Morpheus8 RF Microneedling for Face & Body

In the skin and body care spotlight is the combination of two popular skin rejuvenating procedures: microneedling and radiofrequency. Individually, these treatments work well to promote the production of new collagen and elastin for enhanced skin tone, texture, and firmness. Yet, microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) become elevated even further when combined into a single powerhouse treatment, known as RF microneedling.

Among the array of RF microneedling options, Morpheus8 stands out as the most potent and effective for all natural skin and body rejuvenation. Some even call it the next best thing to a facelift. Here’s everything you need to know about Morpheus8 RF Microneedling for Face & Body before diving into the treatment.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that improves the look of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, scars and acne scars, loose skin, and stretch marks. RF microneedling combines RF energy and microneedles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin safely and effectively. As these micro-injuries heal, they trigger the skin to produce new collagen and elastin for visible improvements.

The combined efforts of microneedling with radiofrequency enable the RF energy to be delivered far deeper into the dermis at the optimal temperature to stimulate collagen.

Unlike skin lasers, which emit a single wavelength of energy absorbed by the skin, RF microneedling outfits the thin, tiny needles with RF energy for a one-two punch to improve the skin.

Regardless of their depth or brand name, all RF microneedling devices function the same: they employ needles to puncture the skin while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency energy. This dual action induces a controlled injury in the skin, kickstarting the body’s natural healing mechanisms. As the body responds to the injury, the treated area’s skin transforms, becoming thicker, firmer, and more youthful.

How Does Morpheus8 Work on
the Face and Body?

No matter where you choose to have Morpheus8 done, the way the treatment works is the same. The safe and efficient minimally-invasive RF microneedling treatment is designed to address various areas of the body and face. Through radiofrequency and microneedling technologies, Morpheus8 effectively reduces fat (for body treatments), stimulates collagen, and tightens the skin. This non-surgical solution, which the FDA cleared, delivers energy at the optimal treatment depth of up to 8 millimeters depending on where it is used, allowing the results to surpass those of other RF microneedling machines and procedures.

Morpheus 8 utilizes bipolar fractional tissue remodeling, stimulating collagen production in the dermis. It addresses unwanted pockets of stubborn fat in specific areas of the body by emitting heat to remodel collagen on both the face and body while tightening loose skin. The treatment’s varying needle depths can accommodate different face and body areas, and the treatment is calibrated to go deeper in places like the abdomen, arms, and thighs since the body can tolerate more depth and fat reduction than the face. The dual handpieces of Morpheus8 allow the treatment to be successfully carried out on both small and large areas.

A notable feature of Morpheus8 is its burst mode of RF energy. This automatically delivers RF energy at varying depths during a single cycle to address all three skin levels. The burst mode feature found in Morpheus8 ensures shorter treatment time and improved uniformity in terms of the results. It also minimizes the risk of skin injuries and allows customization of full-body fractional procedures.

Morpheus8 is a far less invasive alternative to body sculpting and fat-removing procedures like liposuction. Plus, it can adequately target fat cells deep beneath the skin due to the treatment’s depth. The device’s predictable energy levels contribute to consistent results. Your provider can easily adjust the Morpheus8 device to negate the risk of heat-induced burns and pigment issues. While Morpheus8 results are not immediate, and patients may experience some mild post-treatment redness and swelling that usually resolves within a few days, you will see an initial glow in your skin after a treatment, and the full results are usually most noticeable after three months. Healing for the body typically takes longer than the face.

The Ideal Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is an effective solution for many people due to its reduced risk of discoloration and scarring. The treatment can safely be used on those with darker skin types since the likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation with the treatment is minimal to none. The selective emission of radiofrequency energy solely from the needle tips ensures compatibility with nearly every skin type and tone, as the top layer of the skin remains unheated.

Although the procedure is safe for all skin tones and types, we recommend a consultation first to ensure you are a candidate for Morpheus8. A consultation with a team member will ensure that Morpheus8 is suitable to address your concerns and aligns with your skin characteristics.

How Much Does Morpheus8 Cost?

The cost of a Morpheus8 treatment varies among providers, with some charging higher prices, which is often seen in larger cities. Additionally, other factors, such as the treatment area and the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results, play a role in determining the overall cost.
