Tighten loose skin with bi-polar frequencies. Similar to the RF facial tightening treatment, radiofrequency is the technology administered into the areas of concern but where the RF body tightening treatment differs is the type of probe that is used.
This treatment can be performed by the:

Radio Frequency Body Tightening uses heat to strengthen and repair collagen within the skin, encouraging a tightening effect. Glycerin is applied to the skin, and the applicator is moved in a circular motion across the area. Throughout the treatment, you must ensure that you measure the temperature of the area with an infra-red thermometer to prevent the skin from getting too hot.
When performing this treatment we aim to increase the temperature to approximately 45 degrees Celsius in comparison to Radio Frequency Facial Tightening, which uses a slightly lower temperature. The larger probe is able to deliver larger radio waves to cover much bigger areas such as the stomach, chest, back, arms and legs.
"This review allowed to observe that RF acts mainly with the purpose of promoting changes in tissue conformation, inducing neocollagenesis by thermal generation in deep layers of the skin tissue, thus being theoretically suitable for the treatment of wrinkles and skin laxity."
"The most relevant changes were found in the papillary dermis which underwent an expansion due to oedema and vascular congestion (first half of the experiment), followed by an increase in cellularity and the accumulation of intercellular substance. An increase in collagen, elastic fibres and mucopolysaccharides was observed."
