Morpheus8, developed by InMode, represents the cutting-edge in microneedling technology. Unlike traditional methods that primarily stimulate collagen production through controlled skin injury, Morpheus8 penetrates much deeper (up to 8mm) utilizing radiofrequency energy to tighten and revitalize the skin. This advanced fractional treatment effectively tackles a range of skin issues, from stubborn acne scars to moderate signs of aging. It’s versatile, suitable for addressing aging signs, sun damage, laxity, uneven tone, texture issues, and acne anywhere on the body. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and knees.

 How does RF microneedling work?

 RF microneedling operates much like its traditional counterpart. It employs a specialized handpiece equipped with 24 silicone-coated microneedles to deeply penetrate the skin, creating minuscule channels that trigger your body’s innate wound-healing response. Simultaneously, the handpiece emits bipolar radiofrequency energy, generating mild heat that induces collagen contraction. This dual-action approach results in skin tightening and a stimulation of your skin’s natural collagen production, which tends to decline as early as your 30s. In essence, RF microneedling offers an enhanced method for tightening the skin and refreshing its overall appearance.

What can I expect after my Morpheus8 treatment?

 Immediately after Morpheus8, it’s common to experience slight swelling and redness like a mild sunburn. Don’t worry, these are normal reactions indicating that the treatment is stimulating collagen production.

It’s essential to follow the Morpheus8 post-care instructions to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. Start with the application of a bland moisturizer or a healing ointment on the just-treated skin. Avoid using any harsh chemicals or products containing alpha-hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid during the early days after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Cleaning and Moisturizing: On the day after Morpheus8, gently cleanse your face using a soothing cleanser and lukewarm water. Never use hot water as it can lead to additional swelling. Keep your skin hydrated with gentle moisturizers or products like elta MD skin recovery serum, AuqaPhor. Avoid using any aggressive treatment products until the skin is fully healed.
  2. Sun Protection: Avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week after treatment. When you must go out, wear a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen minimum SPF 30, or a physical sunscreen with titanium dioxide, which is ideal for sunburned skin. Avoid tanning beds and any other artificial tanning activities. We recommend eltaMD clear broad spectrum SPF46.
  3. Makeup After Morpheus8: Wait for at least 24 hours after treatment before you apply makeup. Always ensure that your makeup brushes are clean to prevent introducing irritants or bacteria to your healing skin.
  4. Exfoliation: Exfoliating after Morpheus8 should be done cautiously. Wait for at least a week post-Morpheus8 treatment before you consider exfoliating. Even then, consult with your skin care specialist for advice based on your skin type.
  • Alcohol After Morphues8: Refrain from drinking alcohol for at least 48 hours post-treatment. Alcohol can interfere with your body’s normal blood clotting, which is necessary for the healing micro-injuries caused by Morpheus8.   
  • Physical Activity:  Avoid strenuous activity, saunas, and hot baths for the first few days after treatment. These can exacerbate swelling and delay healing time. You should be able to resume normal activities within a day or two, but always follow your practitioner’s specific advice. 
  • Vitamin C and Retinol After Morpheus8: Wait 5 days after Morpheus8 before reintroducing Vitamin C, retinol products, or other anti-aging products into your skincare regimen.   

For optimal results, most patients find regular Morpheus8 sessions beneficial, typically spaced one month apart. During your consultation with our team, we’ll tailor a personalized treatment plan aligned with your specific goals.

Following your initial treatment, you’ll likely notice a visible enhancement in your skin tone and texture. By the third session, you can expect to see improvements in skin elasticity and tightening. After undergoing six treatments, acne scars should begin to diminish. The increase in collagen production typically becomes evident within 3-6 months post-treatment. Over time, you’ll witness further refinement in skin tightness, brightness, and youthfulness, with final results continuing to manifest in the subsequent weeks and months.

The longevity of Morpheus8 results typically spans around a year, contingent upon factors such as your age and the specifics of your procedure. However, incorporating annual maintenance treatments and adhering to a regimen of high-quality skincare can extend the duration of these results, ensuring they endure for a longer period.

 To achieve the most optimal results, it’s typically recommended to undergo three consecutive Morpheus8 treatments, with each session spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Continuous treatments are often beneficial for adapting to your evolving skincare needs. With Morpheus8, there’s no set maximum limit on the number of treatments you can receive, as long as they are spaced out adequately to allow for optimal results and skin recovery between sessions.

The duration of Morpheus8 treatments fluctuates based on the size and sensitivity of the targeted area. To ensure comfort during the procedure, we apply a topical anesthetic, which typically remains on the skin for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The treatment itself usually lasts between 30 to 60 minutes on average, allowing ample time for precision and effectiveness in addressing your specific skincare concerns.
