A study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology has reported positive results for the Intensif microneedling fractional radiofrequency applicator by ENDYMED for improving acne scarring and skin texture.
The study, which was conducted by Dr Anwar Elawar and Dr Serge Dahan in France, used the ENDYMED 3Deep Intensif applicator to treat atrophic acne scars, skin texture concerns and pores.
There were 19 patients (13 women and six men), aged 23 to 70, who each received two to six treatments, one month apart. A standard pain scale of zero to 10 was utilised to assess pain during and after treatment.
To gather results, an external board-certified dermatologist evaluated the degree of improvement in acne scars, skin texture and pore size, according to the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale. The treated areas were also visually assessed for negative skin responses including edema, erythema, and burns.
The average pain of the procedure was reported to be 1.5 out of 10 and no adverse events such as burns or scarring were noted.
The study’s authors stated that over 57% of the participants experienced a noticeable 51-75% improvement in their skin. The subjective and objective questionnaire revealed high satisfaction from the treatment.
