"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017

"Full Facelift - I have to give Dr Mentz 5 stars and would give him and his staff more if there were more stars. I interview 5 other plastic surgeons before deciding on Dr M.

Before your procedure begins, we will clean your skin and apply topical anesthesia. This will help numb your skin so that you feel comfortable throughout the treatment. Once your skin is numb and you are ready, your procedure will begin. The method is quite straightforward. The Morpheus8 handheld device, which emits radiofrequency energy, is rolled carefully against the skin, puncturing the skin and creating micro-injuries that "disrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. New skin forms as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and refreshed.
What to Expect
Immediately following your treatment, your skin may be red and tender to the touch. These symptoms will subside quickly as your skin heals. In the days following, your skin should be kept sufficiently moisturized and protected from the sun. Our team recommends the use of facial sunscreen every day to protect your treated skin from future damage. Additionally, patients should refrain from the use of makeup for approximately two days after treatment. You should notice beautiful results around three weeks after your procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for Morpheus8?
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems (which can come with age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling may be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent option if you wish to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Enhance skin feel, pigment, and tone
- Fix skin irregularities, such as discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the look of age spots and sun damage
- Repair acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, luminous look
Does it hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is put on the skin, most patients experience minimal pain during the procedure. During the treatment, we will check in to ensure you're comfortable. After the anesthetic wears off, you might feel a little discomfort briefly while your skin is healing itself.
Can I combine Morpheus8 with other treatments?
Although it can deliver amazing outcomes on its own, you might think about combining it with a second procedure for greater improvements. During your initial consult, our team will listen to all your concerns and goals about your skin before suggesting the combination of Morpheus8 with other additional treatments.
