What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment. This means that it combines the controlled micro-injuries of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to further stimulate collagen production and promote healthy cell turnover. Compared to standard microneedling, RF microneedling such as Morpheus8 reaches deeper layers of the skin for more effective rejuvenation. While improving the skin’s health and appearance, Morpheus8 also molds fat below the skin’s surface to enhance overall results. The result is more youthful, healthy, and smooth skin with reduced wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, scarring, and more.

What Happens During Morpheus8 Treatment?
Before your Morpheus8 treatment begins, a topical numbing solution is applied to the treatment area to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Once numbing has taken effect, the treatment will begin by applying the Morpheus8 handpiece to the skin. The microneedles will then puncture the skin while delivering radiofrequency energy before the handpiece can be moved to the next target area. This process typically takes about an hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and other considerations. Following Morpheus8 treatment, no downtime is required and you can return to your normal routine. Some redness and sensitivity in the treatment area can be expected, but this should quickly resolve.
After Morpheus8 treatment, you will notice redness, some slight swelling, and sensitivity. Some patients may also see minimal bruising. You should apply ointment to the treatment area according to your aftercare directions and take care to avoid direct sun exposure for at least 48 hours. Any residual redness can be covered with breathable makeup if you choose, and SPF should be applied daily.
Some Morpheus8 results are immediately noticeable, but you will see results continue to improve over the weeks following your treatment as new collagen develops. Most patients will require a series of treatments to reach their ideal results. During a consultation, a full treatment plan can be developed according to your unique needs and goals.
