What is Morpheus8?

A Morpheus8 treatment is an advanced skin treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology to achieve significant skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and scar remodelling. 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 downtime.


The benefits of a Morpheus8 treatment include increased collagen production, lifting and tightening your loose skin, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fading stretch marks, acne scars or surgical scars, and helping diminish fat. The common areas for this treatment include the face, under eye area, abdomen, jowls, jawline, thighs, legs and buttocks.  


Morpheus8 can be a stand-alone treatment, or PRP can be added to the treatment for a growth factor boost.  Morpheus8 treatments produce dramatic results when the final step of the treatment plan is a laser treatment to address any vascular or dark spots that remain. Morpheus8 is the best for overall skin tightening of the face, but when followed with injections of dermal filler you will truly look refreshed.

How long do the results last from Morpheus8?

Depending on your aesthetic goals, our skin care specialist will suggest a minimum of 3 (or more) treatments. You will see visible results within a few days of your first treatment, usually with texture and fine lines first. More dramatic skin tightening and fat reduction results continue to improve up to three months after treatment with your best results 6 months after.

Number of Treatments

Our skin care specialist will likely suggest more than three treatments depending on your aesthetic goals. Most clients will come annually to maintain their results.

Morpheus8 pairs well with:

    • 6 months prior, speak to your doctor about stopping Isotretinoin Accutane prescriptions for 6 months and throughout your treatment plan timeline. 

    • 3 months prior, stop facial dermabrasion, any laser resurfacing, deep chemical peel treatments, epilation, waxing or tweezing. 

    • 2 weeks prior, stop anything that causes you skin irritation (topical creams) including tanning from the sun, tanning beds, or tanning creams/sprays. 

    • 7-10 days prior and post treatment, stop use of Retinol/Vitamin A and acids like AHA, lactic, glycolic, etc. 

    • 7-10 days prior and post treatment, stop blood thinning medications if safe to do so (seek advice of your prescriber), stop ASA (aspirin), ibuprofen (i.e, Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve), herbal supplements (i.e. garlic, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, St. John’s Wort) and dietary supplements (i.e. omega 3, and vitamin E). 

    • 24 hours prior, avoid alcohol.

    • Fill in consent forms sent to your email.

    • Arrive with clean skin (no lotion, make-up, perfume, powder, bath/shower oil residue in treatment areas). 

    • Arrive early! Your numbing cream takes time to take effect. If you are late, we may be forced to reschedule you.

    • Our skin care specialists insist on a free consultation before any treatment to review your aesthetic goals and health history. 

    • Due to the lidocaine in the numbing cream, you may feel numbness or tingling for a few hours after your appointment. 

    • Once we have established that Morpheus8 is the proper treatment for you, your skin is gently cleansed, and our specialist applies a numbing cream to the targeted areas. She then addresses each treatment area with the Morpheus8 handpiece. The device delivers RF energy through gold tipped micro-pins. The specialist customizes the depth of the pins depending on your goals and the area being treated to maximize results.

    • Downtime 2-7 days. You will likely have swelling, redness, tenderness, sunburn sensation, possible crusting or bruising over the treated areas. You will receive a topical ointment; no bandages or wraps are necessary.

    • In some cases, bruising & redness can persist for over 2 weeks (makeup may be applied after day 2). 

    • Space your sessions 4-6 weeks apart. Note: more than 3 sessions are suggested for optimal results. 

    • After a Morpheus8 treatment, you will notice that your skin looks smoother, and as the collagen tightens throughout recovery, you will see continued improvements. You look refreshed, more youthful, and the complexion of the treated area improves. 

    • Our skin care specialist ensures that each client understands what to expect pre-and post-treatment.
