Improve Tone and Texture of the Face and Body – Microneedling Combined with the Power of RF Thermal Technology with Morpheus 8

During the aging process, our skin slowly starts to lose the healthy supply of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastins we once had when we were younger. This results in the appearance of wrinkles, and a reduction of skin volume and elasticity causing our skin to sag. As we get older, most of would like to slow down this process and continue to enjoy smooth skin and defined contours.

Many non-surgical techniques have been developed in recent years to address skin-related concerns for patients who are not yet ready or willing to consider surgical solutions. Microneedling treatments create tiny punctures, or micro lesions, in the superficial layer of the skin to stimulate a healing response causing an increase in the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. Radio-frequency treatments, like Forma and Fractora, are proven to generate collagen remodeling with their use of thermal energy.

Morpheus Technology

The newest and most innovative micro-needling device on the market.
It’s the first in its category to go as deep as 4mm and cause subdermal adipose remodeling.

No other device has that depth of penetration
• M8 causes fat melting (if at 4mm) and tightening never seen before with external devices
• Tightens the skin and remodels the jowls
• Improves skin texture: acne scars, wrinkles etc.

What is Morpheus 8?

Morpheus 8 combines the two technologies of microneedling and RF to deliver the thermal energy of radio-frequency waves to deeper layers of the skin and tissue with adjustable microneedles. This combination allows RF energy to reach both the dermis and epidermis for maximum results.

The Morpheus 8 is FDA approved as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device, or SARD, unlike standard microneedling treatments. The Morpheus 8 treatment can adjust the ultra-fine microneedles to a depth of up to 4 millimeters, deeper than any other microneedling device currently available.

Morpheus 8 – Microneedling with RF treats:

Acne scars
Poor skin texture
Sun damage
Deep lines and creases
Mild sagging or jowls
Enlarged pores

Is Morpheus 8 painful?

Our patients’ comfort during treatment is a top priority. Prior to treatment a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin. After 30 minutes the patient is ready to receive treatment. The patient will experience a warming sensation to the skin with little discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Patients may experience some mild swelling and redness, and some may experience temporary bruising which will subside in a matter of days. Some patients may also see some tiny micro lesions on the skin from the microneedling which will flake off in a few days.

How many treatments do I need?

Some patients can achieve their desired results in one to three treatments. Others may opt for a series of treatments spread out over several months. Our staff will consult with each patient to determine the ideal number of treatments for each individual.

Can I combine Morpheus 8 with FaceTite or Fractora?

Yes! These two treatments are often used together. This combination is normally referred to as EmbraceRF. EmbraceRF targets the lower third of the face as well as the adipose fat that is responsible for creating look of jowls, excess fat in the neck and chin, and other signs of facial aging. This combination results in an even more sculpted appearance and pleasing facial contour.

Combining Morpheus 8 and treatments like FaceTite or Fractora (I.e., Embrace RF) may be ideal for:

Patients who wish to lift and tighten their appearance but don’t yet qualify for facelift surgery. EmbraceRF offers an ideal alternative to achieve younger-looking skin without surgery.

Patients who are interested in achieving tighter, smoother skin but do not want to undergo surgery.

Patients who have had facelift surgery in the past and wish to maintain their results. Radio frequency treatments may serve as an essential component to ongoing care.

How soon can I wear make-up after my treatment?

Most patients who receive a Morpheus 8 treatment can wear make-up in 2 or 3 days. Patients who opt to combine Morpheus 8 with FaceTite or Fractora may need to wait up a little longer.

Can Morpheus 8 be used in areas other than the face?

Absolutely! Morpheus 8 works well on the arms, abdomen, and legs. Our skilled team will let you know if Morpheus 8 is right for you.
