RF MICRONEEDLING

Radio Frequency Microneedling uses a combination of radio frequency energy and a grid of tiny needles to create targeted micro-injuries to the deep layers of the dermis. Your body’s healing process following the microneedling treatment creates a constriction and tightening of the skin and a stimulation of collagen and elastin production. 


What is Morpheus8?

 

Morpheus8 is a Sub-Dermal Adipose Remodeling device (SARD) that penetrates into the deep layers of the dermis to reduce fat while remodeling and contouring your face and neck.


 

What does RF Microneedling treat?

 

Microneedling treatments work extremely well on the areas of the face and neck that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring. The technology of the Morpheus8 allows precise targeting of the contours of the face as well as the delicate areas around the mouth and the eyes.

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 with 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?

There is minimal bruising and swelling possible up to 72 hours following your Morpheus8 treatment. 

Possible post-treatment sensations that should resolve within 1-2 weeks following the procedure:

  • Mild Redness

  • Mild Tenderness

When Can I Begin Wearing Makeup?

 

Makeup that is applied with new or clean brushes and applicators can be used ​72 hours following your AccuTite or FaceTite procedure.

When Can I Return to Work?

 

While there is no downtime required following RF microneedling, we suggest that our patients minimize activities for 72 hours (including going to the gym!).
