatments regenerate the collagen and remodel the dermal elastic fibres, gradually and continuously restoring the skin’s laxity and skin tone. Just a few days after the treatment fine lines, wrinkles, the texture and firmness of the skin are noticeably improved. This skin tightening procedure is also used to reduce acne scarring, pore size appearance, eyelid, under-eye sagging etc.
Indications for the Scarlet RF treatment:
- Acne scars
- Post-trauma scars
- Skin Laxity (loose skin)
- Periorbital (eye) and perioral (mouth) wrinkles
- Loose skin on the upper and lower eye lids
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Rough texture and open pores
- Sallow and tired looking skin
- Photodamage/ discolorations
- Stretch marks
When are the results noticeable?
The results are noticeable a few days after the first session, but full results can only be observed 8-12 weeks following treatment.
The number of sessions required depends on the problem that is being treated and its extent. Generally, 3-5 sessions are required with 1-month interval in between sessions. The treatment can be conducted throughout the year, even during the summer.
How long is the recovery time?
A mild erythema and edema can be observed immediately after treatment but subside after a few hours. There might be a mild irritation and a feeling of dryness for 24-48 hours after treatment, which will subside gradually with the help of specialized moisturizing and rejuvenating products. Just a few days after treatment a fresh, radiant and rejuvenated skin will be revealed.
Are there any treatment reactions or contraindications?
Strong peelings, lasers or any ablative treatments should be avoided at least 10 days pre and post the Scarlet RF treatment.
