The New Way To Tighten and Tone Skin
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
No one likes the look of fat, cellulite or loose skin, and most of us will go to any length to get rid of it, even if our attempts only result in it looking a little better. But, we hear there’s a new treatment on the market that works to tighten and tone skin and get rid of fat all at once—and that has gotten us excited.
may be the fix you’re looking for when it comes to targeting all those stubborn trouble spots—think cellulite, bat wing arms and less-than-tight tummies. While there are already a handful of radio-frequency devices on the market, this one comes with a special handpiece that fits over larger areas, like the stomach and thighs, to purportedly treat them better. It’s said to give more even distribution of heat in the treated areas for shorter treatment times.
While this won’t transform your body overnight, the more you do it, the better your results will be. Because radio-frequency stimulates collagen production, in turn giving a tightening or firming effect to the skin, it can take anywhere from eight weeks to three months, and as many as eight treatments, before you start to see a change.
