Background and Objectives: Effective treatment for atrophic (depressed) and icepick acne scars requires treatment of both epidermis—for roughness, texture and hyperpigmentation, and the dermis—for collagen remodeling. All first generation radiofrequency systems allow nonablative RF treatment while a few others allow simple bipolar Fractional RF skin resurfacing. The FDA cleared multisource radiofrequency therapy system (EndyMed PRO, EndyMed Ltd., Cesarea, Israel) allows, for the first time… Expand
Peri-Orbital Non-Invasive and Painless Skin Tightening-Safe and Highly Effective Use of Multisource Radio-Frequency Treatment Platform
TLDR
The iFine handpiece of the EndyMed PRO, multi-source phase-controlled radiofrequency (RF) for Non-invasive, pain free, skin rejuvenation of the periorbital area shows good to excellent improvement, and subjects satisfaction was assessed by the global aesthetic improvement scale (GAIS) and by post treatment questionnaires.

In vivo histological evaluation of non-insulated microneedle radiofrequency applicator with novel fractionated pulse mode.
TLDR
The current in vivo study confirms that the EndyMed PRO Intensif applicator effective and predictable tool to create cylindrical micro zones of coagulation in the papillary and reticular dermis with minimal damage to the epidermis. Expand
Management of acne scars: fulfilling our duty of care for patients
TLDR
The different acne scar types are discussed, and their relationship with skin anatomy and histology, in relation to the different treatment options available, to offer guidance for appropriate treatment decisions. Expand

In vivo animal histology and clinical evaluation of multisource fractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing (FSR) applicator
TLDR
The data show the histological impact and clinical beneficial effects of simultaneous RF fractional microablation and volumetric deep dermal heating for the treatment of wrinkles and acne scars. Expand
Sublative rejuvenation: experience with a new fractional radiofrequency system for skin rejuvenation and repair.
TLDR
The sublative rejuvenation technique impacts only up to 5% of the epidermis and most of the effect is in the dermis, so healing is rapid and downtime is minimal, and is an effective alternative for patients with darker skin who may be at risk for hyperpigmentation from laser treatments. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that a longer postoperative interval (12-18 months) prior to assessment for re-treatment be advocated in order to permit optimal tissue recovery and an opportunity for collagen remodeling. Expand
Successful treatment of acneiform scarring with CO2 ablative fractional resurfacing
TLDR
A novel ablative 30 W CO2 laser device uses a technique called ablative fractional resurfacing (AFR), combines CO2 ablation with a FP system, and produces more modest results than traditional carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers but with fewer side effects and shorter recovery periods. Expand

TLDR
3DEEP is a next generation RF technology that provides targeted heating to deeper skin layers without pain or other local or systemic side effects associated with the use of the earlier generation RF systems available today. Expand
Evaluation of a novel fractional resurfacing device for treatment of acne scarring
TLDR
A fractional approach to CO2 laser resurfacing is evaluated for the treatment of moderate to severe acne scarring to address the shortcomings of ablative and non‐ablative device modalities. Expand
Novel multi-source phase-controlled radiofrequency technology for non-ablative and micro-ablative treatment of wrinkles, lax skin and acne scars.
TLDR
Clinical studies of the multisource fractional RF application have shown significant effects on wrinkles reduction and deep atrophic acne scars after 1-3 treatment sessions, proving long term collagen remodeling effect. Expand

TLDR
The most common complication observed was postoperative erythema, which occurred in all patients, lasting an average of 4.5 months, and is a relatively safe procedure with a low complication profile. Expand
Complications of Carbon Dioxide Laser Resurfacing
TLDR
A retrospective study of 110 patients, who underwent laser resurfacing with a carbon dioxide laser between 1999 and 2013, found a much lower incidence of postoperative hypoand hyperpigmentation found in many studies, and confirmation of low rates of serious complications should encourage clinicians to treat these adverse outcomes appropriately.
