As the skin makes its way through the rigorous, natural aging process, many of our patients are wondering if there’s any chance to regain a more youthful skin appearance and self-confidence. You must be thinking: “This is possible, but how do I manage that without going under the knife?”  

In this day and age, enjoying a youthful look doesn’t have to be something you can only dream of. It could be more accessible to you than you might think: the 2019 American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual report indicates that more than 1,000,000 surgical and nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedures were performed in the US alone. Out of these, about 90% were nonsurgical, minimally-invasive procedures, a clear indicator of growing preference towards alternative treatments.

Our medical team, led by Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. William J. Vinyard is prepared to make your face look more youthful, plump, and naturally tighter with our revolutionary anti-aging tool: Morpheus8! Today, we’re taking a look at the top 4 results from this innovative treatment.  

What is Morpheus8?


Morpheus8 is one of the newest advancements in subdermal adipose remodeling, perfect for skin rejuvenation. This form of treatment harnesses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target deep skin tissue, improving skin tone, texture, pores and laxity without worrying about surgical incisions and stitches! Morpheus8 is an effective treatment for most skin types. Furthermore, it is especially effective for aging skin imperfections.

Dr. Vinyard commonly uses this treatment to treat the lower face and the neck, achieving stunning results when dealing with sagging skin, scarring, sun damage, or stretch marks. The reviews published by our patients prove his experience and his ability to deliver the astonishing results of your dreams!

How Does Morpheus8 Work?


By channeling the power of micro-needling and RF energy, Morpheus8 stimulates collagen production through volumetric heating and coagulation. The result – tighter, more natural-looking skin. But how does Morpheus8 achieve these results?

The Morpheus8 device utilizes microneedles to penetrate the outer skin layers up to 8 mm, which is more than most skin rejuvenation devices. These tiny perforations stimulate the body to initiate the healing process, creating the perfect setting for collagen and elastin production (the skin’s healthy building blocks). After the procedure, you will enjoy smoother, more youthful skin, with little to no damage to the external dermal tissue.

One of the invaluable advantages brought by Morpheus8 is the depth at which the microneedles can penetrate: the device isn’t limited to the superficial tissue; on the contrary, it sends RF energy toward the adipose fat, known for the development of jowls.

Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8?


If you’re concerned with saggy skin tissue, acne scarring, or signs of aging skin, Morpheus8 is the ideal solution for you. Moreover, it brings a helping hand in improving skin texture and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. However, make sure that you have a complimentary consultation at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery to assure you are a good candidate before choosing Morpheus8.

Recovery and Results


After your Morpheus8 treatment, you may experience low levels of redness and swelling, which are common side-effects of the treatment itself. However, they should disappear upward to a week following the procedure, though recovery time could differ from patient to patient. Avoiding direct sun exposure and makeup, coupled with an effective moisturizer, help to reduce recovery time.

As for the results, you will begin to gradually notice improvements within a few weeks and will continue to see more improvements in the following months. The full effects can be seen at 6 months up to one year. 

Is Morpheus8 Painful?


Although this treatment is not a painless procedure, our patients describe it as tolerable.  Our practice utilizes topical numbing cream before the procedure to help with any discomfort. 

Plastic surgeons are fully aware of the fact that, for some patients, the pain levels might present themselves problematic. For that reason, in case you’re looking for a less painful alternative, we recommend a couple of adjustments, such as lower energy levels and additional treatment sessions, ideal for more streamlined treatment.

What is The Cost of The Morpheus8 Treatment?


According to RealSelf member reviews, the cost of the Morpheus8 treatment averages around $2,000 for a series. However, several circumstances influence the overall price: number of treatment sessions, the provider’s experience, and reviews, etc. Choosing the right provider can make the difference between a successful procedure and a botched one, so make sure that you choose an experienced provider, well-versed in skin rejuvenation procedures.

The price for a Morpheus8 procedure starts as low as $62/month. The Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery offers the financing solutions to assure their patients are able to undergo their desired treatments at an affordable price.   

The 4 Most Popular Results from Morpheus8 Treatments


What are the most popular results from this procedure? Let’s take a moment to analyze the essential ones:

1)  Improves skin texture – Morpheus8 improves the appearance of scars and stretchmarks through skin retexturing. The collagen production, stimulated by RF energy, leads to increased firmness and skin elasticity.

2)  Corrects sun damage and improves overall skin tone – the RF energy, delivered to the superficial layers of the dermis which improves your skin’s tone and radiance.

3)  Reduces signs of aging skin – Morpheus8 is a valuable tool against fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.  The elasticity of the skin is increased in response to the RF energy stimulation.

4)  Removes unwanted pockets of fat – the depth at which the RF energy is deployed allows the provider to target the fat layer as well. Schedule a consultation at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery if you want to include fat removal in your procedure.
