Scarlet is the name of a radiofrequency microneedling device that Genesis offers to our clients. Scarlet RF combines two incredibly successful dermal anti-aging therapies – radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling – to result in smoother more rejuvenated skin. Microneedling is the process of creating micro-channels of trauma in the skin, which stimulate collagen and elastin production. This results in softer, smoother skin. When radiofrequency energy is added to the treatment, it has been described as “microneedling on steroids” because the results are often so much more dramatic than with either treatment by itself.
This combination of modalities is a phenomenal anti-aging treatment because it helps to improve everything about our skin. This includes softening the skin, reducing pore size, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening the skin and reducing brown spots. Acne scars can also usually be improved and minimized with the Scarlet. Both light and dark skin can be treated with the Scarlet, making this a truly perfect treatment for anybody.
A series of three treatments about a month apart is recommended for best results. Patients look sunburned for 4-5 days after each treatment, but can apply sunscreen and make-up after 12 hours. Therefore, while you may not look your best for several days, this is not a treatment for which you have to go into hiding or take time off work. Full results are seen about 8 weeks after your final treatment. Most patients choose to maintain the effects with 1-2 treatments every 12 – 18 months after they have the original three.
If you are needing some overall skin rejuvenation without significant downtime, the Scarlet could be the perfect option for you. Call us today or schedule a free consultation to learn more!
