Morpheus8 (Microneedling with Radiofrequency)

Consultations offered at our three convenient locations in La Jolla, CA, Apple Valley, CA and Newport Beach, CA

Morpheus8 Palm Springs

Morpheus8 is a procedure that combines two proven techniques at skin resurfacing, microneedling and radiofrequency. The synergistic combination restores youthful radiance and contours to the skin and face.

Radiant Skin for All Ages

Oscar Wilde said, “everything in moderation.” This mantra especially applies to the sun. The sun provides essential nourishment with vitamin D, but too much sun exposure can sap our skin of its youthful vibrance. Photoaging means the negative effects of the sun on our skin. Sagging, dehydrated skin with uneven pigmentation is a common result of photoaging.

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved for subdermal adipose remodeling. This means the Morpheus8 targets your tissue beneath the outermost surface layer of the skin and initiates a process of rebuilding its underlying support structure.

Fuller Skin after Morpheus8

Morpheus8 spurs the body to reorganize itself by promoting new collagen and elastin growth. It accomplishes this natural skin rejuvenation by merging two proven treatments, fractional radiofrequency and microneedling, into a single technique. This union leverages our body’s natural healing ability to keep our skin fresh and taut. By combining two effective methods, Morpheus8 achieves a synergistic effect that produces meaningful and measurable results.[1]

What Do Collagen and Elastin Do?

Collagen and elastin are proteins essential for healthy skin. Collagen is the most widespread protein in the human body; it consists of 80% of our skin’s proteins and it’s essential at providing our skin with its firmness and volume. Elastin, predictably, gives our skin its natural elasticity and tightness. These proteins form the underlying structure of our skin. As we age or spend time in the sun, our collagen and elastin structures begin to deteriorate. As collagen and elastin fizzle, our skin loses its youthful luster. Our bodies need some help to rebuild our collagen and elastin structure. Morpheus8 supplies this boost our bodies need to begin remodeling our skin’s support structure.

Suitable Candidates

Candidates for Morpheus8 can fall into a few categories. Mature candidates have already experienced some of the undesirable effects of photoaging. Perhaps they have some sagging areas. Maybe their complexion has dulled with time and lost that sheen of youth. Morpheus8 also works great for younger patients who want to delay the effects of aging, sometimes called prejuvenation.

Whether you seek to rejuvenate your features or refresh your skin and prolong your luscious sheen, it’s important to hold realistic expectations. While Morpheus8 can achieve some remarkable results with skin resurfacing, please remember it’s not a social media filter. You can’t just airbrush a new complexion over your skin tone. During your consultation with Dr. Tehrani, make sure to go over your expectations for your treatments.

If you have darker skin, you might have been turned away from skin resurfacing treatments before. Now, you can rest assured because Morpheus8 will work on all skin types with very little risk of hyperpigmentation.

What Areas Does Morpheus8 Treat?

  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds (parentheses and marionette lines)
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Fine lines around cheeks and neck
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin laxity
  • Provides a non-surgical “lift” of the face
  • Any area of the body and face that needs skin tightening and can benefit from increased collagen and elastin

How Do I Prepare?

Morpheus8 is minimally invasive. Unlike other resurfacing procedures, Morpheus8 requires minimal preparation. You can continue with your regular beauty regime without much change at all. If you’d like to simplify your paperwork before you come into the office, Tehrani Plastic Surgery posts all patient forms online for your convenience.


Morpheus8 uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to achieve its restorative effects. The microneedling provides a time-tested means of resurfacing the outer layer of skin. Microneedling creates thousands of micro-wounds in the skin which initiates a process of removal for the expired, unnecessary skin cells and signals the body to begin healing the outer layer of skin. The result is a fresh, new skin on the outer layer (epidermis). 

Fractional radiofrequency treatments add thermal energy to the microneedling process to affect the layer beneath the outer layer and promote new production of elastin and collagen. 

Great Results

Morpheus8 for Men

Morpheus proves very effective at treating stretch marks and loose skin around different areas of the body. It’s a popular procedure to provide a non-surgical facelift, but it can also be used on areas around the body. Visible results should become apparent in the days following your procedure. Many patients may need more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results. Studies have shown the Morpheus8 can reliably tighten the skin, refresh the complexion and remodel tissue underneath the surface of the skin.[2] If you want a more first-hand look, please ask to view some before-and-after photos during your consultation. Any cosmetic surgeon or medical spa you consider should have a portfolio of before-and-after photos you can view. Never trust your skin to a specious provider that can’t produce verifiable certifications along with before-and-after photos. Preview your experience at Tehrani Plastic Surgery by browsing the rave reviews our customers have left for us.

What is Recovery Like?

Some minor swelling and bruising might result from Morpheus8 treatments. But these effects are mild and can be alleviated with just ice packs and over-the-counter medicine. It’s also possible that skin might feel a little tight after treatment, but this is to be expected and will resolve on its own within a day or two.
