Have you been a sun worshipper? The sun is beneficial in many ways, but one of the down sides is that it causes skin damage. That’s why you might see dark spots on your face and other areas of your body.
At A Beautiful You Medical Spa in Memphis, Tennessee, our medical director, Dr. Kenneth Thompson, has selected the Scarlet SRF microneedling system as the most advanced method of treating age spots and other skin imperfections.
Scarlet SRF (radiofrequency) microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. It doesn’t require the recovery time of a chemical peel or dermabrasion.
What’s a Scarlet SRF microneedling session like?
During Scarlet SRF microneedling, we start by gently cleaning your skin with a sterile solution. Then you receive a topical anesthetic on the treatment area to numb your skin so you don’t feel any discomfort.
The Scarlet SRF system moves radiofrequency energy through 25 tiny needles that create microscopic wounds in your skin. The wave energy heats the underlying tissue. This process stimulates new collagen and elastin, key proteins in the production of new, healthy skin cells.
What makes this microneedling system different from others?
Scarlet SRF microneedling has two important advantages: It’s quicker and more comfortable than traditional microneedling systems. We need to make just one pass over your skin to create results.
The system’s technology includes a next-generation robotic motor and a patented delivery system that set it apart from other systems.
How long does this microneedling treatment take?
This form of microneedling is quick and easy. Facial treatments only take about 20 minutes, while a neck treatment takes about 10 minutes.
How soon will I see results?
Scarlet SRF microneedling treats a number of skin imperfections. You’ll see firmer skin right away. The treatment stimulates the growth of new skin cells while your body sloughs off old, dead cells.
You may see changes in your hyperpigmentation within two to three months. Results last anywhere between six months and a year.
We let you know how many SRF microneedling appointments you may need to achieve your goals.
Does Scarlet SRF work on all skin types?
Yes. This patented procedure works well for all skin types, from pale skin to very dark brown or black skin. Other aesthetic treatments don’t always work for every type of skin.
What is the immediate effect on my skin?
Your skin may be red and you might have some swelling just after the procedure, but these side effects diminish in a few hours. The feeling is akin to a mild sunburn.
Do I need recovery time?
Unless you’re scheduled to be in front of the public right after the procedure, there isn’t any downtime. You won’t have the extensive sensitivity that occurs with other microneedling procedures.
