Microneedling Fractional Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation
Morpheus8 is an advanced microneedling treatment developed to stimulate remodeling in the adipose tissue of the dermis. Designed by InMode Aesthetics, a leading manufacturer in the radiofrequency (RF) technology arena, Morpheus8 is the only device that combines radiofrequency (RF) with the microneedling technique. On its own, microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus8, collagen increase is only the icing on the cake. By inserting radiofrequency (RF) energy to tissue approximately 4mm deep, this device prompts tissue remodeling that includes thickening and tightening.
Morpheus8 helps to improve the appearance of:
✓ Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
✓ Deep lines and ceases
✓ Enlarged pores
✓ Excess face and neck fat
✓ Mild face and neck sagging and jowling
✓ Stretch marks
✓ Sun damage
✓ Uneven or rough skin texture
A Morpheus8 treatment is an outpatient procedure. Neither anesthesia nor intravenous (IV) sedation is used because patients feel no significant discomfort during the procedure. The procedure is performed using the following steps:
▸ A topical numbing cream is applied to the area(s) of the face that the patient wishes to improve
▸ A device delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy through micro-pins is used to deliver the radiofrequency (RF) energy within the skin surface
The radiofrequency (RF) device has tips with various depths. The tips and pins are selected to increase or decrease the amount of radiofrequency (RF) the patient’s skin receives. This customized treatment approach allows the specialist to provide patients with maximum results. Total procedure time is usually one and a half hours, depending on the size of the skin area treated.
Morpheus8 can treat the following areas:
✓ Frown lines
✓ Nasal labial fold lines
✓ Troublesome aging lines on the cheeks and neck
Following their procedure, patients may return to normal daily activities. The minimal amount of swelling and bruising that is associated with the procedure is easily controlled using ice packs. Patients may feel that their face is a bit tight after their procedure. If present, this feeling will go away a few days. Total recovery time for a Morpheus8 treatment can often be less than an hour.

Key Benefits of Morpheus8:
✓ Morpheus8 delivers the deepest fractional treatments available, penetrating subdermal tissue up to 8mm (7mm + 1mm thermal profile).
✓ Dual Handpieces allow for increased treatment functionality: Morpheus8 for smaller treatment areas and Morpheus8 Body for larger and deeper tissue treatments.
✓ Four fractional tips with different microneedle configurations (Prime 12 pin, Resurfacing 24 pin, Morpheus8 24 pin, and Body 40 pin) deliver clinically proven RF energy to multiple treatment depths (0.5mm – 7mm).
✓ Safe on skin types up to and including VI with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is common with other resurfacing methods.
Patients will notice that their face looks much better after their procedure. Over the course of recovery, collagen tightens and patients see improvements in their facial appearance. Their face is lifted and volume is added to lax areas. Skin complexion also improves. Six short weeks after their procedure, patients will see their final results. A Morpheus8 treatment or series of treatments can make a patient look decidedly younger.
Candidates for a Morpheus8 treatment usually fall into two categories:
▸ Men and women between the ages of thirty and fifty-five who have visible signs of aging that they would like to improve
▸ Patients who have active acne or acne scars that do not respond to oral and/or topical medications
Treatments are usually reserved for healthy, non-smoking patients with no other serious medical conditions. The definitive way for patients to determine if they are candidates for a Morpheus8 treatment is to schedule a consultation.
Morpheus8 Frequently Ask Questions
What is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Morpheus8 can be used on any areas that can benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal. The most commonly treated areas include the face, periorbital area, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
Your practitioner will recommend the optimal number of sessions to be performed based on your personal objectives. Treatment times and frequency will be specifically tailored to obtain the optimal results.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
What Is the Benefit of Fractionated Energy?
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a scientifically proven method to remodel and rebuild collagen. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
Can Anyone Use Morpheus8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated.
Can This Be Used in Combination With Other Treatments?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Morpheus8 can also be combined with other lnMode energy treatments or injectables to achieve more extensive results.
When Can I Put Make-Up on After Treatment?
Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness depending on treatment parameters.
What Kind of Post Procedure Care is Required?
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also slow the aging process.
