Intracel is causing a buzz with celebrities like Jennifer Aniston; the collagen boosting treatment is the most technologically advanced treatment to hit the cosmetic world in recent years and is now available in Ireland exclusively from Cosmetic Doctor at the Slievemore Clinic in Dublin.
Most Effective Anti-Aging
INTRAcel is a skin-tightening and rejuvenating system that combines the most effective minimally invasive techniques: micro-needling and radiofrequency (a type of heat). It can only be administered by a doctor.
How INTRAcel Works
Unlike lasers that have an ablative effect on the skin’s surface, INTRAcel uses conducting needles to ‘inject’ radiofrequency heat energy into the deepest layers of the skin. The needles are ultra-fine and are insulated all the way down to just before the tip.
The un-insulated area at the needle tip allows the energy to be delivered deep into the skin, essentially creating thousands of microscopic ‘wounds’. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, which is to immediately produce more collagen.
Brand New Collagen
It works because as we age our collagen production slows down more and more every year, leaving us with tired, dry old skin cells; a dull appearance and a propensity for wrinkles.
Once the collagen goes into overdrive as stimulated by the radio frequency energy, fresh, young collagen is made and our skin is plumped up and supported by the network of proteins underneath.
INTRAcel Tightens and Brightens
INTRAcel treatments can make a huge difference to the appearance of your skin; leading to tighter, firmer, brighter skin, with smaller pores. It’s effective at lifting sagging jawlines and jowls; softens wrinkles and greatly reduces acne scarring.
As the treatment can be a bit uncomfortable, Dr. Fay will use a powerful anaesthetic cream before she works on your skin-she has control of the INTRAcel device and the needles only come up in the handpiece when she triggers them.
Needles adjusted to suit areas of your Face
There are different areas on the face and body that vary in depth and fat content, so the needles can be adjusted accordingly in bony or shallow areas. Deeper needles are used on the cheeks where more fat is stored while shorter needles are on shallow parts of the face such as the nose.
When the treatment is complete, a cooling mask is applied to the face while you relax.
Immediately After the Procedure
You can’t wear make-up immediately after the procedure and your face will probably be quite red, fading to tiny marks and possible a little bruising.
For maximum impact, a series of three treatments plus use of an aftercare pack is recommended; for more details call Cosmetic Doctor on 01 685 3100.
