Facial lifting and tightening with Secret RF by Cutera

What’s the secret to tighter and better looking skin? Can one treatment really target fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and photoaging at the same time as tightening, with minimal discomfort or recovery time? As we age the quality of our skin diminishes. It becomes duller and more sallow and loses its vibrancy and elasticity. Sun damage causes discoloration and wrinkling, while the breaking down of collagen causes everything to sag. Demand for treatments which improve skin texture and appearance without significant downtime are on the rise. I went to visit London skin guru Renée Lapino in The Renée Lapino Clinic at Neville’s in Belgravia to try Cutera’s Secret RF treatment and find out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this week’s Tweak of the Week, I went to The Renée Lapino Clinic in Belgravia, London, to visit medically-trained facialist Renee Lapino and try out Secret RF, a novel fractional radiofrequency micro-needling treatment from Cutera. Designed to revitalise, refresh, tighten and lift the skin and address the common signs of ageing, the treatment uses micro-needles to allow the practitioner to deliver energy at various depths, so it can be tailored to each individual’s needs. By combining the two technologies – RF and micro-needling – Secret RF gives a double whammy when it comes boosting collagen and elastin. And it’s suitable for all skin types. I wanted to find out how effective it was and if we could really put that old adage of “no pain, no gain” to rest.

About Alice Hart-Davis

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
