If you’re looking to refresh your face from wrinkles, fine lines or acne scars, you’ll come across a variety of treatments including microneedling and laser treatments. Microneedling works by causing minimal damage to the skin to boost the body’s natural healing properties. Lasers work the same way but accomplish this below the skin with highly targeted radio frequencies.
Both of these treatments will work wonders on your skin on their own, but just think of how much your skin will improve by combining these techniques together.
MacMed Spa is proud to offer INTRAcel™, a revolutionary way to combine microneedling and laser treatments which result in younger, more vibrant looking skin.
What is INTRAcel™?
INTRAcel™ uses three different techniques at once: microneedling, radiofrequency (RF) treatment and fractional treatment to treat the medium and lower parts of the dermis. Specialized insulated microneedles penetrate the skin while RF waves are used to heat up the cells.
The combination of the microneedling and the heat from the laser provide enough trauma for the body to begin the process of healing itself, but not enough trauma for it to be overly uncomfortable for you. You feel only slight pressure and minimal pain during the procedure while your body begins producing new collagen.
What Does INTRAcel™ Help Treat?
Minor skin conditions such as acne scars and enlarged pores are just a couple of the things INTRAcel™ helps with. Other skin conditions include:
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Sagging Skin
- And more
What is the Procedure Like?
The INTRAcel™ process begins with the application of a topical numbing cream. This ensures that your procedure will be as quick and painless as possible. During treatment, we will use the machine to target the trouble spots on your face. Patients describe the feeling as pressure with a slight hint of pain.
Once the procedure is over, we will go over the best ways to take care of your face after treatment. You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated areas, and it’s best to avoid prolonged direct exposure to the sun and harsh moisturizers.
When looking for the right treatment for your face, you may be undecided between microneedling and laser treatments. Get the best of both worlds with INTRAcel™! Call and set up a consultation with a member of the Mac Med Spa team today!
