3 Things to Know About Morpheus8 Skin Tightening

Microneedling is not new to the facial aesthetic world, but recently Morpheus8 has been drawing a lot of attention to this topic. Traditional micro needling punctures the skin causing tiny micro-injuries which stimulate your body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen growth resulting in a healing process that leads to a more even skin tone and a smoother overall appearance of skin. Morpheus8 Skin Tightening takes this process to the next level. While still utilizing all the benefits of traditional microneedling, Morpheus8 adds an additional element of radiofrequency technology. Allowing it to deliver a skin transformation like never before, allowing patients to diminish wrinkles and tighten loose skin like never before.

The addition of RF technology is the element that puts Morpheus8 in a class all its own. RF technology works by deeply penetrating the skin and targeting collagen and elastin fibers. These are the very elements of the skin that are responsible for the skin’s elasticity and fullness. By targeting these fibers, Morpheus8 can remodel the underlying tissue of the skin, producing an end result with reduced fine lines and wrinkles as well as an improved texture, all with minimal downtime. This procedure is FDA-approved and considered safe and effective, and best of all, it can be fully customized to the individual needs of each patient.

How Do I Get the Best Results From Morpheus8?

Before beginning any aesthetic treatment, it’s important to do your own research to find out if this treatment is a good fit for your aesthetic goals and how to achieve the best results. When you work with us, our highly trained staff will make sure you understand the proper preparations you need to make before treatment as well as aftercare. So let’s break down some key elements of this treatment to see if it’s right for you.

Ideal Candidates:

Morpheus8 is best for patients who are in good overall health but are experiencing skin conditions such as facial skin lacking in elasticity, uneven texture, or acne scars. This treatment has proven to be the most effective at treating lost skin. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with this procedure but are ready to see improvement in their skin issues.

Before the Treatment:

Before any treatment, it’s important for you to consult a professional. At Wingfield, when you work with us, we’ll examine any area you’d like to treat and make sure it’s the right treatment plan to help you meet your goals. If you decide to pursue the Morpheus8 treatment, it is best if you disclose any existing skin conditions, allergies, or questions during the initial consultation.


At Wingfield Aesthetics, we will discuss aftercare before your service begins. Proper aftercare for the Morpheus8 treatment will be provided from our office at the time of your treatment.

However, general things to keep in mind are avoiding the direct sun for a few days, using gentle skin care, and avoiding exposure to harsh chemicals that could irritate your skin. You should also keep your skin clean and moisturized, and it’s probably best to avoid rigorous exercise for a few days. Because this procedure works deeply under the surface of the skin as well as on the surface of the skin, it’s best to support your body as it undergoes the healing process to enhance your optimal results.

What are the Pros and Cons Of Morpheus8?

Like any medical treatment, this procedure has both pros and cons. Having a solid understanding of a procedure’s features and benefits, as well as its limitations, will help you to make an informed decision about if this procedure is right for you. Let’s start with the pros.

Patients love this procedure because of its personalized approach; it allows practitioners to adjust the treatment to the patient in front of them. Meaning they can adjust the depth and intensity based on the individual’s comfort level and aesthetic goals. It also has the added benefit of RF technology, which provides results beyond what traditional microneedling could do, stimulating collagen at a deeper level and producing tighter, firmer skin as well as an improved texture.

Compared to more invasive procedures Morpheus8 requires minimal downtime, meaning most patients have the ability to return to their daily activities within a few days. And perhaps the greatest benefit of this treatment is its long-lasting results. Because the collagen production that is triggered with this treatment continues to improve over time, the results are long-lasting results that continue to improve throughout the healing process.

Now onto the cons, every aesthetic procedure comes with its limitations, and this is no exception. Unfortunately, some patients will experience mild discomfort during the procedure. At Wingfield Aesthetics, we keep your comfort level in mind, and that is why we offer topical numbing creams to minimize any potential pain. Another negative is that this procedure isn’t always a one-and-done treatment. For optimal results, some patients will prefer to have multiple sessions to achieve their desired results. It’s also common for patients to experience redness or mild swelling at the treatment site; these are usually temporary and will subside within a few days. Mopheus8 is not always the best solution for all skin conditions. Those with severe skin laxity may want to pursue a more invasive treatment.

Overall, Morpheus8 provides a safe and effective treatment that can benefit patients who have a variety of skin conditions. Its versatility and effectiveness make it a popular choice among those seeking non-surgical options.

How Long Does It Take To See Results, and Do They Last?

This is usually the million-dollar question with any aesthetic treatment. Patients want to know how long it will take to see results and how long those results will last. Although we can provide an answer based on typical results, it’s important to note that all people are different, and all bodies respond differently to treatments. Meaning the timeline and longevity of results can vary from patient to patient.

Visible Results:

Let’s talk about when you’re going to see results. Typically patients start noticing improvements in their skin tone and texture within just a few days to a week of their first treatment session. The initial results are often credited to the RF energy and the impressive tightening effect it has on the skin. But the real impressive changes occur over the coming weeks as the newly stimulated collagen production becomes noticeable. One of the reasons patients love this treatment is that the results continue to improve as collagen production and healing occur under the surface of the skin.

Longevity of Results:

Morpheus8 results are considered long-lasting compared to traditional microneedling. With the traditional service, you’d still see results, but the added benefit from the RF technology allows for deep tissue remodeling. It actually generates growth in collagen and elastin fibers which provide structural support to your skin. The majority of patients report enjoying the benefits of this procedure for as long as 12-18 months. Of course, every person is different, so individual results can vary, and factors such as age, lifestyle, and sun exposure can influence the longevity of your results. Most patients find that booking a periodic maintenance session is helpful in maintaining their look. Typically this is not needed more than once a year, and it can help
prolong the initial treatment’s effects.
