RF microneedling enhances collagen production by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling using the Morpheus8 triggers collagen production using two methods that work together to produce better results. RF (radiofrequency energy) boosts the effects of microneedling and adds the ability to reach deeper layers of skin for more intensive skin remodeling. Its effectiveness on the skin of the face and body makes the Morpheus8 more versatile than other types of microneedling.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

The Morpheus8 can treat areas almost anywhere on the face or body using customizable tips. Microneedling uses small needles to create tiny channels in the skin. This causes the surrounding cells to initiate a cascade of healing signals that start collagen development. The needles help deliver RF energy deep into the tissue to stimulate collagen production and remove subcutaneous fat. RF energy breaks up this layer of fat to leave your features looking subtly more sculpted and firm.

The Morpheus8 offers a comprehensive variety of settings and tips. Variable needle lengths allow your provider to control the depth and intensity of the collagen remodeling needed. Addressing concerns that reach the deeper layers of the skin will require more intensive treatment than surface issues.

What Can RF Microneedling Treat?

Morpheus8 treats lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and acne scars. While many patients think of it as a facial treatment, it can be used safely and effectively throughout the body, improving skin laxity, the appearance of stretch marks, and even vaginal and labial skin.

What is RF Microneedling Treatment Like?

Your provider will evaluate your skin concerns and choose a setting that will provide you with the best results. Your skin will be numbed with a topical cream, so you should not feel discomfort during treatment. Your provider will use a tip sized for the treatment area, whether a small area around the eyes or a large area on the body.

We offer a three-treatment package to help you achieve maximum results. Most people enjoy the best benefits from microneedling after three treatment sessions.

Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?

You may have one to three days of redness and sensitivity as the skin recovers. Your healing skin will be highly sun-sensitive, so use a quality SPF product and avoid sun exposure. You can return to work and other activities as soon as you feel comfortable with your appearance, usually within a few days at most.

The time when the microneedling channels remain open makes a perfect opportunity to apply medical-grade skincare products for maximum absorption. The channels allow products to reach the active layers of the skin, making them more effective.

Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Most people make good candidates for RF microneedling. It works safely on all skin types and tones. RF microneedling might not be appropriate for use on people with an active skin condition in the treatment area or people with a tendency to form keloid scars.
