Morpheus8™ is truly revolutionary in the world of beauty treatments. This minimally invasive, safe, and effective radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device stands alone in its ability to tighten and remodel the skin.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a highly effective cosmetic procedure on its own. By combining it with RF technology, as the makers of Morpheus8™ have, you get a transformative treatment for comprehensive face and body rejuvenation.
Dr. Joshua Halpern’s Tampa team offers advanced med spa services like Morpheus8™.
Before choosing which non-surgical cosmetic treatments to provide at his med spa, Dr. Halpern assesses their efficacy and safety. Only after gathering all the available information and proof of its cosmetic value does he add a new procedure to his menu of services.

How Is Treatment With Morpheus8™ Performed?
Morpheus8™ is an outpatient procedure that generally requires only a topical anesthetic. The handheld device works on one small area at a time to deliver RF energy through tiny needles that reach deeper into the dermis than other microneedling devices.
This process stimulates new, faster collagen and elastin production, with treatment usually lasting less than an hour.
Depending on your goals, one to five treatments may be recommended at intervals spaced three to six weeks apart.

Frequently Asked Questions About Morpheus8™
How long will recovery from Morpheus8™ treatment take?
Immediately following treatment, you can expect to experience red, tender skin that feels tight and may ooze or weep. Mild to moderate swelling and peeling may also occur.
These symptoms represent a normal reaction and are part of the skin remodeling process. You should see improvement within the first week.
Help speed up recovery and prevent complications while your skin heals with these tips:
- Make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
- Keep your face clean with warm water or a gentle cleanser, and pat dry lightly.
- Hydrate the skin with a mild moisturizer.
- Avoid makeup and skincare products for 48 hours and use only clean brushes and applicators when you resume.
- Protect the skin with an SPF30 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen, and avoid chemical sunscreens that contain avobenzone, caprylic acid, high salicylic acid, octocrylene, or oxybenzone.
Also, avoid the following:
- Alpha-hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, retinol (vitamin A), and vitamin C for at least 48 hours after treatment.
- Avoid direct exposure to sunlight, don’t swim, and take a break from exercising and strenuous activity for at least 24 hours. Sweating and bacteria in the gym can cause dangerous side effects, so it’s best to avoid it until your skin is healed.
How much does Morpheus8™ cost in Tampa, FL?
The cost for Morpheus8™ varies depending on the target areas and the extent of the treatment. You will be provided an accurate cost estimate during your consultation once your skin professional has evaluated your needs.
