I am always so intrigued with new treatments/procedures on the market. I recently read about the Cutera Secret PRO microneedling treatment. It is supposed to be an amazing, highly customizable skin revitalization and resurfacing treatment.
I decided to go ahead and book an appointment at Gotham Plastic Surgery in NYC. What really got me in the door was that, unlike most lasers, Secret PRO RF microneedling can be used on all skin tones, in any season. Usually, I schedule any intense facial treatment in January, when I know I will have some time off from the sun. So I really liked the fact that I could start right away at the beginning of the summer!
The Secret PRO treats a wide range of skin conditions, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, burn scars and stretch marks I was really interested in the claim that this treatment would revitalize my skin and would address superficial aging while also stimulating collagen for a smoother more radiant healthier-looking skin.
Secret PRO Benefits:
The Gotham Plastic Surgery office was fabulous. They explained the treatment to me and I met my Medical Aesthetician, Jill. She was really lovely and talked me through the entire process. She applied topical numbing cream and after about 45 minutes, we moved to the treatment room and she showed me the Secret PRO machine and answered the questions that I had. She then also gave me a stress ball to hold because I was a little nervous.
The microneedling treatment was a bit uncomfortable at first but honestly, Jill just told me what area she was doing, how much more we needed to do in each section and it was really very calming to know step by step what was happening. I have been for many many laser treatments in the past few years and each time, its just so unnerving having that laser come at you without connecting to the person treating you. I felt so comfortable with Jill. Once the Secret PRO was finished I really did not feel any pain. I was given an ice pack but I did not need it so much. My face was only a little bit red and Jill put sunscreen on me and within 20 minutes, my skin was much less red and really glowing.
This photo was taken mid treatment. The entire process took about 45 minutes.
It is recommended that you do 1-4 treatments, depending on your own personal goals. So far it has been about a week for me and I am so happy with my results. My skin is much smoother. The fine lines under my eyes are less pronounced and I do see where I had some sun damage on my forehead looking much lighter. I am going to see how my skin looks in the next couple of weeks and I might try one more treatment in a month from now. I was that impressed.
I decided to show you this before and after since so many people wrote in asking for ways to get rid of the lines around and above their mouth. Look at this amazing transformation after just 1 Secret Pro treatment.
And as for my after image..this was taken on Father’s Day, just 3 days after the treatment..you can really see the glow from the laser here..
For local readers, if you are interested in learning more about this Secret PRO treatment, I would contact Jill at Gotham Plastic Surgery (646) 791-3066. If you are outside the NY Metro area, you can easily find a provider at www.cutera.com.
