Why Choose Morpheus8?

We often receive inquiries about the difference between RF Microneedling and Morpheus8. While both treatments use radiofrequency energy and microneedling to rejuvenate the skin, there are some differences between the two procedures.

Microneedling typically uses needles that penetrate the skin to a depth of 2-3mm, while Morpheus8 uses needles that can penetrate up to 4mm. This allows Morpheus8 to target deeper layers of the skin, resulting in more dramatic results.

Another difference is the type of radiofrequency energy used during the procedure. RF Microneedling typically uses bipolar radiofrequency energy, while Morpheus8 combines bipolar and monopolar energy.

How It Works

The Morpheus8 procedure usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. As mentioned, the process involves using a device with tiny needles to create small punctures in the skin, followed by the delivery of radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. This energy heats the skin and stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.

At Dr. Anil Shah Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer personalized treatment plans to help our clients achieve their desired results, and we will work with you to ensure that your Morpheus8 treatment is tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Recovery and Results

After the Morpheus8 procedure, the recovery period is generally short and straightforward. Most patients can return to their daily activities within a day or two of the process. While some redness and swelling may occur in the treatment area, this usually subsides within a few days. And rest assured that any mild discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen for several weeks after the procedure to protect the skin is essential. Patients should also avoid using certain skincare products, such as retinoids and acids, for several days after the process to allow the skin to heal correctly.

Compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures like facelifts or laser resurfacing, the recovery period for Morpheus8 is shorter, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve their skin's appearance without surgery. Following the procedure, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your skin. Patients typically notice visible improvements in their skin within the first few days after treatment, with continued improvement over the following weeks and months as collagen production increases.
