What is a Secret Laser?
The Secret Laser is a skin rejuvenating treatment that utilizes two medical modalities, radiofrequency (RF) energy and micro-needling. This treatment helps improve skin tone, texture, and appearance and helps delay early indications of aging, like skin laxity and wrinkles. In addition, the Secret Laser treatment has a mechanism for tissue coagulation and hemostasis that aids collagen remodeling through stimulation. As a result, the treatment leaves you with a rejuvenated, lifted, and taut skin appearance, making you look younger than your actual age. However, its main forte focuses on diminishing pores and scars or lesions.
Many individuals come to our clinic, AMOA640 Skin Clinic, with textured skin and skin aging and laxity issues. According to peer-reviewed journals, these same issues are the most frequent topics in the field of cosmetology. It includes rough and dry skin, fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. If you didn’t invest in a proper skincare routine when you were younger, you are prone to having severe skin laxity issues and textured skin. Many journals and articles suggest that it is caused by sun damage, pollution, hygiene, acne, and inadequate water intake. As a result, these factors influence your skin appearance and condition, and neglecting them may cost you later. Thus, many board-certified dermatologists suggest using sunscreen daily and reapplying at least once when outside for optimal protection and following a basic skincare routine comprising a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer.
However, despite your efforts and initiatives to take care of your skin, there are skin problems that cannot simply be treated with a skincare routine. Hence, doctors have proposed varying facial treatments with their respective forte. Some procedures help with acne and scarring, while others help with collagen stimulation for skin lifting and rejuvenating effects. Two of the famous medical modalities for this are radiofrequency and micro-needling. Micro-needling is a type of Micro-needle Therapy System (MTS) that penetrates the skin’s surface to the underlying layer for optimal product absorption. Likewise, this method aids in treating impurities and acne. On the other hand, radiofrequency (RF) works best as a catalyst in collagen production stimulation to create firmer bonds and help it produce more actively. As a result, skin appears flawless and volumized.
Many clinical trials have proven the effectiveness and safety of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) for skin rejuvenation. However, new studies show that combining the two methods manifests excellent results and generates far better outcomes. Additionally, it is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that you may use as a monthly skincare routine to remove prolonged acne scars and diminish pore appearance with the bonus of skin lifting. Thus, our board-certified doctor highly recommends the Secret Laser treatment to patients who want the K-pop glass skin appearance.
How does Secret Laser work?
The Secret Laser treatment is Korea’s top-notch state-of-the-art technology that utilizes both radiofrequency (RF) and micro-needling systems to alleviate scars and skin aging issues. It is a facial treatment developed by Cutera that addresses acne scars and skin aging issues for a supple and even skin tone. It works by transmitting precise, controlled radiofrequency energy at different levels and depths to targeted areas, including the underlying layer for collagen stimulation, through micro-needling. In addition, it helps remodel the collagen in the body and works as a trigger to kick-start the body to produce new collagen more actively. It uses a 25-pin or 64-pin, depending on the depth and area to be treated, and an adjustable penetration depth.
At the AMOA640 Skin Clinic, you must have a face-to-face consultation with our board-certified doctor beforehand for safety measures. In this process, the doctor will analyze your face thoroughly and determine whether the Secret Laser treatment is the most appropriate treatment for your skin issues. Likewise, they may suggest other facial treatments you can incorporate with the Secret Laser treatment for the best outcome for your skin.
Once you have the doctor’s approval, a licensed technician will escort you to one of our treatment rooms to prep your skin because skin prepping is the most substantial step in all facial treatments. This process will help remove excess dirt and make-up on the face that may influence the treatment’s effectiveness and safety. Afterward, the technician will use a topical numbing cream to help alleviate any discomfort during the treatment. Then, the technician will use the Secret Laser handpiece to administer the treatment. Please note that the treatment last from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your skin severity and session. Lastly, they will use post-treatment creams and sunscreen for optimal skin protection against sun damage.

The Secret Laser is a superior skin rejuvenating treatment that utilizes two medical modalities: radiofrequency energy and micro-needling, which you may typically see in separate treatments in other skin clinics. In addition, the lifting effects of the procedure offer promising results, making it an excellent non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative treatment to surgical facelifts. It has no risks of hyperpigmentation and has less discomfort with little downtime. Thus, the treatment is most appropriate for individuals in their mid-twenties yearning to delay the early indications of aging. Nevertheless, please note that we only administer this to consenting individuals unless the doctor says otherwise.
Also, unlike other skin rejuvenating and resurfacing treatments, the Secret Laser penetrates deep into the lower dermis that helps minimize the damage on the skin’s surface. According to a clinical result that tested the efficacy of the combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency (RF) in treating skin aging issues, the data has shown positive results. It concluded that both modalities are safe and effective skin rejuvenation methods with no adverse effects and have better results when combined with other lifting treatments.
The results are immediate, but the best outcome is seen in three to six months, depending on your body’s reaction to the trigger. Additionally, the doctor recommends doing it in three to five sessions for the best result, but you may use it as maintenance. Since it has minimal downtime, you may also experience redness, flushing, and a slight tingling sensation a few hours after the treatment, but it will immediately subside within a day or two.
