Radiofrequency on the face

Using radiofrequency devices on the face can result in many different complications. These devices are being used to melt fat in other areas of the body and under the neck etc and so the user of the device needs to understand this and be very careful when they try to tighten skin in the face with these devices. There are much better devices on the market for this that build collagen rather than melt fat. A board certified dermatologist skilled in the use of fillers and lasers can usually help with loss of fat or other complications after lasers.
