Reusing RF needles
You are right to be concerned. This is not appropriate medical practice. These heads are one time use, you should be getting a sterile tip each time. Your provider is attempting to save money by reusing the tip. If you go to the Secret RF website, it states EXACTLY:"It is important to note that the consumable tips are single-use and ideally disposed of immediately post treatment."isa Vuich, MD
Replaced.... every time.
My policy is one device head per session per patient. Sometimes I go through 2 heads in one session. Secret RF is a microneedling device that I am familiar with. Yes, its better than non- energy based micro needling however if one is treating acne scars, the needles blunt very quickly, so sometime I often do a head change. Regardless, I never give consumables back to the patient (especially if there is an infection risk), regardless, this is much akin to re-using sharp needles- they go blunt! New head every time. Insist on it. As a guide the head cost price is about 18-25 Euro. Not much in the scheme of things. Dr Davin Lim
Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care, Face Lift, Fat Injections
I suggest going to a reputable facility that uses a new tip for each patient. Now some devices such as the venus viva and skinfinity and intensif have tips that can be cleaned and saved for the individual patient. I do not know what treatment you are having done. Best, Dr. Emer.
