What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a new microneedling treatment developed to be more effective than other types of microneedling treatment. Morpheus8 stimulates remodeling in the adipose tissue of the dermis. Designed by In Mode Aesthetics, a leading manufacturer in the radiofrequency technology arena, Morpheus8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency with the microneedling technique. On its own, microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus8, collagen increase is only the icing on the cake. By inserting radiofrequency energy to tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening.

Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

For generally healthy individuals, Morpheus8’s innovative technology can be used safely on all skin types. The device’s unique properties even allow darker skin tones to be treated with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can be common with other skin resurfacing methods.

Clientele with the following skin conditions have experienced improvement with Morpheus8 treatments:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Acne scarring as well as other scars on the face and body
  • Mild sagging of the face and neck
  • Mild jowling
  • Deep lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

What Areas Can be Treated With Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 can be used to treat virtually any area of the face and body that would benefit from wrinkle and/or scar reduction, skin tightening, and refined contouring. The most common areas treated are the face and neck. Other common treatment areas include the abdomen and knees, but Morpheus8 can be used to improve any area where skin rejuvenation is desired.

The Morpheus8 Treatment

We conduct Morpheus8 treatment using a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation of both the microneedles and radiofrequency energy penetration. After the topical numbing cream has desensitized the skin, we begin treatment using a small handheld applicator. The tip of the applicator has several tiny needles that are powered with radiofrequency via the device platform. The treating clinician places the applicator against the skin for a few seconds while energy is inserted through the needles. The applicator is then removed from the surface and placed onto the adjacent area. The motion is somewhat like a stamping technique rather than moving the applicator across the skin.

How Does Morpheus8 Compare To Other Microneedling Treatments?

Morpheus8 is unlike any microneedling treatment we’ve seen. In a standard microneedling treatment, a small needle-clad applicator is moved across the skin. Microneedles may be automated to move vertically to “stamp” the skin as the handpiece passes over the epidermis. The needles on the applicator reach a depth of approximately 2mm. After microneedling, a technician may apply a nourishing serum such as platelet-rich plasma or a vitamin concoction to address a particular concern.Morpheus8 is immediately different because its needles reach a depth of 4mm. This alone is significant because change is stimulated within the skin’s foundational structure. Additional benefits stem from the inclusion of radiofrequency, the energy that gently heats subdermal adipose tissue for more profound tightening and toning.

How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Are Needed?

Morpheus8 begins to stimulate change immediately after the first treatment. Depending on the extent of improvement a patient desires, a series of 2 to 4 treatments may be considered. It is our intent to recommend only what a patient needs to reach their desired outcome. We conduct a thorough consultation and skin assessment to fully understand each person’s needs.

Morpheus8 Recovery

Most clients can use makeup the day following treatment. Occasionally, Mild redness and swelling may occur or two.

Can I Wear Makeup After My Morpheus8 Treatment?

Microneedling with Morpheus8 goes above and beyond to affect deep adipose tissue. The skin may be slightly sensitive for a few days. Generally, clients are encouraged to refrain from wearing makeup for 1 to 2 days.

Is Morpheus8 Painful?

We do our best to make every treatment comfortable. Microneedling with radiofrequency may feel slightly uncomfortable in certain areas. However, our use of topical numbing cream makes treatment much more pleasant than many clients expect.
