Our Clinic in Guernsey
St. Peter Port
The Aesthetic Skin Clinic uses a unique Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling (FRM) technique called INTRAcel, to deliver energy deep to the dermis via specially-designed, insulated microneedles that penetrate the skin.
Surgical Microneedling in Guernsey & Jersey
Causing selective heating in the lower dermis, the INTRAcel device gets right to the target area, without compromising or heating the skin’s surface or the underlying tissue.
This method has proven results and avoids the risk of burning or hyperpigmentation of the epidermis. In turn, the heat energy exposed to the dermis works to tighten and shorten collagen fibres, while simultaneously encouraging collagen production and the stimulation of firoblasts. Therefore, the INTRAcel can be used as an anti-ageing protocol.
Differing from laser treatments, the INTRAcel does not rely on electroenergy for heat; the insulated microneedles only penetrate at 0.3mm and the radiofrequency energy is emitted only in the dermis and not at a superficial level. This denaturalisation of the cells in the dermis can help eliminate the causes of acne and acne bacteria in the sebaceous glands.
INTRAcel FRM treatment is an effective solution for those seeking tighter skin and facial rejuvenation, but is also designed to treat scars and acne triggers. It can be used on bodily areas as well as the face.
Our clinical team at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic will initially consult you based on your indication, and will recommend the best course of action to gain the desired result. It is important to assess your presented concern thoroughly and provide the safest and most fitting treatment for you.

Treatment at a glance
Possible bleeding points, mild swelling and redness for 48 hours
Topical numbing cream is applied 45-60 minutes prior to treatment
A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area to be treated to make the procedure more comfortable. The nurse practitioner will then apply the device to the skin surface releasing the needles and delivering radiofrequency energy in short bursts as the head is moved across the area to be treated. Immediately after treatment the treated area will appear red and slightly inflamed. If uncomfortable, a cool pack, or cold air is applied to the area.
INTRAcel is specifically indicated in the treatment of acne and to improve acne scarring. It is also used to tighten and lift skin, to treat wrinkles, large pores, stretch marks and telangiectasia in facial rejuvenation. It is a fantastic treatment for treating the cobblestone appearance of the skin particularly in the chin area and for treating fine lines and improving skin quality around the upper lip.
Aftercare plays an important role in reducing the recovery time.
Keep the area clean following the initial treatment session.
Cover the treated area with a moist mask and cool towel for 10-15 mins.
Use sunscreen to avoid pigmentation from sun exposure. It is recommended to use a non chemical cream with an SPF of 50.
The interval between INTRAcel treatments is 1-3 months. However the interval level is flexible and depends on the treatment levels. It is possible to achieve positive results with only 1 treatment. However 2-6 treatments can be more effective for some lesions depending on the condition of the patients skin.
Just a short note to say that I am very pleased with the results of the filler that you used around my mouth yesterday, as well as the usual Botox treatment. I really like the effect especially at the corners of my mouth. Isn’t it amazing how a subtle detail can begin to transform the face!
Thanks for all the treatment and care that you gave me. I very much appreciate it. You gave me so much confidence that I even took my glasses off at the wedding.
From the bottom of my heart or is it the heart of my bottom I want to thank you for helping me look in the mirror without getting upset and being comfortable with what I now see. My grumpy lines look so much better, so thanks. Over the last 10 years you have helped my self-esteem and confidence. I am sure you will understand what I am trying to say is above and beyond a normal thank you.
Just to say thank you so much. The INTRAcel treatment achieved results way beyond my expectations. My skin has improved dramatically and looks absolutely amazing, can’t wait to see the results from a second treatment.
I suffer from acne, along with my sisters and mother. The treatment from the Aesthetic Skin Clinic showed amazing results on my skin within a couple of months, the staff were friendly and understanding. Aesthetic Skin Clinic gave me the chance of living my life again, not hiding away or making excuses to avoid people. Aesthetic Skin Clinic has literally saved me and my family from living a life of being afraid and ashamed of your own reflection.
My story is a simple but powerful one of the amazing results achieved from a Thermage treatment. I was lucky enough to have Dr Curran complete a Thermage facial treatment on me over 4 years ago. 4 years later, I was back in his office for another consultation and Dr Curran showed me my ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos. To my absolute amazement they revealed that after all this time had elapsed I still looked better than the ‘before’ photos.
