Microneedling and Morpheus8 in Manhattan: Achieve Youthful and Radiant Skin

Dec 18, 2023 | Microneedling, Morpheus8

In the pursuit of youthful and radiant skin, two effective microneedling treatments are now available at SkinLab on the Upper East Side of NYC – SkinFirm microneedling treatment and the Morpheus8 Radio Frequency microneedling.

SkinFirm Microneedling Treatment:

The SkinFirm microneedling treatment is a popular procedure combining microneedling technology with the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel to improve the appearance of skin firmness and texture. By creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin, the treatment stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin. Then, the Hydrating B5 Gel is able to permeate the barrier, delivering hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5 where your skin needs it most. This serum is gentle enough to help the skin heal and regenerate after the procedure, but with medical-grade ingredients, it is also powerful and effective.

Our medical aestheticians love the SkinFirm microneedling treatment. Senior Medical Aesthetician Maha Bute notes, “as the skin regenerates, collagen and elastin production increase, leading to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.” With minimal downtime, it’s no wonder it’s one of Maha’s favorites to perform!

Benefits of SkinFirm Microneedling:

Improved Skin Firmness: The microneedling process triggers the body’s natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. This helps to improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging and fine lines.

Enhanced Skin Texture: SkinFirm microneedling treatment also addresses concerns related to skin texture, such as acne scars, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. The tiny needles create microchannels in the skin, promoting the growth of new skin cells and reducing the visibility of imperfections.

Hydrating and Nourishing: The use of the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel during the treatment provides optimal hydration to the skin, leaving it feeling supple and smooth. This gel combines vitamin B5 with hyaluronic acid, a natural hydrating agent, to replenish moisture and promote a healthy complexion.

Morpheus8 Radio Frequency Microneedling:

A more advanced microneedling treatment is the Morpheus8 Radio Frequency microneedling. This innovative procedure combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the added advantage of radiofrequency energy. The Morpheus8 device delivers controlled energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and remodeling the skin’s subdermal layers. Director of Cosmetic Dermatology, Dr. Georgina Ferzli, MD, says “It’s the holy grail for skin tightening. It’s one of the best tried-and-true treatments I’ve seen in my career, and my patients love it because it works.”

During the Morpheus8 treatment, a skilled skincare professional uses a handheld device that combines tiny needles with controlled heating. The needles create fractional injuries in the deeper layers of the skin while the radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissue, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This dual-action approach promotes skin tightening, texture improvement, and overall rejuvenation.

Medical Aesthetician Danielle Diaz loves to incorporate Morpheus8 into her clients’ skincare routines. “It’s like hitting the ‘reset’ button for your skin – we increase cellular turnover, tighten and firm, and improve texture in one treatment!”

Benefits of Morpheus8 Radio Frequency Microneedling:

Skin Tightening and Lifting: The radiofrequency energy delivered by the Morpheus8 device helps to tighten loose skin and lift areas that have started to sag due to aging or weight loss. This non-surgical option provides noticeable results without the need for invasive procedures.

Improved Skin Tone and Texture: Morpheus8 microneedling addresses a wide range of skin concerns, including uneven texture, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. By promoting collagen production and skin cell turnover, it helps to create smoother, more even-toned skin.

Customizable Treatment: One of the exceptional advantages of Morpheus8 is its versatility. The device allows for personalized treatment by adjusting the needle depth and radiofrequency settings based on each individual’s specific needs and concerns.

Before and After Results:

Both SkinFirm microneedling treatment and Morpheus8 RF microneedling have shown impressive before and after results for many individuals. When combined with proper skincare routines and post-treatment care, patients have experienced significant improvements in skin firmness, texture, and overall complexion.


Maha is simply the best. She truly takes the time to listen to your needs for your skin, and then gets to work. She makes you feel relaxed, and gives honest opinions on what works best for certain skin types. I would 1000% go back for microneedling again. Ask for Maha any time you go to SkinLab, she is a gem!!!

Danielle Diaz is the best aesthetician I have ever gotten treated by! I was so apprehensive to start treatment. Danielle was so patient and informative she walked me through Morpheus 8. She explained in detail this treatment. Wrote down my skin care regimen and pre and post care instructions. Danielle followed up with me after each treatment. I will be referring Danielle to all my family and friends! Schedule your appointment now!
