What is ePRIME?
The ePRIME™ System is a minimally invasive radiofrequency (RF) aesthetic device designed for tightening aging skin. It offers unmatched precision and control of energy to stimulate the natural production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid for the restoration of a youthful appearance.
How does it work?
ePRIME delivers RF energy through tiny micro-needles into the deep dermis for a specific period of time at predetermined temperature settings. These radiofrequency micro-needles bypasses your skin’s outermost layers and deliver energy precisely to the desired area. This means that more energy can be delivered to better stimulate the deep dermis to produce more collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin.
Are you a Prime Candidate for ePRIME?
ePRIME may be an effective skin tightening treatment for sagging skin under the jowls or chin, wrinkles or fine lines around the mouth and cheek, and facial skin laxity. ePRIME can be used on all skin types.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for ePRIME skin tightening is to schedule a consultation with a doctor who has experience with all facial rejuvenation procedures. He or she will make specific treatment recommendations after a thorough examination of your skin tone and quality and a frank discussion about your aesthetic goals and treatment expectations.
Local anesthesia will be applied to the treatment area. Tiny microneedles will deliver the radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of your skin. There may be minimal bleeding may occur when these needles first puncture your skin, but this typically resolves by the time the procedure is completed.
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes based on the size and scope of the treatment area. There is minimal downtime. Patient can drive back home or to the office immediately after treatment.
What is the downtime for patients?
Due to the usage of local anesthetic to manage patient comfort, patients can drive themselves home after the treatment. The microneedles are half the size of those used to deliver neurotoxins, so patients recover from needle sticks in a few hours.
After the treatment, patients typically return to usual activities the next day. Any minor redness, swelling or focal bruising can be covered with makeup within 24 hours.

When will patients see results and how long will they last?*
Most patients report seeing improvement 6-8 weeks post treatment. Because new collagen requires time to fully develop, optimal results will not be observed for at least 3 months post-treatment.
