SECRET® - Radio Frequency Micro Needling

Micro-needle Fractional RF System

Advanced Anti-aging RF Technology

SECRET RF is the ideal platform for scar revision, skin tightening and rejuvenation by utilising minimally invasive micro-needles to deliver controlled RF energy with both INSULATED and NON-INSULATED micro needles directly into various depths of the skin.


  • The Secret Micro-Needle Fractional RF System is the ideal technology for skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation by utilising minimally invasive micro-needles to deliver controlled RF energy directly into various depths of the skin.
  • It has had outstanding success for all skin types with very low risk of side effects and PIH – a key difference when compared to optical based treatments (IPL & Laser).
  • The depth of penetration of the micro-needles can be adjusted from 0.5 to 3.5mm based on treatment target areas with outstanding end results such as skin lifting, pore-size reduction, tightening and overall rejuvenation.
  • Indicated for various conditions like hyperpigmentation, deep and shallow wrinkles, acne and acne scars.
  • The RF energy is delivered through the focused tip of the micro-needles, leading to far-less trauma to the surrounding epidermis. This leads to significantly decreased discomfort and down time for the patient compared to conventional fractional lasers.
  • Non-insulated micro-needles are more effective and takes care of both epidermal and dermal problems without the need for additional superficial fractional RF treatments (SFRs).
  • Various type of disposable tip cartridges are available depending on specific cases:
    • Non-insulated single row 10 needles cartridges for stretch mark
    • Insulated single row 6 needles cartridges for hyperhidrosis (that require to coagulate in the dermis / subcutaneous tissues with minimum of down time)
  • The precisely arranged micro-needles (25/10 per head) emit RF energy in finite areas without overlap, so that the coagulated thermal zones are uniform within the treatment area.
  • High energy can be applied to the target tissue without any risk of energy interference caused by overlapping of RF energy in the close distance.

The SECRET will flash a red light once RF energy is emitted. This light will automatically come on at each operational step to ensure that practitioners are aware that RF energy is being delivered.

  • In addition, each disposable sterilised tip has an automatic sensing function which records and provides a signal when it is time to replace (after 1,000 shots) in order to prevent diminished effect by continued usage in single sessions requiring more than 1,000 shots (very rare).

How long does a SECRET treatment take?

The topical anesthetic cream requires 20 to 30 minutes to take effect prior to treatment, and then the treatment takes 20 to 30 minutes, including aftercare. So, each session requires approximately 1 hour. The SECRETRF tips are single use.

How does the treatment feel?

Especially with the correct application of a good topical anaesthetic, the treatment is highly tolerable.

How long is recovery after SECRET treatment?

You may experience transient erythema on the treated areas for 3-4 hours initially. The downtime involved with SECRETRF treatments are significantly reduced due to it targeting the deeper layers of the skin.

The typical interval between sessions is once every 3-4 weeks. Most patients see excellent results following 2-4 treatments. This may vary according to your skin condition and your physician will be better able to assess and advise you of this.
