Skinmed FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

What is unique about the 3D-skinmed treatment?

3D-skinmed is the only treatment that can specifically

target the deep foundation below the skin similar to that of

cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface

of the skin utilizing focused Ultrasound (HIFU). In addition

we have adopted a 3 Dimensional approach by utilizing

Radio frequency for Superficial skin tightening and Impact

technology for deep tissue hydration.

 

Is 3D-skinmed surgery?

No. Its focussed on the skin and the support layer below

it without cutting or damaging the surface of the skin

Can 3D-skinmed replace a face lift?

Although 3D-skinmed is Uplifting it is not a facelift. .

Whilst our procedure will not be as drastic as surgical

intervention it is an inviting alternative for those who are

not ready for surgery.

 

 

Is 3D-skinmed safe?

Thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide

using this type of technology without any significant

adverse events. In addition, ultrasound energy has a

proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for

more than 50 years

 

Who is a good candidate for 3D-skinmed?

A good candidate for 3D-skinmed is someone with skin

that has relaxed to the point of looking, and often feeling,

less firm i.e. tired. Typically, those in their thirties and

older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are good

candidates. If you are unsure about your compatibility

please ask staff for a free consultation.

 

How long does the treatment take?

A full face and neck treatment takes approximately 60

minutes, whilst a partial face treatment can take around

30 minutes. There is no downtime post treatment.

 

What problem areas does 3D-skinmed target?

3D-skinmed addresses any area where there are

mild to moderate skin laxity issues. Specifically, by

reconditioning and renewing the skin from within,

3D-skintech can lift the brow, which in turn reduces

excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a

more rejuvenated look overall. It is also highly effective

on loose skin on the neck area and brings definition to the

face and jaw line.

 

How long until I see results of the 3D-skinmed

treatment?

Clients may witness some initial effect but the ultimate

lifting and firming will take place over 2-3 months, as

collagen is renewed and replaced with new stronger

collagen. As this collagen building process continues,

continued improvements can appear up to 6 months

following a treatment.

 

How long do the 3D-skinmed results last?

The firming benefits achieved following the treatment

should last for over 1 year, but skin continues to age.

Yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to combat

the ageing process.

 

How many treatments will I need?

The treatment protocol is on 3D-skinmed Focused

Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment followed by 6-8 Radio

Frequency treatments at weekly intervals following the

initial treatment. For the majority of clients this is sufficient

however a further Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment may be

required dependant on the extent of the skin laxity and

the body’s response to treatment

 

Is there any downtime with 3D-skinmed treatment?

With the 3D-skinmed treatment there is no downtime. You

are able to return to your normal activities right away and

there are no special aftercare that you need to take.

 

Will I feel the ultrasound during the treatment?

Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually

tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being

delivered below the surface of the skin. Clients have

reported that there can be some discomfort while the

energy is being applied but it is short lived and a good

sign that the collagen restructuring process has been

started.

 

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for about one hour following

the procedure, and a low percentage of clients may have

slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these

are mild and temporary in nature.
