Refresh and rejuvenate the skin
We all want glowing, healthy-looking skin that is smooth, firm, and blemish-free. But with age comes lines, brown spots, and acne scars, making you wish you could turn back the clock and have a fresher, more rejuvenated appearance. The good news is you can renew your skin, and you won’t even need a single incision for it.
The board-certified dermatologists at Millburn Laser Center are skin experts, offering minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments that don’t just make your skin look better, but actually rebuild it from the inside out. Morpheus8 is one of their popular skin rejuvenating treatments at their Millburn, NJ skin care clinic.
What Does Morpheus8 Treat?
Morpheus8 is an excellent skin rejuvenating treatment option because it can achieve multiple corrections simultaneously. It is a safe and effective treatment for the following skin concerns:
- Deeper lines and facial creases
- Mild sagging or jowl formation along the jawline
- Uneven skin texture or tone
- Enlarged pores
- Active acne or shallow acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Skin texture issues
- Stretch marks
What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
Morpheus8’s fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy is scientifically proven to rebuild collagen and rejuvenate the skin to reduce wrinkles and improve its overall appearance.
It is a minimally-invasive procedure that utilizes a matrix of micro-needles to target the deeper skin layers with little to no discomfort. RF microneedling’s major advantage is its ability to keep the skin’s surface intact while RF energy is delivered to a customizable depth beneath the skin where collagen and elastin are produced.
Morpheus8 is FDA-cleared for subdermal adipose remodeling, which penetrates deeper into the dermal tissue and fat than other devices.
This feature allows for treatment of early jowl formation, as well as skin rejuvenation. Therefore, Morpheus8 is the first RF microneedling device that can contour the jawline, making it a valuable tool in any anti-aging skin regimen.
Furthermore, the precise energy delivery allows for better skin tightening, contouring, and wrinkle reduction while ensuring a comfortable patient experience.
What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
RF microneedling takes traditional microneedling to a new level by combining it with fractional RF energy to create an effective system for remodeling the skin.
RF microneedling treatments utilize microneedles that can deliver RF energy into deeper skin layers where treatment is most beneficial. This unique energy delivery and warming effect to the deep tissue allow for optimal results as the treatment promotes rapid cell generation without damaging the skin’s outer layers.

Alternatives to Morpheus8 Treatments
There are other skin resurfacing treatment modalities that produce optimal results. Examples include:
Laser treatments – these devices are designed to minimize lines, wrinkles, acne, acne scars, signs of sun damage, and other common skin concerns. The laser’s short pulses of high-intensity light remove the damaged skin’s top layer while promoting cell and collagen renewal, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin. Depending on the device used, lasers can precisely target scars, sun-damaged skin, skin laxity, and uneven tone and texture.
Chemical Peels – The acid in a chemical peel gently exfoliates the skin, effectively removing old skin cells, dirt, and debris off your face, revealing a fresher, brighter layer of skin. Over time, your skin remodels itself with new collagen and elastin — literally creating new skin from the inside out.
What to Expect from Your Morpheus8 Treatment
During a Morpheus8 skin tightening treatment at our skin care clinic, our board-certified dermatologists use a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation of both the microneedles and RF energy penetration.
After the topical numbing cream has desensitized the skin (approximately 30-60 mins after application), your provider will begin treatment using a small handheld device.
The applicator’s tip has several microneedles that are powered by RF energy. It will be placed against the skin for a few seconds while energy passes through the needles. The applicator is then lifted from the surface and placed onto the adjacent area, using a motion that is similar to a stamping technique.
The process is repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Morpheus8 safe?
A: Despite treatment depth, Morpheus8 is considered very safe when administered by an experienced, qualified provider. Our board-certified dermatologists have extensive experience using Morpheus8 and will use their expertise to customize your treatment, making it as safe and effective as possible.
Q: Does a Morpheus8 treatment hurt?
A: Although Morpheus8 uses a device with dozens of tiny needles, it is not usually painful. Any discomfort that is experienced during the treatment is often very tolerable. Our dermatologists also apply numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort during your session.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Morpheus8 results can take up to 3-6 months to fully develop. Once fully achieved, the results can last for many more months or even years. If you notice aging symptoms starting to appear once again, you can schedule touch-up treatments to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Side effects after a session will vary depending on the procedure’s depth. Most patients may notice some redness and swelling which could persist for a day or two. Deeper treatments might result in longer-lasting side effects. It is important to protect treated skin from direct sun exposure to prevent potential damage from occurring.
Q: How long is recovery?
A: While recovery time will vary based on the patient’s skin condition and treatment depth, there will likely be no significant downtime after a Morpheus8 session. Most patients return to their normal activities within 24-48 hours. You may experience mild swelling, redness, and tenderness for a few days, but these side effects should not keep you from your daily schedule.
Q: How many treatment sessions will I need?
A: Some patients may already see satisfactory results after a single treatment, while others may see better results after a series of sessions. The number of treatments will depend on several factors, including the severity of your skin issues and your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, your dermatologist will design a customized treatment plan that will meet your needs and produce the best possible results for you.
Q: Who is a good candidate for Morpheus8?
A: Morpheus8 is a good treatment option for patients who want to reverse aging symptoms or treat acne scarring. This procedure is appropriate for both men and women and is safe for nearly any skin tone. The best way to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Morpheus8 is to meet with a qualified board-certified dermatologist. Our team can recommend an appropriate course of treatment after evaluating your skin and needs.
