3DEEP Skin Tightening and Wrinkle Reduction FAQs

HOW DOES 3DEEP WORK?
You may be asking what is 3DEEP, and why is it special? Unique 3DEEP technology allows the physician to drive energy DEEP down in a controlled fashion, manipulating the energy into areas it normally would not travel. 3DEEP provides the physician with total targeted control of the energy, so it isn’t dispersed. With 3DEEP’s ability to target collagen fibers deep within your skin, a process of collagen-remodeling begins to occur, reducing those unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, and replacing them with firmer skin.

Deep heating causes the skin to contract and tighten while stimulating new collagen production, bringing fresh new skin to the surface. Collagen production continues long after treatment to further tighten skin and yield a youthful skin appearance long term. 3DEEP also facilitates smooth skin by improving blood flow, promoting breakdown of fatty deposits and promoting drainage of retained fluids within your skin.

3DEEP automatically maintains constant power, adjusting as needed to your skin’s unique form, to ensure consistent results.

IS 3DEEP SAFE?
Other skin tightening treatments often overheat the skin’s surface and can result in burns or severe pain. 3DEEP ensures concentrated energy for measurable results with less surface heating. This capability means minimal discomfort and an effective 3DEEP treatment. Safety protocols are built in to ensure the physician has complete control to:

• Maintain a safe treatment
• Prevent overheating
• Deliver excellent results

3DEEP is FDA approved in the United States for the treatment of wrinkles and there is minimal risk for side effects after treatment.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
3DEEP is designed for patient comfort. Most patients describe treatment as a ‘warm massage’. The handpiece is gently massaged over the treatment area in a circular motion and slowly warms as it delivers energy deep into the skin. 3DEEP treatment is typically repeated on each area six additional times. Your skin temperature will be monitored during treatment. Treatment may last 30-45 minutes depending on the area.

The most efficient protocol for 3DEEP is four treatments performed at 1 week intervals, followed by two additional treatments at 2 week intervals. A follow up treatment should be scheduled for 3 months after the last treatment.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
Following treatment, patients can immediately resume all normal activities. There may be slight redness around the treatment area which usually disappears in a few hours.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH 3DEEP?
3DEEP provides complete skin tightening anywhere on the body where sagging or loose skin exists. Treatment is most commonly used to firm skin on the face, neck and upper arms. It is ideal for:

• Post natal abdomen
• Loose, crepey skin under the arms
• Saggy jowl
• Crepey hands
• Fine lines around the mouth and eyes

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITY?
3DEEP is designed to be a lunchtime procedure with no downtime and minimal discomfort. You can return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Most patients will need 3-4 treatments. Please consult your physician for the advised treatment schedule for your individual case.

CAN YOU TREAT MY SKIN TYPE?
Yes, unlike many laser treatments 3DEEP uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy which is safe on all skin colors.
