Morpheus8 Treatment: A Patient’s Experience

The Morpheus8 is a micro-needling, radiofrequency energy device designed by InMode Aesthetics. This amazing energy device delivers two great technologies that tighten and lift skin. This non-invasive facelift is perfect for those patients who prefer not to undergo anesthesia or who are not yet in need of a surgical facelift.

Recently, my lovely patient Hallie Abrams, The Wardrobe Consultant, came in for her first Morpheus8 treatment. Hallie is in her early 50s. She’s not in need of a full facelift, but she would love to start lifting and tightening her face. This was the first of 3 treatments, so be sure to follow Hallie on Instagram as she continues to share her experience!

By the time we hit our 50s, our skin has lost a lot of elasticity. And for women, studies show that women’s skin loses about 30% of its collagen during the first 5 years of menopause, followed by about 2% per year for the following 20 years. So women experiencing menopause can stimulate collagen production with Morpheus8.

Morpheus8: Who It’s For

Who is a great candidate for Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is perfect for 40 to 60 year olds where their skin has lost so much elasticity, but they’re not quite ready for major lifting. So it’s just a little tweak-ment to just lift your skin and get all the collagen and elastin tighter. It works especially well in the patients who eat well and take care of themselves and their skin.

Patients with acne stars that do not respond to oral and/or topical medications are also great candidates for Morpheus8. The best thing about Morpheus8 is that it’s safe for all skin types. It effectively remodels skin with low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is common with other skin resurfacing methods.

Morpheus8: What It Treats

What conditions does Morpheus8 treat?

Morpheus8 treats fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, and tightens and lifts skin that has started to sag by increasing collagen production. This increased collagen production leaves skin looking firmer, tighter and younger-looking,  Morpheus8 combines the best of two technologies to combat the early signs of aging.

Main Benefits of Morpheus8:

Increase collagen production

After the age of 20, the dermis produces 1% less collagen each year.  Morpheus8 induces collagen production, resulting in firmer, fuller, and younger-looking skin.

Diminish fine lines and wrinkles

Morpheus8 improves aging around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.

Lift and tighten loose skin

Morpheus reduces sagging around your neck, chin, and jowls.  It can also help remove excess fat from the arms, bra line and other areas.

Minimize acne scarring

The treatment can shrink acne and acne scars that form after your acne has healed, reducing the appearance of acne scars by up to 50% and smooth out the skin’s overall texture.

Fade stretch marks

Morpheus8 helps fade stretch marks by breaking up scar tissue and fibrous tissue, leading to firming of the skin with better elasticity.

Morpheus8: How It Works


How does Morpheus8 work?

Before treatment, topical numbing cream is applied for about 10-15 minutes on the area to be treated.  If needed, other pain options are available.  During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed into the specific areas of your skin, allowing micro-needles to perforate the skin.  Once the micro-needles are in place, they generate radio-frequency (RF) waves to penetrate deep into the dermal layer.

Immediately after the treatment, moisturizer and sunblock is applied. You can sparingly apply makeup after that if you are going out.  You can expect mild redness and swelling (looks like a sunburn) immediately post-procedure which tends to subside in 2-3 days.  Avoid direct sunlight for 2-3 days after treatment.


How long does Morpheus8 take?

The Morpheus8 procedure typically takes 30 min to 1 hour to complete, depending on the treatment area(s). Results are generally seen a month after treatment with continued improvement over time.  Best results are mainly seen after the 2nd treatment.  A series of 3 is encouraged.  


Can you do the under eye area?

Yes, all areas of the face can be treated; treatment depths depend on skin thickness. So on your lower facial area we might run you at around a 4. And then around the eyes, because the skin is thinner, we’ll run you at a 2. So you can treat the entire facial area and you can actually treat the body too, such as lax skin on your belly, under your arms and your knees and arms and other places too.


Can you do other treatments at the same time?

You can, but you have to do it after the treatment. If we were to put some Botox or fillers in you, we would do it after the Morpheus treatment.  We just would not want to overdo things.
