Morpheus8 RF Microneedling | Cleveland Non-Invasive Facelift

When to consider Morpheus8 with
Cleveland Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ponsky

Considering a facelift, but worried about recovery time or want a less invasive treatment? Micro-needling radio-frequency (RF) energy devices like the Morpheus8 are suited for patients who are experiencing the early stages of sagging skin and introduction of jowls. RF micro-needling targets the sagging skin around your cheeks and jawline that can make you look aged, tired, and stressed. It will reduce the cumulative effects of genetics, sun exposure, smoking, fixed expressions, and gravity on the face.

Expert Cleveland facelift surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky uses modern techniques which create more natural-looking results than ever before. Morpheus8 combines the best of two proven technologies, micro-needling with minimally invasive radio-frequency to encourage collagen and elastin production.

The benefits of RF microneedling with Morpheus8 is that it is non-invasive, safe for all skin types, and there is no downtime. This facial rejuvenation procedure creates a more sculpted jawline, softens nasolabial folds, minimizes lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and improves the appearance of droopiness around the chin and neck.

How It Helps


Morpheus 8 allows you to experience the benefits of a facelift without the need for surgery.  It is the perfect treatment for patients looking for scarless skin lifting correction with minimal downtime. Morpheus8 improves signs of aging around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.

After the age of 20, the dermis produces 1% less collagen each year. Morpheus8 increases collagen production, resulting in firmer, fuller, and younger-looking skin. Morpheus reduces sagging around your neck, chin, and jowls.  It can also help remove excess fat from the arms, bra line and other areas.

Morpheus8 treatment can shrink acne and acne scars that form after your acne has healed, reducing the appearance of acne scars by up to 50% and smooth out the skin’s overall texture. It also helps fade stretch marks by breaking up scar tissue and fibrous tissue, leading to firming of the skin with better elasticity.

What to expect before Morpheus8 treatment

Dr. Diana Ponsky will begin your consultation by asking about your goals and expectations, then discuss any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. After examining, photographing, and analyzing your face, Dr. Ponsky and her team will discuss potential options and a recommended course of treatment, as well as outcomes, risks, or whether you are a good candidate for the Morpheus8.


What to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment

Before treatment, topical numbing cream is applied for about 10-15 minutes on the area to be treated.  If needed, other pain options are available.  During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed into the specific areas of your skin, allowing microneedles to perforate the skin.  Once the microneedles are in place, they generate radiofrequency (RF) waves to penetrate deep into the dermal layer.  This treatment is safe for all skin types. Once complete, moisturizer is applied to the skin, as well as sunblock.  The procedure typically takes 30 min to 1 hour to complete.


What to expect after a Morpheus8 treatment

Immediately after the treatment, moisturizer and sunblock is applied. You can sparingly apply makeup after that if you are going out.  You can expect mild redness and swelling (looks like a sunburn) immediately post-procedure which tends to subside in 2-3 days.  Avoid direct sunlight for 2-3 days after treatment.  Results are generally seen a month after treatment with continued improvement over time.  Best results are mainly seen after the 2nd treatment.  A series of 3 is encouraged.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
