Why Choose EndyMed?

Loose skin can be one of the most frustrating aspects of the natural aging process. Skin laxity on the face and body occurs when natural collagen production drops off as you age, typically starting at around ages 30 to 40. Fortunately, at Luxxe Wellness & Beauty, we believe that EndyMed is a radio frequency device that can aid in your body tightening, skin tightening, body contouring, and facial tightening goals.

EndyMed: Radio Frequency Microneedling

EndyMed is a radio frequency microneedling device that gently, yet effectively induces the production of collagen deep within the dermal layers. This device is unique among other similar RF microneedling treatments because the depth of the microneedling penetration can be customized based on the density of the skin being treated.

What can endymed do for you?

In addition to the settings on this device being customized to meet your precise needs, this treatment is also incredibly flexible as it can be used to address multiple issues on both the face and the body. Some of the most common uses for this treatment include:

Body Tightening and Body Contouring

Body contouring and body tightening goals can sometimes be difficult to achieve with at-home methods. Many people may try to tone and tighten the skin by using over-the-counter creams or toning exercises, only to find that these at-home techniques are not effective. This RF microneedling treatment can be used to tighten body tissue, including cellulite reduction. This is because the thermal energy generated with RF technology will subtly melt away small layers of fat while increasing collagen production, allowing for the skin to become smoother and more supple.

Skin Tightening

Skin tightening on the body is also a major challenge, particularly for those who are older or who have recently lost significant amounts of weight. Surgical treatments to tighten the skin on the body are invasive and painful, and also tend to have prolonged recovery times with heightened risks of scarring. However, a minimally invasive treatment such as this RF microneedling system can effectively tighten skin on all areas of the body, from the neck down to the knees.

Facial Tightening

Facial tightening is another goal for those who are experiencing age-related changes in the texture of their skin. Many people will first notice skin laxity on the mid-face, beneath the chin, and on the neck. Tightening the skin in these areas can effectively erase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, and other challenges presented by aging.

What Else Can This Treatment Address?

In addition to tightening the skin on your face and body, EndyMed is a system that can also be used to address other problems. Along with cellulite reduction and body contouring, this treatment can also be used to address acne scarring and stretch marks, which are two very challenging concerns for many people.

Acne Scarring

There are a few different types of acne scars, but the scars that respond best to RF microneedling treatments are atrophic scarring. Atrophic scarring causes depressions or pits in the skin that are difficult to treat because the scarring starts deep within the dermal layers. A treatment such as this can essentially restructure broken collagen bonds and enhance collagen production to smooth the surface appearance and texture of the skin.

Stretch Marks

Similarly, stretch marks are caused by a lack of collagen in the skin. Microneedling alone is known to be a good option for mild stretch marks on areas of the skin with thin tissue, such as the breasts and inner thighs. However, you’ll be able to achieve better results with an RF microneedling treatment because of the deeper thermal penetration from the RF energy. Even very severe stretch marks can be virtually erased with the treatment.

What Can You Expect From Treatment?

This is a minimally invasive treatment and is considered well-tolerated by most patients. To prepare for your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to any desired treatment location to ensure your comfort for the duration of your appointment. Typically, your treatment will take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on how many areas you are treating. You will likely require several treatment appointments to achieve optimal results. If you’re treating both the face and the body, you should expect to have several treatments spaced at least four to six weeks apart.

What Should You Do Before and After Treatment?

Before your treatment, you will need to stop using any chemical exfoliants or retinoids for at least two weeks to ensure your skin is healthy on the day of your appointment. You’ll also need to avoid contact with the sun unless you are wearing SPF 30 or higher. After your treatment, you will need to take good care of your skin, such as by using aloe vera gel or other soothing lotions. You should avoid hot water and contact with the sun for at least one week immediately after your treatment.

Are You a Good Candidate?

Most people who are dealing with skin laxity on the face and body are good candidates for this particular radio frequency microneedling treatment. This is because this treatment is highly customizable and can be tailored to meet the precise needs of your skin tone and skin type. Good candidates include those who have relatively healthy skin, those who are not pregnant, and those who have mild to moderate concerns.

Reduce Skin Laxity and Other Concerns with RF Microneedling

Whether you are interested in body tightening or you want to achieve facial tightening or skin tightening, this treatment system is a good choice for you. In addition to skin laxity, this treatment can also be used to address cellulite reduction, stretch marks, and acne scarring. The results of this treatment are also long-lasting.
