Morpheus 8: The New Non-Surgical Facelift Everyone is Talking About (Microneedling With RF)
You can’t run from aging, but you don’t have to stand still while it takes a toll on your appearance and confidence, either. Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment that tightens skin and smooths wrinkles without the downsides of surgery.

No matter how well you care for your skin, eventually, you notice some sagging and wrinkles. Many of those age-related changes are actually due to sun exposure, but other factors, like smoking, hormonal changes, illness, and even genetics, play roles, too.

While having a surgical facelift is one potential solution, it’s certainly not ideal for everyone. As a surgical procedure, facelifts have specific risks, with considerable downtime and a high price tag. Fortunately, many women and men achieve great results with a non-surgical alternative called Morpheus8®.

Patients in Woodland Hills, California, turn to Jeffrey Sherman, DC, NP, for innovative Morpheus8 treatment tailored to their needs and goals. Here’s how he can help you turn back the clock on facial aging.

The science behind Morpheus8

Sagging skin and wrinkles happen when our skin loses some of its natural collagen, a protein that forms a supportive network to help skin stay firm, smooth, and resilient when we’re young. We produce less collagen as we age, weakening our supportive network and leading to loose skin and wrinkles.

Morpheus8 combines two technologies — microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy — to combat the effects of aging and restore firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.


Microneedling uses a special device studded with tiny needles to create “controlled injuries” in your skin. These injuries trigger natural healing responses, including new, healthy collagen fibers to replace collagen lost to aging or other causes.

RF energy

Radiofrequency energy gently heats your skin, promoting healing changes while gently tightening your skin. Traditionally, RF energy gets applied through the surface of your skin. Morpheus8 delivers RF energy using those tiny microneedles, allowing energy to penetrate deeper layers where its effects increase.

While you can use microneedling and RF energy treatments individually, combining the two enables Morpheus8 to deliver more dramatic results that last longer.

Your Morpheus8 treatment

Morpheus8 treatment takes about a half hour (depending on the area or areas treated), and afterward, there’s no downtime. You have some redness and swelling initially, but these effects fade after a day or two. 

Best of all, there’s no downtime and no prolonged recovery period. Plus, because Morpheus8 is nonsurgical, you don’t have to worry about incisions, blood loss, or other surgery-related complications.

While your skin heals, you want to do all you can to avoid direct sun exposure since sun can irritate and damage skin that’s still sensitive to the effects of treatment. Sunscreen and moisturizers are essential, and so is gentle cleansing. We provide you with complete care instructions during your visit.

Because Morpheus8 achieves results through collagen formation, it can take a few weeks for results to appear. While you can certainly see improvements in your skin’s tone and texture with just one visit, most people benefit from a series of 1-3 treatments based several weeks apart.
