If you are seeking the perfect treatment to take years off your appearance without going under the knife, look no further than Farmington, Connecticut. Mopheus8 is an in-office skin treatment that requires only a topical anesthetic cream and about an hour or two of your time. This simple but effective procedure brightens and tightens aging skin that has begun to lose its luster.
Sun damage is often responsible for hyperpigmentation, sunspots, or an uneven skin tone. Or perhaps rough patches, acne scars, and stretch marks have blemished your soft, youthful skin over the years. Historically, the only successful treatments for these cosmetic concerns were surgical in nature or limited to multiple-session modalities or risky laser treatments. Thankfully, that has changed.
Today, patients in the Hartford area have access to an excellent non-surgical remedy to rejuvenate their skin’s youthful radiance. Morpheus8 is a unique, fractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing treatment that can safely and efficiently improve your complexion.
Morpheus8 technology is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Even patients with sensitive or darker skin can safely use Morpheus8 for beautiful transformation.
An ideal candidate for Morpheus8 is in good health, has a clear understanding of the treatment, and has realistic expectations for their results. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or individuals who struggle with active skin infection should postpone their treatment.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with concentrated heat to boost collagen and elastin production, instantly enhancing skin tone and texture. Patients enjoy long term benefits, too, as the treatment encourages the body to continue these improvements for several months. The resulting increase in collagen smooths out wrinkles and softens the appearance of scars while resolving skin tone issues in the following areas:
- Areas with Stretchmarks like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs
- Scarring due to surgery
- Banana Rolls
- Underarms for Sweating and Odor
Morpheus8 is an excellent choice for eliminiating the dry, damaged top layer of skin that comes with sun damage and aging. Rather than resurfacing a large section of tissue, as does traditional laser treatments, Morpheus8 employs a compact series of micro-needles, penetrating to a precise depth to apply RF heat waves within the dermis. These tiny pinpoints of radiofrequency energy accelerate the production of skin tissue’s most important structural protein, collagen. We can manage the heat energy we apply to meet multiple cosmetic concerns, including:
- Improving the appearance of surgical scars
- Increasing skin firmness on the face and body
- Resolving sun-damaged skin
- Minimizing fine facial lines and deep wrinkles
- Eliminating acne scars and stretchmarks
- Smoothing uneven skin texture
- Decreasing pore size
- Brightening skin tone
- Treating active acne
- Removing dark spots and hyperpigmentation

Our Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery team will perform your Morpheus8 session at our office in Farmington for your convenience. The treatment can last from 45 minutes to two hours. While most patients find Morpheus8 reasonably comfortable, we can apply a topical numbing cream or administer a local anesthetic before the treatment, to ensure your complete comfort. Our skincare professional will then move the Morpheus8 device across the treatment site, gently passing the patented handheld attachment over the skin. As the micro-pins pass over the surface, fractional RF energy is delivered deep into the tissue. Once the Morpheus8 treatment is complete, patients can return home where they can continue their skincare regiment.
Downtime after a session is minimal. Patients should expect some redness, mild swelling, and areas of tight and shiny skin for up to five days. Small, flaky scabs and peeling skin may appear along the microlesions. During your recovery, it is essential to keep the skin protected from direct sun exposure with substantial use of an SPF sunscreen. The treatment site should also stay moisturized, utilizing a product like Aquaphor or another one we might reccommend. Most patients can apply makeup and return to work the day after the procedure, when the irritation begins to fade. Before you leave our facility, you will receive detailed home care instructions.
Morpheus8 can drastically improve areas of skin laxity, stretch marks, active acne, acne scars, uneven pore size, dull tissue, wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
Yes. Morpheus8’s RF energy is an optimal treatment for patients dealing with stretch marks on the abdomen, buttocks, hips, arms, thighs and shoulders. It can rebuild existing collagen deep within skin layers, as well as promote new collagen stores, causing stretchmarks to soften and fade over time.
Depending on the treatment site(s) and the needs of the patient, a Morpheus 8 session may last from 45 minutes to two hours.
You may notice an instant improvement with tighter, smoother skin. Most patients report that they notice a deeper improvement with wrinkles and skin tone about two to three weeks after their procedure, which continues to improve for about three months.
The number of treatment sessions varies from patient to patient, ranging from one to four, spaced three to five weeks apart.
