Morpheus8 for Facial Rejuvenation

Morpheus8 achieves tighter, glowing skin and contours the facial features. Around the jawline, and on other aspects of the face, small pockets of fat are diminished by the RF heating, which destroys unwanted fat cells to achieve a more refined, sculpted appearance. The skin regenerates because of the boost of elastin and collagen caused by the micro-injuries and the RF energy reaching the underlying tissues of the face.

The result? Smoother, firmer skin, a more defined jawline, and a radiant, more youthful skin tone.

Procedure Overview

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body, for all skin tones. It is minimally-invasive, FDA-approved, and combines the significantly restorative effects of radiofrequency technology with proven microneedling benefits to treat wrinkles, loose skin, acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars and more.

Morpheus8 has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, going as deep as 4mm.

Patient comfort is a major advantage of this device because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causes in the skin without tugging or pulling. These needles create “micro-injuries” in the skin, which triggers the production of collagen and elastin, the body’s natural building blocks, resulting in better facial contours, revitalized, fresh skin tone, reduced wrinkles, and a number of other benefits.

The addition of RF energy to the microneedling procedure not only destroys small, unwanted fat pockets, but it even more dramatically boosts collagen and elastin production to restructure the skin from the inside out, generating tighter, firmer, more radiant skin.

Morpheus8 Overview

The Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 can achieve many benefits for patients who would like to improve their skin. Benefits include the following:

Safe treatment

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 fractionally morphs the aging face and body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance. Morpheus8 can target multiple dermal depths, up to 4mm for Face and 8mm for Body, to treat skin concerns ranging from epidermal resurfacing to subdermal remodeling.

In addition, Morpheus8’s Burst modality allows multiple subdermal layers to be targeted with fractionated RF energy in a single pass for shorter treatment times and almost no patient downtime.


Who Is a Candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a highly effective safe treatment for the majority of men or women who have skin concerns and mild-to-moderate skin laxity. Thanks to its color blind technology, Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:

Are generally in good health

Do not smoke

Have no active skin infections or breakouts in the treatment area

Do not have severe skin sagging

What Can I Expect During My Morpheus8 Treatment?

We will start with an anesthetic cream to ensure you’re comfortable during the treatment. Patients don’t describe the Morpheus8 procedure to be painful, but as the needles pass over your skin, you may feel a slight prickling sensation followed by a feeling of warmth. To further diminish these sensations and keep you comfortable throughout treatment, we offer PRO-NOX, a fixed mixture of 50% Nitrous Oxide and 50% Oxygen.

During your treatment, the Morpheus8 handpiece is passed over the skin in the targeted treatment area, emitting RF energy to heat the underlying layer of skin as the 24 silicone-coated pins create micro-injuries. Once this step is complete, we will apply active topical ingredients to be deeply absorbed by the skin, providing an increased benefit.

Expect your Morpheus8 treatment to take up to one hour. We recommend 2-3 sessions of Morpheus8, done 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve the most ideal results, although patients’ needs will vary.


Recovery After Morpheus8

No downtime is required, but a short recovery period is to be expected after your treatment, during which you will experience slight redness that fades by the end of the week. You may see micro-lesions, which will last for a few days before they disappear.

Patients can return to their work or their usual routine after Morpheus8 treatments are complete, and apply makeup by the day after treatment. Stay out of the sun, use sunscreen daily, and follow a healthy skin care regimen to improve healing time and ensure longevity of results.

Morpheus8 Treatment Results

You will see your initial results by 3-4 days after your treatment. Ultimate results appear in about 3-4 weeks, as your body regenerates more youthful, radiant skin and builds a stronger skin structure. These improvements will continue to build for the next few months. Results last for 2-4 years, depending on your age, lifestyle, and skin care regimen.


Procedure FAQ's

What areas can be treated?

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.

What is the benefit of fractionated energy?

Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.

Can anyone use Morpheus8?

The benefit of Morpheus8's color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.

What are the benefits of RF Energy?

RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Can this be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments.

When can I put makeup on after treatment?

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week, depending on treatment parameters.

What kind of post procedure care is required?

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.
