What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is an FDA-approved non-surgical fractional therapy that uses micro-needles to deliver radiofrequency under the skin. The given
controlled damage provides skin healing, reduces wrinkles, and rebuilds new collagen, which our skin loses over the years.
Morpheus8 works similarly to micro-needling, a dermapen procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the skin to generate new collagen and tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Although it works like a micro-needling tool, Morpheus8’s 24 coated pins penetrate the subdermal tissue, thickening the fat and contracting connective tissue to tighten and rejuvenate the treated area rather than pricking the skin. This device also incorporates radiofrequency, which triggers collagen and elastin production at a deeper level that micro-needling cannot reach.
Moreover, the Morpheus8 treatment delivers uniform results for all skin types without creating thermal damage to your dermis. The innovative technology also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a side effect of some resurfacing techniques.
How is Morpheus8 applied?
Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area(s) on the face that the patient wishes to improve. Then, Morpheus8 delivers radiofrequency energy through microneedles to deliver the radiofrequency energy within the skin surface. The radiofrequency device has spikes with various depths. The doctor selects the tips and pins depending on the area.
