Fast wound healing and good cosmetic results are of great importance in skin surgery. The CURIS 4 MHz radiofrequency technology enables precise cutting with minimal lateral thermal damage1,2, offering a suitable solution for a variety of applications in dermatologic surgery and plastic & aesthetic surgery. 

Dermatologist R. Kasten, MD, from Germany reports about his experiences with the CURIS 4 MHz radiofrequency generator in his practice:

“Radiofrequency surgery causes less lateral tissue damage than conventional electrosurgery. Consequently faster wound healing and a better cosmetic outcome can be expected. Studies have even shown better cosmetic results for radiofrequency skin surgery than for CO2 laser applications. Radiofrequency also improves operation comfort by enabling pressure-free cuts with minimal bleeding in a very cost-effective way.“

R. Kasten, MD, Mainz (Germany)

As seen in the histological assessment (Fig. 1 and 2) the application of the 4 MHz radiofrequency technology produces less lateral thermal damage than conventional highfrequency technology.

The ARROWtip monopolar microdissection electrodes, single-use, provide a suitable precision instrument for the application of the 4 MHz radiofrequency technology in dermatologic surgery. With their heat-resistant and ultra-sharp tips, they enable precision for fine skin and tissue incisions and coagulation. Sutter offers a selection of different models adapted to different needs in the OR.
