Orange County Intensif RF Microneedling Treatments
When you think of the most advanced, safe, and effective cosmetic treatments available, think Total Dermatology in Orange County. Intensif RF Microneedling is one of our innovative new technologies that use the power of radiofrequency and collagen induction to keep your body producing the key components you need for beautiful, healthy skin.
Intensif Micro Needling with Radio Frequency takes microneedling to a new realm. “It’s like regular microneedling on steroids.”
Microneedling overcomes many of the challenges of non surgical skin correction since it can be used on any and every skin type. Ethnic skin is sensitive skin and often hyper-reactive to lasers, making non-laser treatment choices more important.Microneedling has filled an important gap because it lets us get the results you want with a much lower risk of pigmentation response. Adding radio frequency means you get even better outcomes more quickly.
*Individual Results May Vary.
EndyMed’s Intensif microneedling hand-piece works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold plated microneedles. The RF energy heats at depths that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.
Customizing treatments for each patient’s needs is critical.
The Intensif gives Dr. Pilest complete control over the course of the treatment, providing maximum results for each patient, regardless of skin type or skin color, skin thickness, or skin condition. Because needle depth is critical to the effectiveness (and safety), the system’s one-touch adjustment capability creates an incredibly precise delivery of heat to tissue levels where it is needed. Particularly effective for Acne Scarring, Intensif treatment’s on-the-spot needle depth option can access scars of any depth with sufficient heat delivery where needed and less depth in highly sensitive areas.
smoother, tighter, and more vital
Treated skin goes through a process of improvements via new collagen formation. For up to eight months after the last treatment, the treated skin will become smoother, tighter, and more vital. As most of the energy is delivered directly into the inner layer of the skin, patients will experience minimal downtime and may resume normal activities immediately.
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure, so only a minor level of discomfort is possible during your treatment. Usually, a topical numbing agent is applied and the microneedles just create tiny punctures in the skin, causing only minor pain at worst. A slight warming sensation is common with the addition of RF energy, but this can be counteracted with vibration and/or cooling devices.
Treatments with microneedling and RF are considered very safe. Microneedling with RF is suitable for use with all skin types and skin tones. Longer-lasting complications are rare, but they can include:
Prior to your treatment, your aesthetic specialist will discuss with you all of the possible risks. We at Total Dermatology consider your feeling of comfort and safety extremely important throughout your process.
Depending on the treatment levels and aggressiveness, you’ll experience varying levels of redness. Acne Scarring requires more energy so it will incur more redness and some levels of spot crusting. Lighter treatments for surface wrinkling may only mean you have some redness for a day. Some swelling can be expected, but this again is predicated upon the treatment levels.
The Intensif’s unique needles require less passes per treatment, for shorter treatment times and greater patient comfort, and provide quick treatment recovery times, faster than any other device on the market, with no bleeding or bruising.
Your expense will vary based on the extent of your treatment plan. If your plan calls for a larger targeted area, the cost will generally be higher. For many patients, more than one session is required to achieve desired results. We will present you with a treatment plan during your consultation that factors in your needs and budget.
There are several treatments that can provide results similar to microneedling. There are advantages and disadvantages with each technique, so you should consult with your cosmetic care provider to determine which approach fits your needs and goals the best.
A course of treatment is typically three to five sessions, depending on the patient. Treatments are given every four weeks for best results. This time interval is selected as it maintains the skin in “active” mode that most easily builds results upon the prior treatment. Intensif micro needling can also work well with other complementary services. Dr. Pilest notes the procedure works particularly well with PRP (platelet rich plasma).
When it comes to your skin and your health, it really is all about what’s best for you. Total Dermatology understands this, which is why we offer versatile treatments with experienced and highly trained aesthetic professionals led by Dr. Nissan Pilest. Your Total Dermatology transformation awaits.
