Nonablative cutaneous remodeling using radiofrequency devices.

Author information

Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, Washington, DC 20005, USA.


In recent years, several new radiofrequency devices have been introduced for treatment of a variety of skin conditions, particularly, skin wrinkling and laxity. These nonsurgical systems induce tissue tightening and contour changes through dermal collagen remodeling without disruption of the overlying epidermis, obviating a significant recovery period or risk of serious adverse sequelae. As such, radiofrequency-based systems have been used successfully for nonablative skin rejuvenation, atrophic scar revision, and treatment of unwanted hair, vascular lesions, and inflammatory acne.
