Skin tightening: promoting collagen production to reverse the signs of aging

As you grow older, your skin loses its youthful firmness because of the gradual loss of elastin and collagen. The loss of elasticity eventually leads to sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases, making you look older and more tired. Most of the signs of aging can be traced back to the gradual loss of collagen, a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together. Our non-surgical skin tightening treatments focus on promoting natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.

Morpheus8 combines the benefits of radiofrequency energy and microneedling

We use the cutting-edge Morpheus8 technology to stimulate natural collagen production and tighten your skin tissues. Morpheus8 combines the unique benefits of radiofrequency energy and microneedling. The cosmetic provider uses the handheld Morpheus8 device to create thousands of micro-punctures on the epidermis while delivering radiofrequency energy, which activates your body’s innate healing processes. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to tighten your skin tissues, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin tone and texture.

Eliminate unwanted cellulite
with Morpheus8 Body

Cellulite appears when excess fat cells push through a layer of collagen fibers underneath the skin. If the connective tissues known as septae underneath the skin are damaged, fat cells bulge out in the form of cellulite ripples and dimples. Morpheus8 uses microneedling and radiofrequency energy to stimulate natural collagen production underneath the skin, which strengthens the damaged connective tissues and dissolves excess fat cells. Over time, the cellulite lumps and bumps disappear from your skin.

Your one-on-one personalized skin tightening consultation

During your one-on-one consultation, the medical provider will carefully examine your skin quality, analyze your skin type and conditions, identify the treatment areas, and determine if you also need cellulite treatment. After a thorough assessment, the cosmetic provider will curate a personalized skin tightening treatment plan for you.

Your skin tightening experience: no incisions, injections, or pain

During your skin tightening treatment, the medical provider will apply a numbing gel on the targeted treatment areas to ensure comfort. After adjusting the Morpheus8 device according to your skin type, the cosmetic provider will use it to create micro-punctures on your epidermis while delivering radiofrequency energy.

Mild redness, swelling, and discomfort

Skin tightening with Morpheus8 may cause mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and discomfort around the treatment sites. The side effects usually dissipate within a day or two. Your skin might also be slightly photosensitive after the treatment, so you should apply sunscreen. There are no major complications or risks.

Resume your daily activities immediately

You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your skin tightening session. But you should wear sunscreen whenever you go outside, avoid direct sunlight if possible, and avoid strenuous workouts for two days. You can resume all activities once the side effects dissipate.

Cumulative results after each session

The Morpheus8 skin tightening results will gradually improve over several weeks and months. Your skin will look tighter and more youthful over several months as your body produces new collagen fibers. Most patients need approximately 3 Morpheus8 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
