It's no secret that as we age, our skin starts to sag and wrinkle. We can't stop the aging process, but we can do something about loose skin. Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center offers radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening to heat the dermis and stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter skin that's smoother and virtually wrinkle-free. Now, you can look and feel like a much younger person with Morpheus8 in Newport Beach, CA.
So, how long do results from RF skin tightening last? Results from Morpheus8 can last anywhere from 2 – 4 years, but this timeline depends on factors like your age, current skin elasticity, and how well you stick with a healthy skin care routine. Get a more specific outlook for your Morpheus8 treatment by meeting with Dr. Allyson Berkey. We can perform an assessment and help you get started.
Why do I have loose skin?
Wrinkles are unavoidable as we get older. The collagen and elastin fibers that give our skin elasticity break down from general aging, sun exposure, loss of fat, genetics, and weight loss. When collagen disappears, there’s no way to replace it with topical solutions or plastic surgery. However, you can encourage new collagen and elastin production naturally, which is exactly what Morpheus8 does. RF skin tightening triggers your body's natural healing response and tightens loose skin over time.
What should I expect during treatment?
Anti-aging radiofrequency treatment can help you achieve youthful results without doing any damage to your skin or the surrounding tissues. Morpheus8 is an in-office procedure in Newport Beach, CA, and doesn’t require anesthesia or an extended amount of time in recovery. The treatment itself should only take about an hour, and it's mostly painless. During your procedure, tiny needles create micro-injuries on the targeted areas. Once the needles penetrate the skin, our technicians emit radiofrequency waves that result in skin tightening.
How many treatments do I need?
After Morpheus8, you can almost immediately go back to your daily life and activities. Because no incisions were involved, you don’t need to worry about bandages or stitches. However, you will need to return to make sure your desired results are achieved. Usually, our patients at Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center come back for a total of 6 – 8 Morpheus8 treatments. Our professionals can give you more specific details and a more comprehensive timeline during your initial consultation.
What results can I expect from RF skin tightening?
Patients are pleasantly surprised by the anti-aging effects of Morpheus8. After just one treatment, some patients already notice a difference in their skin’s tone and texture. Radiofrequency treatment can last up to two years, and annual follow-up sessions may be required to maintain these outcomes. As we mentioned, it’s very important to take care of your skin in between appointments, including protecting yourself from harmful UV rays and moisturizing every day.
