About Secret Duo

RF Micro-Needling and Laser Therapy

SECRET DUO combines RF Micro-Needling and 1540nm Erbium Glass Laser.

These two technologies can work individually or in combination to rejuvenate and remodel the skin.

Both technologies deliver thermal energy and create microscopic wounds within the dermal layers of skin, in turn stimulating fibroblast activity, causing significant increase in collagen production as well as tightening of elastin fibres and increase in lymphatic flow.

How Secret Duo Works

SECRET DUO with RF Mico-Needling uses Bi-Polar Radiofrequency energy, delivered precisely and directly into the deeper layers of the Dermis via minimally invasive micro-needles.

SECRET DUO with Erbium Glass 1540nm utilises non-ablative laser energy to precisely penetrate to the deeper layers of the Dermis whilst leaving the skin’s surface and surrounding tissue unaffected.

What Results Can I Expect From Secret Duo

Depending on your specific treatment, you can experience some or all of the following:

Collagen production and remodelling will occur approximately 4-6 weeks after treatment and continue for up to 3 months after each treatment.

The skin can tighten and lift, pore size can reduce, skin tone and texture can improve, and pigmentation can lighten.

You can expect to see a smoothing of wrinkles and reduction in the prominence of scars.

If you are being treated for Hyperhidrosis with RF Micro-Needling, there will be a permanent reduction to the number of sweat glands, and you could experience a reduction in sweat volume of up to 75% after two treatment sessions.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

This will vary according to your individual situation and treatment. However, most people will benefit from 3-5 treatment sessions.

Optimal treatment interval should be determined in consultation with your practitioner and will depend on the area being treated.

For ongoing benefits, a bi-annual maintenance treatment is recommended.

What To Expect During And After Your Secret Duo Treatment

Your Practitioner will examine your skin and your area(s) of concern. It is important to communicate clearly with your practitioner regarding your treatment goals. Secret Duo is a powerful and versatile system, it enables your practitioner to tailer your treatment to suit your individual needs.

An Anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin and will be left to take effect for up to 1 hour.

RF Micro-Needling

Your practitioner will move the handpiece progressively over the treatment area, pausing to ‘stamp’ your skin with the Micro-Needles that deliver RF Energy.

You will feel a momentary warm prickling sensation. The intensity of this sensation will depend on the RF Energy setting and the depth of the Micro-Needles.

Micro-Needles can penetrate from 0.5mm – 3.5mm, depending on the area to be treated.

Erbium Glass Laser 1540nm

Your practitioner will position the handpiece lightly on the skin and move progressively over the treatment area in a ‘stamping’ or ‘sweeping’ motion.

You will feel a momentary warmth and prickling sensation that is managed with cold air for added comfort and safety.

The intensity of this sensation will depend on the Laser Energy delivered.

Secret Duo treatments take anywhere between 20-60 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will be red and feel warm and tingly, similar to a sunburn. The redness will subside over a period of 6-48 hours.

You will be sensitive to extreme temperatures; it is wise to stay out of direct sunlight.

See & Feel The Difference

STEP 1

Advanced DUO technologies of micro needling combined with laser triggers intense skin rejuvenation for skin cells to renew themselves. This new advanced therapy induces collagen production for skin remodelling deep and superficially within the skin layers, targeting a multitude of ageing concerns in 1 single treatment.

STEP 2

An intensive cell renewal is triggered in the skin’s deeper layer (dermis) while a gentle resurfacing in the superficial layers (epidermis) delivers superior results with faster recovery. As collagen is produced at these levels, the skin’s texture and tone improves and becomes smoother and fresher.

STEP 3
The result is healthier, younger and tighter looking skin. You will notice continuous improvements for the following months after treatment. Don’t forget to wear SPF 30+ ongoing to maintain your glow.
