Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening

EndyMed 3DEEP™ radiofrequency technology uses focused RF to rejuvenate and create strong collagen and elastin fibres which result in tighter, smoother skin for all skin types.
 
This treatment is so popular we had to purchase a second machine to meet demand. That's because EndyMed, combined with our highly trained team, are achieving wonderful skin rejuvenation results with minimum discomfort and downtime.

EndyMed uses controlled, focused radiofrequency, through 3 distinct treatment methods, to stimulate your skin's natural rejuvenation process to achieve natural looking, and long lasting, results.

  • EndyMed TIGHTEN: Tightens mild skin laxity to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around your eye contours, jowls and neck.  
  • EndyMed INTENSIF: Deep dermal rejuvenation to redefine facial features by tackling deeper lines.
  • EndyMed SHAPER:  Firms and tightens loose skin on your body.

TIGHTEN's radiofrequency gently heats your dermal cells to rejuvenate existing collagen and produce new collagen. This improves the underlying structure of your skin for a skin tightening results which is most effective for:

Face and Neck

  • Tightens lax skin in your cheek, jowl and neck to smooth wrinkles.

Eye Contour

  • Tightens skin in the eye contour area, under the eye and above the brow to smooth wrinkles.

V-Shape

  • Tightens skin to correct loss of definition along the jawline and chin.

What happens in a treatment?

During a treatment the radiofrequency handpiece is continuously moved in circular movements over the treatment area. A gentle gel is used to aid the movement.  The focused radiofrequency energy heats your skin at the correct depth to contract existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. The treatment feels like having a hot stone massage, so you should find it to be comfortable and relaxing. Immediately afterwards your skin will appear red, like a hot flush, and you will see an immediate tightening of your skin . You can return to work or social engagements after treatment.

However, this post treatment response only lasts up to 2 days. With subsequent, repeated treatments you will build the long lasting result as more collagen is produced. Full results are seen 3-4 months after a course of 6 treatments. Results can last 1-2 years depending upon your lifestyle and you can maintain your results with a top-up treatment every 3-6 months.

SHAPER is similar to TIGHTEN, but is designed for body areas. SHAPER is most effective at:

  • Firming and tightening loose skin folds on body areas like the tummy, flanks, bottom, décolleté, and upper arms.
  • It is good for helping patients who have lost weight, but who have been left with mild skin laxity.

What happens in a treatment?

This treatment is comfortable and relaxing, feeling similar to a hot stone massage. The SHAPER handpiece is continuously moved in circular movements over the body area. The focused heat, penetrates even deeper than TIGHTEN, in order to be effective on those problem body areas - by stimulating collagen production to improve the underlying structure of your body's skin.

It takes longer for the results to show on the body than on the face, so you won't see results immediately. Full results are seen 6 months, after a course of 6 treatments, which can last 1-2 years depending upon your lifestyle. You can maintain your results with top-up treatments every 3-6 months.

INTENSIF combines microneedling and radiofrequency to lift and tighten skin while stimulating collagen and elastin production and is most effective when targeting:

What happens in a treatment?

This treatments requires a course of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

For comfort, a topical anaesthetic is applied before your treatment. The INTENSIF handpiece will then be applied to your skin, and moved across the treatment area in a regular pattern. After treatment a soothing gel will be applied to your skin to aid recovery.

Immediately after treatment your skin will be red, warm and slightly swollen, which will resolve within 2 days. You may develop micro-crusting, which will resolve in 5 days.

You will start to see an improvement to your skin complexion and skin tightening after 14 days which will progressively improve with every treatment. Results can last 1-2 years depending upon your lifestyle and you can maintain your results with a top-up treatment every 6-9 months.

You can further improve your results with an advanced combination treatment, developed by our clinical director, using INTENSIF and PRP to deliver amazing improvements in ageing skin texture, tone and scar reduction.
