Morpheus8, Powerful RF Burst Skin Tightening and Fat Remodeling

Morpheus8 Skin Tightening

Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge micro-needling technology tool geared toward the skin tightening and rejuvenation using radiofrequency energy. All skin types, even those with darker skin types, can receive this FDA-approved treatment modality. With Morpheus8, patients can get more supple, elastic skin that is smoother and firmer. Other benefits of the treatment include the improvement in cellulites and wrinkles.  Patients frequently see effects after just one session, however 3 sessions one month apart are recommended for the best results.  With collagen stimulation over time, the best outcomes are usually seen between three and six months later.  Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency technology that also remodels “subdermal adipose tissue” thru going down to 4mm on face and 8mm on the body thru directed burst of energy to the targeted area of treatment.  For a smoother, and lifted appearance, this fractional treatment goes deep into the skin and fat [1].

Why Does The Skin Lose Its Freshness With Age?

Our skin loses its collagen repair capability with age and gradually loses its elasticity causing wrinkles.  This leads to the ‘sag’ or creepy skin that frequently feels dry or rough in the feel and texture [2].

What Is Fractional Radiofrequency?

A potent method of skin regeneration known as fractional radiofrequency (FRF) sends microthermal flashes deep into the skin and subcutaneous tissue cells. These thermal flashes are similar to those used in laser therapy, but they are milder and cause less harm to the skin. Morpheus8 can be used to address a range of skin issues, including cellulite, wrinkles, sagging, and fat migration with gravity.[1].  All types of skin, including skin with a lot of melanin, can be treated with FRF energy. Due to the fact that it sends brief bursts of thermal energy deep within the dermis, FRF energy is safe for dark skin. FRF energy doesn’t directly target pigmentation like laser treatments do, which makes it the safest option for people with darker skin tones [3].

The Advantages of Morpheus8? Skin Rejuvenation!

The patients with concerns about sagging skin can now have firmer skin with improved elasticity owing to the Morpheus8 in a few months.  Previously, the standard treatment for skin laxity has been surgical excision of the excess saggy tissue, which, more often than not, led to great clinical results.  However, Morpheus8 now makes the similar skin tightening possible without any surgery. Morpheus8 treats face, neck, arms, legs, knees, abdomen and back.

Are You A Good Candidate For Morpheus8?

Patients with skin conditions such as cellulite, wide pores, sun damage, wrinkles, creases, and fine lines are the best fit for FRF [5] and have a 90% satisfaction rate with the procedure [4]. If you have any of these complaints, you have been deemed a good candidate for the FRF, and you can book an appointment and anticipate good procedure outcomes.

The best outcomes, however, are obtained by patients with reasonable expectations; for instance, if you have deeper wrinkles that have been present for a longer time, you could require additional treatments to get the desired results. If you prefer a procedure with a minimal downtime, Morpheus8 might be the best option for you, successfully restoring skin tone and elasticity with very little recovery time.

The First-Very Informative- Consultation!

Your aesthetic concerns and intended outcomes are discussed as your skin laxity and face/body contour is evaluated during the consultation.  Any possible risks such as bleeding tendency or history of poor wound healing gets fully evaluated.  Benefits and risks of Morpheus8 face and body are discussed in detail and all questions are answered.

What To Expect Prior To Procedure?

It is crucial that the patient reads all of the information offered for the process in preparation for Morpheus8 therapy. Before the procedure, make sure you remove any makeup or other cosmetics you may be using. For a few days before your treatment, stay out of the sun. At least 48 hours before the procedure, stop using blood-thinning drugs, including aspirin, ibuprofen, and antibiotics. For a few days before and after the treatment, refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco. Patient gets numbing cream applied to face for 1 hour prior to the procedure.

During The Morpheus8 Procedure

The skin is treated using a portable device with many microneedles and FRF energy beams. A well-controlled FRF energy pulse is applied in the form of heat that warms and tightens deeper layers of the dermis as the microneedles enter the skin. Depending on the area of the treated region, the entire procedure usually takes only 45-60 minutes. You may anticipate a warm sensation on the skin throughout the procedure when the energy beam is delivered into the dermis. Treatment is well tolerated by most of patients.

What To Expect After Morpheus8 Procedure?

After the procedure, some clients experience minor redness of the skin. Skin redness usually goes away after 2 days.  Patient should avoid the sun any much as possible for one week wearing sunblock at all times.  It is also important to keep the skin moisturized for faster recovery.  Strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and using hot tubs, saunas, or steam rooms, should be avoided for at least a week following the surgery, as they might irritate or inflame the skin.


The effects of Morpheus8 are often immediately noticeable but become increasingly more starting 6 weeks post procedure. By 6 to 9 months, patient’s collagen stimulation is at it’s peak.  Depending on the patient’s age and lifestyle choices, Morpheus8 results can last up to 2 years.

Combination Treatment?

Morpheus8 can be combined with, PRP, exosome and other skin boosters for intensifying the collagen boost and skin rejuvenation.
