What is Secret RF Microneedling?
Secret RF Microneedling is the latest skincare treatment taking the aesthetics industry by storm. A versatile, multi-benefit treatment, it safely and effectively rejuvenates skin, while simultaneously improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pore size and fading acne scars. Better still, it can also be used on the body to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It’s a brilliant treatment for scars, anti-ageing and wrinkle reduction.
The way it works appears to be fairly simple, but is actually extremely sophisticated. Secret RF uses tiny gold-plated microneedles to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where it can do its best work.
The treatment involves puncturing the skin at different depths with tiny, minimally invasive, gold-plated micro-needles whilst also delivering radio-frequency energy to the mid-level dermis at the same time. This is able to kickstart the body’s natural healing process, meaning collagen product is stimulated, and more youthful, radiant, firmer and tighter skin is en route.
The system of delivering radio frequency energy is precisely controlled, mitigating the risk of burning the tissue, but instead hitting straight at the part of the skin where collagen is situated. Any skin that has previously been damaged by the ageing process or the fallout of acne scarring can quickly be restored and remodelled, and it’s the same mechanism that can help with stretch marks.
Easy, safe and effective, it can be performed in a quick 30-minute treatment session with little to no downtime.

What Happens During Secret RF Microneedling
After an in depth consultation, your doctor will first apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment areas to mitigate the risk of any pain or discomfort. This takes around 30-40 minutes to take effect, so consider that when booking your appointment. Once suitably numb, your doctor will then use the microneedling device on the predetermined treatment areas, taking care to minimise discomfort. In total (and depending on the areas you are treating), the treatment should take around 30 minutes.
After the treatment, your doctor will apply an ointment and ask you to refrain from wearing makeup for 24 hours. Any redness or swelling will subside within 12-24 hours. You may have some tightness, peeling, dryness for a few days after but you can expect to return to normal life straight away.

When it comes to Secret RF Microneedling treatment in London, prices can vary. However, here at The Doctor’s Method, prices start from £750, reflective of our unparalleled expertise, obsession with client satisfaction and total attention to detail.
Does Secret RF Microneedling hurt?
No! Here at The Doctor’s Method, your safety and comfort is our priority, so our doctors will apply a local anaesthetic prior to treatment, to reduce any discomfort felt. During the treatment, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area which for most patients is totally tolerable.
When will I see results from Secret RF Microneedling?
The effect of collagen production and remodelling tends to be seen around 4-6 weeks after the treatment, but the ideal protocol involves booking at least three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Most patients see a significant improvement in their skin after three-six treatments, and the more treatments you can, the greater the improvement.
Is there any downtime after Secret RF Microneedling?
We’ll always discuss risks and side effects at length before undertaking any skin booster treatment at The Doctor’s Method clinic in London, but as an overview, the Secret RF Microneedling treatment involves little to no downtime. There may be some redness after treatment that will subside quickly and the skin may feel tight, dry or rough for a couple of days.
How long do the results last?
Results will depend on your lifestyle, and how many treatments you book but the results should be long lasting and future maintenance will only be recommended every 12-18 months.
