EndyMed Intensif: RF Microneedling

An RF microneedling treatment combines the deep thermal energy of radiofrequency with the surface penetration of microneedling. The combination of these two treatments can effectively stimulate collagen production on multiple dermal layers to increase skin volume and improve skin tightness. You can use this treatment on all areas of the face, including the chin and neck to address sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging.

How This Treatment Works for Wrinkle Reduction

This treatment is minimally invasive and works by applying a pen-like device to small areas of the skin where there is visible skin laxity or other concerns. The specialized device simultaneously penetrates the skin with microneedles to create small injuries in the upper dermal layers, while also emitting thermal energy with these needles into the dermal layers.

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

Many people will be able to notice significant improvements in their overall appearance in as little as one treatment. You may notice results from your first treatment in as little as three weeks. Your initial results will typically include smoother and brighter-looking skin that will help you look younger. Of course, you may need several treatments to achieve your desired results. It’s common to need at least three to six treatments to address moderate to severe wrinkles and other signs of aging.

What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

There are several notable benefits of RF Microneedling, such as the fact that it’s very effective and can produce results in as little as one treatment. Other benefits that attract patients to this treatment can include:
  • Fast and Easy Treatment

    One of the reasons why this treatment is so fast is because it uses motorized technology that allows for microneedling to be done continuously, which enables more areas of the face to be treated at one time. Usually, your appointments will take about half an hour to complete. This treatment is also very easy and comfortable. A topical numbing cream will be used to prepare your skin for this treatment. Most of the time, you can complete the treatment and get right back to your day.

  • Minimal Preparation and Aftercare

    There is minimal preparation and aftercare required for this treatment. For example, you may need to stop using blood-thinning medications, certain herbal supplements, and some skincare products that exfoliate the skin, such as acids or retinoids. These preparation guidelines will ensure that your skin is in good condition for your appointment. After your treatment, you will not need to follow very many aftercare guidelines to achieve your desired results. Usually, you should follow these guidelines for at least three to seven days to ensure your skin is healing ideally after your treatment. You should avoid hot water, sunlight, excessive sweat, steam, harsh chemicals on the skin, and other potentially skin-irritating activities for a few days.

  • No Downtime

    After your treatment is complete, you will be able to go back to work or your normal daily activities. Although you will not have downtime associated with this treatment, you should wear SPF for the first week after your treatment to protect your skin. But in general, you should not expect any interruptions in your daily routine because of this treatment.

  • No Bleeding or Bruising

    One of the biggest advantages of this particular treatment is the fact that it will not cause any bleeding or bruising. It's common for microneedling treatments to cause bleeding and bruising as a side effect of treatment; these side effects are expected and typically go away within only a few days. However, with EndyMed Intensif, the system is designed to stimulate collagen production without causing any bleeding or bruising. This means that your recovery time is quicker. This benefit is especially important for those who have sensitive skin or skin that is prone to scarring.

  • More Effective Collagen Production

    The combination of radiofrequency and microneedling methods allows for more effective collagen production. Microneedling essentially opens a doorway into your skin so that radiofrequency energy can penetrate deeper dermal layers to stimulate collagen production at the base of the skin. When you can produce collagen in the deepest dermal layers, the surface of your skin typically benefits because deeper collagen production produces longer-lasting results.

  • Address Additional Concerns

    Finally, another benefit of the treatment is the fact that it can address additional concerns. In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment can be used to reduce acne scarring, stretch marks, enlarged pores, dark spots, and more. In other words, this treatment can be used to address virtually all superficial skin concerns you may have associated with aging or scarring.

Are You a Good Candidate?

This treatment is an ideal option for those who have mild to moderate aesthetic concerns on the face. A consultation will determine whether you’re qualified for this treatment. You may not be a good candidate if you’re currently pregnant or if your skin is not relatively healthy, such as if you have a current sunburn or eczema outbreak.
