What is Scarlet SRF and why do you want it?
For good reason, Scarlet SRF (short pulse radio frequency) is among our most sought-after treatments. This treatment combines the power of microneedling with radio frequency. The inclusion of radio frequency significantly enhances skin stimulation, prompting the body to produce more elastin and collagen. As we age, the reduced production of these proteins adversely affects our skin.
The Scarlet SRF is an exceptional skin rejuvenation treatment due to its versatility and myriad benefits. It effectively treats acne scars, shrinks pores, tightens skin, improves skin tone, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it can treat active acne, a capability not present with regular microneedling.
A standout feature of this treatment is its ability to treat both the upper and lower eyelids, right up to the lash line. Few devices offer this capability. Importantly, we know that devices like lasers can’t be used close to the eyes as they could damage the eye itself.
Does it hurt?
Before the treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your skin is comfortable. Most clients find the procedure painless with just the numbing. However, if there’s any discomfort, we also offer laughing gas (pronox) as an option.
How many treatments do I need?
We recommend three treatments, spaced 1-3 months apart, with a maintenance treatment recommended annually.
What is the recovery time after the treatment?
Recovery is swift, with redness and mild swelling lasting about 24 hours. A high-quality medical-grade concealer, such as Colorescience, can be applied immediately after the treatment. Within two to three days, the skin may exhibit a slightly rough texture due to the microchannels scabbing over. Gently cleansing with a mild cleanser will help until these naturally heal.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any body area can be treated, including skin laxity on the arms, knees, thighs, neck, décolletage, and tummy. We also offer treatments for the scalp to stimulate hair growth. Stay tuned for more details in an upcoming blog post.
