An innovative treatment for rejuvenated skin
Are you fed up with looking older than you feel? Wrinkles and fine lines are an unfortunate fact of ageing, at Bodyvie, we are pleased to offer the revolutionary INTRAcel microneedling treatment, designed to help reduce signs of ageing and restore a youthful appearance.
INTRAcel microneedling is an innovative and scientifically proven treatment that uses tiny insulated microneedles to penetrate the skin and create tiny columns that facilitate healing and result in natural skin recovery. Simultaneously, the clever INTRAcel system emits a high-tension radio-frequency pulse that selectively degenerates collagen fibres to stimulate the production of new collagen and deliver energy to the dermis. Unlike laser procedures or surgery, INTRAcel microneedling protects the healthy skin from damage because it only targets the layers beneath the surface of your skin.
Your Bodyvie INTRAcel treatment will begin with an in-depth consultation to help us understand your requirements and expectations. After the procedure, you will be able to resume your everyday activities immediately, but you will notice that your skin looks red and slightly puffy. This tends to go down within a few hours, after which you may notice tiny needle marks appearing as purple dots. You can expect the skin to be fully recovered within a week. Each treatment may vary from one person to another.
