What are the different types of skin-tightening technology?

Your aesthetics specialist creates a personalized skin-tightening treatment that best suits your unique needs. It might include:


Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling is a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. It penetrates deep into skin and fat, morphing facial or body aging into a desirable smooth, sleek appearance. Morpheus8 is effective for all skin tones.

Forma and Forma Plus

Forma and Forma Plus use powerful radiofrequency energy for skin tightening, contouring, and new collagen formation, without pain or downtime. The difference between the two is Forma Plus uses a larger head for larger areas of your body.

What should I expect during skin tightening?

The providers at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics complete nonsurgical skin tightening right in the office. They apply a radiofrequency device to affected areas of your skin. Radiofrequency energy penetrates and heats up skin tissue to stimulate collagen production.

You might feel slight warming and cooling sensations during the procedure, but it’s well-tolerated by patients. Nonsurgical skin-tightening procedures usually take up to an hour.

What happens after the procedure?

After nonsurgical skin tightening, you can resume normal everyday activities. You might experience temporary swelling, redness, or soreness. 

Your doctor may recommend a series of treatments to optimize skin-tightening results, which last up to a year.
