Have you started to notice lines forming on your face where it was once smooth?
No matter how well you take care of your skin, as years progress, you will start to lose collagen and elastin. Those dreaded wrinkles then start to form little by little. Morpheus8 is the most advanced radiofrequency microneedling device on the market that incorporates fractional energy to deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen growth.
Morpheus8 offers impressive results with short treatments and minimal downtime. It is well-tolerated and safe for all skin types and tones. Breathe Aesthetics and Wellness is proud to provide this state-of-the-art non-invasive treatment in Austin and Dallas.
Morpheus8 in Austin, TX, works by employing a combination of technologies to produce better results than one can by itself.
Traditional microneedling and radiofrequency energy are individually effective at stimulating the body’s production of collagen and elastin to improve skin elasticity. Morpheus8 uses two applicator tips to produce impressive skin tightening and resurfacing results. The first tip consists of 24 micro pins that penetrate the skin to induce the body’s natural healing mechanism as well as melt subcutaneous fat (especially in the neck or under the chin) using radiofrequency energy.
The space between each pin allows the skin to heal faster and produce better results. The second tip contains an ablative resurfacing tip to heat the skin’s surface and deeper layers. This dual-modality treatment quickly and effectively tightens, smooths, and strengthens skin from deep within to produce more substantial and longer-lasting results.
Morpheus8 treatment typically takes one hour to 90 minutes. We will provide you with a topical numbing cream that you can apply one hour before coming into the office for your appointment.
In the office, we will cleanse the skin and administer nerve blocks to further numb the face. The nerve blocks work well, but we do offer an oral sedative upon request. After the treatment area is thoroughly cleansed and prepped, Dr. Saxon will guide the Morpheus8 handpiece around the treatment area. As soon as treatment is complete, you will be able to leave our office.
Visible results can be seen within days after your treatment; however, your skin will continue to grow new collagen over the following 3 weeks. Improvements continue for over 3 months!
Morpheus8 results can last up to a year or more. Dr. Saxon usually recommends maintenance or enhancement treatments every three months to increase the longevity of your results. Such treatments are not limited to Morpheus8 and may include Exilis Ultra 360, Exceed microneedling, IPL, chemical peels, or other treatments depending on your needs at that time.

Morpheus8 is non-invasive and side effects are mild. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, oozing, small scabs, bumps, bruising, or grid marks. These side effects are minor and usually resolve within one to two days, though sometimes they may last up to a week.
Some have reported facial volume loss due to the treatment provider setting the device to penetrate deeper than it should. Dr. Saxon has developed a detailed protocol to eliminate this risk. She is a national leader in this technology and trains other providers how to use the Morpheus8 device.
Morpheus8 is considered extremely safe, and serious side effects are rare. However, such serious complications may include blisters, pain, scarring, and patches of hyperpigmentation. With any procedure, you can minimize your risks with treatment from an experienced and reputable provider like Dr. Sarah Saxon.
Morpheus8 is an excellent treatment option for men and women who are generally healthy and would like to improve their skin condition. Morpheus8 is a safe and effective treatment for patients with sensitive skin and all skin tones. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who have an active skin infection should not receive Morpheus8.
The number of treatments needed depends on each individuals skin quality and texture. In general, 2-3 treatments are needed for maximal results. Each treatment is spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Unlike laser treatments and some chemical peels, Morpheus8 is safe in all skin types. Before this device became available, more aggressive skin treatments for relegated to those with lighter skin types.
Absolutely! Morpheus8 is most often done in combination with IPL treatments or FaceTite, but it can be added to most any facial treatment. For patients interested in achieving results comparable to those of a surgical facelift without surgery, combined Morpheus8 and FaceTite treatment is an excellent option. Embrace RF (the name for this non-surgical facelift) eliminates excess submental fat and tightens skin throughout the face and neck to produce a lifted and sculpted appearance throughout the face, jawline, area beneath the chin, and neck.
After your Morpheus8 treatment, your skin will be slightly pink – similar to you being out in the sun. It may remain pink for several days depending on the amount of heat needed or how sensitive your skin is. After 24 hrs, you will be able to wear makeup to camouflage any remaining signs of your treatment. It is advised to use a moisturizer and a broad spectrum sunscreen immediately after your treatment. All other skin products, including retinols, can be restarted 1 week after each session.
