INTRAcel is impressing doctors and dermatologists all over the world; using a technology known as fractional radiofrequency microneedling. (FRM).
INTRAcel is indicated for general tightening, textural improvement, enlarged pores, acne scars and wrinkles.
It can only be administered by a doctor and is available in Ireland exclusively through Cosmetic Doctor at the Slievemore Clinic in Dublin.
INTRAcel is Quick and Effective
As the treatment needs only topical anaesthesia, with no oozing and very little, if any bleeding, no hematoma (bruising) or major oedema (swelling) after the procedure, the entire office visit is very brief compared to many other therapies.
The needles attached to the INTRAcel device conduct radio frequency (RF) energy, which creates controlled heat injury at each treatment site, denaturing collagen without noticeable damage to the epidermis. “The needles are even smaller in diameter than the 32 gauge needle used for neurotoxin injection, so the impact to the epidermis is negligible.
Minimal Damage to Surface
INTRAcel is different from fractional lasers, which ablate or damage the skin surface; but with INTRAcel the skin barrier function is preserved.
Dr. Fay has complete control over the needles by depressing a foot pedal which allows the needles to project from the handpiece of the device. The needles have an insulated coating, and only the very tip is uncoated, to deliver the RF energy exactly where she wants the thermal energy to go; the needles are tiny so there is very little damage to the surface (epidermis) of the skin.
While the INTRAcel device was originally developed to treat acne scars, it may also be successfully used for skin tightening in rejuvenation treatments and for striae or stretchmarks on the body.
One of the great advantages of INTRAcel is that the result is very natural looking. You see great improvement but the skin does not look treated, and it can be used to treat the full face, neck and décolleté in one session because of the adjustable needle depth and energy level.
Variable needle depth allows Dr. Fay to effectively address specific issues, and treatment is individualised for each patient. It represents a whole new standard for rejuvenation and acne scarring for all skin types, with little downtime.
