Houston, TX triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz offers an exceptional approach that produces beautiful results for our patients with a treatment called Morpheus8. This cutting-edge technology is a fractional skin rejuvenation technique that uses radiofrequency energy and microneedling to tighten and firm your skin.
This specific type of treatment utilizes heat to promote the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. Using Morpheus8, patients achieve stunning results and improved facial appearances without invasive procedures or extended recoveries. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about this one-of-a-kind treatment.
Before your procedure begins, we will clean your skin and apply topical anesthesia. This will help numb your skin so that you feel comfortable throughout the treatment. Once your skin is numb and you are ready, your procedure will begin. The method is quite straightforward. The Morpheus8 handheld device, which emits radiofrequency energy, is rolled carefully against the skin, puncturing the skin and creating micro-injuries that "disrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. New skin forms as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and refreshed.
What to Expect
Immediately following your treatment, your skin may be red and tender to the touch. These symptoms will subside quickly as your skin heals. In the days following, your skin should be kept sufficiently moisturized and protected from the sun. Our team recommends the use of facial sunscreen every day to protect your treated skin from future damage. Additionally, patients should refrain from the use of makeup for approximately two days after treatment. You should notice beautiful results around three weeks after your procedure.
Does it hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is put on the skin, most patients experience minimal pain during the procedure. During the treatment, we will check in to ensure you're comfortable. After the anesthetic wears off, you might feel a little discomfort briefly while your skin is healing itself.
Can I combine Morpheus8 with other treatments?
Although it can deliver amazing outcomes on its own, you might think about combining it with a second procedure for greater improvements. During your initial consult, our team will listen to all your concerns and goals about your skin before suggesting the combination of Morpheus8 with other additional treatments.
Who is an ideal candidate for Morpheus8?
