2 Ways to Glow Microneedling & Morpheus8
Looking for a treatment that can make your skin plump, and restore a youthful appearance without surgery? Finally, your search is over. With microneedling and Morpheus8 you can now effectively repair, renew, and elevate the appearance of your skin.
Morpheus8 and microneedling are two popular skin rejuvenation treatments that are designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other signs of aging. Both treatments involve using tiny needles to penetrate the top layer of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. While the treatments are quite similar, there are some differences, and results can vary between the two procedures. To learn the how and why before deciding which treatment is best for you, read on as we compare microneedling and Morpheus8.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatment that uses mini, sterilized needles to penetrate the top layer of the skin. This medical grade device creates micro-injuries in the skin that stimulate collagen and elastin production.
While the thought of puncturing the skin with multiple needles sounds scary, microneedling has many benefits for your skin. During the procedure, the needles create small, controlled, micro-injuries in the skin. As a result, the skin responds by producing new collagen-rich tissue. This process rejuvenates your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
What does Microneedling treat?
Stimulation of collagen is the most important part of microneedling. About 30% of the proteins in your body come from collagen production. Skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues rely on collagen for structure and support. By puncturing the skin with very fine, sharp needles, your body’s healing process begins to reverse the look of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity, and large pores. With microneedling, you can noticeably improve texture and pitting from stress, aging, and previous acne breakouts on your face and neck.
Numerous skin issues can be corrected with microneedling, including:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
When will I see results?
After microneedling, your skin regenerates new tissue quickly. It is not uncommon for people to see noticeable results in just a few days. However, the best results may not appear for four to six weeks, giving collagen levels time to increase.
How long is the recovery time?
Microneedling works hard to rejuvenate, but mild redness and skin irritation may occur for a 24-48 hours after This discomfort normally lasts for a short time. For lasting results, microneedling works best when combined with continued use of skincare products, like Evolve Medical Spa’s Intensive Recovery Cream, designed to help support the collagen boost and restructure surface area.
The magic of Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 is catching on, and for good reason. As an effective, fractional resurfacing cosmetic treatment, the device uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. Morpheus8 treatments target the deep layers of the skin, specifically the areas affected by wrinkles and other sides of aging. Most often performed as a series of treatments, Morpheus8 is innovative, safe, and effective in restoring a more youthful appearance to the skin without surgery.
During treatment, the device’s specially designed needles emit the radiofrequency energy deep into the skin layers, heating up and tightening the skin. When compared to traditional microneedling, Morpheus8’s added RF heat adds an increased boost to collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.
What conditions does Morpheus8 treat?
Morpheus8 is designed for deep tissue remodeling to treat multiple skin concerns:
- Dark spots
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Loose or sagging skin of face, jawline, neck, and abdomen

Evolve’s Intensive Recovery Cream
Evolve’s Intensive Recovery Cream is specially formulated with cactus and yeast extracts to significantly reduce irritation caused by AHA’s, retinoids, and microneedling procedures. This formula works by down regulating the most important signaling molecule enzymes in inflammation including: COX2, IL-1α and IL8. This downregulation soothes the skin, calms irritation, and reduces redness. Intensive Recovery Cream is further enhanced with four different ceramides to regenerate the skin barrier function which helps the skin maintain its natural structure. Restored structure decreases water loss and increases natural moisturizing factors, that hydrate and protect the skin, significantly aiding the skin in recovering after exposure to injury and stress.
