At LG Aesthetica, we specialize in offering patients a number of different options for anti aging skincare, and overall skincare rejuvenation. One of the biggest issues with aging, is the presence of unwanted, loose, hanging skin. And as the years go by, and a patient gets older and older, often, their skin will become looser and suffer the ill effects of gravity. As technology has improved over the years, and lasers have been integrated into many areas of cosmetic medicine, skin tightening and skin rejuvenation have become some of the more highly sought-after areas of cosmetic medicine. One of newest and most effective procedures, that we are proud to now offer includes RF Microneedling or radiofrequency microneedling, and RF Skin Tightening using the EndyMed device. This amazing method of skin rejuvenation, which combines the traditional process of microneedling, healing the skin from the inside out using specialized radiofrequency waves that penetrate the skin’s surface and help to restore and rejuvenate the patient’s skin to its former, youthful glory.
What is RF Skin Tightening?
At LG Aesthetica, the EndyMed RF device has become a game-changer for patients, in need of all different types of skin rejuvenation and treatment. From those with loose hanging skin, to individuals suffering from the presence of unwanted scarring, blemishes, acne issues and a whole lot more! RF (radiofrequency) skin tightening works through an innovative process in which we are able to precisely target areas of loose, hanging skin and excess tissue, around the face, neck, jowls, eyes, mouth, arms and other areas throughout the body such as the hips, buttocks and thighs. The technique also helps patients to alleviate a number of conditions caused by aging. In fact, RF skin tightening offers patients a non-invasive alternative to more costly, far more invasive surgical procedures like a facelift, neck lift and other body lifting procedures.
The procedure can also help patients to alleviate the presence of cellulite build-up as well. While RF skin tightening is not considered a weight loss procedure, it does help to tighten and sculpt – and as a byproduct, the RF energy is able to eliminate small pockets of fat build-up within the treatment area. Often, this procedure is used after a dramatic weight loss or liposuction procedure, in which there may be excess skin and some minor fatty tissue present.
How Does the EndyMed Pro Treatment Work?
As one of the leaders in non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation, EndyMed offers patients an amazing alternative to surgical skin tightening, allowing them to simply undergo a few sessions of laser treatment, as opposed to going under the knife and having to deal with a long, drawn out recovery period. It offers phase-controlled radio waves to help target problem areas by reinvigorating collagen under the skin. The treatment is often recommended for patients with loose skin near the face and neckline but can be used for other areas including your chest, breasts, buttocks, arms, thighs and much more. During your consultation, our team will begin by performing an analysis to understand what your specific treatment needs might be, and to determine what type of treatment you will need to have done.
Through this careful analysis, we are able to tailor each and every single EndyMed session, specifically to meet the needs of every single patient, and provide them with the non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening they need. The Endymed Pro device is designed to use rays of targeted heat to promote collagen stimulation, collagen being a naturally occurring compound that degrades over time. It’s simple, safe, and effective for patients and remains a top-tier solution to tighten skin. During the treatment itself, the device, despite using heat energy, is set to a comfortable 40 degrees Celsius in order to cool the treatment area, and ensure the patient is comfortable. Many patients describe the feeling as being slightly warm, but without any pain or other issues. Generally, a session will last approximately 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area, and what type of treatment is actually needed. Generally, patients are recommended to undergo 4 to 6, 40-minute sessions to maximize their skin tightening and body contouring results. Each session should be done, 1-2 weeks apart.
Recovery & Results
Generally, once the procedure is completed, patients can expect to have visibly tighter, skin, that’s free of unwanted blemishes, and marks. In addition, the treatment area should look and feel tighter and more taught, while essentially having turned back the clock on the skin by years. its also important to understand that the procedure generally doesn’t damage the top, outer layer of the skin much at all. And while it might cause some minor abrasions, it doesn’t cause excessive swelling, redness, or soreness in the target areas. In rare cases, patients will point to subtle redness but this disappears in less than 2-3 hours. The specialist keeps an eye to analyze the skin before penning a detailed post-procedure plan.
