Radiofrequency has been established as a gentle surgical method for precise cuts and coagulation in aesthetic surgery. With the impedance-controlled CURIS 4 MHz radiofrequency generator, Sutter offers the benefits of an advanced radiofrequency technology for a variety of applications.
Dermatologist R. Kasten, MD from Mainz reports about the 4 MHz radiofrequency technology:
“The range of radiofrequency surgery has now been extended to ablative, vaporizing methods in aesthetic medicine. This novel method complements the armamentarium of the dermatologist in the operating room as well as those of the plastic surgeon and ENT specialist. Elevated benign nevi may now be removed elegantly and usually painlessly. At the same time, it is possible to achieve excellent cosmetic results.“

In the following example Dr. Kasten demonstrates the ablation of a papular nevus using the monopolar ball electrode (REF 36 08 16). With its heat-resistant insulation, the monopolar ball electrode prevents unwanted tissue burns. This makes it a suitable precision instrument for the coagulation of small to larger areas.
