eTwo Skin Rejuvenation
Radiofrequency energy has been used for decades in medicine to create heat-induced partial injury to the skin to stimulate a healing response that will induce new collagen production and tighten skin. This technology has many applications for skin tightening in the face to reduce wrinkles, improve the appearance of the jawline and neck and improve the appearance of acne scars.
The eTwo is a radiofrequency device with two modes, Sublime and Sublative. The eTwo is a very practical answer for the treatment of:
- Acne Scars
- Fullness under the chin
- Mild skin laxity
- Large Pores
The eTwo device uses radiofrequency to power Skin Rejuvenation and Skin Tightening treatments. Both treatments have low downtime, quickly visible results, quick treatment times (typically 20 to 40 minutes) and are safe and effective on all skin types and tones.
This treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to deliver heat and create a partial injury deep in the skin’s dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin. The utility of this treatment is to tighten skin with no downtime. This is an excellent treatment for under the chin if there is mild loose skin. Combined with Belkyra, excellent non-surgical results can be achieved for busy individuals who cannot afford downtime.
This treatment requires multiple sessions (4-6) to see a result and is an excellent maintenance strategy once results are achieved. If liposuction, Profound, a facelift or necklift has been performed, Sublime is an excellent maintenance treatment to slow or delay aging in the skin.
As a maintenance treatment, 1-2 sessions every 6 months are required.
Treatments are performed in office by a trained esthetician or nurse. Treatment takes 15-30 minutes.
There is no wound care after treatment.
Sublative is a minimal downtime, bipolar radiofrequency, skin resurfacing treatment. Radiofrequency energy is delivered between two points to create multiple precise and elegant injuries to the skin. This is a gentle treatment affecting about 5% of the skin surface. The treatment promotes creation of new skin cells and collagen resulting in thicker, smother, tighter skin. Improvement is seen in acne scars, deep pores, and overall skin texture.
This treatment is an excellent choice for those patients with minor skin acne scars, dull skin tone, enlarged pores, rough skin, or dark skin tone. It is also a good choice for more severely acne scarred skin if CO2 laser is not possible due to downtime requirements or history of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Sublative treatments require 4-6 sessions to see results, as the area affected in each treatment is small. The session can be continued on a monthly basis until the desired result is achieved. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months for 1-3 treatments depending on your skin.
This is an excellent maintenance strategy after CO2 laser full face resurfacing.
Treatments are provided by a trained esthetician or nurse.
Treatments produce a faint red grid pattern on the face. There is a mild burning sensation of the skin after the treatment, which lasts during the first 12 hours or so. Care instructions are given at the time of treatment.
On the day after treatment you can resume normal activities. A light camouflage make-up is often required. Oxygentix wound healing make up is available at Guelph Facial Plastics and is tailored to your skin tone.
