What is SecretDUO?

SecretDUO is the latest upgrade on the well known SecretRF treatment- combining two technologies- Radiofrequency Microneedling “RF Microneedling” with a 1540nm non ablative Erbium Glass laser. A treatment has two parts- RF microneedling is first performed to stimulate collagen production in the deeper skin layer, followed by laser skin tightening of the superficial skin. Together, the two treatments combine to provide an effective, no downtime treatment for a variety of skin concerns such as: acne scars, pores, loose skin, facial sagging, fine lines, eye bags, cellulite and stretch marks1,2.

How does SecretDUO work?

During the process of RF microneedling, fine gold tipped needles are passed through the skin and emit radiofrequency energy, which triggers a controlled wound healing process that stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deeper layer of the skin. Next, the 1540nm non ablative Erbium Glass laser generates columns of heat in the superficial layer of the skin- causing existing collagen to contract to give a skin tightening effect. Throughout the process, the surface layer of the skin known as the epithelium is spared, leading to a quicker recovery process and lower risk of complications.

By using specialized transducers, Ulthera can precisely direct ultrasound energy to specific depths beneath the skin—namely, 4.5mm, 3mm, and 1.5mm. Focusing energy into concentrated points within the thermal coagulation zones allows temperatures under the skin to surpass 60°C.

This elevated temperature initiates a process known as neo-collagenesis in the targeted area, stimulating the production of new collagen, and reduced skin laxity, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance.

At 1.5mm

The focus at 1.5mm targets the dermis, addressing more superficial layers and areas with thinner skin, such as the forehead and temples. This effectively addresses fine lines and tightens the skin on the dermis.

At 3.0mm

The focus at 3.0mm transducers address the deep layers of the dermis, targeting the skin structure to stimulate collagen growth. Additionally, at this depth, it also targets fat.

At 4.5mm

The magic of lifting takes place at a depth of 4.5mm. Using the 4.5mm transducer, the physician can precisely target and treat the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer. The SMAS is a crucial fibrous network comprising muscle, collagen, and elastic fibres—the very layer targeted by plastic surgeons during a surgical facelift.

Frequently Asked Questions

The SecretDUO treatment takes 15-30minutes, depending on the body area treated. A typical treatment course would be monthly sessions for 3 months, followed by maintenance treatments every 2-3 months
The skin will be mildly red and tight for 2-3 days, similar to a mild sunburn. For days 3-5, the skin feels like sandpaper and may flake gently, as new collagen is being produced to renew the skin. A week after treatment, the skin appears refreshed and glowing.
Clients are advised to avoid sun exposure for a week and to use post laser recovery skincare. Retinols, AHAs/BHAs and Vitamin C serums should be stopped for 3 days prior and 7 days after a treatment.
Clients with open wounds, metallic implants should defer the treatment
Hydrafacial performed prior to SecretDUO works well to cleanse and prime the skin
