While loose skin can be resolved through surgical procedures that remove the excess skin, many people want to find non-surgical skin tightening solutions. Because loss of elasticity is directly related to a loss of collagen, we seek to restore collagen to the desired area to make it tighter and more elastic.
The ENDYMED Intensif RF Microneedling platform offers collagen production and restructuring benefits that not only provide loose skin tightening but can also improve skin tone, smooth away wrinkles and lines, resolve acne scarring, and more. During this treatment, the microneedles penetrate the skin with a degree of precision that prevents damage to the epidermis while causing a healing response in the body. Fibroblasts are recruited to the area to help repair the skin, which leads to the production of more collagen and elastin.
RF, or radiofrequency energy, provides immediate skin tightening by helping the existing collagen fibers contract. Over time, it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. As this happens, you can see continued improvement in the elasticity and appearance of your skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Stomach Skin Tightening
As part of our ENDYMED Intensif services, we offer stomach skin tightening that can improve the appearance of excess skin and stretch marks on your abdomen. This can offer improvements in the appearance and contour of your stomach without surgery.
Neck Skin Tightening
The ENDYMED Intensif system can also provide neck skin tightening to help resolve sagging skin around the neck. This area can be particularly susceptible to sun damage and gravity, which can lead to a turkey neck, double chin, neck bands, or crepey skin. By restoring collagen and elastin in this area, we can make the skin on your neck smoother and firmer.
Face Skin Tightening
As your skin starts to have more laxity, you can begin to have sagging cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, and areas of sagging under the eyes. The ENDYMED Intensif system can be used over the whole face and can even target more sensitive areas such as around the eyes and mouth. As part of our face skin tightening treatments, we can contour your jawline and make your face appear more youthful and less lined.
Frequently Asked Questions About Skin Tightening Treatments
What Can I Expect From a Skin Tightening Treatment?
After you meet with us for a consultation, you will be able to begin your RF microneedling treatment. We will use the ENDYMED Intensif handpiece to microneedle your skin and deliver RF energy. This treatment can feel warm, but the device is designed for your comfort during the treatment. The area generally only requires one pass to adequately treat the target zone. No anesthesia is required for this treatment, but some patients request a topical numbing cream.
What Is Unique About ENDYMED Inenstif?
Adjustability and Efficiency
The depth of the microneedles can be adjusted between 0.5mm and 5mm according to the area and the condition begging treated. This platform also offers a more evenly dispersed treatment as a result of non-insulated needles. The RF energy is distributed evenly through all of the layers of skin, focusing particularly on deeper layers for even more noticeable improvement in sagging skin.
Patients are able to enjoy greater comfort with this platform both because it is a faster treatment and because the non-insulated needles prevent bleeding, bruising, or trauma. This also means a shorter downtime once the treatment has been completed.
This device can be used both on the face and the body, making it a good versatile treatment for any of your skin concerns. It can be used to treat acne breakouts, stretchmarks, wrinkles and lines, acne scars, and more on all of these areas.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments that you will benefit from depends on the degree of sagging in the area you want us to treat. You may need between three and six treatments to achieve your full results. These appointments should be scheduled at least four weeks apart.
