Efficacy of fractionated microneedle radiofrequency with and without adding subcision for the treatment of atrophic facial acne scars: A randomized split‐face clinical study

Efficacy of fractionated microneedle radiofrequency with and without adding subcision for the treatment of atrophic facial acne scars: A randomized split‐face clinical study

Results

The age of the patients varied from 24 to 40 years (mean: 30.08±4.94 years). Only nine patients (36%) were males. Clinical assessment by two‐blinded dermatologists showed statistically significant improvement in the combination (FMR+subcision) group (P=.009). Patient satisfaction was statistically significantly better in the combination group (P=.001). A darkening of skin phototype was associated with a decrease in patient’s satisfaction VAS score (P=.07)

Conclusion

The combination of subcision and FMR is a safe and effective modality for mixed type acne scars. Additional randomized clinical study with long‐term follow‐up is necessary for further evaluation of FMR in combination with other procedures
