Morpheus8 is a safe, effective, and non-surgical treatment for full body skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and fat reduction of stubborn areas. It uses minimally invasive fractional radiofrequency energy (RF) to penetrate the skin deeper than other microneedling devices, triggering the skin's natural healing response to promote skin tightening and lifting.
The effects of Morpheus8 combines two clinically proven treatments-microneedling and minimally invasive radiofrequency treatment-to trigger collagen and elastin production, tighten fibers and contour fat. While ordinary microneedling can only target skin to a depth of 1.5 to 2 millimeters, the Morpheus8 is tailored to each patient's needs and the depths can be adjusted anywhere from 0.5mm to as deep as 8mm. This allows fat contouring at deeper depths while superficial depths target skin rejuvenation. Morpheus8 can treat the entire face and neck in one treatment, from delicate tissue around the eye to thicker skin around the abdomen.

Benefits of Morpheus8

Morpheus8 helps improve the appearance of:

  • Excess fat in the face and neck
  • Mild sagging and jowling in the face and neck
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
  • Deep lines and creases
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Stretch Marks

What to expect during the Morpheus8 procedure

Morpheus8 is used to perform the micro needling RF treatment after numbing skin with a topical numbing cream medication. The skin is then cleansed with an antibacterial formula followed by the Morpheus8 procedure on the face or body which takes approximately 20-30 minutes.


Q: Am I a candidate for Morpheus8?

A: Morpheus8 skin resurfacing can safely benefit all skin types and tones, addressing a broad range of skin concerns.
Given its stimulating effect on collagen production, the treatment excels at improving skin texture, firming and contouring mildly sagging skin, smoothing wrinkles, and minimizing other signs of aging.
Microneedling with radiofrequency energy is also particularly effective at improving the appearance of acne scars-though avoid it if you still have active acne, since the needles can spread breakout-causing bacteria.
The microneedling aspect of Morpheus8 helps resurface the top layer of skin, so people with sun damage and dark spots should see clearer, brighter, more evenly toned skin post-treatment.
Most notably, Morpheus8 is a safe option for people with olive or brown skin tones, who might otherwise be at risk of hypo- or hyperpigmentation from other resurfacing treatments (like lasers). Your provider chooses a needle type that's safest for your skin tone, from microneedles that emanate heat along their full length to coated microneedles that emanate heat only from their very tips, to precisely target the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the skin's surface.

Q: What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated?

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Chin and upper lip
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Stomach


Morpheus8 recovery is relatively easy, with just a few days of social downtime. After your treatment, you can expect one to three days of redness, itchiness, and swelling depending on the intensity of the treatment and how quickly your body heals.
You can boost your results post-treatment with proper skin care. We recommend:

  • Use skin care products that contain growth factors, peptides, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol, as well as exfoliating cleansers and enzymatic masks, to turn over scabbing or crusting as your skin heals (avoiding any products that irritate your skin until it's had a few days of healing)
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for a few weeks and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 (ideally a physical sunscreen containing titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide) when you have to be out and about, to avoid post-procedure hyperpigmentation
Morpheus8 is considered to be a safe treatment, though you may experience some temporary side effects. Any pinpoint bleeding, scabbing, tissue swelling, or redness should subside within a few days. Pinprick marks from the needles should fade on their own within two weeks.
The treatment creates controlled microdamage, and it shouldn't leave lasting damage to your skin. However, microneedling results are very technique-dependent, and the heat from the radiofrequency energy can increase the risk of potential damage in unskilled hands.

Some people begin to see Morpheus8 benefits, in terms of improved skin tone and texture, within a few days of their first treatment.

However, you'll need to be patient for more significant changes. New collagen and elastin takes time to develop, so full results will be apparent about three months after a series of one to three treatment sessions.

Morpheus8 results are not permanent. Results can last about a year, provided you use high-quality skin care and regularly wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30+.
The skin will continue to age, so you'll need an annual follow-up treatment to maintain ramped-up collagen production and all its youthful benefits.
