As we grow older, the majority of us start to notice small wrinkles and sagging skin in the facial area, particularly around the eyes and chin. This can undermine our self-confidence and body image, but luckily, it doesn’t have to be permanent. With the effective EndyMed skin tightening treatment, you can restore your facial features to their smooth and youthful state. Here at My Cosmetic Clinic with locations all over NSW, we offer three different options.
Why Are Skin Tightening Devices Needed?
The most important and abundant protein in our skin is called collagen. It keeps the different layers of our skin taut, preventing them from sagging or wrinkling. In our youth, the body produces plenty of it, but if you are over 20 years old, production decreases by 1% every year. What’s more, women who have hit menopause experience another 30% decline in collagen production. Knowing these facts, it’s not hard to see why our skin changes over time.
Many people decide that they want to do something about it once this aging process sets in. One of the simplest ways to keep your face looking smooth and evenly textured is by undergoing tightening treatment. By making use of radiofrequency technology, you can restore the structure of your skin and reverse the negative changes you may have experienced.
Why and How Does EndyMed Work?
During this treatment, radiofrequency waves are directed into the skin through a handheld device by using the 3Deep technology, which allows multiple layers of skin to be targeted at the same time. The energy is transferred vertically to the deep areas of skin so that the top layer remains cool and safe. You won’t absorb much radiofrequency because of this innovative approach. Instead, the energy is directed straight at your collagen fibres, where it is needed.
When hit with the radiofrequency energy, your collagen fibres located in the middle layer of the skin will shrink and the body will be tricked into thinking that it has been injured. That’s when it will start to form lots of collagen fibres around the affected area, in an effort to rebuild the skin. Many of them will remain behind and help to restore the strong and firm structure of your skin.
Every time you have a treatment, the results will compound until you have the desired amount of collagen and your youthful look back. It’s important to remember that although the body is tricked into thinking there’s an injury, this is actually not the case. You won’t be able to see a difference on the surface, but your body will work behind the scenes to restore itself from the inside out.
The delicate area around your eyes is prone to wrinkling but quite tricky to treat. Previously, the only option was surgery, but with Ifine EYES, there is a non-invasive solution available. With a small handpiece, the radiofrequency waves will be gently transferred to your skin and you won’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Ifine JAWLINE and Under Chin
Another area that changes in many people is the jawline and chin. This treatment has a double focus on both tightening and fat cell reduction so that you can get your chiselled chin back in no time. As with Ifine EYES, there is no downtime involved after your appointment.
Ifine PLUS FSR
This combination treatment includes target resurfacing and deep dermal remodelling of the area around your eyes, thereby counteracting the aging process and removing any imperfections. Your doctor or nurse will be able to tell you whether this is the best treatment for you and whether you should use it in combination with one of the other options.
The Treatment and The Results
As mentioned, skin resurfacing treatment is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any downtime. In fact, you can complete your appointment within 30 to 60 minutes and walk out of the clinic without needing to rest further. To ensure that the entire process is comfortable and pain-free, some numbing cream will be applied to the area before getting started.
When You’ll See Results
Most people require several sessions because the resurfacing technology works cumulatively. Each application builds on the previous ones to create the desired tightening effect. In most cases, six treatments, one to two weeks apart, are recommended, but your practitioner will discuss the details at your initial consultation. You’ll immediately start noticing an effect because the collagen fibres in your skin tighten due to the heat.
The long-lasting effect will come from the collagen your body re-builds in the weeks after your first session. Every week, these effects will compound to create that enviably smooth and even skin texture. These gradual changes are a great advantage because your family and friends won’t instantly notice that you’ve been to the clinic. Instead, they’ll be surprised at how you seem to get younger and younger over time!
How Long Your Results Last
If you follow the full course of treatments that your practitioner recommends, you are likely to see long-lasting results of 12 months or more. But this will depend on other factors, such as how well you take care of your skin in the months after your sessions. In particular, avoid smoking, excessive exposure to the sun, alcohol consumption, and salty foods. If you follow the guidelines for a healthy life, nothing stands between you and perfect skin.
