When new elastin and collagen are produced, it helps your skin become firmer, thicker and more youthful-looking. But is radiofrequency actually safe? The answer is yes!
An advantage of using RF to heat tissues, as opposed to lasers (which use higher-frequency light waves), is that the lower frequency of RF can safely penetrate to a deeper level, helping to improve skin tone and structure, even lifting tissues.

Its goals are very similar to radiofrequency, in that it aims to boost collagen production. But how exactly does it work? Well, ultrasound can penetrate at different depths based on how you focus the energy.
This allows ultrasound skin tightening to essentially skip the superficial layer of the skin, and focus on healing the deeper layers.
