What is Skin Tightening with Radiofrequency


Radiofrequency (RF), a form of electromagnetic energy, is used in medical aesthetic procedures to transmit energy to the deep dermal and hypo-dermal areas of the skin, areas where other medical laser and light devices can not penetrate.

This immediate effect is then followed by the production of new collagen, which re-models and tightens naturally over time, producing an underlying natural firming, tightening and lifting of the skin.
