Aging skin in the face, neck and other areas of the body is a common aesthetic complaint. Skincare products and make-ups may only mask the issue, and sometimes even do not help at all.

This specific treatment targets the deeper layers of skin in the desired treatment areas to remodel and rebuild collagen in order to achieve a youthful and radiant skin appearance.

Our surgeons are amongst the first physicians to introduce Morpheus8 in Scottsdale, Gilbert, and Phoenix. Not only are they some of the first in the area, they also have a considerable amount experience administering this minimally-invasive treatment. Through this modern technology, our surgeons have helped countless men and women in the region achieve their goals without the downsides of surgery.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin by stimulating and restructuring underlying fat and tissue. You may be an ideal candidate for this treatment if:

  • You are in good general health
  • You have stretch marks, sagging skin, sun damage, fine lines, or wrinkles
  • You prefer a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation
  • You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this procedure

It is important to note that Morpheus8 can only reverse mild forms of skin sagging, wrinkles, jowls, and other signs of aging. Common treatment areas include the face and neck. However, this technology can be applied to resurface skin in any part of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and legs. During your office visit to Tessler Plastic Surgery, the surgeon and his team will discuss your concerns and evaluate your problem areas to let you know whether Morpheus8 would be perfect for you. Patients with severe aesthetic issues and signs of aging may be better suited for a surgical treatment, and our surgeons will counsel you on the best options to achieve your desired outcome.


Skin Issues Morpheus8 Addresses

Morpheus8 is used to address a wide variety of skin imperfections, including but not limited to:

  • Loose or sagging skin on the face, neck, jawline, or other parts of the body
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles or fine lines
  • Acne scarring
  • Sagging or wrinkling under the eyes
  • Skin discolorations



Morpheus8 is a fractional radiofrequency device that supports programmable penetration depth. It works by using very tiny, specially coated needles to penetrate both the dermal and subdermal layers in the target areas, similar to microneedling. The depth of this is carefully controlled by the surgeon to ensure safety and maximal results. Once the coated needles penetrate the skin, the Morpheus8 device will deliver energy using radiofrequency at the needle tip, coagulating fat and contracting the connective tissue. This triggers tightening and rejuvenation of the skin in the treatment area through the body’s natural responses. New collagen and elastin (the skin’s building blocks) are produced, resulting in a renewed youthful look. The very fine size of the needles and topical numbing that is used ahead of time allows this treatment to be administered without any significant discomfort. One of the best things about Morpheus8 treatment is that it delivers uniform results on all skin types without resulting in thermal damage.

What is a Morpheus8 Treatment Like?

Before your Morpheus8 treatment session, our surgeons will review your medical history to ensure that you are a suitable candidate. Your treatment areas will also be examined to detail the depth and specific protocol of treatment. You may be asked to avoid certain medications before or after the treatment, such as blood thinners. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas to reduce any discomfort. The surgeon then uses the InMode Morpheus8 device to administer treatment. There are different applicator tips with 24 or 40 coated needles, depending on which area is being treated. The surgeon will set the energy level and depth of treatment and usually complete two passes over the treatment area. The treatment is very safe and only causes minimal discomfort and downtime. The treatment can usually be completed in about 30 minutes. Subsequent treatment sessions may be required to attain your personal objectives, and usually a series of 3 treatments is recommended in most areas for maximal effect. In some cases, patients combine this treatment method with other minimally-invasive techniques such as dermal fillers, fat grafting or other skin tightening treatments (BodyTite/FaceTite)

Recovery After Morpheus8 Treatment

Following your Morpheus8 skin resurfacing treatment in Phoenix AZ, you will be asked to apply the aftercare skin ointment twice a day to keep the skin moisturized and then hold off on any makeup to the treatment area for 72 hours. This is important in order to prevent an infection. Specific post-operative care instructions will also be provided so you can ensure a speedy recovery and an excellent outcome. Your skin may feel a bit tight right after the treatment has been completed. Mild swelling, bruising, and redness are also common following Morpheus8 treatment. However, these side effects dissipate within a few days. Most patients are able to return to work and routine tasks immediately after this treatment, so there’s hardly any downtime.

Results of Morpheus8 Skin Tightening

Many patients notice that their face looks a lot better right after the treatment. As the recovery process carries on, collagen tightens and improvements become more noticeable over the next few days. Your face will appear lifted with volume added to lax areas. Skin complexion also improves significantly after this treatment. After about 6 weeks post-treatment, the final results of this procedure should have settled in.
