The Scarlet RF System

The Scarlet RF System represents an exciting advancement in aesthetic skin treatments. This medical device combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling to achieve powerful anti-aging effects on the skin. Unlike lasers which focus energy on the skin’s surface, the Scarlet RF penetrates energy deeper thanks to tiny microneedles. These needles create microscopic channels in the dermis layer of the skin. Radiofrequency heat gets delivered through these tunnels, targeting deeper structures.

The dual impact kickstarts fresh collagen production as the body heals from the inside out. Fine lines plump up, creepiness smoothes, and sagging areas become more lifted. With regular sessions, skin progressively regains strength, tone, and elasticity for natural-looking rejuvenation without the need for surgery.
The Scarlet RF System’s non-invasive approach appeals to men and women alike who wish to refresh aged skin, improve uneven complexions, or reduce visible signs of old scars or acne.

How Scarlet RF Works

The handpiece with microscopic needle tips is gently rolled over the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, including new collagen and elastin production.
Simultaneously, Scarlet RF heat is delivered through the needle tips to deeper dermal layers. This energy kickstarts long-term collagen regeneration for tighter, firmer skin.
Dual Approach Benefits

As a non-invasive treatment suitable for all skin types, the Scarlet RF System offers considerable aesthetic benefits:

  • Refined skin texture and smaller-looking pores
  • More even tone and glow
  • Softened fine lines, wrinkles, and creepiness
  • Firmer skin along the jaws, cheeks, and neck
  • Improved appearance of acne scars
  • Tighter skin on body areas like the arms, legs, or abdomen
These various aesthetic improvements result from increased collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid within the skin thanks to treatment with the Scarlet RF System. At a cellular level, the microneedling and radiofrequency prompts skin to regenerate and remodel essential structural proteins and molecules. Collagen provides firmness and structure; elastin allows flexibility without sagging; and hyaluronic acid boosts hydration and volume. The dual approach stimulates fibroblasts and other skin cells to enhance production of these key components. As levels of collagen, elastin and HA rise in the treatment area during the healing process, this translates to tangible tissue improvements patients can see and feel – smoother texture, brighter tone and tighter contours.

Treatment Areas

The Scarlet RF System can improve signs of aging on the face as well as firm skin on larger body areas

FACE

  • Overall complexion
  • Under eyes, lips
  • Forehead, crows feet
  • Cheeks, neck, décolletage

NECK

  • Horizontal neck lines
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Chest and décolletage

BODY

  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Inner/outer thighs and knees
  • Upper arms and elbows

Stretch Marks

The Scarlet RF device can improve the look of stretch marks over time by thickening the dermis layer of skin and strengthening connective fibers. For red or purple colored marks, results are typically more noticeable.

As the dermis regenerates at a cellular level, stretch marks appear elevated and smoother. Their depressed, uneven texture is filled and leveled out by new collagen. Their visible width and discoloration also diminish over a series of treatments.

Treatment Protocol

A complete Scarlet RF microneedling facial session takes 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the customized protocol. Body treatment times vary based on the body surface area being treated, typically ranging from 30-60 minutes per session.

There is no required downtime with the Scarlet RF treatments. Some residual redness, swelling, or tenderness may occur initially but generally resolves within a few days. Most patients feel comfortable enough to resume regular activities immediately.

To achieve noticeable improvements in texture, firmness, and tone, a series of 4-6 weekly sessions is recommended initially. Afterward, maintenance treatments every 6-12 months help sustain aesthetic results long-term.

Scarlet RF Microneedling Comparison

Scarlet RF microneedling is a gentler alternative to laser resurfacing for those seeking moderate skin improvements only. It stimulates collagen and skin renewing benefits with less intensive treatment and recovery protocols.

However, laser remains the gold standard for severely damaged skin. It can provide a more dramatic reduction in fine lines, deep scars, or wrinkles that the Scarlet RF approach may not fully address alone.

How long do the results last?

Most patients enjoy visible improvements for 1-2 years following a treatment series. Your provider will determine an appropriate maintenance schedule, typically every 6-12 months, to uphold your youthful glow. RF microneedling transforms skin gradually; the longer you maintain results, the better your skin will continue looking.

Does Scarlet RF microneedling firm and tighten skin?

Absolutely! Scarlet RF microneedling stimulates 30-50% greater collagen production compared to needling alone for noticeably firmer skin. The increased collagen plumps up fine lines, lifts lax areas along the jaws and neck and smoothes wrinkles for a tightened appearance overall.

When are results visible?

Some patients notice positive changes right after the first 1-2 sessions. However, the bulk of skin improvements emerge progressively over the 2-4 months following a complete treatment series as collagen regenerates. Optimal results are achieved with patience as your body rebuilds new collagen.

Is Scarlet RF microneedling less painful than other options?

Yes, Scarlet RF microneedling is one of the most comfortable rejuvenation treatments available. Our certified providers finely adjust device settings to ensure maximal results with minimal discomfort. Any minor sensation felt during treatment is temporary. Our numbing cream also helps any pinpricks feel like faint vibrations only. Avoid laser resurfacing if you wish to avoid intense pain!
