What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8™?
As we age, the amount of collagen and elastin in our skin diminishes. This is important because collagen and elastin are responsible for the health, strength, and elasticity of our skin. However, Morpheus8™ treatments work by combining the rejuvenating effects of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening. This treatment can be performed effectively on the face, neck, knees, abdomen, and arms.

How Does Morpheus8™ Work to Tighten and Rejuvenate the Skin?
Morpheus8™ combines microneedling and RF technology. These treatment types work to stimulate natural healing in your body and increase the production of collagen and elastin in your skin.
For your procedure, a topical numbing cream will be placed on the treatment area(s). Next, the Morpheus8™ device will be moved slowly over your skin.
Microneedles in the device will cause micro-injuries to the outer layer of your skin to promote natural healing and the growth of new, healthy skin. At the same time as the microneedling treatment, pulses of radiofrequency energy penetrate to the dermis (the deep layers of your skin) to promote collagen production.
In many ways, you can think of your Morpheus8™ treatment as a way of jumpstarting your body into healing and correcting itself. As the micro-injuries heal, new and healthy skin and tissue grows to give you transformative results that you will feel confident and proud of having.
Am I a Candidate for Morpheus8™?
If you are in good general health but struggle with lifestyle- or age-related skin issues (either on your face or in other areas of your body), then Morpheus8™ may be the right treatment option for you.
As with any plastic surgery or cosmetic treatment procedure, one of the most important aspects of your Morpheus8™ treatment is your consultation.

What Is Recovery Like After Morpheus8™?
Besides the transformative results achieved by Morpheus8™, one of the best aspects of this treatment is that there is little to no downtime required. Most patients are able to return to their normal, daily activities (including work) that same day or the day following their treatment.
You will likely experience some slight bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment area as well as some general soreness, but these side effects should dissipate within a day or two.
Many patients report the treatment area feeling warm, like the skin is sunburned, for a week. To alleviate any recovery symptoms, you can use ice packs and over-the-counter medication.
Additionally, it is important that you apply moisturizer to the skin, starting the day after your treatment, and make sure that you use sunscreen of at least SPF 30 when going out in the sun.Schedule a Consultation
