Question: After losing over two stone, I noticed that my jaw line isn’t as defined as it used to be and my cheeks look a bit droopy compared to old pictures of myself before my weight loss. Needless to say, while I am happy with my new weight, I am not happy with the aging side effect. Since I’ve never had anything done before and have a low tolerance for pain, I’m looking for a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that’s painless, as in no needles, and is not going to make my face look like I’ve blatantly had something done, i.e. wind tunnel face. Is there such a treatment? – Krista, London
Answer: EndyMed 3DEEP’s non-surgical skin tightening treatment instantly gives more natural-looking definition to your jaw line and puts a beautifying boost to your cheeks for up to 48 hours. After the treatment, it keeps working its collagen-regenerating wonders for up to six weeks. Without any downtime, needles or topical anesthetic, this painless facelift treatment is perfect for anyone who wants an immediate effect with long-lasting results and since it lifts gradually over a series of treatments, no one will notice.
This non-surgical, skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency in a controlled manner to safely heat the lax collagen fibres (a net-like tissue that keeps skin taut) in the dermis and subdermis, deeper layers of skin where collagen is found. Once the energy is delivered, the lax collagen fibres recoil (contract), instantly lifting the skin, just like shrinking a jumper in a warm wash. What’s more, this non-surgical, skin tightening treatment also triggers new collagen production (neocollagenesis) without burning the epidermis (outermost layer of skin).
And it’s so painless that before having this non-surgical, skin tightening treatment, a cool gel is placed on your face after your make-up is wiped away. That’s it. There is no need for numbing creams, waiting time, etc. Thus, this skin tightening treatment lasts around 10 minutes. And it feels like a delicious 10-minute warm facial massage.
Side effects: some patients may experience hot flushing on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes after a session. Patients with metal work, pace makers, etc. should refrain from having the treatment.
EndyMed 3DEEP’s non-surgical, skin tightening treatment, £200 per facial treatment and £300 per face and neck treatment, is available at Revere Clinics in London. Six non-surgical skin tightening sessions are recommended with a week in between each one and if you book a course of five, the sixth treatment is fabulously free.
