Endolift® is an innovative new minimally invasive laser procedure that remodels the entire face. It corrects mild sagging of the skin and fat accumulations on the lower third of the face (double chin, cheeks, mouth, jaw line) and neck, and also can be used to reduce the skin laxity of the lower eyelid. In addition it boosts skin restructuring and reduces cutaneous laxity of the face and neck.
Endolift® can also be used for areas of the body including knees, tummy, bottom, inner thigh and ankles, so if you have been troubled by hard to lose fat or sagging skin on your face or body but not been keen to have the pain, scarring and downtime associated with traditional invasive alternatives, this innovative new treatment is perfect for you.
How Does the Treatment Work?
The Endolift® treatment is endo-tissutal (interstitial) and works through specific single-use micro optical fibres, as thin as hair, which are easily inserted under the skin into the superficial hypodermis. Then laser-induced selective heat melts the fat, which spills from the microscopic entry holes in the treated area. This simultaneously causes immediate skin retraction and the reduction of skin laxity thanks to the activation of neo-collagenesis and of metabolic functions in the extra cellular matrix. The skin tightening created by Endolift® is strictly linked to the selectivity of the laser beam used, that is, to the specific interaction of the laser light which selectively hits two of the main targets of the human body: water and fat.
The duration of the procedure depends on how many parts of the face (or body) are to be treated, starting from 5 minutes for just one part of the face, up to half an hour for the entire face. There is no recovery time required and it is possible to return to normal activities within a few hours.
What Results Shall I Expect?
Results of the Endolift® procedure are not only immediately visible but continue to improve for several months following the procedure, as additional collagen builds in the deep layers of the skin. The best moment to appreciate the results achieved is after 6 months. ormally only one treatment is required but as with all procedures, the response and the duration of the effect depends on each patient and, if the physician deems it necessary, Endolift® can be repeated with no collateral effects.
“ I've been to Dr. Farrugia many times for Botox. He was able to put me at ease and listened carefully to what I was hoping the outcome to be. He is always willing to adjust the procedure each time if required. I feel like I look younger in a natural way. I couldn't be more pleased Thank you St. Marys Clinic.” Mary Deguara.
