If you’re concerned about crow’s feet, fine lines, or wrinkles, non-invasive skin tightening procedures like microneedling can help. With long-lasting results and no downtime, you can begin your fresh-faced makeover today.

RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. Using radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling, it stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin. It is commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Microneedling works by creating micro-injuries in the skin. These microscopic tears trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is virtually painless and requires no downtime.

The effects of Morpheus8 are gradual and can take up to six months to fully manifest. That means Spring is the ideal time to begin treatment for optimal results by summer.

If you have been delaying cosmetic procedures for fear of surgery or extended recovery time, Morpheus8 may be for you. Schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your cosmetic goals. Together you can determine if RF microneedling is the best option to help you achieve your desired results.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Ashpole is here to help. Reach out online or call to schedule your consultation at Ashpole Plastic Surgery today.
