Most people have heard the term “microneedling” but many don’t realize there’s a huge difference between the three different types of microneedling treatments. At Athena Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer our patients the safest, most powerful device: the ENDYMED RADIOFREQUENCY microneedling device. The RF energy allows it to penetrate the skin deeper, leading to more powerful results. Many day spas are using the PEN or Roller handheld microneedling devices, which do not give you the same results as the radiofrequency Endymed device because:
1) – The RF microneedling device actually penetrates deeper into the skin by focusing energy past the point of needling, giving you better results overall.
2) The treatment is safer – There is a high risk of cross-contamination with non-laser based microneedling devices. On the other hand, the Endymed’s gold plated needles are sanitary and fully disconnected from the machine head. This prevents any risks of cross-contamination.
3) The treatment works better on wrinkles and acne scarring – Acne scars are the small, tough patches of thick damaged skin that can occur after acne. Endymed RF Microneedling works to break the material up in a much more effective way than just poking holes in it. Using this treatment, we can focus energy right into the blemishes multiple times, providing an effective treatment and a precise result.
4) The depth and intensity can be adjusted – Endymed RF Microneedling is versatile in that it can be a mild, simple treatment or a deep, transformative service by changing the number of passes of the device over the treatment area and the level of intensity used during the treatment. This means more options for you. If you want to treat large pores or acne scars, or if you are looking for an effective, reliable treatment to resurface your skin without a lot of downtime, you can take advantage of the Endymed RF.

What is EndyMed™?
A revolutionary, multi-treatment skin science system that utilizes non-invasive radiofrequency technology, our EndyMed PRO is ideal for skin tightening and body contouring. It features multiple treatment heads that can be customized to individual treatment.
What is the EndyMed™ Intensif™ Microneedle Handpiece?
In addition to the handpieces available for body contouring, body tightening, and skin tightening, the EndyMed™ system now features an innovative handpiece that is specially-designed for micro-needling.
Consisting of sterile, high-quality, gold-plated microneedles, the micro-needling handpiece is safe for all types of skin and designed to deliver a high level of efficacy and safety with minimal discomfort. Unlike other micro-needling treatments, the Intensif’s™ Fractionated-Pulse Mode provides enhanced heating volume for optimal skin remodeling.
How Does Intensif™ Micro-Needling Benefit the Skin?
As the tiny needles are moved over the skin, microscopic punctures are created in the skin. While these are not visible to the naked eye, this process, often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin for added structure and strength.
In addition, the radiofrequency energy emitted by the Intensif™ gently heats the underlying collagen for maximum improvement of several cosmetic concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Traumatic scars
In addition to being approved by the FDA in the United States, the Intensif micro needling has also been cleared for treatment in European countries as well as Canada.
Is EndyMed™ Intensif™ Micro-Needling Safe?
Radiofrequency energy is commonly utilized by several areas of medicine for its ability to effectively target cosmetic concerns underneath the skin without damaging surrounding healthy skin or tissues.
The EndyMed™ PRO system is also equipped with several safety features for controlled, even distribution of heat that delivers predictable results every time. Although no major side effects are typically reported with Intensif™ micro-needling, treated areas may appear temporarily flushed or slightly red for one or two days afterward.
