Who is a candidate for the Secret RF procedure?

How long should I expect to be at Midland Dermatology for my Secret RF appointment?
- Around 45 minutes before the treatment, you’ll receive a topical anesthetic cream to help numb the area.
- After the anesthetic cream takes effect, the Secret RF treatment itself will last about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
- Overall, please expect to be at our clinic for 1.5 – 2 hours.
How many Secret RF treatments will I need?
On average, patients will need about 3-4 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks, to achieve their desired appearance. The second treatment is when most patients begin seeing results, while the best results are about 3 months after the last treatment.
Is the Secret RF procedure painful?
Secret RF is one of the least painful procedures to reduce the appearance of scarring, aging, and more. During the procedure, you will likely feel some pressure and heat on the treated area, but most patients do not find the Secret RF procedure to be painful, as we use numbing cream.
After the Secret RF procedure, it is common to experience some redness or minor swelling, similar to a sunburn. We recommend patients do not wear makeup for 1-2 days after the procedure.
