Morpheus8 Microneedling

You’ve probably seen us post about Morpheus8 micro‑needling. It’s one of the favorite treatments of our clients and staff and it yields incredible results, as the gold‑standard in RF micro‑needling. Since we get so many questions about this procedure, we thought it was a great opportunity to do a deep dive into this innovative device! Keep reading to learn all about Morpheus8 micro‑needling!

What Is Micro‑Needling?

RF Micro‑needling is a great non‑surgical treatment that uses tiny stainless steel needles to stimulate your body’s own collagen‑producing capabilities to speed up cellular turnover, resurface your texture, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm up skin and even fade old acne scars and pigmentation. It’s also safe for all ethnicities and really has no downtime!

There are two types of micro‑needling ‑ pen‑based and radiofrequency (RF). Morpheus8 is an RF device, making it more advanced as it uses heat to cause collagen contraction, which helps remodel collagen and skin. We prefer RF devices to pen‑based devices, but if you’d like to learn more about them, check out our other guide “All About Microneedling”!

What Makes Morpheus8 different?

Morpheus8 is considered the gold standard of RF micro‑needling. It can be used all over the face and body and goes up to 7mm deep in the tissue (on the body) while other devices on the market only go about 3mm deep. The micro‑needles send RF energy deep into the skin to create small lesions. These lesions kickstart the skin’s natural healing response causing collagen production and leaving you with fresh, supple, tightened skin without the downtime of lasers!

Like we said before, Morpheus8 can be used on the face AND body. For the face, it can help treat sagging skin, uneven skin tone & texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and even sun damage. For the body, it can achieve full body tightening, smooth cellulite and improve texture. Pretty amazing, right?

What to Expect From Morpheus8

So, what is treatment like? At the start of your session, a topical numbing cream will be applied to avoid any pricking sensations. We will also offer you ProNox for added comfort. Treatment lasts about 30‑60 minutes and you’ll have full rejuvenation for the face or body parts you choose to have treated. After treatment you may experience some tenderness or swelling, but this will subside after a few hours. Morpheus8 is safe to use on all skin types with little to no risk of residual skin darkening that often happens with darker skin tones.

There is no downtime but you may have some redness, itchiness, dotting or swelling for one to three days. You’ll want to avoid sun exposure immediately after treatment for a few days and always use SPF 50+.

You’ll notice results within weeks of your first treatment, with skin looking fuller and more supple with a series of three treatments. Overall, it takes up to three months to see the full effects. Expect to see skin tightening, smoothed fine lines and wrinkles, fuller and more vibrant skin. These results will last up to 12 months!
