What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. It is a non-surgical advanced microneedling treatment that penetrates the skin to transform your complexion and restore more youthful looking skin. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. With radiofrequency, this treatment tightens and smooths wrinkles on the face and body.

Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

How does Morpheus8 work?

Morpheus8 combines fractionated RF energy and microneedling which is scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. The combination of these treatments into one device can easily address a variety of skincare problems a patient has with a few sessions. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. Tiny needles penetrate the skin and heat the tissue to stimulate collagen production. Morpheus8 is a great treatment to contour and redefine subdermal layers of the skin.


The Morpheus8 treatment is a non-surgical procedure and the area that will be treated is typically numbed with a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure. After numbing the area, a small handheld device is used to ‘stamp’ the areas of concern with radiofrequency and microneedling. Morpheus8 treatments are normally under an hour. After the treatment, the area will be cleansed and a layer of antibiotic ointment will be applied for optimal results.

Recovery and Results

The Morpheus8 Treatment has minimal swelling, redness and pain. Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks, the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment. Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see mild swelling a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.

Post Op Procedure Care

Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process. The use of sunscreen can help reduce dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring.

How many Morpheus8 Treatments will I need?

Patients are recommended to get 1-3 sessions of Morpheus8 for optimal results. The best results are achieved after 3 sessions of Morpheus8. Each treatment should be at least 4-6 weeks apart.

Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

If you are looking to reduce signs of aging skin, tighten saggy skin, or reduce acne scarring, Morpheus8 is a great option for you. Morpheus8 can greatly improve acne scarring and skin discoloration but as well as contour the face and skin. Morpheus8 is great for patients who want a face lift and tighten skin without surgical procedures. This treatment can be performed if you are healthy. Those who are looking to smooth wrinkles and creases, improve skin texture, and minimize sun spots can also benefit from Morpheus8.

How is Morpheus8 different from other microneedling treatments?

The key benefits of a Morpheus8 treatment in comparison to another microneedling treatment is its deep and safe fractional treatment penetrating 4000 microns with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns. There is little to no thermal damage to the dermis. It is also very safe on all skin types and there is little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which is common with other resurfacing methods.

Can Morpheus8 be combined with other procedures?

Yes! This treatment works great alongside other contouring procedures such as Liposuction 360, BodyTite, FaceTite, AccuTite and other treatments to achieve desired skin tightening results. The procedures listed are also available at our office. If you are interested, give us a call to schedule a consultation or fill out an E-Consultation.
