For Tightening the Skin, Which Works Better: Affirm or Thermage?

Doctor Answers 1

Thermage for tightening

Thermage or Pelleve which are both radiofrequency devices are designed to heat and tighten the skin.  This creates an overall tightening or lifting effect.  The affirm is a fractionated laser that is primarily designed to treat early wrinkles, pigmentation and create an overall rejuvenation.  Although it can also help smooth and firm the skin, the results are typically not as obvious as the Pelleve or Thermage
