Age can lead to numerous unwanted changes in the facial tissues. The loss of collagen and elastin leads to sagging skin and the formation of unwanted wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. And you may also develop unwanted pockets of excess fat in specific areas, such as the submental region underneath the chin (double chin). Facial contouring refers to non-invasive techniques that tighten sagging skin tissues, reduce unwanted wrinkles, and eliminate stubborn fat pockets.
Facial contouring: reverse the signs of aging and enhance your contours without surgeries or incisions
Facial contouring can do the following:

- Reduce facial creases
- Improve overall skin tone/ texture
- Reduce nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Reduce unwanted jowls
- Restore volume to the cheeks and under-eye regions
- Reduce excess fat cells from the double chin
- Improve jawline
Non-invasive tissue remodeling and skin tightening with Morpheus8 and FormaV
We use two cutting-edge technologies for non-invasive tissue remodeling, depending on your unique needs and goals — Morpheus8 and FormaV. Both technologies facilitate and ensure safe and reliable results, but we select the device most suitable for your particular needs and expectations. We describe how the two devices work below.
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the benefits of radiofrequency energy and microneedling. The Morpheus8 device makes thousands of microchannels on the skin’s surface, stimulating natural collagen production. Meanwhile, the microneedles deliver radiofrequency energy into the deep dermal layers to stimulate skin contracture, which makes your facial skin look tight, firm, and contoured. Over time, your face looks firm, smooth, and contoured, free from wrinkles and excess sagging.
FormaV is a non-invasive tissue remodeling device. The handheld device emits radiofrequency energy deep within the dermal layers, which improves blood circulation, alleviates muscle pain, and promotes muscle relaxation. This treatment also facilitates the dissolution of excess fat cells underneath the skin and promotes collagen production. Over time, your facial skin will look smoother, tighter, and more youthful. FormaV is an extremely versatile treatment, and its results gradually improve over several weeks and months.
Benefits of non-invasive facial contouring:
- Completely non-invasive treatment
- No incisions, needless, or scars
- Improves overall skin tone and texture
- Facilitates collagen production
- Dissolves excess fat pockets in targeted areas
- No harsh side effects or complications
- No post-treatment downtime
Your facial contouring experience: no incisions, needles, scars, or pain
We perform a highly-personalized facial contouring procedure based on your unique goals. During a Morpheus8 treatment, the cosmetic provider will use the handheld Morpheus8 device to make thousands of micro-channels on your skin’s surface in the targeted areas, which will stimulate collagen production. During a FormaV treatment, the wand-like device will be moved over the treatment areas to deliver targeted radiofrequency energy into the deep dermal layers. The entire treatment should conclude within 30 minutes, depending on the treatment areas.
Minimal post-treatment side effects and no downtime
You can expect a painless and comfortable treatment without harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, tenderness, and soreness in the treatment areas, but these side effects dissipate within a few days. You should avoid strenuous physical activities and direct sunlight for a few days, but you can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately after treatment.
Cumulative improvements over multiple sessions
Morpheus8 and FormaV facial contouring treatments produce gradual results over several weeks and months. That’s because our non-invasive treatments facilitate natural collagen production and healing, so the results appear naturally over an extended period. Your facial skin will gradually look tighter, smoother, and more youthful over several weeks. Some patients may need multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart.
