What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a revolutionary new technology that allows us to target the layers of your skin to reduce
the effects of aging. This treatment combines micro-needling with radiofrequency technology for deeper
The objective of this combination is to permeate tissue more deeply, to 4mm, to stimulate tissue
remodeling that results in tighter, thicker, younger-looking skin.
Targets multiple layers of the skin to address the effects of aging
Treats a wide variety of skin conditions
Additional conditions such as skin tone and skin texture can be addressed
Safe on a wide range of skin types
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Vs. Traditional Microneedling
Micro-needling is a popular skin rejuvenating treatment that creates micro-injuries across the surface of
the skin. These micro-injuries elicit a healing response that includes the synthesis of collagen and elastin,
two vital proteins that give the skin elasticity and tone. Micro-needling creates microchannels in a
matrix formation that, when filled with new collagen and elastin, support smoother, tighter skin.
Morpheus8 builds upon this technique by delivering radiofrequency energy into the microchannels in
the dermis. Radiofrequency has a thermal action on adipose tissue that results in comprehensive
remodeling across the skin’s foundational structure.
Can Morpheus8 Rf Microneedling Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes. Morpheus8 can be combined with several different treatments as needed to address specific
cosmetic concerns. This radiofrequency technique is often combined with Halo and/or BBL to enhance
the contours and youthfulness of the face.
Morpheus8 Treatment Areas
This new device can be used on both the face and body, but the most popular areas to treat are the
lower face and neck where acne, discoloration, and wrinkles exist. This technology stimulates the
production of collagen to reduce wrinkles and allow the skin to appear young and plump. Morpheus8
can treat acne or acne scars, sun damage, lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and even mild facial
sagging on all skin tones.
Am I A Candidate For Morpheus8 Rf Micro-needling?
Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency, a color-blind technology that is suitable for all skin types and tones.
Treatment can address a wide range of age-related cosmetic concerns, including:
- Enlarged pores
- Mild jowls, sagging along the jawline
- Excess fat on the neck and face
- Deep creases on the face
- Sun damage
- Rough or irregular skin texture
- Acne scarring and other scars
- Stretch marks
Risks Of Morpheus8
Energetic treatments such as Morpheus8 always carry some degree of risk. This is why it is important to
obtain treatment from a licensed professional who has been sufficiently trained in using the
radiofrequency device. The primary risks associated with Morpheus8 are low and include bleeding,
allergic reaction to the local anesthetic, infection, skin blisters, bruising, and swelling.
What Happens During A Morpheus8 Treatment?
Before commencing with radiofrequency micro-needling, we apply a topical anesthetic to the skin. The
tissue is usually desensitized in about 30 minutes. After this has been achieved, treatment is conducted
using a small handheld applicator. The applicator tip has several ultra-fine needles that attach to
radiofrequency through the handpiece connection to the device platform.
When the applicator tip is placed against the skin, the tiny needles create microchannels.
Simultaneously, the needles deliver controlled radiofrequency energy deep beneath the epidermis. The
applicator is lifted from the skin and placed against the adjacent area. This stamping motion is
repeated until the entire area has been touched. The applicator is not moved across the skin but pressed
and lifted over and over again. This adequately delivers energy to the targeted depth without causing
How Long Does It Take To See Results From Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 has both an immediate and a progressive effect on the skin. Initially, the thermal energy
deposited into the dermis heats collagen fibers into contraction. Then, over time, collagen and adipose
tissue remodeling occur. While early effects may be seen within the first week after surgery, skin
tightening and toning continue to improve for approximately three months.
Does Morpheus8 Rf Micro Needling Hurt?
It is essential that our patients receive treatment in the most comfortable manner possible. Micro-needling with radiofrequency can be mildly uncomfortable in some areas of the face and body and
barely noticeable in others. The use of topical anesthetic provides sufficient comfort for patients to
tolerate their treatment very well.
Morpheus8 Recovery Time
After Morpheus8 treatment, patients can expect slight redness. This is typically no more than would
occur after some time in the sun. The skin may continue to look pink for several days. This depends on
the patient’s unique dermal sensitivity. After 24 hours, it is possible to apply makeup to camouflage the
initial side effects of treatment, if so desired. Patients are advised to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen
and moisturizer every day starting immediately after treatment. Retinols and other products may be
used again starting 1 week after treatment.
