What Is Scarlet Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Scarlet is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to trigger skin tightening effects by delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy into the subdermal tissue through microneedle channels. Each microneedle acts as an electrode that emits pulses of RF energy into the dermis, generating heat that stimulates collagen production. Treatments are convenient, safe and customizable. By working within the deeper layers of your skin, Scarlet achieves long-lasting results that go beyond topical rejuvenation.

How Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?

In traditional microneedling, a device with fine, short needles is used to create tiny injuries or “micro-channels” in the skin. The body responds to these small wounds by initiating a healing process that stimulates collagen growth and cellular renewal. As the wounds are repaired, the skin tightens and imperfections on the surface gradually fade.  Scarlet RF microneedling enhances this process by including radiofrequency energy in the treatment. When the RF energy travels to the skin’s deeper layers, the heat it produces triggers additional collagen generation and causes the subdermal tissues to contract and tighten. The result is firmer and smoother skin with a healthy, youthful glow.

Scarlet RF microneedling can be used on the face and body for:

  • Skin tightening
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing pore size
  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Softening surgical scars
  • Diminishing acne scarring
  • Minimizing stretch marks
  • Rebuilding collagen fibers

What Happens During a Scarlet Treatment?

Microneedling with Scarlet RF requires minimal preparation before your visit, other than a consultation with our aesthetics team. First, your skin will be cleansed and sterilized. A topical numbing agent will then be applied to ensure your comfort. Once it takes effect, your provider will pass the Scarlet handpiece over your concern areas in a gentle stamping motion.

A treatment session takes approximately 60 minutes for the face or 45 minutes for the neck or décolletage. The time needed for a Scarlet body treatment depends on the size and condition of the targeted area.

Who Is a Candidate for Scarlet?

Scarlet is a safe and effective choice for almost anyone. Because it uses radiofrequency technology, which is not affected by skin color like some light-based technologies, all skin tones can safely enjoy the benefits of Scarlet treatments. Radiofrequency microneedling may be ideal for you if you want to improve mild to moderate skin laxity and desire younger-looking skin without a surgical procedure.
