RF Skin Tightening in Chicago
Tighten Skin Without Surgery
As the years go on, your body produces less and less collagen and elastin—two vital proteins responsible for the structure of your skin.
With less collagen and elastin, your skin is more susceptible to sagging, laxity, and wrinkle formation. The best way to rebuild this structure and firm skin non-surgically is to build up collagen and elastin from within! At CaTara Medical Spa, we provide RF skin tightening in Chicago to do just that.
RF stands for radio frequency, a type of energy that heats the skin. This process kickstarts the natural healing process so your skin produces more collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter, more youthful skin!
