As you begin to age and the sun damage takes its toll, your skin can become loose, sagging and wrinkly. The neck, chest, belly, arms and knees are the common areas to show these changes. It can be depressing to look in the mirror and see the signs of aging skin – that’s when you should call La Fontaine, the premier facial rejuvenation center in Denver.
At La Fontaine Aesthetics, we are excited to offer one of the latest innovations to treat skin tone, texture, and laxity. INTRAcel RF Microneedling is a revolutionary new procedure the produces a dramatic level of skin rejuvenation.
INTRAcel RF Microneedling combines the skin tightening benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy, with the skin rejuvenating power of microneedling. This FDA-cleared method of skin tightening has been used in Europe for more than half a decade, and in Asia for even longer.
After application of topical numbing medicine this treatment is virtually pain-free. INTRAcel uses microneedling technology to deliver targeted RF energy with incredible accuracy, leaving the adjacent skin and tissue unharmed.
INTRAcel is used for skin tightening and texture-enhancing benefits in many areas including:
INTRAcel works by infusing RF energy deep into the layers of the dermis, delivering heat and stimulating collagen production at the deepest levels of the skin. This stimulation causes skin to begin to firm, reducing skin laxity to treat the visible signs of aging.
INTRAcel’s microneedling action places tiny punctures in the skin, calling on your body’s immune system to come to the rescue and create new skin cells. This stimulates collagen production, further blurring the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and reducing pigmentation issues.
A topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure your comfort during your session of INTRAcel RF Microneedling. Once the anesthesia has numbed the area, the hand-held device uses microneedling and RF energy to targeted areas. This device has a series of tiny pins that will puncture the layers of the skin, causing controlled “trauma” to the area that needs rejuvenation.
The entire treatment takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area that needs help. Because of the complexity of the treatment process, it is important to seek a physician who has received extensive training with INTRAcel RF Microneedling. Dr. Oleszek is proud to be among those with this specialized treatment.
Following your treatment with INTRAcel you will notice a reduction not only in skin laxity, but also in the appearance of stretch marks, as well as common signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and creases.
Patients often report a minor pricking or tingling sensation as the INTRAcel device is passed over their skin. Dr. Oleszek and his staff with work with you throughout your session to ensure that your treatment is comfortable.
The number of treatments required to achieve your desired results are largely determined by the size of the area treated, and the individual condition of your skin. It is generally recommended, however, that two to five treatments be performed to achieve optimal results.
Many patients report seeing immediate skin tightening benefits following treatment with INTRAcel. You will continue to see your skin quality and texture improve as the days and months pass, for up to six months or longer.
Immediately following your treatment session, there may be some mild pinpoint bleeding. Your skin may be slightly red for a few hours, looking and feeling similar to a mild sunburn. It is not uncommon to experience mild swelling over the first few days following treatment, accompanied by some light bruising. This is temporary and typically subsides within a few days.
