Morpheus8 is a device that uses a mix of radiofrequency technology and micro-needling to stimulate the production of collagen. The skin’s deeper layers are targeted, creating natural anti-aging results. With the help of Morpheus8 in Austin, saggy skin can be tightened and underlying fatty tissues can be melted away by one of our surgeons.

The treatment is minimally invasive and uses a set of micro pins to renew the skin’s deeper layer. People with different skin types will safely benefit from this treatment. Darker skin tones can be treated with minimal chance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Morpheus8 treatment can be used on any area of the body where the renewal of the sub-dermal skin layer is necessary. Any parts of the body and face that exhibit acne scarring, discoloration, excess skin, stretch marks, or wrinkles are ideal for treatment. The neck, face, and abdomen are commonly treated areas.

The Benefits of Microneedling and Fractionated RF Energy

The Morpheus8 procedure achieves its results using micro-needles and fractionated radiofrequency (RF) energy. Microneedling creates microscopic controlled wounds in the skin layers, triggering the skin’s natural healing response and creating new collagen protein.

Fractionated RF energy rebuilds collagen protein and increases collagen production in the skin tissues. When collagen is remodeled and more collagen is created, this effectively improves skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and tightening skin.

Morpheus8 is an outpatient procedure and typically takes about one and a half hours to complete based on the skin area’s size to be treated. It does not require general or local anesthesia, only a topical numbing cream.

After the numbing cream has been applied to the treatment area and has taken effect, the Morpheus8 handpiece is guided over the treatment region. The micro-pins safely pierce the superficial skin layer at various depths. These micro-pins deliver RF energy to the underlying tissues.

Morpheus8 Aftercare

Ice packs can be used to control any swelling that may occur after the procedure is completed. Patient downtime and recovery time is very minimal. Patients may conduct their normal activities after the procedure is completed. Makeup can be applied within one to two days after this treatment.

It is important for patients to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and to stay away from direct sun exposure, since the skin will temporarily be more prone to sun damage. Patients should also moisturize the treatment region regularly.


One can see a significant outcome within days of the treatment. However, the most noticeable results can be seen after three weeks. Improvements can continue for three months after the treatment as new collagen is created.

The patient may have to undergo one to three Morpheus8 treatment sessions. The exact number of treatments required will depend on the issues being treated.

Morpheus8 Cost

The total cost of Morpheus8 treatment will depend on several factors. The number of treatment sessions required can affect the overall price, as can the degree of desired change and the exact issues being addressed.

I can not explain how happy I am with the results of my breast augmentation. I went in expecting them to look good but had no idea the amount of confidence it would give me!
