EndyMed Medical has received FDA approval for its 3DEEP RF Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR) Applicator. An optional attachment for the EndyMed PRO, the 3DEEP FSR hand piece uses multiple RF sources to ablate the skin.
The FSR handpiece contains a matrix of 112 tiny electrodes, allowing for the first time simultaneous fractional micro-ablation of the epidermis, together with volumetric heating of 100% of the dermis. This technology provides the capability to differentiate between micro-ablation and dermal heating which appears to be the optimal multi-layer treatment to affect aging skin and atrophic acne scars.
The novel 3DEEP technology implements the interaction of multiple RF source for controlled delivery of energy to the stratum corneum, epidermis and dermis. At the same time, the tiny (300 micron) electrodes deliver just enough energy to achieve the desired degree of ablation. The array is composed of more than 100 electrodes creating a micro-fractional mesh of ablation dots for minimal downtime and rapid recovery.
