3D SKIN TIGHTENING
Radio Frequency is a highly reliable energy source that has been used in several medical applications for almost 100 years, such as electrosurgical devices used for tissue coagulation. With Radio Frequency, the heat generated is controlled and solely directed at the targeted area for treatment, therefore achieving more efficient energy usage without scattering heat to surrounding tissues.
This provides a quicker treatment, allowing the fat tissue to reach optimal temperatures faster. Once the fat cells start to break down, oxygen molecules are produced thus allowing the fat cells to melt and drain through the lymphatic system.
Radio Frequency also has an immediate effect by tightening the framework of the skin by contraction of the collagen fibres and tissue retraction therefore aiding remodelling and rejuvenation. It also facilitates cellulite and stretch marks by improving blood flow to the treated area and promoting the breakdown of fat cells aiding the reabsorption and drainage of fatty deposits and retained fluids.
Radio Frequency is safe and non invasive on both face and body parts. Clients will be advised at the time of consultation how many treatments are needed per treatment area.
Even with a healthy lifestyle and minimal sun exposure, our skin gradually loses its firm, youthful look. Aging, cumulative sun exposure, multiple pregnancies, and weight fluctuation are all factors which affect the strength and elasticity of the collagen fibers in our skin. This, in turn, causes the wrinkles and sagging skin.
Skin laxity can be improved by employing novel non-invasive energy-based technologies. Our experience has shown that when using the EndyMed 3DEEP technology, it is possible to tighten loose skin and promote production of new, healthier collagen.
Radio frequency (RF) is an advanced technology that safely heats the collagen in the skin (dermis). If sufficient energy is delivered, the collagen will contract, providing an immediate change in skin appearance.
The treatment also triggers a second process of new collagen production, leading to a significant change in skin appearance. A result of collagen remodeling is tighter, younger looking skin.
RF has two major intrinsic advantages over other technologies: 1) it penetrates deeper into the skin and 2) it is not affected by skin colour.
Earlier types of RF technology either penetrated too deeply into the tissue, which can be painful and may results in surface of sub-surface burns, or they deliver heat too superficially which limits their clinical benefit.
RF represents the newest variation on RF technology, an evolution of RF-based professional skin tightening and body contouring systems.
Technology, comprised of multiple electrodes, offers, for the first time, a safe, energy-based system that combines delivery of controlled heat deep into the skin, while preserving the overlying epidermis.
Treatment parameters are personalised according to body area and skin characteristics.
During the procedure, the deep skin layers are gradually heated, while the skin surface remains around 40° C (hot shower temperature). Your skin temperature will be constantly monitored. Depending on the size of the treatment area, treatment may take between 30-45 minutes. The treatment is relaxing, pain free and carries no side effects.
Following treatment, you may immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice slight redness around the treatment area, which usually disappears in a couple of hours.
According to your treatment program, your physician will offer a series of treatments, up to six, in intervals of one to two weeks. You should start to see improvement in your skin following the second treatment and additional improvement will gradually appear as the treatment course progresses.
As new healthier collagen is formed, tighter, more natural looking and firmer skin will be produced. The gradual improvement in your skin will continue even after completion of the treatment series.
The improvement in skin quality should be long lasting. However, maintaining the results of, for example, body contouring or body tightening treatments, is also subject to a person’s calorie intake, exercise and lifestyle. So, a balanced diet, proper exercise program and healthy lifestyle will help to maintain the desired treatment effects.
