How does Morpheus8 microneedling work?

Microneedling is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses tiny needles to prick the skin. By creating these micro-injuries, our body stimulates new skin cells and collagen. Morpheus8 by Aesthetic Body Solutions takes your microneedling results to the next level. The difference is that Morpheus8 also emits radiofrequency energy, causing a skin tightening effect. The added heat also promotes new collagen and elastin at a much faster rate, giving you even more dramatic results.

Who should get skin tightening treatment?

Anyone experiencing common signs of aging or skin damage is welcome to try Morpheus8 microneedling in Beverly Hills. This includes wrinkles, discoloration, rough skin texture, and acne scars. Microneedling with RF energy is an excellent option if you want to avoid invasive solutions, such as facelift surgery, to appear younger. However, patients with active acne breakouts may need to wait to receive treatment. During an in-house consultation, we can discuss how this procedure works in detail, including Morpheus8 side effects, potential complications, and recovery.

Benefits of Morpheus8 include:

  • Minimally invasive

  • Faster results

  • Shorter treatment time

  • Can be used on most skin types

How many treatments should I get?

Most patients describe Morpheus8 microneedling as comfortable. We begin by numbing the area and positioning the device to your specific treatment area. You should feel a warm sensation from the radiofrequency energy. Each person is different, so some individuals require more microneedling sessions than others. It depends on your skin type and desired results. Generally, you should expect to have 3 – 4 separate sessions spaced about a month apart. Repeat and consistent appointments deliver better results.

Watch out for slight scabbing

Morpheus8 side effects include redness and swelling to the treated area, which should subside within a few days. Additionally, microneedling may create miniature scabs in the first 24 – 72 hours following treatment. It is important to avoid picking at the scabs in order to prevent skin damage and scarring. These scabs should shed once the underlying skin has completely healed. Patients can expect visible results, including enhanced skin tightening, about one month after treatment.
