The Active FX is mostly used for the face/neck/chest. Ultherapy is a great option for tightening the legs/arms and abdomen and doesn’t usually have any down time.
Can Active FX Help Tighten Skin on Legs, arms and Abdomen?

Active FX and Skin Tightening
Thank you for your question.
Active FX reduces fine lines, and wrinkles, improves sun damaged skin and texture, and stimulates collagen production. There are other technology such as Refirme, that helps with skin tightening and recommended about 3-6 treatments every 4 weeks. Generally the face is the best treatment for this. Velashape and Thermage can help with some skin tightening on the abdomen. I would recommend being treated under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for safest and best treatment options. I hope this helps.

I do not feel resurfacing lasers provide us with a consistent and reliable way to tighten the skin. Using these devices "off face" caries with it a significant increase in risk associated with the procedure.

For significant skin tightening, DeepFX will be the better treatment modality. Depending on the amount of laxity that needs to be corrected, more than one treatment session may be needed.
