What is Endolift?

Endolift is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive laser procedure that serves as the best non-surgical alternative to facelifts and liposuction. Administered under local anaesthetic, a hair-thin fibre delivers laser energy beneath the skin, targeting areas like the malar bags, jowls, neck, cheeks, arms, or abdomen as well as stubborn pockets of fat. This energy creates controlled micro-damage, which does not harm the skin but instead triggers the body's natural healing processes. The healing response stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, proteins that are essential for maintaining the skin's structural integrity and elasticity. Over time, as the skin produces more of these proteins, it leads to an overall improvement of the skin's architecture, making it appear more rejuvenated and youthful.

What Areas Can Endolift Treat?

Endolift is designed to reduces sagging, wrinkles, and skin laxity by stimulating the production of new collagen leading to more youthful-looking skin. It is suitable for use on various parts of the body, including:

· Malar bags, Crow's feet, double chin, cheeks, jawline, and neck
· Abdomen, gluteus, inner thighs, elbows, knees and arms

Endolift can also be used to treat stubborn fat accumulations and reduce the appearance of cellulite. At specific settings, fat cells are liquefied and then transported to the liver, where it is processed, metabolised, and eventually eliminated from the body as waste which contributes to immediate skin tightening, once swelling subsides.

What Are the Benefits of Endolift?

Endolift offers all the benefits of a surgical facelift but unlike surgery it is significantly cheaper and has no downtime, pain or risk of complications. Results are both immediate and long-term as the treated area will continue to improve for several months following the procedure as additional collagen builds in the deeper layers of the skin. Other benefits include:

• Skin tightening and lifting
• Fat and cellulite reduction
• Improvement in skin tone and texture
• No pain, local anaesthetic
• Immediate return to work, no one will know
• No incisions, no scarring, no bleeding
• One treatment, long lasting results
• Versatility, can treat sensitive areas

What Are the Side Effects of Endolift?

As this is a minimally invasive procedure, without any incisions, potential side effects in the treated area(s) are minor and can include, swelling, bruising, redness, sensitivity, numbness and lumps in areas where fat has been targeted. All of the side effects are temporary. Swelling and redness typically subsides within a few hours to a few days after the procedure. Mild sensitivity and numbness subside within 7 to 14 days after the procedure. Some patients may notice a temporary hardening or lumpiness , especially where fat has been targeted. This resolves over a few weeks as the body breaks down the emulsified fat and eliminates it as waste.

Who will perform the procedure?

The Endolift procedure is performed by Dr. Rohit Seth (GMC 5207029), who not only has 23 years of medical experience in reconstructive and plastic surgery but is one of the UK’s leading Endolift practitioners and approved trainer in Endolift treatments. Dr. Seth has been performing Endolift procedures for over a year and a half, bringing a wealth of expertise and knowledge to ensure the procedure is conducted safely and effectively.

Why is it important for Endolift to help create collagen?

Energy-based skin treatments like lasers work by carefully applying energy to the skin, causing controlled damage. This triggers the body's natural repair process. During this healing, collagen, a key protein in our skin, acts like a scaffold, helping new cells grow and repair the area. Type I collagen, the most abundant type, is particularly important for making the skin strong and firm. It replaces the initial, weaker Type III collagen that first forms during healing. This process of replacing collagen types helps tighten and lift the skin, leading to a rejuvenated appearance. The replacement of weaker Type III collagen, with stronger Type I collagen is why results continue to improve over time.

Will Endolift work for me?

The effectiveness of Endolift is grounded in the irrefutable science of energy-based treatments and how creating controlled damage prompts the body to produce collagen, which is the key building block to enhancing skin firmness and youthfulness. Everyone heals in the same way. However, for Endolift to be right for you it is important to have realistic expectations. While Endolift can offer significant improvements, the results sought after may only be achievable from more invasive surgeries (i.e. facelifts, necklifts or liposuction). This is why a consultation is vital and why we offer free, no obligation consultations. During the consultation, if Dr Seth determines that Endolift may not meet your goals, he will communicate this to you.

What is the difference between Endolift and Facetite?

FaceTite and Endolift are both effective in tightening skin and eliminating small fat pockets, but they differ in treatment intensity, cost, versatility, downtime, and side effects. FaceTite delivers radiofrequency energy under the skin through a probe inserted via surgical incisions. Its ability to penetrate deeper allows for significant fat melting and skin tightening. However, the requirement for incisions means there's a risk of scarring and more downtime. On average, FaceTite costs around £6,000 and is more suitable for those with severe skin laxity and sagging, but at this price point, surgical alternatives may become appealing.

Endolift, utilising laser energy, is very effective for mild to moderate skin laxity and mild fat reduction. It has no downtime and can treat areas FaceTite cannot, like the malar bags. Treatment for the full face and neck, including malar bags, costs £3,000 which include a complimentary HIFU treatment and RF Microneedling. HIFU is known for its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin layers, targeting both superficial and deeper skin tissues while RF Microneedling combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy, making it effective for skin rejuvenation, tightening, and improving skin texture. The combination of Endolift, HIFU and Microneedling at half the cost of Facetite can be a very attractive option.

Can HIFU or RF Microneedling replicate Endolift's results

Endolift outperforms HIFU and RF Microneedling due to its unique approach and technology. Endolift's micro-optical fibre delivers laser energy with precision directly under the skin, allowing for targeted treatment of both superficial and deeper layers, leading to significant skin tightening and fat reduction. This precision and control are not as easily achieved with HIFU, which targets deeper skin layers for overall lifting, or with RF Microneedling, which primarily rejuvenates and tightens the skin's surface. Both HIFU and RF cannot eliminate fat. The laser energy used in Endolift not only stimulates collagen production more effectively but also causes immediate tissue contraction, offering noticeable results right away. In contrast, the results from HIFU and RF Microneedling are more gradual, often requiring multiple sessions and time for collagen to develop.

How can Endolift be used to treat cellulite?

Endolift effectively targets cellulite by disrupting fat deposits and enhancing connective tissue structure. Its laser energy breaks down fat cells, promoting their natural elimination, potentially reducing fat volume and cellulite's appearance. Moreover, the treatment stimulates collagen production for improved skin elasticity, and immediate tissue contraction reduces tension in connective tissue, leading to smoother, less dimpled skin

How long before I see results?

Results are both immediate and long-term. Immediate results are seen as a result of the emulsification of fat cells reducing skin laxity while the treated areas will continue to improve for several months following the procedure as additional collagen builds in the deeper layers of the skin. The “best” results will come around the 6-month mark as the weaker Type III collagen has been replaced with stronger Type I collagen.

Is Endolift permanent?

The results of the Endolift treatment are expected to last between 2-3 years, some doctors report results after 5 years, but current state of health and lifestyle are some of the factors that can impact the outcome. As with any non-surgical or surgical results, the treatment longevity cannot be guaranteed.

What should I choose: Endolift, FaceTite or a surgical procedure?

Although it is a minimally invasive laser procedure, Endolift and Facetite are the closest you can get to surgical results without going under the knife. Here is a side-by-side comparison:

Endolift: 1 hour procedure with local anaesthetic, no downtime, can treat multiple areas without complications including the difficult to treat malar bags and crow’s feet, excellent for mild to moderate skin laxity and emulsification of fat deposits, painless, full face including malar bags cost costs £3000, including complimentary HIFU and RF Microneedling session.

FaceTite: 1 hour procedure with local anaesthetic, incisions required, risk of scaring, moderate downtime, excellent for severe skin laxity and subcutaneous fat deposits, costs from £5,000 to £6,000.

Surgical Facelift: General anaesthesia; up to 6-8 weeks recovery time; tenderness, bruising, swelling and possibility of complications; must be done in hospital, generally excellent long lasting results, costs from £7,000 to £9,000

Why do you offer complimentary HIFU and RF Microneedling?

While Endolift alone delivers excellent results, combining it with HIFU and RF Microneedling makes a lot of sense, as it brings together the strengths of each treatment into a comprehensive skin rejuvenation protocol. HIFU targets the deeper tissue layers, offering a foundational lift and tightening, while RF Microneedling concentrates on the skin's surface, enhancing texture, tone, and the superficial layers of the skin. Endolift then acts as the pinnacle treatment, delivering high-intensity laser energy with precision directly under the skin. This allows for targeted treatment of both superficial and deeper layers, leading to significant skin tightening and fat reduction. This multi-layered approach effectively addresses a wide range of skin concerns, from surface texture to deep tissue firming, creating a more holistic and effective protocol. Additionally, incorporating periodic RF and/or HIFU treatments can likely extend the longevity of the Endolift results.

What aftercare is necessary after Endolift?

There is no specific aftercare required for Endolift. One of its greatest advantages is a quick recovery rate. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure, no bandages are required after Endolift, and you can usually return to your normal daily activities the same day. Any discomfort experienced directly following the procedure will typically disappear within 48 hours and is controllable using over-the-counter pain medication. It is recommended that a compression garment be used for 3-4 days after the procedure.

How much does the Endolift procedure cost?
