Our most advanced treatment – it combines both RF microneedling and CO2 laser technologies in the same session. This revolutionary treatment provides intense comprehensive skin renewal.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the Secret PRO Revive Treatment?

The Secret PRO Revive treatment combines CO2 laser energy with radio frequency microneedling to treat an incredible range of skin concerns all at once. While CO2 laser technology targets the outermost layers of the skin, the RF energy reaches into the deeper dermal layers. With the unique combination of these two technologies, your treatment can be customized to maximize the results of your specific aesthetic needs.

What conditions does it treat?

The combination of two technologies gives the Secret PRO Revive treatment the power to treat a wide range of conditions simultaneously. While the fractional RF microneedling penetrates deeper in the skin, the fractional CO2 laser resurfaces the top layers of the skin to improve the skin’s tone and texture. This combination treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, skin texture, pore size, creepy skin, and sun-damaged skin.

What is the treatment like?

Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied and/or a prescribed medication will be provided to ensure comfort during the entire procedure. The treatment will begin with multiple passes of the RF microneedling that may feel like slight pressure and tingling while the micro-sized needles gently penetrate the skin. Next, your provider will gently stamp the CO2 laser over the same treatment area to create thousands of microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This combination procedure will maximize the stimulation of your body’s natural creation of new collagen. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 30-45 minutes.

Is there downtime after the treatment?

The amount of downtime depends on the skin conditions being treated. Superficial procedures will only require a few days to heal, while deeper treatments may require a week. Your provider will discuss the needed healing time before the treatment.
