INTRAcel is causing quite a stir in the beauty market, and when you see the results you’ll understand why.
Exclusive to the Cosmetic Doctor at Slievemore Clinic, Dublin, this treatment can ONLY be performed by a doctor, and it is a huge leap forward in non-surgical cosmetic treatment.
Exclusive to Cosmetic Doctor in Ireland
INTRAcel adds a totally new level of treatment outcome to patients without the need for invasive treatment/surgery, and Cosmetic Doctor is proud to be the only clinic currently offering the treatment to their patients.
Combining microneedling with radiofrequency and fractional resurfacing, this advanced and quick procedure offers treatment for sagging skin, jowls, lines and wrinkles, large and open pores, and acne scarring, with little downtime and remarkable results.
How does INTRAcel work?
Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling uses an electric current to cause selective heating in the deep dermis, leaving columns of tissue between the needles undamaged.
As the energy is delivered below the surface of the skin, there isn’t any topical damage at all, and all of the energy is used to target the areas where the needs are inserted.
This energy results in a shortening and tightening of the collagen fibres and construction of new collagen, by the stimulation of fibroblasts. INTRAcel is different from laser, as electro energy is transformed into thermal energy.
The INTRAcel needles are insulated all the way down the needle, except for the final 0.3mm at the very tip, where the radiofrequency energy is emitted. This energy transfers from the needle point into the dermis to cause coagulation and denaturalization of the surrounding dermis.
The Radio Frequency (RF) energy is only released in the dermis, eliminating any heat delivery into the epidermis (skin surface).
The Treatment-What to Expect
A topical anaesthetic is applied about 60 minutes prior to treatment to make the procedure more comfortable.
Doctor Fay will then apply the device to the skin surface; she has control over the release of the needles which then deliver radiofrequency energy in short bursts, while the head of the device moved systematically across the area to be treated.
Immediately after treatment a calming, anti-inflammatory cream is applied.
What does INTRAcel treatment involve?
It will depend on the patient and skin issues, but Dr. Fay generally suggests a course of 3-5 treatments, about 6-8 weeks apart. It is possible to achieve positive results after only one INTRAcel treatment, but most people respond better after 2-3 treatments. This can be determined during your consultation.
Downtime is minimal and redness should only last for 24-36 hours.
