Morpheus8 in Santa Barbara, CA
As the skin ages, it loses youthful collagen, becomes thinner, and develops wrinkles. While surgical treatments like a facelift can be highly effective for smoothing wrinkles and addressing skin laxity, some patients want to avoid surgical treatments. Morpheus8 is a powerful non-surgical option for skin rejuvenation. The technology combines two powerful skin treatments, microneedling and radiofrequency, to address aging without surgery. And it isn’t just for the face; Morpheus8 can be used on any area of the body where you want to tighten and smooth the skin.

What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines two powerful aesthetic treatments to transform the skin without surgery, combining radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling technology. RF energy is delivered through the microneedles, allowing it to penetrate deep within the skin and delivering healing energy to the skin’s underlying tissues.
Morpheus8 can address a wide variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, uneven skin tone and texture, large pore size, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Due to its popularity in facial rejuvenation, many people consider Morpheus a facial treatment, but it can also be performed on other areas of the body. Morpheus8 can be safely performed on almost any area of the body from head to toe.

What to Expect from Your Morpheus Skin Tightening Treatment
Morpheus8 treatment is an outpatient procedure. The treatment itself is quick, often requiring just 15-60 minutes. Additional time may be needed to meet with Dr. Yegiyants or apply topical numbing cream before treatment.
If you’ve received a microneedling treatment, Morpheus8 is a similar treatment process. The specialized device uses tiny microneedles to penetrate the skin. RF energy is delivered to the skin through these microneedles.
After your treatment, you can return to work and other activities immediately.
Recovery After Morpheus8
Most patients recover quickly and need no downtime after their treatment. You can return to work and other activities immediately. Many patients experience temporary skin redness, itching, or swelling. These post-treatment effects fade quickly and are often resolved within a few days.
Dr. Yegiyants will teach you how to care for your skin after Morpheus8 in Santa Barbara, CA. As you heal, you must protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. After microneedling, the skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun and prone to hyperpigmentation. Limiting sun exposure and using sunscreen daily can protect the skin as it heals.
