Just as there are hot and cool spots in microwave cooking, RF energy can have its affects on tissues which vary from person to person.
Treatments which are pulsed lighted can work in 2 ways: Converting light to heat in your tissue (similar to the sun warming your skin) and also by stimulating and helping repair the cells in your skin.
Compared to other skin tightening treatment, the major difference between them is that the outer layer of the skin known as the epidermis, which is not damaged in anyway, but the radio frequency energy or light energy, which heats the deeper layers of the skin during treatment. The body’s natural wound healing response, that causes certain changes, in the skin (collagen) resultant in the skin tightening. A series of these treatments which are usually performed.
