There are 2 types of treatments, the in-office procedure which is done by a trained specialist or at-home devices which you can use to apply the treatment on yourself. In-office treatments come in either Radiofrequency or IPL. Radio frequency uses radio waves to nudge the areas of your skin that need tightening. These treatments are done with a machine attached to a hand-held device that your chosen specialist will then pass back and forth on the area you’re trying to tighten. Anesthesia is not needed for this treatment and there is also no downtime post-treatment.
A notable difference you can expect from IPL is the pulsing sensation you will feel as your trusted specialist pasess the device back and forth to your chosen area for treatment. An at-home option you can do is ultrasound skin tightening. This treatment utilizes ultrasound waves that go deep into the farther layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production.
