RF Microneedling: The Next Level of Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as microneedling, is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to increase collagen production and revitalize the skin’s appearance. Now, we can combine the power of radio frequency technology with micro needling to rejuvenate skin at a deeper level.
The Intensif by EndyMedTM is the first FDA-cleared, non-insulated motorized microneedle RF technology on the market today and works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through a set of gold plated micro-needles. These needles create tiny punctures in the skin and as RF energy is emitted into the skin’s tissues, it triggers collagen production while also helping break down scars. Intensif RF Microneedling is used to:
- Treat acne scars
- Reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Improve the texture of the skin
- Rejuvenate the skin with minimal downtime
- Achieve smoother and tighter skin
- Preserve skin’s youthful glow
- Reduce pore size
One of the biggest advantages of this technology is that it can be used on any skin type and color. Another advantage is that we can customize the treatment, including the depth of treatment, to initiate the right level of skin remodeling.
Since the entire Intensif RF Microneedling treatment is more powerful than a traditional micro needling treatment, it requires fewer passes per treatment session.
The treatment session itself is performed in under 30 minutes and begins with the application of a topical anesthetic cream. You may notice some redness and tightness after treatment. This subsides in a few days. We will recommend a topical skin regimen to support the skin’s healing process.
Some patients notice their skin glows after one treatment and then see progressive improvements for up to 6 months after the first treatment.
Most patients need a series of at least 3 to 5 sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart. Intensif RF Microneedling can be used with other complementary procedures to help you maintain a revitalized and rejuvenated look.
