Morpheus 8 Non-Surgical Skin Tightening in Chicago– MAE
Your skin changes as you age. Morpheus 8 can help you change things back. By stimulating collagen production in aging skin and remodeling the underlying facial tissues, this treatment can restore your skin to a youthful appearance without surgery.
Unlike topical treatments that only work on the skin’s surface, Morpheus 8 penetrates below the skin’s surface to remodel the deep layers of tissue from within. Patients enjoy dramatic results with a quick and easy recovery.

What Is Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 provides patients with the best of two powerful aesthetic treatments: radiofrequency and microneedling. Powerful RF energy is delivered deep into the skin through tiny microneedles. The RF energy induces healing within the skin. The healing initiated by the micro punctures in the skin leads to an increase in collagen production, restoring youthful thickness to the skin.
The treatment begins with a numbing cream applied to the skin. The Morpheus 8 device features a handpiece outfitted with 24 needles, which are carefully inserted into the skin to a precise depth. RF energy flows through the needles, heating and remodeling the skin from under its surface. The handpiece moves across the treatment area in a systematic pattern, carefully applying the microneedles and RF energy across the entire treatment zone. Innovative tools allow for treatment customization and precise monitoring of the energy delivery.
Plan on spending a couple of hours with us when you receive your Morpheus 8 treatment. It takes approximately 45 minutes for the topical anesthetic to take effect after application, and the treatment itself usually requires 30-60 minutes. The length of your treatment will depend on the size and number of areas receiving treatment and your treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions: Morpheus 8 in Chicago
How much does Morpheus 8 cost in Chicago?
The cost of your procedure will depend on the size of the area receiving treatment and any complementary treatments you’re considering. We’ll provide a customized quote for you during your consultation.
How do Morpheus 8 results compare to surgery?
Morpheus 8 is often touted as an alternative to surgeries like the facelift. Since this procedure can tighten and lift the skin, many patients opt for this procedure to treat skin laxity.
While Morpheus 8 is an ideal treatment for sagging skin and other age-related changes, it is not an alternative to traditional surgical procedures. This treatment works best for mild to moderate sagging. There is a place for both Morpheus 8 and traditional facelift treatments; many patients can benefit from receiving both procedures.
Is Morpheus 8 painful?
We want you to feel comfortable throughout your treatment. Without pain medication, Morpheus 8 can cause some discomfort. To ensure a relaxing experience, we apply a topical anesthetic before treatment begins.
During the skin tightening process, you may feel pressure or minor discomfort. Our technicians use several techniques to optimize treatment results while providing you with a more comfortable experience.
How many treatments will I need?
Morpheus 8 is a powerful treatment that can deliver results with a single treatment session. Before your first treatment, your skin will be evaluated, and recommendations for a set number of treatments for your initial treatment series will be made. Most patients receive between 1-5 treatments to start. After your initial treatments are completed, additional treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals may be necessary. Yearly maintenance treatments may be performed to maintain results after your treatment.
When will I see results after Morpheus 8?
You won’t have to wait to see results after your RF microneedling treatment. Patients start to see an improvement in skin texture and quality immediately after treatment. As new collagen and elastin production proceeds, results will continue to improve. The most dramatic results are typically seen about three weeks after your treatment, with continued improvement as collagen levels in the skin increase.
