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.

What Concerns Can Scarlet Improve?

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

  • Skin tightening
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles

  • Targets numerous skin issues on the face, neck and décolletage
  • FDA-cleared and patented in over 70 countries
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Treatments take 30 minutes or less to complete in our office

  • Regular maintenance treatments extend positive results indefinitely

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 30 minutes for the face or 15 minutes for the neck or décolletage. The time needed for a Scarlet body treatment depends on the size and condition of the targeted area.

What Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Feel Like?

With the topical numbing cream, your Scarlet treatment should feel like little more than light pressure against your face and a mild heating sensation. Discomfort is minimal to moderate, with no acute pain. Your provider can adjust the intensity of the device to suit your comfort level.

Is Downtime Needed After a Scarlet Treatment?

One of the best features of the Scarlet system is its convenience. It was designed with comfort in mind, so side effects are mild and there is no required downtime. Your skin may appear slightly flushed or swollen immediately after a session. This should fade away within several hours and should not require you to take time off from your daily schedule. Your regular skincare routine is all that’s needed for aftercare. We encourage you to minimize sun exposure while you heal, as well as after your treatment to preserve your results.

What Results Can I Expect With Scarlet Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Skin tightening results may be visible immediately after your Scarlet RF microneedling treatment, while the results of increased collagen production and dermal remodeling appear over time. Your most significant improvements will emerge gradually over two to three months. Scarlet acts as a reset button for your skin, achieving noticeable improvements in tone and texture while minimizing imperfections like acne scars, fine lines and sun damage. The results can last six months to a year following a Scarlet treatment session, depending on your skin condition and aging process.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One Scarlet treatment can deliver noticeable results, but the most substantial improvements are seen after a series of treatments spaced one month apart. Three to four treatments will maximize your facial rejuvenation effect. For more stubborn concerns, such as deep wrinkles or acne scars, five to seven treatments may be required. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled once every four to six months following your initial Scarlet treatments.

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.
