As we age, skin loses the firmness, elasticity, and sharp contours that characterize youth. The body’s naturally slowing metabolism means it simply cannot keep up with the demands placed upon your complexion by toxins, environmental irritants, makeup, and simple cell turnover. That’s why skin begins to droop, sag and wrinkle over time.
Historically, if you wanted to address this state of affairs, you were required to undergo invasive procedures such as facelifts and neck lifts. Today, you have better options.
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical procedure that requires nothing more than a few visits to your cosmetic dermatologist. With no recovery time, this advanced needling treatment will stimulate collagen production to lift, firm, and tone your skin to return that youthful glow you seek.
Are you looking for a better, less invasive way to reduce and smooth wrinkles on your face and body in New York City? It’s time to learn more about the Morpheus8 treatment today.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling treatment that is based on radiofrequency. With tiny needles that penetrate the skin and give off radio waves, it helps to remold the skin’s underlying structure by increasing natural collagen production. As the skin’s “scaffolding,” collagen increases the firmness and tightness of your outer skin layer, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Luckily for you, Dr. Howard Sobel now offers this new service in his Manhattan NYC Office, so you don’t have to wait any longer to address those troubling areas on your face, neck, and body.
Best Candidates for Morpheus8
Morpheus8 is best for those who have fine lines and moderate wrinkles or sagging. It is not as effective on deep wrinkles or sagging skin, which may require surgery to address.
Morpheus8 works for everyone, including those with hyperpigmentation or dark skin. However, you should always discuss your treatment with a reputable Manhattan provider before signing on the dotted line!
Top Benefits of Morpheus8
Some of the main perks you can expect from Morpheus8 include:
- Reduction of lines and wrinkles on the face and body
- The ability to treat large, accessible areas as well as small, detailed ones (such as around the eye)
- Reduction of cystic acne and acne scarring
- No anesthesia or sedation required
- Customized radiofrequency and penetration depth to tailor each treatment to your exact needs
- Minimal bruising and discomfort
What to Expect from Your Morpheus8 Recovery
Unlike facelifts or other surgical procedures, Morpheus8 requires almost no recovery time. You should plan on a couple of hours in the office three times over a few months. The results typically last between two and five years, with many clients repeating the procedure at that time – and noticing similar results.

Dr. Sobel: Your Choice for Morpheus8 Treatment
If you are going to get a skin treatment, even a noninvasive one, it’s important to work with a reputable provider in Manhattan – or New York City at large.
Enter Sobel Skin. Dr. Sobel’s credentials are considerable, stretching back decades, and have placed him at the forefront of NYC’s cadre of cosmetic surgery experts. His clients routinely see maximum results from treatments large and small.
However, it’s more than getting the best possible result from your Morpheus8 treatment. Working with someone who has limited expertise is risky. From incomplete medical knowledge to the wrong equipment, a novice or dilettante provider can damage your complexion rather than help it. Avoid that by coming to see Dr. Sobel in New York today.
