3DEEP® Fractional Skin Resurfacing

3DEEP® Fractional Skin Resurfacing provides a smoother, brighter skin surface (stratum corneum and epidermis) and reduced hyperpigmentation (epidermis). Simultaneously, volumetric deep dermal heating reaches the collagen fibers causing an immediate and long term tightening effect with a perceived reduction in the depth of atropic acne scars. 3DEEP Fractional Skin Resurfacing effectively treats all skin layers for an optimal result.

The FSR handpiece contains a matrix of 112 tiny electrodes, allowing for the first time simultaneous fractional micro-ablation of the epidermis, together with volumetric heating of 100% of the dermis. This technology provides the capability to differentiate between micro-ablation and dermal heating to obtain the optimal multi-layer treatment for aging skin and atrophic acne scars.

The novel 3DEEP® technology implements the interaction of multiple RF sources for controlled delivery of energy to the stratum corneum, epidermis and dermis. At the same time, the tiny (300 micron) electrodes deliver just enough energy to achieve the desired degree of ablation. The array is composed of more than 100 electrodes creating a micro-fractional mesh of ablation dots for minimal downtime and rapid recovery.

Achieve tighter, brighter, smoother skin with Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR)

The natural aging process normally begins in the mid- twenties (20s). Premature aging may occur from photodamage caused by long-term sun exposure, environmental factors such as urban pollution, hereditary and lifestyle factors including smoking, alcohol consumption and poor nutrition. Collagen breakdown is accelerated, excessive melanin (pigment) is produced, hyaluronic acid (which helps plump the skin) slows down and free radicals break down skin cells. The result is fine lines and wrinkles, impaired skin pigmentation, texture and skin tone. These problems, as well as certain other skin conditions may be improved by Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR).


3DEEP® technology safely modifies the collagen structure for a progressive long-term anti-wrinkle effect. It uses a multi-source, radio frequency energy and sophisticated software that enables delivery of controlled heat deep into the skin, while preserving the overlying outer layer of the skin (epidermis). It uniquely controls the power and depth of the RF energy delivered to the skin.

The 3DEEP®  (FSR) handpiece contains a matrix of 112 tiny RF electrodes, with each possessing a 300 micron spot size, and this technology has six  independent  radio frequency sensors that generate pulses of RF energy that actually push the heat to deeper layers into the skin, allowing for the first time simultaneous epidermal (overlying outer layer of the skin)  resurfacing for the improvement of skin texture together with volumetric heating of the dermis (middle layer of skin, beneath the epidermis ) for the promotion of collagen growth and remodeling  with resultant reduction of  skin laxity and wrinkles.


Tangible Benefits, Visible Results

3DEEP® Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR) will help your skin to look and feel younger. It helps to combat the signs of aging and sun damaged skin by:

  • improving skin textural irregularities and  tightening sagging skin
  • softening fine  lines and wrinkles
  • increasing new collagen production
  • minimizing enlarged pores
  • reducing brown spots or blotchy skin coloring  (hyperpigmentation)
  • diminishing various kinds of scars including acne or chicken pox scarring
  • reducing the depth of stretch marks




Resurfacing refers to the ablation or removal of skin tissue so new healthy tissue can be formed. Fractional skin resurfacing means that specific small areas, a fraction of the skin’s surface, are removed in a precise pattern leaving the surrounding healthy skin intact. The small sections of untreated healthy skin that are left intact facilitate rapid healing of the treated areas, resulting in very high patient satisfaction.

EndyMed’s unique 3DEEP® technology signifies a new era in anti-wrinkle and skin tightening technology. It is clinically proven to deliver tighter, firmer, lifted skin, safely and effectively with little to no downtime.

One of the main setbacks with fractional skin resurfacing has been that patients with darker skin risked de-pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation after treatment. Now, a new technology has emerged, the EndyMed 3DEEP® Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR), which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy that has been shown to be safe and effective on all skin colors, even tanned skin, and is capable of treating anything from melasma, skin laxity, deep wrinkles to scarring. It is the latest generation in the evolution of RF-based professional skin treatment devices.

Endymed fractional skin resurfacing (FSR) is a 3 dimensional skin resurfacing treatment that combines micro-fractional RF skin ablation with volumetric dermal anti-wrinkle effect. This provides deep dermal heating to the lower skin layers and micro-fractional ablation to the top layer of the skin. Endymed FSR is safe, comfortable and very effective at treating skin concerns on the face and body, with minimal downtime. Wrinkles, skin texture, stretch marks and acne scars are successfully treated with Endymed FSR. This treatment results in brighter skin, reduction of epidermal hyperpigmentation, improves skin texture, smooths wrinkles and treatment of scars.

Endymed FSR may be the ideal treatment option for you, if you want to:

  • Improve acne or surgical scars
  • Improve fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve stretch marks and loose skin
  • Minimizing enlarged pores
  • Reducing brown spots or blotchy skin coloring  (hyperpigmentation)
  • Stimulate collagen formation
  • Rejuvenate your skin with very minimal down time

Since the skin manifests differently in the various layers of the skin, each layer requires a different modality to accomplish the most effective treatment. Fractional ablation is applied to the skin for a smoother, brighter skin surface and reduction of hyperpigmentation. Simultaneously, volumetric deep dermal heating is applied to the collagen fibers causing an immediate and long term skin tightening and collagen stimulation. This combined treatment effectively treats all skin layers for an optimal result.

Prior to the EndyMed™ 3DEEP® FSR procedure, the practitioner may numb the skin using an anaesthetic cream. The skin will feel hot as the 3DEEP® FSR hand piece is used to create an energy pulse on the skin. Each pulse will last for less than a second and will create tiny controlled microablations in the epidermis whilst uniform dermal heating takes place. This is repeated to provide complete coverage of the treatment area. The skin will feel hot for an hour or so after the procedure and will also appear red. A recovery cream will be applied at this stage to help soothe and calm the skin.
Over the next few days, when the redness and swelling begins to fade, the “grid” marks (extremely tiny dots) will become noticeable. They will then turn to a faint brownish color. The skin will feel tight, itchy and also undergo a little scabbing, crusting and flaking which is completely normal and expected. This should normally be resolved after 5 to 7 days. This can be easily managed with use of a regenerating moisturizer such as SkinCeuticals and mineral make-up such as Colorescience.

The Endymed RF procedure takes between 45-60 minutes to perform depending on the treatment area.




From one week onwards the benefit of the fractional skin resurfacing should start to be noticeable with a visibly smoother, brighter, more luminous appearance. The dermal heating will be stimulating new collagen formation which will start to re-model and tighten from 4 to 6 weeks onwards leading to a gradual improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Results are cumulative and improve over time. The results are on-going and long lasting due to natural changes in the skin as new collagen continues to be produced and significant dermal remodeling occurs over a period of 3 to 6 months after the procedure. It will take about 3 months after your last procedure for the full benefits to be realized . The results can be enhanced with high level SPF (UV protection), high quality skin care products, and periodic maintenance treatments.

Endymed FSR is has an excellent safety profile, slight redness in the treatment area is common post procedure with minimal downtime. The treatment carries no side effects.

A course of  treatments normally consists of 3 to 5 sessions spaced  4 to 6 weeks apart. The number of treatments required, however, will depend on the nature and severity of the problem. We will consult with you to customize a treatment regimen to deliver optimal results.
