Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Dr. Andrews uses an FDA-approved EndyMed machine and its Intensif microneedling handpiece to deliver radiofrequency energy to your skin’s surface. Doing so reduces or tightens:

  • Facial wrinkles
  • Neck wrinkles
  • Loose, saggy skin
  • Stubborn fat pockets
  • Other skin imperfections

Intensif by EndyMed lifts and tightens skin in delicate areas around your eyes and mouth, which can make you look years younger.

How does skin tightening work?

The EndyMed Intensif head is a device that delivers radiofrequency energy through sterilized microneedles. The heat energy penetrates outer layers of your skin to rebuild elasticity from the inside out, increasing collagen and elastin production along the way to give you tighter, younger-looking skin.

Dr. Andrews adjusts the depth of microneedle penetration, radiofrequency pulse duration, and energy levels to gain complete control over your course of treatment. This ensures you achieve optimum results, regardless of your skin type.

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

Intensif by EndyMed is a non-surgical solution for men and women seeking beautiful skin. You’ll reap numerous aesthetic benefits after completing skin tightening sessions with Dr. Andrews, such as:

  • Tighter, firmer skin
  • Reduced eye and mouth wrinkles
  • Softened fine lines
  • Better neck and jawline contours
  • Brighter-looking skin
  • Improved self-esteem

Dr. Andrews may recommend a series of three to five treatments rather than just one session, and he may suggest you schedule follow-up appointments about every four weeks to optimize results.

What should I expect during skin tightening treatments?

Before your session, Dr. Andrews goes over your medical history to determine if skin tightening or another aesthetic solution is a good match for your individual needs. Skin tightening treatments work well for all skin colors and types. If you’re a good candidate for the EndyMed Intensif skin tightening procedure, he begins treatment.

Dr. Andrews uses anesthesia to make skin tightening a comfortable experience, so you’ll feel at ease before and during sessions. Treatment typically lasts less than an hour and is minimally-invasive with little downtime.
