Secret RF: The Best Choice for Treating Acne Scarring with RF Microneedling

Acne scars can be a persistent and distressing problem, impacting your confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, there is an effective solution: Secret RF with RF Microneedling. This advanced treatment is the best choice for addressing acne scarring, and when combined with ALASTIN Skin Nectar by Galderma, it delivers optimal results in about four sessions.

What is Secret RF?

Secret RF is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment that uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology. It targets the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen production and skin regeneration. Unlike traditional microneedling, which only penetrates the surface layer, Secret RF delivers energy into the deeper layers, providing more significant and long-lasting results.

Why RF Microneedling is Effective for Acne Scarring

Acne scarring occurs when there is a disruption in the skin’s healing process, often leading to uneven texture and depressions. RF Microneedling addresses these issues by:

  1. Stimulating Collagen Production: The RF energy heats the skin layers, triggering collagen and elastin production, which helps to fill in scars and improve skin texture.
  2. Promoting Skin Regeneration: The controlled micro-injuries created by the needles encourage the skin to heal and renew itself, reducing the appearance of scars.
  3. Customizable Treatment: Secret RF can be adjusted to target specific skin concerns and depths, making it a versatile solution for various types of acne scars.

Optimal Results with Four Sessions

While some improvement can be seen after just one session, optimal results typically require about four sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. This schedule allows the skin to heal and regenerate between treatments, enhancing the overall effectiveness. Patients often notice significant improvements in skin texture, reduced scar visibility, and a more even skin tone after completing the treatment series.

Enhancing Results with ALASTIN Skin Nectar

To maximize the benefits of Secret RF, incorporating ALASTIN Skin Nectar by Galderma into your skincare routine is highly recommended. This advanced formula supports the skin’s healing process and enhances the outcomes of RF Microneedling by:

  1. Accelerating Recovery: ALASTIN Skin Nectar contains TriHex Technology, which helps to clear out damaged proteins and promote the regeneration of healthy skin.
  2. Reducing Downtime: The soothing and nourishing ingredients help minimize inflammation and redness, allowing you to return to your regular activities sooner.
  3. Enhancing Skin Quality: Regular use of Skin Nectar improves skin texture and tone, complementing the rejuvenating effects of Secret RF.

The Treatment Process


Before starting Secret RF, a consultation with one of our experienced aestheticians is essential. They will assess your skin condition, discuss your goals, and create a personalised treatment plan. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and discontinue any retinoid products at least one week before the treatment to prepare your skin.

During the Treatment

The procedure begins with cleansing the skin and applying a numbing cream to ensure comfort. The Secret RF device is then used to create controlled micro-injuries while delivering RF energy into the skin. The session typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.


After the treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a mild sunburn. This usually subsides within a few days. It’s crucial to follow post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and applying ALASTIN Skin Nectar to support healing.

What to Expect: Results and Aftercare

Patients often see improvements within a few weeks after the first session, with continued enhancements over the following months as collagen production increases. By the end of the four sessions, you can expect:

  • Reduced Appearance of Acne Scars: The depth and visibility of scars are significantly diminished.
  • Improved Skin Texture: The skin feels smoother and more even.
  • Enhanced Skin Tone: Discoloration and hyperpigmentation are reduced, giving the skin a more uniform appearance.

Maintaining the results involves a consistent skincare routine and periodic maintenance treatments if recommended by your skincare professional.


Secret RF with RF Microneedling is the best choice for treating acne scarring, offering a powerful and effective solution with minimal downtime. By committing to a series of about four sessions and incorporating ALASTIN Skin Nectar by Galderma, you can achieve optimal results and enjoy smoother, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin.
