Tighten Your Skin with ePrime
ePrime is a device that uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin but also to create more volume by increasing the amount of collagen and elastic tissue. It has been shown to accomplish one-third of what a surgical face-lift can.
Results from the ePrimeTM can usually be achieved in one single treatment. When you arrive at the office, you will receive local anesthetic to the areas being treated. During the treatment you will not feel any pain as with the anesthetic there is usually no discomfort.
The ePrimeTM is a machine utilizing a hand piece with a disposable cartridge made up of an array of radiofrequency energy needles. The hand piece is then placed by a doctor or physician assistant on the areas that have been pre-determined and marked off to enhance the effect. Then, the needles penetrate into the skin and release heat set a precise temperature for a specific amount of time. By heating these cells to this temperature (70 degrees C for 4 seconds) each pulse stimulates a formation of new tissue both collagen elastic fibers as well as tightening existing tissue.
There is considerable swelling of the face for 2-7 days. There may be some bruising from the anesthetic injections. Usually, some effect is apparent in as little as one week but the best results develop over a 3-6 month period.
