Young skin is very elastic and tight. This aspect is due to the presence of plenty of elastin and collagen in the skin’s extracellular matrix.
As the aging process proceeds, the skin gradually slows down its production of elastin and collagen. The skin becomes less elastic and also becomes thinner. It no longer snaps back tightly against the underlying tissues.
Changes in tissue distributions due to aging, such as loss of tissue from the face or loss of muscle from the upper arms, can lead to sagging, drooping skin.
In the past, the only way to restore a more youthful appearance was to undergo painful, invasive surgical procedures to tighten the skin. However, today there are non-invasive options to restore the skin’s tightness and elasticity.
EndyMed 3DEEP Skin Tightening
EndyMed 3DEEP uses multi-source phase-controlled radio-frequency energy to tighten skin safely and non-invasively.
3DEEP technology delivers radio-frequency energy to the deep layers of the skin, where it is converted into heat. The heat causes the collagen fibers to contract, immediately tightening and firming the skin.
Over the next few weeks, the treatment also induces the skin to synthesis increasing amounts of elastin and collagen, leading to further tightening, firming, and improved elasticity of the skin in the treated area.
Older forms of delivering radio-frequency energy to the skin often delivered significant amounts of energy to the superficial skin layers and to tissues underneath the skin.
In order to prevent burns, older radio-frequency treatments required significant cooling of the treated areas. Despite the cooling, most patients experienced extreme discomfort during treatments.
With 3DEEP technology, the radio-frequency energy is delivered in precisely targeted fractions that penetrate deeply into the skin.
In addition, treatments are suitable for all skin types.
What Parts of the Body?
All parts of the body, including the face, can be treated with EndyMed 3DEEP skin tightening technology.
What to Expect
During a treatment, the skin may feel warmer than usual, but most patients may find the heating effect to be pleasant, like a hot shower or hot water bottle.
There may be some temporary pinkness. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
In order to achieve the best results, multiple treatments may be necessary. A visible improvement will continue over the course of the treatments.
