Morpheus8 Skin Tightening Benefits
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical advanced needling treatment that incorporates radio frequency. When we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity, with wrinkles, lines, and sagging appearing. Using radiofrequency, a Morpheus8 treatment stimulates collagen production to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body.
The following benefits can be achieved through Morpheus8:
- Increase collagen production. Morpheus8 introduces a new way to build collagen in the face.
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Morpheus8 can be used to improve aging around the eyes, mouth and forehead.
- Lift and tighten loose skin.
- Minimize acne scarring.
- Fade stretch marks.
- Improves complexion
- Contours face and defines jaw line
At Urban Beauty Bar, during your consultation with us, our skincare therapists will guide you towards a recommended treatment plan created specifically for your concerns. You will be provided with a variety of skin tightening treatments to choose from. Now, you may be familiar with InMode’s previous skin tightening Fractora treatment so you may be thinking – what’s the difference?
InMode recently launched their newest and more innovative skin tightening treatment referred to as Morpheus8. Comparatively to Fractora, Morpheus8 has the capability to reach a greater depth when penetrating into the skin and has the ability to provide fat reduction benefits as well. While both treatments use radio frequency energy combined with microneedling and while they might seem similar – they are actually quite different. Fractora works to improve skin texture, while Morpheus8 works to tighten skin. Morpheus8 has the ability to tighten the skin because the needles used are able to penetrate twice as deep into the skin and tighten the bonds between our connective tissues. Considering the power of Morpheus8, clients that are familiar with Fractora will be able to see better, quicker and lasting results with Morpheus8.
Does Morpheus8 Require Multiple Treatments?
For clients interested in our Morpheus8 treatment, Morpheus8 is recommended to be completed in a series of 3 treatments. Similarly to other treatments, a series of three treatments is recommended so our skincare therapists can continue to work on the targeted areas during each and every session. While committing to one treatment may be easier, it may not be able to maximize the potential results that can be achieved after completing three treatments. Over the course of three sessions, our skincare therapists are able to re-texturize the skin, tighten the area while also breaking down and diminishing existing fat even further than the previous session. Having the ability to continuously breakdown and diminish problem areas, it allows the clients to see a phenomenal improvement by the end of the treatment series. Once a series of three has been completed, the client may be placed on a maintenance regime to upkeep the beautiful results.
Where Can I Receive Morpheus8 Skin Tightening?
The beauty of Morpheus8 is that it can be performed on most areas of the body as well as the face.
With a series of only 3 treatments, you can see improvement to many areas of the face and body. It treats concerns such as crepey skin of the eyelid and neck, improves acne scarring, lifts and tightens facial tissues and can destroy adipose (fat) cells in problematic areas such as the jowls and double chin. Finally it improves the overall tone and texture of the skin giving a fresh and even glow. Even better news, it’s safe on darker skin types and all year around.
A Minimally Invasive Treatment
Morpheus8 is FDA-approved and safe. Like a facelift, it can reduce the appearance of skin sagging around your neck, chin, and jowls. Wrinkles and lines minimize without having to endure incisions, blood loss, and anesthesia.
The downtime after a Morpheus8 treatment is minimal, with the recommendation that clients allow for 24 to 48 hours for healing after each treatment. It is normal, however, for clients to see the micro-lesions for a few days after the treatment and for a slight redness to stick around for up to one week. During the healing process, it is crucial to follow post-procedural instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. At Urban Beauty Bar, we pride ourselves on ensuring each client is equipped with post-procedural products as well as instructions to experience an easy recovery period.

Forma Skin Tightening
What is Forma?
Skin tightening is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a skincare procedure targeted to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of sagging skin; in turn, it also works to diminish the appearance of apparent wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is a client favourite at Urban Beauty Bar for the reason that it serves as a quick fix before a birthday, a wedding or even a night out with friends and family.
Forma is a relaxing and non-invasive treatment requiring no downtime. It uses heat and radiofrequency to stimulate the production of collagen and tightens facial contours and smoothen static and expression lines. The use of radio frequency and heat allows the technician to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while re-shaping the contours of your face to compliment your facial structure.
This treatment is an anti-aging treatment that can leave your skin feeling tighter, glowing and much more youthful. The best part of this treatment is that it mimics a warm facial massage. Not only does it bring you the quick results you’re looking for but it’s also one of our most relaxing treatments at Urban Beauty Bar.
Here at Urban Beauty Bar, we specialize in heat-induced skin tightening. More specifically, we are proud to bring to you the pain free and result driven Forma skin tightening treatment to you.
The Forma treatment is preferable over other skin tightening treatments because it is non-invasive and requires no downtime. It uses heat and radiofrequency to stimulate the production of more collagen in the body, resulting in brighter, plumper, and more youthful skin.
How Does Forma Work?
Forma makes use of radiofrequency and heat to stimulate the production of collagen. Heat and radiofrequency provide deep and uniform skin stimulation. During your skin tightening session, a wand-like device will be moved across the skin, allowing for heat to penetrate deeper into the skin and almost providing an effect comparable to ironing out a wrinkled sheet.
In addition, the Forma wand device precisely adjusts to the contours of your face, providing uniform care to the entire treatment area. In other words, you won’t end up with spots that are not wrinkle-free; we ensure that even the harder-to-reach areas like our crow’s feet are reached and treated equally. The innovative development of the Forma applicator has the ability to target it all.
Due to the deep radiofrequency energy exuded by the Forma wand, your body’s natural mechanisms should become more effective at keeping the skin plump.
In a nutshell, Forma provides a uniform, auto-adjusting, non-invasive treatment that will visibly tighten your skin.
Is Forma Safe?
Understandably, the idea of applying laser technology to your delicate facial tissue can sound a little scary. We’re here to assure you that you have nothing to fear when you book your skin tightening treatment at Urban Beauty Bar.
With our non-invasive Forma handpiece, the procedure is rather simple and shouldn’t cause any pain. While the wand applicator does get hot, most of our clients compare the feeling to receiving a relaxing hot stone massage on their face.
If the heat becomes too uncomfortable for you, we can always apply a numbing gel, but this scenario is unlikely. Keep in mind that the precise technology of Forma lowers heat levels for more sensitive areas, like the skin around the eyes.
Because our skin tightening treatment is so non-invasive and requires no downtime, almost anyone can try out our Forma treatment. Young people can come in to receive the treatment as a preventive measure against the onset of wrinkles. Patients can also utilize Forma to target and diminish already-developed wrinkles and sagging skin.
Forma is safe for all skin types. However, as with most skin care procedures, if you have sensitive skin, like if you’re prone to eczema or have active acne, it is best to wait until your skin is clear and soothed before getting Forma skin tightening. While the procedure is non-invasive, the wand does heat up, which could cause further irritation for those with sensitive skin.
In terms of skin care products prior to your appointment, please refrain from using topical treatments and products 3-5 days prior to your scheduled appointment. While you can certainly cleanse and moisturize your skin as usual, refrain from using strong active ingredients.
If you’ve been searching for Forma skin tightening near you, we can help you determine if this skin tightening procedure is right for you.
Does Forma require Multiple Treatments?
With Forma, the skin tightening effect will immediately be observed after your first session. However, in order to maintain the best results and keep your skin looking its youngest, we recommend regular skin tightening treatments. However, in order to see maximum results, it’s best done in a series of 6-8 treatments. Most clients will stick to a schedule of booking in a forma treatment either weekly, biweekly or monthly depending on which skin goals they wish to achieve. For clients that do a series of forma treatments 1-2 weeks apart, they will be able to reap the most benefits from these treatments as we are continuously penetrating heat and tightening the skin on a continual basis.
After a client undergoes a recommended series of 6-8 forma treatments, clients can also book yearly maintenance appointments as the results of Forma skin tightening can last up to four years.
While you can save money with gua sha and at-home skin tightening treatments, they won’t produce any visible results. Instead, invest in your skin and invest in professional skin tightening services that will be worth the investment if you’re looking to see noticeable results.
Where Can I Receive Forma?
While skin tightening tends to be associated with the face, you can receive Forma tightening anywhere on your body. We can also target specific areas of concern. If you want to focus on tightening jowls, smile lines, neck skin, or the forehead, our precise handpiece can tackle any areas of concern for you to help you feel more comfortable in the skin you’re in.
Your skin should look visibly more toned after the minimal redness and minimal irritation settles down from your session. However, in order to maintain your results and really get the full benefits of our Forma treatment, we do recommend regular appointments just like any other facial or any other skincare service.
What are the benefits of Forma?
With Forma skin tightening, your skin will instantly look tighter once the post-procedure redness subsides. Our clients love booking in a forma treatment before a big event as well as enjoy coming in on a weekly basis to be able to continuously enjoy the benefits of the forma treatment.
The following benefits can be achieved through Forma:
- Targets areas of concerns, such as jowls, smile lines, neck skin, or the forehead
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Lifting and contouring of the skin
- Skin tightening
- Promotes the production of collagen and elastin
You may be familiar with do-it-yourself skin tightening devices. These home devices will barely penetrate into the skin, and likely will not produce any visible results. To truly see a visible increase in collagen, a professional level medical grade device such as the use of a Forma handpiece, must be used to achieve longer lasting results.
