MORPHEUS 8 RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) MICRONEEDLING IN ALPHARETTa
Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling is a full body fractional rejuvenation and deep tissue remodeling. This minimally invasive procedure targets the deeper layers of the skin in the sub-demis and demis to remodel collagen and tighten skin. Deeper treatment depths up to 8 mm from the surface of the skin remodel and liquify fat pockets improving the lumpy appearance underneath the skin.
We like to refer to this procedure as “Microneedling on Steroids” because it combines MicroNeedling and Radio Frequency. energy delivered through the pins deep into the tissue. RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. In the deeper layers, fat cells are liquified to reduce and remodel the fat layer.
Morpheus 8 treatment will improve skin tightness, reduce crepiness, improve texture and tone of the skin, and remodel the deep tissue including fat. Morpheus RF Microneedling can treat everything from skin laxity, wrinkles, crepey skin, fine lines, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, scars, including acne scars as well as the lumpiness associated with cellulite appearance with minimal downtime and long-lasting results.

Morpheus 8 Treatment Plan
Every Person is Different! Your Treatment Plan will be customized to You!
Your Morpheus RF Microneedling treatment plan for skin tightening on the body will be typically 4 treatments once every 4-6 weeks followed by additional treatments at 3, 6 and 12 months IF NEEDED. The treatment plan and results depend on your body, the condition of your skin, your age, the amount of laxity in the treatment areas and the amount of lumpiness and cellulite being treated.
Deeper wrinkles, significant laxity, scars, acne scars, and stretch marks typically require more treatments to get significant improvement in appearance. Our expert Morpheus Aesthetic Providers will assess your concerns and areas you are interested in treating to determine if Morpheus RF Microneedling can help you improve your concerns and determine how many treatments would be needed.
The Morpheus 8 system offers 4 different handpiece tips in total. The BODY tip or Standard Morpheus 8 are normally used on body areas. The prime tip and resurfacing tip are used on small areas typically on the face in areas around the eyes and mouth. The body tip is used to treat larger areas and for deeper penetration depths when fat layers are involved and desired to be treated.
Results Come Quickly!
Typically after two to three treatments, you will start noticing your skin looks and feels more refreshed with a new more youthful glow and some tightness in the treated areas. Results will continue to improve up to six months after your final treatment. For fat pockets, scars and stretch marks, improvement takes longer to appear.
Morpheus 8 Body RF Microneedling can be used on all skin types and colors.
What about Growth Factors or other Skin Care Products?
As a routine, a personalized skincare regimen will be included with your Morpheus 8 RF Microneedling Procedure. These skincare products are specialty “cosmeceutical” grade products that help the skin heal faster after this procedure and promote collagen production as well as protect your skin while it heals. These products really stimulate collagen production and further enhance the results of the procedure. On the body, we typically suggest our ENVIRON Body Kit, which is a 2 part system containing lactic acid as a mild exfoliant to use 2 weeks after your procedure and a daily A, C & E Body Oil that contains the building blocks of youthful skin.
Some REstrictions Before ANd After YOur Procedure
Avoid Tanning and Self Tanners within 2 weeks before and after your procedure. You can expect to see microdots up to a few days to 2 weeks on the body after the procedure along with slight redness for 3 – 5 days. You’ll need to keep the treated area(s) out of the sun and out of any standing water including pools, hot tubs, bathtubs, lakes, rivers and the ocean. Many people choose to start these procedures in the Fall and Winter months so they are finished in time for summer. But this isn’t required as long as you can stay out of the sun and standing water the procedures can be performed year round. Daily use of sunscreen is required during your treatment series, but should be part of your daily routine of healthy skin.
