To kick off 30 Days of Healthy, Beautiful Skin, I had a revolutionary new treatment called INTRAcel at Buckhead’s Institut’ DERMed which is celebrating 28 years in business this year.
The first time I heard about INTRAcel, I was intrigued. It is a high-tech skin treatment that combines the best of two technologies—microneedling and radio frequency. Essentially, you get the enhanced benefit of two treatments in one.
The treatment combines microscopic needles with targeted radio frequency to prompt the body to produce more collagen, which helps to support the skin, reduce sagging, improve imperfections, rejuvenate and provide overall tightening. This treatment is great for the whole face but can also be performed on the neck, hands, and other areas of the body where skin tightening is desired.
In my opinion, this is a truly advanced skin care treatment. The procedure starts with numbing of the area. This step helps to reduce the discomfort some people may feel. Although, most of the people I’ve talked to say the minor discomfort was more than worth the results. Plus, there is no downtime!
I had a single treatment on my face and after only one treatment I saw an amazing change in my skin. Over the next few weeks, my skin tone should continue to improve as the treatment continues to work. Enhanced results are seen after the second and third treatment.

As with any skin care regimen, consistency is the key to overall good results. A consistent daily regimen of cleansing, moisturizing and protection against the sun is a must. Also, don’t forget to get your skin screened in support of good health and skin cancer awareness month.
