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

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
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?

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
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for about one hour following
