Micro-needling Radio Frequency

What is Micro-needling Radio Frequency?

In Micro-needling Radio Frequency (MRF), each needle acts as an electrode to emit radiofrequency. This process generates heat prompting collagen production and skin tightening. It is designed to treat acne scars, large pores, sagging skin, and stretch marks.

Scarlet RF

Scarlet RF is different from other similar devices in that the needles are non-insulated. The initial concern for non-insulated needles is the risk of superficial skin burn. However, the design of Scarlet is so intelligent that not only superficial burn does not happen, the non-insulated needles are in fact advantageous to produce positive change to the entire skin layer. The difference “inductance” of the different area of the skin allows the technology to be safely applied on skin. Our experience at Reviva has confirmed the tremendous safety of this particular device.

So what is the result you can expect from Scarlet RF?

At Reviva, where we have performed many hundred of Scarlet RF treatments, we have seen a diminishment in pore size, scar improvement, and skin brightening. However, the most pleasant effect we see is skin tightening and sharpening of the lower half of the face so the face looks more oval in shape. We have seen equal and at times even better result with Scarlet RF in skin tightening than focus ultrasound as well as no-needle RF devices. The needles ensure the energy is reliably deliver to the skin at the desired level.

Scarlet RF and the new Scarlet-S

Scarlet RF (and the new Scarlet-S) is a great tool we have at Reviva to combat the effect of skin aging, acne scar as well as general skin conditioning. This is one of the devices we have full confidence to recommend to our patients because of the safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness.
