ePrime Skin Tightening

Are you bothered by loose skin on your lower face? Do you notice that your jawline is starting to sag but facelift surgery isn’t for you? If so, ePrime skin tightening may be the answer

What is ePrime? The ePrime is a minimally invasive skin-tightening device that uses heat to create new collagen, elastic tissue, and hyaluronic acid in the deeper layers of skin. By building new tissue, the skin becomes thicker, firmer, and tighter.Read more...

 

What is it used for? The ideal patient for ePrime is someone who has mild to moderate looseness and crepeiness on the lower face, and/or mild sagging along the jawline. In clinical trials, the ePrime delivered 37% of the skin tightening effect of a facelift. I’ve found it to be a good option for my patients who are not ready for a facelift, not a candidate for a facelift, or simply want more subtle results.

 

What should I know before my ePrime treatment? I tell my patients to expect 7-10 days of redness, swelling, and possibly bruising.Read more...

 

What’s it like to get an ePrime treatment? For best results, and to ensure that it’s done safely and carefully, I schedule plenty of time for each treatment, about an hour and a half. First, I use local anesthetic to numb the area from the cheekbones down past the jawline. Read more...

 

What results can I expect? Studies have shown skin tightening results that are 37% as effective as facelift surgery. Patients typically see results between 3-6 months, Read more...

 

How many treatments do I need? My patients typically see results after one ePrime session. Unlike most lasers, you will not need a series of treatments.

 

How long do results last? One treatment is expected to last one to two years, although some patients may choose to return for another treatment as soon as 9 months after their first treatment if they want additional improvement.
