What is RF Skin Tightening?
The firm and radiant skin of our youth will inevitably change over time as the amount of the collagen and elastin in our skin cells begin to decrease. As this natural supply of nutrients runs low, skin will decrease in firmness, leading to the common signs of aging. Skin becomes lax and could droop. If you want to improve the firmness and general health of your skin without plastic surgery, ask us about RF skin tightening with Morpheus 8™. Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL utilizes this advanced equipment to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen in the treated areas so you can have taut, radiant skin. During your consultation, Dr. Darrell Lee will be happy to discuss the benefits of RF skin tightening before possibly performing the procedure during the same visit.
Morpheus 8™ is highly effective in the reduction of cellulite. Using intelligent, temperature-controlled technology, Morpheus 8™ works superficially and deep beneath the skin to treat skin laxity and improve the appearance of cellulite. The system offers consistent results and allows the patient the freedom to return to their daily activities without extended recoveries and downtimes.

Who Makes A Good Candidate For Treatment?
RF skin tightening may be an option if you are interested in attaining firmer skin but don't want to undergo plastic surgery. Morpheus 8™ skin tightening treatments may be used on most areas of the face and body, such as the abs, under the chin, décolleté, above the knees, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy weight
- Have early-onset or moderate skin laxity on their face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles or cellulite
- Want to enhance the firmness and appearance of their skin
How RF Skin Tightening Works
To begin your treatment, a member of our team will clean your skin and remove any oils, makeup, or lotions. Once you are ready, the Morpheus 8™ device will be evenly passed or rolled over the treatment area several times for an effective session. The radiofrequency energy stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The treatment may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas being treated. After the session is over, you'll be allowed to leave and return to your daily routine.
After Your Session
After your treatment, the affected areas may be tender, red, or swollen. This is common and will heal on its own in a few days. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss the best ways to care for the treated area at home after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Many patients will not have noticeable results right after their session. Since collagen and elastin stimulation and growth is a gradual process, you should see the full results of the treatment within a few days of your session. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
