If you want to restore the peachy bloom of youth on your face and neck, the options are plentiful. Some people, however, are not quite ready for surgery and seek a nonsurgical rejuvenating treatment that is effective and long-lasting. For these women and men, Morpheus8 RF microneedling may be a good option.
What signs of aging can it address? Does Morpheus8 get rid of a double chin? Lax skin and wrinkles? Acne scars? In this blog post, our Austin team counts down some of the top uses for Morpheus8 RF microneedling.
What Are Microneedling and Morpheus8 RF Treatments?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, triggering the skin’s healing response. As these controlled injuries heal, the skin produces increased collagen, which hydrates and strengthens the skin.
Morpheus8 takes traditional microneedling methods to the next level by adding radiofrequency energy (RF) to the procedure. The RF waves can penetrate and impact the skin more deeply than traditional microneedling alone.
Here are 4 troublesome issues that can be improved with Morpheus8.
1. Double Chin
In addition to firming mildly lax skin, Morpheus8 can melt fat cells under your chin (submental fat) without the need for surgery. The heat source used in the treatment works to liquefy fat cells and firm the skin. This combined effect of Morpheus8’s skin tightening and adipose tissue remodeling contours the jawline and chin area for a more sculpted look.
You can choose to combine your Morpheus8 procedure with dermal filler for the lips or under the eyes for additional facial rejuvenation. Make sure to talk to your plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for combining Morpheus8 with other cosmetic procedures.
2. Wrinkles & Fine Lines
Men and women of all ages can use Morpheus8 to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. You may have tried treatments such as chemical peels to improve these skin issues, but Morpheus8 and its use of radiofrequency allow the treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers.
This deeper penetration can translate to more dramatic results with fewer sessions than conventional skin treatments that address only the upper layers of the skin.
3. Sagging Skin
When your skin elasticity diminishes with age, it can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and poor skin texture. Morpheus8 mildly lifts and tightens sagging skin with its combination of microneedling and RF energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Additionally, since RF energy penetrates deeper into the layers of the skin, it can contract the skin more effectively, as well as increase skin cell turnover.

4. Acne Scars
Morpheus8 treatments can help men and women embarrassed by acne scars improve their skin concerns. A study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that about 80% of people with grade 3 and 4 acne scars reduced their scarring by 2 grades after RF microneedling.
Morpheus8 RF is a versatile treatment, and it’s safe for even deeper skin types with little risk of hyperpigmentation. Your provider can determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment and discuss with you about the type of results you might expect.
