Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into multiple level of the skin, including deep layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only treat the surface of the skin, Secret RF transports energy deeply in the skin where it’s most effective to stimulate collagen, revitalize and regenerate tissue, and address the common signs of aging. You will feel some heat and pressure in the treatment area during the process and a numbing cream will applied in advance for increased comfort.

The unique energy delivery method of Secret RF permits optimal results on all skin types with little to no downtime.

How long is the treatment session?

Secret RF is an easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 20-minute session.

How many treatments will I need?

To achieve optimum results, 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, are typical, with most people reporting visible improvements after the second treatment. Maximum results appear about 3 months after the last treatment. Length of treatment results vary based on the individual and maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 to 18 months.

Winter Weather Tips

Cold weather equals dry skin and hair. The extreme cold in Anchorage and many other parts of Alaska also comes with low humidity. Homes, offices, schools and shopping malls are dry. When inside or outside air is dry, your skin and hair also get dry.

  • Put a humidifier in your home or bedroom and keep the humidity level at 40%.
  • Shower for less than 10 minutes, using warm not hot water as hot water causes more dryness.
  • Avoid hot tubs as they also dry out skin.
  • Use soap or body wash only on areas that sweat or have hair.
  • Moisturize all over within 3 minutes of finishing a shower or bath with a good quality moisturizer. Stop by the Center and take a look at the many options available.
