Morpheus8™ is an advanced skin care technology that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This revolutionary device can tighten loose skin, minimize facial scars and other skin tone and texture imperfections, and reduce the severity of fine lines and wrinkles. While microneedling is already known as a highly effective collagen induction therapy, by adding RF energy, you can expect even better results, often faster.
Morpheus8™ is a minimally invasive RF treatment that is safe and effective for your face and body.

Am I a Candidate for Morpheus8™?
Morpheus8™ is effective and safe for all skin types. If you want to improve several common signs of aging, Morpheus8™ may be the solution for you.
However, if you are pregnant, nursing, or suffer from sores or rashes, you should discuss this at your consultation. Morpheus8™ treatments should not be used during active breakouts, and your provider will want to ensure that receiving treatment will not trigger an episode.
What Is Discussed During My Morpheus8™ Consultation?
During your consultation, your provider will listen carefully to your concerns and goals and answer your questions about the treatment.
They will also assess the areas you would like treated to ensure that Morpheus8™ is the best method to address your skin condition.
How Does Morpheus8™ Differ From Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® treatment is limited to the face, neck, and decolletage, and produces lifting in the deeper layers. Morpheus8™ tightens the skin and is versatile enough to treat any areas of the face and body, with results lasting between three and five years. Morpheus8™ works well for a wider age range and we find it to have greater effect on superficial lines and scars in the skin, as well as loose skin.
What Areas Can Morpheus8™ Treat?
Morpheus8™ can treat all these areas:
The versatility and effectiveness of Morpheus8™ offers effective treatment for your face and body that you will enjoy for years.
How Is the Morpheus8™ Procedure Performed, and How does it Work?
Morpheus8™ stimulates rapid collagen growth deep within the skin. This process occurs when radiofrequency energy is distributed through electrodes attached to the microneedles. These tiny needles penetrate about one millimeter into the dermis.
This advanced microneedling treatment triggers an abundance of new collagen to smooth and tighten all skin types.
We offer our clients a choice of oral sedation and topical numbing, as well as the revolutionary PRO-NIX™ to ensure a comfortable treatment experience, although a mild heat sensation is normal.
How Long Is Recovery After a Morpheus8™ Treatment?
Only minimal side effects are associated with the Morpheus8™ procedure. You may experience some redness and swelling following the treatment, which typically subside in a few days.
How Much Does a Morpheus8™ Treatment Cost?
Morpheus8™ treatment costs will depend on how many areas are being treated and the number of sessions needed.
Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like at your consultation, including the cost of your treatment.
When Will I See My Morpheus8™ Results?
Most patients undergo three to four sessions depending upon their skin type, age, and goals. Expect to see more dramatic results in about four weeks with continued improvement over the following weeks.
