Laser and radiofrequency skin treatments are non-surgical methods for improving the quality of the skin – specifically skin texture, tone and elasticity. Most people feel that these treatments are virtually painless, producing a sensation of heat, but not much else.
Patients may notice a warm sensation and a pricking or scraping feeling during this treatment, but it is not typically painful. Following Secret RF microneedling, it is normal to have some level of redness, swelling, irritation, and mild discomfort, but these symptoms usually resolve quickly on their own.
The process can take approximately 30 to 90 minutes, depending on how much skin you are having treated. The treatment will leave you with minimal discomfort. You may see these treatments called by the brand names Thermi, Exilis, Profound RF, and Thermage, among others.
