A study published in the Lasers in Surgery and Medicine journal has indicated that the Endymed 3Deep applicator, The Intensif, produces long-lasting contouring and lifting results in Asian skin.
The study, which was led by Dr Yohei Tanaka in Matsumoto, Japan, analysed results in 20 patients between the ages of 31-80 with just one single treatment using the applicator. 3D photography and histology were then used to fully assess volume changes in the patient’s skin six months post treatment.
The study recorded a significant amount of facial lifting on two-thirds of the face, as well as the cheeks, nasal and perioral areas. Six months post treatment, 90% of the patient participants reported that they were ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with the end results.
The applicator, which received FDA clearance in March 2014, has a penetration depth of up to 3.5 millimetres and uses a maximum power rate of 25 watts.
