Does your face look splotchy because of reddish or dark spots? Too much sun exposure is a likely culprit if you have dark patches of skin on your face or neck.
On the other hand, if you had teenage acne, you could have developed post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which turns your skin darker in the area where your scars are. You may not have been aware that a medication you take could cause skin discoloration.
If your complexion is marred by hyperpigmentation, you’re likely looking for solutions.
At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, our trained aesthetics team under the direction of board-certified physician Kenneth Thompson, MD, can smooth out your uneven skin tone with Scarlet SRF microneedling.
Scarlet SRF microneedling is the next generation version of skin resurfacing, using radiofrequency (RF) energy. The system uses 25 tiny microneedles that send RF energy deep into your skin.
There are significant benefits to Scarlet SRF. Unlike some other aesthetic procedures, it’s safe for all types and tones of skin. Its advanced technology using radiofrequency energy allows us to even out your skin tone in delicate areas around your eyes and mouth, in places where traditional microneedling isn’t used.
We start by putting a numbing cream on the target area and giving it time to take effect. Once it’s been absorbed, you wash your face. Then the treatment begins.
We move the Scarlet RSF microneedling wand over your skin. The radiofrequency signal moves deep into your skin’s underlayers, where it triggers production of new collagen and elastin.
Yes. It’s versatile. This innovative microneedling treatment works on your neck, hands, or other areas of your body, although its most frequent application is on the face.
Not long. The procedure only lasts about 20 minutes if we’re treating your face and only about 10 minutes for your neck. Its rapid pulse technology can deliver a quick appointment.
You’ll have some swelling and redness right after the treatment, but it subsides. There’s very little downtime.
If you’ve had any problems with skin elasticity, you’ll notice firmer skin soon after the treatment. Skin remodeling occurs over 8-12 weeks as new skin cells with fresh collagen and elastin proliferate and give you an even toned complexion.
Your results are unique to you, although one treatment often has staying power for six months to a year. We let you know how many sessions we recommend based on the condition of your skin.
