Dr. Leslie Baumann: These are the same waves that go into your car radio and play music. The waves run through saline and cause the saline to vibrate and that's what makes the cell vibrate. Jennifer Matthews: Compared to other procedures, Dr. Baumann says it's a lot safer, costs less and requires less down time. Dr. Leslie Baumann: It's safer than laser because you don't have heat. It's safer than dermabrasion because you don't go as deeply in the skin. However, the results are not quite as good as those procedures because you don't go as deep. Jennifer Matthews: But she says the results improve with time. Mindy Wolfson: This was easy. I could get back to my life within a matter of few days.
