Morpheus8

If you have loose or wrinkled skin, but don't want to undergo a surgical procedure, there are other options available.

Morpheus8 is a microneedling tool that incorporates radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and spur collagen production.

Dr. Bruce Hermann provides this skin rejuvenation treatment at North Texas Breast & Plastic Surgery Center in Denton, TX.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

This microneedling treatment involves the use of a dermapen that lightly pricks the skin to trigger a rejuvenating healing response in your skin. Its small needles emit radiofrequency energy to produce more dramatic results than conventional microneedling can provide. When the device is placed on the treatment area, the tiny needles reach the deeper levels of skin. This allows the radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and fat beneath the superficial layers of skin.

What sets Morpheus8 apart from traditional microneedling treatment is the use of radiofrequency energy. This encourages collagen production at the subdermal adipose level, a benefit that just can't be achieved with traditional microneedling treatments. Since Morpheus8 remodels collagen and coagulates adipose tissue, we can tighten hard-to-reach areas of the face and body.

What Skin Flaws Can Morpheus8 Treat?

Because Morpheus8 combines microneedling techniques and radiofrequency technology, we can treat a number of issues simultaneously:

  • Sagging jowls or neckline
  • Loose skin on the body
  • Extra fat under the chin
  • Under eye circles
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?

We can achieve excellent results on many areas of the body, including the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Knees
  • Arms
  • Abdomen

The Morpheus8 Treatment Process

For most patients, the entire treatment typically takes about one to two hours to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area.

This treatment is most often performed on patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s.
This treatment is most often performed on patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s.

Preparation

This minimally invasive treatment doesn't require the use of IV sedation or general anesthesia. To maintain your comfort, we will apply a topical numbing solution to the skin in the target treatment area.

Device Application

The microneedling device is typically passed over the skin one to three times. As the device moves over one patch of the treatment area, the tiny needles prick the skin and deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of skin, tissue, and fat. The device is then removed from the surface of the skin, and we move onto the next section of the treatment area to repeat this process.

Skin Tightening

During each passage, the device will deliver radiofrequency waves about 4 mm into the subdermal layer of the skin, heating the adipose tissue to encourage tightening and toning of the treatment area. Traditional microneedling devices go down 2mm, and the needles don't emit any heat that tightens the skin and produces more collagen.

Collagen Production

The radiofrequency energy will encourage the production of collagen. While this may not be immediately visible after the procedure, patients should start to notice its effects about three weeks later.

Completing Treatment

We will apply a healing ointment to the skin immediately after the procedure. It is important to avoid touching the skin after treatment because it can increase the risk of infection.

FAQ: Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

How Many Treatment Sessions Are Needed?

During your consultation at our Denton, TX, medical practice, serving Lewisville, Flower Mound, and surrounding areas, Dr. Hermann will determine how many Morpheus8 sessions are needed to produce the desired results. Most patients require between one to three sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.

When Will I See Results?

The results of Morpheus8 typically begin showing about three weeks after the procedure. Most patients notice visibly improved skin after six weeks, with outcomes continuing to improve for about three months.

How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?

The results of Morpheus8 treatment last about one year, so we typically recommend that patients undergo follow-up treatment once a year.

Does Morpheus8 Treatment Hurt?

This microneedling technique can cause some minor discomfort. However, we use a topical numbing solution at our medical office to make the procedure more comfortable for our patients.

What Are the Side Effects of Morpheus8?

The side effects of Morpheus8 include redness and swelling. Fortunately, these side effects are short-lived and typically fade within a day of treatment.

When Can I Resume My Skin Care Routine?

Wait at least 12 to 24 hours before touching your face or resuming your skin care routine. You can then begin to apply lotion, make-up, and other skin care products to the face.

Choosing a surgeon can be scary but let me help. Dr. Hermann is an amazing surgeon and I HIGHLY recommend him. I had a breast lift/augmentation and at 3 months post op I'm in awe of my body. I never thought I would feel this confident even after losing all my baby weight. The staff here is also incredible. They were always willing to help me with ANY questions or concerns through out the entire process. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hermann and his staff. Schedule a consult you wont be disappointed!!

Dr. Hermann is very caring and sensitive when dealing with plastic surgery issues. When you have skin cancers removed from your face, you certainly do not want to have it show. The issues were resolved and even though it has only been 1 1/2 weeks, the scar is barely noticed. He explained everything he was doing along the way and I was very comfortable with the entire procedure. The office staff are all friendly and caring. I will certainly use Dr. Hermann again should the need arise.

Complementary & Alternative Treatments

FaceTite

FaceTite Device

During the FaceTitle procedure, tiny incisions are made in the treatment area. Then, a small probe (also known as a cannula) is inserted into the incisions to remove small amounts of fat. At the same time, the probe emits radiofrequency energy to tighten and tone the skin.

FaceTite is a great complement because it removes excess fat and tightens the skin, while Morpheus8 addresses skin imperfections, tightens the skin, and encourages collagen production.

Body Tite Procedure

BodyTite

BodyTite is similar to FaceTite in that it removes fat and tightens the skin. The difference is that this approach is used on the body instead of the face. This treatment option can also be used to complement Morpheus8 and produce more dramatic body contouring results.

Injectables

We offer several dermal filler products from the JUVÉDERM® family of products, including JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC. Depending on your needs, these dermal fillers can fill out your cheeks, chin, and facial profile, or augment the lips and reduce the fine lines that extend from the lips. We also offer BOTOX® Cosmetic, which is FDA-approved to treat the vertical lines between the brows, horizontal lines that run across the forehead, and crows' feet. These options can be incorporated into your treatment plan or performed as an alternative to help you achieve the results you desire.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates the outer layers of skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, scars, poor skin texture, and large pores. While this treatment doesn't produce results that are as dramatic as the results of other treatments we offer, it can be performed monthly to keep your skin in great condition.

Facelift

We offer many minimally invasive options to improve the appearance of the face and body. But there does come a time when surgical procedures such as a facelift will achieve the best results. If Dr. Hermann determines that a facelift is the best option, he will develop a treatment plan to lift sagging jowls, reduce the appearance of creases between the nose and mouth, and address creases down the chin. After healing from a facelift is complete, patients can also undergo Morpheus8 treatment to address skin blemishes.

In addition to facelift surgery, we also offer eyelid surgery and brow lifts. If you are concerned about drooping or winkles in the upper third of the face, we may recommend one of these surgical procedures.

Ultrasound liposuction

Liposuction

While Morpheus8 and FaceTite provide excellent skin contouring results for the face, patients tend to have larger amounts of excess fat on the body. Liposuction is the most effective way to contour the body and achieve the contours you desire. If patients have small amounts of loose skin, Morpheus8 can be performed after liposuction to further enhance cosmetic results.

Skin Tightening for the Body

Morpheus8 offers excellent skin tightening results for the right patient. But if you have experienced massive weight loss, frequent weight fluctuations, or pregnancy, you may have more significant stretching of the skin. In these cases, no amount of diet, exercise, or non-surgical skin tightening methods will fully address skin laxity. The only way to remove the excess skin is with surgery. We offer various skin tightening techniques, including tummy tuck, thigh lift, arm lift, and breast lift. During your consultation, Dr. Hermann will evaluate your areas of concern to determine if your needs can be adequately addressed with Morpheus8, or if a surgical procedure is needed to tighten the skin.

Best plastic surgeon! Dr. Herman has an artistic eye combined with his excellent surgical techniques. He and his staff graciously guided me in the decision making process. My 30 year old breast implants had to go, but do I replace or have a lift? After spending time discussing my options, I decided to replace, and gave Dr Herman cartel blanch on what size implants to use. I’m so glad I trusted his trained artistic eye! I am so pleased with the results! Thank you!
