Changes in the skin are a natural part of the aging process, including skin laxity, small fat pockets accumulating, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin. Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive, advanced rejuvenation technique that achieves beautiful results, sculpting the features of the body and face and revitalizing the skin. 

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved microneedling device that minimizes skin imperfections, tightens and renews the skin, and reduces small fat pockets to achieve a younger-looking, more contoured appearance. 

Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy for a more effective, dramatic result. The microneedling handpiece, equipped with ultra-fine needles, is passed over the skin, allowing the ultrafine needles to produce “micro-injuries” in your skin while at the same time delivering RF energy.

The tiny punctures trigger your body’s healing response, which dramatically boosts the production of collagen and elastin to generate fresh, firm, and radiant skin. The RF energy heats the underlying tissues to further boost collagen production and liquefy fat tissue to achieve sculpted, contoured features.

What are the benefits of Morpheus8 treatments?

Morpheus8 is a popular treatment for patients who are seeing early signs of age and skin damage and would like to reverse these to achieve fresh, radiant skin and refined features.

Who is a candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is FDA approved as a safe, minimally invasive rejuvenation treatment for men or women who would like to address the signs of age, such as skin laxity, small fat pockets, hyperpigmentation, and other concerns. 

Ideal candidates for Morpheus8 treatments should meet the following qualifications:

  • Are in good physical health
  • Skin laxity is not severe (sagging is mild to moderate)
  • Have no active skin infections in the treatment area
  • Are not taking Accutane
  • Do not smoke
  • Are not pregnant or nursing

What to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment 

We will start by applying local anesthesia or a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure you feel comfortable during treatment. The Morpheus8 handpiece will then be passed over the skin in the target area.

The ultra-fine needles on the handpiece will create tiny micro-injuries in the skin. At the same time, RF energy is emitted from the device, heating the underlying tissues. The result is a dramatic boost in collagen and elastin as small fat pockets are liquefied.

You will feel a slight prickling sensation and warm sensation, which may feel uncomfortable, but it will not be painful. We will follow your treatment by applying active topical ingredients to the skin, which are more deeply absorbed and effective after a Morpheus8 treatment.

Recovery after Morpheus8

Recovery time is relatively short after a Morpheus8 treatment. During your recovery period, use sunscreen daily to protect your skin and stay out of the sun. There will be redness in the treatment area for about one week. You may have micro-lesions, which will disappear after several days. 

Most patients are able to return to work and apply makeup again after one day.

Results after Morpheus8

After several days, you will be able to see the initial results of your Morpheus8 treatment. Results will continue to improve over several weeks until you see more significant, dramatic results. These results don’t appear instantly because the improvements are natural, generated by your own cells restructuring and renewing your skin from the inside out. 

Final results should be visible after 3-4 weeks. Depending on your age, lifestyle, and skincare routine, results from Morpheus8 will last for 2-4 years.

How many treatments should I have to achieve ideal results?

Each patient has different needs and aesthetic goals, which makes their ideal number of treatments variable. We typically recommend 2-3 sessions of Morpheus8 for patients, although this may be different from person to person. Each Morpheus8 treatment is performed 4-6 weeks apart.
