What is Morpheus 8?

Morpheus 8 is an innovative skincare treatment that employs fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy to promote the production of collagen. This treatment targets the deeper layers of the skin, where collagen and fat are produced.

Furthermore, Morpheus 8 is considered minimally invasive because it distributes fractionated RF energy through a matrix of microneedles, which results in minimal downtime, if any.

Benefits of Morpheus 8

Due to the nature of the treatments and the results it produces, Morpheus 8 is considered a safe and effective alternative to rejuvenate the skin. Some of its benefits include:

  • Significant reduction of wrinkles, deep lines, and age spots
  • Results in plumper, firmer skin
  • Suitable for combination with other treatments
  • Promotes the production of fat and collagen
  • Produces radiant, youthful appearance
  • Can be used on all skin types

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Skin discoloration
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Sagging, dull skin

Results and Recovery Expectations

Morpheus 8 is a minimally invasive procedure, so it does not require extensive aftercare or downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities right away and avoid strenuous activities for a few days. The results will be more noticeable about three weeks after the procedure, but the skin can continue to show visible improvement for up to three months.

Risks of Morpheus 8

RF energy is regarded as an effective and safe skincare treatment. Patients tend to experience mild side-effects, if any. Some of these include:

  • Micro lesions, but these are common and should recede within a day or two
  • Slight skin redness
  • Patients can not wear makeup until two days after the procedure
