“I’m SO unbelievably happy with my Scarlet results it’s ridiculous! I don’t even have to wear foundation anymore! AMAZING!” – Our Patient Bernadette
What is The Scarlet RF System?
It’s a non-surgical facelift!
Scarlet RF is a revolutionary short-pulse radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling skin treatment that increases the density of your skin to improve firmness, and decrease sagging and the appearance of aging. Restored essential components of younger skin are reconnected for optimized dermal health. There’s less downtime than with other treatments and they are less painful than with other devices.
Approved by the FDA as a safe and effective anti-aging therapy, Scarlet delivers RF energy beneath the superficial layer of skin through specialized microneedles. The body responds to this by stimulating the production of collagen — the skin’s main structural protein — to repair and tighten the skin.
A Scarlet scalp treatment tightens skin with the intent of treating forehead wrinkles, eyebrow drooping, crow’s feet, cheekbone and mouth sagging, smile lines, and skin around the jaw – usually only treatable with a surgical facelift.

How do I prepare for the treatment?
The Scarlet RF treatment doesn’t need any special preparation before your visit. However, this is a medical treatment, so a consultation with our medical team is required. If you are concerned about physical discomfort or anxiety with treatment, please ask about the PRO-NOX Nitrous Oxide System during your initial consultation.
Ask your practitioner about starting Alastin Skincare’s Procedure Enhancement System 14-30 days before your treatment. Pre-treating with this system will clear non-functioning collagen and impurities and prepare your skin for optimal results. And continuing after treatment will minimize downtime and elevate results. Directions for use.
How long does a treatment take?
Scarlet RF treatments takes about twenty minutes for the face and ten minutes for the neck. The time needed for a body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. The Scarlet RF treatment is both time-efficient and revolutionarily effective. Please ask your practitioner if you are concerned about your comfort level.
Post-treatment or downtime?
Scarlet RF is the safest treatment in the field of RF systems, with little to no downtime and no side effects. For just a few hours after your treatment, redness and a little swelling can be expected, though both should only be mild. Your face might feel warm, like you’ve had a mild sunburn. Basic skin and hair care is all that’s needed in the days after the procedure. Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
For those receiving a scalp treatment, you may feel a slight pulling or tugging sensation for a few days. As with all our medical treatments, a post-treatment care sheet will be provided, along with contact information.
How long until I see results?
Some visible tightening results come immediately, and the results of dermal remodeling appear over time as collagen and elastin fibers regenerate. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in two to three months. A minimum of three sessions is recommended for optimal results. The results can last six months to a year, depending on your general skin condition, and touch-up procedures can help maintain your appearance over time.
What’s the science?
The Scarlet RF uses minimally invasive microneedling electrode technology, which coagulates the dermis directly with precisely controlled RF energy at varying treatment depths. Treatment depth, power, and mode are monitored and modified during treatment by our skilled practitioners. Overall dermal health is improved by restoring and reconnecting the essential components of healthy, youthful skin—volumetric collagen and elastin. The teardrop shape of energy below the skin is what makes this treatment so effective. Renowned doctor and scientist Jongju Na was able to find this key method for the safest and most effective RF treatment. He named this discovery the “Na effect”. The proven science behind the Na effect is what allows the Scarlet RF to deliver this unique treatment for rejuvenation of the skin and scalp.
Can this treatment be used as part of a combo therapy?
Yes, we often suggest combining complementary therapies such as Botox, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and dermal fillers.
