What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a skin treatment that helps to stimulate collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis, especially the SMAS layer. It aims to rejuvenate the face and body by targeting these deeper layers, resulting in a more youthful, radiant look. Morpheus 8 treatment encourages the body to repair layers beneath the skin, focusing on activating fibroblast cells that transform the basic components of collagen into fibres to enhance the skin’s elasticity.

InMode’s Morpheus 8 combines microneedling with Radio Frequency (RF) heat stimulation. Microneedling involves small needles piercing the skin, which, when combined with RF heat, tightens and contours both the skin and the underlying fat. This dual action promotes the body’s natural healing and stimulates fibroblast cells. Depending on your needs, Morpheus treatment can be adjusted. At lower intensities, it improves skin texture, tightens, and reduces scars. At higher settings, Morpheus8 sculpts under-the-skin fat, lifts sagging areas, and even restores volume, offering enhanced definition.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 will the treatment work?

Every patient will have a Consultation prior to treatment to discuss any concerns and assess your suitability. We will fully explain the treatment plan and seek your consent for treatment. The procedure will take between 30-60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. You will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area prior to treatment. After treatment we will give you aftercare instructions and advice for moisturising and protecting the treated area with SPF.

Can Morpheus8 be combined 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.

What downtime to expect?

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.

After the Morpheus8 Microneedling Radiofrequency procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. It is anticipated that the skin’s redness will diminish greatly after 24-72 hours following the treatment. There may be peeling of the skin in some people in certain areas of the face which were treated. With radiofrequency, mild swelling is normal and should dissipate within 24-72 hours. Generally, after 3 days the skin will return to a near-normal appearance. Short term pinkness or redness of the skin where the treatment is performed is common. Micro-bruising and a sandpaper like texture to the skin is normal usually lasting 2-7 days, however some cases have lasted 2-4 weeks.

Post-Procedure Care

Precautions must be taken in the following conditions and circumstances: discontinue auto-immune therapies or retinoid (Retin-A) or other forms of skin treatment 24 hours prior to procedures under care and directions of a physician; active acne, rosacea or other inflammatory condition; open wounds; facial outbreaks such as herpes simplex where medications must be taken per doctor’s instructions; metal allergies or skin allergies; skin medications that would affect the characteristics of the skin 2 months prior to the treatment; facelift or eye lift surgery in the last year; dermabrasion, remodeling, deep chemical peels or any surgical procedure on the treatment area within previous 3 months; Botox, Collagen, fat or other methods of augmentations with injected materials in the treatment area in past 6 months; sunburned skin in last 2 weeks or someone who has excessively tanned in past 2 weeks; Fitzpatrick skin types V-Vl.

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.
