Morpheus8 | Ava MD


As we age, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin can make an unwelcome appearance. Today, more and more men and women are shying away from invasive procedures. Instead, they are opting for non-surgical or minimally-invasive procedures that generate results and allow them to return to work with little downtime or discomfort.

Ava MD is proud to offer Morpheus8, a state-of-the-art treatment that combines the power of microneedling, radiofrequency, and fractional resurfacing to stimulate collagen production and tighten tissue across the face and body.

Morpheus8 tightens and smooths the skin to reduce or eliminate imperfections – all without a long recovery period! With this treatment, you can target common problem areas like the face, neck, chest, arms, bra line, abdomen, love handles, buttocks, and thighs.

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an advanced, non-surgical microneedling treatment. Its unique engineering allows for customizable device tips that provide tailored treatment for every individual. This also means it can be performed on large, easily accessible areas as well as smaller, more delicate regions.

Best of all, because the needles do not affect the topmost layers of the skin, there is no risk of hyperpigmentation after treatment. This makes Morpheus8 a great option for any complexion.

With this technology, we’re able to comfortably penetrate the skin at a deeper level than any other microneedling treatment. This restores your face and body to a more youthful state.

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 combines radio frequency technology, fractional treatments, and microneedling to address a wide variety of skincare problems. Its tiny needles penetrate the skin, heating the tissue to stimulate the production of collagen.

But what truly sets Morpheus8 apart from the competition is the depth the needles can penetrate the skin. This not only transforms your skin, but it can mold the fatty tissue under your skin, allowing you to obtain optimal results.

With Morpheus8, we’re able to contour and refine the subdermal layers of the face and body for body subdermal adipose remodeling.

What Morpheus8 Treats

Morpheus8 is a skin tightening treatment available at our Santa Monica and Beverly Hills locations. Maintaining a youthful appearance doesn’t have to be a dream, nor does it mean you have to go under the knife. Because it directs energy to the adipose fat beneath your skin, it does more than address superficial imperfections.

Morpheus8 helps to treat:

  • Excess fat in the face and neck
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
  • Deep lines and creases
  • Sun damage
  • Poor skin texture
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Stretch Marks

At Ava MD, our providers use this technology and others like it to customize your treatment to your skin’s specific needs.

Your Morpheus8 consultation will begin with an in-depth skin assessment. Your Ava MD provider will discuss your desires for both short-term and long-term improvements. Morpheus8 is a great treatment option for men and women alike, and your Ava MD provider will create a customized treatment plan to give you results you’ll love.

What to Expect from Your Morpheus8 Session

The length of your treatment will depend on the area of your body that we are targeting. Generally, this is a quick, minimally invasive treatment that is performed on an outpatient basis, so there is no need for extended downtime or recovery.

Since this process is very easy, there’s no need for you to feel nervous as you begin your appointment. Most people return to work and normal activities the day after treatment.

Downtime after a Morpheus8 session is minimal. Patients should expect mild swelling, redness, and areas of taut or ‘shiny’ skin for up to one week. It’s normal to see small, flaky scabs and peeling skin in the treatment area.

To make sure that you achieve the best results from your Morpheus8 treatment, your Ava MD provider will give you a detailed post-treatment plan.


The Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art treatment that’s non-surgical, minimally-invasive and generates noticeable results through a combination of microneedling, radiofrequency, and fractional resurfacing to remodel the body.

Ava MD patients love the Morpheus8 because of its ability to:

  • Boost collagen production
  • Tighten skin
  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Smooth fine lines
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Improve the appearance of cellulite
  • Minimize the appearance of acne scars
  • Smooth skin texture and tone
