INTRODUCTIONS 5 6 7 8 [ 05 ] ABLATIVE RF RESURFACING The Skinfi nity RF from Eclipse Aesthetics uses patented In-Motion technology to reduce fi ne lines and wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks, while rejuvenating and tightening aging or damaged skin. The device's roller tip delivers focused RF energy through pyramid-shaped electrodes arranged in rows of six. Each electrode delivers precise energy to create controlled Micro-ablative Treatment Zones (MTZs). The adjustable energy output (up to 100 watts) and variable phase fi lter allow the operator to customize treatments for each patient's individual needs.

Hyaluronic acid immediately cools and hydrates skin, while the gel's Protease Technology promotes healing by degrading TNF-alpha, MMP2s, MMP9s and cytokines that impair the body's response to trauma.

The DESIRE features an 805nm diode laser with vacuum-assisted High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT) for more effi cient delivery of laser energy, while ChillTip cooling protects skin and reduces pain during treatment. The laser's three handpieces offer a range of spot sizes: The HS is 22mm x 35mm; the XC is 12mm x 12mm; and the ET is 9mm x 9mm. "With the High Speed Technology, I can treat large body areas in record time. Using the 22x35 handpiece, I can complete treatment on backs and legs in less than 10 minutes," says dermatologist Mary Lupo, MD. "The treatment is very effective, and because of the HIT technology, there is no pain."
