What is Scarlet RF?

Scarlet RF is a revolutionary short-pulse radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling skin treatment that increases the density of your skin to improve firmness, and decrease sagging and the appearance of aging. Restored essential components of younger skin are reconnected for optimized dermal health. There’s less downtime than with other treatments and they are less painful than with other devices.
Approved by the FDA as a safe and effective anti-aging therapy, Scarlet delivers RF energy beneath the superficial layer of skin through specialized microneedles. The body responds to this by stimulating the production of collagen — the skin’s main structural protein — to repair and tighten the skin.
A Scarlet scalp treatment tightens skin with the intent of treating forehead wrinkles, eyebrow drooping, crow’s feet, cheekbone and mouth sagging, smile lines, and skin around the jaw – usually only treatable with a surgical facelift


How does Scarlet RF work?

The Scarlet RF uses minimally invasive microneedling electrode technology, which coagulates the dermis directly with precisely controlled RF energy at varying treatment depths. Treatment depth, power, and mode are monitored and modified during treatment by our skilled practitioners. Overall dermal health is improved by restoring and reconnecting the essential components of healthy, youthful skin—volumetric collagen and elastin. The teardrop shape of energy below the skin is what makes this treatment so effective. Renowned doctor and scientist Jongju Na was able to find this key method for the safest and most effective RF treatment. He named this discovery the “Na effect”. The proven science behind the Na effect is what allows the Scarlet RF to deliver this unique treatment for rejuvenation of the skin and scalp.

Is Scarlet RF Better than Morpheus8?

Comparing Scarlet RF to Morpheus8 requires understanding the specific needs and goals of each individual. Both treatments are effective in skin tightening, improving skin texture, and reducing the signs of aging. Scarlet RF is known for its ability to treat a wider range of skin concerns, including active acne, acne scars, rosacea, and sun-damaged skin. Additionally, Scarlet RF is FDA-cleared for various treatments, making it a versatile option for many patients. However, the best treatment choice depends on factors such as skin type, desired results, and the recommendation of a qualified skincare professional.


How Long Do Scarlet RF Results Last?

The results of Scarlet RF treatments can last quite some time, depending on your general skin condition and at-home care. While some visible tightening results may be immediate, the full effects of dermal remodeling, including collagen and elastin regeneration, appear gradually over two to three months. To maintain optimal results, we recommend a minimum of three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with yearly maintenance treatments recommended.


Is Scarlet RF FDA Approved?

Yes, Scarlet RF is approved by the FDA as a safe and effective anti-aging therapy. The FDA clearance covers skin tightening, scalp tightening, treatment of pores, scars, and photoaging. This approval indicates that Scarlet RF has undergone rigorous testing to ensure its safety and effectiveness for the intended treatments.


How to prepare for a Scarlet RF treatment:

The Scarlet RF treatment doesn’t need any special preparation before your visit. However, this is a medical treatment, so a consultation with our medical team is required. If you are concerned about physical discomfort or anxiety with treatment, please ask about the PRO-NOX Nitrous Oxide System during your initial consultation.
Your provider may have you start on medical grade skin care products prior to your treatment to prepare your skin for best restults!

How long does a treatment take?

Scarlet RF treatments for face and neck take about 30 minutes after numbing is completed. The time needed for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. The Scarlet RF treatment is both time-efficient and revolutionarily effective. Please ask your practitioner if you are concerned about your comfort level.

How long is the post-treatment recovery / Is there any down time?

Scarlet RF is the safest treatment in the field of RF systems, with little to no downtime and no side effects. For just a few hours after your treatment, redness and a little swelling can be expected, though both should only be mild. Your face might feel warm, like you’ve had a mild sunburn. Skin care will be recommended post treatment for optimal results and you will be given plant based stem cells for even faster recovery. Avoiding sunlight and sweating for the few days after is recommended. 
For those receiving a scalp treatment, you may feel a slight pulling or tugging sensation for a few days. As with all our medical treatments, a post-treatment care sheet will be provided, along with contact information.

How long until I see results?

Some visible tightening results come immediately, and the results of dermal remodeling appear over time as collagen and elastin fibers regenerate. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in two to three months. A minimum of three sessions is recommended for optimal results, 4-6 weeks apart. The results can last quite some time, depending on your general skin condition and at home care, with yearly maintenance treatments recommended.

For best results, we recommend pairing this treatment with other skin care treatments for combination therapy and at home skincare.
