Firm, radiant skin can make anyone look more attractive and youthful. Fortunately, you don’t need to endure a complicated, invasive procedure to tighten your skin and enhance your look. At Capitis Medical & Aesthetics in Roseville, California, we can improve your skin in an effective, easy manner with Morpheus8. This combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling body contouring technique can firm your skin, reduce your sun damage, and minimize the appearance of your lines and wrinkles. Read on to learn how this fantastic technique can help you.

Body Contouring: What Makes Morpheus8 So Effective?

Morpheus8 is an extremely effective way to enhance your skin. Many cosmetic treatments can only address one issue at a time. For instance, some treatments may improve your wrinkles without firming your skin. Morpheaus8 is different. This fantastic body contouring technique can firm your skin, minimize your wrinkles, address sun damage, and improve many other issues and imperfections.

A Dual Approach

This treatment is extremely effective because it uses a dual approach to treat your body. Morpheus8 uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling techniques to enhance your treatment area. This dual approach will affect the upper and lower levels of your skin. As a result, Morpheus8 can achieve significant, long-lasting results.

Radio Frequency Energy

During your treatment, we will apply radiofrequency energy to your target area. This energy is commonly used to tighten people’s skin and minimize the appearance of their scars. Using this energy will help us improve the condition of your skin.


Microneedling techniques use your body’s healing power to renew your skin. During your treatment, we will use microneedles to make very small injuries in your target area. These injuries will encourage your body to produce more collagen and elastin. These proteins can strengthen your skin and give you a more youthful look.

Why Am I Experiencing Skin Issues?

Many people develop wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and other issues as they become older. There are a variety of reasons why people’s skin changes as they age.

Decreasing Collagen and Elastin

Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep your skin firm and strong. When people are young, they have ample levels of these proteins in their bodies. However, as people age, their bodies produce less collagen and elastin. Although this is a natural process, it isn’t very good for your skin. As your collagen and elastin levels decline, your skin will weaken. Your chances of experiencing wrinkles and other skin issues will increase.

Sun Damage

Accumulated sun damage can also negatively impact your skin. Although being out in the sun can be very enjoyable, excess sun exposure is not good for your skin. The sun emits harmful ultra-violet rays that can damage the collagen and elastin in your skin. As people become older, the harmful effects of repeated sun exposure can become more visible. In particular, you may develop wrinkles and fine lines as a result of sun exposure.

Other Factors

Other factors can influence how quickly your skin shows signs of age. In particular, your genetics play a large role in the condition of your skin. Eating an unbalanced diet and smoking may also make your skin age more quickly. Further, unbalanced hormones can cause you to develop acne and other skin issues.

Improving Your Skin

Reversing the signs of age can be very challenging. Many people try to use expensive creams, lotions, and other skincare products to rejuvenate their skin. Although some of these products are effective, many of them do not deliver the substantial benefits that they promise. Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with your wrinkles, sun damage, and other issues on your own. Morpheus8 can minimize the appearance of your imperfections and give you a more youthful look.

What Issues Can Morpheus8 Improve?

Since this treatment can address so many different skin issues, it is an excellent choice for a wide variety of people.

Rejunivating Your Skin

This treatment can address many of the negative signs of the aging process. In particular, it can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and creases. It can also improve jowls and mild sagging. Further, it can improve the texture of your skin.

Addressing Imperfections

Morpheus8 is a great way to reduce your acne and acne scars. It can also minimize stretch marks, enlarged pores, and sun damage.

What Are the Unique Benefits of This Treatment?

Morpheus8 is an innovative treatment that offers many advantages when compared to other body contouring methods.

An Advanced Microneedling Technique

Morpheus8 uses a sophisticated device to provide your microneedling treatment. We can use this device to adjust the microneedles to a depth of up to four millimeters. This ability allows us to reach much deeper than other microneedling methods. Further, we can customize your treatment to fit your unique needs.

An Easy Option

Morpheus8 is a great alternative to a facelift or other invasive cosmetic procedure. Although these procedures are very safe, people may not be suitable candidates for these methods. For instance, some people’s skin conditions are not significant enough to require correction with a facelift. Other people may not want to deal with the recovery time associated with a facelift. Whatever your reason, Morpheus8 offers a fantastic way to improve your skin without going through a complicated procedure.

People can also use Morpheus8 in combination with a facelift or other cosmetic procedure. In fact, many people use Morpheus8 treatments as part of their facelift aftercare program. Receiving Morpheus8 treatments may allow you to maintain the benefits of your facelift for a longer period of time.

A Natural Method

Morpheus8 uses the healing power of your own body to enhance your look. Accordingly, we do not need to introduce injectable products into your body during your treatment. While injectable products are efficient and safe, some people don’t want to put these substances into their bodies. Fortunately, Morpheus8 allows people to get more youthful-looking skin in a natural, efficient manner.

What Will My Appointment Be Like?

Receiving this treatment is very quick and easy. We can use several different techniques to ensure that you will remain comfortable during your treatment session.

Preparing for Your Treatment

We will begin by administering a topical anesthetic to your skin. This cream will make your nerve endings less sensitive. It takes about thirty minutes to work.

Receiving Additional Protection

Some patients also enjoy using ProNox during their appointments. ProNox is a nitrous oxide system that can help you feel relaxed and comfortable during the treatment process. We can give you more details about this option during your initial consultation.

Performing Your Treatment

We will perform your treatment after you have achieved the full effect of the cream. This will allow you to feel more comfortable during your microneedling treatment. Further, you will feel only a mild heat as the radiofrequency energy is administered.

What Will My Recovery Be Like?

Your recovery process will depend on the condition of your skin, any treatments that you receive in combination with Morpheus8, and other factors. That said, many people have limited downtime after their appointments.


We may ask you to follow some simple rules after your treatment. In particular, you should avoid exposing your skin to the sun for a few weeks. You should also wear a high-quality sunscreen during this time. In addition, we may advise you not to apply skincare products that could negatively affect your skin. Following these rules may allow you to obtain better results from your treatment.

Using Makeup

Many people can apply makeup the day after they receive their treatments. That said, if you receive Morpheus8 in connection with other treatments, you may need to wait up to a week before you resume using makeup.

When Will I See the Benefits of This Treatment?

Since everyone’s skin is different, people will see the benefits of this treatment at different times. Some people see positive changes in their skin a few days after they receive their treatments. In the weeks that follow your treatment, your body will produce more collagen and continue to renew itself. This process takes time. Accordingly, most people see the full benefits of their treatment after about three months.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments that you need will depend on the condition of your skin, your desired outcome, and other factors. That said, some people achieve their cosmetic goals after one treatment session. Other people may receive multiple treatments. People receive these treatments over a multi-week period. During our initial meeting, we will provide you with more information about how many treatments you will need.

Can I Combine Morpheus8 With Other Cosmetic Treatments?

Morpheus8 is a versatile treatment that can be combined with a variety of other cosmetic techniques. For instance, people may receive Morpheus8 in connection with other treatments that target the skin on their faces. During your initial consultation, we can talk about the various cosmetic treatments that we offer. We will provide you with more details about the treatments that we can combine with Morpheus8.

Is This Treatment Safe?

Morpheus8 is a proven, tested treatment that is very safe and effective. It uses well-established techniques to improve your body.

Proven Techniques

People have been using microneedling to enhance their skin for a long period of time. The needles create very small injuries that stimulate your body’s healing process without requiring patients to take lengthy breaks from their usual activities.

As with microneedling techniques, radiofrequency energy is commonly used in the medical field. Many people have successfully used Morpheus8’s combined microneedling and radiofrequency to enhance their skin and improve their overall appearance.

A Careful Approach

We have extensive experience using this technique in a precise, careful manner. We will use our training and skills to customize your body contouring treatment to fit your unique needs.

Who Can Benefit From This Treatment?

Morpheus8 is a broadly effective treatment that can improve a wide variety of skin conditions. It is a great option for people who want to improve sun damage, scarring, sagging skin, and other issues. Further, this treatment is suitable for people with a wide variety of skin tones.

Making a Decision

Although this treatment can help many people, it is not suitable for everyone. In particular, you should not receive this treatment when you have an active outbreak of acne. You should also tell us about any health conditions or allergies that you have during your initial consultation. We will use this information to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this treatment.
