What Is Scarlet SRF?
Scarlet SRF is a cosmetic microneedling skin treatment used to tighten skin and combat signs of aging. Among its many uses, Scarlet SRF is most commonly used for:
- Rebuilding collagen
- Treating acne and acne scarring
- Firming and tightening the skin
- Improving the look of fine lines and creases
- Shrinking pores
- Promoting more even skin tone
Scarlet SRF treatments can be performed on various parts of the face, neck, and body, depending on your needs. Patients who opt for this skin treatment enjoy smoother, more even skin tone and texture and a more radiant complexion.
How Does Scarlet SRF Work?
Microneedling is a commonly used aesthetic procedure. Tiny needles are used to puncture the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process. Through this process, collagen and elastin production increases.
Scarlet SRF uses microneedles combined with short-pulsed radiofrequency, which works underneath the skin’s surface to restore the essential components of smooth, healthy skin. The technology in Scarlet SRF promotes the production of two of the most important proteins for skin health: collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are both naturally produced in the body. Along with the many other functions of these proteins, collagen firms and plumps skin, while elastin makes skin strong and elastic. As time goes on and you get older, the production of both proteins begins to decline, causing noticeable changes in your skin.
With Scarlet SRF and its innovative technology, you can receive the benefits of this treatment without having to worry about any visible damage to the surface of the skin.
What You Could Expect During Your Scarlet SRF Skin Tightening Treatment
On the day of your Scarlet SRF appointment, we’ll begin by cleansing your skin and applying a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable throughout treatment. Once you’re sufficiently numbed and we’ve properly calibrated the Scarlet SRF machine to your needs, we can begin.
As we perform your treatment, we’ll move the wand on the Scarlet SRF machine throughout the target area, allowing the machine to reach every spot. Depending on the size of the area and how many areas we’re treating, sessions typically take 20 to 60 minutes.
After your treatment is complete, we’ll provide aftercare instructions, and you’ll be free to return to your daily routine.

Scarlet SRF — Frequently Asked Questions
When you have questions regarding Scarlet SRF and what you could expect, we’re happy to address them. Below, we’ve answered some of the questions patients most commonly ask.
Is There Any Downtime After a Scarlet SRF Treatment?
There is no downtime after a session of Scarlet SRF. Most patients return to their daily activities, taking special care to avoid sun exposure in the days after treatment. We can provide tips to help minimize any discomfort and promote quick healing.
When Will I See Results After a Scarlet SRF Anti-Aging Treatment?
Because of how the procedure works, you shouldn’t expect to see results immediately after your treatment. In the days after your session, the benefits of the radiofrequency microneedling slowly begin to take effect, working to repair the skin and produce more collagen and elastin.
Patients gradually see changes within the skin over the two to three months following a session. You can expect to see final results in the month or two following your final treatment.
How Many Sessions of Scarlet SRF Will I Need?
The number of sessions we recommend depends on your skin, your skin concerns, and your desired outcome. We regularly recommend a minimum of three to four treatments with one to three months between sessions to give you the best results.
How Long Do the Results of Scarlet SRF Last?
Results of Scarlet SRF anti-aging treatments usually last six months to a year, depending on your skin. We may suggest touch-up treatments to help prolong your results.
Is Scarlet SRF Skin Tightening Treatment Right for Me?
We encourage you to schedule a consultation to determine whether Scarlet SRF is right for you. During your appointment, we’ll ask questions, examine your areas of concern, and discuss your needs and target outcome. Based on this information, we’ll know whether Scarlet SRF can effectively improve your skin.
We can create a personalized treatment plan and give recommendations for other treatments you can undergo to give you the absolute best results.
