Microneedling Q & A
What is Morpheus 8
Morpheus 8 is one of many anti-aging treatments that achieves youthful, plump looking skin.
It is a form of microneedling treatment that also uses radiofrequency. Microneedling on its own is known to be a highly effective treatment for jumpstarting collagen in the skin. Adding radiofrequency technology only increases the efficacy of the treatment.
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin, to create tiny “micro-injuries” that then heal. This healing process involves the production of collagen and elastin, which are the two components that make the skin look youthful.
In other words, microneedling jumpstarts collagen and elastin production by triggering the skin’s natural healing process through artificial “injuries” that do not actually harm the surface of the skin.
This process helps lift the skin, helping to smooth and tighten the tissue , which tends to become loose overtime as our skin ages.
Now that we understand microneedling, how does radio-frequency enhance the results of this treatment?
Radiofrequency is delivered through the micro needling needles, heating the deeper layers of the skin that cannot be reached with traditional microneedling.
This added heat and the activation of deeper layers of the skin are what make the results of Morpheus greater.
While traditional microneedling treatments are mainly used on the face where signs of aging are most prevalent, Morpheus can be used to treat the face, as well as other parts of the body.
Because Morpheus can penetrate deep into the subdermal layers, it can target fat and work to remodel and contour the face and body.
The Benefits of Morpheus 8
Morpheus 8 has proven to deliver amazing results by counteracting the aging process in both the face and body.
The main benefit is that Morpheus can be used on the body as well as the face, which differentiates it from other microneedling treatments.
It also can be used on all skin types safely. While it heats the skin, it is not like laser treatment, which works better on lighter skin tones.
Instead Morpheus can be used on anyone without doing any damage to the skin.
Morpheus can target a number of different signs of aging and counter- act them to provide youthful looking skin.
First and foremost, it can reduce the appearance of fine links and wrinkles. By boosting collagen and elastin production, the skin becomes smoother and more plump. For similar reasons, Morpheus can be used to tighten loose or sagging skin on the body.
It can also help reduce fat volume in the face and neck, helping to actually contour the face and body.
Additionally, Morpheus helps treat scarring, skin discoloration, and the appearance of stretch marks as it triggers the skin’s healing process.
About Morpheus Treatment: Procedure and Cost
The Morpheus treatment process is quick, easy and requires no post-treatment downtime!
Since Morpheus is non-invasive, there is no need for any recovery. This is one of its many benefits.
At Laureate LA, we will evaluate your trouble areas and listen to your skincare goals before we develop a treatment plan for you.
Before the Morpheus treatment, we will apply numbing cream to reduce any discomfort, although the treatment should be virtually painless.
The Morpheus treatment will last about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.
For the best results, some clients can opt for up to three treatments. However, this depends on the goals of the client.
One should feel only slight discomfort during treatment, as the needles are very sharp and fine, making the punctures less noticeable. It will feel as if the skin is being pricked and then a warm sensation from the radiofrequency technology.
After the treatment is over, the skin will be slightly swollen but this inflammation will go down quickly. It will likely feel like a minor sunburn and you will be left with some minor bleeding right after the treatment from the punctures.
Post-treatment, be sure to use a good moisturizer and apply sunscreen. But, we recommend you always apply sunscreen no matter what treatments you receive!
You will see results from your Morpheus treatment immediately! And, as your skin heals and produces collagen, you will notice even greater results. In about 6-12 weeks time, you will see amazing results!
Whether you are looking to mitigate the signs of aging or eliminate acne scars and stretch marks, LaureateLA provides high-quality, state of the art treatment such as Morpheus 8.
The technology will instantly take years off your skin by triggering your skin’s natural healing process and its production of collagen and elastin.

What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin renewal treatment that causes collagen and elastin growth deep within for stronger and firmer skin. It also causes improvements on the surface of your skin to improve your complexion because of the growth factors that are released during the process.
Microneedling creates controlled wounds in your skin using a network of extremely fine needles. These injuries are small enough that they don’t do much damage, but they do stimulate healing processes in response.
You can enhance your microneedling at Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa with customization options to increase or accelerate your skin’s healing. The team offers topical numbing cream before the treatment so you won’t feel the sting of the needles as they puncture your skin.
Typically, Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa tells you to schedule a series of three to six microneedling treatments, though you may need up to 12 for deep scars and stretch marks.
What can microneedling treat?
Microneedling helps your skin heal some of the blemishes and damages that it cannot heal on its own without any intervention.
Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa uses microneedling to treat your:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Pigmentation issues
- Skin laxity
During a personalized consultation, you can identify your skin concerns to your provider and decide which areas to target with microneedling. Some of the most commonly targeted regions are the face, neck, chest, and abdomen.
How can I enhance the effects of microneedling?
Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa offers above and beyond options for microneedling that give you faster and more intense results than the traditional manual technique using a roller or pen. The team uses Morpheus8 by InMode to provide microneedling treatments with radiofrequency.
Radiofrequency is a form of gentle energy that won’t damage your skin’s surface. The energy travels through the needles on the handpiece and into your skin to disrupt deep tissues and cause additional collagen and elastin growth from fibroblasts. If you opt for radiofrequency microneedling, a shorter treatment plan of just one to two sessions will suffice.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is another enhancement option for microneedling. It comes from your own blood, containing growth factors and platelets to help your skin heal.
