Morpheus8 – sometimes referred to as radio-frequency skin tightening – is a minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment designed to completely rejuvenate the skin. Our providers use this in-office treatment to help patients overcome fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, smooth out textures, tighten sagging skin, treat hyperpigmentation and minimize the appearance of both stretch marks and scars (superficial and hypertrophic). It can even melt fat under the buttocks, above the knee, under the chin and in the buccal fat pad between the cheekbones and jawline.
The most commonly treated areas are the lower face and neck. Any area of the face and body that has wrinkles present, discoloration, skin laxity or acne scarring are suitable for the treatment!
Everything starts with an initial evaluation to make sure you’re an ideal candidate! We will listen to your wants and needs and suggest the best treatment plan to target your areas of concern. If you are in good health, experience some of the above-mentioned symptoms and are 18 years or older, you are likely eligible for this procedure. However, if you have severe sagging skin or deep wrinkles, you may not qualify for Morpheus8 – but we also offer skin tightening surgeries to help you meet your goals! If you have any metal implants (joints, dental implants, Pacemakers, etc.), you will need to discuss Morpheus8 with your provider.
After we determine your eligibility, we will schedule your in-office visit and supply you with a pre-treatment skin nectar for optimal results. We recommend a series of three treatments to start, spaced 1 month apart.
Our providers strive to make sure you are comfortable throughout the treatment. We will use a local topical numbing cream, pain relief medications and, for an extra fee, Pro-Nox to help ensure even greater comfort during the session.
Morpheus8 uses radio frequency with adjustable depths up to 4 mm (about 0.16 in) of fine surgical pins. You will have rejuvenation occurring from 2 formats, the surgical pins causing a controlled injury that results in the formation of new collagen and elastin and the radio frequency wave that also stimulates collagen and elastin formation.
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after 3 weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to 3 months post-treatment. For best results, avoid direct sun exposure and picking at the miniature scabs.
Your skin will continue to improve for up to 3 months and results will last long-term with appropriate maintenance. We suggest coming back to see us in 12 – 18 months for a follow-up treatment.
Morpheus8 can be used to treat hyperhidrosis in the armpits, hands, feet , forehead and face. For even greater results, patients can combine this treatment with Botox for excessive sweating.
The device penetrates deeper into the subdermal tissue, helping to throttle sebum and oil production in the dermis to reduce acne.
RF skin tightening can treat “cobblestone” cellulite due to skin laxity. We also offer Avéli® as an amazing, non-surgical cellulite treatment.
Our providers dial in the radiofrequency and depth for optimal results; lighter settings are ideal for the face and under eye fat pads/bags while heavier “blast settings” are great for minimizing deep, pitted scars.

After Morpheus8 body treatments, we provide each patient with their own complimentary Reform And Repair topical treatment. This product is specially designed to assist in the recovery process for both surgical and non-surgical treatments. It has proven to reduce treatment downtime, improve the recovery environment, bolster great cosmetic results and aid in the production of new collagen and elastin.
Treatments start at $845 and may go up depending on the area of concern. At your consultation, a personalized plan will be discussed with you based on your goals. We offer special package pricing for those looking for more than one area of treatment. We accept Alpheon and Care Credit for those looking for financing options.
Patients can typically go back to work the day after the procedure. You can expect swelling, redness, and some bruising. This will typically last 3-5 days. We will provide you with the proper products to apply to the treated area. After about 3 days you may apply make-up. Day 4-5 you will have slightly flakey skin. Around 5-7 days, your skin should be back to normal.
The most common side effects include: swelling, bruising, scabbing, peeling, and slight oozing. However, you can expect it to subside in a couple of days or less.
The surgical pins create a controlled injury that may result in miniature scabs in the first 24-72 hours (about 3 days) following treatment. It is important to avoid picking at the scabs to prevent skin damage and scarring. Always be sure to tell your provider if you have a history of keloids or abnormal scarring.
We recommend the Morpheus 8 treatment before Botox and fillers. If you want to receive the treatment, then you should wait one month after fillers and 2 weeks after receiving Botox to allow those injectables to settle first.
