At Marin Medical Aesthetics, we offer our patients a treatment that combines two incredibly effective anti-aging therapies – radiofrequency (RF) and micro-needling. The ScarLet SRF is a new non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that restores its essential components and optimized dermal health. This FDA-approved anti-aging therapy is safe and effective and delivers RF energy beneath the superficial layer of skin through specialized microneedles. The body responds by stimulating collagen production, which is the skin’s main structural protein and helps repair and tighten the skin.
The essential components of healthy, youthful skin are volumetric collagen and elastin. Scarlet releases energy below the skin, which is what makes this treatment so effective. After this treatment, patients have noticeably tightened, lifted, and plumped skin, as well as reduced wrinkles, smaller pores, and a decrease in acne scars and other blemishes on the face, body, and scalp. It is a non-invasive procedure that causes minimal discomfort with no downtime to the patient.

The Scarlet S uses micro-needling bipolar RF technology to coagulate dermal collagen and elastin fiber in the skin. Electrocoagulation helps to rejuvenate existing dermal fibers and produce new collagen and elastin fibers, which improves skin tightening and the texture of the skin.
The short pulse RF technology of the Scarlet S is a revolutionary and safe skin treatment with absolutely no downtime and no side effects. Developed by the researcher behind the Na Effect, Scarlet S is the first RF technology that uses the phenomenon of independent tissue coagulation around each microneedle electrode with short pulses of alternating bipolar signal energy. The Scarlet S is patented in America, and 70 other countries, such as Europe, Asia, Middle East, Oceania, and South America.
Na effect was first published in Scientific Reports, a journal of the Nature Publishing Group by Dr. Jongju Na. He named this discovery the “Na effect.” Na effect is the key method for the Scarlet S, the safest and most effective RF treatment. The distinguishing factor of this phenomenon is the achievement of independent tissue coagulation around each micro-needle electrode. The proven science behind the Na effect allows the Scarlet S to deliver state-of-the-art care and healing for people of all skin types and issues.
Scarlet S treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients with little to no downtime. The treatment is very comfortable and attractive to patients. More treatments give more results. We recommend 3 treatments during a year to maximize skin rejuvenation.
Scarlet S treatment takes about 20 minutes for the face and 10 minutes for the neck. The time needed for body treatment depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. The Scarlet S treatment is both time-efficient and revolutionarily effective.
No. The Scarlet S treatment doesn’t need any special preparation or follow-up regimen. Basic skin care and sunscreen are enough for aftercare. Since the Scarlet S procedure has little to no downtime, most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Rosacea patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 to 72 hours. Scarlet S is the safest treatment in the field of RF systems, with little to no downtime and no side effects. Clients are good to go immediately after treatment; there is no bleeding or sensitivity as experienced with other microneedle treatments.
Unlike LASER treatments, Scarlet S is safe and works on all skin types: I, II, III, IV, V, and VI. Scarlet S coagulates total dermal layers to rejuvenate total skin without any pigmentation (P.I.H.). Scarlet S technology is based on electric signals, which doesn’t affect skin color.
Scarlet S targets scalp skin tightening, face skin tightening and lifting, double chin, neck, and body skin tightening. The Short pulse Radio Frequency technology of the Scarlet S was recently clinically proven to improve rosacea, acne, Vulgaris, melasma, and mottled telangiectasia. It is very safe, and no rebounded with lower recurrence. And needless to say, the Scarlet S improves common issues such as skin texture, pores, photo-aging, scars, and striae.
The Scarlet S uses minimally invasive micro-needle electrode technology, which directly manages the dermis with precisely controlled RF energy and varying treatment depth. Treatment depth, power, and mode are adjustable by the user. This procedure delivers the most direct and accurate energy into the skin without any thermal damage on the skin surface.

Visible tightening results come immediately, and the results of dermal remodeling appear over time in the course of new collagen, elastin fibers regenesis, and vascular rejuvenation. For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in 2 to 3 months. The results can last 6 months to a year following a single treatment, depending on your skin condition and the aging process.
No. Most patients report experiencing little to no pain. The Scarlet S delivers energy to the skin in a time interval of fewer than 300 milliseconds (0.3 sec). It is the shortest heating time among all RF devices. The micro-needle electrodes are extremely thin and work with gentle pressure and slow speed technology, developed through numerous clinical trials. Scarlet S presents patients with maximum results and maximum comfort.
