About RF Microneedling

If your skin looks dull, tired, wrinkled, or marked with scars, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 might be your ideal solution. RF microneedling is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure wherein a specialized device is used to make micro-punctures on the skin’s surface while channeling radiofrequency waves into the skin’s underlying dermal layers. This triggers collagen production, thereby reversing the signs of aging and acne damage. We provide RF microneedling using the cutting-edge Morpheus8 device to ensure optimal safety and natural results.

How does RF microneedling work?

RF microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that combines the capabilities of two skin rejuvenation techniques — microneedling and radiofrequency therapy. During the procedure, the Morpheus8 device is used to make micro-punctures on the uppermost layers of the skin’s surface, thereby triggering the body’s internal skin cell regeneration and collagen production capabilities. While puncturing the skin’s surface, the microneedles also deliver radiofrequency energy in depths of 2 to 4 millimeters, thereby triggering skin contracture and collagen production. This makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful.

Am I a suitable candidate for RF microneedling?

You’re a suitable candidate for RF microneedling if you have acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, surgical scars, pigmentation problems, or textural problems on your skin’s surface. Most of these problems occur because your body’s ability to produce collagen decreases with age, and collagen is essential for skin’s youthful firmness. RF microneedling activates collagen production to help you achieve and maintain youthful skin. However, if you have active acne, you should postpone the treatment until you’ve brought your breakouts under control.

What happens during RF microneedling?

Your Morpheus8 treatment will be performed in our luxurious medical center in Boston. The cosmetic provider will cleanse your face and apply a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort. After adjusting the device according to your specific skin quality and concerns, the cosmetic provider will move it across your face. The Morpheus8 device contains ultra-fine needles that will make micro-punctures on your skin’s surface while delivering radiofrequency energy. The process should conclude within 30 minutes.
