Radiofrequency is one of the most utilized devices when it comes to tightening the skin and promoting collagen production. Now, the newest version of radiofrequency combines microneedling to achieve additional collagen stimulation for firmer, plumper, and dewy skin. Intracel Radiofrequency skin tightening uses the brilliant combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to treat textural and tonal imperfections on the skin. It helps remove unwanted and leftover scars from acne breakouts, it helps lighten superficial hyperpigmentation, it stimulates the hyaluronic acid levels in the skin to help with better hydration, and it helps with lifting and firming the tissues simultaneously.
Intracel Radiofrequency skin tightening works by delivering tiny micro-punctures to the skin while also delivering peaks of thermal heat. The microneedling stamps creates epidermal damage to help promote exfoliation while the radiofrequency energy heats up the collagen cells within the dermal layer of the skin. The thermal heating in the dermis creates a controlled injury to said collagen cells, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Once the collagen and elastin fibers begin to regenerate and multiply, the skin’s appearance starts to appear more youthful, glowing and tighter. This procedure is great at improving jawline definition, providing lifting and smoothing of fine lines around the eyes and forehead, and can help lift and tighten the cheek bone area to help rejuvenate the wrinkles and folds around the mouth. It can also be done on the neck, chest and hands to help with signs of aging and skin rejuvenation.
This skin tightening procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour, and does require specific post-procedure instructions. Once the treatment has been completed, clients will feel a warm sensation on their skin which feels similar to that of a sunburn. Clients could potentially see tiny micro-punctures of where the microneedling stamps were made, however these tiny bumps should subside within a couple of hours. The warm sensation is felt for approximately 24-48 hours post treatment, which includes minor redness, swelling, and potential tightness or dryness. It is important during this period that clients keep their skin hydrated and moist to help promote faster healing. For the next 5-7 days clients will experience darkening of the skin which will soon begin to subside once the skin has completed the desquamation process.
Intracel Radiofrequency skin tightening results vary per client as everyone’s skin and collagen synthesis is different. Typically, results can last 6 months after a series has been completed, however certain clients say results have lasted much longer! Collagen production takes roughly 60-90 days to fully regenerate and therefore the treatment effects are continuously improving. Microneedling and radiofrequency series are anywhere between 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Clients who are looking to treat specific concerns and issues may require a more strict protocol in order to achieve their skin goals. This technology is effective for all skin types and ethnicities, however darker skin tones should consult a skin care professional before undergoing any treatment that involves energy and heat. For those clients who are prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, low settings should be used for their first treatment and can slowly increase as the desired results are achieved.
