WHAT IS SECRET™ PRO REVIVE?

A treatment that combines CO2 laser energy with radio frequency microneedling to treat an incredible range of skin concerns all at once. While CO2 laser technology targets the outermost layers of the skin, the RF energy reaches into the deeper dermal layers. The unique combination of these two technologies improves fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, skin texture, pore size, crepey skin, and sun-damaged skin.

  • Avoid direct, prolonged (more than 20 min) sun exposure, including tanning beds, sprays and lotions, etc; using SPF 30 or higher daily, for 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • Discontinue use of exfoliants and topicals with active ingredients such as: anti-aging and anti-acne products including Retin A, Tretinoin, acids and hydroquinone 3 days prior to treatment

  • Notify clinic with any changes to your health history or medications since your last appointment

  • History of herpes or cold sores may require an antiviral prescription prior to treatment

WHAT ARE THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS?

  • Do not wash your face for at least 6-8 hours post-treatment

  • Wash and pat dry the skin gently twice day until the crusting naturally exfoliates/sloughs off

  • Apply a mild/non-fragrant moisturizing cream to the treatment area twice a day for 2 weeks or until the area is fully healed

  • A visible fine scab or crusting will develop 3 and 5 days after your treatment – Do not remove it forcibly or scratch it

  • Apply sunblock every 3 to 4 hours for a minimum of 2 weeks to a month after your procedure to help prevent UV-induced pigmentation

  • Avoid skin products with active ingredients for 7-10 days after treatment

  • Avoid sauna and aggressive exercises for 1-2 weeks

  • Optional to keep your skin cool and moisturized by spraying with cold water during the healing process

  • Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water

  • Notify clinic of any concerns (blistering, excessive redness/swelling)

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT?

  • Numbing cream will be provided to ensure patient comfort.

  • The treatment will begin with multiple passes of the RF microneedling that may feel like slight pressure and tingling while the micro-sized needles gently penetrate the skin.

  • Next, your provider will gently stamp the CO2 laser over the same treatment area to create thousands of microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This combination procedure will maximize the stimulation of your body’s natural creation of new collagen.

  • The procedure typically takes 30-45 minutes.

  • The amount of downtime depends on the skin conditions being treated. Superficial procedures will only require a few days to heal, while deeper treatments may require a week. Your provider will discuss the needed healing time before the treatment

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

  • The number of treatments will depend on the conditions being treated. 1-3 treatments are usually required, and they are generally performed 3-6 weeks apart.

  • Most patients see improvements after 4-6 days or when the exfoliation process is complete.

  • Results will continue to improve over the next 3-4 months after the treatment. Superficial procedures results are visible sooner than deeper treatments. Improvements will appear gradually over the days and weeks following your procedure series, as your skin repairs itself and new collagen forms.
