What is Morpheus8?
MORPHEUS8 is a non-surgical fractionated ablative micro-needling treatment. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and we start to notice fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Using radiofrequency, a MORPHEUS8 treatment stimulates collagen production to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body. The Morpheus8 technology delivers RF heat to the deeper layers of the skin creating subdermal adipose tissue remodeling, transforming your complexion and restoring more youthful facial skin.
MORPHEUS8 delivers clinically proven RF energy to multiple treatment depths (0.5mm – 7mm) to increase collagen production.
Common indications for MORPHEUS8 treatments include acne scars, wrinkles, sagging skin, stretch marks.
How does Morpheus8 work?
MORPHEUS8 combines radio frequency technology, needling, and fractional treatments to address a variety of skincare problems. Tiny needles penetrate the skin and heat the tissue to stimulate the production of collagen.
Who is a candidate for Morpheus8?
If you are looking to reduce the signs of aging signs of aging and are not ready to undergo a more invasive treatment, MORPHEUS8 might be an option for you.

What are the risks?
Possible side effects of the treatment include:
- Local pain, skin redness (erythema), swelling (edema), damage to the natural skin texture (crust, blister, burn), change of skin pigmentation (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation), and scarring.
- Although these effects are rare and expected to be temporary, redness and swelling may last up to 3 weeks, and are part of a normal reaction to the treatment.
- Burns and resulting pigmentation change and scarring are rare and may happen in dark skin that is not taken care according to instructions.
- Tiny scabs appear on the face for a few days as part of a normal healing, however make-up may be applied as soon as 1-3 days after the session to mask them and residual redness.
Any adverse reaction should be reported immediately.
