Have you ever caught yourself looking in the mirror, noticing a few changes in your skin and wondering, “When did that happen?” Well, let’s chat about it. As we age, our bodies change. Our skin is no exception! Fortunately, U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics offers state-of-the-art Morpheus8 treatment.

What Happens To Our Skin As We Age?

Back in our teen days, it was all about that fresh, bouncy feel. Fast forward a few years (or maybe more than a few), and our skin starts showing signs of our adventures and life. Wrinkles are just laugh lines from all those good times, and age spots are souvenirs from sunny beach days. 

It’s all part of the ride! As time passes, the collagen and elastin chill out a bit, making our skin feel different, and the skin becomes a little more susceptible to discoloration, wrinkles, and skin laxity. But here’s the thing: every change tells a story, a story of experiences, memories, and life lived fully, and you shouldn’t be upset about them.

What Is Morpheus8?

At U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics, we encourage people to be confident in their skin. At the same time, we understand that some would feel more comfortable in their bodies if they made a few changes. And we’re happy to help!

For patients who would like to erase some of the appearance of aging, we proudly present Morpheus8! Morpheus8 is the superstar of skin treatments, blending the magic of microneedling with the transformative power of radiofrequency energy.

The whole idea behind Morpheus8 is to give your skin a little reset. It boosts collagen, which is all about that youthful bounce, to create a radiant glow that has heads turning and friends asking for your secret. What makes Morpheus8 the talk of the town is its gentle approach. It’s minimally invasive, meaning you get all the benefits without the big “ouch.” And the best part? It’s a one-size-fits-all kind of deal, being super friendly with all skin types, from porcelain fair to beautifully bronzed. It can also be used on almost any part of the body!

What Are The Benefits?

There are so many! This treatment option, whose namesake is linked to Morpheus, the Greek god of dreams, can make your skin dreams a stunning reality. Let’s check out some of the ways Morpheus8 can benefit you.

  • Youthful Vibes: Morpheus8 is like a time machine for your skin. It boosts collagen production, which means fewer wrinkles and more of that youthful bounce we all adore.
  • Smooth Operator: Got scars or texture issues? Morpheus8 smooths things out, giving you that silky, magazine-cover feel.
  • Glow Up: This treatment is your ticket if you’re after that radiant, just-got-back-from-vacation glow. It revitalizes and refreshes, making your skin look lit from within.
  • Tighten Up: Loose skin? Morpheus8 tightens and firms so that you can say goodbye to sagging and hello to firm, taut skin.


How Does It Work?

Morpheus8 combines two powerful skincare techniques: microneedling and radiofrequency energy. The process starts with microneedling, where tiny needles create micro-injuries in the skin. This action alone stimulates collagen production, a natural protein that keeps our skin firm and youthful.

But Morpheus8 takes it a step further. As these needles penetrate the skin, they also deliver radiofrequency energy. This energy produces controlled heat, targeting deeper layers of the skin. The heat further enhances collagen production and tightens the underlying tissues.

The result is improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and a firmer skin appearance. By merging microneedling with radiofrequency energy, Morpheus8 offers a deeper, more effective treatment than many traditional methods, addressing both the skin’s surface and its underlying structure.

What Is The Procedure Like?

Let’s look at what a treatment session might look like for you.

  • Skin is cleansed and numbed. Once you are numb, Dr. Tag applies the Morpheus8 to the areas of concern with microneedles.
  • Your skin might feel warm from the radiofrequency waves as the needles work.
  • Each session only takes about thirty minutes to an hour! 

After treatment, you might experience some redness and swelling, but this is normal and to be expected.

We recommend three to five spaced-out sessions for the best, longest-lasting results. Think of it as trying to lighten your hair color. If you have dark brown hair and want to go blond, your hairstylist cannot safely do that in one day. You will have to change your hair over a series of spaced-out appointments to protect the health of your hair. The number of appointments would depend on how drastic the change is. It’s the same for improving your skin with Morpheus8!

How Dr. Tag Elevated The Experience

Dr. Tag begins the procedure by applying a numbing cream, followed by strategically placed surgical blocks to ensure the face is entirely numb. This allows him to be as aggressive as necessary, given that patients don’t feel any discomfort. Typically, the more intense the skin treatment, the more profound and long-lasting the results. This method is known as Dr. Tag’s “Surgical Morpheus Blocks and Results” approach.

Morpheus8 offers a range of settings. Many nurse practitioners and nurses aren’t trained to utilize the higher settings, as surgical blocks are required to facilitate these advanced treatments. While the lower settings yield results slightly better than standard microneedling – a service we also offer – achieving the best outcomes necessitates pushing the treatment to its optimal levels. 

Dr. Tag designed his approach with you in mind; he thought of all the little details so that you can have a medical experience that feels almost like a spa day.
