Morpheus8 Skin Tightening

Conveniently located to serve St. Petersburg, FL and Tampa, FL

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses microneedling combined with radiofrequency energy to heat and tighten skin at multiple different depths. In addition to tightening skin, it promotes new collagen formation and skin remodeling.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Helps:

  • Improve lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Smooth skin texture
  • Reduce scars
  • Eye bags or loose skin
  • Improve overall facial and neck appearance

Morpheus8 Procedure

Morpheus8 can be performed in the office with either local anesthesia or sedation depending on your comfort level and preference. Numbing cream is placed on the skin to improve comfort. The Morpheus8 device is then used to heat and tighten different layers of the skin of the face and/or neck in order to achieve optimal skin tightening results. Generally, 3 treatments are used to create the best results and are spaced 6-8 weeks apart. The downtime is minimal with some redness and slight swelling which may last 1-3 days after the procedure. No incisions are required. Results are usually seen about 3-4 months after treatment but may continue to improve for up to one year after the procedure. Morpheus8 may be combined with other procedures such as FaceTite or a facelift.

1. What is Morpheus8 and how does it work?

Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge non-surgical skin-tightening procedure that utilizes radio frequency technology. It stimulates collagen production, effectively tightening and smoothing wrinkles on the face and body to provide a non-invasive solution for skin tightening.

2. How long do the effects of Morpheus8 last?

Morpheus8 skin tightening is an excellent cosmetic option since the effects of the treatment typically last for 12 months to 3 years. Please note, however, that the results you get from Morpheus8 depend on various factors such as your age, skin condition, environment, lifestyle, and more.

3. Is Morpheus8 really worth it?

Yes, Morpheus8 does work! Many clients report their skin having a healthy glow after Morpheus8 treatment. However, as collagen and elastin production takes a bit of time, most clients reported seeing impressive results 1 to 2 months after the initial treatment.

4. Is 2 sessions of Morpheus8 enough?

Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment can be used on all skin types and improves wrinkles, sagging skin, blemishes, bumps, scars, pores, and even hyperhidrosis. For optimal results, you may need 3 to 4 treatment sessions or more, depending on the severity of your skin condition.

5. Is Morpheus8 very painful?

Some patients handle Morpheus8 with aplomb using only topical numbing, while others, despite high pain thresholds, find the experience challenging. With the pain management protocols currently in place, the treatment is not painful per se, but it might be slightly irksome for some patients.

6. What is the best age for Morpheus8?

Most patients are between 30 and 55 years old, although the treatment can be effective for people outside this age range. Morpheus8 is best suited for people who have specific concerns, such as wrinkles or sagging skin.
