What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive skin treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with clinically proven microneedling. During a traditional microneedling treatment, a handpiece equipped with ultra-fine needles is passed over the skin. These needles make “micro-injuries” in the skin that trigger the body to produce collagen and elastin. Morpheus8 takes microneedling to the next level by introducing RF energy to the process. The RF energy heats the underlying tissues to stimulate an even more significant boost in collagen and elastin production.

What are the Benefits of Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a popular treatment with patients because of its many benefits, significantly renewing and rejuvenating the appearance. The benefits of Morpheus8 include the following:

  • Minimally invasive, safe treatment 
  • Suitable for any skin color or type 
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars or other skin blemishes
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Firms and tightens the skin to achieve a more youthful appearance
  • Minimizes pore size for softer, smoother skin
  • Achieves a more even skin texture and refined skin tone

What to Expect During a Morpheus8 Treatment 

We will begin with local anesthesia or an anesthetic cream to ensure you feel comfortable during the treatment. Morpheus8 treatment time is generally about one hour in total. 

Dr. Vila will pass the Morpheus8 handpiece over your skin. The ultra-fine needles will make very tiny punctures to trigger collagen production, while RF energy is emitted to boost the result. The RF energy will feel warm, but not uncomfortably hot.  You will also feel a slight prickling sensation, which may cause some discomfort. In addition to the topical numbing cream, sometimes injectable numbing medicine is used, as well as inhaled nitrous oxide.

Once the handpiece has been passed over the skin in the treatment areas, we will apply a topical serum.

Recovery After Morpheus8

There is no downtime after a Morpheus8 treatment, but there is a short recovery period that lasts for about three days. During this time, expect some redness and small dots on the skin, which will disappear completely. While your skin is healing, make sure to stay out of the sun.

You can apply makeup again after one day. Most patients are comfortable returning to work and their usual daily routine within a few days after treatment.

When will I see Results After Morpheus8?

Results take several weeks to show up. This is because your body is rebuilding the skin and strengthening the skin structure from within, using the boost in collagen and elastin production. 

After about 3-4 weeks, you will be able to notice firmer, more youthful and radiant skin. We generally recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to provide a longer result. Results from a series of treatments can last up to a year or longer.

Can Morpheus8 be used in Combination with FaceTite? 

Morpheus8 is commonly combined with FaceTite to achieve the most dramatic improvements. Both treatments achieve significant anti-aging effects, and when performed together, they can help to take years off the appearance.
