What is Scarlet Lite?
Scarlet Lite is a minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, in addition to improving skin texture and firmness. This is achieved by utilising fractional microneedle radio frequency (RF) technology to remodel the collagen and elastin in the skin.
How Does It Work?
Scarlet Lite was developed by Dr Na Jongju, Korea’s leading dermatologist, to overcome the limitations of conventional radio frequency (RF) treatments. Scarlet RF treatment works by precisely delivering RF energy into the lower layers of the dermis using microneedles.
The microneedle work head is first placed on the skin’s surface, where microneedles will then penetrate the skin. The needle penetration depth is customisable and ranges from 0.5mm to 3.5mm, depending on the target area. RF energy is then directed to the target areas to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin.
Scarlet Lite RF treatment results in improved collagen levels and remodelled dermal elastic fibres, restoring the skin’s laxity and skin tone. It softens fine lines and wrinkles, leading to a younger-looking appearance. This skin tightening procedure is also used to reduce acne scarring, pore size, eyelid and under-eye sagging, and more.
1. Micro-needle workhead is placed on the skin surface
2. Micro-needles penetrate inside of the skin
3. RF energy is directly applied to the target areas
4. Collagen and elastin regeneration process begins
Safety & Side Effects
As Scarlet Lite is a non-surgical treatment, the risks are minimal to none. Patients may experience swelling and redness after the treatment, but this will subside within the hour. Some micro-crusting (darkened skin) may occur, but it is usually resolved after 3-7 days.
In terms of pain, most patients find this treatment to be very tolerable. Topical anaesthetic and premedication will be prescribed to alleviate discomfort during the procedure. Our certified aestheticians at Privé Clinic will conduct this treatment with your safety in mind.
Benefits of Scarlet Lite
As a milder alternative to Scarlet, Scarlet Lite is a suitable option for those with sensitive skin. A lower voltage is used in Scarlet Lite, but the efficacy of the treatment remains the same. There is little to no downtime involved in this treatment, so patients can resume daily activities right after.
Scarlet Lite is an effective treatment for facial skin tightening and contouring, with improvements in skin texture observed within a few days. However, as it takes time for the body to produce collagen and elastin, the full effects gradually appear over time. Depending on the patient’s skin condition, the results generally last from 12 to 18 months.
