What is RF Microneedling?
The Scarlet device distributes Radio Frequency energy through an array of 25 non-insulated microneedles. As the RF signal passes through the skin, it generates an electrothermal reaction capable of coagulating the tissue at temperatures known to induce the production of collagen and elastin.
Scarlet SRF safely and effectively treats all skin types with minimal to no downtime, no incision, and is virtually painless. Scarlet SRF allows for custom treatment modes to the scalp, face, and body.
Skin Tightening while building Collagen and Elastin.
Microneedling with RF can also help with skin tightening due to the collagen and elastin stimulation. As the skin produces more of these structural proteins, it becomes tighter and firmer, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Hyperpigmentation and Reduced Inflammation
Increased collagen levels can promote skin regeneration and even out skin tone, reducing the appearance of dark spots and patches. While microneedling itself can cause mild inflammation, it is generally controlled and transient. The controlled injury can stimulate the skin’s healing response and reduce chronic inflammation associated with rosacea, potentially leading to an improvement in symptoms.
Exfoliation and Enhanced Product Absorption
The micro-injuries created by microneedling open up channels in the skin, allowing topical products to penetrate more effectively. When combined with RF, the treatment can help deliver targeted skin-lightening agents, such as vitamin C or kojic acid, deeper into the skin, aiding in the reduction of hyperpigmentation.
