Intensif Micro-Needling With Radio Frequency

Intensif Micro Needling with Radio Frequency takes micro needling to a new realm. “It’s like regular micro needling on steroids.”

Micro Needling 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.

Micro Needling has filled an important gap because it lets us get the results you want with much lower risk of pigmentation response. Adding radio frequency means you get even better outcomes more quickly.

The Power of Little Gold Needles

EndyMed’s Intensif micro-needling hand-piece works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold plated micro-needles. The RF energy heats at depths that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.

On-the-Spot Customization is Key

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.



How Many Treatments Are Needed?

A course of treatment is typically 3-5 sessions, depending on the patient. Treatments are given every 4 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 Will I See Results?*

Treated skin goes through a process of improvements via new collagen formation. For up to 8 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.

What is Post-Treatment Recovery Like?*

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.

Intensif Advantages Over Other RF Micro Needling Devices

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.
