Overview

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that has been popular with Kelowna and Okanagan Valley patients for years. Safe and efficient, it’s renowned for its ability to treat any skin type comfortably, and with minimal downtime. Now, we’re taking microneedling to the next level with Scarlet Fractional Microneedle RF, a device that combines the efficacy of microneedling with the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to treat wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin texture and tone, and even scarring.

How it Works

The Scarlet Fractional Microneedle RF handpiece uses ultra-fine needles to painlessly create tiny perforations in the skin at a depth chosen based on the area and condition being treated. Within the skin, each of these needles also acts as an electrode to deliver RF energy directly into the dermis to generate heat and warm tissues. This process stimulates wound healing and promotes the production of new collagen and elastin for noticeable improvements in the skin’s appearance. The result is smoother, tighter, more radiant skin.

Recovery & Results

The length of your microneedling treatment with Scarlet Fractional Microneedle RF varies based on the treatment area, but typically takes less than an hour. Following treatment some mild redness and swelling similar to a sunburn may be present. Patients can anticipate this to dissipate within 24 hours, and can return to their regular activities in the meantime. Results will continue to improve over the next three to four weeks as new collagen is formed. The number of treatments required will be different for each patient, but regular maintenance treatments may be recommended for best results.
