A Secret To Share

(Other articles in this series: Just An IllusionMore than skin deep... and Beauty and the Botox)

Anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatments are becoming more sophisticated and widely available. We talk to the experts about the technology called  Secret® and Infini®. These are the names of two devices that have been designed to improve the quality of skin and was invented by the Southern Koreans some 3 years ago. Dr. Jean-Luc Vigneron specialist in dermatology and aesthetic surgery and founder of Villabianca said, "When I was introduced to this product, I thought, it was crazy and that it must be really painful." he then continued "But I tried it on my arms and found that the pain was minimal."

Dr Vigneron explained that the principle of using radio frequency is a treatment similar to the existing well known process called Thermage®. Fractional Micro-needle RF skin Refining & Recovery system(RF-cell) is the latest revolutionary RF technology combining advantages of Thermage technology and Micro needle therapy. It is a new technology innovation to effectively solve skin problems of epidermis and dermis

The aim is to heat the dermis with the purpose of establishing more collagen but the difficulty is that if the dermis is heated, it also heats the skin and this can be a painful process but with Secret RF radio frequencies can be delivered to any depth of the epidermis with more precision by the use of micro needles. This technique is called MRF: Radiofrequency microneedling and means RF energy can be directed to exactly where treatment is needed and preventing damage to any surrounding tissue. This also ensures that healing time is quick compared with many other traditional micro-needing or skin rejuvenation treatments.

Dr Vigneron recommends using Secret® and Infini® for treating scars and skin affected by acne or burns. He states that this method is also extremely effective for the reduction of wrinkles of the face; the cheeks, around the eye and neck area. It can also be used to treat stretch marks. Skin rejuvenation is achieved by tightening large pores which improves the flexibility and tone of the skin. Skin tightening and reshaping of the oval are achieved by the regeneration of collagen .

Dr Vigneron states "Our experience at Villabianca and of many practitioners in the world, have demonstrated the effectiveness of this new method and forms part of the successful treatments available to combat the ageing process and increase self confidence".

Dr Jean-Luc Vigneron always recommends a consultation to establish how this form of treatment can be beneficial to you.
