I have lines and wrinkles, but I’m not ready for a facelift

Whether you feel like you’re too young for a facelift or simply prefer a less invasive, more affordable alternative to facelift surgery that does not require an extended recovery period, Morpheus8 may be right for you. Often referred to as a nonsurgical mini facelift, Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment can treat a wide range of age-related skin concerns, as well as a number of issues not necessarily related to age, including:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Mild skin laxity (loose skin)
  • Mildly droopy jowls or jawline
  • Stubborn fat under the chin
  • Saggy neck skin
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rough or scaly skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

How does Morpheus8 RF microneedling work?

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary system that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with traditional microneedling. During the treatment, a handheld roller device is passed over the skin. Tiny needles in the device lightly puncture the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries, which ignite the body’s natural healing and regeneration processes. At the same time, radiofrequency energy heats tissues beneath the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen growth and adipose tissue remodeling. Over the course of several weeks after treatment, patients will begin to notice improvements in the texture, firmness, contour, and vibrancy of their skin.

Does RF microneedling hurt?

Prior to your Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the skin’s surface to minimize any discomfort you may experience during the procedure.

How long does it take skin to heal after Morpheus8?

The immediate side effects of Morpheus8 RF microneedling include redness, irritation, swelling, and itching. These typically subside within about 24 – 48 hours, at which time most patients are comfortable returning to work and other activities. After about 2 – 3 days, patients will begin to notice their micro-injuries scab over and flake away. During the RF microneedling healing process, patients should avoid sun exposure, keep their skin moisturized, and abstain from picking or scratching their skin.

How many Morpheus8 treatments will I need?

Many men and women achieve noticeable improvements after a single Morpheus8 microneedling treatment, but most patients can expect to undergo a series of 2 – 4 treatment sessions for optimal results. During your initial consultation for RF microneedling in Leavenworth, KS, our knowledgeable team will recommend the most appropriate treatment schedule to keep your skin looking its best over time.
