Morpheus8 RF Micro-needling
Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment that addresses superficial concerns on multiple dermal levels. The radiofrequency portion of this treatment uses gentle heat to stimulate the production of collagen in deep dermal layers to restore the structure and firmness of the skin. The microneedling portion of this treatment stimulates the body’s regenerative response and encourages more rapid cellular turnover, reducing wrinkles and improving tone and texture of the skin. Numbing creams are used for maximal comfort during these microneedling treatments.
The combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling enables this unique treatment system to address a variety of skin concerns. Some of these concerns include skin laxity, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, scarring, stretch marks, and much more.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Comfortable is This Treatment?
This treatment typically lasts between 30 minutes and one hour. Due to its customizable heat setting feature, this treatment is highly pleasant as it can be adjusted according to your skin’s comfort level. Moreover, a numbing cream applied topically ensures optimal ease during the procedure.
What Can You Expect from Treatment?
When you arrive to your appointment, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment areas for 40-60 minutes. During the procedure, your provider will utilize a portable technology to employ radiofrequency and begin the microneedling to target your treatment areas. This treatment can simultaneously treat several facial and bodily areas.
What Should You Do Before Treatment?
Prior to your treatment, it is advisable to refrain from using any skin care products that might cause irritation. These may include retinoids, vitamin A derivatives or chemical exfoliants like glycolic acid and salicylic acid.
Photosensitivity can be a side effect of radiofrequency, hence it’s advisable to restrict sun exposure for at least one week before your treatment as well. This implies refraining from outdoor activities, tanning under the sun or using self-tanning agents as well as steering clear of certain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide that cause photosensitivity.
What Should You Do After Treatment?
The majority of individuals can resume their regular routines either on the same day or within a day following their session, subject to the body parts receiving therapy. Refrain from applying any cosmetic products on treated areas for at least 24 hours and comply with all post-procedural instructions to ensure that your outcomes materialize as planned.
Aftercare instructions may advise refraining from exposing oneself to the sun or engaging in activities that can stimulate melanin production, such as tanning. Additionally, it is recommended to steer clear of skin irritants like specific skincare items, hot water and steam, intense perspiration and heavy physical excerise. These aftercare directives usually apply for a period ranging from three to five days before resuming regular activities.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
To fully address treatment concerns, multiple sessions of Morpheus8 are typically necessary. Generally, minor issues require one to three appointments while moderate-to-severe concerns may need three to five treatments. Despite its potency, treating various body or facial areas could necessitate additional treatments. It is advisable to work with your skincare experts on a maintenance plan following your completed Morpheus8 package, which could be 1-2 sessions annually.
How Soon Will You See the Results?
The outcome of this treatment becomes noticeable within four to six weeks after the initial visit, as collagen is generated in the subcutaneous layers. Adhering strictly to post-treatment guidelines could expedite the results, but those dealing with superficial pigmentation problems may see improvements sooner than individuals treating profound wrinkles or scars.
How Long Will Results Last?
The impact of radiofrequency micro-needling can last for 12 to 18 months consecutively. To maintain your results, you may need to receive additional treatments every 6 months to 1 year. The sustainability of your results relies on how long collagen is generated and sustained in your body, along with proficiently shielding against sun damage that could hasten aging skin.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Due to its customizable nature, the majority of individuals are suitable candidates for this treatment as it caters specifically to their skin requirements. Radiofrequency is a non-invasive technique that won’t result in any scarring, and micro-needling works harmoniously with your body’s innate resources to tighten up loose skin and enhance the overall texture. Your eligibility will be determined during an initial consultation with Dr. Shih.
