First in the UK to introduce a new anti-ageing and rejuvenating medical treatment, called Secret RF.
Dr Joshua Berkowitz, Clinical Director and founder of Wimpole Aesthetics in London’s West End, is proud to announce that his practice is the first in the UK to introduce a new anti-ageing and rejuvenating medical treatment, called Secret RF.
It’s well known that Dr Berkowitz is a keen innovator in advanced cosmetic medical techniques. He was one of the first UK cosmetic doctors to pioneer the use of Vaser Liposelection as an alternative to radical liposuction surgery, and now Dr Berkowitz is a leading international trainer of other cosmetic medical doctors. He is also an examiner at Leicester Medical School for the Degree in Aesthetics Medicine.
The Secret RF device is technically known as a “fractional ablative radiofrequency device”. It can be used for a variety of skin conditions and ailments; from reducing sun damage, scarring, lines and wrinkles, to very effective skin tightening and stimulating new collagen in and under the skin.
Secret RF is medical device that delivers bipolar radio frequencies energies to a selected depth under the skin. The energy is delivered through some exceptionally fine gold plated micro needles. Once the needles are through the skin the device will deliver a preselected amount of radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production. The operating Doctor can select from a wide range of modalities so that each treatment is tailored to the needs of that patient’s requirements. Secret RF goes way beyond traditional manual micro-needling devices.
The beauty of Secret RF is that the radio frequencies can be delivered precisely to any depth of the epidermis, because the penetration depth of the micro needles can be finely controlled. This means the RF energy is focussed exactly where treatment is needed, thereby preventing damage to any surrounding tissue. As a consequence, healing time is quick compared with many other traditional micro-needing or skin rejuvenation treatments.
Secret RF can be used on all skin types, including dark skin, and on all areas of the body. It can be used to treat the face, neck and decolletage. It can also be used effectively to reduce stretch marks and axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiration in the armpits).
Dr Berkowitz highly rates Secret RF, saying “It’s an exciting development in anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine and I’m impressed by how versatile Secret RF can be. I can vary each treatment to match the skin problems of each patient. For example, by precisely adjusting the energy delivered through the micro needles I can stimulate much greater amounts of collagen than I’ve ever been able to do before. I like the fact that four Secret RF treatments cost the patient more or less the same as one Thermage treatment, providing a welcome affordable option for our patients to achieve impressive results using this modern advanced technology.
Furthermore Secret RF is also quite comfortable for the patient and hence it is proving very popular in my clinic. I’ve also found it to have wonderful and dramatic results on acne scarring, large skin pores and many other visible blemishes. Many of our patients will benefit from it, including those with skin that has gradually lost its elasticity, those with acne scarring, large pores or visible blemishes.”
With Secret RF healing time is minimal, and may be limited to a few hours of redness which soon settles. However for some patients who require more intensive treatments the redness may last for up to 48 hours. The benefits will last a long time and acne scarring will be permanently improved.
For someone in their 50s Dr Berkowitz would typically recommend 1 treatment a year to compensate for the natural ageing process. However, Secret RF isn’t an instant fix. The skin still needs to be in a good condition in the first place, which means Dr Berkowitz encourages better skin health through the use of good quality skin care products as well as a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Patients at Wimpole Aesthetics have access to nutritional therapy support, to help maintain good overall skin health.
Wimpole Aesthetics provides a full range of anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine as well as nutritional and wellness medicine. Dr Berkowitz and his staff can offer a full range of non-surgical aesthetic procedures, vaser liposelection, hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical hormones, for men and women, as well as nutritional and wellness treatments and advice.
