Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the skin. It can be used to fight signs of aging on the face, neck, and décolletage. This effective technology combines the proven benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Each of the tiny needles emit low-frequency electromagnetic waves to generate an electromagnetic field within the skin; this delivers controlled heat deep into the skin’s layers, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture and tone. [1] By harnessing the power of RF energy, Morpheus8 can deliver powerful skin rejuvenation results with minimal discomfort or downtime. So why settle for an ordinary beauty routine when you can experience the safe and transformative power of Morpheus8?

About Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is the beauty industry’s latest and greatest secret weapon against aging and sagging skin. This innovative treatment combines the power of microneedling with the benefits of radiofrequency technology to deliver transformative results.

Next Level Microneedling

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment involving tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. While this may sound intimidating, the process is quite gentle and minimally invasive, making it a safe and effective option for many people.

One of the primary benefits of microneedling is its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production, two essential proteins for healthy, youthful-looking skin. By creating controlled micro-injuries, microneedling triggers the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin. [2] This leads to improved skin texture and tone and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Microneedling is also a great option for those looking to improve the appearance of scars resulting from [3]

  • Acne
  • Surgery
  • Trauma
  • Viral infections
  • Hypertrophic or keloid scars

How Does Radiofrequency Energy Help the Skin?

Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin, heating the tissues and triggering the body’s natural healing response. Combining these two treatments leads to the tightening and rejuvenation of the skin, resulting in a youthful and radiant appearance.

By generating an electromagnetic field, Morpheus8 delivers controlled heat to the dermis, promoting neocollagenesis, elastin formation, and angiogenesis in the skin’s healing process; this process helps to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which improve skin elasticity, firmness, and overall texture. Additionally, angiogenesis promotes the growth of new blood vessels, which can improve circulation and support the skin’s natural healing process. [4] 

The beauty of Morpheus8 is that it can be customized to suit your unique needs and goals. Whether you’re looking to target a specific area of your face or want to treat your entire complexion, this treatment can be tailored to your needs. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types, so virtually anyone can benefit from its amazing results.

So if you’re ready to say goodbye to sagging, tired-looking skin and hello to a fresh, glowing complexion, Morpheus8 is the answer you’ve been looking for. Contact us today to learn more about this innovative treatment and how it can help you achieve the youthful, vibrant appearance you deserve.

What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?

The benefits of Morpheus8 are numerous and wide-ranging, making it a popular choice among those seeking a safe and effective way to rejuvenate their skin.

Improve Texture and Tone

First and foremost, Morpheus8 can dramatically improve the texture and tone of your skin. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, this treatment helps to restore firmness and elasticity to your skin, resulting in a smoother, more even complexion.

Make Fine Lines & Wrinkles a Thing of the Past

Another major benefit of Morpheus8 is its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Whether you’re dealing with

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Smile lines

this treatment can help soften and smooth them out, giving you a more youthful-looking appearance.

A Next-Level Scar Solution

Morpheus8 is also an effective solution for treating acne and other scars. By stimulating the body’s natural healing process, this treatment can help to minimize the appearance of scars and improve the overall texture of your skin.

Fast Results

And let’s not forget about the immediate benefits of Morpheus8. Many people report seeing a noticeable improvement in their skin’s texture and tone after just one session, with optimal results typically achieved after a series of treatments.

A Versatile Skin Care Solution

One of the biggest advantages of Morpheus8 is its versatility. This treatment can be customized to target specific areas of your face or body, making it an ideal option for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin.


Who is the ideal candidate for Morpheus8? The answer is simple: anyone looking to improve the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity or sagging
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin texture or tone
  • Hyperpigmentation or age spots
  • Dull or lackluster skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Double chin or jowls

Whether in your 20s or 60s, Morpheus8 can help you achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion. It is particularly effective for those with deeper skin concerns that can’t be addressed with topical treatments or basic facials. It’s also an excellent option for those who want to avoid surgery or injectables but achieve significant skin tightening and smoothing.

Furthermore, you can return to your daily routine immediately after your session with little to no downtime.

Personal Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Bonillas, you can expect a personalized and attentive experience from start to finish. Here’s what you can expect during your Morpheus8 consultation:

Comprehensive Skin Assessment

Dr. Bonillas will thoroughly evaluate your skin concerns, type, texture, and overall health. This will help him determine whether Morpheus8 is the right treatment option for you and how to customize the treatment plan.

It’s essential to avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning products for at least two weeks before your Morpheus8 treatment. Sun damage can make your skin more sensitive and increase the risk of complications. 

Patients should also avoid certain medications; blood thinners or anti-inflammatory drugs can increase the risk of bleeding or bruising during and after the treatment.

Avoid topical treatments, such as retinoids or exfoliants, for at least one week before your Morpheus8 treatment. These products can increase skin sensitivity and interfere with the treatment’s efficacy.


To begin treatment, Dr. Bonillas will thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply a numbing cream to ensure comfort. Then, he will use a handheld device with tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in your skin, stimulating collagen as these micro-injuries heal. 

As the microneedling device moves across your skin, it also delivers RF energy to deeper layers of the skin. This energy heats the skin tissue, causing it to contract and stimulate further collagen production. The microneedles’ depth and RF energy level can be adjusted to customize the treatment to your specific skin concerns and goals.

Despite needles and RF energy, most patients find Morpheus8 to be a comfortable and well-tolerated experience thanks to the numbing cream and the device’s built-in cooling system. After the treatment, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for your skin and what to avoid in the days following the procedure.


After undergoing Morpheus8, taking good care of your skin is important to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your Morpheus8 recovery:

  • In the days following your Morpheus8 treatment, it’s important to avoid strenuous activities that could cause sweating or irritation to your skin. Instead, try to relax and take it easy as much as possible.
  • While it’s important not to scrub or exfoliate your skin in the days after your Morpheus8 treatment, you should still keep your skin clean to prevent infection. Use gentle cleansers and avoid any harsh chemicals or fragrances that could irritate your skin.
  • After your Morpheus8 treatment, your skin may feel dry or tight. Applying a moisturizer can help soothe your skin and keep it hydrated.
  • In the weeks following your Morpheus8 treatment, protecting your skin from the sun is important to prevent further damage. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and use broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Overall, the recovery after Morpheus8 is relatively quick and easy. Most patients experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising that subside within a few days. By following these simple tips, you can ensure a smooth and successful recovery from your Morpheus8 treatment.

What are the Results of Morpheus8?

Patients can expect smoother skin after treatment, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections, leaving their skin looking and feeling more radiant. Additionally, by stimulating collagen production, Morpheus8 can help improve the skin’s overall tone and texture, leaving it firmer and more youthful-looking.

Whether you have pitted scars or discoloration, Morpheus8 can help minimize the appearance of acne scars, leaving you with clearer, smoother skin.

The results of Morpheus8 are long-lasting and can continue to improve over time. As new collagen forms in the skin, you’ll notice continued skin texture and tone improvements for several months after the procedure. A series of treatments is recommended for most patients to achieve optimal results, but many see improvements after just one session.
