Intracel Fractional RF Microneedling

The system consists of a Fractional RF Microneedle™ array that assists in reinvigorating the skin and can aid with things like face lifts, acne, acne scarring and large pores through variable intensity treatment on differing skin depths.

The fractional RF microneedling™ technology is an innovative design that uniquely treats the target area through rapid penetration of specially designed insulated micro-needles without causing extensive damage to the epidermis.  Through the action of the microneedles, a tiny column is created that facilitates healing and brings about a growth factor that develops the mechanism of natural recovery with the effect being similar to that of peeling, but with minimal impact on the epidermis.  At the same time it emits a high-tensioned RF pulse onto the target area inside the skin.  The fractional RF thermolysis is applied directly to this area and selectively degenerates the collagen fibres between the superficial dermis and muscle band, resulting in the fibres immediately dwindling and thus promoting the construction of new collagen through a stimulus of the fibroblasts.

In summary the therapy is:

  • Safe, with minimal pain to the patient as it is a non-ablative procedure with RF pulses only being targeted at areas below the epidermis
  • Efficient, as the direct RF emission purposefully targets area to stimulate fibroblasts and the production of new collagen
  • Effective, because of the delivery of the appropriate elements through the expansion of the intercellular route.

How Intracel System Works

Each needle in the array is insulated at the tip, with only 0.3mm exposed at the apex where the RF emits.  The system differs from laser therapy in that the electrical energy is transposed into thermal energy and where the RF energy exits the end of the needle it transfers from its point circle to the adjoining areas causing denaturalisation and coagulation.  As the needles are insulated apart from their tips, the micro holes that are created are not exposed to thermal damage during the RF emission which in turn minimises the side effects of pigmentation and spares any damage to the epidermis.

Intracel How it Works

The system is sufficiently optimised to deliver enough thermal energy to denaturalise a cell and destroy the causes of acne bacteria, acne and sebaceous glands in addition to improving the scarring associated with acne lesions.
