What Is Morpheus 8?
Morpheus 8 is a microneedling and radio frequency device designed to contour and remodel your face and body through subdermal adipose remodeling. Considered a fractional treatment, it can penetrate deep into your skin and fat creating a sleeker and smoother appearance. You can combine Morpheus 8 with PRP for superior results.
The device combines radio frequency and microneedling procedures to create fractional resurfacing that helps to stimulate new collagen production. When the deeper layers of your skin are targeted, the building blocks reorganize, which provides natural anti-aging benefits. The dermis has minimal damage, and the process provides a mostly uniform effect.
The device will use a matrix of 24 micro pins. These pins penetrate just four millimeters into your skin, reaching your dermis. This is the layer where stimulation has been proven most effective. The energy will generate a warmth that works to hyper-activate collage production. Along with the pins, bipolar RF energy is deployed automatically to several treatment depths during the treatment process. This device’s ability to treat three levels in millisecond intervals provides more effective and efficient treatment and helps to reduce overall treatment times.
As time passes, your skin texture and complexion will improve, unveiling a more youthful and radiant appearance.
The technology used by this device is a method that has been scientifically proven effective for reducing fat and wrinkles and helping to rebuild collage to create a better skin texture while reducing deep lines and fine lines and slowing the natural aging process. After the procedure, you will look and feel great.

How to Prepare for Your Morpheus 8 Treatment
If your Morpheus 8 procedure is scheduled, there aren’t many restrictions regarding what you can and can’t take. To be safe, avoid taking herbal supplements, Aspirin, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, fish oil, and vitamin E about one week before your appointment. This will help reduce possible bruising. It may also be helpful to stop using topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone, exfoliants, and retinol 48 hours before your appointment.
Make sure to avoid using a tanning bed and sun exposure for about 24 hours before and after your treatment, but it is best to refrain from this for one to two weeks to help reduce the possibility of post-treatment lightening or darkening of your skin.

Expected Results of Morpheus 8
Some patients will see the results of the treatment after a few days. However, the full impact of the treatment will usually take about three weeks to develop. You will continue to see improvements for up to three months after the procedure is done.
It’s recommended that you schedule follow-up treatments, which can help prolong the benefits offered by the treatment. Our staff can help you with the scheduling and ensure you see the most benefits possible from the treatment you receive.
Aftercare Instructions for Morpheus 8 Treatment
Downtime after a Morpheus 8 treatment is minimal. In fact, most patients can apply makeup one to two days after the procedure. It’s important to note that you will see micro lesions several days after the treatment, and there could be slight redness in the treated areas for up to one week; however, this depends on the treatment parameters.
Directly after treatment, you should moisturize the area treated and avoid direct sun exposure. It’s also recommended that you use a broad-spectrum, quality sunscreen daily. While sunscreen helps to reduce the risk of skin cancer, it also helps to reduce wrinkles and slow down the natural aging process.
