What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening of the face is the latest development in wrinkle reduction and skin tightening technology. It is an innovative, micro-invasive treatment utilizing state-of-the-art advances in radio frequency energy to treat the skin directly. The radio frequency probe safely heats the treated skin to an optimal temperature for skin tightening with precision and safety unavailable from any other skin-tightening devices. For patients with moderate skin laxity it is an excellent alternative to traditional Face Lift, Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift and Thigh Lift.

This makes them perfect compliments to Radio Frequency in achieving a total effect.
