Intracel is the latest treatment trend catching on in London. It is on everyone’s lips and is the latest in non-surgical rejuvenation procedures. It works by resurfacing and tightening lax skin. It is an innovative technology which can reduce the signs of ageing, minimise lines and wrinkles, treat open pores and even correct acne scarring.
Cosmeticdoctor is the first official site to offer Intracel treatments in Ireland. Intracel is a radiofrequency treatment which delivers heat energy to the dermis targeting the collagen bundles to contract and tighten and stimulate the production of new collagen. Because Intracel stimulates new collagen production, it can result in tighter and rejuvenated skin.
What makes it so special, is that it uses tiny insulated micro-needles delivers the energy to the collagen producing cells directly. In addition these insulated needles protect the surface of the skin from damage. It can treat fine lines and wrinkles even in delicate areas such as the upper lip and eye area. The needles penetrate at different depths depending on the treated area i.e. eyes, cheeks etc, meaning that healthy skin is left up damaged causing minimal pain and discomfort.
Your skin is made up of three layers. First and foremost there is the epidermis, then the dermis and finally the subcutaneous tissue.
Radiofrequency works by heating your skin’s dermal layer to target the collagen producing cells called fibroblasts. These fibroblasts results in new collagen production, the result is an improvement in skin texture, tone and laxity.
