Recros Medica Inc announces positive 90-day results from its CONFORM study assessing the efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction of Rotational Fractional Resection (RFR) procedure for submental contouring. RFR is a novel, proprietary alternative to traditional approaches to treat skin laxity (loose skin).

The study results were revealed at a scientific presentation by Hema Sundaram, MD, FAAD at the 2019 American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) meeting.

In the CONFORM study, adults with mild to moderate skin laxity (loose skin) and excess fat were treated to improve submental contouring (neck and jawline area) At baseline, 99% of subjects were dissatisfied with their neck and jawline appearance, while at 7-days after a single RFR procedure, 84% were now satisfied.

Satisfaction with the appearance of the neck and jawline persisted and at the 90-day time point was 82% which represented a statistically significant change from baseline. In addition, 94% of patients at Day 90, indicated they were likely to recommend this procedure to friends and family, a media release from Recros Medica Inc explains.

“The initial results we have seen from the CONFORM study are promising,” Sundaram comments in the release. “In addition to presenting favorable safety and satisfaction profiles, RFR demonstrated visible improvements when assessed by independent, blinded physician evaluators not affiliated with the clinical trial.

“These physicians were able to identify 95% of Day 90 post-treatment images compared to baseline photographs. Digital image analysis performed by Canfield Scientific provided quantitative correlation with these blinded evaluations, indicating that 72% of treated patients had a significant reduction in measured surface area.”

The most common adverse events related to the RFR procedure included: bruising (16%), erythema (6%), contact dermatitis (6%), hypoesthesia (6%) and bleeding (4%) at the treatment site. The safety of RFR has been demonstrated by showing that there were no serious device- or procedure-related adverse events, per the release.
