Have You Heard of Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Body Contouring?

The natural aging process can bring with it loose skin, uneven skin texture, wrinkles, lines, and a lackluster complexion. These changes don’t come about all of a sudden; they creep up as time goes by. But just because these changes are a natural part of aging doesn’t mean that you have to accept them. For centuries, people have dreamed of being able to tighten their skin and renew the more youthful appearance they used to have. Now, thanks to a process known as radiofrequency skin tightening, that’s no longer a dream, but a reality, and it’s available at Luxxe Wellness & Beauty.

What Are Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Treatments?

Loose skin, otherwise known as skin laxity, is one of the main reasons why so many people look older than they actually are. Loose skin often appears dull and dehydrated and contributes to those lines and wrinkles that are notorious signs of aging.  As you age, your body starts to decrease its production of collagen and elastin, which means that it’s no longer able to bounce back to a firm, smooth appearance when you make a facial expression and then release it. This process usually becomes noticeable between the ages of 30 and 40, though everyone is unique. Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments address all of these concerns. We’re happy to offer EndyMed, a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device that helps our patients with body contouring, skin tightening, and facial skin tightening. We think it’s one of the best skin tightening treatments available, and many of our patients agree.

How Does RF Skin Tightening with EndyMed Work?

EndyMed uses radiofrequency energy to gently and effectively encourage the body to increase its natural collagen production within the deeper layers of the skin. It helps skin look younger from the inside out.  Surgical treatments to tighten loose skin are invasive and require considerable recovery time. Minimally invasive RF treatments can tighten the skin on the face as well as skin on just about any other area of the body. Tightening the skin can greatly diminish wrinkles, lines, creases, sagging, and other challenges brought on by aging. Although there are some other RF microneedling procedures and instruments out there, this one is unique because of the customized treatment options it offers.  In particular, EndyMed allows us to customize the depth of the microneedling penetration, depending on the density of your skin. In this manner, it can deliver an advanced RF skin tightening treatment that other methods can’t duplicate.

Body Contouring and Body Tightening

Body contouring goals can be difficult to achieve at home with creams and lotions. Many patients come to us frustrated after working out and doing toning exercises regularly with no results.  RF treatments with EndyMed can reduce cellulite and tighten body tissue, thanks to the thermal heat energy that the treatment generates to melt fat and increase collagen while smoothing the skin. Not only can this RF energy device tighten and tone a person’s facial skin to smooth lines and wrinkles, but EndyMed can serve additional purposes, including body tightening and contouring to reduce the body’s circumference.  The radiofrequency energy that the EndyMed device delivers is deep, focused, and controlled, providing superior collagen remodeling capabilities that produce visible results and a tighter, more toned body.  The treatment applicators offer solutions for aesthetic concerns in the abdomen, hips, outer and inner thighs, waist, knees, arms, and décolleté. The EndyMed system uses revolutionary impedance monitoring to continuously adjust its energy output as needed. This further personalizes body contouring and skin tightening treatments and provides optimal results that are also long-lasting. 

What Else Can RF Energy Treat?

Skin tightening and body contouring aren’t the only treatments that radiofrequency energy is used for. RF treatments with EndyMed can also address conditions and concerns like:
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scarring
  • A soft jawline
  • Fractional skin
  • Saggy/droopy skin around the eyes
Stretch marks happen due to a lack of collagen in the skin. Since RF treatments boost the body’s collagen production, they are an effective treatment for them. With the deep penetration of RF energy, even severe stretch marks can disappear. A similar thing happens with acne scarring. There are a few different types of acne scars, and the type that responds to radiofrequency treatment with EndyMed is atrophic scarring. Atrophic scarring is characterized by pits or depressions in the skin that go deep into the subdermal layers. RF energy treatments restructure broken collagen strands and enhance their production, helping to smooth out the skin’s surface.

What to Expect from Treatment

This treatment is well tolerated by our patients because it is minimally invasive and convenient.  During the treatment, we will start by applying a topical numbing cream to your skin in the treatment area to make sure you stay comfortable. The average treatment session takes between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on which areas you’re treating and how many areas will be treated.  Make sure to take good care of your skin after each treatment, keeping it moisturized and staying out of the sun for at least a week. Most of our patients have several treatments in order to achieve and maintain their desired results. These treatments are typically spaced four to six weeks apart.
