The EndyMed Intensif micro-needle treatments aim to treat acne scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and other conditions that require thorough dermal heating. The process safely and effectively pulses focused radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, providing a revolutionary collagen-remodeling solution for scar removal with a short downtime and little discomfort. It is recommended that you do a series of 3 treatments of the EndyMed Intensif spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
These treatments will replace the damaged scar tissue with healthy, rejuvenated tissue, thus giving the treated skin a smoother, tighter appearance.

Micro-Needle Therapy

Micro-needle therapy reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring. Recovery time can range from 24 hours to a few days, but many return to work the next day. It is recommended that you follow a program of 2 – 5 treatments spaced 1 month apart to achieve optimal results.
The micro-needling treatment involves a series of fine acupuncture needles attached to a Dermal Pen that moves over the surface of the skin to create microscopic channels. These small punctures seal over almost immediately, and this “damage” to the dermis encourages the body to produce new elastin and collagen to generate new skin cells. Although typically used on the face, micro-needling can be done anywhere on the body for an effective scar removal procedure.

Active FX

The Active FX laser skin resurfacing method for scar removal consists of a laser peel focused on the epidermis that reduces surface imperfections and improves skin tone. It’s effective and precise, and is particularly helpful in treating scars, particularly those caused by acne. Active FX will even out skin tone and texture, leaving you with a brighter, more balanced complexion.
The procedure works to smooth fine lines and scars through a series of laser light pulses over the scarred area to clear the top layers of damaged skin, revealing fresh, rejuvenated skin in a short time.
