The Secret™ PRO device effectively targets the dermis and employs tiny microneedles to transmit radio frequency (RF) energy at various levels, depending on the patient’s unique skin profile and anatomical / aesthetic needs. Our Upper East Side, NYC based practice offers a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can help patients achieve dramatic, yet natural-looking results. more pleasing facial contour.
The double Ivy League trained plastic surgeon is an expert in non-surgical facial aesthetic treatment, especially use of the Secret™ PRO microneedling device at our Upper East Side, New York based plastic surgery practice. The device utilizes a variety of very small, sterilized needles (a minimally invasive technique) to make microscopic channels at different depths in the dermis without harming the epidermis. The dermis develops a variety of small lesions across intact tissue as a result of the energy delivery. The dermis is heated directly, which stimulates the creation of new collagen and subsequent tightening of the tissue. The intact epidermis and surrounding skin tissue promote quick re-epithelialization, minimizing hazards and downtime. Studies have demonstrated the efficacy of fractional radiofrequency microneedling in the treatment of a variety of things including: to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, jowling, stretch marks, acne scars, surgical and traumatic scars, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and stretch marks, and to tighten the skin of the face, neck, décolletage, knees, thighs, buttock, abdomen, and other areas of the body.
The Secret™ PRO uses a novel combination of two clinically tested technologies in a single device to address skin regeneration in a non-traditional manner. The complete thickness of the skin, from the epidermis to the deeper dermal layers, can be efficiently treated with radio frequency microneedling and fractional CO2 separately or combined. CO2 is especially effective at treating sun damage, skin texture irregularities, and crepey skin. Secret RF is one of the few devices that is safe for all skin complexions and tones, and is particularly effective in treating scars and signs of aging through collagen stimulation.
Secret™ RF employs microscopic needles to transmit radio frequency energy into the skin at different levels depending upon each patient’s individual skin characteristics. Secret™ RF can function within the deep layers of the dermis to assist renew and regenerate tissue, in contrast to other RF devices that only transmit energy to the surface layers of skin. We can obtain the best results on all skin types with minimal to no downtime thanks to this special energy delivery system.
During your initial consultation with the top rated board certified (Upper East Side, NYC) female plastic surgeon, you will explain your post-procedural goals and review in detail your non-surgical facial treatment options.

You will also have the opportunity to speak with the plastic surgeon one-on-one to review before and after photos, as well as discuss any questions or concerns you might have about the non-surgical microneedling treatment.
