What Can Morpheus8™ RF Microneedling Do?

Stimulates Collagen forYounger-Looking Skin

Morpheus8™ is a facial rejuvenation treatment that combines radiofrequency with microneedling to stimulate collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis.

The treatment stands out for its ability to penetrate the subdermal tissue (up to 8 mm), prompting new layers of collagen to create a more lifted, vibrant, and youthful look.

Remodels Adipose Tissue(Fat) for Better Contours

The RF energy promotes tissue remodeling by reorganizing the skin’s building blocks for plumper, firmer, tighter, and smoother-looking skin.

The innovative skin resurfacing treatment precisely targets energy toward fat cells to contour the underlying tissue. The Morpheus8™ aspect of sculpting adipose tissue does an incredible job of supporting youthful contours.

Allows Improvement for AllSkin Tones

Morpheus8™ can be used on all skin types and tones. Even those with skin sensitivity issues can safely choose the treatment for their resurfacing needs.

With different microneedle configurations, energy levels can be adjusted to suit your individual needs. There is less risk for complications like hyperpigmentation or sun sensitivity, even in darker skin tones.

How Does Morpheus8™ RF Microneedling Work?

What Areas Are Treated With Morpheus8™?

Morpheus8™ treats various areas in the face and body that can benefit from collagen renewal and subdermal adipose remodeling.

Most commonly, the treatment is performed in the following areas:

  • The lower face
  • Neck areas
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Essentially, Morpheus8™ can be used to treat any area that exhibits surface irregularities, such as wrinkling, fine lines, creases, stretch marks, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores, acne scarring, and poor skin texture. It is a great solution for anyone looking for a long-term solution to help maintain smooth, youthful skin.

How Is Morpheus8™ Performed?

During the procedure, local anesthesia may be administered to minimize the sensation of radiofrequency energy and microneedling penetration. Numbing cream may also be applied to promote comfort.

Your provider will then place the Morpheus8™ handpiece on the treatment area with firm pressure to disperse radiofrequency energy in pre-selected depths. By guiding the depth and intensity of each stroke, powerful RF energy is channeled to the skin to stimulate your body’s collagen production, tightening and remodeling the existing fibers and connecting tissues.

Typically, treatment takes about 45 minutes to complete. Depending on your cosmetic goals, you may consider combining other aesthetic treatments like Evolve body sculpting.

How Many Morpheus8™ Sessions Will I Need?

To experience full, comprehensive results, it is recommended that you undergo a series of treatments.

The number of treatment sessions will vary based on your skin condition, including texture, tone, laxity, and cosmetic goals. On average, three to four treatments spaced three to five weeks apart may be needed.

Some patients achieve stunning results with only one or two sessions.

Morpheus8™ RF Microneedling Results and Recovery

How Long Will My Morpheus8™ Recovery Take?

Because this is a minimally invasive procedure, there is no need for incisions, meaning there is minimal downtime. Patients can undergo the procedure and resume their busy schedules almost immediately.

Sunscreen and moisturizer are a must during this time to ensure the best outcome and avoid an uncomfortable tingling sensation in the treated area.

What Are the Side Effects of Morpheus8™ RF Microneedling?

Patients may experience a bit of post-treatment bleeding from the needles, but this should only last for a few minutes. Mild redness and swelling around the treated areas are also expected due to the absorption of RF energy, but this should subside in a few days to a week.

Makeup can be applied after the first to 48 hours to conceal any irregularities.

When Will I See Results From Morpheus8™?

Results should appear gradually over a three-week period, with final results becoming apparent after three months. It is important that you be patient, as it takes time for the new collagen to have a transformative effect on your skin.
