Would Evolastin (ePrime) be safe for me?
Since ePrime is a new radiofrequency device that does skin tightening, it remains to be seen how it shapes up in the battle between Thermage, Exilis, Ultherapy and ePrime. There isn’t enough data yet to know if one is clearly better than the others.
I was just attending the ASDS national meeting in Chicago and there was a lot of debate on these devices regarding effectiveness. Each device has its “experts” speaking for it and they all disagree with one another. Furthermore, almost all of the “experts” are being paid by the companies in some form or another so it’s difficult to believe that they are objective.
I think we will have more results in and data over the next year or two and will know which are truly effective and which just have good marketing. I’m still writing the article on Exilis.
On the safety front, all are safe for all skin types because they are radiofrequency based and not lasers (light).
Hope this helps, Dr. I
