Secret RF Q & A

What is Secret RF?

Secret™ RF is a revolutionary aesthetics treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to smooth, brighten, and rejuvenate your skin in a few short treatments. Secret RF addresses both the surface and deeper skin layers for maximum revitalization with minimal recovery time.

How does Secret RF work?

Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in your skin, stimulating tissue healing and cellular renewal. Radiofrequency energy also promotes tissue renewal by heating your skin’s cells to encourage the production of new collagen. 

By increasing circulation, rebuilding cellular structure, and enhancing cell turnover, Secret RF leaves your skin looking more radiant and youthful, without surgery or downtime.  

Which conditions can be improved with Secret RF?

Secret RF offers visible improvement of many common skin concerns, including:


  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dull skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks


Secret RF is customized to meet the individual goals of each patient. Dr. Benz uses Secret RF to safely and effectively treat all skin types.

What should I expect during my Secret RF procedure?

During your Secret RF treatment, you recline comfortably while Dr. Benz applies a topical numbing cream to the target area. He then uses a special handpiece to apply the microneedling radiofrequency to your skin. During the procedure, you can expect to feel some heat and pressure, but most people find these sensations tolerable.

Treatments typically take about 20 minutes. You may have some mild swelling after your Secret RF procedure, but this usually subsides within 24 hours. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after their appointment.

How many treatments will I need?

How many Secret RF treatments are necessary to achieve the skin rejuvenation results you seek depends on your personal goals and other individual factors. During your initial consultation, Dr. Benz discusses your skin goals with you in detail. She then designs a treatment plan based on your needs.

You may notice improvements after your first Secret RF procedure. Most of the time, however, a series of at least three treatments is needed for optimal results.

If wrinkles, age spots, or scars have you feeling less than confident about your appearance, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation for Secret RF. Call Ricarda Benz, MD, today or make an appointment online.
