Are you struggling with acne or acne scars?
Skin issues can be frustrating to remove since they can be persistent. Acne is one of the most common skin problems in the United States. About 50 million Americans struggle with acne every year.
So what’s the best way to minimize and remove different skin problems?
Have you ever heard of a treatment combining radiofrequency and microneedling? EndyMed Intensif is your best solution to fix skin problems without an actual needle.
Read on to learn more about using EndyMed Intensif for acne scars and other skin problems.
How Does Endymed Intensif Work?
Endymed Intensif helps you lessen or remove acne scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This type of treatment combines microneedles and radiofrequency energy. They emit heat, which remodels the skin to result in a more youthful and smoother appearance.
The microneedles stimulate your skin’s collagen to remove scars and wrinkles. The radiofrequency delivers non-insulated needles three layers deep into your skin. It encourages new skin to come out by starting the natural healing process.
One of the best advantages of Endymed Intensif is that you receive microneedling and radiofrequency energy in one treatment. This has minimal downtime, meaning you can go about your day after the treatment. (For more on the benefits of microneedling, see our previous post on the topic.)
Endymed Intensif is a great treatment for all skin tones and types. It has little risk of hyperpigmentation, burning, and scarring. It helps make your skin smooth and tight, both in its superficial and structural layers.
It’s a treatment that provides minimal pain but helps to remove dilated pores, marks, and so on. Tools used for Intensif have 300 microns made of thin, gold-plated microneedles. The needles ensure a level of safety and efficacy with minimal discomfort.
The needle insertion ensures a shock-free experience for your skin. Endymed Intensif also holds a proprietary FPM or Fractionated Pulse Mode. This mode gives an enhanced heating volume to get optimal collagen remodeling.
Endymed Intensif can take a while for the results to appear, needing multiple sessions that can take a few months. The numbing cream used for the treatment minimizes pain but could also cause a little discomfort.
People with medium to dark skin tones may be at risk of hyperpigmentation. It’s also risky to try Endymed Intensif under the hands of someone inexperienced. The wrong treatment can lead to uneven skin textures, dark spots, lines/divots, or more burns.
Good Candidates for Endymed Intensif
Like all cosmetic treatments, not everyone can get treatment unless they’re healthy. Pregnant women and people who take blood-thinning medications can’t get Endymed Intensif treatment. As stated earlier, this treatment is suitable for all tones and skin types.
To lesson risks, it’s important to find an aesthetician experienced with treating your skin tone and type. People with skin types V and VI don’t need this treatment since melanin protects their skin. However, they can get other issues like acne scars and skin laxity, which Endymed Intensif can fix.
How Long Does It Last?
EndyMed Intensif can last for around one to two years. This depends on the intensity and number of treatments.
The treatment also lasts longer based on the addressed skin issue, such as acne or aging. Acne scar treatments can last a few years longer than skin aging treatments.
It would be best to have regular maintenance treatments to continue receiving the benefits. Prolonging your treatment requires medical-grade skincare and sunscreen. You need SPF 30 or more to prevent sun damage from re-appearing on your skin.
Possible Treatment Areas
The face is one of the most common areas treated by Endymed Intensif. Popular parts of the face include the upper lip, chin, jawline, lower eyelids, and cheeks. They treat your facial areas three-dimensionally with deep dermal heating.
Another popular choice is the body, particularly the jawline, neck, knees, and upper arms. Endymed Intensif reduces the size and improves crepey skin. This type of treatment is a great alternative for surgery or similar treatments.
The whole session for Endymed Intensif can take around 30 minutes to one hour for one session. Make sure to consult your doctor before considering the treatment. Talk about your conditions and check with your doctor’s recommendations.
What to Expect During the Treatment
Before the procedure, your aesthetician will place numbing cream on your face. After waiting for some time with the numbing cream on, the treatment starts, taking at least 30 minutes to finish.
The Endymed Intensif hand-piece will move over your skin and make micro-channeled simulations. You’ll feel something rough like sandpaper move all over your skin. There will be a temporary feeling of warmth from the radiofrequency.
What Happens After the Treatment?
Once the treatment finishes, you’ll experience redness within the first few hours. Everything will feel warm and tight, as if you have a mild sunburn. The minimal downtime allows you to continue your regular skincare after 48 hours.
Avoid using sunscreen and direct sunlight exposure for the first days after the treatment. Your Endymed Intensif post skincare routine relies on overnight serums. Be sure to ignore any scabs and bruising since they can cause scarring and pigmentation issues.
Always wear a scarf, thick clothes, or hats to protect your skin. The Endymed Intensif results in your skin feeling fresh and glowing after a few months. Be careful and picky about your Endymed Intensif post-care to avoid injuring your new skin.
