Fractional RF Microneedling
Microneedling is a highly sought-after procedure that’s been shown to produce exceptional results. When paired with focused radiofrequency (RF) technology the treatment becomes one of the most advanced non-surgical facelifts on the market. RF microneedling provides instant, long-term results you’ll love.
At Dr. Farole’s Cosmetic Facial Surgery Center, we’re happy to announce the arrival of INTRAcel Fractional RF Microneedling. We’re one of three practices in Pennsylvania to offer this recently developed device. In addition, we can perform Fractional RF Microneedling with PRP. Patients can treat a variety of cosmetic indications throughout the face and body including often hard-to-treat conditions such as melasma.
How Does It Work?
RF microneedling is done in a short in-office procedure. Dr. Anthony Farole will use the powerful INTRAcel handheld device to deliver three-layer therapy to predetermined problem zones. Treatment levels are adjusted as needed to ensure an optimal outcome with minimal discomfort. The actual procedure can be done in less than 30-45 minutes depending on the area being treated.
Your RF microneedling procedure is tailored to your individual needs. While microneedling creates tiny channels to the superficial layers of skin, focused radiofrequency wavelengths target the deeper layers. INTRAcel RF microneedling is designed to both jump-start the healing process, and encourage long-term collagen and elastin production.
INTRAcel is a minimally-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any real downtime. In most cases, you’ll be able to return to normal activities with minor side effects such as slight redness or swelling. Side effects typically subside within several hours. Sensitive areas like the under-eye can take several days to fully recover. Some patients opt to take a day or two before returning to social engagements.
Is It Right for Me?
INTRAcel RF microneedling can be the ideal skin rejuvenation treatment for almost any area on the face or body. Whether you’d like to address visible signs of aging on the hands or tighten lax skin on the abdomen, INTRAcel can help. Treatments are highly-customizable and tailored to address a variety of aesthetic concerns ranging from:
- Acne Scarring
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Overall Skin Texture
- Aging Concerns
- Lax Skin
If you’re looking for a powerful rejuvenation treatment that produces exceptional results without significant downtime, INTRAcel may be right for you. INTRAcel is safe and effective for treatment on the face, neck, hands, chest, and more. During your in-person consultation, Dr. Farole will help determine your candidacy for INTRAcel RF microneedling.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Initial results take anywhere from 3-4 weeks as collagen and elastin production are boosted. You’ll see a gradual improvement to complexion issues as well as overall skin tone and texture over the course of 6-8 months. Patients can achieve desired results with 1-3 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
INTRAcel RF microneedling has been shown to last upwards of 2-years in clinical trials. Upkeep treatments may be necessary as the skin continues to age. INTRAcel treatments can safely be done on a bi-annual basis or as needed to keep skin looking young and fresh.
