ScarLet – the hottest treatment on the market and is a new technology that delivers fractional radio-frequency (RF) directly into the dermis through micro-needle electrodes. It is used to stimulate collagen formation in order to improve saggy skin, wrinkles, acne scars, large pores and stretchmarks. Minimal downtime and no pain as well as great safety profile make this treatment very popular among patients with all skin types.
Which Skin conditions can be treated with ScarLet?
- Sagginess of the face, neck and eyelids
- Acne scars
- Large pores
What kind of results can I expect?
The results vary between individuals, but most patients report improvement in the skin texture within several days. As it takes some time for your body to produce collagen, the tightening effect and final results are going to appear gradually over six months.
During and After Procedure
The procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes on the face, more on the rest of the body. A topical anesthetic is applied to ensure comfort. When activated, the Fractional Microneedle RF hand piece drives a set of ultra fine needles painlessly into the skin — the depth is preset by the physician according to the area and condition treated.
Within the skin, each needle acts as an electrode to emit RF energy throughout the dermis, generating heat. The heat causes tightening and collagen production.
Post-treatment, you might see temporary redness and/or mild swelling. This usually lasts only a few hours. You may resume normal activities within hours.
Aftercare is straightforward and consists of a simple moisturizer and sunscreen. You can resume using retinoid or fruit acid products in 5 to 7 days. As always, avoid sunlight.
No serious side effects have been reported for Fractional Microneedle RF. You do not need to take time off work (but feel free!).
We recommend a series of 3 monthly treatments for optimal results. For more serious skin conditions, you may need additional treatments. We advise waiting three months before undergoing the next treatment. This allows your body time to produce collagen for skin tightening.
