Do you notice loose skin on your face, neck, and body? Are you discouraged by skin laxity and seeking a way to correct this common sign of ageing? If so, you could benefit from EndyMed, a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that triggers natural cell rejuvenation and helps create smoother, firmer skin in virtually any area of the body. Our professional team at YourSkinRN in Kitchener, Ontario is prepared to help you reclaim your youthful appearance with this transformative treatment option.
What Is Skin Tightening With EndyMed?
EndyMed takes skin tightening to a different level with radio wave energy, also called RF. These radio waves emit substantial heat and help warm the skin up to 50°C. When directly applied to tissue with the specialized RF handpiece, this heat helps jumpstart your body’s natural repair properties within cells.
Structural proteins like collagen and elastin, which are often scarce once you grow older, are produced by your body to reinforce your cells and create tighter skin. This can help take years off your appearance as your skin becomes smoother and looks younger with each treatment session.
A normal appointment takes between 30-60 minutes to complete. The length of your appointment depends on which areas of the body you wish to treat and whether you choose to treat multiple areas at once.
While you will feel a warming sensation, treatment is completely painless and requires zero downtime during recovery. Results can appear in a matter of weeks and, once visible, last for months. This treatment is considered safe and effective for almost every patient and can be performed multiple times to create and maintain your ideal image.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
The EndyMed system is equipped with multiple handpieces to target different areas of the body. Due to this innovation, we can successfully treat sagging skin in most areas of the body. A smaller handpiece is used to treat the face and neck, where wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity can be dramatically improved.
The most common facial areas treated are the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck. We can even treat the skin around the mouth and eyes, which is thinner and more sensitive. This system also includes handpieces for the body. These attachments are larger but deliver the same concentrated RF energy.
We usually treat areas like the thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, chest, and abdomen, where sagging skin, wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks can be reduced in just a few treatment sessions. Our experienced team will determine whether we can use EndyMed to address your specific areas of concern during an initial consultation.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
In general, we recommend that patients pursue a treatment every two weeks. The number of treatments you receive will depend on your unique situation, but we find that most patients need three to six sessions to see their desired results. Our staff can give you a better idea of how many sessions you may need once they examine your areas of concern.
Can I Perform This Treatment Myself?
Unlike other cosmetic treatments, EndyMed skin tightening is safe for patients to perform. This gives our patients the option of self-administering treatment. If you wish to perform treatment personally, one of our staff members will show you how to operate the EndyMed system and observe your first session.
We will be present and available for questions at each appointment. Patients who choose this option typically experience a more flexible scheduling process as well as a significant treatment discount. They also see the same exact results as patients who have a staff member perform the treatment.
If you do not wish to use the EndyMed system personally, our staff is always available to perform your treatments. You can learn more about using the system and share your preferences during your initial consultation.
How Long Will Results Last?
Your individual results will vary based on your treatment plan and unique circumstances. However, just one treatment can provide results lasting six to nine months in total. A full treatment plan builds on the success of each previous appointment. This means that you could see results lasting well over a year thanks to new collagen growth and tissue rejuvenation.
While the ageing process will continue eventually, many of our patients find that regular skin tightening sessions help them maintain their ideal image and enjoy smooth skin as long as they desire.
Can I Combine EndyMed With Other Treatments?
This treatment can easily be combined with a variety of other services. Our professional staff can help recommend other treatments that may enhance the final results of your skin tightening session.
We find that other skin-rejuvenating options, such as some skincare products and peels, help give your skin a fresh glow after treatment. In addition, anti-ageing cosmetic options like Botox and dermal fillers help further erase wrinkles and fine lines in the face and neck areas.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
This treatment option is considered ideal for adult men and women who are concerned about skin laxity in various areas of their bodies. This loose skin is typically the result of the natural ageing process and collagen breakdown, which causes the skin to sag over time. A good candidate should be healthy and free from any medical or skin conditions that could interact negatively with the treatment process.
This treatment is not ideal for patients who have large amounts of excess skin due to weight loss. It is also not recommended for patients who are currently pregnant. If you’re unsure whether this treatment option is right for you, our staff can help you evaluate your candidacy during an initial consultation.
What Should I Expect?
While each patient’s experiences are unique and results may vary, we know you’re probably wondering what you can look forward to when you choose EndyMed. Here’s a general idea of a normal skin tightening treatment process from start to finish:
At the beginning of your treatment process, you’ll meet with one of our talented nurses to discuss your goals. This initial consultation allows us to examine your areas of concern and determine whether this treatment is right for you.
In addition, we’ll be able to answer any questions you have. We’ll review your medical history and, if you’re approved for treatment, we’ll suggest a treatment plan that fits your needs and your schedule. Once this consultation is complete, you can begin looking forward to your first treatment.
Preparing for an EndyMed treatment session is incredibly straightforward for most patients. In general, we recommend that you protect your skin from prolonged sun exposure and unnecessary irritation for at least two weeks before your first appointment. This ensures that your skin will be healthy and that the treatment will not cause further irritation.
We recommend wearing sunscreen whenever you are outdoors and limiting your time in the sun to avoid sunburn, fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and skin cancer, all of which are common side effects of harmful sun exposure. If you are pursuing skin tightening treatment on your face, we recommend that you avoid trying any new or untested skin or makeup products before treatment. This will decrease your risk of developing a skin irritation prior to your appointment.
Our team will examine the target area before your first session to ensure that your skin is healthy and ready for treatment. Finally, you may be given personalized instructions before your first appointment, which may include avoiding certain medications. It’s important that you follow these instructions carefully to see optimal results.
On the day of your appointment, you should avoid wearing any makeup in the target areas. We will examine your skin and apply a topical numbing agent to keep you comfortable during treatment. If you choose to perform the treatment yourself, a staff member will give you a basic orientation and remain in the room while you perform your first session.
If you choose to have a staff member perform your treatment, they will use the appropriate handpiece to deliver warming RF energy to the target areas. The handpiece is passed over the target area against the skin. Thanks to the advanced technology used in the EndyMed system, the heat from the RF waves passes through the outer layers of your skin and concentrates in the lower layers.
This means that you will not feel the intense heat, but your cells will begin the restorative processes that will tighten your skin and contour the treated areas. Most patients describe their treatment process as a gentle warming sensation. Once you are finished, you can return to your normal daily activities with zero downtime.
You may notice that your skin is slightly pink after treatment. This will fade over the next few hours, after which point should not notice any other residual side effects. You should plan to stay out of the sun for at least 24 hours as your skin begins to heal.
We also recommend that you avoid the gym and strenuous workouts for 24 hours to give your skin the time it needs to begin the recovery process.
Approximately two to three weeks after your first appointment, you can return to our office for your next EndyMed treatment. We separate your appointments by at least two weeks to optimize your results while providing adequate time for your skin to recover and rejuvenate after each session.
Most patients report their first noticeable results four to six weeks after their first treatment. This may include smoother skin, fewer wrinkles and lines, and a tighter appearance in the treated areas. Your results should continue to improve with each subsequent session until your personalized treatment plan is complete.
At this point, your final results will appear up to three months after your last appointment. You should notice that your areas of concern are noticeably improved and that your skin appears firmer and more contoured than before.
Final results can last 12-18 months or longer, depending on your unique situation. As natural collagen breakdown resumes, your final results will begin to fade. You can choose to pursue follow-up treatments to maintain your ideal image. Many of our patients experience excellent results with just a few sessions per year, and we can easily work with your schedule and preferences to suggest a sustainable and convenient treatment plan.
