Secret Pro treatment CO2 fractional ablation and radiofrequency microneedling

Secret Pro

Targets a full spectrum of skin ageing concerns

What is Secret Pro treatment?

Secret Pro treatment is a revolutionary approach to skin revitalisation that integrates two clinically proven technologies within a single device. This innovative treatment combines CO2 laser energy for skin resurfacing with radiofrequency microneedling for deep dermal remodelling, offering comprehensive solutions for a wide range of skin ageing concerns. From fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and uneven skin texture, Secret PRO addresses various skin issues effectively, catering to patients of all ages and skin types.

How long does Secret Pro take to work?

The Secret Pro treatment can produce remarkable results after just one session, thanks to its combination of CO2 laser energy and radiofrequency microneedling. However, the timeline for noticeable improvements varies depending on individual skin concerns. Some may see immediate results, while others experience gradual progress over days, weeks and months as the skin rejuvenates and new collagen is formed.  Secret PRO consistently delivers smoother, firmer, and more youthful glowing skin. 

Secret Pro can treat the following concerns:

  • Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Scars including surgical scars and deliberate self-harm scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Crepey skin
  • Sun-damaged skin

CO2 Fractional Ablation

CO2 Fractional Ablation is a key component of the Secret Pro treatment. This feature utilises a high-powered fractional CO2 laser to deliver stable energy in short pulses, creating an ablative thermal effect that precisely resurfaces the skin. By targeting the epidermis with precision and control, the CO2 laser removes aged and damaged skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process. As the skin undergoes rejuvenation, new, healthy cells replace the old ones, resulting in potentially dramatic improvements in just one session. Additionally, the thermal effect of the laser promotes collagen contraction and production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Another integral aspect of Secret Pro treatment is Radiofrequency Microneedling, which complements CO2 Fractional Ablation by addressing the deeper layers of the skin. This technique involves the use of multiple fine needles to create micro punctures or channels in the skin, combined with radiofrequency waves. The microneedles penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen. This process promotes skin renewal and improves texture, providing a deeper level of rejuvenation compared to CO2 laser resurfacing alone. By reaching multiple depths within the skin, radiofrequency microneedling enhances the overall efficacy of Secret Pro treatment, delivering comprehensive results that address surface-level concerns and deeper skin issues.

Treatment Elevation

One of the key advantages of Secret Pro treatment is its versatility and customizability. The dynamic duo of CO2 Fractional Ablation and Radiofrequency Microneedling allows us to tailor the treatment to each patient's specific needs and preferences. Whether targeting fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, or sun-damaged skin, Secret Pro offers a range of treatment options to address diverse skin concerns. 

Moreover, Secret Pro treatment can be combined with other therapies to further enhance results and expedite the healing process. For instance, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy can be integrated into the treatment protocol to promote tissue healing  and collagen production. By harnessing the body's natural healing mechanisms, PRP therapy complements the effects of Secret Pro treatment, leading to accelerated recovery and improved outcomes for patients.

What is the downtime for Secret Pro treatment?

Typically, there are 2-3 days of downtime following radiofrequency microneedling, with most patients initially experiencing moderate redness and sensitivity that subsides within a few hours and evidence of the tiny microneedle puncture sites on the skin’s surface for a few days. CO2 laser treatments may require more downtime, typically 5-10 days depending on the intensity of the treatment and the skin's healing properties. During this time, the skin becomes red, swollen, and may develop scabs and peel, revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin underneath. To facilitate the healing process and protect the skin, patients are advised to limit sun exposure on treated areas. 

Essential aftercare advice

Patients are also given their complete post-procedure skincare routine following the treatment for the first 4 days and avoid actives for 2 weeks.  and are to avoid their own skincare, including skin actives and makeup. It's important to limit sun exposure and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen, especially on treated areas. For CO2 laser treatments, skin may scab and peel over 5-7 days, so it's crucial to follow proper aftercare instructions provided by the healthcare professional.

Overall, Secret Pro treatment represents a groundbreaking approach to skin rejuvenation, offering a unique combination of CO2 laser energy and radiofrequency microneedling to address a wide range of skin concerns. With its customisable options, versatile applications, and potential for dramatic results, Secret Pro provides patients with an effective solution for achieving smoother, tighter, and more youthful glowing skin.
