LSU Plastic Surgery is proud to offer Secret PRO, a skin revitalization treatment that uniquely combines two proven technologies - fractional CO2 and radio frequency microneedling – to safely and effectively treat all layers of the skin.
Secret PRO uses radiofrequency microneedling, sometimes combined with CO2 laser energy, to treat a variety of skin conditions. In just one session, this technology can leave a noticeable impact on the look and feel of your skin. The CO2 laser addresses the problems on the surface of the skin, while the RF microneedling goes deeper below the surface to tackle harder to treat conditions.
Secret PRO is designed to give you the greatest flexibility by offering four signature treatment options, optimized based on skin concerns, desired downtime, and ideal treatment method. The procedures can be customized based on your needs, whether you are looking for prejuvenation to keep your skin looking young or for a more corrective treatment to reverse the signs of aging.
Secret PRO comes with a range of customizable treatments that include:
The Secret PRO Refine treatment is an innovative RF microneedling treatment that provides fast and comfortable treatments that safely and effectively treat multiple skin concerns on the face and body for patients with all skin tones, all year long.
This treatment series improves some of the most visible signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, stretch marks, acne scars, and many other skin concerns. This treatment is ideal for skin revitalization of the face, neck, decollate, knees, and other body areas.
Secret PRO Ultra-light is a CO2 gentle laser micro peel treatment that safely and effectively improves your skin tone and texture by gently resurfacing a thin outer layer of your skin. This treatment provides quality results that are tailored to your skin’s specific conditions. You’ll enjoy healthier-looking, refreshed skin, quickly and easily!
Secret PRO Ultra-Light helps promote healthy skin and provides results for many common skin concerns, including; uneven skin tone and texture and overall complexion quality.
The Secret PRO Ultra treatment utilizes CO2 laser energy to revitalize severely sun-damaged skin. The procedure is designed to deliver safe, effective, fractional skin resurfacing by treating multiple skin layers at the same time with precision and control. This single treatment provides long-lasting results customized to address your needs.
This treatment reduces sun damage, improves skin texture, and promotes collagen production to reduce the appearance of scars and crepey skin through fractional skin resurfacing.
The Secret PRO Revive treatment combines CO2 laser energy with radiofrequency microneedling to treat an incredible range of skin concerns all at once. While CO2 laser technology targets the outermost layers of the skin, the RF energy reaches into the deeper dermal layers. With the unique combination of these two technologies, your treatment can be customized to maximize the results of your specific aesthetic needs.
The combination of two technologies gives the Secret PRO Revive treatment the power to treat a wide range of conditions simultaneously. While the fractional RF microneedling penetrates deeper in the skin, the fractional CO2 laser resurfaces the top layers of the skin to improve the skin’s tone and texture. This combination treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, skin texture, pore size, crepey skin, and sun-damaged skin.
Depending on the type of treatment necessary for your skin, the Secret PRO requires little to no downtime. After just one treatment session you will begin to see the results of the Secret PRO technology. To get the best results, the treatments range from 1-4 sessions, depending on your specific skin conditions and the type of Secret PRO treatment being conducted.
