What Is Scarlet SRF?

Scarlet SRF is an advanced radiofrequency microneedling device. SRF refers to “short-pulse radiofrequency,” the technology that makes this one of the safest and most effective systems for nonsurgical skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Traditional microneedling creates punctures in the skin with tiny needles. These small, controlled “injuries” trigger the skin’s natural healing process and stimulate collagen production. The skin regenerating itself leads to increased tightness and firmness and various improvements in superficial appearance.

The addition of radiofrequency intensifies the microneedling process. By adding RF energy, the treatment triggers even more collagen growth and causes the subdermal tissues to contract and tighten. The microneedles allow the RF energy to reach precise depths within the skin, where it has the most potent effect on collagen production. The depth range can be customized to produce the best results for each individual patient.

The powerful treatment combo of microneedling and radiofrequency can achieve impactful results for patients who are not interested in or are not candidates for surgical lifting procedures.

How Does Scarlet SRF Work?

Why is Scarlet SRF the next-gen radiofrequency microneedling device? The answer is the “Na Effect,” a patented method of RF energy distribution discovered by Dr. Jongju Na. Scarlet SRF’s microneedles are designed so that RF energy travels through the path of least resistance. The energy exits first at the needle tip, and then moves up to create a teardrop shape. This focused energy treats the tissue within a precise area surrounding each microneedle electrode. This is an improvement on other RF systems, which apply energy in a more widespread area, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment. The Na Effect allows Scarlet SRF to utilize RF energy to its full potential. The treatment is more consistent, more comfortable, and faster than other RF microneedling devices. It has also minimized traditional complications while improving the results of the treatment. The proven science behind the Na Effect allows us to deliver state-of-the-art care for people of all skin types with this device.

Who Is a Candidate for Scarlet SRF?

Unlike many laser and light-based treatments, Scarlet SRF is appropriate for all skin tones. Patients with good skin elasticity and mild to moderate skin laxity typically achieve the most satisfying results. For any cosmetic procedure, it is ideal to be a nonsmoker, have realistic expectations, and be in good overall health.

Our team can advise on whether Scarlet SRF is a good match for your goals during a private consultation.

Preparing for RF Microneedling

The Scarlet SRF treatment requires minimal preparation. Please avoid the following before your appointment:

  • Anticoagulants
  • Irritating skincare ingredients and products
  • Sun exposure and tanning
  • Artificial tanning
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser and LED treatments
  • Cosmetic injections

If possible, please ensure the treatment area is clean of makeup and lotions when you arrive at The Maas Clinic.

What to Expect From Your Scarlet SRF Procedure

We will begin your Scarlet SRF procedure by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure you are comfortable throughout the appointment. After approximately 30 minutes, we will cleanse the treatment area and prepare it for the RF microneedling in San Francisco. We will then administer the treatment by systematically moving the Scarlet SRF handpiece across your skin.

You will be monitored throughout your session to confirm that the procedure is neither aggressive nor mild for your skin concerns. Most patients report that the experience is comfortable and quick.

After Your Scarlet SRF Treatment

Some redness and swelling can be expected for a few hours after your RF microneedling treatment. You may notice your skin feels warm, like you have a mild sunburn. There is little to no bleeding or sensitivity as can sometimes occur with other microneedling treatments. Many patients feel comfortable returning to their regular daily activities immediately.

How Many Scarlet SRF Treatments Are Needed?

As little as one Scarlet SRF treatment is enough to produce noticeable results in your skin. For maximum benefits that last throughout the year, we recommend a series of three to four treatments.

When Are Results Expected?

You may observe a tightening effect immediately after your first Scarlet SRF treatment. This is merely the initial result of the treatment. Over time, your results will continue to improve as your body builds new collagen and elastin fibers in your skin. This process can continue for several months.

How Long Does RF Microneedling Last?

RF microneedling in San Francisco is a long-lasting, but not permanent, treatment. Results can last six months to a year following a Scarlet SRF treatment. The longevity of your results depends on a variety of factors unique to you, including your natural aging process, your lifestyle, and your skin condition.
