A revolutionary skin-tightening technique is an excellent alternative to invasive surgical procedures. Minimal pain and recovery time, and very limited risk, makes this an ideal treatment for most skin types. A handheld device delivers an electrical arc to problem areas causing superficial damage to the skin's upper dermal layer while transmitting heat to the lower dermal layer. Skin fibers are minimized and collagen is boosted, resulting in tightening of the skin. This treatment successfully reduces fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and uneven coloration, and loose or sagging skin.
