What is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It utilizes small needles to deliver RF energy deep into your skin. This creates micro-trauma that activates your body’s healing ability and promotes new elastin and collagen production to remodel and firm skin. 


What Can Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Treat?

Morpheus8 benefits many different types of skin concerns. It can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, help tighten loose skin, even out rough or unsmooth skin texture, help enhance the look of acne scarring, and help fade stretch marks. Morpheus8 can be used anywhere on the body, but it is most popular on the face and neck. To achieve the best results, we recommend that you schedule 3 visits spaced 4-6 weeks apart. 

What Happens During a Morpheus8 Treatment?

Depending on the treatment area’s size, the procedure takes approximately 15 to 60 minutes. Morpheus8 differs from similar microneedling platforms because the radiofrequency heat delivered by the microneedles can be adjusted and customized to reach different depths of the dermal layers. 

You may feel dull discomfort and pressure during the procedure, but it’s typically not too painful due to the numbing agents.

What are the Side Effects of Morpheus8?

Though Morpheus8 is considered to be safe, you may experience some common temporary side effects. You may experience a small amount of bleeding, scabbing, swelling, or redness for a few days. You may also have pinprick marks from the needles, but these should fade on their own within two weeks.

There is no real damage to your skin, but the treatment creates controlled microdamage to stimulate the process. Microneedling results depend largely on the technique, and the heat from the RF energy can increase the risk of potential damage.

Morpheus8 FAQs

The cost of your Los Angeles Morpheus8 treatment depends on what you hope to achieve. To determine how Morpheus8 fits into your budget, you can get a price breakdown after a detailed consultation with Dr. Stanton.

The answer to this question depends on your skin’s quality and how it reacts to the first Morpheus8 treatment. Many people need at least three sessions to obtain the full benefits of Morpheus8. Since it takes a few weeks for your skin’s natural healing processes to take effect, we suggest scheduling appointments four to six weeks apart.

If you have stretch marks, Morpheus8 can help you reduce their appearance. It is a fully customized treatment that can be effective across your body. However, you may also benefit from other options for minimizing your stretch marks. By discussing your concerns with Dr. Stanton, you can get personalized treatment tailor-made to your requirements.

Morpheus8 uses microneedling to induce tiny injuries across your skin. These encourage your skin’s natural healing processes and stimulate collagen and elastin, two structural proteins that help reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. But unlike conventional microneedling, Morpheus8 also applies RF energy that further boosts collagen and elastin. This innovation provides you with better and faster results than getting microneedling alone.

The RF energy in Morpheus8 induces heat during the treatment. If this is a concern for you, rest assured that the device is fully adjustable. To help you avoid excessive discomfort, we also use numbing agents on your skin before starting each session.

Morpheus8 creates tiny injuries, while the RF energy generates heat across your skin. However, we will numb your skin beforehand, so you will feel safe and comfortable throughout your appointment. You may feel slight pain a few hours after your treatment. By following aftercare instructions from Dr. Stanton and his team, you can easily alleviate this.

Morpheus8 can make your skin more sensitive to UV damage such as hyperpigmentation. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight for at least 24 hours after each session. Afterward, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 before going outside, reapplying it every two hours.

The micro-trauma Morpheus8 creates can make dermal fillers less effective. If you have recently gotten fillers or any other cosmetic treatments, please tell Dr. Stanton about them during your initial consultation.
