Scarlet SRF is clinically proven to renew skin tone and texture, lift and tighten the skin, and rejuvenate the face with non-surgical treatment. The newest technology for naturally restoring the skin’s youthful glow and health uses short pulse radio frequency (SRF) to identify skin layers, enhancing overall health. This fantastic new FDA-approved treatment restores, rebuilds, and reconnects the essential components of healthy skin that is collagen and elastin.

How does Scarlet SRF Treatment Work?

Scarlet SRF is the next generation RF micro-needling, and this is a new state-of-the-art technology that combines radiofrequency and micro-needling. It can target essentially any skin issue. Scarlet increases the density of your skin to tighten, improve firmness, lift the skin on the neck and body, decreases sagging, and renews skin texture, pores, photo-aging, minimizes the appearance of scars, stretch marks. We can even treat the scalp and temples to effectively give a lift to the entire periphery of the face.

Compared to other RF devices, this treatment is more pleasant, and there is little to no downtime. Scarlet SRF allocates RF energy through 25 non-insulated micro-needles, building electrocoagulation of soft tissue and generating dermal collagen and elastin fiber in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. Patient comfort is better during these treatment sessions than any other RF micro-needling device, and downtime is minimal, with most patients praising the convenience and comfort of the entire procedure.

Why Scarlet SRF?

Scarlet SRF says they are distinct because of their use of “independent tissue coagulation” around each microneedle, allowing it to be used effectively on all skin types. Best of all is the convenience and comfort experienced with Scarlet SRF. Most patients surveyed reported slight to no pain, and Scarlet claims the quickest heating time of all radiofrequency devices currently on the market.

Unlike other micro-needling experiences, patients will have no bleeding or sensitivity. The only after-care needed is a good sunscreen to protect your skin from future damage or discoloration. Scarlet SRF proves that you can look better with a bit of technology as you age each day.

Who is a Good Candidate?

A more real question would be, “Who couldn’t benefit from Scarlet SRF microneedling?” As we age, everyone deals with sagging, scars, stretch marks that are more susceptible to the development of wrinkles, lines, and creases. The culprit is declining collagen production. Throw in sun damage, age spots, acne scarring, and other skin issues, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who couldn’t benefit from Scarlet SRF’s skin rejuvenation.

Scarlet SRF works with every skin type and doesn’t create problems with hyper-pigmentation, as many laser treatments do. Pregnant women, patients with metal implants, and active skin diseases are not candidates for Scarlet SRF.

What Happens During a Scarlet SRF Session?

To start your session, we apply topical numbing lotion and wait approximately 35 minutes for it to take effect across your treatment areas. Then we move the Scarlet SRF handpiece across the treatment area, allowing the microneedles to seep into the skin and deliver the RF energy.

How Long Does a Treatment Take?

Scarlet SRF treatments Sessions can usually take anywhere from 25-60 minutes. The time required for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area. Scarlet SRF is both time-saving and revolutionarily effective.

What to Expect with Scarlet SRF Treatment

The procedure itself feels mildly warm while it is happening. For some hours after your treatment, redness and some swelling may occur and show. The area of the skin treated may feel like you have had a slight sunburn. Patients undergoing a scalp or temple treatment will feel a little pulling or tugging sensation for a few days post-treatment.

What is the Recovery Time?

Patients can return to their usual daily activities immediately following treatment. There is minimal to no downtime with Scarlet SRF. Unlike other micro-needling therapies, there is slight to no bleeding or sensitivity.

How Long Until I See Results?

Some noticeable tightening results come immediately, and the effects of dermal remodeling or rebuilding appear over time as collagen and elastin fibers regenerate. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in one to two months.

The effects of a single treatment can last six months to a year following one treatment, depending on your general skin condition, and touch-up procedures can help maintain your appearance over time. A series of treatments is suggested to achieve the optimum and best result.

How Can I Optimize My Treatment Results?
Nutrition, diet, and other lifestyle habits affect how we age. However, everyone can benefit from a Scarlet SRF treatment to improve skin health. We all have diverse eating, drinking, stress, and sleep habits that impact and influence how our body reacts and responds to a stimulus such as a skin treatment like Scarlet SRF.

Halo Med Spa’s top recommendations to optimize your results and skin health in general include:

  • Stay hydrated! Your skin needs water for proper function.
  • Boost your vitamins required for your body to make fresh brand-new collagen, especially for the first two weeks after your treatment. Increase vitamins A, B, and C by combining more leafy greens and fruits and vegetables of various colors throughout the day.
  • Increase healthy fats like Omega 3’s.
  • We recommend eating healthy fats a couple of times per week, including nuts, chia seeds, and avocados.
  • Make Sleep your utmost priority.
  • Wear your sunblock at all times.

Can Scarlet Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Absolutely! Scarlet SRF is a beautiful stand-alone treatment to restore and revive skin health. It is very effective in tightening, and lifting the skin, reducing pore size, and regaining its vitality. However, it is also a great addition to other treatments for those wanting to maximize their results by addressing any volume loss, for instance.
