The EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedle system is an FDA-cleared technology designed to help rejuvenate skin by improving skin tone and texture, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars. The treatment is minimally invasive and is typically well tolerated with little-to-no downtime. Results can be expected within several weeks, however optimal results typically occur after a series of several treatments.
Our Assessment: We are very excited about this treatment! Depending on individual patient condition and needs, Intensif RF Microneedle can be used to improve facial volume, tighten skin in the face and arms, or in combination with other energy devices and injectable treatments to reduce the appearance of scars or address other cosmetic goals. We have been investigating for several years RF-microneedle devices, which penetrate the skin and deliver energy directly to deeper layers. Most devices would either deliver good results but require several days of down time, or be easy on the patient but have underwhelming results. With Intensif, we have been able to develop our own proprietary protocols that can achieve the best of both worlds: excellent results without significant down time.
EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedle facts
How does it work?
Intensif RF uses “microneedles” to safely deliver fractional radio-frequency (RF) energy to specific locations into the deeper skin layer known as the dermis. This energy promotes the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, and over time the targeted tissue is replaced by healthy, younger-looking skin.
How long does it take? What is the recovery like?
Each treatment takes about 15–20 minutes of active energy delivery, and results gradually appear over the next several months. While each patient’s skin condition is unique, Intensif RF Microneedle treamtment generally requires a series of treatments spaced approximately four weeks apart to ensure optimal results. The procedure is typically well tolerated, with little discomfort and minimal downtime. The most common side effects are redness and swelling in the treatment area, which generally resolve within a few days.
How long do results last?
While each person’s experience will be different, studies have shown that results typically last up to a year after the most recent Intensif RF Microneedle treatment.
