Institut’ DERMed Spa is first in Atlanta with the INTRAcel Fractional RF Microneedling, FRM™ treatment.
The INTRAcel Fractional RadioFrequency Microneedling, FRM™ is the latest technology for skin tightening.
INTRAcel uses fractional radio frequency combined with insulated micro-needles to treat wrinkles, sagging jawlines, neck laxity, crow’s feet, acne scars, various skin irregularities, photo aging and the reduction of stretch marks.
INTRAcel uniquely treats the exact area required through specially designed insulated micro-needles that deliver the RF energy specifically where it is needed without causing any damage to the epidermis. The RadioFrequency energy transmitted stimulates the fibroblasts resulting in the production of new collagen. The treatment is suitable for all skin types and skin tones.
Founder of Institut' DERMed, Lyn Ross, L.M.E., is very excited about the addition of the INTRAcel RF technology to the Institut' DERMed Spa treatment menu. "I have done much research in the arena of MicroNeedling and Radio Frequency and to have a modality that combines both and has demonstrated such visible results is really exciting", Ross said. "We can select and combine the ideal energy needed to achieve the best results to address the skin care needs of our clientele. It's really remarkable".
INTRAcel combines three effective treatments: Mono-pola and, Bi-polar radio frequency energy and micro-needling. It uses insulated needle electrodes to deliver RF energy below the skin. The spacing of the needles means that healthy skin is preserved which facilitates rapid healing and growth of new tissue.
You can treat the face, neck, décolleté and other parts of the body. Immediate results are experienced from the INTRAcel treatment with a visible tightening and lifting continuing over time as more collagen is produced.
INTRAcel is effective for treating:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Loss of elasticity
Poor skin tone and texture
What does the treatment involve?
You may experience a prickling sensation as the machine head is passed over the skin. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment for added comfort. During the treatment radio frequency heat energy is delivered into the upper middle layers of the skin stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. What this means for you is firmer, thicker, rejuvenated skin without the downtime associated with other more invasive treatments.
How long does it take?
30 to 45 minutes.
Best results are achieved with a series of 3 treatments. Results usually peak 6 months after your final treatment and can last for up to 2 years.

Winter cold, wind and snow leads to dry, scaly winter skin. Add some dry indoor heat and your skin can feel uncomfortably rough and itchy. Areas on the body that typically experience winter itch are the sides of the torso and back. For anyone susceptible to breakouts your skin can also over produce oil because of the lack of moisture.
Welcome to the age of high tech treatments!
Radio-Frequency Facial & Body Treatment is one of the innovative high tech facial treatments for skin tightening.
WHAT IS IT? A non invasive skin tightening technique used on the face and the body, that can be applied to all skin types. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments use the tissue's resistance to turn the RF energy into thermal energy. Radiofrequency (RF) are a nonablative treatment meaning the RF does not damage the epidermis (outer skin layer) in any way. The radio frequency energy (or light energy) heats the deeper skin layers during the treatment to boost collagen remodeling and production of new collagen.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin disorder that causes redness of the skin of the face in people of Celtic origin. The cause of Rosacea is not known but it usually affects people with fair skin in their 30's or 40's. Research has found that the skin of people with Rosacea contains approximately 4 times as many tiny skin mites, called demodex folliculorum, than people without Rosacea. These mites live in the oil canals of the face and as it has also been shown that the oil in the skin of rosacea patients is different from non-rosacea patients this may be the cause of the multiplication of these mites.
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer although it is not as common as other forms such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell but it is still the leading cause of death from skin disease. Because it is Melanoma Awareness it’s time to learn what it is, what it looks like and how to check for symptoms. The saying goes “knowledge is power” and that is certainly the case with melanoma!
SKIN COLOR AND THE ROLE OF MELANIN
Human skin has red, yellow, brown and blue tones. What we actually perceive in skin color is the reflected light off the skin. The best way to see true skin color is in natural light.
Melanin is also known as pigment. Melanin production is essentially a protective mechanism to prevent ultra violet damage to the cell nucleus.The basic unit of melanin is tyrosine, an amino acid which goes through a variety of conversions before melanin starts to form. Melanin is then transferred to the keratin cells by melanosomes. These cells rise to the stratum corneum, and eventually are sloughed from the skin.
