Secret RF Microneedling
MIVAS at Venous Institute is proud to offer Secret RF, a new microneedling treatment that improves signs of aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and scars with little to no downtime. Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results on all skin types. Secret RF is an easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a quick, 20-minute treatment session. To achieve the optimal effect, 3-4 Secret RF treatments are recommended. You’ll start to notice results after your second treatment, but optimal results appear 3 months after the last treatment. Your Secret RF treatment consultant can provide all the details you need to make an informed decision about the procedure.
