MORPHEUS8 RF Microneedling for skin tightening

If you are looking to lift, firm and tighten your skin, it is time you discover the skin tightening benefits of Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. This minimally invasive treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, address mild to moderate sagging skin, and improve your skin's overall tone and texture.  

RF microneedling utilizes tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These channels stimulate the body's natural healing response, encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the skin, further stimulating collagen production and skin tightening. This treatment can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, abdomen, and arms. We offer Morpheus8 RF microneedling at our Marin location.

What to expect

Before your procedure, the areas being treated will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for 45 minutes for your comfort. The RF microneedling device is then used to create micro-channels in the skin. Radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. The treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

You will start to see noticeable results within a few weeks of your first treatment. However, the full results of Morpheus8 RF microneedling will take several months to appear as your body continues to produce new collagen. Most patients require 3-4 treatments for optimal results. 


After your nonsurgical skin tightening procedure, the treated areas may be slightly red, swollen, or numb. This is normal and should resolve on its own within about a week. During your consultation, Dr. Evans and her team will discuss the best ways to care for your skin after your treatment, including keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Most patients will not be able to see visible results immediately after the procedure. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and growth is a gradual process, you can expect to see the full results of your treatment within 1 – 4 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.  Most patients require 3-4 sessions to achieve optimal results. During your consultation, Dr. Evans will help you develop your custom treatment plan based on your needs and cosmetic goals.

Why is collagen important for Morpheus8 RF microneedling?                                                                                                                               Collagen is a key structural protein that provides your skin with its youthful firmness and elasticity. As we age, our natural collagen production declines, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. RF microneedling stimulates collagen production within the deeper layers of your skin, resulting in a firmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance. 

How does Morphesu8 RF microneedling differ from other non-surgical skin tightening treatments?                                                                RF microneedling uses radiofrequency energy combined with microneedling while other forms may only use ultrasound or heat energy. This combination makes RF microneedling more effective at treating skin tightening in addition to treating a wide range of concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. 

Can RF microneedling be combined with other treatments?                                                                                                                                   Yes, RF microneedling can be combined with other aesthetic treatments to enhance your results. Some commonly used combinations include microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or laser resurfacing. During your consultation, we will discuss the best treatment options for your individual needs and goals.
