Morpheus8 - Quick intro

Morpheus8 Microneedling - a quick introduction

What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The procedure involves the use of a device equipped with tiny needles that deliver RF energy to different layers of the skin. The needles and heat created by the RF energy create micro injuries, which stimulate the body's natural healing response and promote the production of collagen and elastin, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin.


Morpheus8 treatments are commonly used on the face and neck, but can also be performed on other areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, chest, arms, and knees. In addition to improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Morpheus8 treatments can also smooth skin texture, reduce the appearance of large pores, treat hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, fade stretch marks, and even help reduce some fat just below the skin, though not significantly enough to cause volume loss.


To achieve optimal results, most people require a series of up to three treatment sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, Morpheus8 can be an effective treatment option for a wide range of skin concerns.


Unlike other similar treatments, Morpheus8 has fully insulated needles so energy is focused at specific depths; reducing the chance of complications and improving recovery time. Morpheus8 also has patented technology that allows the treatment at several targeted skin depths, during the same pass over the skin, making the procedure faster and more comfortable.

What can Morpheus8 do?

Morpheus8 treatments can help with a lot of different skin problems. In the hands of a pro, it can:

  • Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten and firm skin that is slightly sagging
  • Skin texture that is smooth
  • Reduce the visibility of large pores
  • Acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
  • Assist in the removal of stretch marks

What are Morpheus8's benefits and drawbacks?

Benefits:

  • The non-invasive Morpheus8 technique can help people of all skin tones, and there is little to no risk of hyperpigmentation.
  • Treatments are quick and mostly painless when a local anaesthetic or a topical numbing medicine is used.
  • Unlike other RF microneedling devices, this one can reach subdermal tissues up to 8mm deeper. According to the company that made it, this makes it possible to get better results faster than with similar treatments.
  • You can change how strong the radiofrequency is and how deep the needle goes depending on the area being treated and your goals.
  • This helps your provider avoid fat loss unless they are specifically going after extra fat, like when they are treating a double chin.
  • Skin problems can be fixed in many ways on any part of the body.
  • Most side effects are minor, and recovery time is short. Moderate swelling and redness are common side effects that last for a few days.

Drawbacks:

  • For the best results, it's best to have at least three treatments, each one 4–6 weeks apart.
  • Since making new collagen takes time, you might not see full results for up to three months after your first series of treatments.
  • To keep getting the benefits, you'll need to get maintenance treatments once a year.
  • Some clients have had temporary side effects, like bumps or pinprick marks, that they didn't like.
  • The results of Morpheus8 can't compare to those of a more invasive procedure, like a facelift
