Radiofrequency Microneedling uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and a grid of tiny needles to create targeted micro-injuries to the various layers of the dermis.
The body reacts to the microneedling with a boost of collagen and elastin, causing the skin to tighten and remodel.
The Morpheus8 microneedling tip has 24-pins that extend to a depth of 4 mm, targeting each layer of the skin, providing results that will continue to improve over a six-month period as the skin goes through it's natural cycle of renewal.

RF MICRONEEDLING BODY TREATMENT BASICS
What areas of the body does RF Microneedling treat?
This treatment is excellent for treating stretch marks and loose skin on the arms, chest, stomach, thighs, and hands.
How long does the procedure take?
RF Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in our Pond Hill office. The full process of the procedure takes less than 30 minutes following topical numbing of the skin.
How long is the recovery process?
You will see a visible difference in the quality of your skin within 3-5 days of your Morpheus8 treatment. RF Microneedling produces the best results after 1-3 sessions, each session being performed approximately 3 weeks apart.
Patients notice a difference in the appearance of their skin once the collagen renews - this process takes about 6 weeks.
How long can I expect swelling, bruising or discomfort after the procedure?
Bruising on the body is less common than the face since the vessels are typically buried a bit deeper. There is minimal bruising and swelling possible up to 72 hours following your Morpheus8 treatment. Possible post-treatment sensations that should resolve within one day following the procedure:
