Scarlet Radio Frequency
What is Scarlet SRF?
Scarlet SRF is an innovative skin treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) with micro-needling to restore aging skin! Traditional micro-needling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin using micro-needles which causes the skin to start the healing process to stimulate collagen production. This helps with skin tightening and improvement of superficial appearance.
Scarlet SRF is an FDA-approved treatment that intensifies the traditional micro-needling process by incorporating radio-frequency energy. Microneedling helps with collagen production. By adding radiofrequency, triggers even more collagen production and causes subdermal tissues to tighten and contract. Scarlet SRF combines micro-needling with short-pulsed radiofrequency to target signs of aging by delivering bi-polar energy beneath the superficial layer of the skin in order to build collagen. It is a powerful, minimally invasive skin treatment that rejuvenates and lessens signs of aging by effectively tightening sagging skin, reducing wrinkles, improving texture and overall appearance. It also helps with scarring, stretch marks, and reducing pore size.
What areas can Scarlet SRF treat?
Scarlet SRF can treat a variety of areas such as the face (including the eye area), neck, chest, abdomen, scalp, inner thighs, arms, and more! It is safe for all skin types and drastic results have been achieved for close to 10 years using Scarlet SRF
How many sessions are needed?
To get optimal results, 3-4 treatments are usually recommended and they are spaced 1-3 months apart. Scarlet SRF has very minimal downtime; Redness and slight swelling are to be expected and go away within a few hours to a couple of days at most. You should see improvement in firmness and texture a few days to a week after your treatment with continuous improvement over the span of 2-3 months. Results last around a year and sometimes longer!
Free pre-consultation is required as pre-treatment protocol varies depending on the client.
7 days prior to treatment: no blood thinners, no invasive lasers, no sunburn, and avoid retinol.
Plan fillers (Juvederm, Restylane) for 4 weeks prior to or post-treatment.
It typically takes 3-4 treatments to see optimal results:
At each treatment session, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied.
Next, pressing the handheld device into your skin, the Scarlet will be stamped across the entire face (or a specific targeted treatment area).
When the microneedles puncture your skin, they emit the RF energy as heat, delivering it directly into the dermis. You may feel a warm, prickling sensation, but the treatment shouldn’t be painful because your skin will be numb.
After the treatment is complete, you may recieve a calming mask or balm for your skin.
