Morpheus8: Advanced Microneedling with Amazing Results

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

The process and science behind skincare is ever changing. New to the playing field is the revolutionary skincare treatment known as Morpheus8 – a new twist on the highly beloved microneedling process.

Never heard of it? That’s ok! We’ve laid out everything you need to know about the treatment and how it can benefit you and your skin.

What is Morpheus8?

The easiest way to describe Morpheus8 is this: imagine the process of a microneedling treatment, but in the case of Morpheus8, those microscopic needles are equipped to deliver potent waves of radiofrequency treatments deep into the layers of your skin. The combination of these two skincare services results in better outcomes overall for those pesky problem areas you’re trying to tackle.

What areas are treated by Morpheus8?

The Morpheus8 treatment’s overall goal is to improve skin texture, giving you youthful looking, healthy, happy skin. This non-invasive service targets popular skin concerns such as acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, deep lines, and visible signs of aging throughout common areas surrounding the face and neck. 

Can anyone receive a Morpheus8 treatment?

Morpheus8 is an inclusive treatment that caters to almost everyone regardless of age or skin color. However, anyone pregnant or nursing is unable to receive treatment, as well as candidates who recently received a chemical peel, BOTOX or fillers (within 2 weeks), or who are actively using retinol. You must stop the use of retinol or similar chemical exfoliants at least 7 days before your scheduled appointment.


Are other treatments able to combine with Morpheus8?

If the combination of two different types of skincare treatments wasn't good enough for you, we’re happy to be the ones to let you know that the Morpheus8 treatment can also be combined with a number of other facial rejuvenation treatments. If you’re interested in elevating the service, consider discussing what options may work best for your skin type and skin concerns.

What to expect from a Morpheus8 session

The Morpheus8 device boasts an impressive capacity to reach depths of up to 7mm into subdermal tissue, surpassing its counterparts. This unique attribute is said to deliver more noticeable results at a faster pace. What sets it apart is its adaptability—the ability to fine-tune needle depth and radiofrequency energy intensity based on the treatment area and goals. This versatility ensures that unintended fat loss is minimized, unless specifically targeting excess fat, such as in the treatment of a double chin.

How to prepare for a Morpheus8 appointment

  1. Retinol and Exfoliants Pause: Refrain from using retinol and glycolic/chemical exfoliants for a minimum of 5 days before your session.

  2. Hydrating Routine: Begin a nourishing skin hydration routine a few days prior, with a focus on recommended ingredients like hyaluronic acid.

  3. Sun Safety: Minimize sun exposure significantly at least one week in advance to prevent skin sensitivity.

  4. Pre-Treatment Day Rituals: On the treatment day, maintain your usual shower routine, ensuring to cleanse your face and neck. However, abstain from applying makeup, powders, lotions, oils, or any other products to the designated treatment area. This sets the stage for an optimal Morpheus8 experience.

The steps to a Morpheus8 session

Expect your appointment to follow this rough outline:

  1. Duration: Each session lasts between 15 to 60 minutes, influenced by the treated area's size and your provider's expertise.

  2. Preparation: Your provider initiates the process by cleansing and preparing your skin.

  3. Numbing Process: The treatment area receives a layer of topical numbing cream or gel, requiring up to an hour for full effectiveness.

  4. Customization with Morpheus8: The device empowers providers to tailor radiofrequency heat depth through microneedles, addressing specific dermal layers and skin concerns. Before full application, a test spot ensures no adverse reactions.

  5. Application Technique: Your provider systematically stamps the handpiece over your skin, allowing microneedles to penetrate and deliver radiofrequency energy. The number of passes and energy amount vary based on the treatment area and goals.

  6. Sensitivity Check: Certain areas may be more sensitive, and if discomfort arises, your provider can adjust settings or pause for local anesthetic or pain relief.

How long does it take to see results from Morpheus8?

While you do see great results from just one treatment session, for most skin concerns, it’s recommended to have at least three consecutive sessions. Your results can be improved by taking your esthetician’s advice, and following a dedicated skincare routine that targets the same concerns.

Aftercare for Morpheus8

Aftercare following Morpheus8 is fairly minimal. Slight redness and swelling may appear for a day or two, but no longer. Your face is tender and sensitive for a few hours after, so keep it clean and avoid touching your face for at least a few hours. Your esthetician provides recommendations and healing cleansers to aid recovery, and get the most out of your treatment. You should always use sunscreen in your daily routine, but especially after a Morpheus8 session.

The benefits of Morpheus8 treatment

Now that we’ve established a basic understanding of what Morpheus 8 is, let’s take some time to look into how the non surgical procedure gets you the desired outcome of healthy, youthful skin. 

Morpheus8 reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are one of the tell tale signs of aging on the face and body. By utilizing Morpheus8’s ability to create microchannels in the skin while also sending an electromagnetic frequency through those channels, collagen production skyrockets. As collagen generates, lines and wrinkles soften with every session. 

Discoloration from acne is targeted

Another common enemy that resides on the surface of our skin is hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Through consistent treatments, these signs of scarring and discoloration will begin to fade leaving your natural beauty to shine! 

Stretch marks fade over treatment sessions

When extra collagen is introduced to parts of the body affected by stretch marks, the skin can transform and slowly disguise any unwanted signs of stretching. No longer will you have to hide these areas of concern, feeling embarrassed by something as natural and common as stretchmarks. 

Large pores shrink with Morpheus8

In addition to the other benefits, something you can look forward to following your treatment is smaller pores. In as little as one treatment, large pores shrink, significantly reducing in size to give your skin a smoother complexion.  

Morpheus8 tightens skin, making your skin look firm

Double chin? I don't think so! As your skin heals and your body responds to the micro-injuries created by the treatment, your skin will tighten, removing that unflattering babyface and firming up that jawline.

Your skin will look younger and glowing

Don't settle for dull, exhausted skin. When lotions and serums only get you so far, you can trust this phenomenal treatment to elevate your skincare game leaving you looking younger and glowing from the inside out.
