How does it work?

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver radio frequency energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in upper layer of the skin, Secret RF delivers RF energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Secret RF treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, photo-damage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars,
acne scars, skin quality and striae. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and patients seeking skin
revitalization.

Secret RF is a easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 15-minute treatment session. During the treatment, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area. For most patients, the treatment is tolerable but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Prior to the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to increase comfort during the treatment.

Patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment however results are optimized 3 months after the last treatment.

Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months.

After the treatment, an ointment will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.

Microneedling is the process of using very small needles to penetrate and reach deep layers of the skin causing your body to produce more collagen, improving skin tightness and overall skin texture.  Microneedling RF amplifies the treatment's effectiveness by introducing radiofrequency heat energy under the skin's surface, resulting in far better results each treatment.

How does it work?

Juliet provides a gentle treatment resulting in minimal downtime and a quick recovery.

Juliet Laser Skin Resurfacing is a simple day procedure that uses a powerful cosmetic laser to remove dead skin cells.

Most common skin problems are present in the first layers of dead and damaged skin and this is what laser treatment seeks to remedy.

When choosing your laser facial treatment, there are two options:

  • Light Facial Peel – This is a quick procedure that removes the top layer of skin and is perfect for remedying minor skin ailments.
  • Ablation Facial – This procedure goes much deeper, promoting vascular flow and collagen in deeper layers of your skin and is perfect for more damaged areas.

In both levels of treatment, the dead skin cells in the top layers of your face are removed. This encourages your body to begin the natural process of replacing the dead cells.

The new layer of skin is typically unaffected by the condition that existed before and will be noticeably smoother and more vibrant.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Skin Resurfacing is a simple day procedure that normally takes 30-60 minutes to complete.

Prior to the treatment your face will be cleansed, and a mild numbing cream applied to reduce feeling in the treatment area.

The results of your laser facial treatment will not be immediate, but will be well worth the wait. After your first treatment with the Juliet Laser, you will see results within 3-5 days after your treatment. You can expect full healing and the final results in around 1-3 months.

Although you may be happy after just one treatment, some cases call for multiple lighter treatments and this will be discussed with your specialist during the consultation stage. (All consultations are free!)

Some patients suffer no discomfort at all with this procedure, with the worst case being sensation like small hot pinches.

The Juliet laser treatment is mild enough for use on sensitive areas of the face that are often avoided such as the area surrounding your eyes. Unlike other beauty laser treatments, a ‘cool’ setting is available on Juliet lasers. This delivers micro pulses rather than a sustained beam, resulting in far less heat and pain.

You can resume your normal daily activities straight away!

Redness or swelling may be present up to 36 hours after the treatment, but this varies from person to person.  You should be careful to protect your skin during the healing phase, and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen if spending any time outdoors.

Wait times are excellent, and staff is amazing. I love the doctors, and the P.A. They take pride in their care. Most of the staff is friendly, and have excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend this doctor, and office. However the folks in the front could do better about greeting with patients.

Her medical practice took care of my medical needs under one roof.
