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?
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.
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.
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.
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:

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:
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.
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.
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.
