Comments:

These devices only work by targeting collagen.  Many are not approved to work on any other body areas besides the face.  Treatment is best for 30-40 year old skin.  Older skin may get a nice visual enhancement but will unlikely get the desired lift.

Downtime Required:

Ice packs for the remainder of the day after treatment.  Redness and or swelling will probably require you to be away from the public.
