Secret RF MicroNeedling

One of the best features of our Secret RF dermal remodeling is that you are not subjected to any downtime. You may return to work after your acne scar removal treatment, however depending on the severity of your acne scars you may notice redness and swelling for a couple of days. Any type of make up should be avoided in the days following the acne scar removal treatment so that you give your skin the opportunity to fully heal. However if your treatment requires the use of the Enlighten III laser you will have the ability to reapply make-up directly after the procedure.

Both the Secret RF dermal remodeling and Enlighten III laser allow for fewer treatments and better results. You will notice considerable improvement after just the first treatment. Our advanced laser technology is superior over other traditional and older acne scarring treatments, such as chemical peels.

What are the Benefits of Acne Scar Removal?

Improved, even, younger, and healthier looking skin that boosts self-esteem and may reduce the need for cosmetics.  You will have little to no downtime as well as eliminate the need for fillers.

Can Acne Scars Go Away?

Our Secret RF dermal remodeling may take one to three treatments to achieve your desired acne scar removal results. There are usually obvious improvements after just the first treatment. However optimal acne scar removal results will usually take about 3 months after the last treatment.

Our Enlighten laser acne scar removal treatment will usually require about three to five treatments for optimal acne removal. This depends largely on the amount of acne scarring. Most of our patients can expect a noticeable improvement in their skin and acne scarring after just one treatment.

How Old do you Have to be for this procedure?

Our acne scar removal treatments can be performed on teenagers and older. The main issue of this treatment for younger patients is their inability to manage the pain and discomfort that may result.

Note: It is vital that the acne is under control at the time of the procedure, otherwise our treatments can not begin.

How Long Do You Have to Wait Between Treatments?

Our Secret RF dermal remodeling acne scar removal treatments are usually performed 4-6 weeks apart.

Our Enlighten laser acne scar removal treatments are usually performed about 2-4 weeks apart.

How Long do the Removal Effects Last?

Our Secret RF dermal remodeling for acne scar removal are usually long lasting, but due to continued aging of our skin, re-treatment may be necessary, at a rate of once per year.

Our Enlighten III laser treatments are also usually long lasting with re-treatment typically being necessary once per year to maintain the appearance of the skin. 

The results of both procedures are also largely based on how you treat your skin. Wearing sunscreen and other protective skin care is the best way to prolong the results of your acne scar removal treatment.

How Should You Prepare for the Procedure?

Prior to having any acne scar removal treatment, you should have a consultation with one of our board certified physicians. You will be advised on whether to chose the Enlighten laser or the Secret RF MicroNeedling procedure. 

Both of these procedures are highly effective for acne scar removal. The consultation will give the physician to identify your scarring and skin type and discuss the recommended treatment. 

Prior to your treatment, make sure that you have clean skin and are not wearing and make up or cosmetics. Any other pre-treatment instructions will be discussed prior to your acne scar removal appointment.

What To Expect During Treatments?

Before Procedure

Our Secret RF Micro needling dermal remodeling acne scar removal procedure can be an uncomfortable experience for some. It uses micro needles to penetrate the lower layer of the skin (AKA the dermis). To make your experience as comfortable as possible you have the option of requesting that we apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Keep in mind that if you want the topical anesthetic applied you have to arrive at least 30 minutes before the procedure so the numbing agent can take effect.

Please avoid wearing any kind of makeup to the procedure as we will need to cleanse the skin before the procedure and the cleaner your skin is when you arrive the better. 

During Procedure

Once your skin is cleaned the probe is placed directly on the area being treated. During the procedure you will feel pressure and heat. The probe will make contact with the skin and will feel like a rubber band snapping the skin. The length of the procedure will be dependent on the severity of your acne scarring and the amount of surface area that needs to be covered. Usually an acne scar removal treatment will last 20 minutes.

What to Expect After Treatment and Recovery?

Our Secret RF acne scar removal treatment usually leaves the skin red and swollen. This is because the treatment uses an advanced form of micro needling that permeates the lower layer of skin. The recovery from our acne scar removal treatment will usually take about two days. Some may even opt to take one to two days off from work until the symptoms subside.

We highly recommend that you avoid any type of cosmetics or make up for at least two days to allow for proper healing after an acne scar removal treatment using our Secret RF Micro needling treatment. 

If your treatment requires the use of our Enlighten laser you may experience some swelling, but this will most likely improve within a couple of hours after the procedure. Most people will chose to return directly to work and wont have to make any changes to their day-to-day routine, such as the use of make ups and cosmetics.

Are there any Side Effects from the Treatment?

The main side effect for either treatment is swelling. As discussed above the swelling is more intense after the Secret RF treatment. This treatment is often also accompanied by redness. We recommend the use of ice on the effected area to aid with the reduction of swelling and pain management.

The side effects of the Enlighten III laser are a lot more manageable and will subside in a matter of hours, whereas with the Secret RF it can take up to three days.

why does acne leave scars?

Acne is the most common skin condition in the world, with about 80% of all people being affected at some point in their lifetime, most commonly in their teenage years. Acne is a medical condition in which the oil the skin produces blocks the pores or dead skin and bacteria block the pores, resulting in an eruption on the skin, known as a pimple.

When the Dermis is damaged, scarring is the first natural response to repairing the layers of our skin. Next, the body creates new collagen fibers to fix the damage which sometimes leaves a scar.

Scars have different skin texture and quality to the surrounding skin, which is why there are different scar removal treatments. The most common types of scarring are: Acne Scars, Breast Scars, and Stretch Marks, commonly known as Growth Scars. 

Scars tend to be flat and pale but in cases where your body produces too much collagen the scars are raised. Raised scars are classified as hypertrophic or keloid scars, this occurs more often to younger people and those with a darker pigmentation. When a scar is sunken or depressed it is classified as atrophic scarring. 

Types of Acne Scarring

There are 2 main types of acne scarring: keloid and depressed scarring.

Type of Acne Scars - Hypertrophic Scar and Atrophic Scar

Keloid Scarring

Hypertrophic or keloid scarring is caused by the excess tissue or the excess production of collagen during the healing process of acne. In other words, your body is unaware that the healing process has been completed and keeps on producing collagen which leads to keloid scarring.

Depressed Scarring

Depressed scarring, also known as atrophic scarring is caused by a loss of skin tissue. This leads to the skin having a depressed or sunken appearance where there were previously pimples. There are three types of sunken acne scars: ice pick scars, boxcar scars and rolling scars

Are Acne Scars Permanent?

The positive effects of the treatment are immediate. You will notice a bright glow to your skin after just one treatment.

The glowing and smoothing effects of the facial will last about a week. 

There is no quick fix to perfect skin. So the frequency of treatment and the products that you use in your skin care regiment is the deciding factor of how long the results will last.

How to remove acne scars?

There are many different types of acne scar removal procedures. You can opt for invasive or non surgical. We always recommend non invasive procedures as it results in the least amount of trauma.

Here is a list of popular treatments:

  • Intralesional (injected) corticosteroid
  • Excision
  • Silicone gel sheetings
  • Cyrosurgery
  • Pressure earrings
  • Radiation therapy
  • Laser therapy

How much is acne scar removal?

The removal procedure starts at $750 per session. The severity, location and size of your scarring will determine how much time is required per session and how many sessions will be required.

We offer package deals, CareCredit financing and in-house financing when purchasing packages.
