Morpheus8 skin treatment

People on social media (especially on TikTok) have been raving about their results from a Morpehus8 treatment. They’re claiming clearer and tighter skin from this highly advanced microneedling treatment. But what makes this technique different than other microneedling procedures? 

What is Morpheus8 exactly? And why all the buzz?

We share everything there is to know about Morpheus8. How does this skin tightening treatment work? And what makes this method of microneedling different than a standard technique.  

What Is Morpheus8? 

Morpheus8 is an advanced microneedling treatment combined with radiofrequency technology. The microneedling on its own stimulates a natural healing process from the micro punctures, which cause increased production of collagen. A vital protein the body naturally produces for the structural and vitality of the skin. The radiofrequency component to this treatment delivers heat deep into layers of the skin, multiplying the skin cells’ intensity to form firmer and tighter.  

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

The Morpheus8 device is the only cosmetic tool that combines microneedling and radiofrequency together in one treatment. The device has 24 gold-plated needles that can reach the depths of 4mm, deeper than the standard microneedling devices that only go 2 mm. The deeper the penetration of the needles, the more effective change is achieved with the skin’s foundational structure. And as the device is “stamping” tiny punctures into the skin, it’s sending radiofrequency energy and heat for more robust skin cell production with stronger elasticity and collagen.  

What Does Morpheus8 Help Solve?

Our skin goes through many changes due to aging, hormones, pregnancy, medical conditions, and even the environment can have an effect. Morpheus8 addresses a variety of skin conditions and damages such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Acne scars
  • Deep lines and creases
  • Discoloration or pigmentation
  • Enlarged PoresStretch Marks
  • Sun Damage
  • Sagging skin

Morpheus8 treatment is typically used for facial rejuvenation but can be used on other parts of the body: 

  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Arms

What to Expect with a Morpheus8 Procedure- Step by Step

A Morpheus8 treatment is a minimally invasive procedure performed as an outpatient doctor’s visit. 

Here is a step-by-step guide of what to expect during a Morpheus8 treatment: 

  • Numbing cream is applied to the treated areas 45 minutes before the procedure begins.
  • The numbing cream is washed off the face.
  • The cosmetic surgeon places the Morpheus8 device perpendicular to the skin.
  • The surgeon will adjust the needle penetration and radiofrequency strength depending on the treated area.
  • Some medical offices may apply plasma-rich serum to the treated areas after the session.

After the treatment, patients may experience temporary swelling, redness, irritation or itchiness, bleeding, or bruising. However, most of these side effects can be managed with an ice pack, and the symptoms do not last longer than a day or two after the procedure. 

A patient will start noticing a subtle difference in their skin two to three weeks from the procedure and will see the full results after six to eight weeks from the initial treatment. It is recommended to have a minimum of three sessions that are spaced out every four to six weeks. 

How Long Does Morpheus8 Last?

Unfortunately, the results of a Morpheus8 procedure are not permanent. Patients are recommended to maintain the look every six to eight months. However, the results from the treatments will result in fewer wrinkles and lines, clearer and tighter skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for Morpheus8 Microneedling? 

An ideal patient for Morpheus8 is a person with noticeably aging skin with wrinkles, unevenness, and discoloration. A Morpheus8 treatment works well with all skin types and tones. 

Here are a few more conditions that make for an ideal candidate:    

  • Non-smoker
  • Good physical health
  • Realistic expectations 

Morpheus8 is not the ideal treatment for people: 

  • Severe skin laxity or wrinkles
  • Active acne
  • Prone to skin infections or irritations

Final Takeaway 

We understand why so many people are raving about this skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses practical measures of microneedling with highly advanced technology from radiofrequency. This technique goes deep to change the skin’s structural foundation to form clearer, brighter, and tighter. It’s like hitting a reset button for your skin, except it’s with tiny needles. 

If you are interested in this highly advanced microneedling treatment, consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon experienced with utilizing a Morpheus8 device and technique.
