This article was updated on July 14th, 2023 at 11:35 am

As we age, our skin tends to sag. Also, we can see new wrinkles and fat accumulation in our faces and body. New technologies in the cosmetics sector enable less invasive methods to eliminate the signs of aging. Endolift Procedure is one of these less invasive procedures that help to achieve a younger-looking face.

What Is Endolift?

Endolift Procedure is a special procedure that uses a laser to restructure the skin. The procedure is minimally invasive. This means patients can go home after the procedure without hospitalization. The Endolif procedure is applied as a part of aesthetic medicine and cosmetic interventions.  

This procedure uses special fine needles and laser light to tighten the skin. These needles are called micro-optic fibers that look like a strand of hair. The single-use fibers are inserted into the superficial hypodermis of the skin. The microfibres prevent scarring after the procedure.  Laser light is applied by using these fibers to tighten up the skin.

The laser targets the accumulated fat and the water under the skin. This means the light selectively targets the desires areas under the skin. This laser does not harm any surrounding tissues. Therefore, the procedure is considered as one of the safest non-invasive procedures to have tighter skin. By applying the laser beam, the neo-collagenases procedure is activated. This procedure decreases the saggy look of the skin.

There is no need to apply any anesthesia during this procedure. However, if you have a low pain threshold, a local anesthetic cream application might relieve the initial pinching feeling. Patients can easily go back to their daily lives in 1 or 2 hours of the procedure.

How Long Does Endolift Procedure Take?

Generally, the Endolift procedure is one of the fastest procedures for skin tightening. However, the application time might vary based on the size of the application area. While partial facial procedures might be completed in 10 to 15 minutes, it might take up to 30 minutes to complete the entire face. The time will be longer for other parts of the body like arms.

How Soon Will Endolift Results Be Visible?

Just like any other cosmetic procedure, the Endolift results will be visible after a couple of months. You will feel instant relief and tightness after the procedure. But it often takes up to 6 months to see the entire results of the procedure.

As with all procedures in aesthetic medicine, the response and the duration of the effect depend on each patient and, if the physician deems it necessary, Endolift® can be repeated with no collateral effects.

Is Endolift Procedure Permanent?

The effects of this procedure will not be permanent but you can enjoy your new tighter skin for a long time. The effects of Endolift will depend on the skin characteristics and lifestyle of the patient. A healthy lifestyle that involves healthy eating and exercising can help to increase the effects of this procedure.

Endolift Procedure Results

When you have Endolift, you can achieve visible results around your neck, eyelid, under chin, and jawline. The procedure will trigger an immediate lipolysis reaction. This way, the fat accumulation under your chin will start to decrease. In addition to that, it is possible to correct the slight sagging on your face and neck.

The procedure activates new collagen formation which will create an anti-aging effect. The skin will look tighter and firmer. The fat tissue around the neck and under the chin will decrease. The jawline will look sharper and the face contour will be more visible.
