Morpheus8 is a revolutionary radiofrequency
(RF) microneedling device

Morpheus8 utilizes directional RF energy to stimulate the dermis, where skin tightening proteins are produced. Morpheus8 is the deepest subdermal fractional technology, able to reach areas of the skin other RF microneedling technologies cannot.

Its dual benefits of microneedling and subdermal heating can treat mild to moderate skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone or texture, jowls, and loose skin in the neck.

The best candidates for Morpheus8 are people looking for facial rejuvenation without downtime or surgery, and who have realistic expectations for the results they can achieve with this non-invasive procedure.

To learn more about Morpheus8’s non-surgical benefits for getting rid of the most common signs of aging in the face, neck, schedule a consultation with our medical professionals who can recommend the best treatment plan for your unique skin type and goals.

The Procedure

Morpheus8 combines the skin tightening benefits of microneedling with RF energy for deep thermal stimulation. Microneedling techniques have been shown to reduce wrinkles and firm skin by creating precise micro-wounds throughout the treated area, prompting the skin to mount its healing response, which includes ramping up the production of collagen.

Treating the subdermal region with thermal energy from RF allows the building blocks of collagen and elastin to reorganize themselves, creating a long-term natural result to help reduce the signs of aging in the face, neck, and body. Morpheus8 is capable of penetrating up to four millimeters with an additional two-millimeter thermal stimulation depth, ensuring precise, proper treatment for all types of skin.

Numbing cream is applied prior to Morpheus8 for optimal comfort during the procedure. There is minimal to no downtime involved with the procedure.

Recovery & Results
From Morpheus8

Following a Morpheus8 treatment session, the treated area will be highly sensitive to sunlight, so keep it covered and avoid sun exposure. This also ties into the natural benefit of using a good broad-spectrum sunscreen to help protect the delicate skin of the face from UV damage that causes visible signs of aging, including lines and wrinkles.

You can expect to experience up to 48 hours slight redness after each treatment session depending on your skin. Although your results can start to appear as soon as a few days after a session, improving over the course of several weeks to months.

Most patients benefit from more than one Morpheus8 treatments for the most optimal results, depending on their goals and original skin condition. We recommend a series of at least three treatments.
