The perfect option for the treatment of acne scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
The Intensif Radio Frequency’s sterile, high quality Gold Plated Micro-needles are tiny (300 microns thin) and tapered for smooth insertion to ensure minimal pain and downtime. The Intensif micro-needling hand-piece works by delivering short pulses of radio frequency energy through the micro-needles. The radio frequency energy heats layers deep in the skin, promoting collagen production and other healing mechanisms.
Its shock-free motion needle insertion mechanism allows for painless, effective and consistent treatments every time.
The high precision needle depth control offered by the Intensif provides for the most effective treatment strength suitable to the particular treatment area, for any skin type.
Most patients will experience minimal downtime and may resume normal activities immediately. At the time of your treatment, our treating nurse will also advise you on the best aftercare for your skin and book you in for your follow up appointment.

Here at Laser Skin Centre, we can combat acne scarring using the latest advanced aesthetic technology, the PicoSure laser. Our expert team of accredited laser technicians works with you to provide a tailored solution.
This involves a consultation and scheduled program to ensure you achieve the results you desire. Acne scarring is an important condition and something we specialise in assisting people with.
PicoSure has brought a new ray of hope in the lives of many people who were suffering from acne scars for long. The procedure offers unparalleled results in lesser time when compared to other laser treatments. It has proven helpful in hyper-pigmentation, tattoo removal, and acne scarring with definite results. It works by creating a photomechanical impact created by ultra short pulses of laser delivered into the skin. It removes the damaged tissues without harming the surrounding area and improves the production of collagen. The result is a firmer, younger and scar-free skin, which makes others take notice of the beautiful change.
PicoSure is safe for all skin types. However, if you have sensitive skin or some other allergies, you must inform the therapist about them. The consultation session is an important first step which helps in understanding the requirements and arranging for tailored treatment.
During a PicoSure treatment for acne concerns, a thorough consultation is provided by our experts. The clients are empowered to make an informed decision on how to combat acne and get the confidence boost they seek.
A cooling device called the Zimmer is used before, during and post treatment to ensure that you are comfortable. There is no real down-time after treatment sessions but you can expect redness (erythema) for up to 48 hours after the treatment. Pre and post care will be given and performed monthly by the therapists.
The length of the treatment depends on each individual. Our consultation session helps the technicians to assess your specific needs. Typically, you can expect between 3-6 sessions for acne scar removal using PicoSure.
