In a study published in the Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications (September 2015), Isabelle Rousseaux, MD, treated periorbital signs of aging in 11 subjects using the EndyMed PRO treatment platform with the iFine handpiece (EndyMed Medical). The iFine handpiece is specially designed to deliver multi-source phase-controlled RF to the delicate eye area.
Using the global aesthetic improvement scale (GAIS) and post-treatment questionnaires filled out by subjects, Dr. Rousseaux found that 91% of patients showed good to excellent improvement as a result of the treatment. The study also showed that 55% of patients reported that they were very satisfied with the treatment and results, and 45% were satisfied, while no study subjects reported any dissatisfaction. The periorbital RF treatments were well tolerated by the subjects, who reported minimal or no pain, and there was little to no downtime after the treatments.
