Exploring The Benefits Of INTRAcel RF Microneedling

Microneedling has become one of the most popular treatments around, endorsed by celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt. The introduction of radiofrequency (RF) energy levelled up the treatment by increasing collagen synthesis and improving skin tightening results. INTRAcel RF Microneedling can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin texture, scarring and active acne. 


What Is INTRAcel RF Microneedling? 

Unlike traditional Microneedling, which solely relies on the mechanical action of tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, INTRAcel adds the element of RF energy to enhance results. During an INTRAcel session, a specialised device equipped with ultra-fine needles penetrates the skin’s surface at precise depths, creating controlled micro-injuries. Simultaneously, RF energy is delivered through the needles into the deeper layers of your skin, heating the tissue and stimulating collagen production. This dual-action approach triggers your skin’s natural healing process, leading to significant improvements in skin texture, tone and firmness. 


INTRAcel RF Microneedling is highly versatile and can effectively treat many skin complaints, including acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Additionally, the adjustable depth and intensity of the needles allow for customised treatments tailored to your unique needs. While some redness and mild swelling may occur post-procedure, downtime is minimal compared to more invasive treatments, making the treatment a popular choice for skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing purposes. 


Treating Acne Scars With RF Microneedling

Acne scars develop as the body’s response to severe or prolonged inflammation from acne lesions. Inflammation triggers the release of enzymes that can damage collagen, a crucial protein providing the skin with structure and elasticity. The breakdown of collagen fibres in the skin’s deeper layers leads to dysregulated tissue repair. This can result in the formation of excess scar tissue, causing raised or hypertrophic scars, or depressions in the skin, leading to atrophic or depressed scars.


RF microneedling addresses both surface irregularities and underlying structural issues. The microneedling device breaks down scar tissue and stimulates the production of new, healthy collagen strands. This helps to improve the overall texture and smoothness of the skin. The controlled thermal energy delivered via radiofrequency stimulates further collagen remodelling and tightening of the skin. This helps to fill in depressed acne scars and improve the overall appearance of the skin’s texture. Furthermore, the device can precisely target deeper layers of the skin, making it particularly effective for treating severe acne scars. INTRAcel treatments can also be used to diminish the appearance of other forms of scarring and imperfections, such as stretch marks. 


What To Expect From An INTRAcel Treatment


Will the treatment hurt?

During the procedure, you may experience a tingling sensation as the RF Microneedling device penetrates your skin’s surface and delivers thermal energy. We apply topical anaesthesia before the treatment and a cooling mask after the treatment to minimise discomfort. 


Are there any side effects?

You may notice some redness and swelling post-procedure but this usually subsides within 24 hours. It’s essential to follow aftercare instructions provided by The Lovely Clinic, such as applying SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure. 


When will I see the results from RF Microneedling?

Results from INTRAcel treatments are typically gradual and may become noticeable within a few weeks as collagen production increases and the skin rejuvenates. The longevity of results can vary depending on your individual skin conditions and lifestyle factors, but they generally last for 6 – 12 months. 


How many treatments will I need?

We typically recommend 3 treatments spaced one month apart, followed by a maintenance treatment every 6 – 12 months. The exact number of sessions you need may differ based on the severity of your skin concerns and your treatment goals. We will create a personalised plan for you during your consultation.
