What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 COMBINES microneedling AND Radiofrequency energy. It delivers RF energy into the skin through an array of tiny needles. The treatment works so well because it activates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. The combination of micro-injuries from the needles and heat (RF energy) triggers the release of growth factors which initiate the skin’s own healing process. This INCREASES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION. The increased and restructured collagen RESURFACES, RESTORES, and REJUVENATES the skin. This is how Morpheus8 provides younger appearing skin with improved tone and texture. The skin continues repairing itself for months after the treatment is complete.

Before and After

What is the Benefit of Facial Rejuvenation with Morpheus8?


Of all the methods that can reverse the signs of aging, there is no better treatment than Morpheus8 for skin resurfacing and facial rejuvenation. Morpheus8 is like microneedling on steroids. It will renew your skin and take years off your appearance as it tightens and lifts your skin.

Morpheus8 provides anti-aging improvements through fractional ABLATION AND SKIN RESURFACING. Fractional ablation leaves portions of healthy, intact skin while creating controlled injury to other parts of the skin. The untreated skin between the ablated areas promotes FASTER HEALING of the treated areas.

Morpheus8 was developed to provide patients SMOOTHER, BRIGHTER, TIGHTER SKIN. The results are superior to those obtained by fully fractional or ablative (vaporizing) lasers. Since there is less skin injury with Morpheus8 than with lasers, there is LESS DISCOMFORT and LESS DOWNTIME.

Morpheus8 is safe for all skin colors and skin types.

Where can Microneedling with Radiofrequency be used?

The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and décolleté. Some patients focus treatment around and under the eyes, or on smile lines, forehead, cheeks, and mouth area. Any areas with wrinkles, loose skin, scars, discoloration, and texture problems can be treated.

How does Microneedling with Radiofrequency Energy work?

Morpheus8 delivers precisely controlled amounts of Radiofrequency (RF) energy through the needles into the skin. The RF energy can be applied just at the tip (coated needles) or all along with the needles (uncoated needles). The type of needles used depends on the goal of treatment and the patient skin type.

Applying energy all along the needles creates ablative micro-holes in the skin surrounded by large areas of untreated skin. The energy released from the needles passes from needle tip to needle tip which causes heating deep within the dermis. The combination of controlled injuries (from needles and heat) stimulates the formation of NEW COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN. This procedure causes the skin to TIGHTEN, SMOOTH AND CLEAR as the tiny holes initiate the skin’s natural healing process.

With coated pins, the energy is applied only at the needle tips. This allows us to treat darker skin without the risks of scarring or pigmentation changes. This tightens and smooths the treated areas resulting in more healthy, natural, and younger looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Morpheus8 uses a sterile, single-use disposable treatment head with a grid pattern of 24 microneedles. The treatment area is numbed with a topical cream. The Morpheus8 applicator inserts the microneedles briefly into the skin. This process is repeated in patterns to entirely cover the treatment area.

Visible results are seen within 2-3 days after treatment. After TWO WEEKS very noticeable results will be apparent.
