Microneedling is a popular treatment to rejuvenate skin. It creates microscopic channels in the surface of the skin without harming it, stimulating the body’s production of collagen and elastin, two proteins which keep skin looking smooth, plump, and youthful.
Now, INTRAcel RF takes non-surgical rejuvenation to a new level, literally, by combining two minimally invasive techniques. It enhances the penetration of the skin by heating layers below the surface with laser light energy, using a state-of-the-art handheld device that targets the fractional radio frequencies through the tips of the microneedles. This causes an even greater production of new collagen and elastin than traditional microneedling, firming up and toning the skin (the body can even bank these for future benefit by those in their 20s). This process tightens saggy skin, eliminates wrinkles and lines, shrinks large and unsightly pores, repairs discolorations, reduces signs of acne, fades stretch marks and scars, and can even remove tattoos.
INTRAcel RF, considered by many to be the best technology of its kind in the world, can be safely and comfortably used on the face, neck, decolletage, arms and hands, abdomen, buttocks, and legs. Each area needs to be assessed for the right settings to achieve the desired outcome. The device provides maximum control of penetration depth and prevents dimpling of the skin. Afterwards, the skin may feel warm for a few days, like a mild sunburn with redness or swelling, but patients can resume their normal activities immediately (though it is advised to avoid applying makeup or doing any vigorous exercise for 24 hours).
While a single treatment produces noticeable improvements, because this is a gentle approach (using what is known as a non-ablative laser, which does not remove any skin layers), the optimum results usually require two to six treatments or more, spaced at least a month apart. You can discuss your goals and how many sessions are needed to reach them with the doctor. Once the therapy is completed, improvements appear gradually, the full benefits being apparent in a few months, as the body adopts its new appearance. Medical skincare products can be used to maintain and enhance the results.
So I’ve been on hormone therapy for a few years and but hated having to constantly inject myself every 2 weeks and the hormone fluctuations were rough sometimes. I decided to look around from pellet therapy and found Dr. Mack provided what I was looking for. When I finally got a chance to meet her, she was so sweet and really attentive, not only that, she noticed my hypothyroidism from my blood test (something I totally forgot to ask her about when I was there!)
I started my journey to better health in January of 2015. Since then I’ve lost 60 pounds and feel great. As well, I’ve started working with their functional medicine doctor, Dr. Mack. She is compassionate, kind and oh so knowledgeable. Every step of the way I’ve been monitored physically and nutritionally… I cannot express it enough that if you are looking for a journey to better health this is definitely the place you should start!
