EndyMed FAQ SHEET
Can sagging skin be corrected non-surgically?
Skin laxity can be improved by employing novel non-invasive energy-based technologies. Our experience has shown that when using the EndyMed 3Deep technology, it is possible to tighten loose skin and promote production of new, healthier collagen.
What is radio frequency and how does it work?
Radio frequency (RF) is an advanced technology that safely heats the collagen in the skin. If sufficient energy is delivered, the collagen will contract, providing an immediate change in the skin appearance. The treatment also triggers a second process of new collagen production, leading to a significant change in skin appearance. The result of collagen remodeling is tighter, younger looking skin.
RF has two major intrinsic advantages over other technologies:
1) It penetrates deeper in the skin.
2) It is not affected by skin colour.
What is the unique advantage of EndyMed 3Deep RF technology?
3Deep RF represents the newest variation of RF technology, an evolution of RF based professional skin tightening, body contouring and fractional skin resurfacing systems. 3Deep technology, comprised of multiple electrodes, offers, for the first time, a safe, energy based system that combines delivery of controlled heat deep into the skin, while preserving the overlying epidermis.
How does 3Deep RF technology compare to Monopolar and Bipolar RF?
3DEEP™ uniquely controls the power and depth of the RF energy delivered to the skin, different to the other RF products on the market today.
Monopolar / Unipolar RF – Technology in which the RF energy flows uncontrolled through the body. This can be painful for the patient and requires intense skin cooling during the procedure.
Bipolar and X-polar RF – Technology in which the RF flows superficially and is less efficient. It requires cooling to protect the skin.
3DEEP® RF – Technology which results in deep, controlled and targeted energy flow with minimal energy flow on the skin’s surface. No cooling is needed.
What areas of the body can be treated with 3Deep RF?
The 3Deep technology is efficient for most body areas. Through our research, we have found that different body areas require different energy parameters. We have different applications which are customized for various body areas.
What should I expect during treatment?
During the procedure, the deep skin layers are gradually heated, while the skin surface remains around 40*C (hot shower temperature). Your skin temperature will be constantly monitored. Depending on the size of the treatment area, treatment make take between 30-45 minutes. The treatment is relaxing, pain free and carries no side effects.
What is the recovery time?
Following treatment, you may immediately resume all routine all activities. You may notice slight redness around the treatment area, which usually disappears in a couple of hours.
How many treatments are required to see results?
According to your treatment program, we will offer a series of treatments, up to six, in intervals of one to two weeks. You should start to see improvement in your skin following the second treatment and additional improvement will gradually appear as the treatment course progresses.
As new healthier collagen is formed, tighter, more natural looking and firmer skin will be produced. The gradual improvement in your skin will continue even after completion of the series.
How long does the effect last?
The improvement in skin quality should be long lasting. However, maintaining the results of, for example, body contouring or body tightening treatments, is also subject to a person’s calorie intake, exercise and lifestyle. So, a balanced diet, proper exercise program and healthy lifestyle will help to maintain the desired treatment effects.

s FSR (Fractional Skin Resurfacing) right for me?
EndyMed’s Fractional Skin Resurfacing procedure is ideal for treatment of sun-damaged skin, reduction of hyperpigmentation, improvement of skin texture, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and treatment of acne scars.
Which body areas can be treated with FSR?
FSR is designed to treat those body areas which are frequently exposed to the sun: face, neck, decollete, hands, or areas susceptible to acne scarring.
How many treatments are required to see results?
Results of FSR can be seen as quickly as one week following a SINGLE treatment. Additional skin improvement is noticed over time-with continuous improvement up to 3 months after treatment. For more damaged skin or acne scars, 1-2 additional treatments will be needed to enhance the outcome of the treatment.
What should I expect after FSR treatment?
Following a FSR treatment, you will be able to cover the treatment area with makeup and resume normal activities about 30 minutes after the treatment is concluded. Any minor skin swelling or redness will disappear with 2-3 hours after the treatment.
After 2 days, you may notice small microscopic crusts on your skin. These crusts are easily covered by makeup and will resolve naturally within 5-7 days after the treatment. Within one week after the treatment, your skin will show the benefits of a brighter smoother look.
How long does the FSR treatment last?
The improvement in skin quality should be long lasting, however, proper skin care and sun protection will help preserve the results.
