Innovative Facial Contouring

Morpheus 8 is a new microneedling treatment developed to be more effective than other types of microneedling treatment.  Morpheus 8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency with the microneedling technique. On its own, microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus 8, collagen increase is only the icing on the cake. By inserting radiofrequency energy to tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening.

What is the Morpheus 8 treatment like?

We conduct treatment using a local anesthetic to decrease the sensation of both the microneedles and radiofrequency energy penetration. After the topical numbing cream has desensitized the skin, we begin treatment using a small handheld applicator. The tip of the applicator has several tiny needles that are powered with radiofrequency via the device platform. The treating clinician places the applicator against the skin for a few seconds while energy is inserted through the needles. The applicator is then removed from the surface and placed onto the adjacent area. The motion is somewhat like a stamping technique rather than moving the applicator across the skin.

How many Morpheus 8 treatments are usually needed?

It begins to stimulate change immediately after the first treatment. Depending on the extent of improvement a patient desires, a series of 2 to 4 treatments may be considered. It is our intent to recommend only what a patient needs to reach their desired outcome. We conduct a thorough consultation and skin assessment to fully understand each person’s needs.

What is the recovery time with Morpheus 8?

Patients can expect mild redness for a day or two following treatment. Slight swelling may also occur. These side effects are typically mild and may last a few days or up to a week.  Patients are generally asked to refrain from wearing makeup for 24 hours.

Will my face be red after Morpheus 8?

Occasionally, mild redness can occur following treatment. Sunscreen is highly recommended.  

Is Morpheus 8 painful?

We do our best to make every treatment comfortable. Microneedling with radiofrequency may feel slightly uncomfortable in certain areas. However, our use of topical numbing cream makes treatment much more pleasant than many patients expect.
