Tighten & Firm Your Skin

Our skin’s elasticity decreases as we age, resulting in sagging and wrinkles. Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced technology to firm and lift the skin. It stimulates collagen production, maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Skin tightening can be done on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs. The treatment can help you achieve a youthful, refreshed appearance without surgery and almost no downtime.

Skin Tightening Corrects:

  • Sagging skin on the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity due to aging
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Stretch marks and cellulite (in some cases)
  • Lack of facial contour and definition

The Science Behind Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary technology that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose, sagging skin. Microneedling creates tiny microchannels in the skin, which stimulate the body’s natural healing process and trigger the production of collagen and elastin. RF energy is then delivered to the deeper layers of the skin through the microchannels, heating the tissue and further stimulating collagen production.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for skin tightening in Los Angeles that involves creating tiny microchannels in the skin using a device with small needles. The micro-injuries caused by the needles stimulate the body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure, strength, and elasticity to the skin, while elastin allows the skin to stretch and bounce back into shape. Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by improving its texture, tone, and overall appearance.

Radiofrequency Energy

Radiofrequency energy is used in skin tightening to heat the deeper layers of the skin. The heat produced by RF energy causes the collagen fibers in the skin to contract, which tightens and firms the skin. It also triggers the production of new collagen and elastin, further improving the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Combining microneedling with RF using Morpheus8 enhances the results of both treatments, helping you defy aging.

Your Complete Skin Tightening Experience

Before skin tightening, it’s important to follow a few simple steps to ensure optimal results. Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before your appointment, and discontinue using retinoids or exfoliants. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to help your skin prepare for the treatment.

You will be made comfortable during your skin tightening session, and the treatment area will be prepped. Your provider will then use the Morpheus8 device on the target areas. You may feel some mild discomfort, but the treatment is generally well-tolerated. The session typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

Side Effects
After skin tightening, you may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. These effects are generally temporary and should subside within a few days. In rare cases, some patients may experience minor bruising or blistering. Your provider will discuss any potential side effects with you before RF skin tightening in Los Angeles.

After your skin tightening treatment, there is almost no downtime. You may return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure. However, avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks after treatment is important.

Results from skin tightening may begin to appear immediately following the session, but full results typically develop over several weeks to months as collagen production increases. With proper maintenance, the results can last for several months to years.

The number of treatments required for optimal results varies depending on the individual and the treatment area. Most patients see significant improvement after 1-3 sessions, with additional treatments as needed for maintenance. Follow-up treatments are typically done every 6-12 months to maintain results.
