Fractional and microneedle RF devices offer some unique benefits for aesthetic practices.
Making Waves

Among the latest tools in minimally invasive aesthetic medicine are fractional radiofrequency (RF) devices, which excel at addressing acne scarring, striae and mild to moderate wrinkling in patients of all skin types. Fractional RF uses an electrode matrix designed to create zones of thermal wounds surrounded by unaffected tissue. Like fractional lasers, the thermal wounds stimulate dermal remodeling while the healthy surrounding tissue helps promote healing.

The EndyMed iFine handpiece is specially designed to deliver 3DEEP multi-source phase-controlled radio-frequency (RF) to the delicate eye area through the EndyMed PRO platform. The iFine uses volumetric deep dermal heating to stimulate collagen production in the periorbital area for smoother skin, improved eye contour, and reduced sagging and hooding—without burning skin or heating other subcutaneous structures.

Exilis ELITE FDA-Approved for Cellulite Reduction

Exilis ELITE FDA-Approved for Cellulite Reduction

The Exilis ELITE, a radiofrequency (RF)-based, skin-tightening platform, has been granted FDA approval for temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

The monopolar focused RF device, which is engineered with advanced cooling, heats the dermis, causing collagen support tissues to remodel, tighten and firm. Using a new protocol to treat areas with underlying fat deposits, the device has also shown temporary improvements in the appearance of cellulite.

The Lutronic INFINI fractional radiofrequency-based system has received FDA 510(k) clearance for wrinkle reduction. The minimally invasive device delivers fractional RF energy with adjustable microneedles that penetrate up to 3.5 mm to stimulate collagen within the dermis while lowering the risk of thermal damage to the epidermis. The hand or foot switch-operated device features an ergonomically designed, lightweight handpiece and intuitive touchscreen for easy operation.
