What is Cutera Secret RF?
Cutera Secret RF (radio frequency) is a microneedling device that is used to rejuvenate, rebuild, and firm the skin tissue via delivery of controlled heat into the deeper layers of the skin. This non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment can dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, traumatic scars, and other signs of skin aging, resulting in radiant, healthier, refreshed appearance.
How does Cutera Secret RF Work?
Cutera Secret RF emits precise high energy radio frequency waves through its microneedles to target areas of skin imperfections. The radio frequency energy passes through the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates skin cell renewal while preventing heat injury and overtreatment. This in turn causes skin regeneration via increased collagen and elastin production, revealing a smoother, younger-looking skin.
What Conditions can Cutera Secret RF Treat?
By boosting collagen and elastin production, Cutera Secret RF can treat a myriad of skin conditions such as the following:
- Acne scars
- Chicken pox and traumatic scars
- Facial wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Irregular skin texture and tone
- Large, visible pores
- Loose skin around the eyes and mouth
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Stretch marks
What is the Recovery after a Cutera Secret RF Treatment Like?
After the procedure, redness and swelling can be present in the treated area. This is a desired clinical endpoint as the microinjuries heal and skin renewal takes place. After a few days, redness and swelling will resolve and the results of the treatment will be visible, with maximum results seen at 3 months.
Is it Safe for all Skin Types?
Unlike other skin rejuvenation procedures, Cutera Secret RF is safe and effective for all skin types.
