Morpheus8 Radiofreqency Microneedling
Our skin is very unique and is meant to be structurally firm do to fibers of collagen and elastin. As our body ages, skin no longer produces the quantity of strong, underlying fibers that keep the skin firm, smooth, and youthful. This results in the development of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume, and skin laxity. Morpheus8 is unlike any other devise on the market in that it subdermally remodels the underlying structure of your skin, restoring volume and firmness and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This all-in-one treatment addresses a range of concerns, treating the signs of aging skin to restore a youthful, revitalized appearance.
How does it work?
Morpheus8 is FDA approved, and uses radio frequency (RF) technology in combination with gold-plated steel microneedles. These needles distribute radiofrequency energy in predetermined depths up to 4 millimeters, which provides much deeper depth of penetration compared to traditional microneedling treatment.
As these needles penetrate deep into the layers of your skin, powerful RF energy is channeled within the layers of your skin. This heats up your tissue to stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin. Simultaneously, the energy tightens the existing fibers and remodels adipose tissue (fat), so the contours of your face are defined, firmness is restored, and you are left with a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Who is a good candidate for Morpheus8?

Those who are looking to smooth lines and creases, improve uneven texture and minimize sun damage, tighten skin, facial and/or body contouring could benefit from Morpheus8.
What areas can be treated?Morpheus8 is extremely versatile and can be used on any area that could benefit from sub-dermal renewal. The most common areas for treatment are the face, neck, and abdomen. Other common areas that can be treated by Morpheus8 include:
- Nasolabial Fold Lines
- Bags under the eyes
What is the treatment process like?
We conduct Morpheus8 treatment after using a topical anesthetic to decrease the sensation of the microneedles and radiofrequency energy. Once the anesthetic has desensitized the treatment area, we use a handheld applicator. The tip of the applicator has single-use, sterile micro-needles that channel the radiofrequency energy. The applicator is placed against the skin for a few seconds while energy in delivered and then the clinician will move on to the adjacent area until the treatment is complete. The motion us somewhat like a stamping motion verses the applicator moving across the skin.
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of Morpheus8 treatments depends on a few factors including:
- The patient’s visible signs of aging
- The patient’s goals and desired outcomes.
The best way to determine how many treatments you will need is to set up a complimentary consultation with one of our clinicians. However, for best results, we recommend 3 treatments for the average patient. This will provide patients with the maximum anti-aging and skin rejuvenation results. If your main concerns are acne scarring or stretch marks, the average patient may require between 4-6 treatments to achieve ideal results. If you would like to be conservative improvements in your skin, you may only need a single treatment. Every patient’s needs, goals, and baseline are different and we are able to determine a treatment plan specific to your needs at your consultation.
Is there any downtime?
Like many microneedling treatments, its best to refrain from applying makeup for 24 hours after the procedure. Patients can see micro-lesions for a few days to two weeks after treatment and slight erythema (redness). To lessen the appearance of redness, we recommend moisturizer post treatment and avoiding sun exposure. Adding PRP after your treatment is also recommended due to numerous benefits including wound healing properties.
