What is Morpheus8?

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are important building blocks for firm, youthful-looking skin. Morpheus8 is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to renew deeper layers of skin tissue than either procedure could on its own. The benefits of this combined approach are seen in skin tightening due to increased collagen production, helping you to turn back the clock for a more youthful appearance.

The Morpheus8 treatment can be used on many different areas of the face and body to correct:

  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Crepey skin
  • Skin discolorations
  • Poor skin texture

What to Expect During Your Morpheus8 Treatment

During your Morpheus8 treatment, topical numbing cream will first be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, the special handheld device is placed against the skin, allowing the microneedles to penetrate the subdermal layer, creating micro-wounds. By creating extremely small wounds in the skin, the body’s repair process is triggered, which involves elastin and collagen production over the course of the healing process. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is simultaneously emitted into the dermal layer of skin, tightening the adipose tissue (fat) below and enhancing collagen stimulation. Treatment time may vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Morpheus8 Results

Following treatment, there is no downtime required, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities. Mild redness or swelling may last for about 3-4 days as the skin heals. Be sure to avoid touching or applying any type of creams or lotions to the treated areas for 12 hours after your session. We will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to help ensure you receive the beautiful results you desire.

Some people may notice results as soon as their first treatment session, though we recommend 3 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to see the best possible outcomes. Once you have completed your recommended sessions, results will continue to improve for up to 3 months. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your Morpheus8 treatment.
