As we age, everything from the texture to the tightness of our skin changes. At Genesis, our mission is to bring back the natural, youthful appearance of your face and neck with non-invasive Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatments.
Youthful skin is maintained by specific building blocks. In order to postpone or correct the signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds and jowls, it is essential that we consider what those building blocks are. In our office, we offer treatments that have been proven to reach deep beneath the epidermis where the skin’s foundation begins. Morpheus8 is one of the most advanced skin tightening and toning methods we have seen to date. We are proud to provide this technology for patients interested in meaningful facial rejuvenation without surgery.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an advanced Microneedling treatment developed to stimulate remodeling in the adipose tissue of the dermis. Designed by In Mode Aesthetics, a leading manufacturer in the radiofrequency technology arena, Morpheus8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency with the Microneedling technique.
On its own, Microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus8, collagen increase is only the icing on the cake. By inserting radiofrequency energy to tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening. RF (short for radiofrequency) Microneedling treatments combine the collagen-boosting, skin resurfacing techniques of Microneedling with skin-tightening fractionated radio frequency energy to dramatically lift, tone, and tighten your skin.
What is the benefit of Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Fractional Energy?
Fractional RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles, rebuild collagen (tighten skin), and remodel fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with little downtime and no discomfort. The advantage of RF micro needling is the surface of the skin is kept intact, while the energy to stimulate rejuvenation is delivered to a customizable depth beneath the skin where collagen and elastin are produced, and unwanted fat may reside. This allows for better skin contouring and tightening as well as wrinkle reduction with a more comfortable patient experience.
This innovative, FDA-approved treatment targets the deep layers of the skin to reduce wrinkles, build collagen, and eliminate unwanted fat. At the same time, beneficial heat from the RF energy tightens your skin. Because the RF energy goes so deep, you’ll experience faster, more remarkable results with little downtime.

What areas can Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the face or body that would benefit from skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and refined contouring. Morpheus8 is an incredible treatment for the face and neck. Other common treatment areas include scars (acne or surgical), knees, stretch marks, and labia.
How many Morpheus8 treatments will I need?
Depending on your particular needs and desires, 1-3 treatments are typical. Morpheus8 Treatments are permanent, but skin continues to age consistent with lifestyle and genetics. Skin needs to be encouraged to continue to create new collagen and elastin in order to maintain a youthful appearance. Therefore, subsequent treatments may be recommended every 18 months to 2 years as part of a rejuvenation maintenance plan.
How quickly will I see results with Morpheus8?
Some tightening will be visible immediately. New collagen and elastin formation begin after about 4 weeks, and becomes most noticeable about 3-6 months after treatment, and continues to improve up to a year.
Is Morpheus8 suitable for all skin types?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types.
What can I expect during a Morpheus8 procedure?
Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center places the highest value on patient safety, comfort, and achieving the best possible results. Therefore, a thorough consultation with one of our Aestheticians is done prior to any procedure. On the day of the procedure, a local, numbing medication and some oral, relaxing medications will be administered to ensure comfort. The procedure itself takes about an hour. We do ask that patients have a responsible adult to drive them home afterwards.
What kind of post-procedure care is required with Morpheus8?
An ointment is applied for 48 hours after a treatment. After that, moisturizer, makeup, and sunscreen may be applied. Mild swelling and redness, and minimal to no bruising may persist for a week but may be covered by makeup such as a medical-grade, breathable foundation. There is no oozing or discomfort afterwards. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure, and use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing a future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles, slow the aging process, and protect your results. Your Medically Certified Aesthetician can recommend the best Medical Grade Skin Care products for you.
Can Morpheus8 be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 is often combined with other procedures for a truly customizable rejuvenation plan. The most effective is the Genesis nonsurgical face and neck lift with Morpheus8, Botox, Jeauveau, and fillers can be added to create the complete scarless facelift with minimal downtime and completely natural looking results!
