INTRAcel is a high tech skin rejuvenation treatment that targets collagen production to firm, smooth and tighten your skin. The treatment is rather like a non surgical facelift and can combat the signs of ageing, delaying the need for more intrusive facial surgery.
It combines radio frequency technology, microneedling and fractional treatments, all in one simple procedure. Together, these technologies deliver impressive anti-ageing results without any of the downtime associated with some of the more invasive options.
Dr Comins describes the results as ‘remarkable’ and highly recommends INTRAcel to those patients who would like to :
INTRAcel is a revolutionary treatment using tiny insulated micro needles which, unlike laser procedures or surgery, protects the surface of the skin from damage.
Treatments are targeted at variable depths below the skin surface, meaning that healthy skin is left undamaged causing minimal pain and discomfort.
INTRAcel is suitable for anyone concerned about loss of skin firmness, lines and wrinkles, acne or stretch mark scars and open pores. After just one treatment the skin is stimulated to produce more collagen and visible results will start to appear after two or more visits to the clinic.
INTRAcel is the ultimate skin rejuvenation solution from a single system. It can even target the skin around the delicate eye area to tackle crow’s feet and it will firm and tighten the skin around typical problem areas like the neck and jawline. Skin looks firmer, smoother, more luminous and youthful.
INTRAcel is a state of the art, non-surgical treatment for tightening and firming skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles without the down time associated with laser resurfacing or surgical facelift.
It combines radio frequency technology, microneedling and fractional treatments, all in one simple procedure. Tiny insulated needles penetrate deep into the dermis and heat the tissue for microseconds.
It’s a very targeted treatment so the surrounding tissue is left unaffected, which results in a very fast healing time. The body’s natural healing process produces a new, healthy and tighter skin structure in the treated area and the surrounding skin.
The number of treatments required will depend on the area being treated and the quality of the skin. Dr Comins will discuss this in your consultation, but generally at least 2-5 treatments are recommended.
Each treatment is ideally spaced between 4-6 weeks apart, but treatment plans can be flexible.
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied an hour before treatment. During the prodedure you will experience a prickling sensation across the skin as the treatment device head is passed over the area. This increases with the number of passes, but as the skin is cooled during treatment it is completely tolerable.
The levels of treatment can be adjusted to suit patient comfort. If you are worried about discomfort or feel nervous about the treatment you can discuss these concerns with Dr Comins who will suggest the appropriate response.
Yes, the treatment is safe but it must be carried out by a trained and experienced doctor to ensure that the different areas are treated at the correct levels. As with any treatment it is important to discuss any possible side effects with Dr Comins in your consultation.
Initially there will be tiny pinpoint bleeding which will settle in a few minutes. You will experience a mild sunburnt sensation for about an hour after treatment, then virtually no discomfort.
The skin can be red for a few hours; this usually resolves within 24 hours, this is a normal sign that the skin is healing deeply. Swelling is minimal particularly under the eyes (if treated) and resolves in 1-2 days. Sometimes a small bruise can occur.
Other possible side effects will be discussed in your consultation with Dr Comins.
The use of a good sunscreen (30+) following the treatment is very important to protect the skin during the healing phase and for several weeks following treatment.
Aloe Vera gel and cold compresses can be applied following treatment. Makeup can be applied after 24 hours once the initial epidermal healing has occurred.
All your aftercare needs will be discussed by Dr Comins in the consultation process and he is on hand after the treatment to answer your questions.
INTRAcel has featured in several publications recently including; Tatler’s Good Cosmetic Guide, the Daily Mail, Evening Standard, and Financial Times Magazine.
