What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a skin treatment using radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support for the skin, and elastin is the protein that allows your skin to return to its normal shape after you stretch it by smiling, frowning and making other movements.

As you age, elastin and collagen production decline, producing visible signs of aging. Stimulating the production of these essential proteins can give you a more youthful appearance.

The technical term for Morpheus8 is subdermal adipose remodeling. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, Morpheus8 resurfacing treatments allow for subtle contouring of the treatment area without much downtime. Before each session, the treatment provider applies a topical numbing cream to ensure you don’t feel discomfort during Morpheus8.

Morpheus8 is safe for all skin tones and skin types, making it a versatile treatment that erases some of the most visible signs of aging. Skin contouring with Morpheus8 can also improve skin texture and remodel fat in the treated area.

What Areas Can Morpheus8 Treat?

Morpheus8 is well-suited to any skin surface affected by wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture, stretch marks or scarring. Acne scarring on the skin’s surface responds particularly well to Morpheus8 fractional resurfacing. This treatment is also helpful for jowling, under-eye bags, frown lines, aging lines and skin imperfections on the abdomen, arms and knees.

how it works


On average, a Morpheus8 treatment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour


The recovery time after a Morpheus8 treatment is generally minimal. Most people are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure, and there is no downtime required. Some people may experience some mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, but this typically subsides within a few hours to a day.


The full effects of the treatment may not be apparent for several weeks to several months, as the skin continues to heal and the underlying structures are remodeled. Some people may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results, and the exact number of treatments needed will depend on the individual and their specific concerns.

What Are The Benefits Of Morpheus8?

One of the main advantages of Morpheus8 is that it helps tighten skin. The loss of collagen and elastin as you age contributes to loose skin on your face, neck and other areas of the body. Morpheus8 helps tighten the skin and avoid those loose folds by stimulating elastin and collagen production.

Another benefit of Morpheus8 is that it targets the deeper layers of the skin. This leads to remodeling in the dermis and epidermis, giving you better results with Morpheus8 than with some other resurfacing treatments.

What many clients appreciate about Morpheus8 resurfacing methods is that the results are immediately apparent. You can complete several sessions after you see results. As soon as you finish your first treatment, you’ll see an immediate improvement in the texture of your skin. Morpheus8 is also minimally invasive, eliminating the need to take time off from work to recover from your treatment.

Morpheus8 Vs. Vivace

Vivace and Morpheus8 have some of the same benefits, but they work in different ways. Like Morpheus8, Vivace combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology. What’s different is that Vivace requires a cooling mask and special serum. Morpheus8 can also destroy fat cells under the skin, trimming excess fat and providing excellent contouring results.

Morpheus8 Vs. Ultherapy

Morpheus8 is a skin resurfacing treatment, while Ultherapy is designed specifically for skin lifting and tightening. Like Morpheus8, Ultherapy targets loose skin and gives you a more youthful appearance. The main difference is that it uses ultrasound rather than microneedling and RF energy. It’s typically used to stimulate collagen production in the skin of the chest, neck, chin and brow area.

Morpheus8 Vs. Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro lesions in the skin. These lesions don’t cause lasting damage, but they stimulate collagen production, reducing signs of aging and giving you smoother skin. Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology, giving you additional benefits.

What To Expect After Morpheus8

After your first Morpheus8 treatment, you’ll immediately notice an improved complexion. Other benefits, such as wrinkle reduction and reduced acne scarring, should become apparent after one to five Morpheus8 sessions. How many treatments you need depends on several factors, including your current skin complexion, how much sun damage your skin has and whether you have active acne.

After each treatment, you may experience some redness, mild bruising or pinpoint bleeding. These symptoms should disappear within 1 to 3 days.

To achieve optimal results, it’s important to care for your skin properly after a Morpheus8 treatment. Within 24 hours of Morpheus8, you should wear broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays. You should also avoid direct sun exposure.

If you have to touch the treated area, wash your hands first to prevent the transfer of bacteria. As always, it’s important to hydrate the skin. Clean your face with a mild cleanser and pat it dry with a soft cloth. Once your skin is dry, apply a soothing ointment or a pH-balanced moisturizer. You should be able to start applying makeup within about 2 days of your treatment.
