Microneedling combined with Secret™ RF (radiofrequency heat) is an advanced, highly effective way to treat fine lines and wrinkles — or prevent them altogether.
Secret RF microneedling treatment details
When you arrive for your appointment for microneedling in Palo Alto, a topical numbing aesthetic will be applied to your skin, where it will stay for about 40 minutes. Once you are numbed, the topical will be removed. Dr. Hessler will then use the Secret RF handpiece to pass over each area of the face that is being treated.
With each microscopic needle punch, radiofrequency heat goes into skin. The tip of the device is insulated so that heat is only at bottom of needle. This keeps any pain very minimal. Usually two passes are done in order to adequately treat the multiple layers of skin and to trigger collagen growth everywhere. Cold air can be used during treatment to help with any discomfort.
