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

"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

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. We invite you to call Nuveau Plastic Surgery to discover more.
