Skin tightening in Vancouver is done to correct sagging and lax skin. As people age, their bodies produce less collagen, a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. Collagen thus helps the skin remain taut. Both pregnancy and excess weight can stretch out skin, which can remain distended after childbirth or weight loss.
What Does Skin Tightening Involve?
EndyMed RF is a non-invasive treatment used to tighten skin, and it uses a technology called 3Deep RF, which is a platform with a handpiece attached to it. The handpiece emits radiofrequency waves that penetrate deep into the dermis where the collagen fibers are located without harming other tissues. The radiofrequency waves heat the dermis, and both stimulate the production of and reinforce the existing fibers. EndyMed RF can be safely used on both the face and the body. In addition to tightening skin, this treatment can also be used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks.
An EndyMed treatment can take anywhere between 15 and 60 minutes. It isn’t painful; most patients will need only a topical numbing cream to remain comfortable. The patient will be able to resume their usual schedule after treatment. They will start to see results within one week to a month, and those results may last for up to a year.
Some patients may need up to six sessions to get the desired results. Each session will take place one or two weeks apart.

One of the advantages of radiofrequency energy is that, unlike many lasers, it can be safely used on all skin colors.
