Radiofrequency (Thermalift, Thermage, and Elixis) is an in-office method of skin tightening where a device applies radio waves to the loose skin to make it tight. Intense pulsed light (Velashape) is also an in-office method of skin tightening where a device shrinks the fat cells. Ultrasound therapy is a method that can be used at home where ultrasound waves go inside of the skin, and restore collagen production.
