Skin Tightening

Various machines are used for skin tightening.  “Radiage” is a radiofrequency  (RF) treatment is used to heat to skin and subdermal tissue to 41-42o C, with new collagen being formed as a result over 3-4 weeks. A series on monthly treatments is usual.  The best areas are cheeks, chins and jowls, necks and some abdomens. Treatments are often only for 10-20 minutes and are inexpensive.

After massive weight loss, this may be ineffective and surgical skin resection may be required.
