What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a device that combines micro-needling with fractional radiofrequency for the non-invasive treatment of lines, wrinkles, and depressed scars. The fractional radiofrequency energy penetrates deeper layers of the skin and dermis to stimulate collagen production and induce skin rejuvenation. Morpheus 8 is also FDA approved as a subdermal adipose remodelling device (SARD) which means it can help sculpt or remodel the fat under the skin while improving skin texture and radiance.
Suitable for all skin types and tones, this treatment can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, hands and other parts of the body as a series of 1-5 treatments done 3-6 weeks apart from one another.
What Are the Benefits of Morpheus8?
One of the main benefits of Morpheus 8 is that it is a new subdermal adipose remodelling device that fractionally remodels the face and body to treat loose, wrinkled skin anywhere on the body with minimal downtime. Typical areas to be treated include the face, neck, under upper arms, post-surgical or postnatal abdomen or thighs. Skin tightening treatments can be used to tackle a number of frustrating skin problems for example reducing the appearance of stretch marks, lose skin and sagging skin. Results continue to improve up to six months as new collagen develops.

Before and After
What Can I Expect?
The treatment takes 20-60 minutes depending on the area being treatment. During the course of the treatment, you will experience brief, deep heat sensation with prickling from the needling.
After Morpheus8 treatment, patients can expect slight redness. This is typically no more than would occur after some time in the sun. The skin may continue to look pink for several days. This depends on the patient’s unique dermal sensitivity. After 24 hours, it is possible to apply makeup to camouflage the initial side effects of treatment, if so desired. Patients are advised to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen and moisturizer every day starting immediately after treatment. Retinols and other products may be used again starting 1 week after treatment.
When Will I See Results From Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 has both an immediate and a progressive effect on the skin. Initially, the thermal energy deposited into the dermis heats collagen fibers into contraction. Then, over time, collagen and adipose tissue remodeling occur.
Noticeable results can be seen within a few days after treatment. Your skin will continue to improve and be close to its best around three weeks. Improvements can continue up to three months post-treatment.
