Although diet and exercise can help diminish fat and firm skin throughout certain parts of your body, some areas are more stubborn. Loose skin is especially resistant to much change since the elasticity can be affected by weight loss and age, and many people often find it difficult to precisely target certain areas of the skin with exercise alone. To help reduce areas of loose skin and add firmness that is often lost with age, Dr. Allyson Berkey can help you tighten regions of your body with the highly advanced Forma and Morpheus8™. Depending on your goals and the starting condition of your skin, Dr. Berkey will craft a treatment plan that is customized to meet your needs using the technology most capable of helping you achieve your goals. If you want to learn more about radiofrequency skin tightening, contact Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center in Newport Beach, CA and schedule your private consultation.


To carry out your treatment, Dr. Berkey will first need to determine which technology is ideal for you. While the Forma uses radiofrequency energy to contract the deep layers of the skin and stimulate new collagen, the Morpheus8 is a sub-dermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that uses microneedling technology to target the underlying layers of the dermis. Both of these devices succeed in producing younger-looking skin that is smooth and soft to the touch. The handpiece of the device will be maneuvered over your skin several times to ensure full coverage. One of the many benefits of RF skin tightening is that there is no required downtime needed afterward. In most cases, patients will see their best results after 6 – 8 in-office treatments.



How many treatments will I need to achieve the look I want?

Your ideal number of treatments will depend on the original laxity of your skin, along with your goals. During your initial exam, Dr. Berkey will learn more about your concerns and goals so that she can decide how many sessions would be the most beneficial. Most patients will see the best results with between 6 – 8 treatment sessions.

Can I have RF skin tightening with other treatments?

You can. RF skin tightening can be performed as a standalone treatment or to complement additional procedures. Many patients commonly opt to undergo RF skin tightening alongside other nonsurgical procedures.

Does RF skin tightening hurt?

At Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics, we do everything we can to ensure you are at ease for the duration of your procedure. While many patients find that this nonsurgical treatment isn’t uncomfortable, our team can give you a local numbing ointment to reduce any discomfort so you can have a positive experience.

How long does RF skin tightening last?

Because RF skin tightening stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, most patients will see their results continue to improve over the next few months after their last treatment. For most, the results are long-lasting, between six months to a year. Because the aging process is constant, having regular maintenance procedures can help improve and protect your results.


Skin tightening with radiofrequency technology can help patients achieve firmer, younger-looking skin throughout their face and body. Dr. Allyson Berkey at Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics specializes in nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments that produce stunning results without the need for surgery. To learn more about RF skin tightening and the outcomes you could enjoy, get in touch with our office in Newport Beach, CA and schedule a consultation with a member of our team.
