For wrinkles, fine lines and loose skin, skin tightening treatments are in high demand. At Athena Plastic Surgery, our skin tightening treatments utilize radiofrequency technology that creates smoother skin without surgery or downtime.
What is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?
There are several skin tightening options on the cosmetic market, but radiofrequency technology is a non-surgical, non-invasive solution that corrects wrinkles and fine lines from the inside out.
At Athena Plastic Surgery, we use the EndyMed™ Intensif for our skin tightening treatments. The Intensif is the most advanced radiofrequency therapy currently available and can emit energy deep within the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin – proteins in the skin that improve smoothness and tightness.
How Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work?
When delivered directly to treated areas, radiofrequency energy completely bypasses the skin surface and safely heats deeper layers, protecting the outermost layers of skin and reaching depths that cannot be achieved with other skin tightening alternatives.
Treatment with the EndyMed™ Intensif not only heats and smooths tissue using safe, controlled energy, but the stimulation of new collagen and elastin production can continue to improve skin over time.
Am I a Good Candidate for Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?
Candidates for this treatment are typically in good health with no contraindicating medical conditions and who have cosmetic concerns such as:
- Mild to moderate loose skin on the face, neck, arms, or abdomen
- Lax skin due to pregnancy or significant weight loss
- Wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, and other superficial skin concerns
For men and women who do not qualify for or do not wish to undergo surgery, radiofrequency may be a solution. During your consultation, our medical team will assess your individual condition and goals to determine if skin tightening is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As skin tightening does not irritate or damage the surrounding skin, no healing or recovery is necessary. Slight redness or swelling may occur in treated areas but should subside in a day or two, and most patients return to normal activities immediately afterward.
When Will I See Results?
As the EndyMed™ Intensif helps rebuild fresh, rejuvenated skin from the inside out, the process is gradual. Results can take several weeks to be fully evident, but are proven to last for up to a year. Maintaining a good skin care regimen and taking proper precautions in the sun can help add longevity to your results.
Multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. Our medical team will create a treatment plan for you that is tailored to your individual needs.
