Dual-frequency Ultrasound for Rosacea


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


A "study evaluated the efficacy and safety of dual-frequency ultrasound with impulse mode, for improving skin hydration and erythema in Asian subjects with rosacea and acne" published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine and the results state that "dual-frequency ultrasound with impulse mode appears to be effective and safe for improving skin hydration and erythema in patients with rosacea and acne." [1]

We hope to hear more about this treatment. If you have used this treatment, please volunteer and post your experience in this thread by finding the REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. 

Does anyone find it odd that we haven't heard hardly any anecdotal reports of rosaceans discussing ultrasound for rosacea? If the clinical papers are correct that a dual frequency ultrasound improves phenotype 2 or phenotype 3, you would think we would have heard more about it by now. There was a short thread discussing it in 2015 at RF that dismissed the treatment. Sull asked this same question in 2014 at RF and no one responded. It must simply not be an effective treatment since if it was we certainly would have heard more by now. The above recent clinical paper on this subject using it in Asia stimulated me to ask what any of you may think about this subject?

Dr. Bowe who volunteers on the RRDi MAC recommends using the Truth Vitality Lux Renew and states on her website, "I also recommend it to my patients for use in between our appointments to maximize their results from in-office procedures! It can complement procedures for tightening (Ultherapy, Thermage), redness (V-beam) or acne (Peels and Theraclear), allowing you to get more out of each treatment and extending the results so you can space those treatments farther apart."
