Providing an effective and non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles and tighten facial skin is one of the greatest challenges in cosmetic medicine. Dr Peter Forrester has until now remained sceptical about the ability of existing treatments to fully meet this challenge.

However, with INTRAcel he has found a way that really does work to tighten the previously difficult areas of jowls, neck, upper cheeks and lower eyelids.

INTRAcel is a new device that cleverly combines two well-established techniques, micro-needling and radio-frequency (RF) skin tightening. After the application of local anaesthetic cream, a grid of microneedles punctures the surface of the skin and delivers short bursts of RF energy into the deeper layers.

Much of the age-related changes in skin result from the reduction in both quantity and quality of the essential structural proteins, collagen and elastin. RF energy has been shown to stimulate the growth of fibroblast cells. These are the source of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful and healthy skin. INTRAcels microneedles are insulated right up to the tip and can operate at a variable depth.

This means that specific skin layers can be selectively targeted with greater RF energy levels whilst leaving the outer skin undamaged, resulting in minimal down-time and a quick recovery. This is unlike laser treatments where the energy is delivered from the surface causing significant damage to the epidermis resulting in longer healing and downtime.

A treatment session will usually take an hour including the time for the anaesthetic cream to take full effect. The treated skin will be a little red for 1-2 days but can be concealed with make-up. A toned and tightened effect will be noticeable immediately but the full effects will develop over subsequent weeks. A course of up to three treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be indicated following which improvements will continue to develop for up to a year as new collagen develops.

Dr Forrester is excited about the arrival of INTRAcel and believes that this heralds a new era in facial rejuvenation.

INTRAcel can:

  • Improve the tone & texture of skin, producing a smoother and younger appearance

  • Tighten the skin to reduce sagging, wrinkles and fine lines

  • Improve stretch marks and scarring

  • Improve acne scarring
