What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a versatile cosmetic procedure that combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) technology to address issues like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. It customizes RF energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in improved skin tone and texture for lasting change, regardless of skin type.

How is Morpheus8 intended to be used?

Morpheus8 can be utilized to target smaller areas such as the facial and neck regions. In contrast, Morpheus8 Body was specifically engineered to address the reshaping of subdermal and dermal tissues in larger body zones like the arms and abdomen.

Morpheus8 is particularly well-suited for facial applications, offering a groundbreaking non-surgical microneedling approach that delivers facelift-like results without the need for incisions. We can also employ Morpheus8 to reshape facial fat tissue, achieving the desired smooth and refined appearance.

Depending on the depth of the dermal layer being treated, Morpheus8 can either help retain fat and tighten the skin or reshape the fat to enhance the definition of the jawline, reduce jowls, and improve the appearance of the neck—while still maintaining the fullness necessary for a youthful look.

How does Morpheus8 work?

Morpheus8 is an advanced skin-tightening treatment that combines micro needling and radiofrequency technology to revitalize the skin and boost collagen production. Here’s how it operates uniquely:


Micro Needling:

  • Morpheus8 employs small needles to create tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. These punctures prompt the body’s natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen production.

Radiofrequency Waves:

  • Concurrently, radiofrequency waves penetrate deeper beneath the skin’s surface. These waves promote collagen and elastin production at a deeper level, contributing to skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Synergistic Effect:

  • The combination of micro needling and radiofrequency amplifies the skin-tightening results. This dual approach leads to smoother, more contoured, and youthful-looking skin.

Procedure Overview:

  • During the treatment, a trained technician positions the Morpheus8 device on the skin’s surface. It administers energy between the needle and an external electrode. This combined use of radiofrequency energy and microneedling triggers collagen and elastin production, coagulates fat, and firms connective tissue in the treated area.

Morpheus8 offers two distinct handpieces for tailored treatment:



  • Tailored for smaller treatment areas.

Morpheus8 Body:

  • Designed for larger areas and deeper tissue.

Both handpieces offer a range of benefits, including tissue ablation, collagen remodeling, and subdermal adipose tissue (deep fat) remodeling.

In essence, Morpheus8 delivers a threefold action for comprehensive skin treatment, involving fat coagulation, connective tissue contraction, and sub-necrotic bulk tissue heating, achieving a holistic approach to skin rejuvenation and tightening.

What are the typical treatment areas?

Typical treatment areas for Morpheus8 encompass the face, neck, and various body regions with skin concerns such as scarring, wrinkles, or skin laxity.

How is Morpheus8 different from other skin revitalization devices?

Morpheus8 stands out from other skin rejuvenation devices by combining microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) technology. This unique pairing generates controlled skin micro-injuries while applying RF heat, leading to greater collagen production and improved skin appearance. Morpheus8’s ability to customize RF energy settings makes it versatile for addressing various skin issues like scars, wrinkles, and sagging skin, which may differ from the methods employed by other devices.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required for Morpheus8 can range anywhere from 3 to 5 or even 6 treatments that are all 4-6 weeks apart from each other. The amount of treatments needed for an individual is assessed by a medical professional.

How long is the typical treatment?

Morpheus8 treatment typically takes less than an hour, but the length of the treatment can vary depending on the sizes of the areas being treated, and the number of areas being treated.

Is the recovery time long?

Morpheus8 does require some social downtime. We typically recommend scheduling the treatment at least three days before any significant events. After the procedure, you may experience mild swelling and bruising, and your skin might develop small, raised bumps. The positive news is that the recovery process is usually quick and satisfactory, typically lasting for 1-3 days. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to set aside this short period to allow your skin to heal properly.

Is Morpheus8 considered surgery?

No. Morpheus8 is regarded as a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure.

What are the potential side effects?

Following the treatment, you might encounter slight swelling and bruising, along with the possibility of small, raised bumps on your skin. Fortunately, the good news is that the recovery process is typically brief and satisfying, typically spanning a duration of 1-3 days.

Is the Morpheus8 treatment painful?

Morpheus8 is indeed an intensive treatment. Patients commonly report that the second and third sessions are more tolerable than the initial one.

To enhance the overall treatment experience, we attempt to fully numb the skin before the procedure. We utilize topical numbing, followed by the injection of lidocaine into the skin paired with laughing gas to minimize pain and discomfort.

It’s important to recognize that pain tolerance varies greatly among individuals. Some patients find Morpheus8 comfortable with only topical numbing, while others, despite having high pain thresholds, may find the experience somewhat challenging.

With our current pain management protocols in place, the treatment is not inherently painful, but it can be a bit uncomfortable. One important consideration is the duration: you should anticipate the treatment taking approximately 1.5-2 hours. The numbing process accounts for about an hour, while the actual treatment itself is relatively brief, lasting around 20 minutes.

Making the Most of Your Time: Bring Entertainment

We encourage you to bring entertainment, such as headphones and music or a podcast, to help make the waiting time more enjoyable during the procedure

Does Morpheus8 use laser, radiofrequency, or ultrasound energy?

Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency technology along with microneedling so that it can create small entries in the skin while delivering heat to induce collagen production in the skin.

Can I receive Morpheus8 if I have a darker skin tone?

Morpheus8 offers a significant advantage in that it is safe for individuals of all skin types and tones, ensuring inclusivity for those looking to revitalize their skin. Unlike certain skin resurfacing treatments that may entail a risk of hyperpigmentation, Morpheus8 does not raise this concern. Individuals dealing with issues like sun damage or dark spots can anticipate significant improvements from Morpheus8 treatments, thanks to its effective top layer skin resurfacing capability.

Important Pre-Treatment Instructions

To reduce the chance of any adverse side effects, we recommend doing the following things (unless your physician says otherwise):

  • Make sure to hydrate, and moisturize your skin well daily before the treatment (at least a week in advance).
