What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that pairs Microneedling with Radiofrequency Energy. This FDA-cleared device uses tiny needles to deliver Radiofrequency Energy to different depths of the skin. The needles and heat from the Radiofrequency Energy create micro-injuries, which trigger your body’s natural healing response and promote the production of new collagen and elastin to firm the skin and lessen wrinkles. The treatment is most commonly used on the face and neck (especially to treat jowls and firm the jawline, under-eye area, and around the mouth), but it can be used just about anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, chest, arms or knees.

Who is a candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a safe treatment that is generally suitable for most people who want to reduce various signs of age and address small fat pockets. Ideal candidates for Morpheus8 treatments should meet the following requirements:

  • Skin laxity is mild to moderate
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • Have no active skin infections or rashes in the treatment area
  • Are not taking Accutane

What to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment

We will start by ensuring your comfort with local anesthesia or a numbing cream applied to the treatment area to ensure you feel comfortable during treatment. Once this has taken effect, we will pass the Morpheus8 handpiece over your skin in the target area.

As the handpiece moves across your skin, the ultra-fine needles will create tiny micro-injuries.  RF energy is emitted from the device to heat the underlying tissues and further boost the triggering effect of collagen and elastin production. At the same time, the heat energy liquifies small fat pockets.

During treatment, you will feel warmth and a slight prickling sensation. Patients describe the feeling to be uncomfortable, but they do not report it being painful. Once the handpiece has been passed over the treatment area, we will apply active topical ingredients to the skin. These ingredients are more deeply absorbed and thus more effective after a Morpheus8 treatment.

Recovery after Morpheus8

After Morpheus8 treatments, your recovery time is quite short. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work or their usual daily activities and can apply makeup again after one day.

Expect redness in the treatment area for about a week. You will see micro-lesions in some areas where the handpiece was applied. These will disappear after 3-4 days. As you heal, use sunscreen and keep out of the sun.

Results after Morpheus8

Initial results are visible after several days. However, the more significant results will take several weeks as your body naturally renews your skin. As the collagen and elastin rebuild your skin from the inside out, you will notice brighter, more beautiful and glowing results. 

About one month after your Morpheus8 treatment, you’ll see the final results. These results will last between two and four years, depending on your age, skincare routine, and lifestyle.

How many Morpheus8 treatments should I have?

To achieve ideal results, each patient will have different needs. Depending on the condition of your skin and your concerns and aesthetic goals, you may need anywhere from two to five treatments. This varies from person to person, and certain conditions may require more. Morpheus8 treatments are performed 4-6 weeks apart.
