INTRAcel skin tightening treatment is gaining quite a following, with many celebrities undergoing treatment to achieve glowing, smoother and tighter skin, naturally. Anna Friel is one celebrity to have undergone treatment to fight saggy skin.
Since bodyvie launched INTRAcel in October 2012 patients have been amazed by the transformation in their skin, particularly in the tightening and lifting of jowls and neck and improvement of crepey skin around the eyes.
INTRAcel combines two well established techniques, micro needling and radio frequency (RF). Following application of a topical anaesthetic, a 1cm/sq head with 49 micro needles creates multiple micro-punctures to the skin and delivers radio frequency (fractional RF thermolysis) into the deep layers.
The fractional RF microneedling™ technology is an innovative design that uniquely treats the target area through rapid penetration of specially designed insulated micro-needles without causing extensive damage to the epidermis.
Through the action of the microneedles, a tiny column is created that facilitates healing and brings about a growth factor that develops the mechanism of natural recovery with the effect being similar to that of peeling, but with minimal impact on the epidermis. At the same time it emits a high-tensioned RF pulse onto the target area inside the skin.
The fractional RF thermolysis is applied directly to this area and selectively degenerates the collagen fibres between the superficial dermis and muscle band, resulting in the fibres immediately dwindling and thus promoting the construction of new collagen through a stimulus of the fibroblasts.
It is the reduction in collagen and elastin, essential structural proteins of the skin, which largely contribute to the ageing process, so by reversing this and stimulating collagen production we are able to effectively restore a youthful appearance.
INTRAcel restores skin youth by:
- Stimulating collagen production
- Improving the tone & texture of skin, resulting in a smoother and younger appearance.
- Tightening the skin to reduce sagging, wrinkles and fine lines.
- Improving stretch marks and scarring.
- Improving acne scarring.
INTRAcel treatment can help with fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, open pores, stretch marks, sagging skin, scarring and acne scarring.
At Bodyvie we tailor your treatments around individual requirements. During your consultation Dr Weber will recommend whether a course of INTRAcel is required or if fewer sessions might be suitable to achieve your desired outcome.For more information on INTRAcel treatment at Bodyvie click here.
