Scarring after a surgical procedure is extremely common, especially for larger procedures such as orthopedic or spinal surgery. Having a visible reminder of your time spent recovering is the last thing many people want to deal with. Fortunately, the specialists at Second Appearance are here to help remove these scars, making you feel even better after surgery.
How can I get rid of my surgical scars?
At Second Appearance, we offer Intensif radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, a skin remodeling treatment. There is no downtime, peeling or pain after an Intensif RF microneedle treatment. Aside from surgical scars, this microneedle can also treat deep wrinkles, stretch marks, acne and oily skin.
How does Intensif RF microneedling remove surgical scars?
The Intensif RF microneedle is a part of the EndyMed Pro multi-application system, being one of its 3DEEP handpieces. This Intensif applicator is different from others because it uses dermal heating, which tightens the skin during treatment.
The procedure is minimally invasive, using hollow needles to pierce the skin and create microchannels. Intensif sends RF energy through these channels, stimulating collagen production, which increases the skin’s elasticity and moisture. This is beneficial when repairing surgical scars and other imperfections, as well as reversing the signs of aging.
What can I expect after an Intensif RF microneedling treatment?
As mentioned, there is no downtime necessary, and you won’t experience any peeling or pain. Some swelling and redness is normal after the procedure, but it doesn’t stick around for long. You can expect to see results immediately following the treatment, and will also notice continued improvement for up to one year.
A series of Intensif treatments, typically four to six, will be required—the exact number depends on the size and condition of your scar.
