How Does Morpheus8 Skin Resurfacing Work?

Morpheus8 is a groundbreaking device produced by InMode, one of the world’s leading producers of aesthetic medical technologies. The Morpheus8 device combines the benefits of two essential skin resurfacing treatments — microneedling and radiofrequency energy. The Morpheus8 device contains microneedles that rejuvenate the uppermost layers of the skin’s surface and deliver radiofrequency energy into the deep dermis, stimulating collagen production and skin cell regeneration. This treatment boosts the results of traditional microneedling.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that involves making controlled micro-channels on the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives your skin its structure and shape — it binds your skin tissues together, making your skin look firm, voluminous, and youthful. The loss of collagen leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Microneedling activates your body’s innate collagen production capabilities, thus reversing the signs of aging.

Radiofrequency Energy

What sets Morpheus8 apart from traditional microneedling is its use of radiofrequency technology. When the microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface, Morpheus8 delivers radiofrequency energy deep within the skin’s surface to stimulate natural regeneration. Radiofrequency energy has been proven to offer significant collagen production and skin contracture benefits. As such, radiofrequency energy boosts the results of microneedling, making your skin look smoother and firmer, and the results appear faster.

What Makes Morpheus8 Unique?

  • Customizable Depth: Traditional microneedling devices can’t be customized according to the patient’s skin type and depth, leading to harsh side effects. Morpheus8 allows the medical providers to customize the tips and microneedling depth during the session.
  • Increased Needle Depth: Traditional microneedling devices rejuvenate up to 2 millimeters of the skin’s surface, but Morpheus8 can rejuvenate up to 4 millimeters. As such, Morpheus8 is more effective in areas with denser skin tissues, such as the cheeks.
  • Radiofrequency Technology: Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy, which boosts and catalyzes the results of traditional microneedling. Your skin will look smoother, firmer, and more youthful after RF microneedling.

The Morpheus8 Process

Morpheus8 skin resurfacing is performed as an in-office treatment that concludes within 60 minutes. The medical provider examines your facial skin, discusses your goals, and selects the appropriate depth for the Morpheus8 device. A numbing gel is applied to your skin to ensure comfort. The medical provider moves the Morpheus8 handheld device across your skin, punching thousands of micro-channels on your skin’s surface at various depths. You can expect mild but tolerable pain and discomfort.

Side Effects & Downtime

Morpheus8 is an extremely safe procedure with minimal post-treatment side effects. Most patients experience mild redness, discomfort, irritation, and swelling in the treatment areas. You might also experience mild pinpoint bleeding for a few minutes. After the treatment, you can resume your daily activities and work immediately, provided you avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen. You should also avoid heavy workouts until the swelling recedes.

Results: Onset & Longevity

Morpheus8 skin resurfacing produces cumulative benefits and results. Your skin may look smoother and tighter a few weeks after the treatment once your body starts producing new collagen fibers. However, most patients need 3 to 4 sessions a few weeks apart for optimal results. You may also need one or two yearly maintenance treatments after the initial series of 4 treatments — please consult your medical provider.
