Fractional Radiofrequency (RF) MicroNeedling
California Skin Institute’s medical providers now offer Radiofrequency MicroMeedling treatments at select locations. Created by Jeisys INTRAcel, this incredible new technology naturally stimulates collagen for smoother, softer skin.* This procedure addresses acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, loose skin, and uneven texture in the face, neck, and body.* Similar to traditional MicroNeedling, this new procedure can be completed in about an hour when treating the entire face. It also involves little discomfort and almost no downtime.* Patients undergoing this procedure can usually resume normal activities in less than two hours.*
How Radiofrequency Microneedling Works
Just like with traditional MicroNeedling, this procedure stimulates the body’s natural healing process by creating tiny puncture wounds in the skin.* The difference with the INTRAcel system is the added power of thermal energy. The small, insulated needles penetrate the skin quickly, depositing radiofrequency heat directly below the surface. This protects the top layer of the skin for a speedier recovery compared with traditional MicroNeedling and laser treatments, and allows your body to create collagen and elastin for smoother, rejuvenated skin.* Further, since there is minimal damage to the top layer of the skin, simply a tiny puncture, recovery time can be as short as a few hours.*
The INTRAcel system is a FDA-approved hand held device that penetrates the skin at very high speeds, reducing any pain or discomfort associated with the procedure. This unique technology is also very precise. Your California Skin Institute medical provider can vary the depth of penetration and the amount of radiofrequency deposited depending on the area and skin condition.
In short, this advanced system creates custom areas of heat injury below the top layer of skin that encourage the production of collagen in the days and weeks following treatment.
What Radiofrequency (RF) MicroNeedling Treats
RF MicroNeedling benefits a wide range of skin conditions by naturally stimulating the body’s production of collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, softer, tighter, more rejuvenated skin.* Most clients will notice significant improvements after just one RF MicroNeedling treatment, however, some clients will need multiple sessions.*
While this procedure is wonderful for improving the overall texture of the skin, it can also address more specific skin concerns, like acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, stretch marks, and large pores.*
Thanks to the versatility of this treatment, RF MicroNeedling can be used on all parts of the body, including the neck and chest for wrinkles and the stomach for loose skin. Over time the body naturally will produce more collagen and elastin in the treated area, helping skin look more youthful and full.*
Recovery after a RF MicroNeedling treatment is relatively short, with most redness and discomfort subsiding within several hours.* Of course, every client is different, and those with sensitive skin may experience discomfort a little longer. However, most individuals can resume their regular skin care and makeup routine after two hours.*
