What Is Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ treatments combine microneedling with tissue-heating radiofrequency technologies for the ultimate in minimally invasive collagen production treatments. 

Microneedling creates tiny punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin—not large enough to see—that stimulate the body’s natural healing process and promote collagen. Collagen and elastin are the proteins that give the skin its elasticity, bounce, and hydration. These are all the things we associate with youthful, rejuvenated skin. 

Radiofrequency penetrates beneath the skin, gently heating the tissue to generate even more collagen. 

This combination makes Morpheus8™ a powerhouse treatment: it aids in skin regeneration at a cellular level, as the microneedling helps cycle dead skin and older cells for new, healthy cells; the collagen helps boost hydration and firmness; and the RF technology helps tighten lax tissues. As a bonus, Morpheus8™ also helps to reduce unwanted fat in the treatment area. 

In sum, Morpheus8™ has the power to:

  • Improve acne scarring and surgical scars
  • Tighten lax skin around the jowls and neck
  • Increase skin plumpness and hydration
  • Smooth skin textural irregularities
  • Improve sun damage 
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize large pores

Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ treatments are effective yet gentle enough for all skin types. Additionally, it is effective for every skin tone on the Fitzpatrick scale.

If you are looking for a minimally invasive treatment that targets skin laxity, wrinkles, blemishes, and more, Morpheus8™ can help. 

Candidates for Morpheus8™ are not ready to undergo surgery. While facelifts are effective at eliminating wrinkles and skin laxity, many patients are not ready for surgery—especially younger patients who do not need a full facelift. 

What Are the Results of Morpheus8™ Treatments?

Immediately following your Morpheus8™ treatment, you can enjoy firmer, smoother, and glowing skin. You may experience some redness for an hour or so, but it will fade quickly. 

Since Morpheus8™ increases collagen production and resurfaces the skin, many results will become more prominent with time. 

Wrinkles and fine lines will become less noticeable, and underlying tissues feel firmer and more contoured. Blemishes, dark spots, and scars will become smoother and fade. 

Morpheus8™ is a fantastic skin resurfacing, toning, and firming treatment that can create stunning results without incisions, scars, or downtime. You can maintain results by adopting a healthy skincare routine, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding excess sun exposure.
