Cutera® Secret™ RF Microneedling in Toronto

Kingsway Dermatology & Cosmetic Centre is proud to offer cutting-edge medical and cosmetic dermatology services to patients in Toronto. Our experienced dermatologists and trained staff provide the highest quality care to help each of our clients achieve their aesthetic goals.

One of the most innovative treatments we offer is Cutera® Secret™ RF Microneedling, which takes traditional microneedling a step further for even more effective results.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy (CIT), is used to treat the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars, rough skin texture, or uneven skin tone. A microneedling device uses tiny needles to create small, strategic wounds in the skin, which trigger your body’s natural healing response, stimulating new cell growth and promoting collagen production. This results in smoother, firmer, healthier skin.

But what makes RF microneedling different?

Traditional Microneedling versus RF Microneedling in Toronto

Traditional Microneedling vs. RF Microneedling

At Kingsway, we’re pleased to offer Cutera® Secret™ RF Microneedling. RF microneedling combines the precision of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, delivering pulses of energy along with tiny needle punctures. This energy is sent deep into the dermis via these controlled wounds to amplify the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, making it a more effective treatment than microneedling alone.

Secret™ RF is also an extremely customizable treatment, as both the needle depth and the amount of RF energy used can be adjusted for each individual patient’s needs. As Secret™ RF can address deeper skin concerns that traditional microneedling, many patients have found that the results of Secret™ RF have reduced their reliance on other treatments like dermal fillers.

Dr. Fisher has been my dermatologist since I had cancer 12 years ago. What knowledge and what kindness! She explains everything in details, using at times analogies and drawings to educate patients. This is going beyond the call of duty to help patients understand their conditions. She is a great professor with considerable expertise in her field. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist and as a human being.

I went in to Kingsway Dermatology for a consultation and I was so happy with the appointment. Nadia was my consultant and she was so helpful and positive. She answered all my questions before I even asked them and she really listened to all my concerns. I felt like she really just got it. Probably one of the best consultations I've had. I really recommend talking to her for your consultation.The clinic is very clean and the staff was very friendly. The location is very easy to get to. There's also paid parking above ground and underground.

I cannot say enough good things about Kingsway Dermatology and Dr Ruppel. The results I get from my treatments with Dr R are second-to-none and she always has a way of making me feel incredibly at ease and comfortable. She’s a wonderful clinician and has an absolutely lovely bedside manner. She will go the extra mile to make sure you don’t feel rushed, that you feel welcome and that you’re more than just a number. I would recommend her twenty times over and I’m just thrilled that I found such a caring knowledgeable dermatologist. The clinic staff are also lovely, friendly and welcoming. Highly, highly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does RF Microneedling Treat?

Secret™ RF Microneedling improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and more. It can also address skin texture and tone. When you come to Kingsway for your consultation, we’ll get to know a bit more about your skin concerns and medical history to determine if Secret™ RF Microneedling is right for you.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Secret RF Microneedling?

Secret™ RF Microneedling is an extremely versatile treatment that can be used to treat large areas of the body, like the abdomen, arms, knees, and thighs, along with smaller and more delicate areas, such as the areas around the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Does RF Microneedling Hurt?

Secret™ RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment with only slight discomfort, although some patients have said it is somewhat more uncomfortable than traditional microneedling, as RF microneedling delivers heat energy alongside the tiny needle punctures. However, topical anesthetics like lidocaine can be used to minimize discomfort during RF microneedling.

Does RF Microneedling Require Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with Secret™ RF Microneedling, but you may experience mild redness and minor swelling immediately after treatment. This should wear off within the first 24 hours, but it may take a little longer if your treatment was deeper. Most patients return to their normal activities within a day.

When Will I See Results?

Results from Secret™ RF Microneedling aren’t immediate. Although initial results are noticeable, optimal results will be visible about three months after your last RF microneedling session. This is because collagen production continues gradually long after your treatment, so your results will continue to improve over time, although not forever; regular maintenance treatments may be required.

How Many Treatments Will I need?

The number of treatments you will need will depend on your individual skin concerns. At your consultation, our Kingsway dermatologists will tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs, and we’ll be able to give you a better idea of how many treatments you will require to achieve the results you’re looking for.
