Secret RF — A New Service!

Chicago's Nima Skin Institute now offers Secret RF by Cetera

We are pleased to offer Secret RF, a novel approach that delivers fractional radio frequency (RF) energy to all layers of the skin with minimal damage to the skin’s surface. The multi-layered treatment is tailored to each individual and addresses their unique skin concern during each customized treatment. 

Curious? Here are some commonly asked questions:

What skin conditions does it treat? 

The Secret RF treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars, acnes scars, skin quality and striae. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and patients seeking skin revitalization. 

How does it work? 

Secret RF uses microneedles to deliver radio frequency energy into varying levels of the skin including the deeper layers where treatment is most beneficial. Unlike other devices which only deposit energy in upper layer of the skin, Secret RF delivers RF energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue. This allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types. 

What is the Secret RF procedure like? 

It is an easy, safe and effective procedure that can be performed in about a 30 to 60-minute treatment session. Prior to the procedure, we apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to increase your comfort. 

How many Secret RF treatments are needed? 

Patients typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvement after the second treatment; however results are optimized 3 months after the last treatment. 

How long does a treatment last? 

Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months. 

What can you expect after your procedure? 

After the treatment, serum will be applied to the skin and you will be asked to refrain from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
