Frequently Asked Questions For 3DEEP Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR)
Frequently Asked Questions For 3DEEP Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR)

· · 1. What is RF and how does it work?
RF (Radio Frequency) is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The EndyMed 3DEEP
technology uses RF energy in an advanced manner that safely heats the collagen fibers in
the skin (dermis). RF has several major intrinsic advantages over other technologies - it
penetrates deeper into the skin and it is not affected by skin color. Another advantage of
RF is the ability to create volumetric heating in the deep layers.


· · 2. What are the disadvantages of current skin resurfacing treatments?
In today’s market, there are both ablative and nonablative fractional lasers that perform
effective skin resurfacing. However, there is nothing in the market today that can perform
microablation for skin resurfacing together with deep dermal heating for treatment of
wrinkles.


· · 3. What is EndyMed™ 3DEEP technology and what is its unique advantage?
EndyMed’s 3DEEP technology provides a solution to both epidermis and dermis. The
fractional skin resurfacing of the epidermis treats skin roughness, acne scars, fine wrinkles
and dilated pores together with volumetric heating of the dermis that treats fine wrinkles
and lax skin. One pulse permits simultaneous microablation with deep dermal tightening
effect.


· · 4. What are the main indications for treatment?
The EndyMed PRO FSR application is minimally invasive and intended for use in
dermatological procedures requiring ablation and resurfacing of the skin. The FSR
treatment main indications are scars, acne scars, skin roughness, fine wrinkles, dilated
pores and other textural skin conditions.


· · 5. Can I expect some reduction in pigmentation spots?
Even though pigmentation is not a main indication for the EndyMed PRO FSR treatment,
good results are seen around the world. In our clinical studies and results from doctors
around the world, we have seen improvement in skin quality, the skin looks brighter and
there is a decrease in hyper-pigmentation.


· · 6. Which areas of the body can be treated with 3DEEP Factional Skin Resurfacing?
Through our research we have found that different body areas require different energy
parameters. We have developed different energy defaults which are customized for
various body areas, assuring the most effective treatment for the face, neck, chin, decolte
and hands.

 

    7. What should I expect during the treatment?
The FSR pulse performs microablation together with deep volumetric heating. Before the
treatment an anesthetic cream is applied, even though the treatment is relatively
comfortable. During the treatment a mild sensation of heat is felt. This sensation will
disappear after a few hours. In addition, a mild tingling sensation will be felt with each
pulse.


    8. What will I feel after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment and lasting for about 2-3 hours, you will feel a sensation
of heat coming from the dermis. There will be redness (erythema and edema) of the skin
that will last for about a day.


   9. Is there any downtime?
One to two days following the treatment, small crusts will appear over the treatment area,
which will disappear after 4-6 days.


    10. Do I have to use any cooling or ointment post treatment?
No. It is not recommended to use any cooling method post treatment in order to maintain
the heat from the treatment.


    11. How many treatments are required to see the results?
Your doctor will design a series of treatments for you, usually between three to five, in
four week intervals. The doctor may plan a maintenance treatment after the completion
of the series, according to need.


    12. When will I start seeing results?
You should start seeing improvement in your skin following one month after the first
treatment, but more improvement will gradually appear as the treatment course
progresses. As new healthier and tighter collagen is formed, the skin will look more natural
and firmer. The gradual improvement in your skin will continue even after completion of
the treatment series. The best improvement is expected up to three month after the last
treatment.


     13. How long does the effect last?
In our clinical studies and results from doctors around the world, we have seen that the
improvement in skin quality is long lasting and can be found even up to 12 months
following a series of treatments. That is due to collagen production induced by the
treatments.


    14. Are there any contraindications for the EndyMed PRO FSR Treatment?
EndyMed treatments are very safe and can be performed on most patients. Treatment
should be avoided in patients with implanted pacemakers, implanted metal objects,
cardiac arrhythmias and pregnant patients and some other medical conditions. Before
starting a course of treatments, the doctor evaluates the patients and makes sure they
are eligible for the treatment.


    15. Is the treatment with 3DEEP suitable for Asian or dark skin?
Yes. RF effect on the skin is not depended on skin color or type. As of today, thousands of
Asian and dark skin patients have been treated with 3DEEP technology with vast
improvement in skin laxity and no significant adverse events reported.


    16. Can men have the treatment?
Yes. Since treatment parameters are personalized according to body area and skin
characteristics, it can be used on men as well as on women. Men should shave before the
FSR treatment and avoid shaving a week afterwards.


    17. Can treatment with 3DEEP cause burns?
Not likely. The EndyMed PRO FSR treatment is much safer than conventional resurfacing
treatments in the market today due to the unique 3DEEP technology. Thousands of
treatments were performed worldwide and no significant adverse events were reported.

Frequently Asked Questions For 3DEEP Tightening And Contouring

 

    1. Why does the skin lose it elasticity and starts to sag?

Even with a healthy lifestyle, our skin gradually loses its firm and youthful look due to

elasticity loss of the collagen fibers in it, as well as loss of tissue volume. Aging,

pregnancies, weight gain and weight loss, affect the strength and elasticity of the

collagen fibers in our skin.

 

     2. 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 EndyMed''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s 3DEEP™ technology, it is possible

to tighten loose skin and promote production and remodeling of new, healthier collagen.

 

    3. What is RF and how does it work?

RF (Radio Frequency) is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum. EndyMed''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s 3DEEP™

technology uses RF energy in an advanced manner that safely heats the collagen fibers in

the skin (dermis). When sufficient energy is delivered, the collagen will contract,

providing an immediate change in skin appearance. The treatment also triggers a

secondary process of new collagen production, leading to a significant improvement in

skin laxity. The result of this collagen remodeling is tighter and younger looking skin.

 

RF has several major intrinsic advantages over the other technologies - it penetrates

deeper into the skin and it is not affected by skin color. Another advantage of RF is the

ability to create volumetric heating in the deep layers.

 

     4. What are the disadvantages of the currently available RF-based treatments?

First and second generation RF technologies are Mono/Unipolar, Bi-Polar and Tri/Multi-

Polar (which is similar to Bi-Polar). These technologies either penetrate skin tissue with

no control through one electrode, which is painful and might result in surface or

subsurface burns and therefore requires intense cooling (Mono/Unipolar), or deliver

heat very superficially, limiting their beneficial effect (Bi/Tri/Multi-Polar).

 

    5. What is EndyMed''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s 3DEEP™ technology and what is its unique advantage?

3DEEP™ represents the latest generation in the evolution of RF-based professional skin

tightening and contouring systems.

 

3DEEP technology, comprised of multiple electrodes and RF sources, offers for the first

time a totally safe energy-based system that combines delivery of controlled heat deep

into the skin and subcutaneous layers, while preserving the overlying epidermis. The

treatment is extremely comfortable and relaxing, yet very effective.

 

Treatment parameters are personalized according to body area and skin characteristics.

 

    6. Which areas of the body can be treated with 3DEEP®?

Through our research we have found that different body areas require different energy

parameters. We have developed different applications which are customized for the

various body areas. Dedicated handpieces assure the most effective treatment and

enable treating the face, neck, chin, arms, abdomen, hips and thighs and other areas.

 

    7. What should I expect during the treatment?

During treatment, the deep skin layers are gradually heated, while the skin surface

temperature remains around 40-42°C, and you will feel a warm, pleasant sensation. Your

skin temperature will be constantly monitored. Depending on the size of the treated

area, treatment may take 30 to 45 minutes. The treatment is relaxing and pain free.

 

    8. What will I feel after the treatment?

Immediately after the treatment and lasting for about 30 minutes, you will feel a

sensation of heat coming from the dermis. Additionally, you will have a feeling of

tightening of the treated area, which may last up to 2 days after the treatment. There

may be redness of the skin that will last for about 30 minutes.

 

    9. Can I see an immediate effect after the treatment?

Yes. Immediately after the treatment your skin will look vivid and refreshed and the

treated area may look tightened for a few hours or even the whole the day.

 

    10. Is there any downtime?

No. Following treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may

notice slight redness around the treatment area, which usually disappears within a

couple of hours.

 

    11. Do I have to use any cooling or ointment post treatment?

No. It is not necessary to use any cooling method post treatment.

 

    12. How many treatments are required to see the results?

Your doctor will design a series of treatments for you, usually six to eight, in one or two-

week intervals. He/she may also plan a maintenance treatment one to three month after

the completion of the series.

 

    13. When will I start seeing results?

You should start seeing improvement in your skin following the second to third

treatment, but more 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 the

completion of the treatment series. The best improvement is expected up to three

month after the last treatment.

 

     14. How long does the effect last?

In our clinical studies and the results of doctors around the world, we have seen that the

improvement in skin quality is long lasting and can be found even after more than a year

following a series of treatments. That is due to collagen production induced by the

treatments.

 

    15. What type of collagen remodeling does EndyMed 3DEEP generate?

Published literature has shown that RF energy has been proven to increase collagen

production. The collagen production appears to peak 6 to 10 weeks post-treatment.

Histological studies comparing tissue biopsy before treatment and 3 months following a

series of Endymed treatments have showed a significant increase in the quantity and

quality of the collagen.

 

    16. Are there any contraindications for the EndyMed PRO Treatment?

The EndyMed treatment is very safe and can be performed on most patients. Treatment

should be avoided in patients with implanted pacemakers, implanted metal objects,

cardiac arrhythmias, pregnant patients and some other medical conditions. Before

starting a course of treatments, the doctor evaluates the patients and makes sure they

are eligible for the treatment.

 

    17. Is the treatment with 3DEEP suitable for Asian or dark skin?

Yes. RF effect on the skin is not dependant on skin color or type. To date, thousands of

Asian and dark skin patients have been treated with 3DEEP technology with vast

improvement in skin laxity and no significant adverse events reported.

 

    18. Can men be treated with EndyMed?

Yes. Since treatment parameters are personalized according to body area and skin

characteristics, it can be used on men as well as on women.

 

    19. Can treatment with 3DEEP cause burns?

Not likely. The EndyMed PRO has several safety features such as contact and motions

sensors that prevent skin overheating. Thousands of treatments have been performed

worldwide and no significant adverse events were reported.
