More and more people are choosing non-surgical options like Morpheus8 with RF skin tightening because the treatment provides outstanding results and allows them to return to work quickly without an extended period of downtime or discomfort.
Men and women can live life more beautifully with Morpheus8. The revolutionary system combines microneedling technology with radiofrequency energy (RF) to remove excess fat while tightening and contouring areas of the face and body. Morpheus8 introduces collagen fibers, which rejuvenate aging skin and reverse various skin conditions like acne and the effects of sun exposure.
What is Morpheus8 Skin Tightening?
Morpheus8 is a groundbreaking treatment that offers impressive benefits with revolutionary, FDA-approved technology. The device sends RF energy deep into the tissues while applying minimally invasive microneedling pressure for subdermal remodeling to transform even the most challenging areas, like fatty neck deposits and jowls, without surgery. Morpheus8 can address both large, easily accessible areas like the abdomen and smaller regions that require precision.
Naderi Center skin experts customize the treatment to match the patient’s goals.

After an in-depth discussion, reviewing the patient’s medical history, and evaluating their skin tone, texture, and elasticity, the Naderi provider creates a unique treatment plan, which may include a medical-grade skincare regimen and options like Botox, fillers, and Morpheus8 FDA-approved skin tightening treatment for the face or body.
Morpheus8 patients are encouraged to avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen and Aleve, blood thinners, herbal supplements, fish oil, and vitamin E for one to two weeks before the treatment to minimize the risk of bruising. The patient may also be encouraged to stop using retinol, topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide products, and hydroquinone 48 hours before the treatment.
Patients should avoid sun exposure or using a tanning bed for a minimum of 24 hours before the treatment because this will temporarily darken the skin and affect the treatment. The Naderi skin specialist will review the patient’s medications and skincare products before discussing preparation for Morpheus8 during the consultation.
How Morpheus8 Works
Morpheus8 features a microneedling device that utilizes radiofrequency energy. The procedure is customized to match the patient’s goals and may treat areas on the face, neck, and/or body. Before treating the site, the Naderi skin specialist applies a local anesthetic to the skin.
Morpheus8 contours and revitalizes the face and body using subdermal adipose remodeling (SARDS) technology, which combines micro-needling and radiofrequency energy to permeate the skin and fat. Morpheus8 safely stimulates and reorganizes collagen for a smooth and refreshed appearance as it reaches below the skin and into the fat.
Morpheus8 features dual handpieces and four fractional tips with different microneedle configurations to increase treatment functionality and customized results. The Morpheus8 handpiece addresses smaller treatment areas, and the Morpheus8 Body handpiece is used for more extensive and deeper tissue treatments.
The Naderi skin specialist chooses the best microneedling options for the patient based on their desired outcome, including reducing the appearance of spider veins, broken capillaries, shrinking enlarged pores, treating discoloration, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus8 microneedling superficially damages the top layer of the epidermis, and the body responds by producing more collagen, which is a building block that is lost with age. Each handpiece can be used with four different microneedle configurations:
- Prime has 12 pins
- Resurfacing has 24 pins
- Morpheus8 has 24 pins
- Body has 40 pins
Morpheus8 Radiofrequency (RF)
The Naderi skin specialist chooses either the Morpheus8 or Morpheus8 Body handpiece to deliver radiofrequency energy into the selected area. While microneedling stimulates the epidermis (top layer of the skin), RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin known as the dermis. The RF energy tightens and contours the area.
Combining radiofrequency energy and micro-needling leads to heightened collagen production, which helps smooth the skin, decrease the visibility of wrinkles, reduce excess fat, and contour the area. The Naderi skin specialist chooses the fractional tip configuration and handheld device to clinically deliver proven RF energy to multiple treatment depths (0.5 mm to 7 mm).
Naderi Center patients typically describe experiencing a mild warming sensation along with a slight prickling sensation during the 15-minute to one-hour treatment. Each patient’s goals are unique, and the specialist recommends one to three treatments scheduled for four to six weeks apart to achieve maximum results.
Morpheus8 skin tightening recovery lasts about two days. Patients should expect minimal swelling and small red dots in the treatment area. Most patients resume normal activities and enjoy wearing their regular makeup after two days.
Each patient receives post-procedural instructions and typically returns for a series of one to three treatments based on their goals. Patients must use sunblock after Morpheus8 treatments. Most patients see results within just a few days and experience more significant effects in three weeks to three months as collagen is stimulated and begins to rebuild.
The Naderi skin specialist may perform a series of three Morpheus8 procedures to achieve exceptional, longer-lasting results. The patient should avoid direct sunlight for about four weeks. After a short recovery period, patients experience smoother skin, improved skin tone, improved contours, invisibly reduced wrinkles, reduced acne, and multiple benefits.
