All radio-frequency treatments use two electrodes, one internal and one external, to exchange electrical currents at a radio-frequency—one close in frequency to that used in microwaves. The electricity delivered via radio-frequency heats the tissues it targets, which tightens and contracts the skin and the fibrous septal bands which secure the skin to the body. The overall effect, therefore, is a tightening of the skin. InMode FaceTite has shown to be superior to any other radio-frequency devices. A single treatment with the FaceTite RFAL can achieve up to 37% contraction of the surface area of the skin. This is possible due to the controlled use of radio-frequency assisted lipoplasty (RFAL). It can provide more skin contraction than any other device on the market. Its precision and ability to target specific areas of application is second to none and provides almost a zero risk of skin burn due to the control of applications to the skin and deep tissues.
EndyMed is another approach that uses radio-frequency energy, however this is delivered to the surface of the skin. It uses a pattern of tiny pins to resurface the skin in a fractional method, sending targeted heat deep into the skin to resurface and tighten the skin. This is another non-surgical solution for helping to treat aging and acne scarred skin.
Combining this two efficient procedures allows us to combine a two fold approach to scarless skin tightening by treating both the subdermis (FaceTite) and epidermis (EndyMed) in one procedure.
For patients who have facial skin laxity and evident sagging along the jawline & neck this procedure is ideal. A small gauge cannula inserted through tiny discreet poke holes delivers the radio frequency heat, liquefying fat and contracting tissues. We see immediate results following this combination procedure, as well as a gradual improvement in the following year to follow. Some swelling can be expected, but when compared to a facelift or neck lift there is very minimal downtime. Also, because there are no incisions performed there are no sutures to remove later.
