Morpheus8: When Microneedling and Radiofrequency Come Together | RF Microneedling in Irvine, CA

Our skin, just like any other part of our bodies, changes as we get older. Aspects such as its texture and tightness become more noticeable with time. But, not all is lost! Phenomenal advancements in cosmetic medicine have enabled people to reclaim their natural, young appearance. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a remarkable breakthrough in aesthetic medicine. This treatment combines microneedling, which generates collagen growth, with radiofrequency energy to create a natural-looking skin tightening, toning, and lifting effect. Read on to learn more about this novel and less invasive form of skin treatment, RF microneedling!

What Is Morpheus8 RF Microneedling and How Does It Work?

Morpheus8 combines both radiofrequency and microneedling to transfer the heat energy of radiofrequency waves to the deeper layers of your skin tissue. Microneedling is a technique that involves creating micro-wounds in the skin with a tiny needle. The needle causes a controlled injury and releases radiofrequency into the channels, which results in new healthy capillaries, elastin, and collagen growth. It is also known as collagen induction therapy or skin needling.

 

When combined with radiofrequency, this procedure improves the effects of traditional microneedling. The treatments are tailored to each patient’s skin type, ensuring that the regenerated skin is thicker and smoother. Morpheus8 is a novel device that employs microneedling and radiofrequency to remodel and contour the face and body. It is the first device of its kind to mold fat from beneath the skin to create a more youthful appearance.

 

The procedure can also be combined with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for noticeably enhanced results. Adding PRP to RF microneedling, also known as the “vampire facelift,” is a procedure that creates an anti-aging effect on your skin.  It involves drawing the platelets in your blood, separating them through a machine, and then applying it as a serum to your treated face. This treatment has been shown to significantly enhance your RF microneedling results, reduce wrinkles, minimize deep creases, and diminish acne scars.  Applying PRP to an area during the Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment is ideal. The temporarily open channels of the skin allow the PRP to penetrate deep, providing the necessary healing factors to produce the best results in collagen production and new cell turnover.

 

What Does Morpheus8 Target?

The most commonly treated locations are the face, neck, chest, and knees. This treatment is also effective on other body areas with wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring. Microneedling using RF by Morpheus8 improves:

 

  • Deep wrinkles and lines
  • Acne scarring
  • Damage caused by the sun
  • Laxity of the skin (sagging or jowls)
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

 

When Will I Start Seeing Results?

Microneedling is a treatment that applies controlled injuries to the skin to promote new collagen to form. Due to these micro-injuries, the treatment effects will not show immediately. You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated areas during the skin’s healing process for a few days. You will notice visible contouring and texture improvements in two to four weeks. Still, your collagen production will continue to ramp up for up to six months.
