What does RF microneedling treat?

- Boost the firmness of your skin

Prior to starting your procedure, you will have a consultation with Dr. Padma. A personalized facial rejuvenation treatment plan will be created based on your goals and skin type.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a subdermal adipose remodeling device that uses fractional heat to resurface and tighten the skin. It contains microneedles that create tiny puncture wounds to stimulate the body’s healing response and boost collagen production. At the same time, thermal heat penetrates into the deep tissues to boost the skin's tightness.
How does RF microneedling work?
RF microneedling is a noninvasive treatment that involves the use of the specialized Morpheus8 device on the surface of the skin. The procedure usually takes 30 – 60 minutes. Because a topical anesthetic is applied first, you should not experience discomfort as the microneedling handpiece passes over your skin. The needles simultaneously deliver powerful RF heat below the surface of the skin to remodel the area. When RF is done in combination with microneedling, these techniques can smooth and brighten a dull, damaged complexion while simultaneously firming loose skin.
What is Morpheus8 recovery time?
In general, RF microneedling does not involve extensive downtime. After your treatment, you may experience Morpheus8 side effects, such as redness, swelling, and scabs in the treated area. The skin may also feel mildly sore or tender. These effects should begin to diminish over the next few days. As you heal, make sure to moisturize your skin and avoid sun exposure.
How long does Morpheus8 last?
You should begin to see a youthful, brighter complexion emerge over the next 3 – 4 weeks as your body continues to produce collagen. The improvements from RF microneedling are expected to increase over the next three months. To help patients achieve their best outcomes, a series of 2 – 4 treatments is typically recommended.
