Why Does Our Skin Need Tightening?

WHY DOES OUR SKIN LOSE ELASTICITY AND START TO SAG?

Our skin is tightened by a structure of collagen fibres in the dermis in a network of skin cells, fibres and blood capillaries. Below in the hypo-dermis or subcutaneous layer there is supporting fat tissue with strong and elastic collagen fibres, and the circulatory system.

As we age the collagen fibres break down and become less structured and elastic, and our repair and replacement of these becomes less efficient. External factors such as UV exposure and lifestyle can make this worse. This results in wrinkles and the changes in the deeper tissue lead to sagging often known as skin laxity.

Endymed 3Deep Radio Frequency System

In body areas, changes in and around fat cells in the hypodermis, where the supporting collagen fibres and circulatory system become impaired, lead to them becoming less compact and structured causing a raised and dimpled appearance of the skin, a problem known as cellulite.

ALL RADIOFREQUENCY DEVICES ARE NOT THE SAME

Medical aesthetic practitioners and clinics normally use high specification devices certified as medical devices by a notified body in the EU and cleared by the FDA in the USA.

Also until EndyMed 3DEEP the technologies available had limitations; high level and relatively uncontrolled RF energy has been used to heat the target areas in the dermis and hypo-dermis but this can cause excessive heating in non-target areas. Technologies developed to control this can result in the RF energy being delivered too superficially in the skin. Both approaches can limit the efficacy and predicatability of treatments, cause pain, and increase safety risks.

EndyMed 3Deep was developed to overcome these issues and to enhance clinical outcomes and patient safety.
