Fractional radiofrequency (FRF) was developed with the same conceptual framework as fractional lasers, which is to provide focal, high-energy treatment zones within intact skin for the purpose of reduced downtime and risk. Since the heating profile of radiofrequency can in some cases be controlled with greater precision than laser, this technology has gained popularity and is perceived as a safer alternative for some applications. FRF can be applied with a variety of applicator geometries, which in turn affect the skin response. This chapter highlights the variants of FRF and summarizes the literature for aesthetic applications. (C) 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel
