Is time and gravity taking a noticeable toll on your face, despite your careful skincare regime?
If you’d love to achieve a subtle tightening of your face; a youthful lift and say goodbye to some of those fine lines and wrinkles, then INTRAcel Light at Cosmetic Doctor is an ideal treatment for you.
INTRAcel has been hailed as the future of skin rejuvenation, as it produces remarkable results and is clinically proven to tighten and resurface skin without the need for invasive or aggressive procedures.
What is the Difference between INTRAcel and INTRAcel Light?
There are essentially two treatment applications of INTRAcel available to patients at Cosmetic Doctor – fractional RF microneedling™ (FRM) and Non-invasive Superficial RF Rejuvenation (SRR), or INTRAcel Light.
With regular INTRAcel, micro needles are used, but with INTRAcel Light, electrodes rather than micro-needles are used to push radio frequency energy through the surface of the skin.
It’s less invasive than regular INTRAcel which makes INTRAcel Light ideal for thin, delicate, skin around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the lips (smoker’s lines).
During the treatment electrodes are passed over your skin which release radio frequency heat energy into the outer layers of skin (epidermis).
INTRAcel Light uses Superficial Radio Frequency Rejuvenation to treat problem areas of the epidermis, anywhere on the face or neck.
INTRAcel Light is a terrific option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their skin but who don’t fancy a more aggressive treatment. INTRAcel Light is a great introduction to effective skin rejuvenation for those who are a bit nervous, as it’s non-invasive and pain-free.
How does INTRAcel Light Work?
Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of firm, healthy skin. As we age, the rate of collagen and elastin production slows down, which is why our faces begin to sag and lines become etched in areas where muscles move repeatedly.
This leads to dull, drooping skin; winkles become etched around the eyes and mouth (repeated muscle movement in these areas affects the overlying skin) and the texture of our skin changes from dewy and firm to crêpey and lax.
INTRAcel Light is perfect for treating delicate skin that is showing signs of ageing, as the radio frequency delivered via the electrodes applies heat energy into the dermis which immediately promotes collagen and elastin production.
INTRAcel Light has 49 tiny electrodes which are applied to your skin to deliver a controlled level of radio-frequency. You won’t require any anaesthetic gel for this treatment; and the sensation is that of a slight warmth.
What areas can be treated with INTRAcel Light?
INTRAcel Light is effective for treating:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loss of elasticity
- Poor skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
- Red veins
INTRAcel Light Treatment Details
The number of treatments required on any area of concern are usually between two and four. The procedure takes only 20 minutes or so; no topical anaesthetic is needed as patients tolerate the procedure very well.
You may have a little redness or puffiness just after treatment, but you can expect full recovery after a couple of hours, and Dr. Fay will advise you on how to care for your skin with appropriate sun screen.
Your course of INTRAcel Light treatments should provide lasting effects for around six months, after which time Cosmetic Doctor recommend a booster treatment to maintain results.
