Radio-Frequency Micro-needling for
Skin Tightening & Tissue Remodeling​

Radio frequency waves can penetrate the skin more efficiently than IPL or lasers, no matter the color of skin.

Desert Med Aesthetics offers innovative RF skin treatments, designed as an addition to the EndyMedPRO™ system, called Intensif Fractional Microneedling system.

This type of skin microneedling technology offers exceptional benefits to clients who wish to enhance their appearance, smooth facial lines and wrinkles, or correct acne scarring and stretch marks resulting from pregnancy and other common body changes.

Advantages of Micro Skin Needling

The EndyMed Advantage: Skin Tightening, Rejuvenation, and Scar Reduction – all in one device!

There are many different types of RF microneedling systems available on the market today which use a standard consecutive mode of radiofrequency transmission.

By using a unique algorithm, EndyMed’s Intensif technology delivers a fractional pulse mode and applies the the energy in a micro pattern, enabling a uniform distribution. This method results in  effective heating of the skin for ideal results.

Intensif applies an array of micro-diameter needles to safely and effectively deliver focused radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis to provide collagen re-modeling, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

How does the Intensif Micro Skin Needling Work?​

EndyMed’s Intensif headpiece works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold plated micro-needles. The RF energy heats the papillary and reticular dermis, promoting skin improvement according to the treated lesion.

Throughout the course of the Intensif treatment and for months afterwards, the microscopically damaged tissue will be replaced by new, healthy and younger looking tissue. The treated skin will become smoother, tighter and more vital.

As most of the energy is delivered directly into the inner layer of the skin, patients will experience minimal downtime and may resume normal activities immediately after treatment.

Indian Wells Radiofrequency Microneedling FAQs

At Desert Med Aesthetics, we believe that the best treatments happen when patients have access to all the information they need about the procedures they’re interested in. To help you see if RF microneedling is right for you, our Palm Springs radiofrequency microneedling expert has curated some of the top questions she receives from patients just like you. Check out these FAQs and be sure to bring your own personal questions to your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Cosgrove.

What is the Difference Between Traditional microneedling and RF Microneedling?

While both types of microneedling treatments aim to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, each takes a different approach. Traditional microneedling uses a specialized tool that contains very fine needles. This device is then rolled over the treatment area, create incredibly small wounds in the uppermost skin layers. In contrast, RF microneedling uses a combination of microneedles and radiofrequency to penetrate deep within the skin’s layers. As RF microneedling goes deeper below the skin’s surface, it’s able to tighten skin from within.

Who is a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Given the depth of penetration capable by RF microneedling, this treatment is an excellent option for a diverse range of issues. At Desert Med Aesthetics, patients have used Intensif to treat problems such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and skin laxity across the face and body.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The total number of sessions each patient needs varies from person to person. Depending on your skin’s current condition and long-term aesthetic goals, you may need anywhere from three to five total sessions.  We’ll determine the right number of sessions and frequency of treatments to ensure you achieve your goals safely during your consultation with Dr. Cosgrove.

When Will I See the Results?

As the treatment is creating new skin cells from within, it can take several sessions to begin noticing your RF treatment results. Most patients start to see their treatment results around six weeks after their first session and enjoy optimal results around six months after their final session.

How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost in Palm Springs and Indian Wells?

Like many other cosmetic treatments, radiofrequency microneedling is an investment in your wellbeing. As the treatment is highly personalized to each individual’s specific needs, it isn’t easy to provide a specific cost without first completing a consultation.
