Microneedling with Morpheus8 is the all-around jack-of-all-trades procedure when it comes to facial skin rejuvenation. Not only does Morpheus8’s microneedling enhance skin texture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, treat scarring, and provide the skin a younger, glowing look — but it also tightens and contours the skin! Unlike chemical peels or CoolPeel, which focuses on improving skin texture, irregular pigmentation and reducing wrinkles, Morpheus8 also tightens skin laxity and reduces superficial fat pockets to create a defined, younger appearance.


What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency microneedling (RF) to stimulate collagen production in the deeper skin layers to create a tighter, smoother surface via heat and microneedling. It’s a two-in-one procedure that pulses RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold-plated microneedles. First, the energy that is transmitted through the needles circles back the electrodes on the skin. Then, the RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits. Radiofrequency microneedling stimulates greater amounts of new collagen formation with its ability to stimulate the undersurface of the skin when compared to other laser treatments and chemical peels.  Unlike many other microneedling devices, the Morpheus8 microneedling system is able to stimulate heat at a deeper level which provides the added benefit of reducing small pockets of unwanted fat in the area as well.  For optimal results, we generally recommend 3-4 procedures. Even so, many patients report healthier, tighter skin as early as treatment one. 


What Benefits Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Have?

RF Microneedling using the Morpheus8 system isn’t limited to just the face — it also can help tighten and correct skin all over the body. Not only are RF microneedling treatments safe, effective, and renowned amongst the cosmetic surgery world, but they also offer impressive results and minimal time needed for recovery. It’s a great midway point for patients who aren’t ready for a surgical facelift or body lift. RF microneedling is also a great option to refresh the appearance of your skin a few years after a facelift or body lift surgery.

Here are some examples of what microneedling with Morpheus8 can do for you:

  • Tighten and contour the skin
  • Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment
  • Reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and laxity
  • Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
  • Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look


What Parts Of My Body Can Microneedling Tighten?

Virtually all body areas that can benefit from tightening, skin resurfacing, and skin corrections are candidates for microneedling. Since Morpheus8 is so customizable, it can even be used in especially sensitive areas of the body such as cheeks and eye bags. Some of the most popular areas patients use Morpheus8 for are: 

  • Face
  • Jaw
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

While microneedling is especially sought after for its nonsurgical skin tightening abilities, many also use it for other skincare treatments. 

Why Is Morpheus8 The Best RF Microneedling System?

Morpheus8 is the best radiofrequency microneedling system option due to its cutting-edge technology, increased effectiveness, and precise targeting. Morpheus8’s results are far more impressive than other microneedling options. Additionally, Morpheus8 has higher penetration depth, Adjustable Multi-pulse Modes (BURST), five times higher energy/needle, and intense bulk heating. In comparison, other microneedling options have lower penetration depth, a single pulse mode, low energy/needle, and no bulk heating, but Morpheus8 also gives impressive results even after just one treatment. With its 25 thin gold-coated micro pins, lattice design, and thermal power, Morpheus8 remains the best radiofrequency microneedling option on the market.

Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Hurt?

RF Microneedling with Morpheus8 is definitely not a spa type procedure. However, we here at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery prioritize patient comfort above all else. Therefore, we’ll provide and apply a highly effective topical numbing cream before every treatment and monitor patient comfort levels throughout the treatment. With that being said, the discomfort will never be unbearable. Many patients find the numbing cream to be precisely what they need to ensure a smooth procedure.


Can Radiofrequency Microneedling Replace a Facelift?

It depends on what the patient is looking for. In some cases, microneedling with Morpheus8 can replace a facelift. In other cases, the patient may prefer a facelift to achieve the desired facial contouring results and also utilize the Morpheus8 treatment to improve the appearance of their facial skin. RF Microneedling results are a midpoint between chemical peels/CoolPeel and surgical facelifts. This means the results will be more drastic than peels, but not quite as drastic as facelifts. If you’re not sure which procedure is appropriate for you, then we would love to schedule a free consultation with you to assess your goals, skin type, lifestyle, and more to help you achieve your skin goals!
