What is Morpheus
Resurface & remodel your face and body
Morpheus uses innovative radiofrequency technology to deliver full-body fractional skin treatments. With its versatile design, Morpheus can treat any area of the body that would benefit from resurfacing and subdermal renewal.
Whether your skin is suffering from wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, scarring, texture or color irregularities, or laxity, Morpheus can offer a personalized treatment to address your concerns and rejuvenate your appearance.
Unlike other beauty-enhancing procedures, such as facelifts and liposuction, this treatment is minimally invasive, requiring minimal downtime for recovery.
A non-invasive, fractional microneedling device
Morpheus is a non-invasive, fractional microneedling device that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin.
The device has a small tip with microneedles that deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin, causing minimal damage to the surface while promoting collagen growth.
This results in improved skin tone and texture, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and a more youthful appearance.
Morpheus is safe for all skin types and can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne scars, loose skin, and uneven pigmentation.

Can this be used in combination with other treatments?

Multiple treatments can be performed within the same treatment session or can be spaced a few days apart; your treatment schedule depends on what works best for you and can be determined during your initial consultation with our specialist.
What can I expect during my treatment with Morpheus8?
- After your initial consultation to determine your ideal treatment plan, your first treatment will begin with the application of a topical anesthetic to maximize your comfort during the procedure.
- A specialized matrix of microneedles will then be used to treat the target area with radiofrequency energy; this stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and promotes the remodeling of the subdermal tissues.
- Following your treatment, which typically takes less than an hour, you will be instructed on post-procedure skincare to maximize your results.
You may experience some bruising, tenderness, and minimal bleeding at the treatment site; however, due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, these symptoms typically resolve within 2-3 days. It is very important to follow your post-procedure skincare instructions in order to facilitate a quick recovery.
Is it painful?
Your comfort is of primary importance to us! Each of our patients is unique, with different levels of pain tolerance and varying levels of anxiety going into a medical procedure.
With our nitrous oxide delivery system, you are able to control how much and how frequently nitrous oxide is delivered using a mouthpiece that administers a 50/50 gas mixture containing nitrous oxide and oxygen; which means maximum relaxation and minimum discomfort.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as laughing gas, decreases anxiety, increases the sense of overall well-being, and inhibits the transmission of pain signals during a procedure. This analgesic is safe, effective, and, better still, you are able to drive yourself home following your treatment!
What kind of post-procedure care is required with Morpheus
Following your treatment procedure, you will be given detailed skincare instructions.
As a general rule, following your treatment, you will need to avoid wearing makeup until any skin irritation has resolved. Moisturizer should be applied to the treatment area, and direct exposure to the sun should be avoided. It is also recommended that patients regularly use broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis; this reduces the risk of skin cancer and also slows sun damage-related skin aging.
Is there scientific research to support this treatment?
A recent study published in the International Open Access Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that radiofrequency treatments for facial skin tightening “trigger a healing cascade that leads to stimulation of new collagen and elastin formation.” While the study acknowledges that results are not as dramatic as those that would be observed with a surgical procedure, such as liposuction or a facelift, 93% of the 247 participants in the study reported that they were satisfied with their results and would undergo the treatment again.
