Results will develop over the course of 8 - 13 weeks with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to six months. Whilst our procedure will not be as drastic as surgical intervention it is an inviting alternative for those who are not comfortable with having surgery or facial injectables. Your collagen and dermal volume will increase, fine lines and wrinkles will improve and skin will be tighter and firmer than before, all in all, the facelift facial will help you to look younger.

At The Priory you can be assured that we will do everything in our power to guarantee your satisfaction.

Apprentice Winner Dr Leah Totton and her Business Partner, Lord Alan Sugar, were first to take on the 3D Skinmed Facelift Treatment in their London Dr Leah Clinic. Permanent Beauty Wales bought a machine shortly afterwards, making Permanent Beauty Wales the first and only clinic in Wales to offer this revolutionary 3D Skinmed, Non Surgical Facelift Treatment.


The 3D Skinmed treatment uses the safe, time tested energy of Ultrasound (HIFU) which focuses energy to stimulate youth renewal in the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skins surface.

The treatment aims to stimulate the growth of new collagen which in turn should achieve a tighter, firmer, more toned and youthful appearance.


What is unique about the 3D Skinmed Treatment?

3D Skinmed is the only treatment, except surgery, that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin, 3D Skinmed does this using high intensity focused Ultrasound (HIFU). In addition 3D Skinmed have adopted a three dimensional approach by utilising Radio Frequency for superficial skin tightening and High Impact Technology for deep tissue hydration.

Is 3D Skinmed Surgery?

No. Treatment is focused on the skin and the support layer below it, there is no cutting or damage to the surface of the skin.

Can 3D Skinmed replace a Surgical Face Lift?

Although 3D Skinmed is uplifting, it is not a surgical facelift. Whilst the procedure will not be as drastic as surgical intervention it is a safe alternative for those who do not want surgery or facial injectables.

Is 3D Skinmed Safe?

Thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide using this type of technology with no significant adverse events. In addition ultrasound has a strong track record in the medical world.

Who is a good candidate for 3D Skinmed?

A good candidate for 3D Skinmed is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm i.e. tired. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity make great clients. If you are unsure about your compatibility, a team member will be happy to provide you with a free consultation.

How long does the treatment take?

A full face and neck treatment takes approximately 2 - 2.5 hours, whilst a partial face treatment can take around 60 minutes. There is no downtime post treatment.

What problem areas does 3D Skinmed target?

3D Skinmed addresses any area where there are mild to moderate skin laxity issues. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, 3D Skinmed can lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more rejuvenated look overall. It is also highly effective on loose skin on the neck area and brings definition to the face and jaw line.

How long until I see results from the 3D Skinmed treatment?

Clients may witness some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and firming will take place over two to three months during which time old collagen is renewed and replaced with new stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, continued improvements can appear up to six months after a treatment.

How long do the 3D Skinmed results last?

The firming benefits achieved following the treatment should last for over 12 months but, as we know, skin continues to age, therefore yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to permanently combat the ageing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Most client will be satisfied with one HIFU treatment, however for very enhanced results you could follow a 3D-skinmed Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment with 6-8 Radio Frequency, skin tightening, treatments at weekly intervals, providing there has been a 4 month break after the HIFU treatment.

You could also follow the initial HIFU treatment with a second treatment at six months if you found your skin laxity could be tightened further.

Is there any downtime with the 3D Skinmed treatment?

With the 3D Skinmed treatment there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away.

Will I feel the ultrasound during the treatment?

Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being delivered below the surface of the skin. Clients have reported that there can be some discomfort while the energy is being applied, but the discomfort is short lived and a good sign that the collagen restructuring process has started.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for about one hour following the procedure, and a low percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Some clients may experience a slight temporary ache in their jaw.
