The US market has seen a rapid growth in new radiofrequency (RF) devices over the past several years, all for the benefit of our patients. This column will summarize the various types of RF devices currently available and review their technologies for a nonsurgical approach to tissue tightening. Further clinical trials are necessary to demonstrate the efficacy as well as safety of RF devices for tissue tightening so that we can treat our patients with devices that truly work and provide the desired results.
