A microneedling treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production for tighter skin.
Microneedling, referred to as collagen induction therapy, stands as a superb approach to stimulate cellular turnover and rejuvenation. This technique capitalizes on your skin's innate healing prowess. Through the creation of minuscule, shallow micro-injuries using fine needles, we ignite your body's production of collagen and elastin.
The aftermath of microneedling triggers a healing process known as cell remodeling, fostering smoother, more youthful skin without resorting to surgery or leaving scars. Integration with radiofrequency technology further enhances the treatment's impact by tightening the skin from the outermost layers.
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling uses tiny needles that penetrate deeper layers of skin to revitalise collagen and elastin production, creating renewed, tighter, firmer skin that's also more even-textured and even-toned.
Two different needle lengths make this treatment customizable for the face or body, allowing the treatment to reach and renew deeper layers of skin and tissue. Radiofrequency makes this treatment effective and safe for skin with acne scarring.
The winning combination of radiofrequency and microneedling makes this treatment effective for a variety of skin concerns.
On the face, it combats wrinkles, crepey skin, enlarged pores, rosacea, and acne scarring. It doesn't just tighten—it also improves complexion issues like texture and tone. On the body, it addresses skin laxity and crepiness, stretch marks, and even scars.
RF Microneedling works on all skin types and tones, has minimal downtime, and can also be paired with other treatments to achieve next-level results.

Microneedling is an in-office treatment. After cleaning your skin and applying a topical anesthetic, we guide the microneedling device across your face to create numerous micro-channels in the surface of the skin. At the same time, the RF energy penetrates the dermis, heating it to encourage tissue tightening and collagen growth.
Following your appointment, you'll notice your skin appearing slightly reddened, akin to a mild sunburn. Depending on your skin's sensitivity, you may also encounter minor swelling or bruising, typically subsiding within the initial two to three days post-treatment.
In the week following your microneedling session, it's crucial to maintain diligent sunscreen use, along with a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. During the phase of cellular turnover, your skin might feel tight, dry, and flaky as it sheds old, damaged cells, revealing a rejuvenated complexion. Keeping your skin adequately moisturized during this healing period is essential.
Several weeks after your initial treatment, you'll begin to notice a smoother, more radiant appearance. However, your results will continue to enhance over the ensuing months following your RF microneedling procedure, courtesy of the ongoing boost in collagen production.
Talk with one of our expert providers to ask questions and determine what treatment is right for you.
If you wear makeup to your appointment, we'll need to remove it before your treatment.
Avoid Retinol, active ingredients, and at-home peels for at least 7 days prior to your treatment.
Avoid Botox or filler treatments, or resurfacing for at least 2 weeks prior.
If you've been sunburned recently, it's best to wait 3 weeks to a month before this treatment.
We do not recommend receiving this treatment a few days before an event, since you may experience some redness and flaking.
Try not to apply makeup 1-2 days after your service.
Avoid acids, Retinols, harsh scrubs, and exfoliants until you're fully healed, about 5-10 days after treatment.
Avoid products and sun exposure for the first couple of days after your treatment. Integrate sun care into your routine to maintain results.
You’ll likely experience noticeable redness, and possibly swelling, afterwards. A cool compress or cooling masque will alleviate the swelling quicker.
Avoid working out (anything where you break a sweat) for 1-2 days post-treatment.
How Is This Different From Regular Microneedling?
This technology provides deep-dermal rejuvenation with targeted radiofrequency to reach deeper layers of the skin. The needles used in Morpheus8 are thinner than those traditionally used in microneedling and are also able to go deeper (up to 4mm)—so we're able to customize your treatment by going as deep as your skin can tolerate. The deeper the needles go, the more collagen can be stimulated. The end result gives a much tighter and youthful appearance.
What Is the Benefit of Radiofrequency Energy?
Radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize collagen. It works to improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
When Will I See Results?
You'll see brighter skin right away, with more visible results appearing within a few days. At around 3 weeks you'll start to enjoy the most noticeable results, and around 3 months, you'll reap the full rewards.
Does it hurt?
It's not the most comfortable treatment however, we do as much as we can to help with pain management by applying a topical anesthetic pre-treatment and providing you with self-administered Pronox during the treatment.
Can I Go Back to Work Immediately Afterwards?
Our advice? Don't plan on it. While technically you could, you may experience noticeable redness, swelling, or raised bumps which should disappear in 1-2 days.
How Often Should I Get This Service?
We recommend 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart. Depending on your concern, you may need a couple more treatments to see desired results. Once your initial round of treatment is complete, we recommend a once-a-year service to maintain results.
Can I Wear Makeup After My Treatment?
For best results, we recommend avoiding makeup for 1 to 2 days after the treatment. You should expect to appear blushed a few days after your appointment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on your treatment.
RF Micro-needling is a relatively new type of skin rejuvenation treatment. It is also referred to as Fractional Radio-Frequency Micro Needling; this type of treatment combines the benefits of Micro-needling with the collagen boosting effects for the thermal effects of Radio Frequency energy. The treatment consists in inserting micro needles into the skin distanced a few mm between each other and delivering Radio Frequency energy into the skin for a few milliseconds.
→ The duration and intensity of the radio frequency energy can be varied by the aesthetic practitioner by changing the settings of the device.
→ Also the depth of the needles insertion inside the skin is varied by the aesthetic practitioner according to the type of treatment and the area treated.
→ The micro needles which usually gold plated.
Results vary from person to person. Each person is unique, and their treatment plan will be tailored to their individual requirements according to skin type, lifestyle, and other factors to create an individualized plan that will provide the best aesthetic treatment results possible.
How RF Micro-needling Works.
RF Micro-needling uses very tiny micro-needles to deliver safe radio frequency energy into the deep layers of the skin where collagen and elastin fibres support the skin structure. The polarity of the energy emitted creates arcs of energy between the micro-needles and around them , delivering energy inside the skin.
What does Radio Frequency mean and why is it used?
Radio frequency is a term used to make you aware that the needling has a thermal effect. Radio frequency (in the region of MHz) has a thermal effect inside the skin. Namely most devices have an output frequency at the needle of 5 MHz. Therefore given the fact that 5 MHz is in the spectrum of the radio frequency the technology is referred to as micro-needling with Radio frequency.
The two types of RF Micro-needling. Gold Plated and Semi Insulated.
There are two types of RF Micro-needling:
→ One is the conventional micro-needling where the whole surface of the needles are conductors.
→ The second are the partial insulated needles. These have the conductive part only at the tip of the needles whereas the rest of the needle is insulated.
In case of the normal whole conductive gold plated needles, the thermal effect is distributed along side the whole depth of the individual needles.
In case the RFenergy is required to be distributed inside the deeper layers of the skin only, partially insulated needles are used instead. This is done in order to deliver the RF Frequency energy into the deeper layer only.
In the middle picture the normal non insulated micro-needle. In the right the insulated micro-needle.
This allows the energy to be propagated inside area where the needles are inserted an with minimal thermal effect alongside the insulated part of the needles and the This is shown in the picture above. Then there are other type of micro needles where only the tip of the needs are made of conductive material whereas the rest is a insulated
The schematic of the heat distribution inside the skin of partially insulated needles.
There are claims of better efficacy of the partially insulated needles . No studies corroborating the better efficacy of the partially insulated needles could be easily found. However the
RF Micro-Needling works to smooth out the acne scars that plague so many people by stimulating new collagen and elastin in the deep layers of the skin. This type of treatment generally promotes collagen regeneration and therefore it has a the following applications in Aesthetics:
→ Improving the appearance of atrophic scars. Like acne and Chickenpox scars. Pick scars may not resolve completely using this technique.
→ Generally it has a smoothing and a brightening skin rejuvenation effect.
→ General Skin tightening effects.Firms up the skin and tightens loose or sagging skin.
→ Improves the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Fine Lines & Small Thin Wrinkles (e.g., on upper lip, crows feet).
→ Stretch mark removal.
→ Treat sun damage. Correct pigmentation by promoting collagen regeneration.
→ Improves the appearance of red veins due to the thermal/coagulation effect of the radio frequency.
→ Improves the appearance of enlarged pores.
Advantages versus normal micro needling.
→ No or minimal bleeding. due to the thermal coagulation effect of the RF frequency.
→ Enhanced effects compared to normal micro-needling due to the RF frequency which boosts collagen stimulation.
→ Extra firming is collagen regeneration than standard micro-needling due to the thermal effect of the Radio frequency current.
→ Double micro needling effect and thermal skin rejuvenation effect.
How is RF micro-needing applied?
Numbing the area before the procedure.
Numbing product is usually EMLA or similar applied with or without occlusion. The numbing product is applied on the overall area to be treated usually the whole face. The product is left for a 45 minutes to allow to take effect.
In case the treatment is carried out by medical practitioners a stronger topical numbing product can be used which has a stronger and faster action than normal over-the-counter numbing products in Europe. These are medical grade numbing products which can be made for medical practitioners. for more information about these stronger products please click here.
Depth of the RF Micro Needling.
The depth of the micro-needling treatment is determined by a number of factors. The main factor which determines the depth of the RF micro needling treatment is the area of the body treated.
Outline of micro-needling depth and layer of the skin it affects.
The depth of the needling can vary from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm and certain devices allow even more depth of penetration.
The depth of penetration determines also the layer of the skin being treated.
Generally, the different areas of the body have different allowable micro-needling depths.
The following are general charts showing the normal depths used in different parts of the body. Certain devices can also help you in choosing the most appropriate depth for each particular type of treatment.
