What is a Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling with Morpheus8 ?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling improves skin quality by delivering radiofrequency waves to the face through a fine needle. RF microneedling can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, pore size, and loose skin. RF microneedling works by triggering the production of skin structural proteins (collagen and elastin) and blood vessels (capillaries) so that the skin comes back smoother and thicker. Dr. Truesdale uses MORPHEUS8, the most advanced RF microneedling device available in the market.

RF Microneedling Before & After
FAQs for Morpheus8 RF microneedling in Beverly Hills
Is RF microneedling better than microneedling?
RF microneedling enables you to achieve a more dramatic result than standard microneedling. With RF microneedling, energy is applied between the needleheads to tighten the skin and lay down more collagen than traditional microneedling.
Does microneedling with radiofrequency work?
Yes, patients who have had RF microneedling see improvements even after just one treatment. Dr. Truesdale generally recommends 2-3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart for the best results.
How long does it take to heal from RF microneedling?
You can expect 1-2 days of swelling and redness after a RF microneedling treatment.
What device does Truesdale Facial Plastic Surgery use for RF microneedling?
Dr. Truesdale and Nurse Ness (NP) use MORPHEUS8, a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process.

Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
