MORPHEUS8: The Powerful Benefits of Microneedling with Radiofrequency

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

Morpheus8 is more than just a microneedling device. It’s our latest and greatest full-body, non-surgical, anti-aging tool that stimulates a serious skin-tightening process thanks to the addition of radiofrequency.

This advanced microneedling treatment – the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodeling device (it targets the deflation of soft tissue, like an aging jowl) – has incredible benefits.

HOW MORPHEUS8 WORKS

You probably heard of microneedling – a dermapen procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin, in order to generate new collagen and tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.

Morpheus8 works similar to a microneedling tool, but rather than simply prick the skin, this device also incorporates radiofrequency, which triggers that collagen and elastin production at a deeper level that microneedling can’t reach. The 24 coated pins penetrate into the subdermal tissue, coagulating the fat and contracting connective tissue to tighten and rejuvenate the treated area.

As for the procedure, after using a topical numbing cream on the patient’s treatment area, the handheld device is pressed into the area, allowing the minuscule microneedles to perforate the skin. Once the pins are in place, they emit radiofrequency (RF) waves. The heat from these waves penetrates deep into the dermal skin layer, tightening the skin and fat below. The whole procedure – numbing and preparations included – doesn’t take much more than two hours.

Morpheus8 treatment delivers uniform results for all skin types without creating any thermal damage to your dermis. The innovative technology also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a side effect of some resurfacing techniques

WHY MORPHEUS8 IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OTHER DEVICES

The secret lies in how the RF and microneedling combine. Microneedling creates the channels to allow the RF to penetrate the skin’s deepest layers. And when RF can reach those deeper layers, it’s what truly contours and transforms the skin.

IDEAL AREAS TO TREAT & TARGET

Morpheus8’s most popular target area might just be jowls, jawline, and submental area of the neck (the space below the chin). But it can also be used to tighten loose skin on the inner and outer thighs, above the knees, and abdomen. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and wrinkles.

Morpheus8 can effectively correct:

  • Loose or sagging skin of face, jawline, neck, and body
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on face, neck, and décolletage
  • Under eyes sagging skin and wrinkles
  • Acne Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Discolorations
  • Crepey Skin on Arms, Knees and Abdominal

WHAT DOES THE MORPHEUS8 PROCEDURE INVOLVE?

PRIOR THE TREATMENT:

First, you will review your medical history with the doctor, to ensure you are suitable for the treatment, and she will medically examine the areas to be treated and explain the procedure, aftercare, all possible complications, and what to avoid prior to the treatment.

THE TREATMENT:

The 30-minute procedure is simple, safe, and causes minimal discomfort and minimal downtime. Numbing cream will be applied prior to the treatment area for additional comfort.

Morpheus8 applicator will be applied with 1-3 passes to the skin on the treated areas. The 24 coated pins on the applicator will penetrate into the subdermal tissue, coagulating the fat and contracting connective tissue to tighten and correct lines and wrinkles on the treated area.

POST TREATMENT CARE:

You must not touch or apply anything on the treated area for 12 hours after the procedure in order to prevent infection. Specific after-care instructions will be provided during your visit.

THE PERFECT PATIENT FOR MORPHEUS8

The ideal candidate is someone who is just starting to see the signs of aging and is looking to prevent the development of saggy skin. It’s a great way to combat the breakdown of skin elasticity as you age.

It is also a great procedure for someone who is looking for a more subtle antiaging treatment, with results improving over time, rather than a plastic surgery procedure.

WHEN YOU’LL SEE MORPHEUS8 RESULTS

You will see results as quickly as your first Morpheus8 treatment, but it is recommended to have at least 3 sessions spaced roughly 4 to 6 weeks apart to see full results. Your results will continue to improve up to three months after treatment.

As for downtime after each session, expect to see some mild swelling and redness that looks and feels like a sunburn for three to four days following treatment, plus some possible flaking as the tiny punctures from the microneedle heal.

WHAT KIND OF POST-PROCEDURE AFTERCARE IS REQUIRED

Avoid touching and applying any cream or makeup on the treated areas for 12 hours. After that, you should moisturize the treatment area with a highly hydrating cream and avoid direct sun exposure.

Make-up can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment.
