What is INTRAcel Pro and how can it benefit you?

  • What is INTRAcel Pro?

INTRAcel works by stimulating the body’s natural production of fresh collagen in the skin. It can be used to target skin concerns such as acne scarring, skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and large pores, with patients reporting results after just one treatment!

It works by using Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology to promote the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate. INTRAcel is classed as a medical device and has been FDA approved since 2017, Dermoperfection is proud to be the leading provider of the service in the Midlands.

  • How does it work?

Insulated needles are used in a stamping fashion, releasing radiofrequency waves from the needle tips that produce a heat effect at the tip without damaging the upper layers of the skin. This triggers cellular turnover and harnesses the body’s natural healing response. 

  • What areas will be treated?

It is most commonly used on the face, neck and décolletage, however other areas include the hands, and where there is scarring and stretch marks. 

It’s good for skin tightening and lifting, improving skin texture and tone, reducing pore size, improvement in acne scarring and surface irregularities. It’s also effective in treating active acne in reducing oil production, and is one of the few treatments suitable for neck rejuvenation.

  • When is the use of INTRAcel not recommended?

We cannot use INTRAcel in the case of infections and open skin at the site of the treatment area or active cystic acne.  People with an implanted defibrillator, mechanical heart valves, pacemaker or any other device affected by radiofrequency cannot receive INTRAcel treatment. It is also not approved for anyone who is pregnant or currently breastfeeding. 

  • Can INTRAcel be preventative?

Yes! The collagen stimulation effect can prevent skin from sagging and creasing as much as it usually would. 

  • Will I have a consultation first?

Yes, as with all the procedures we offer, you will have a free no obligation consultation to make sure INTRAcel is right for you and to tailor your treatment for the results you’re hoping to achieve. 

  • Does it hurt?

Topical anaesthesia is applied prior to the treatment, to minimise discomfort. Please aim to arrive an hour before your appointment for this cream to be applied.

  • Is there any downtime following this procedure? 

Yes, you can return to your daily life afterwards – there will be some redness and swelling during the first day, but after that you should be fine.

You can wear make-up after the treatment, but make sure you apply an SPF to your skin first for protection.

  • Does INTRAcel cause bruising?

Most people do not bruise after INTRAcel, but occasionally there may be bruising around the eye area as the skin is thin here.

If you are prone to bruising, we recommend using arnica or bromelain to help reduce it. 

  • How soon will I see the effects?

There will be an immediate improvement in the texture of the skin in the first few days after treatment, however the best results will be noticed two to four months after. 

  • Will I look natural?

Yes – INTRAcel doesn’t cause any volume change in the skin, simply some contraction. Collagen stimulation means the skin will not only tighten but look more vibrant and healthy too. Due to the nature of the procedure INTRAcel also does not affect facial movements. 

  • Does INTRAcel dissolve dermal fillers?

There is some evidence suggesting that having energy-based treatment over an area previously injected with dermal fillers will lead to inflammatory changes. However, there have not been any reported detrimental effects. 

  • How often will I need to have treatments?

After the initial course of three treatments, patients will usually have one every six to twelve months.  

  • Will I need a check-up afterwards?

You won’t need to, but of course you’re welcome to book in for a review or just a coffee and a catch up with the team.

Absolutely amazing! Stu is knowledgeable and thorough. Book in- you won’t be disappointed.
I enjoyed my first envy facial immensely with the lovely Stuart. The results after only one treatment were amazing. My skin felt squeaky clean & definitely had a nice glow to it. I'm already looking forward to starting my course of microneedling facials. The whole team at Dermoperfection have a wonderful energy around them and make the whole experience feel fantastic ?

I can honestly say I’ve always been very very happy with the service and treatments I’ve received at Dermoperfection. A very professional and polished team who really know their stuff and how to make you look great. The proof of this is I often get mistaken for 10 years younger than I actually am so that’s a sign my treatments have been highly effective! Thank you Dermoperfection! x

I have been going to Stu and the team for about 18 months now and I honestly would not go anywhere else. Stu and the team are so professional, approachable and attentive. Stu always listens to my concerns about my skin and always knows what to do. He is so knowledgeable, experienced and I know I'm in good hands. I have been the most confident I have ever been since going to Stu. He really is a genius when it comes to aesthetics and works to a high standard. He will also be very honest if you don't need anything doing or will offer an alternative which also saves money. You can tell he's really passionate about what he does and it certainly shows in his work. I always feel like a million dollars when I leave the clinic!!! I am always recommending people and they have said exact same thing! Thank you!!!!
