When it comes to addressing some of the most common skin concerns, Morpheus8 is quickly becoming a favorite in the world of cosmetics. Thanks to its ability to treat skin of all different types and colors, this inclusive treatment is great for everyone.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced form of microneedling that comes with the benefit of skin tightening through radiofrequency energy. It combines the principles of microneedling, which stimulates new collagen production through controlled wounding, with radiofrequency energy to contract existing collagen. The benefits are twofold, making it one of the best ways to tighten lax skin without surgery, downtime, or incisions.

“Dr. Rocheford and her team are the best of the best. The results of my breast lift and reduction surgery are better than I ever hoped. I love how I look, the way clothes fit, and freedom from the weight and strain on my upper body that I lived with way too long. Every detail from pre-op, to surgery day to post op care went smoothly. Any questions I had along the way were answered promptly. I felt safe, well cared for and that I was valued, listened to and the entire team was working to see that I had a good outcome. Dr. Rocheford succeeded brilliantly in giving me that good outcome. My life is better, from both a physical and emotional standpoint. I highly recommend Dr. Rocheford as a plastic surgeon, but also for the excellence of every aspect of her practice.”

“I had searched and consulted with a few other plastic surgeons before I found Dr. Rocheford. I was really surprised that she met with me in-person for my consultation. She’s skilled and knowledgeable at her work. I didn’t hesitate to have her perform my tummy tuck surgery. I’m a super anxious person and Dr. Rocheford responded to all of my text messages day and night – weekdays and weekends. She’s the best choice in my opinion and her work is exceptional in quality.”

Details of Morpheus8 Treatment

  • Procedure:
    • Morpheus8 uses a topical anesthetic so you remain comfortable during treatment. Once you’re ready, the specialized handpiece is applied to the skin where micro-needles generate wounds in the skin and emit mono-polar radiofrequency energy. Once the area is treated, you can return home.
  • Downtime:
    • There’s no downtime required after Morpheus8, although you should avoid exercising, sweating, and exposure to heat for 1-2 days after treatment. You may experience a sunburned appearance. Our team will make sure you understand which skincare products to use while your skin recovers.
  • Bruising:
    • Certain areas can be more prone to bruising, but it’s otherwise minimal. You can take steps to prevent bruising by avoiding blood-thinning medications for at least one week before treatment.
  • Swelling:
    • Most patients experience only minimal swelling which subsides quickly.
  • Redness:
    • You can expect some redness and sensitivity afterward, but it typically goes away within the day.
  • Sun Exposure:
    • It’s extremely important to wear SPF30+ after treatment since your skin will be photosensitive. Skipping sunscreen means a risk of hyperpigmentation as you recover.
  • Final Result:
    • Most patients require a package of 1-3 treatments with results emerging at 2-3 weeks after each session. You can return for yearly or bi-yearly touch-up treatments as needed in order to maintain your results.
