The forehead, cheeks, and other parts of the face are constantly exposed to natural elements like sunlight, which results in early signs of aging. As we age, our bodies also produce less collagen and elastin, making fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin more and more visible. Dr. Zelken is proud to be one of the first plastic surgeons in Orange County to utilize this innovative procedure and treat visible signs of aging in the face without surgery.
Dr. Zelken is a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon that provides cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical treatments at his Newport Beach office. Morpheus8 is one of a full array of lasers , RF devices, and injectables he offers. During your consultation, he will draw on years of experience and hands-on training to suggest a combination of treatments to restore your fresh, youthful appearance.

When the body produces less collagen and elastin, the skin loses its plump and firm appearance. This results in thinner skin and it can be accompanied by blotching as well as the appearance of fine lines. Through the Morpheus8 treatment, Dr. Zelken can rejuvenate aging skin and produce natural results without the need for long recovery periods. Morpheus8 is also an effective technology he uses to clear up skin, reduce cystic acne in adults and diminish acne scars.
Morpheus 8 is an effective FDA-approved treatment to target wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging in the face. This type of therapy employs a matrix of microneedles to distribute fractionated RF energy to promote the natural production of collagen in the deep layers of the skin. Prior to treatment, the area is numbed to minimize patient discomfort. If you feel uncomfortable, Dr. Zelken will dial down the beam’s potency.
Morpheus8 is regarded as a safe and effective treatment to address signs of aging in the face. Some of its potential risks and temporary side-effects include:

Patients usually need a top-up session every few months once the initial series of treatments delivers the desired result. Our team can create a schedule to keep you looking fresh all the time.
Some patients experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but in most cases, Morpheus8 is not painful. Dr. Zelken will make sure you are comfortable throughout each RF session.
The results of Morpheus8 are not permanent but do have a long term effect. You can maintain a youthful appearance by setting up a regular appointment schedule. Most often, the treated area will peel. After that, the new, rejuvenated skin will be pink, but it will gradually lighten over two to three months. It may take up to a year for the pinkness to go away. It is very important to protect your skin during this time of healing. Redness tends to last longer in blondes and redheads. You may resume application of Retin-A and/or glycolic acid products around six weeks after laser resurfacing or as directed by the Zelken Institute for Aesthetic Medicine doctors.
