RF Microneedling in Cincinnati, Ohio
A Solution for Uneven Skin Tone, Texture, Fine Lines, and Scarring.
Microneedling with radio frequency (RF) is the latest and greatest generation of microneedling. Regular microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy, or CIT) is the concept of using tiny needles to penetrate the skin, creating tiny channels that the body heals by laying down new collagen. RF Microneedling in Cincinnati adds radio frequency-generated heat to the skin, which allows the treatment to tighten the skin and contour undesired fat.
Minimally Invasive Skin and Tissue Remodeling.
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an advanced fractional radio frequency microneedling device that takes the improvement in superficial skin quality from microneedling and adds the deeper skin-tightening and fat/adipose remodeling benefits of RF therapy.
Morpheus8 is revolutionary because it treats deeper than most microneedling devices and it’s FDA cleared as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, or SARD. This means that Morpheus treats more than just the skin–by directing energy into the tissue below the skin, difficult to treat areas like fatty necks and jowls can be contoured non-surgically.

- Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne scars or chicken pox scars
Poor skin texture
Deep lines and creases

Treatments take approximately 20 minutes after numbing, total time in the office is about 1 hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Mild/moderate redness for 1-2 days (rarely up to 1 week)
How does RF Microneedling with Morpheus8 work?
Morpheus8 combines radio frequency technology, microneedling, and fractional treatments to address a variety of skincare problems. Tiny needles penetrate the skin and heat the tissue to stimulate the production of collagen. What makes Morpheus8 different from other microneedling treatments is the depth the needles penetrate the skin. It is the only treatment that can mold fat under the skin to achieve optimal results. Contouring and refining the subdermal layers will enable a more detailed approach to sculpt the face naturally.
Morpheus8 can be combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for optimal results!
Process & Results
Your complimentary Morpheus8 consultation will begin with an in-depth skin assessment. We will discuss your individual aesthetic goals and budget. Next, our aesthetic team will carefully explain all of your treatment options, including Morpheus8, answering questions that arise along the way. We will discuss the process, expectations, recovery and any potential side effects of the procedures that are a right fit for you. Finally, if we determine RF Microneedling in Cincinnati to be the right technique for your needs, we will create a customized treatment plan based on your desired results. We take pictures to document your transformation. We will also discuss the cost of treatment and all of your payment options.
On the day of the procedure, we will apply topical numbing cream to the treatment area.
Besides topical numbing cream, we also offer patients ProNox®. This is a self-delivery nitrous oxide system that significantly assists with any discomfort or anxiety you may feel. The gas is completely out of your system after 10 minutes so you can safely drive and resume your normal activities after ProNox® use.
Treat the Skin
We apply the Morpheus8 device systematically to the treatment area. Patients report a warming sensation against the skin with the radio frequency and some mild discomfort because of the micro needles, but overall the procedure is well tolerated. The treatment itself is quick – about 20 minutes or less depending on the body part being treated.
After the Morpheus8 treatment is complete, you will leave our office after 10 min (when the nitrous oxide gas has left your system). We will give you post-procedure instructions. You can apply makeup the following day. Most patients only experience mild redness for 1-2 days after the procedure. Your next Morpheus8 session will also be scheduled, if indicated. We will also discuss a maintenance skin care regimen to protect your aesthetic investment.
Patients can see visible results within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
