The heat breaks down collagen to stimulate new growth - which eventually leaves the skin on the surface looking smoother and tighter.
"The treatment takes about 45 minutes to treat your whole face and your eyes," according to Medical spa owner Dina El-Sherif.
"The difference significantly is the fact that I can now see my eyelids which had totally receded," said Judy Deardorff, who tried the treatment.
And while some results are immediate, the collagen continues to rebuild after the treatment ends. However, the results don't last forever. Eventually patients may want to have a tune up in a year or two.
