What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical advanced microneedling treatment. When we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity, with wrinkles, lines, and sagging appearing. Using radiofrequency, a Morpheus8 treatment stimulates collagen production to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body. Morpheus8 comfortably penetrates the skin at a deeper level than other microneedling treatments, transforming your complexion and restoring more youthful facial skin.

How Does 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 than other New York microneedling treatments is the depth the needles penetrate the skin. It is the only treatment that can mold fat under the skin to obtain optimal results. Contouring and refining the subdermal layers will enable a more detailed approach to sculpt the face naturally.

What Areas Can be Treated?

Morpheus8 is versatile. It can be used on any area of the body that can benefit from collagen renewal. The most common areas include the lower face and neck. Areas with challenges such as acne scarring or discoloration can also be treated with Morpheus8.

Who is a Candidate for Morpheus8?

If you are looking to reduce the signs of aging and are not ready to undergo a more invasive treatment, Morpheus8 might be right for you. Most healthy men and women are good candidates for Morpheus8. One of the top 3 providers of Morpheus8 in the Eastern United States, Dr. Rapaport can perform this treatment on any patient he believes are good candidates. If you are under 18 years of age, you will need parent consent. Those who are looking to smooth lines and creases, improve uneven texture and minimize sun damage could benefit from Morpheus8. This treatment is often performed in conjunction with liposuction and body/face/necktite to achieve optimal skin tightening with other contouring procedures.

How Long Does the Morpheus8 Treatment Take?

The length of the treatment can depend on the individual’s needs. Typically, you will only need 30 to 60 minutes to complete the process.

Is it Painful?

Morpheus8 is performed in Dr. Rapaport’s office in New York. The procedure is relatively painless even with the deeper penetration of needles. The needles used are very sharp and fine, allowing the benefit of puncturing your skin without the feeling of any tugging or pulling. To ensure your comfort, a topical cream will be applied to the treatment area. When the procedure begins, you might feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth as the needles pass over your skin. The advanced technology of Morpheus8 provides controlled and consistent heat delivery allowing for uniform treatment and results.

What is Recovery Like After Treatment?

Morpheus8 is a non-invasive procedure so there really will not be any need for downtime or recovery. Most people return to work the day after their treatment. Post-treatment, you may see a bit of pinpoint bleeding from the microneedles. This should only last for a few minutes. Your skin will be red and feel hot like it is a bit sunburned for up to one week. Swelling around the treated areas is also a minor concern but should be resolved within a day or two. A good moisturizer and a broad-spectrum sunscreen are recommended.

How Quickly Will I See Results from a Morpheus8 Treatment?

Noticeable results can be seen within a few days after treatment. Your skin will continue to improve and be close to its best around three weeks. Improvements can continue up to three months post-treatment.

At Rapaport Plastic Surgery we remain focused on caring for our patients by providing safe, high-quality aesthetic medical services. After carefully assessing the current conditions surrounding the COVID health crisis, the New York Department of Health has determined that as of Monday, May 18th, 2020, we may see patients for in office appointments, but unfortunately, it remains against the law to provide treatments of any kind.

For the protection of our patients, we are moving to a “Minimum Contact” model of patient care from here forward. This requires that all patient care functions that can be managed without direct in office contact be done beforehand.

The safety of our patients and staff remains our top priority, so we are:

  • Implementing recommended protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in place to ensure the highest level of preparedness towards prevention against coronavirus (COVID-19). 
  • Ensuring we have necessary supplies, personal protective equipment, and appropriate staffing. 
  • Carefully screening patients and staff via questionnaire to be sure that ill or medically vulnerable patients and staff do not come to the office.   
  • Seeing patients virtually through our Nextech telemedicine system which can be accessed through any smart phone. We can perform many of the examination and evaluation methods you would otherwise receive in a face to face visit while keeping you home. 

If you have an upcoming appointment, we suggest that you do not call to cancel or postpone. We will communicate with you to determine the best way to provide you with ongoing care.  Here is how we ask you to help: 

  1. When we contact you, please let us know if you are or have been sick in the last 3 weeks, have been in close or prolonged contact with anyone who has been sick during that time, or have travelled outside the United States. Specific symptoms of COVID-19 may include: fever, cough, loss of sense of smell and taste, chest pressure, or shortness of breath.
  2. Alert us if you have any other health problems that make you more susceptible to developing COVID-19 or at increased risk. Although our office has implemented additional measures to keep you safe during this time, we encourage you to consult your primary care physician for further instructions on how to remain safe. Typically, patients over age 65 who also have respiratory ailments, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, or are immunocompromised are at greater risk.
  3. Medication Refill and Product requests: Routine requests for medication refills must be requested electronically through your pharmacy. Should you need to purchase skin or haircare products, please e-mail office@drrapaport.com or call us at 212-249-9955
  4. We ask that you come alone to office visits, if possible. To limit exposure and practice social distancing, we are doing our best to minimize the number of people in the office at one time. If you require someone to accompany you to your visit, they will need to be with you at all times or wait outside. 
  5. Please make sure to bring a mask with you to your office visit. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one for you.
  6. Please abstain from handshake greetings and keep a “social distance” of 6 feet or more from other individuals when in the office whenever possible.
  7. As soon as you enter the office you will be asked to use hand sanitizer provided to you upon arrival and departure from the practice. Coat both the front and back of your hands and wrists and let them air dry. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face. 
  8. Please reply to all email and texts that we send you. We are working with limited personnel and resources, so responding to these messages will enable us to keep in touch with you safely.
  9. We will provide ongoing care remotely using telemedicince. Our Nextech telemedicine system will allow us to speak with you, evaluate your face/body/breasts, prescribe treatment, and/or give you advice. We will be contacting you about your existing appointment to determine whether you meet the criteria for a virtual office visit rather than your face-to-face visit.
  10. You can obtain good and reliable information about local conditions regarding the pandemic at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/home

We understand that this is a difficult time for many. We are here to support and help you navigate through this uncertain time, and to continue to provide aesthetic medical and surgical care to our patients.  As always, you can contact us at office@DrRapaport.com or by calling us at (212) 249-9955. 

We thank you for your continued confidence in Dr. Rapaport and our staff. We set the standards for others to follow.
