Endolift is a laser treatment that treats minor skin sagging and fat accumulation on the face by remodeling the deep and superficial layers of the skin. This treatment can also increase collagen production, resulting in a tighter, more youthful appearance. It is an alternative to surgical lifting and is ideal for people who want a non-surgical facelift.
Endolift can treat other parts of the body as well, such as your neck, knees, tummy, inner thighs, and ankles.
What are the benefits of Endolift?
Endolift can help you achieve surgical lifting results while avoiding the disadvantages of traditional surgery, such as a longer recovery time and a higher rate of surgical complications. Most people prefer the Endolift treatment because it:
- does not require incisions or anesthetics.
- provides immediate and long-lasting results.
- can be performed in one session with no downtime.
- can be combined with other aesthetic treatments.
How is Endolift done?
During the procedure, your doctor places microscopic micro-optical fibers the size of a hair under the skin into the superficial hypodermis (the deepest and thickest layer of skin). These fibers generate microchannels in the skin that operate as a light conduit, allowing the laser device to more effectively transmit laser energy to target water and fat in the body.
The extracellular matrix, which is the network that provides physical and biochemical support to the surrounding cells, is heated by laser radiation, which encourages new collagen formation while also increasing the metabolic activities of the extracellular matrix. The laser device can also remove a small amount of fat from small pockets of fat in the face or throughout the body, tightening the skin and removing fat. The fibers are removed and thrown away immediately after treatment.
The duration of the procedure depends on how many sections of the face or body need to be treated. It can take around 5 minutes for only one portion of the face and half an hour for the entire face.
What should I expect after the Endolift procedure?
There is no recovery time necessary, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities within a couple of hours. The effects are noticeable right away and continue to improve for several months after treatment. The results are not only instant and long-lasting, but they also improve over time as more collagen is built in the deeper layers of the skin.
The results take 3-6 months to appear fully, but this is highly patient-dependent, and some people report immediate results. In most cases, only one treatment is required. However, the response and duration of the outcomes vary from patient to patient, and Endolift can be repeated as needed with no side effects.
Your clinician may propose a second session or a combined treatment plan with another device for even better results.
