The study included 10 subjects (Fitzpatrick ’ s skin type 2 – 3) with Fitzpatrick wrinkle and elastosis scale of 5 – 8 (average 7.3). Treatment was done with the Fractional skin resurfacing handpiece of the EndyMed PRO multisource radiofrequency system (EndyMed Ltd, Cesarea, Israel).

Fifty six percent of patients reported no pain after treatment, and the rest (44%) reported minimal pain. All patients showed signifi cant reduction in the Fitzpatrick wrinkle score. Average Fitzpatrick wrinkle score was 7.3 at baseline, 4.9 at 1 month after the fi rst treatment, 4.2 at 1 month after the second treatment, and 4.1 at 1 month after the third treatment. The score was similar at 3 months after the third treatment with a score of 4.1. When asked at the end of three treatment sessions, all patients answered they will recommend the treatment to their friends (66% “ definitely yes ” and 33% “ yes ” ).
