A few months ago I was introduced to a salon in Greenpoint, called Legs Eleven, which specialises in IPL hair removal and treatments. Friends and founding partners, Sue and Federica, launched the business in August 2012 with the simple value proposition of ‘world-class IPL technology at a low price’.
I was recently invited by Legs Eleven to experience a non-invasive, anti-ageing Endermolift treatment from LPG, dubbed as a ‘workout for your face’. The words ‘non-invasive’ and ‘anti-aging’ had me immediatly interested! I wanted to find out more.
With a regimented skin care routine passed down from my mother, I have always taken great care of my skin. However at the age of 29 I have noticed the rapid aging of my skin. I don’t believe I look ancient, but the fine lines on my forehead have become more prominent and the texture of my skin is not as plump anymore.
This is inevitable, as from the age of 25, fibroblasts, which are your skins youth cells, start to become inactive, resulting in the deterioration of your body’s natural levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Eventually resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging and a dull complexion.

The Endermolift treatment is designed to reawaken your sleeping youth cells and reverse your skins natural ageing process. It has the ability to act deep within the dermis, and is scientifically proven to increase the natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid by 80%. By the natural stimulation of fibroblasts, your skin’s collagen and elastin production is also boosted by 46%. My face was ready to be reawakened!
During my visit, my skin was cleansed and prepped for a full face Endermolift treatment. By utilising the latest in motorised flap technology, the Endermolift delivers gentle micro-pulses to the skins surface, which rejuvenates the skin from within. At first this is quite a strange sensation, but gentle enough on the skin. After some time you start to feel the re-energising and natural heating up of the skin.

The technology is able to adapt to your specific facial contours, simultaneously targeting problem areas, offering a customised and effective anti-ageing solution. Different sized nozzles are used for different areas of the face and also deliver varying pulses.
The Endermolift treatment offers more than 40 fast and effective treatments, ranging from 10 to 30 minutes for both men and women. The great thing about this treatment is that it directly acts on all visible signs of skin ageing and target zone treatments are available. Therefore if your only concern is the wrinkles around the eye area and your forehead, you are able to treat those specific areas.

After my treatment my face immediately looked replumped and radiant. My fine lines and wrinkles were smoothed however still visible. I can imagine that after a few sessions they would become even less noticable. The week following my treatment I could still see the results.
I am often asked by brides what skin care treatments I would recommend, before their wedding day, that would give them a radiant and fresh complexion. I am always hesitant to advise any treatments besides a hydrating facial, as you never know how the skin is going to react. The is a great non-invasive treatment for those brides wanting to achieve a refreshed look on their special day.
