EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedling
Face and Neck Treatment
Both men and women are interested to know—what’s the next best thing when it comes to skin tightening and resurfacing. Previously, a facelift was the best option to help people combat mild to severe symptoms of aging, but now as the world shifts from surgical solutions to nonsurgical alternative treatments, a facelift is no longer the only option that can get you the results you want for supple, youthful skin. The skin, especially in the face, suffers from intrinsic, and extrinsic stress such as lifestyle choices, weight fluctuations, environmental damage, ineffective and damaging skin care products, as well as the natural process aging brings.
To treat the skin adequately and at the levels, we need to influence internal, structural change within the deep dermal layers without surgery; we need something that can penetrate safely to deliver just enough fractional micro-injuries to cause natural healing to occur. Microneedling in combination with radio frequency heat energy is how we accomplish nonsurgical lift, tightening, tone and texture enhancements.
This facial nonsurgical treatment is changing the way we look at facial rejuvenation since this heat energy has been used within the medical community to lift and tighten tissues for a number of years. At MediSpa Solutions, we use and recommend the EndyMed Intensif microneedling and radio frequency device for all our clients looking for effective, noticeable results without going under the knife. In addition to providing some amazing facial changes to your skin, the EndyMed Intensif if known for correcting stretch marks and treating areas where cellulite dominates throughout your body. Your skin will go through an amazing metamorphosis of youthful skin after each customized treatment with the Intensif.
EndyMed Intensif Microneedling and Radio Frequency Device
Unlike many microneedling products, the hand-held Intensif device by EndyMed is time, pressure and temperature controlled during treatment application which helps our clients with comfort levels and time for treatment. The tip of the device is equipped with 25 microneedles that are plated with gold and fitted with radio frequency ability so that as the needles are applied to the skin, they can deliver this radio frequency heat energy at the precise depth needed. These needles retract into a clear cased covering that has a treatment signaling light, changing from blue to lavender as we apply the needles to the facial areas for treatment. A touchscreen monitor allows us to change the depth of these needles based on the area we treat, the décolletage, neck, chin, cheeks, upper or lower lip line, nose, or forehead.
The Intensif Microneedling Treatment
Now that you understand how the device is composed, how does it work? Before we begin any Intesif treatment with our EndyMed device at MediSpa Solutions, we clean and dry your skin thoroughly to make sure no debris or excess oil gets into the micro-injuries we will create with our microneedling device. We then apply an anesthetic cream to face for about 30-40 minutes so that we can numb the face for the utmost comfort. While clients do not report discomfort in connection to the microneedle’s application, we do this simply to offer additional assurances that you’ll feel comfortable.
Client will lay back in our treatment room with their hair pulled back. Our skin care therapist or physician will then begin treating the lowest part of the face first; they then work their way up in sections, using the specified needle depth that ranges from 1.0 mm to 2.00 or 3.0 mm, depending on the toughness and thickness of the area.
As we apply the Intensif microneedling treatment to the skin, a 25 goldplated, radio frequency needle is used. Small channels pierce the skin, which damages the area slightly, so there are tiny puncture wounds in the skin. Instead of bleeding occurring, however, the radio frequency heat is delivered to the deepest point of the needle, so the area is cauterized. At the same time, this device stops any bleeding from happening during the procedure. Old collagen that has shrunk or degraded will degenerate as new collagen starts to build with the pasasge of time. Elastin fibers which help maintain elasticity in the skin begins to renew at the same time.
This recreates the foundation for jubilant, young skin weeks after the treatment.
Radio frequency works on the muscle layer below as well to cause the muscle fibers to tighten and lift the face, neck, décolletage for fresh new you. A pioneer in the field of cosmetics, no other device on the market utilizes radio frequency for skin treatment.
After Your Intensif Treatment
After the treatment, your face is gently cleansed. A hydrating moisturizer is then applied to the skin, in an effort to prevent drying and scabbing afterward. We recommend a heavier moisturizer that’s been previously approved by your physician, particularly because most skin care products are not customized to your skin type when you purchase drugstore brands. Your skin may look slightly red and feel sensitive directly after but should be back to normal in about 12 hours. After these micro-injuries are created in the skin and they’re still fresh, we ask that our clients try not to wear makeup for this 12-hour period to allow the skin air and healing time free of foreign materials. Your skin will begin to feel tighter and lifted weeks after this treatment and you didn’t have to go through surgery to achieve the effect!
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of treatments each patient requires depends on the level of damage in their skin and their overall expectations for their complexion in the future. Some people benefit from one single treatment, while most of our clients opt in for a three to four series of treatments, performed at least a month apart.
