ENDYMED™’s innovative 3DEEP radio frequency based technology is a state of the art treatment for skin tightening, body contouring, and acne scar reduction. This non-surgical technology for fractional and non-ablative wrinkle treatment tightens the skin on both the face and the body. Dr. Steven E. Zimmet provides this safe, proven and effective anti-aging aesthetic treatment to his patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.
New Clinical Study
A new clinical study conducted in Japan, and published in the official journal of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, has confirmed the effectiveness of 3DEEP radio frequency technology in skin tightening and enhancing elastin density. The study, conducted by the the Clinica Tanaka Plastic, Reconstructive Surgery and Anti-Aging Center in Matsumoto, Japan, was designed to assess the effectiveness of ENDYMED™ PRO multi-source phase controlled RF device on skin rejuvenation and tightening in Asian-type skin.
The research team, led by Dr. Yohei Tanaka, involved in this study applied cutting edge 3D imaging and histology to quantify the improvement in skin tightening, cheek lifting, and the improvements in elastin fiber quantity in the skin. As an experienced dermatologist offering 3DEEP RF technology to his patients in Austin, TX and other areas, Dr. Zimmet closely followed the results of this study to ensure the best interests of the patients.
How the Study was Conducted
The study was performed on 10 Japanese patients, including nine women and one man, in the age group of 26 to 51 years. The RF device employed in the study was ENDYMED™ PRO, which is an FDA cleared system for non-ablative skin tightening of the face and body, fractional skin resurfacing, and micro-needle RF skin remodeling. Following the treatment of these 10 patients with this technology, the research team performed 3D imaging to evaluate the post-treatment improvements.
Significant improvement was noticed in terms of skin tightening and lifting. The treated area improved markedly in comparison to the untreated area. 80 percent of the patients experienced significant improvement, while the remaining 20 percent experienced moderate improvement. The treatment was performed without anesthesia or contact cooling, but most of the patients did not report any pain. No side effects were reported, and the patients remained comfortable throughout the treatment.
Conclusion of the Study
Dr. Tanaka and his team concluded that the ENDYMED™ 3DEEP RF treatments can help promote new elastin production in a safe and effective manner and achieve skin rejuvenation by reducing skin laxity and wrinkles. Elastin is among the key proteins of connective tissue that plays a critical role in providing elasticity to the skin. Due to aging and other factors, the skin experiences loss of elastin fibers.
The results of this study have shown an increase in the quantity of elastin fibers produced in the skin following the 3DEEP RF treatment. Apart from showing substantive reduction in wrinkles and skin laxity, the study also demonstrated that the treatment using ENDYMED™ PRO 3DEEP RF device was fairly comfortable for the patient and revealed no accompanying side effects. 3DEEP is the first FDA cleared RF technology that employs multi-phase controlled RF generators to achieve optimal outcomes in a painless manner.
PDT is Better to Clear Actinic Keratoses (Skin Cancer)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) appears to better clear actinic keratoses (AK) at three months after treatment than cryotherapy, says a meta-analysis. In the meta-analysis involving 4 studies and 641 patients having 2174 AKs treated with cryotherapy and 2170 AKs treated with PDT, researchers compared the PDT with cryotherapy; and found that patients treated with PDT had a 14% better chance of complete lesion clearance at 3 months following therapy as compared to cryotherapy for thin AKs on the face and scalp. However, the side effect of PDT is that it is associated with local pain owing to photosensitizer activation during light exposure.In view of easier procedure with cryotherapy and side effect with PDT, more research needs to be done to assess and confirm the efficacy and tolerability of both treatments.
Eating Lots of Fruits and Vegetables = Attractive Glow
According to a new study, a much healthier and attractive glow can be achieved by eating lots of fruits and vegetables, instead of sun tanning. Two primary ways in which skin coloration can be achieved is by melanization or tanning, and ingestion of carotenoids – organic pigments found in carrots, apricots, oranges, mangoes and spinach. Researchers wanted to understand whether carotenoid coloration or melanin coloration is preferred by people while judging facial attractiveness. In several experiments, participants rated the high-carotenoid version of each face as more attractive and also the high-melanin faces as more attractive. The study, however, does not describe the amount of portions of fruits and vegetables that can have an effect on skin tone. Sun tanning is anyways associated with adverse effects; therefore, healthy consumption of fruits and vegetables seems to be the best choice to achieve glowing skin.

Dr. Steven E. Zimmet is the lead author of “Core Content for Training in Venous and Lymphatic Medicine,” which has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed and indexed journal, Phlebology: The Journal of Venous Disease. The co-authors, very prominent physicians who are recognized experts in the field, are Drs. Teresa Carman (Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine), Anthony Comerota (Jobst Vascular Institute), Craig Feied (Georgetown University School of Medicine), Michael Jaff (Massachusetts General Hospital), Mark Meissner (University of Washington School of Medicine), Robert Min (Weill Cornell Medical College), Suman Rathbun (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center), and Thomas Wakefield (University of Michigan Health System).
The work has received endorsements from both the American College of Phlebology and the American Venous Forum, two of the largest and most influential medical societies devoted to vein and lymphatic diseases in the world.
The major vein societies in the world share a common mission to improve the standards of medical practitioners, the educational standards for teaching and training programs in venous medicine, and the quality of patient care related to the treatment of venous disorders. With these goals in mind, the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM) convened a multi-specialty task force with representatives from dermatology, interventional radiology, phlebology, vascular medicine and vascular surgery, with the objectives to agree upon the core content in venous and lymphatic medicine. Dr. Zimmet, President of the ABVLM, chaired this task force.
The Core Content covers the areas of knowledge that are essential to practice in the field of venous and lymphatic medicine. It can also serve as a template for the development of curricula for medical school, residency and fellowship education, and serve as a framework for training programs, accreditation standards, and board certification testing.
The Core Content is divided into five key categories:
- Basic sciences
- Diagnostic evaluation
- Treatment modalities in venous and lymphatic medicine
- Clinical sciences
- Other components and core competencies of the practice of venous and lymphatic medicine
Dr. Zimmet and co-authors, along with a larger group of advisors, developed the work using in-depth reviews of the latest available medical literature combined with their own expertise and experience in their areas of specialty.
