Non-Surgical Skin Tightening With EndyMed™
Developing loose skin and fine lines on the face and neck is something that can occur a number of different ways, including aging, sun damage, and genetic predisposition. Regardless of the cause, these effects are rarely welcomed. Many patients fear the only recourse for eliminating the beginning stages of skin inelasticity is with surgical intervention, something most are hesitant to try. Fortunately, there is another solution, one that offers little discomfort, minimal downtime, and gradual, natural-looking improvement: EndyMed™ treatments from our skilled medical laser practitioner, Terry Almeida.
Our skin care practice offers medical EndyMed™ treatments under the professional guidance of our skilled physicians, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim and Dr. Christopher Pavlou. The innovative facial and body rejuvenation method offers patients an opportunity to improve facial contour and reduce common signs of aging, including fine lines and loose skin on the face, neck, and decolletage, as well as enhance skin elasticity on the upper arms and abdomen. This technologically advanced device works by using radiofrequency energy to heat the collagen located deep within the dermis, causing the fibrous protein to contract without harming the upper layers of the skin. This energy also stimulates collagen production to help produce a firmer, more youthful appearance over time.
One of the best features of EndyMed™ is the brief downtime. Most individuals experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, due to the ability to target specific concerns without harming surrounding tissues. As a result, patients typically return to normal activities immediately following treatment or as soon as they feel comfortable. Some redness will likely be present in the treated area; however, this typically fades within a few hours. We recommend a series of treatments be performed for optimal results, generally in intervals of one to two weeks.
EndyMed™ can help qualified candidates see improvement in skin laxity, fine lines, and facial contour typically beginning after the second treatment. Additional enhancement should continue gradually until well beyond completion of the procedure.
