Tighten & Revitalize Your Skin with Morpheus8

Our skin loses its elasticity and firmness as we age, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses various techniques to stimulate collagen production, which tightens and firms the skin. The treatment can be used on several areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. At South Coast MedSpa, we use Morpheus8 technology, which combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy to achieve optimal results. The procedure is quick, painless, and requires almost no downtime.

Skin Tightening Corrects:

  • Loose or sagging skin caused by aging or weight loss
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and body
  • Poor skin texture and uneven skin tone
  • Acne scarring and other types of scarring
  • Stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks
  • Cellulite on the thighs or buttocks

The Science Behind Morpheus8 Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 skin tightening combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. The Morpheus8 device delivers radiofrequency energy through tiny needles penetrating the skin’s surface. The heat energy from the radiofrequency promotes collagen and elastin production, which helps to tighten and firm the skin.

Microneedling further enhances the collagen-building process by creating tiny punctures in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. Over time, increased collagen production improves skin texture, elasticity, and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Skin Tightening:

  • Tightens and firms loose or sagging skin
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results

  • Boosts confidence and enhances natural beauty

Your Complete Skin Tightening Experience

To prepare for skin tightening, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for at least two weeks before your appointment. You should also stop using skincare products containing retinol or alpha-hydroxy acids a few days before treatment. Arrive with clean skin and avoid wearing makeup or lotions on the treatment area.

During your skin tightening session, you will consult with one of our experienced professionals to discuss your goals and expectations. The treatment area will be cleaned, and a topical numbing cream may be applied. We can also utilize lidocaine injections and/or Pro-Nox™ (laughing gas) to optimize pain control for your treatment.

Side Effects
After a skin tightening session, you may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, or slight discomfort. These symptoms typically subside within a few hours to a day. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and makeup for 2 days post-treatment, and then you may use sunscreen after that period. Serious side effects are rare; our professionals will provide instructions to minimize potential risks.

There is little to no downtime after a skin tightening treatment, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness, but these symptoms subside within a few hours to a day. When treating the body, there may be mild temporary textural irregularity or pigmentation that could last a few weeks. It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen after treatment to protect your skin.

Results from Morpheus8 skin tightening may appear gradually over several weeks as collagen production increases. The results can last up to two years or more with proper skincare and maintenance. Your skincare professional at South Coast MedSpa can advise you on maintaining your results.

The number of skin tightening treatments needed for optimal results may vary depending on the treatment area and your skin’s condition. Three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are typically recommended. Maintenance treatments may be needed every six to twelve months to sustain the results.
