You can get RF microneedling every 3 months. In fact, some doctors pressure you to get it every 6 weeks. But since it takes up to 3 months for full collagen stimulation, treatments should be scheduled 3 months apart.

Every two weeks is too close together. Listen to Serius Lee, seriously. You need to let your body heal a little more. When I got Infini done, my doctor told me every month was fine but at least that's double the time of your recovery period. Being a cynic, I think doctors say to do this every month because they can get you to pay quicker than you can think. 

Personally, I think two months is good enough but Serius Lee has more experience than I do.

Ok perfect, will take that advice. Would ye think it is ok to get it done in conjunction with a peel on the same time? not an aggressive peel , a milder peel ??

 

And also , I cant decide whether to get Scarlet RF microneedling done or Morpheus8 RF ?? Anyone advise which machine is better ??

Is Infini/Genius the "best" RF because of it's superior results in comparison to other RFs on the market or because it's endorsed and marketed by derms and plastics like Lim and Weinstein? Personally, I'm not sold on the idea that Infini/Genius is the best. Sure, it comes with insulated tips and more robust settings. But that depends more or less on the knowledge of the operator. In the hands of those who mostly rely on the standard settings, it might be no different from other RFs. Second, granted that it comes with bells and whistles, does it justify the ridiculously high cost? Infini/Genius costs nearly twice as much as others, if not more. Does that mean it will yield better results than others?

I don't know if Infini/Genius is the best RF device on the market, but I can already tell it's the best device I've tried for my scars and I've tried some already.

So glad to read this! I wish you speedy recovery and continued improvement. What scars would you say improved the most? Do you know / have you asked Dr Emil which is better - treatment at 3 month's interval or at 6 month's interval?

Rolling scars had biggest improvement , icepicks didnt improve but Thats expected , icepicks will only improve with cross technique i think , i have only 2-3 of em they Dont bother me that much , i think i ll ask About em next time. My experience was , that best improvement i saw was after 4 months , 5 th month was the best , i could see improv almost every day , so probably i Go back In january if covid will let me Lol

Do that! Lol.

Funny that I see immediate improvement. There's definite tightening and the scars aside my skin has never felt softer and nicer and the scars look flatter. So far i'm very happy with the GenRF. I can hardly wait to have a second treatment as well lol but don't know when this will happen. 

Btw, I also have some ice-picks but Dr Emil said the Genius should take care of them so I'll trust him on that. *thumbs up*
