Reduce Acne Scars By 70% With Microneedling Radio Frequency

22 posts in this topic

Hi There

Has anyone heard of a new acne scarring machine called Secret RF. Apparently it reduces acne scarring by around 70% (so I am told). The secret rf machine is also used for fine lines, skin tightening and pigmentation treatments.

Its been a hit in the South Asian countries and the Germans, Italians have seen good results as well. I know of a place in the UK where they are starting using this treatment. I just wanted to check if anyone has heard of this machine before I buy a course for £1,800.

Here is a link of what it does

I think I may start a treatment with this clinic in the UK, they seem quite confident of the results but they will say that because they want my money.....

I'm in my 40's and I previously had many scar removing treatments such as harsh skin peel, microdermabrasion, collagen injections, MD formulations and various creams and lotions but still not much results.

Let me know if anyone has heard of this machine as I am really tempted to buy a course of 3 treatments. If you like I could post pictures of before and after but not sure if I am allowed to do that here.

Aha! This is quite interesting, yet another new take on microneedling. Thanks for posting, I will be watching this very closely.

Nope.avi, where did you come by that information regarding scar tissue becoming compromised at certain temperatures?

Is it standard info which applies to laser-based treatments?

Kind regards

Thanks for the replies. I probaly go ahead and take up the treatment. I've spoken to the clinic owner and she said if I act as a case study She'll knock the price down. I'll update you guys if I do or do not see results.

This almost sounds too good to be true. Has anyone tried this? If it works I would love to get one.

There's also a microneedling RF machine called Intracell. I think you can find more information about that machine than this "Secret RF" (just judging by my quick google search).

I have had one Intracell treatment and the results have been positive but a course of treatments will be necessary for any "dramatic" results.

Because of the much shorter downtime and reduced risk complications I think these treatments are great however (at least Intracell). Personally my results from one Intracell treatment have been similar to results I've had from fractional laser. Fractional laser results were quite disappointing considering the long downtime... both methods require multiple treatments to get good results but microneedling RF is much less of a pain to go through.

ps. my opinion is based on Intracell.. I dont know whether the different microneedling RF machines vary much or not.. :)

I have contacted a derm and sent him photos. He suggested Fractional Micro-needle RF for my pitted skin. According to his website you can adjust the length of the needle, it can reach 3.5 mm . I thought this is basically same as dermaroller ? but combined with thermal damage to the skin to regenerate collagen.

Any ideas ?

I dont see how the RF component would add much difference than regular dermarolling.

This sounds interesting. The only thing I worry about is that when I hear 'RF' I think of Thermage which caused fat loss and scarring, so it worries me.

they dont reduce scars by 70%, they reduce scars in UP TO 70% of the people who try it.

I am from Kitchener, sort of seeking treatment. Don't know what for yet tho, lol. I woke up one morning and had holes all over my face and litle skin flakes inside the pores. I think all the antibiotics and stress and x rays and diet change and trying new skincare (microdermabrasion and salicilyc acid and Manila oil) and I ended up with seb derm or maybe rosacea? My skin is red now and flushes easy, and the redness with veins at the base of my nose at the sides is back (that disappeared years ago, I thought it was from popping pimples there all the time, but came back after antibiotics) so yea... I hate the medical community and will die fro

A simple tooth infection before I ever use modern medicine again.
