Variations in Frequency Treat the Neck

Matt Taranto, managing member of AesthetiCare Medspa and owner of Mint Aesthetics medical spa consulting, suggests that medical spa professionals train frequently on all of the spa’s devices and equipment, as in most cases, lasers and radiofrequency devices that treat the face, hands, and chest can also treat the neck. “It’s just a matter of learning how to use them on the neck,” he says. The face heals quickly because of the hair follicles, while the neck skin is more delicate and will take longer to heal. So, the energy settings on the devices must usually be adjusted to treat the neck versus the face. Because new equipment is an investment, Taranto’s advice, before purchasing, is to think about the clientele, but also think about what will give you the most return on value.
