Secret RF uses 64 gold-plated microneedles to deliver energy (fractional radio frequency -RF) to all layers of the skin, without damage to the skin’s surface. This is a customisable treatment which can be tailored to your individual skin concerns.
The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes but we book you for an hour so that there is plenty time for the topical anaesthetic to work prior to treatment. Prior to the procedure, your skin will be cleansed and topical anaesthetic will be used to minimise discomfort during treatment. The Secret RF device is applied to the skin and glides across the treatment areas. The depth of treatment is adjustable, so it is safe to use on the entire face. Our treatment finishes with a complimentary LED boost to soothe skin and accelerate healing.
Secret RF is very well tolerated. Nonetheless not everyone will be a candidate. We cannot perform treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We cannot perform treatment if you have active acne or any other skin infection including a coldsore. If you do not presently have a coldsore but get coldsores frequently, please contact the clinic at least 1 week before your scheduled treatment so that we can formulate a plan to minimise the risk of any complications for you. We cannot carry out Secret RF if you have skin cancer, bleeding disorders, poorly controlled diabetes, allergy to stainless steel, gold, other metals or topical anaesthetic, have had another aesthetic treatment within the last 2 weeks or if you are using any oral medications for your skin in the past 6 months. We cannot carry out Secret RF if you have vitiligo, a pacemaker, cardiac conditions, keloid scarring, any metal implants in the treatment area or any active skin condition in the treatment area including: sores, psoriasis or eczema.
It is important to inform us if you have had face lift or eyelid surgery in treatment area within the two years prior to treatment. Please also infomr us if you have had any deep chemical peels, dermabrasion or resurfacing in the previous six months.
We do not recommend having any other skin, beauty or aesthetic treatments in the two weeks before a seretRF (includes brow treatments, waxing, laser hair removal). Please ensure that you are feeling fit & well on the day of your treatment. Treatment cannot be performed if you are feeling unwell or have had a recent illness including flu.
Read our information leaflet here for full guidance.
During the procedure, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area. For most clients, the treatment is comfortable and your aesthetic doctor will monitor this throughout your session.
SecretRF is very well tolerated but do keep in mind that your skin will be red and will feel tight, a little like a sunburn. For most people the redness subsides significantly within 48 hours. You won’t be able to apply any products including makeup for up to 48 hours. You may notice some swelling especially around the eye area. This can last for up to a few days. Your skin will feel tender for a day or two. You may experience some flaking that commences on day 3 and can last for up to a week.
Many clients notice that their skin appears more radiant and tighter after the second treatment but best results are seen three months after completion of course of treatment. Remember, it takes your skin time to make all this new glorious collagen.
We usually recommend a course of 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. The longevity of results varies based on individual lifestyle factors. We recommended additional treatments every 12-18 months to maintain results or as recommended in your ORA journey.
Loose or lax skin, Wrinkles, Jowl, Enlarged pores, Acne scarring and scarring.
Pre & Post Care
At ORA, the aim is not to look younger, but to look and feel good about yourself through every stage of life. We believe in positive ageing and the Ora Method is based on signature techniques inspired by the philosophy of restoration and preservation.
Preservation and respect of your natural inherent beauty coupled with the restoration and reversal of signs of ageing ensures natural and untouched results.
Our consultations set out the initial treatment journey. We view our patient relationships as a continuum and work together to help ensure your journey stays on track and that your goals are realised.
We are careful and artistic in the way we apply our treatments. We approach every client holistically and we don’t believe in results that are obvious. The ORA method leaves clients looking fresh, radiant, refreshed. We are the antithesis of frozen, puffy and overfilled results.
The ORA team is doctor led and all clients will meet with one of our aesthetic doctors at the start of their journey. There are four aesthetic doctors at ORA, each with an unrivalled commitment to the holistic approach we are known for and to achieving natural beautiful results. Each member of the team was invited to join ORA because of their level of expertise. We understand that a team of experts is stronger than its individual members alone. We are a truly collaborative team and believe that the best results are achieved by a multidisciplinary team approach., We often discuss treatment plans, share knowledge and treat our clients collaboratively. This means that our patients uniquely benefit from our combined knowledge and experience and we remain at the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine.
We have been lucky to build a loyal patient base largely developed through word of mouth and personal recommendations. We treat a range of people both women and men of all different ages. Whether it's the professional who wants to access innovate skin treatments with little downtime, the new mom who wants to give herself a selfcare boost, the bride/groom/mother of the bride with an important upcoming event, the busy mother/father squeezing in a moment between school drops, the post menopausal woman who wants to feel like herself again - we have looked after them all. The uniting sentiment between our Ora patients is the appreciation of our dedication to artistic, natural and beautiful results. Our clients return for our signature techniques that never leave them overdone, but rather, reveal their best selves.
