What is RF Microneedling?

We all desire to maintain a youthful appearance. What remains consistent among all, is we are faced with combatting the aging process that leaves its marks in fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume. These changes can leave us feeling uncertain in our own skin. Through the best of RF Microneedling, there is an option to address these issues. Morpheus 8 microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that improves the look, texture and tightness of the face and body.

Radio frequency microneedling is a procedure that combines the benefits of microneedling (collagen induction therapy) and radiofrequency. This is an advanced method of skin tightening and collagen production that is leading the industry when it comes to sculpting the face and body.

With multiple needle injection sites and the deliverance of RF energy, the microchannels of injury combined with uniform heating of the tissues, stimulate the body to begin producing collagen and elastin; two major components vital for the suppleness and tightness of our skin. The stimulation of collagen and elastin brings an improvement to the skin’s texture and quality.

RF microneedling is designed to treat fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars, wrinkles, stretchmarks, and skin laxity. When it comes to RF microneedling, MaVie has invested in the latest state-of-the-art device known as the Morpheus 8. The Morpheus allows for collagen growth and tissue tightening at predetermined depths within the skin.

Morpheus 8 (Microneedling with RF)

The Morpheus 8 is an FDA-approved Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device or SARD. This device combines the above components – microneedling and radiofrequency to address superficial and deep tissues of the face, neck and body. The Morpheus 8 Radiofrequency is known to stimulate and encourage collagen production in the skin through its microinjuries with microneedling. The energy used during RF treatment helps to remodel the skin and is safe and effective when it comes to achieving desired results.

What makes Morpheus 8 a leader in RF Microneedling? Unlike most devices, Morpheus 8 gives us the flexibility to completely tailor your treatment based on the results we are trying to achieve. While the device is used for skin tightening, it is also unique in its ability to penetrate deep enough to disrupt the adipose tissues or fat layer of the skin due to its complex design of combining both mechanical and thermal injury to the skin. With the ability to adjust the depth of penetration based on the type of results we are trying to achieve, you can expect greater results with Morpheus 8. Through a customized treatment plan at MaVie, we will determine with you, how many total sessions will be anticipated in order to achieve the results you are looking for.

Morpheus 8 is the perfect solution for you if you want to reduce:

• Acne or acne scars
• Poor skin texture
• Undesired adipose tissue/fat
• Deep lines and creases
• Mild sagging or jowls
• Enlarged pores
• Stretch marks

The Procedure

The innovative treatment of Morpheus 8 RF microneedling is performed in our state-of-art med spa where you can rest assure that safety, comfort and results are the number one priority. A topical anaesthetic is used prior to the start of your treatment. Cryogen cold air as well as Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) are available for those who desire additional comfort. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the area to be treated.

We ask that you come with a bare face for this treatment as topical anesthetic will be topically applied upon your arrival. A post-care regimen will be provided for you along with post-treatment instructions.

When you consult with us at MaVie’s, our medical professionals will thoroughly assess the area to be treated and discuss desired outcomes in order to determine how many sessions will get you there. For most, a series of three treatments, spaced about 6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

Recovery & Results

You might experience some redness, tenderness, mild swelling and occasionally bruising in the treated area. However, these are common side effects of microneedling with RF, and they will disappear over the next few days to weeks. It is normal to experience a sand paper like texture to the skin as cellular turnover occurs and this can be managed through the suggested regimen provided by our healthcare professionals at MaVie. Avoidance of direct sunlight and use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever you go out is important to prevent post-procedure hyperpigmentation. Makeup can be applied typically 24 hours post treatment. Specific instructions will be provided to you during your consultation and after treatment.

You will notice the first signs of improvement within a few days of treatment. After a few weeks you will notice even more improvement in your skin. The best results will be visible in two or three months, when collagen starts forming in the healing process. Maintenance treatments are recommended once a year.
