Our Philosophy

What is Scarlet Radiofrequency Microneedling?

The sun, time, and environment often make an appearance on your skin in the form of uneven pigmentation, age spots, broken capillaries, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and rosacea, leaving your skin looking less than radiant. These blemishes can be distracting, embarrassing, and a hit to your confidence.

If you want to treat age spots, spider veins, rosacea, and other skin conditions, Scarlet RF Microneedling can be the perfect solution.

The treatment uses short-pulse radiofrequency along with microneedling to address a variety of skin issues, including loose skin, acne scarring, and stretch marks. It can be used on any skin type or color.

To start the process, you’ll first meet with Dr. Lee or one of our trained Skin Care Specialists. We will examine the treatment area, talk about your goals for the procedure, and lay out your customized treatment plan.

Before Your Procedure

Before Scarlet RF Microneedling, be prepared to share your medical history, including previous surgeries, medical conditions, drug allergies, and current medications at your initial consultation. This helps us ensure you’re a good candidate for this treatment.

You’ll also want to avoid excess sun exposure for two weeks before treatment, skip skincare products that irritate your skin for one week prior to the procedure, and avoid taking any blood thinners and NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen a week before your appointment. Additionally, make sure your face is clean and free of makeup on the day of your treatment.

Before we get started, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you’re completely comfortable.

During Your Procedure

Scarlet RF Microneedling typically takes about 30 minutes for the face and longer for other areas of the body.

Prior to your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible! During treatment, Dr. Lee or one of our specialists will place the device on your skin and move it around the treatment area. The device will use specialized microneedles to make tiny punctures in the skin, and the radiofrequency energy will penetrate the skin’s deep layers to heat it. Together, they will trigger collagen production, stimulate cell renewal, and contract and tighten the skin, leaving you with smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin.

After Your Procedure

Since there is no downtime with Scarlet RF microneedling, you will be able to go back to your everyday routine (work or home) immediately. You may have some redness and swelling afterward, and your skin may feel warm as if you had a mild sunburn. Fortunately, all these side effects will subside after 24 hours.

What Concerns Can Scarlet Improve?

  • Tightens skin
  • Minimizes fine lines & wrinkles
  • Reduces pore size
  • Improves skin tone & texture
  • Improves surgical & acne scarring
  • Minimizes stretch marks
  • Rebuilds collagen

I can speak about someone whom I was in a romantic relationship with who went to see Dr. Lee for a consultation and then to have two fairly significant procedures done. From the very first meeting, all the way through her recovery from both procedures, Dr. Lee and his staff were nothing but the best they could be. I was just amazed how upbeat and positive Dr. Lee and his staff made her feel every step of the way. Dr. Lee is not just a gifted, board-certified plastic surgeon with 22 years of experience who has an amazing staff of caring people. He CHANGES PEOPLE’S LIVES!! He is gifted, he is talented, he is polite, friendly, articulate and, most of all, humble. He does not brag or boast or have an ego. He has a gift and love for what he does, and it shows in how he does it with every single patient every single day. The Fort Wayne medical community is blessed and fortunate to have Dr. Lee as one of its members, and we are fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

Dr. Lee is the best doctor I have ever encountered. He cares and explains everything thoroughly, and he especially takes the time to talk and listen to his patients. He is an outstanding doctor! He does a great job at what he does!

I really appreciated the concern and personal touch of receiving a post-op phone call by both the nurse and Dr. Lee. It is comforting to know that Dr. Lee is a very talented artist whose skills tie in with his work. I absolutely love and enjoy seeing Dr. Lee’s photography displayed on the walls and in the books in his office.

Understanding the Risks

As with most procedures, there are some risks you should be aware of when having Scarlet RF Microneedling treatment. Some of the most common risks to look out for include:

  • Skin damage
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Tightness
  • Peeling
  • Dryness

Less common risks include stinging or itching when cosmetics or skin care products are applied, dark or light spots on the skin, infection, or a cold sore flare up.

Results of Your Procedure

You will notice some results immediately, but the most noticeable results will take a few months to fully show up as the collagen and elastin build up. Results from a single treatment typically last about six months to a year. During your initial consultation, one of our providers will determine a treatment protocol with the number of treatments recommended for desired results.

Many patients return to their regular daily activities immediately following a Scarlet treatment as there is minimal downtime associated with the treatment. There is little to no bleeding or sensitivity as often experienced with other microneedling treatments.

A series of treatments are usually necessary to achieve the optimal results. How many treatments you’ll need will depend on the skin concerns you have and the results you’re looking for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to expect with your Scarlet SRF treatment?

For a few hours after your treatment, redness and some swelling can be expected. Your skin may feel warm like you’ve had a mild sunburn. Redness and swelling will subside after 24 hours.

Who is a good candidate for Scarlet?

Scarlet is a safe and effective choice for almost anyone. Because it uses radiofrequency technology, which is not affected by skin color like some light-based technologies, all skin tones can safely enjoy the benefits of Scarlet treatments. Radiofrequency microneedling may be ideal for you if you want to improve mild to moderate skin laxity and desire younger-looking skin without a surgical procedure.
