Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that pairs micro-needling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It uses tiny needles to deliver RF energy deep into your skin, creating micro-injuries that trigger your body’s natural healing response and promote the production of new collagen and elastin, to firm and remodel skin.
Morpheus8 is an effective treatment for:
Morpheus8 is a new cutting-edge fractional device that combines microneedling and radiofrequency to remodel and contour your face and body.
This treatment penetrates deep into your skin and fat, resulting in a smoother and sleeker appearance.
Morpheus8 has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, going as deep as 4mm plus up another 1mm of tissue heating. This treatment is a minimally invasive, safe, non-surgical option for sub-dermal adipose remodelling and tightening the skin.
Morpheus8 helps with collagen remodelling and tightening of the skin. It will also break superficial fat that accumulates as we age, creating a saggy appearance most commonly noticed in the lower face, neck, and often the knees.
Frequently asked questions
I Have Had Microneedling Before, How Is Morpheus8 Different?
Morpheus8 is microneedling with radio frequency with adjustable depth (up to 4 mm) fine surgical pins. At the end of these fine pins, radio frequency waves are emitted. What this means is that you get a double whammy when it comes to skin rejuvenation and tightening. The microneedles cause a controlled injury that results in formation of new collagen and elastin (the fibers responsible for skin tightening). In addition, the radio frequency wave also stimulate collagen and elastin formation. SO, you have skin rejuvenation occurring from 2 different formats!! It is a great alternative to surgery if you are not ready to undergo the knife.
Why Are Adjustable Depths Of The Microneedles Important?
By adjusting the depth of the needles, the clinician can use the Morpheus8 to come up with a customized treatment for your specific concerns. Morpheus8 can be modified to address loose skin, deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, under eye bags, smoker’s lines, crepey skin, jowls and pore size. As our skin ages, we form jowls, lose our defined jaw line, develop a double chin (or the dreaded waddle), and our neck either becomes thick or crapey/turkey-like in appearance. Morpheus8 can be used to help all these problematic areas of concern and help you regain a more youthful appearance.
How Long Does It Last?
It takes 28 days to form new collagen. During those first 28 days, your skin will be reorganizing and remodeling deep into the subcutaneous layer of tissue. So, sit back and wait for the transformation! After just one Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect to continue to see changes in your skin for up to 3 months. Once the remodeling has occurred, you may opt for a 2nd treatment to further your improvement. Nothing will freeze you in place forever, however, it does give you a new starting point! Morpheus8 bridges the gap between surgery and topical lotions/treatments.
Where On The Body Do You Use Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 microneedling with radio frequency is most often used on the face and neck to help with deep wrinkles and lines, jowls, double chin, turkey neck, thick neck, undereye bags, smoker’s wrinkles, crow’s feet, large pores, crepey skin and forehead wrinkles. It is also used on other areas of the body such as the stomach, legs, and arms to decrease crepey skin, tighten skin and decrease fat. It is also used for hyperhidrosis (sweating under the arms).
How Often Can I Have A Morpheus8 Treatment?
You can have a Morpheus8 treatment 1x/month. It takes 28 days to make new collagen. Your skin will continue to remodel for 3 months. However, you can stack treatments as close as 1 month apart and the results will compound upon each other. You can space them apart as far as you would like without any problems. Typically, a person in their 50’s and above, will have a series of 3 Morpheus8 treatments performed with each treatment spaced 6 weeks apart.
How Often Do I Come In For Maintenance?
Typically clients want to come back in 12-18 months for a maintenance treatment.
What Is The Downtime?
After your Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect swelling, redness and possibly some bruising as it is causing a controlled injury to get your collagen and elastin jump started again. This will last about 3-5 days. For the first 3 days, you will be instructed on what products to apply to the treated area. After 3 days, you can apply camouflage make-up. Day 4-5 you will have slightly flakey skin. After 5-7 days, your skin is looking back to normal. You can go back to work the day after the procedure, but frequently clients who work, come in on Thursday evening or Friday and recover without make-up over the weekend. By Monday, you are good to go! Those who don’t work, often have Morpheus8 performed on Monday and recover during the week so they are ready to go on the weekend!
