Scarlet SRF Treatment in Asheville
SRF stands for short-pulse radio frequency. This treatment combines the tried and true results of traditional microneedling with short pulses of bipolar signal energy to synergistically promote more production of long-lasting collagen while tightening and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles with limited downtime. The Internationally patented Na Effect creates a tear drop coagulation zone (area where new collagen is stimulated by heat) that treats different layers of skin with each pulse in a larger tear drop shaped area, as opposed to just treating the area at the tip of the needle. This unique system also protects the epidermis making it a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. Scarlet SRF is very safe, and can also be used to treat the eye area including the eye lid helping to rejuvenate and smooth that delicate area that becomes crepe with time.
Who is a good candidate for the Scarlet treatment?
Scarlet SRF is safe and effective for all ages and all skin types. Mature men and women are reclaiming a healthy, more youthful looking glow by healing damaged skin and rebuilding lost collagen. Scarlet is FDA approved for both skin tightening, scalp tightening, and for treating pore size, scars and photo aging. Tightening the scalp is a game changer, allowing treatment to lift the upper face as well. The hairline behind the ear area and back of the neck can also be treated to help pull back the loose skin of the lower jawline.
Young people with acne and rosacea are also achieving their skin goals with Scarlet SRF. Scarlet SRF is a state of the art treatment for acne scars and trauma scars as well, promoting healthier, more organized collagen production with each treatment. For young people worried about their first wrinkles or changes in skin texture and tone, Scarlet SRF can restore lost collagen and restore skin health to create smoother, more vibrant skin that feels thicker, has more elasticity and retains moisture better.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Our professional team will create a customized plan for your aftercare so that you can achieve maximum results. You may experience some redness, mild swelling and /or your skin may feel slightly sunburned. This generally goes away within hours or for some a couple of days. Many notice visible tightening immediately following the treatment with results continuing to improve over the next months.
How can I optimize my treatment results?
Nutrition and other lifestyle habits effect how we age. Although everyone can benefit from a Scarlet SRF treatment to increase skin health, we all have different eating, drinking, stress and sleep habits that have an impact on how our body responds to a stimulus such as a skin treatment like Scarlet SRF. Our top recommendations to optimize your results and skin health in general include:
- Stay hydrated! Your skin needs water for proper function. Hydrate before your treatment and go for ½ of your body weight in ounces of water, or other healthy decaffeinated drink per day.
- Boost your vitamins that are needed for your body to make new fresh collagen especially for the first two weeks after your treatment. Increase vitamins A, B, C and E by adding more leafy greens, and fruits and vegetables of various colors throughout the day. Add 1000mg of Vitamin C for a week post your treatment to help your body heal. Emergen C packets or another C supplement can help you achieve this goal.
- Increase healthy fats like Omega 3’s.
We recommend eating Wild Salmon a couple times per week or supplementing with a quality fish oil. Other healthy fats to include are nuts, chia seeds and avocados.
- Add Collagen Peptides to your diet. Collagen peptides are a great protein supplement that provides your body with essential amino acid building blocks, that help you promote healthy skin, joints, hair and nails.
- Make Sleep a priority
- Wear your sunblock
Can Scarlet Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Absolutely! Scarlet is a wonderful stand alone treatment to restore skin health; it is very effective to tighten, tighten and lift the skin, reduce pore size and regain skin’s vitality. However, it is also a great adjunct to other treatments for those wanting to maximize their results by addressing any volume loss for instance. Scarlet can be combined beautifully with dermal fillers and neuromodulators such as Restylane, Juvederm and Dysport, to address many different signs of aging and truly turn back the clock on your appearance.
