About Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
Baton Rouge, LA cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. John Williams uses an innovative, cutting-edge technique that produces beautiful results for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have been used for several years, but Morpheus is a new unique procedure because it combines microneedling with RF at the same time. This particular treatment utilizes heat and energy to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. The microneedles allow the delivery of the RF energy to the deeper skin. The combined procedure not only stimulates collagen deep within the skin but also tightens the fibers that attach the skin to the deeper tissue. This creates tighter and more youthful skin. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge, combined microneedling and RF is used for our Baton Rouge and Alexandria patients to enhance and create a refreshed appearance.
"Dr. Williams was awesome! I had plastic surgery from a nationally renowned surgeon in Houston and my incision got infected. Dr Williams treated me for the infection which required antibiotics and additional surgery to removed the infected tissue and another surgery to sew me back up. His work was neater and tighter than the first surgeon’s. I returned for more liposuction later and he did a wonderful job! His staff is very friendly and it’s super easy having procedures performed at his office. Everything was first rate!"- T.C. / Google / May 16, 2019

Ideal Candidates for RF Microneedling
If you are interested in addressing your discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and/or other skin imperfections, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 may be the ideal skin treatment for you. Morpheus8 is a wonderful option if you want to:
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, glowing look

- Enhance skin texture, tone, and pigment

RF Microneedling Technique
Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved subdermal adipose remodeling device, or SARD. This sets it apart from other standard microneedling devices. During the treatment, the depth of the ultra-sharp microneedles can reach up to four millimeters, deeper than any other microneedling device to date. Depending on the needs of the patient, your procedure could take 45 minutes or longer. A local or topical anesthesia will be used on the skin prior to the onset of your procedure. Once your skin is numb, the handpiece will be moved around the treatment area as the tiny needles fractionally disrupt the skin's surface. RF energy is delivered to the deep tissues of the skin throughout the entirety of the treatment. Once complete, you will return home to recover.
What to Expect from RF Microneedling
RF microneedling sessions will be performed inside the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge office using a numbing solution to help reduce discomfort. During your procedure, the handheld device will slide across the desired area, repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. You should expect pinpoint skin punctures that will disappear with a day or so. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin heals over 3 – 4 weeks after having a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results usually take 3 – 4 treatments scheduled one month apart.
