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.

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.
Discover the targeted Endermologie techniques combined with RadioFrequency that obtain superrior smoothing and body sculpting results with no downtime.
What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is a mechanical Lipomassage, body firming and cellulite smoothing treatment with additional benefits for fibrosis, inflammation, edema, lymphedema and circulatory problems.
The machine designed by LPG uses patented motorised rollers that have a ROLL'Up, ROLL'In and ROLL'Out action which gently yet intensively conditions skin tissue to eliminate fat deposits, revitalize blood and lymphatic circulation, and reactivate lipolysis.
The ROLL' In action is responsible for more than 70% of the fat elimination. The ROLL'Out action stimulates the collagen and elastin production and firms slackening skin.
Endermologie “Tissular Rolling” is approved by the
- Temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite and
circumferential body measurements of cellulite treated areas
- Temporarily improving local blood circulation
- Relieves DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
- Relieves minor muscle aches and pains, relieves muscle
spasms, and improves local circulation
Endermologie is for anyone who:
- Despite weight loss diets, cannot seem to get rid of those
saddlebags, bulges, fat deposits or cellulite dimples.
- Practices a healthy lifestyle, yet suffers from cellulite dimples, fat deposits or flabby skin.
- Has experienced the major hormonal fluctuations of puberty, pregnancy, or menopause which have ended
in dramatic figure changes.
- Has been able to stay thin over the years, but has not been able to avoid the sagging, thinning skin of advancing age.
- Wishes to sculpt certain parts of their body.
The analgesic, massage-like effects of endermologie have a calming, endorphin stimulating effect on the nervous system,
profoundly relaxing the body, soothing pain and restoring a sense of well-being. The visible effects on cellulite and body contouring have been well documented in 85 clinical studies, making it a very popular treatment.
What is Radio Frequency?
Radio Frequency is a non invasive skin tightening technique used on 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. Radio Frequency treatments promote collagen remodeling at the dermal layer. Collagen is the single most abundant protein found in humans and gives the face as well as the body much of its shape and substance. When the skin is young or new, the collagen fibers form a network of thick bundles spread evenly throughout the surface of the skin, and the skin remains moisturized and elastic. As we age, these bundles thin and become misaligned, and are no longer resilient to every day wear and tear. RF energy when used for skin tightening is able to penetrate deep into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure, causing collagen remodeling without damaging the epidermis.
The technician will apply a thin coat of ultrasound gel which works as a conductor for the radio waves to pass through the skin with no discomfort. The radio frequency energy (or light energy) heats the deeper skin layers during the treatment to boost collagen remodeling and production of new collagen. The heat activates the body’s wound healing responses in the subcutaneous area below the skin with minimal discomfort.
At Institut' DERMed Spa in Atlanta we love combining a Radio-Frequency Body Treatment with an Endermologie treatment to give you one of the most innovative high tech treatments for body contouring and skin tightening.
We also provide an at home maintenance process using Cellulite Rx products, a 3 Steps 3 Minute Cellulite Reduction Kit for use between Endermologie and RadioFrequency sessions for enhanced results.
Step 1: LipoSmooth Body Polish. The clinical actives in Cellulite Rx LipoSmooth Body Polish are designed to improve the skin’s texture while maintaining its moisture barrier. Crushed walnut shell and apricot seed removes the surface dead skin cells
Step 2: LipoTherm Contour Cream enhances circulation. Containing Niacin a powerful vasodilator the skin experiences a rosy, warm flush, stimulating blood flow to revive sluggish tissues. The texture of skin is refined with tightening guarana seed, caffeine, and carnitine. The phytonutrient wild yam extract enhances the skin’s shape.
Step 3: Lipolift Firming Lotion. Once circulation to the tissue has been dramatically increased, skin is rejuvenated with powerful peptides and glycolic acid. The peptides in the LipoLift Firming Lotion are infused with ultra-pure botanicals that have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These peptides support skin regeneration and firmness while the glycolic acid tightens and improves skin’s tone and texture.
