The Science Behind Radiofrequency Microneedling
Radiofrequency and microneedling separately made their marks on the aesthetic world. Microneedling—also called collagen induction therapy—can help treat everything from acne scars to wrinkles. Radiofrequency became known for skin tightening and safe treatment of deeper levels of skin without causing damage to the surface
When combined, RF energy is a type of low level radiation that penetrates the skin and creates controlled damage to the inner layers of skin (and sometimes fat). In tandem, the microneedling addresses the surface and upper layers of skin to stimulate collagen production and healthier looking skin for ultimate skin rejuvenation.
The Morpheus8 cost is comparable to fractional skin resurfacing and is safer for darker skin tones. Microneedling radiofrequency treatment is ideal for any skin tone and most skin types.

Morpheus8 Treatment in Raleigh From Start To Finish
Morpheus8 Treatment Consultation in Raleigh
Before undergoing Morpheus8 treatment, you will meet with Dr. Jindal who will conduct a full evaluation of your skin.

RF Microneedling Session
The first step in Morpheus8 treatment is to cleanse the skin of any makeup or debris. Your provider will likely recommend that you come without makeup on the treatment areas. Then, numbing cream is applied and allowed to sit for at least ten to twenty minutes. With one last cleanse to remove the cream, your provider will then bring the Morpheus8 handpiece to the skin.
Carefully adjusting the device to fit your skin tone, skin type, and needs, your provider will then begin treatment. You may feel some slight stinging and warmth during the treatment, but it is generally minimal. Treating in sectioned straight lines, they will continue the treatment and potentially change the settings as needed.
Immediately after the treatment, your face may be red. Your provider may apply soothing products and sunscreen to protect your newly sensitive skin when you leave the office.

Frequently Asked Questions
RF microneedling is safe to use almost anywhere on the body. While it is effective at treating aging and skin concerns on the face, some patients may also choose to use it to treat stretch marks, body acne scars, and surgical scars. A few examples of body areas that Morpheus8 can treat include:
Morpheus8 treatment will involve numbing the skin beforehand to limit pain and discomfort. Without numbing, there is some pain and discomfort expected for most patients undergoing the best Morpheus8 Raleigh, NC provides. Due to its powerful skin rejuvenation and skin tightening qualities, microneedling radiofrequency treatment does cause some discomfort, but it is generally bearable for most patients.
The permanence of results from Morpheus8 depends on what you are treating. For example, if treating certain forms of scars, the results likely are permanent unless another scar is obtained. However, when treating aging, Morpheus8 cannot stop future aging. Therefore, the results are not permanent, but can help slow down the progression of aging.
If interested in more permanent results, there are several options such as a facelift and laser resurfacing. Procedures such as Facetite also provide much longer lasting results. Patients may also combine Morpheus8 RF microneedling with various other surgical and non-surgical procedures for the ideal outcome.
Initially, JIYA providers recommend a round of three microneedling radiofrequency treatments about four to six weeks apart. Depending on your skin tightening and skin rejuvenation goals, you may require up to ten Morpheus8 treatment sessions. After the first round of three to four treatments, patients often choose to undergo radiofrequency microneedling once or twice a year to help maintain skin quality and appearance.
