What conditions does it treat?
The Secret PRO Refine treatment series improves some of the most visible signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles1, large pores, stretch marks, acne scars, and many other skin concerns. This treatment is ideal for skin revitalization of the face, neck, decollate, knees, and other body areas.

What is the treatment like?
Before the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area for increased comfort during the treatment. During the treatment, you may feel slight pressure and tingling while the micro-sized needles gently penetrate the skin and deliver heat to stimulate collagen production. The treatment is comfortable, and your provider will work with you to maintain your comfort level throughout the entire treatment. You can expect the treatment to take about 20 minutes.

Is there downtime after the treatment?
Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment. Your skin will have moderate redness after the treatment, which will subside significantly within a few hours.

You may have some slight flushing the next day, which can be covered with make.

How many treatments will I need?

Secret PRO Ultra-light

What is the Secret PRO Ultra-Light treatment?
Secret PRO Ultra-light is a CO2 gentle laser micro peel treatment that safely and effectively improves your skin tone and texture by gently resurfacing a thin outer layer of your skin. This treatment provides quality results that are tailored to your skin’s specific conditions. You’ll enjoy healthier-looking, refreshed skin, quickly and easily!

What conditions does it treat?
Secret PRO Ultra-Light helps promote healthy skin and provides results for many common skin concerns, including; uneven skin tone and texture and overall complexion quality.

What is the treatment like?
Before your treatment begins, a topical numbing cream will be applied to increase comfort. During the treatment, your provider will gently stamp the laser over the treatment area to create thousands of superficial microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. As the perforations heal, new cells appear, leaving your skin with a healthier and refreshed appearance. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes.

Is there downtime after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will be pink, feel very warm, and sensitive to touch. Your provider will offer a topical skincare regimen following the treatment to optimize treatment results. The next day, you will notice a pattern forming over the treatment area from the microscopic perforations that will begin to scab and sluff off over the next few days. The exfoliation process typically lasts 3-4 days.

How many treatments will I need?
Most patients will need 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Your provider will create an ideal treatment plan customized for you, depending on your skin concerns.

When will I see results?

Secret PRO Revive

What is the Secret PRO Revive Treatment?
The Secret PRO Revive treatment combines CO2 laser energy with radio frequency microneedling to treat an incredible range of skin concerns all at once. While CO2 laser technology targets the outermost layers of the skin, the RF energy reaches into the deeper dermal layers. With the unique combination of these two technologies, your treatment can be customized to maximize the results of your specific aesthetic needs.

What conditions does it treat?
The combination of two technologies gives the Secret PRO Revive treatment the power to treat a wide range of conditions simultaneously. While the fractional RF microneedling penetrates deeper in the skin, the fractional CO2 laser resurfaces the top layers of the skin to improve the skin’s tone and texture. This combination treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles1, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, skin texture, pore size, crepey skin, and sun-damaged skin.

What is the treatment like?
Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied and/or a prescribed medication will be provided to ensure comfort during the entire procedure. The treatment will begin with multiple passes of the RF microneedling that may feel like slight pressure and tingling while the micro-sized needles gently penetrate the skin. Next, your provider will gently stamp the CO2 laser over the same treatment area to create thousands of microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This combination procedure will maximize the stimulation of your body’s natural creation of new collagen. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 30-45 minutes.

Is there downtime after the treatment?
The amount of downtime depends on the skin conditions being treated. Superficial procedures will only require a few days to heal, while deeper treatments may require a week. Your provider will discuss the needed healing time before the treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will depend on the conditions being treated. 1-3 treatments are usually required, and they are generally performed 3-6 weeks apart. Your provider will discuss and determine your treatment plan during your initial consultation.

When will I see results?
Most patients see improvements after 4-6 days or when the exfoliation process is complete. Results will continue to improve over the next 3-4 months after the treatment. Superficial procedures results are visible sooner than deeper treatments. Improvements will appear gradually over the days and weeks following your procedure series, as your skin repairs itself and new collagen forms.

Am I a candidate for Secret PRO Revive?
Secret PRO Revive safely and effectively provides skin resurfacing and revitalization for fair to medium skin tones. Talk to your provider to determine if this treatment option is right for you!
