EDGE by ENVIG. Home use device for facial treatment
Alex Levenberg, M.D. Physician’s Center, Plastic Surgery Dept., Tel Aviv, Israel / November 2021
Objective: Evaluating the safety and efficacy of the EDGE device for facial rejuvenation treatment.
Methods: Six female subjects underwent facial treatments twice a week for six–eight weeks using the EDGE device. The device includes three treatment levels designed explicitly for facial treatments. Results were objectively recorded and analyzed with a skin-analyzing imaging system.
Results: Following the EDGE facial treatments, an improvement in facial texture and facial wrinkles was achieved and analyzed by the Visia imaging system.
Conclusions: Findings demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the EDGE treatment protocol for facial skin rejuvenation and texture improvement. Treatments resulted in smoother skin with a more even texture and wrinkles reduction.
Over time, skin layers show wear and tear caused by aging, injury, and environmental factors.
The result is wrinkles, age spots, uneven texture, and discoloration.
RF energy has long been known to encourage collagen and ECM (Extra Cellular Matrix) production in the dermis.
Radiofrequency and resurfacing treatments restore a youthful, flexible, tight, and beautiful complexion by removing damaged outer layers of skin and promoting collagen growth.
Non-invasive fractional RF resurfacing treatments remove dead skin cells and improve skin complexion.
The effect is both immediate and long-term.
New Technology for Home Use
The EDGE’s, Non-Invasive Fractional RF delivers two unique energy pulses; the first is a superficial Matrix directed to the skin’s epidermis layer, for optimal resurfacing and smoothening effects. The second pulse, is Volumetric, driving deeper into the skin’s layers for skin tightening and accelerating the renewal rate of collagen and ECM.
Combined, the dual pulses improve skin’s health and appearance and produce a youthful and radiant glow skin.
ENVIG EDGE – Mechanism, Target, and Potential Clinical Benefits
ENVIG Edge is the latest breakthrough in anti-aging technology that resurfaces, renews, and rejuvenates the skin using the sheer power of Fractional RF Energy.
ENVIG EDGE delivers fractional RF energy via high-energy microbeams (Energy 49 Microbeams) in a targeted grid pattern via patented dual-energy pulse technology.
The ENVIG EDGE device allows a focused RF energy emission through a flat electrode. Each pulse is comprised of two sub-pulses:
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a new home use device (“EDGE”) on healthy adult female facial skin based on skin analysis measurements clinical evaluation and
Six healthy female subjects, aged 38- 62, received facial treatment twice a week for six-eight weeks with the EDGE device (range of 14-20 treatments. The number varied according to individual specific needs)
Facial treatments were performed using a combination of the EDGE low, medium, and high levels. The device head was mainly used on the cheeks and forehead.
The average treatment time was 4-7 minutes, depending on the patient’s pace of treatment.
Results were evaluated using photographs taken with objective evaluations of Visia skin analysis.
Visia skin analysis measures skin texture, wrinkles, pores, and spots and compares before and after treatment results.
EDGE treatment results in significant improvements in skin texture, wrinkles reduction, pores reduction, and spot quantity reduction as seen in the sample photographs below (Figures 3-15).

There were no significant adverse effects detected during the study period.
On a scale of 1 to 5, subjects rated their sensation during facial EDGE treatment (1 signifies extremely uncomfortable and 5 signifies extremely comfortable).
83.3% of patients rated their sensation as comfortable or highly comfortable
The average comfort score was 4.2 out of 5.
EDGE is a safe and effective method of improving facial smoothness, skin texture, and wrinkle reduction based on Fractional RF technology. It is reported that most patients experienced long-term results after using the EDGE facial home-use device. Different intensity levels provide added value for a pleasant facial treatment.
