For a safe, minimally-invasive skin resurfacing treatment, micro-needling may be a solution for you. At Athena Plastic Surgery, our micro-needling treatments utilize the EndyMed™ Intensif, the most advanced radiofrequency therapy currently on the market.
What is Micro-Needling?
To achieve smoother skin and a refreshed appearance, micro-needling is easy to fit into a busy schedule and requires no surgery, healing or downtime. The EndyMed™ Intensif features a treatment tip with several microscopic sterile needles. When moved over the skin of treated areas, these needles create punctures that stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
In addition to the highly efficient and painless microneedles, the EndyMed™ Intensif also emits a controlled beam of radiofrequency energy deep below the skin surface to gently heat tissues and stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve the skin’s strength and flexibility over time.
Why Choose the EndyMed™ Intensif for your Micro-Needling Treatment?
The EndyMed™ Intensif has several benefits over other micro-needling options, such as:
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, Acne scarring, general scarring, stretch marks and enlarged pores
- Providing a dual blend of collagen induction and radiofrequency therapies to maximize results
- Increasing patient comfort with a shock-free motion needle
- Optimizing tissue heating and collagen production with a Fractionated Pulse Mode
- Results that are clinically-proven to last for up to a year
The extent of treatment may depend on the side of the area and the condition of the skin, but micro-needling is typically a quick, well-tolerated procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Micro-Needling?
During your consultation, your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be discussed to determine if micro-needling is the appropriate course of treatment for you. Individuals who are seeking more dramatic results or who have contraindicating skin conditions may be advised to seek alternative methods of rejuvenation.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Micro-needling does not damage or irritate skin, and radiofrequency energy is clinically-tested and has the ability to completely bypass the skin surface without interfering with surrounding tissues. A flushed appearance may occur in treated areas and is easily controlled with ice or cold compresses.
Results may vary from patient to patient, and it is important to maintain good skincare and to protect your smoother, softer skin from the sun. Multiple sessions may be necessary in order to achieve desired results. Although the natural aging process cannot be prevented, regular micro-needling treatment can effectively manage superficial cosmetic concerns.
