1. How does Scarlet SRF treatment work?
Scarlet SRF uses micro-needle electrodes bipolar radio frequency (RF) technology to coagulate dermal collagen and elastin fiber in skin. Electrocoagulation helps to rejuvenate existing dermal fibers and produce new collagen and elastin fibers, which improves skin tightening and texture of skin.
2. What is Scarlet SRF?
SRF is short pulse radio frequency technology. Short pulse RF technology is a revolutionary, safe skin treatment with absolutely no down time and no side effects. Developed by the researcher behind the Na Effect, Scarlet SRF is the first RF technology that uses the phenomenon of independent tissue coagulation around each micro-needle electrode with short pulses of alternating bipolar signal energy. Scarlet SRF is patented not only in America, but also in 70 other countries, in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Oceania, and South America.
3. How many treatments are required?
Scarlet SRF treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients with little to no downtime. The treatment is very comfortable and attractive to patients. More treatments delivers more results. We recommend 3 treatments per year to maximize skin rejuvenation.
4. How long does a treatment take?
The Scarlet SRF treatment takes about 20 minutes for the face and 10 minutes for the neck. The time needed for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. The Scarlet SRF treatment is both time-efficient and incredibly effective.
5. Is there any special preparation or follow-up regimen?
No. Scarlet SRF treatment doesn't need any special preparation or follow-up regimen. Basic skin care and sunscreen is enough for aftercare. Since Scarlet SRF procedure has little-to-no downtime, most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Scarlet SRF is the safest treatment in the field of RF systems, with little-to-no down time and no side effects. There is no bleeding or sensitivity as experienced with other micro-needle treatments.
6. Is there a scarlet SRF treatment for my specific skin type?
Unlike laser treatments, Scarlet SRF is safe and works on all skin types: I, II, III, IV, V and VI. Scarlet SRF coagulates total dermal layers to rejuvenate skin without any pigmentation. Scarlet SRF technology is based on electric signals, which doesn't affect skin color.
7. What does Scarlet SRF treat?
Scarlet SRF targets scalp skin tightening, face skin tightening and lifting, double chin, neck and body skin tightening. Recently, the short pulse radio frequency technology of Scarlet SRF was clinically proven to improve skin tightening, lifting, acne, and skin texture. Scarlet SRF improves common issues such as skin texture, pores, photo-aging, scars, and stretch marks.*
8. When do the results appear, and how long do they last?
Visible tightening results come immediately, and the results of dermal remodeling appear over time in the course of new collagen, elastin regeneration and vascular rejuvenation. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in 2 to 3 months. The results can last 6 months to a year following a single treatment, depending on your skin condition and aging process.
9. Is it painful?
No. Most patients report experiencing little-to-no pain. Scarlet SRF delivers energy to the skin in a time interval of less than 300 milliseconds (0.3 sec). It is the shortest heating time among all RF devices. The micro-needle electrodes are extremely thin and work with gentle pressure and optimal speed technology, developed through numerous clinical trials. Scarlet SRF presents patients with maximum results and maximum comfort.
