Secret Pro by Cutera

BAY AREA LASER SKIN RESURFACING & MICRONEEDLING

Secret Pro a skin revitalization treatment utilizing two proven technologies – Radio Frequency Microneedling and Fractional C02 Laser technology and can be done combined or separately depending on your needs. These two clinically proven technologies safely and effectively treat all layers of the skin. This treatment will regenerate your skin to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid from the inside and out, improving skin quality and appearance. This treatment is great for patients with skin concerns such as scarring, acne scarring, anti-aging concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks all while enhancing your skin tone and texture.

The beauty of the Secret Pro by Cutera is that it combines the technology of Microneedling and fractional laser resurfacing to provide a better result with less downtime. This very powerful and elegant design allows you to deliver the heat deeper into the skin from the radio frequency device and the surface of the skin from the laser device. The combination treatment allows patients to recover much more quickly than with other devices.

The Secret Pro device uses the micro needles not only to build collagen but to also deliver the heat energy that normally would have been delivered by the laser which can only deliver from the surface of the skin in this case the energy is in the deeper layers of the skin and can be delivered at varying depths. The radio frequency microneedling is precise with 0.5 mm increments of depth all the way from 0.5mm to 3mm. This allows each treatment to be tailored to your individual needs and allows the skin to be treated at multiple depths. The fractional laser settings can be adjusted to varying amounts and allow for individualized treatment.

Microneedling is done in a more efficient fashion due to the design of the device, allowing you to have multiple passes at varying amounts of depth which also allow you to achieve better results with respect to collagen remodeling. Furthermore, the addition of radio frequency energy to micro-needling augments the benefits of microneedling. The addition of this heat energy results in even better results. Because the needles are being used to deliver the heat into deeper layers of the skin the carbon dioxide laser does.

What is Radio Frequency Microneedling?

Radio Frequency Microneedling uses multiple Micro needles to deliver radio frequency energy into the skin. The energy of the radio frequency penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, below the surface to allow you the best treatment results. The tiny micro needles create pinpoint injury to the skins tissue which stimulates new collagen and the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid formation for tightened and firmer skin. The Radio Frequency Energy boosts this production to allow better results. Radio Frequency Microneedling has a short downtime and is done in our office comfortably with topical numbing applied prior to your treatment. This treatment will benefit anyone with deeper wrinkles, acne scars, scars and stretch marks, and fine lines.

What is CO2 Laser Resurfacing?

Co2 laser resurfacing is an ablative laser that delivers thermal energy to resurface the top layer of the skin with microscopic beams of light creating micro wounds to improve your skin’s tone and texture. Co2 Laser Resurfacing’s downtime is tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle. Co2 Laser Treatment is best for patients who have fine lines and deeper wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, uneven skin texture.
