Achieve Firm & Taut Skin Again

Skin tightening is a cosmetic procedure that uses advanced technologies to improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Skin tightening can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. The results are a firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking appearance, with little to no downtime.

The Science Behind Skin Tightening

Morpheus8, the advanced technology used for skin tightening in Newport Beach, combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to achieve optimal results. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen production. RF energy is then applied to the treated area, heating the underlying tissues and promoting collagen production. See more on the differences below:


Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This process leads to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which are essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. Microneedling can also improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the overall appearance of the skin.

Radiofrequency Energy

Radiofrequency energy boosts the results of microneedling by penetrating deeper into the skin, heating the underlying tissues, and promoting additional collagen production. The heat also causes the existing collagen fibers to contract, leading to an immediate tightening effect. The combination of microneedling and RF energy creates a powerful synergistic effect, significantly improving skin firmness, texture, and tone. This drastically increases the effectiveness of our treatments for skin tightening in Newport Beach.

Your Complete Skin Tightening Experience

To prepare for skin tightening, you should avoid sun exposure, stop using certain skincare products, and disclose any medications you are taking or medical conditions you have. Your provider may also recommend pre-treatment skin preparation. Following these guidelines will help minimize the risk of complications and optimize the outcome of your treatment.

During the skin tightening session, you will receive a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The provider will use the Morpheus8 device to deliver RF energy to the skin through microneedles. The treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the area treated. You may experience mild discomfort, but most patients find the treatment tolerable.

Side Effects
After skin tightening in Newport Beach, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. These side effects typically resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more severe side effects such as blistering or scarring may occur. Your provider will discuss these risks with you before treatment and provide guidance on minimizing their occurrence.

The downtime and recovery process after skin tightening depends on the specific treatment and individual patient. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment, but it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous exercise for a few days.

The results from skin tightening vary depending on the treatment and individual patient. You may see initial results within a few days to weeks after treatment, with continued improvement over time. The results can last several months to years, depending on individual factors.

The number of treatments required for optimal results varies depending on the treatment and individual patient. Most patients require 1-3 sessions, with additional treatments as needed for maintenance. Follow-up treatments are done every 6-12 months to maintain the results of skin tightening in Newport Beach.
