Morpheus8 Skin Rejuvenation in New Orleans | Être
Morpheus8 is an advanced FDA-approved skin treatment that targets the deep layers of your skin to build collagen, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate unwanted fat. By combining microneedling with radiofrequency technology, the full-body, non-surgical treatment stimulates natural anti-aging collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis. Your result will be significantly visible skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and scar remodeling, making this treatment ideal for areas of the body and face with wrinkles, acne scarring, or discoloration.
Here at Être’s New Orleans clinic, we are proud to offer some of the most innovative, highest-quality treatments that provide optimal results. Whether you would benefit from Morpheus8 alone or combined with our other cutting-edge procedures, we will provide you with an initial consultation to help you fully understand how the treatment will work for you and what results to expect.

What Does the Morpheus8 Procedure Involve?
Before treatment, we will review your medical history to ensure you don’t have any health conditions that might disqualify you from undergoing radiofrequency microneedling. We will medically examine your trouble zones and explain the procedure, aftercare, possible complications, and what to avoid beforehand.
The 30-minute procedure is simple and safe, causing minimal discomfort and minimal downtime. For additional comfort, we will apply numbing cream to the targeted area before beginning.
Your provider will apply the Morpheus8 applicator to the treatment areas, using several passes across the skin. The 24 coated pins on the applicator penetrate the subdermal tissue, coagulating the fat and contracting connective tissue to tighten and correct lines and wrinkles.
There may be some redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. We will provide more specific aftercare instructions during your visit.
After your Morpheus8 treatment, be sure to follow these post-care instructions as directed:
- Avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunblock every day.
- Do not apply makeup to the treated area.
- Avoid outdoor and intense physical activities.

Morpheus8 Microneedling FAQs
FDA-approved Morpheus8 microneedling is effective and safe for all skin types and complexions.
Morpheus8 microneedling with RF technology is effective for all skin types and tones, including sensitive skin and darker shades. It is safe for healthy individuals unless they are experiencing an active skin infection. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should delay their treatment.
For your safety, we require all microneedling RF candidates to complete a health screening with our medical staff to determine their candidacy.
An hour before your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. Because this product desensitizes nerve endings, most patients describe the treatment as very tolerable — like a mild heating sensation with an occasional, fleeting zap as the tiny needles quickly pass over your skin.
Following your Morpheus8 treatment, we will apply nourishing serums directly to your skin, where they will absorb and provide excellent benefits.
After microneedling with Morpheus8, your skin will appear red and feel slightly tender, much like a sunburn. You may experience tiny pinprick marks on your skin that will soon crust and flake off. The redness usually disperses within 24 to 48 hours, depending on the depth of your treatment. Most patients can return to work and resume social activities after one day.
