Top 5 Reasons to Choose Morpheus8 - Microneedling with Radiofrequency Energy

By New York Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Joshua Zimm

Morpheus8 is a non-invasive in-office procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy for fractional treatment of the skin. This minimally invasive procedure helps to stimulate collagen production of the deep layers of the skin by using micropins to create microchannels. PRP can be applied to optimize the effects of microneedling with energy and improve recovery time. This procedure helps to turn back the clock of the aging process and can be used on all skin types with minimal downtime. Learn more about Morpheus8 Microneedling Skin Rejuvenation


1. Reason #1: Increases Firmness of Tissue (face and body)

In a safe and controlled manner, radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of the skin. This, in turn, stimulates collagen production, leading to increased firmness and elasticity of the skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin over the next few months following your procedure.


2. Reason #2: Improves Uneven Texture, Scars, and Stretchmarks

Microneedles deliver energy penetrating to the dermis at a controlled depth per the discretion of the provider for personalized treatment. This aids in resurfacing and stimulating collagen production to improve the appearance of scars and stretchmarks by retexturing the skin.


3. Reason #3: Corrects Sun Damage, Eliminates Dark Spots, and Improves Overall Skin Tone

Morpheus8 delivers energy to the damaged superficial layers of the skin. This helps to diminish hyperpigmented areas of the skin, such as areas showing signs of aging or sun damage. It also revitalizes your skin complexion, improves your skin’s radiance, skin tone, and texture, and helps to decrease your pore size.


4. Reason #4: Less risk of hyperpigmentation or Melasma

Morpheus8 is safe to perform on darker skin tones with minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which differs from other procedures like lasers that come with a higher risk of PIH


5. Reason 5: Minimal downtime

There is minimal downtime after this procedure and most of our patients can return to work the following day. Several patients leave the office with what looks like a moderate sunburn from a day at the beach, but this appearance fades over the next few hours.
