Why Choose Morpheus8?

Skin laxity, wrinkles, and sagging are a part of the aging process, causing our skin to tell our age, and sometimes even causing us to look older than we are. If you would like to achieve more youthful, renewed skin, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 at our Pismo Beach office is an effective, minimally-invasive solution that achieves dramatic results.

Who is a candidate for Morpheus8?

Because Morpheus8 is such a safe treatment, for most men or women with mild to moderate skin laxity and other skin concerns, Morpheus8 is an ideal treatment for those looking for facial skin tightening in the greater San Luis Obispo area. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Have no active skin infections or breakouts 
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not have severe skin laxity and sagging

What is Morpheus8?

The Morpheus8 device is an FDA-approved, RF microneedling tool that improves upon the results microneedling can achieve alone. Using radiofrequency technology (a proven technique to help improve skin concerns), Morpheus8 provides a significant rejuvenation for aging or damaged skin. 

During a typical microneedling treatment, a device is passed over the skin that creates tiny “micro-injuries” with ultra-fine needles. This process triggers collagen and elastin production. These two substances are the body’s effective building blocks in generating tighter, firmer skin. 

The Morpheus8 device adds radiofrequency energy to the microneedling process. The energy waves reach deep into the skin to heal the underlying tissues. This dramatically boosts the production of collagen and elastin, far more than microneedling alone can achieve. The heating effect destroys small fat pockets as well, which are later flushed out by the body. 

What skin concerns can Morpheus8 address? 

Morpheus8 addresses a wide range of skin concerns not only on the face but on many areas of the body, such as the jawline, neck, abdomen, and bottom. Skin concerns that Morpheus8 can address include the following:

  • Mild-to-moderate skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture 
  • Rough skin
  • Large pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Small, unwanted fat pockets 
  • Pigmentation concerns and discoloration

    What can I expect during my Morpheus8 treatment? 

    The Morpheus8 procedure starts with an anesthetic cream beforehand to ensure you’re comfortable during the treatment.

    Once the treatment begins, the Morpheus8 handpiece is passed over the skin of your face or part of your body you are targeting for improvement. The handpiece emits radiofrequency heating energy that is applied to the underlying levels of the skin from 24 silicone-coated pins that simultaneously create micro-injuries.

    As a final step, active topical ingredients are applied, which the skin absorbs more deeply after the microneedling treatment. This provides increased benefits. 

    The treatment time for your Morpheus8 treatment is usually about 2 hours from start to finish. To achieve the most ideal results for patients looking for skin tightening in the San Luis Obispo area, we recommend 2-3 sessions of Morpheus8, which are done 4-6 weeks apart.


    Your treatment of Morpheus8 in San Luis Obispo at Aesthera Med Spa require some downtime. After treatment, you may see micro-lesions appear. These can last for 2-4 weeks. You may experience redness, swelling, and possibly bruising depending on what area you are getting treated.

    When your treatment is complete, you can freely return to your work or usual routine. Makeup can be applied by the day after your treatment. During recovery and afterward, to ensure results are as ideal as possible, stay out of the sun, use sunscreen daily, and follow a healthy skincare regimen.

    Results after Morpheus8

    Results are typically seen between 30 and 90 days after treatment. The more significant results will appear in three weeks, once your body has had a chance to naturally rebuild fresh, firmer skin with the profound boost in collagen and elastin. Your results will continue to build for the next few months. 

    Depending on your age, lifestyle, and skincare routine, your results will last between 2-4 years.
