Do Skin Tighteners Actually Tighten?

There’s been a lot in the news lately about skin tighteners, and their amazing ability to tighten aging skin. Supposedly, they do this by not only tightening, but getting rid of pockets of fat in some places. But how do they tighten, or do they actually tighten anything besides your cash flow?

This non-invasive treatment works via radio frequency (RF) or ultrasound energy/ infrared light, which tightens the skin below the surface. Popular brands include Thermage and Ulthera.

Well, they do work if the work required is not extensive, i.e., the skin is not excessively loose. Skin that needs only minimum treatment achieves much better results with skin tightners.

Ask your dermatologist/plastic surgeon if you are a good candidate.
