What is RF?

Radiofrequency or RF is a form of energy that dermatologists commonly use for various treatments. The team at Santa Fe Skin Institute specializes in using two different RF treatments to cosmetically alter the skin and tissues. These treatments have numerous benefits, and the gentle RF energy makes them safe and reliable. 

RF energy is the same type of energy as radio communications, television signals, and WiFi. It heats your tissues without harming or damaging your skin, reaching deep into the underlying layers to tighten and firm the tissue. Unlike laser treatments, which also use energy, there is no risk of darkening pigmented skin.

The RF treatments available at Santa Fe Skin Institute are Scarlet SRF microneedling and Agnes RF microneedling. Both treatments combine the benefits of collagen induction therapy (microneedling) with radiofrequency energy for enhanced results.

What can RF do?

Santa Fe Skin Institute uses Scarlet and Agnes RF treatments to accomplish many dermatologic goals. The treatments smooth, tighten, and firm your skin while improving specific tone and texture issues. You can use RF microneedling to target and treat:

  • Scars

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

  • Acne vulgaris

  • Large pores

  • Stretch marks

  • Facial conturing

Scarlet and Agnes RF treatments also treat sagging skin, so they improve features like jowls or a double chin. During your consultation with the team at Santa Fe Skin Institute, you can discuss your goals and expectations so they can individualize your RF treatment plan. 

How should I prepare for RF treatments?

RF microneedling treatments are extremely gentle, and they don’t require much preparation ahead of time. Still, you need to come in for a consultation with the team at Santa Fe Skin Institute to make sure RF is the right treatment option for you. The team tells you if you need to make any routine changes before your first procedure. 

As with many other skin treatments, you can prepare for RF microneedling by:

  • Avoiding sunburns and suntans

  • Avoiding alcohol the night before

  • Avoiding anti-inflammatory medications temporarily

  • Stopping the use of salicylic acid and other chemical products on the face

  • Ensuring your skin is clean and makeup-free when you arrive 

In most cases, the team at Santa Fe Skin Institute recommends 3-6 RF microneedling treatments to get the best possible results. Scarlet and Agnes RF microneedling requires minimal downtime, and you can continue with your normal routine within a day of each treatment session.
