Actual Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Clinical Study to Evaluate the Performance of Evoke Radiofrequency Device for Improvement of Skin Appearance
Actual Study Start Date : June 19, 2019
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 30, 2021
Actual Study Completion Date : December 30, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment Arm
Enrolled subjects will undergo up to 3 successive bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) treatments (Tx.1, Tx.2 and Tx.3).
Device: Evoke Device
Subjects will undergo treatment with Evoke Device

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with Change in Skin Appearance [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 month, 6 months ]
    Picture evaluation by blinded investigators.

  2. Evaluate rate of Change in Skin Appearance using 3D Photographic analysis [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 month, 6 months ]
    3D Photographic analysis will be conducted using QuantifiCare System

  3. Evaluate changes in skin using VivoSight Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) software [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 month, 6 months ]
    Non-invasive in vivo skin imaging will be taken with the VivoSight Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).

  4. Evaluate changes in skin appearance comparing photographs using Mechanical Turk (MTurk). The pictures will be sent through the system and evaluated by crowd workers. [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 month, 6 months ]
    The pictures will be sent through the system and evaluated by crowd workers.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate Investigator assessment of the skin appearance improvement [ Time Frame: 1 Month, 3 Months, 6 Months ]

    Investigator assessment of the skin appearance improvement comparing pre and post treatment using 0 - 4 -points Likert scale at 1 month, 3 months and 6 months follow up visits:

    • 4 = Significantly marked improvement; 3 = Marked improvement; 2 = Moderate improvement; 1 = Slight improvement; 0 = No difference

  2. Evaluate Subject assessment of improvement and satisfaction [ Time Frame: 1 Month, 3 Months, 6 Months ]

    Improvement assessment will be performed independently by the subject himself 4 points Likert scale questionnaire (Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale), as follows:

    • 4 = Significantly marked improvement; 3 = Marked improvement; 2 = Moderate improvement; 1 = Slight improvement; 0 = No difference.

    Subject assessment of satisfaction will be filled out by subjects using a 5-points Likert scale, as follows:

    • +2 = Very satisfied; +1 = Satisfied; 0 = Indifferent; -1 = Disappointed; -2 = Very disappointed.

  3. Evaluate histological changes to treatment area skin [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    Positive changes in histologic evaluation: up to 5 subjects will undergo biopsies of the treated area for histology at baseline and at 3M follow-up visit. Histological sections will be stained using elastin, H&E and other collagen specific stains.
