What is RF Microneedling with Morpheus8™?
Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee and his aesthetic team utilize a special approach and the unique Morpheus8 by InMode technology to produce beautiful results for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have existed for a number of years and are well-known in the aesthetics industry for skin tightening and enhanced collagen production. This specific sort of therapy uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. This treatment can be used in conjunction with microneedling to maximize the results. At Nuveau Plastic Surgery, we frequently add this new advancement into our Houston, TX patients' skin treatments to produce firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
As the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD), Morpheus8 offers exceptional results for tighter, smoother skin. The Morpheus8 also provides the deepest fractional remodeling, allowing Dr. Lee and his team to penetrate and treat the deep layers of the skin and restore collagen production. Safe and effective for all skin types, this technology is a great option for the tightening of the face and areas of the body.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"Very welcoming place."- J.S. / Google / Sep 04, 2019
"The entire team at Nuveau is far superior than any other medical spa in Houston. I’ve had several facial treatments with Teta and my acne is non existent now. She’s a pro at removing whiteheads. Anywhere else I’ve had a facial, I always break out, but never with teta because she sanitizes everything and knows exactly how to extract. She’s very gentle and leaves my skin glowing.Dr Lee is amazing!! He has done two small procedures for me and the areas looks perfect. Randy is great too, extremely knowledgeable about cool sculpting and laser treatments for stretch marks."- N.J. / Yelp / Mar 12, 2021

Ideal Candidates For RF Microneedling
If you are 40 years of age or older and are beginning to notice age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin flaws (which can come with age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling might be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent choice if you want to:
- Tighten your skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Boost skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Fix skin irregularities, such as discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Treat acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more glowing look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses an instrument (with tiny needles on the end) that is rolled gently around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction therapy. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. While this procedure is commonly performed on its own, combining this innovative technique with radiofrequency microneedling technologies has allowed us to maximize the outcomes for our Houston, TX patients.
This approach is quite easy. The Morpheus8 applicator, which emits radiofrequency energy, works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of sterilized, golden microneedles. The energy is delivered via the needles, which simultaneously punctures your skin and circles back the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits.
What to Expect
RF microneedling procedures with Morpheus8 will take place in the Nuveau Plastic Surgery facility with the use of numbing cream to help reduce any discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will slide across the treatment areas, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. You can anticipate tiny, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally shed when the underlying micro-injury has healed. Results become noticeable as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks following a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally necessitate 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
Plan Your Procedure
If you're wanting to minimize the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin, as well as reduce acne scars, wrinkles, or laxity, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 is a wonderful remedy with proven results. Mixing radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling, this exceptional skin repair process has increased in popularity and is a minimally invasive, highly sought-after treatment for our Houston, TX patients.
