SCARLET RF

How Does Scarlet RF Microneedling Work?

Scarlet RF Microneedling delivers short pulses of radiofrequency energy to the subdermal tissue via tiny channels created by the tech’s microneedling effects. This triggers two responses:

  1. The body immediately triggers its wound-healing processes, which means collagen and elastin levels are elevated; and
  2. The radiofrequency heat causes subdermal tissue to contract and tighten, leading to almost-immediate results.

The Scarlet RF Microneedling treatment can be used on multiple areas, including the scalp for an effect that’s similar to getting facelift surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Scarlet RF Microneedling?

You’re a good candidate for Scarlet RF Microneedling if you’re nervous about undergoing facelift surgery, but you still want to tighten and improve the appearance of sagging skin along the face, neck, and body.

Take the First Step

Schedule a consultation at Epidavros Day Spa and Salon to experience the power of Scarlet RF Microneedling technology for yourself. To learn more about this treatment, take that first step and call Epidavros Day Spa @ 914-244-4422 or email us at info@epidavrosdayspa.com.

What is the Procedure Like?

The procedure takes about 20 minutes to perform (if you’re getting the treatment on your body, the procedure will take longer, depending on the area you wish to target). No numbing cream is needed, as the treatment is painless. We usually recommend getting at least three treatments to see your ideal results.

What Results Can I Expect?*

Results include tighter and toned skin, with improved texture and laxity. They can be seen almost right away, with continuous improvement over the next two to three months.

These results can last for up to a year Epidavros Day Spa  offers a selection of SkinCeutical products that can be beneficial to your Scarlet RF Microneedling treatment. From Fusion Physical UV Defense SPF 50 Sunscreen, Hydrating B5 Gel, and the Epidermal Repair, our trained medical staff can help recommend products that will help prolong your results.

Is There Any Downtime?

There’s no downtime associated with Scarlet RF Microneedling, so you can continue with your normal routine. However, we do recommend that patients incorporate sunscreen into their daily post-treatment skincare routine, as skin will be sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.

Eclipse MicroPen®

With the MicroPen® Elite, physicians have a tool that can fit in their pocket and safely treat several skin conditions related to aging.  Using a sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points, the MicroPen® Elite punctures the top layer of skin to boost collagen production.

The Elite improves the appearance of age spots, black heads, and hyper-pigmentation, as well as exfoliates the skin for a softer, smoother texture.

Combination Therapies

As PRP has gained popularity, there has been increased interest in its use to amplify the effects of micro-needling.  By using PRP as a combination treatment with the Eclipse MicroPen®, patients are seeing exceptional results and reduced downtime, leading to exceeding expectations.

PRP Therapy stimulates your own collagen production and cell migration to eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles. You will see an improvement in texture, fine lines and a distinct vibrant glow in your skin. PRP Therapy can also be used for hair restoration and growth.

PRP Therapy: What to Expect

Preparation

The patient should ensure that the doctor is aware of any prescriptions and over-the-counter medications the patient is using.

It is especially important to follow the doctor’s instructions regarding medications that prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen or blood thinners. The patient should not take aspirin unless a doctor has prescribed it, but acetaminophen is fine for a headache.

When PRP is used to treat hair loss, the patient should wash their hair the day of treatment, and not use any products on the hair. A clean hat should be brought to the appointment and worn after the procedure to protect the area.

Because PRP therapy involves drawing blood, it is important for the patient to eat a meal before the procedure to avoid light-headedness.

The Procedure

First, the doctor draws blood from the patient’s arm and then separates the PRP from the rest of the blood’s components.

After injecting lidocaine to numb the treatment area, the doctor carefully injects the PRP into multiple places under the skin. The platelets break down and release their growth factors, which trigger the natural processes of cell proliferation and tissue renewal.

The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

After PRP Treatment

The patient should avoid washing the treatment area for 48 hours. After that, it is all right to use hair and skin care products and continue with topical medications.

The treatment area may be sore for two or three days, and the patient may notice some bruising. Acetaminophen can help ease discomfort. In case of severe pain, the patient should notify the doctor’s office right away.

Hair dye or coloring treatments can resume one week after PRP treatment.

The effect of treatment is most noticeable after at least six months. Repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain the improvement in hair growth and texture.

PRP Therapy, Hair Loss and Hair Transplants

PRP therapy is becoming a popular complement to hair transplants. PRP can help accelerate the growth of transplanted hair roots while also thickening existing hair.

Recent studies have suggested that applying PRP to the scalp can address androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Complex baldness problems may require getting once-a-month PRP treatments for four to six months.

For all patients addressing hair loss, consistent treatment with PRP therapy yields optimal results.
