As we get older, our bodies gradually start to produce less of essential proteins like collagen and elastin. Eventually, this starts to have negative effects on the health and appearance of our skin, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Additionally, many of us develop other cosmetic skin issues, such as stretch marks, cellulite, and scarring. These skin problems tend to make us look older and damage our self-confidence. Fortunately, treatments like Morpheus8 make it easier than ever to restore your skin’s health and youthful, vibrant complexion.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an innovative cosmetic treatment used to sculpt and refine the skin. Using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency waves, Morpheus8 is very effective for treating skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and other cosmetic skin issues.
How Does Morpheus8 Work?
Morpheus8 treatment worked by creating micro-wounds in the skin with small needles. These tiny injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and generates new, healthy skin cells. After the microneedles penetrate the skin, the Morpheus8 device delivers radiofrequency waves to the deeper layers of skin, which tightens and smooths the skin to create a more youthful appearance.
Although the standard Morpheus8 treatment is primarily used on the face, neck, and jawline, we at Montilla Plastic Surgery also offer Morpheus8 Body. Morpheus8 Body is very similar to Morpheus8, but it’s equipped to create micro-wounds and deliver radiofrequency energy in much larger areas of skin. Morpheus8 Body is a very versatile treatment that can be used to improve skin health and complexion just about anywhere on the body.
Benefits of Morpheus8 Treatment
Morpheus8 treatment offers numerous benefits for individuals looking to achieve healthier, more youthful skin. The most common benefits include:

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
Before you undergo Morpheus8 treatment, you’ll have a quick consultation with Dr. Montilla. He will discuss the treatment with you, answer all of your questions, and help you determine if Morpheus8 is truly the right choice for your needs. If you choose to proceed, the doctor will work with you to devise a custom-tailored treatment plan based on your specific aesthetic goals.
Morpheus8 treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure and typically takes only 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Although the treatment generally isn’t painful, you will likely have a topical anesthetic applied to your skin in the targeted area(s). Dr. Montilla will then slowly move the Morpheus8 handpiece over your skin, where it will create micro-wounds and deliver radiofrequency energy. Once the treatment is finished, you’ll be able to return home immediately.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
Most patients are able to resume their normal routines within 24 hours of undergoing Morpheus8 treatment. You may experience mild skin redness and discomfort, but these symptoms should fade quickly on their own.
How Long Will It Take To See Results After Morpheus8 Treatment?
You may start to notice skin improvements only a few days after your Morpheus8 treatment, but it typically takes around a month to see the full effects. Many patients require two or three treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
