Radio frequency technology has begun to revolutionize the ways in which skin care professionals can help patients battle the affects of aging. In particular, many cosmetic clinics are now offering radio frequency therapy for the removal of wrinkles and fine lines, creating an intriguing alternative or complement to dermal injectables and laser skin treatments.
As we age, sun exposure, environmental factors, and stress affect the skin’s elasticity and strength, causing unwanted lines in our faces. Radio frequency technology, which has already been tested as a viable treatment for stretch marks, has recently gained traction as a wrinkle removal solution, too. In August of 2009, the FDA approved the EndyMed PRO™ (previously Imagine) radio frequency treatment for the reduction of facial wrinkles.
The first radio frequency therapy of its kind to be approved in the U.S., the EndyMed PRO™ uses a unique three-dimensional pattern of radio frequency to induce collagen production, which fills the wrinkles we gain as we age. The radio frequency treatment provides a non-invasive, safe and painless option to improve the youthfulness of your skin. A clinical study of the EndyMed PRO™ wrinkle reduction system evidenced significant wrinkle reduction in over 80% of treated patients. This reduction was shown three months after the treatment ended, suggesting long-lasting results. The EndyMed PRO™ system promises as personalized experience, immediate improvement, and long-term results.
