If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to smooth and tighten your skin, we recommend ENDYMED. Designed to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production, this device helps rejuvenate skin from the inside out. At My Cosmetic Clinic in Castle Hill, Crows Nest, Erina, Newcastle, Nowra, Sydney City, Rosebery, and Wollongong, NSW, we’ve seen the benefits for ourselves and now want to share them with you.
ENDYMED Skin Tightening and Wrinkle Reduction
Age brings dramatic changes to your face. The outer skin (epidermis) thins even as the number of cell layers remains the same. Meanwhile, pigment-containing cells decrease in number but increase in size. And a loss of muscle tone gives a sagging appearance.
This is not to say, however, that you can’t fight back. This treatment uses radiofrequency waves to penetrate not the skin’s surface, but instead its deepest layers. This is where collagen and elastin exist, and by heating targeted tissues, the energy encourages existing collagen to contract and tighten. It also prompts the production of new collagen to restore your skin’s natural structure.
Non-Surgical and Non-Invasive
You might be thinking this sounds invasive, but it’s just the opposite: a convenient alternative to surgery that reinstates skin’s elasticity. Using a handheld device and smoothing gel, we glide the instrument over your skin in uniform, circular movements. Short pulses of electrical energy get emitted to your skin in a session that lasts less than one hour.
As soon as we’re finished, you can resume your daily activities. And in the coming weeks, collagen production will amplify to lift and contour your face, including the skin around your eyes and along your jawline.
Common Treatment Areas
These two spots deserve extra attention because they’re integral to your overall appearance. Sagging skin around the eyes can make you look fatigued, while a loose jawline can add years to your face. Tightening these spots helps rejuvenate skin for a more youthful appearance. Additional areas where treatment can be applied include:
- Under the eyes
Collagen: The Root of Skincare
You might be wondering why we need to stimulate collagen in the first place. Production of this crucial fibre slows as we age; to be more precise, collagen starts to wane after age 25. It is one of three key components in the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) and, as such, forms the scaffolding that holds skin firm and high. As collagen declines, this scaffolding begins to crumble. That’s when you see the wrinkles and fine lines that often come with time.
Collagen is linked to the increased production of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). Elastin is another protein like collagen; the difference is it provides skin with its elastic nature so that when you smile or frown, your skin bounces back into place. And HA, a key ingredient in so many skincare products, attracts and binds to water molecules. It therefore keeps skin plump and hydrated.
The Body’s Natural Healing Processes
By delivering focused radiofrequency waves to the skin, we trick the body into thinking an injury has occurred. This forms the foundation of treatment, as it kicks rejuvenating processes into high gear. You don’t see these hidden processes, but what you do see is just as important: natural-looking improvements that remain proportionate to your face shape and size. Through all of this, your skin will sustain no real injury.
An Innovative Approach to Tighter Skin
Radiofrequency offers two key advantages over other technologies. It is not influenced by skin colour, and it penetrates deeper into the skin for more visible and longer-lasting results.
You can expect to see the effects of treatment almost immediately as collagen tightens. Then, with increased production of this protein, your results will continue developing in the coming days and weeks. Most patients need six treatments, delivered one or two weeks apart, and the effects build upon each other. With time, your skin gradually lifts and tightens as the surface becomes smoother and softer.
How This Treatment Differs from Others
ENDYMED allows us to control the strength and depth of the radiofrequency waves, which makes for more precise treatment. And thanks to its versatility, this device can additionally be used to reduce wrinkles and fade acne scars. Once your treatment plan is complete, you’ll likely need maintenance sessions every six to 12 months; this time frame depends, in part, on how you care for your skin.
Supporting Your Results
Water, for instance, accounts for about 60% of collagen’s total weight, and studies show that when dehydrated, collagen loses its tensile strength. This can have serious implications for your appearance, which means drinking plenty of water after treatment may extend your results.
You should also maintain a healthy lifestyle in other ways, such as aiming for 15 to 20 minutes of daily exercise and eating small but frequent healthful meals. These habits will help nourish your skin and keep wrinkles at bay.
