EndyMed Intensif: The Non-Surgical Face Lift
The new non-surgical face lift. Surgery just got old! When flicking through the glossy pages of a magazine, scrolling through your Instagram feed or watching the latest episode of Kardashian-dominated reality TV, it's hard to tell what's 'real'. Is it Photoshop's finest or simply the good old-fashioned work of a handy surgeon?What if I could tell you, most of what you are looking at lies somewhere in between? The grey area of aesthetics often holds the secret to the 'celebrity face' that appears to age just the right amount.Stepping into the world of aesthetic beauty opens a minefield of options and it's easy to get swept away without the right guidance. Of course botox and fillers are still as popular as ever and will always, in my opinion, hold a place in retaining my youth. But sometimes we need to dig a little deeper and focus on the glue that holds our features togetherour skin.I see it all too often, great lips and an impeccable forehead embedded in what looks like crepe fabric. Neglecting the skin is the biggest cosmetic mistake one can make when focusing on anti-ageing.The most recent breakthrough in anti-ageing is the EndyMed Intensif.This procedure involves the use of a hand held device fitted with tiny micro needles energised by radio frequency. This unique combination of radio waves and micro needling stimulates the production of “ you guessed it “ collagen.We all know by now the importance of collagen. It's this “ or should I say lack of this “ which results in the sallow, sagging appearance of the skin. Once we hit 25, our collagen levels deplete at a rapid rate resulting in significant volume loss.The treatment is particularly successful on jowls, neck and dÃ©colletage. I recommend my patients have 3-4 sessions at 2-4 week intervals. Collagen takes around a month to form, so the best results are seen at the end of a treatment course.The EndyMed Intensif treatment is also successful in treating acne scarring. In the same way that wrinkles are plumped with the increased production of collagen, acne scarring is also reduced.Unlike ablative lasers, there is very minimal downtime. A little bit of redness and swelling may be present a few hours after treatment, but normal activities can be resumed the next day.The EndyMed Intensif is £300 per session, to book a consultation or find out more about this treatment, contact the clinic today on 0113 282 3300 and speak to one of our specialists.
