Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening with Secret RF is a revolutionary esthetics treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to smooth, brighten, and rejuvenate your skin in a few short sessions. Secret RF addresses both the surface and deeper skin layers for maximum revitalization with minimal recovery time.


How does skin tightening work?

Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in your skin, stimulating tissue healing and cellular renewal. Radiofrequency energy also promotes tissue renewal by heating your skin’s cells to encourage the production of new collagen. 

By increasing circulation, rebuilding cellular structure, and enhancing cell turnover, Secret RF leaves your skin looking more radiant and youthful without surgery or downtime.  


Am I a good candidate for skin tightening with Secret RF?

Secret RF is customized to meet the individual goals of each patient. Elite Women's Care uses Secret RF to safely and effectively treat all skin types. You may be a good candidate if you struggle with lax skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and general signs of aging. 


What should I expect during my skin tightening treatment?

During your skin tightening treatment, you recline comfortably while your provider applies a topical numbing cream to the target area. They then use a special handpiece to apply the microneedling radiofrequency to your skin. Throughout the treatment, you can expect to feel some heat and pressure, but most people find these sensations tolerable.

Treatments typically take about 20 minutes. You may have some mild swelling after your Secret RF procedure, but this usually subsides within 24 hours. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after their appointment.


How many treatments will I need?

How many Secret RF treatments are necessary to achieve the skin tightening results you seek depends on your personal goals and other individual factors. During your initial consultation, your provider discusses your skin goals with you in detail. They then design a treatment plan based on your needs.

You may notice improvements after your first skin tightening. Most often, however, a series of at least three treatments is needed for optimal results.

If wrinkles or lax skin have you feeling less than confident about your appearance, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation. Call Elite Women's Care today or make an appointment online.
